For 2021, I decided to recommit to Keto. Not only recommit, but I am pledging to do one full year of zero Keto cheats! Sounds crazy…maybe. When I was successful on Keto the first time around, the one thing I made sure to do was be super strict. It worked for me. So while 365 days of no cheating may seem crazy to some, I know it is exactly what I need to do to get back on track!

Zero Keto Cheats for 365 Days
The very first time my husband and I did Keto, we very rarely, if ever cheated. We both had amazing results. I had lost close to 90 pounds, and my husband lost 125 pounds. Our weight loss transformation was amazing.
Besides looking great, we felt fantastic. And then life happened. In January of 2018, I had to have my gallbladder removed (unrelated to Keto…so don’t come at me that the diet caused this…it didn’t). As if one surgery in 2018 wasn’t enough, I ended up having to have a very extensive knee surgery that resulted in two more surgeries for a total of three surgeries in just over a years time. Staying Keto while I was recovering from those surgeries, and essentially relearning how to walk, was too much and I strayed.

Covid Weight Gain
During our main Covid quarantine, I did what a lot of people did. I baked, baked, and baked some more. It was during that time that my husband and I decided to give Weight Watchers a whirl. I know that program is successful for a lot of people, but for us, it was not. The only diet or “lifestyle change” that worked for us was Keto. So we decided to make our way back to it. It was then that I decided to make a goal for myself for 2021 to dedicate that year to zero Keto cheats. So far I am one month in and 100% successful on my goal!
Keyto Breath Sensor
Shortly before the new year, I was approached to test out the Keyto Breath Sensor. I was stoked! The first time we tried Keto, we bought the strips to pee on to see if we were in Ketosis. Sometimes they worked, more times than not, they didn’t. I could go into a billion and one reasons why they didn’t work, but I won’t bore you with it. The strips are not cheap and once you open the container, you need to use them up within one months time. We did not know this. The Keyto Breath Sensor, on the other hand, is a one time purchase. Slip a AAA battery into it and it works and works and works!
How Does it Work?
This is probably the easiest thing in the world to use. Simply turn it on, sync it with your app, and allow it to warm up. Once you are given the OK from the app, exhale into the device, making sure to completely blow all your air out until your lungs are empty. This device is measuring the level of acetone in your breath, which will then tell it what level of Ketosis you are in. I first used this one week into restarting Keto. So I was very interested to see if I was even in Ketosis yet. I was! This device not only was reassuring to me that I was doing things right, but let’s face it, it is WAY better to breathe into something than have to pee on something. Am I right, or am I right?!
