I tried following Kourtney Kardashian’s keto diet for a week, and it was… hell. – Mamamia

Kourtney tries not to snack between meals, but if she is really hungry, she will have tea, nuts or bone broth. I drink approximately 100000 cups of green tea and eat 12 pecans. They do not fill me up.

keto-friendly-but-it-tastes-ok Thank God for this earlier in the week. Not actually sure if keto friendly but tastes okay.

After dinner I notice Poosh has shared a recipe for ‘coconut butter keto cups’ so I obviously have to make them. They’re not great, but I still eat them. I don’t even like coconut. I don’t know who I am anymore.

Day five

I don’t know if it’s because my body has adjusted or if it’s because I know this is the last day of this stupid challenge, but I barely feel hungry at all. I do, however, feel tired, weak and grumpy all day. I proceed to pick two fights with my sister over nothing ¯\_()_/¯

I go through the motions: make the smoothie, eat the salad, force down tofu and broccoli, and celebrate the end of the day by eating a coconut butter keto cup.

I then sleep for 10 hours.

Final thoughts

Look. I’ll admit this diet was not the worst. Boring and repetitive, yes, but the food was fine and surprisingly filling.

The downside? I felt constantly lethargic, grumpy and stopped enjoying or looking forward to food. I felt less bloated, yes, but also less happy. I missed normal food, normal smoothies, and feeling a bit leaner just was not worth the restriction.

Because it turns out – unsurprisingly – that almost everything tastes better than skinny feels.
