We try to maintain a keto way of eating during our affordable upscale full time travel.
When we decided to become digital nomads we knew we didn’t want to be chubby – and we were.
In order to live light we had to get light.
We started by getting back to the gym and running.
Jogging would be something we could do just about anywhere in the world! We were dedicated and got in shape pretty quickly, losing 5 to 7 pounds.
But then we both just get so BORED running. We knew it was not a long-term solution.
Lisa did her deep-dive research and reading thing and determined that best approach for our lifestyle would be to adopt something between a Dirty Keto and South Beach approach to eating. Basically high fat, low carb, low sugar.
Matt was, to put it politely, skeptical.
No bread? No crispy french fries? Lots of olive oil and avocado? Seemed like a great way to be miserable AND get fat.
But we gave it a go and found that not only did the weight melt away, our relationship with food changed.
When we taught our bodies to burn fat instead of sugar and carbs we were less hungry and less inclined to snack. At this point we haven’t had a piece of bread since June 2018 and are each down around 30 pounds.
