My 12 Days of Keto Plan is as follows:
I will fast for 16 hours each day (24 hour period) and have an 8 hour eating window.
During these 8 hours I will drink coffee with heavy cream, unsweetened black teas and of course water.
During these 8 hours I will eat meat, butter, eggs, fish, cheese, cream cheese, yogurt and probably some sauteed vegetables with dinner.
I will weigh myself each morning after waking up and before eating.
I will drink a big cup of water after waking up and every 1.5-2 hours after that with some real salt sprinkled in as well.
I plan to stop eating between 6PM or 7PM each night and cease IF at 10AM or 11AM accordingly.
I will post an update on my author blog each day. Simple text, no fancy graphics or gimmicks.
My 12 Days of Keto begin 12-26-2022 and end 1-06-2023.
I hope to drop at least 10 pounds in that time. I think my ideal weight is 160 with a little more muscle. I am more of a Dwarf than an Elf in stature.
This 12 days thing is just a fun gimmick to get me started. My ideal is likely IF + Carnivore, but I my heavy cream in coffee. It is a delight. I’ll assess every 2 weeks or so as I go forward to fine tune.

In rushing to get to work this morning, I totally forgot to weigh myself. I also got up late, so that isn’t good. I plan to get up a bit earlier than my usual time tomorrow and make sure I get on that scale. I have been consistently weighing myself at the same time and I plan to keep that up. That being said, I don’t know how weighing myself “off schedule” will effect my observations. I had water and coffee and a bit of yogurt before doing my late weight measurement. Life happens I guess, but I will do my best to keep myself on schedule.
