We spent last week in Cancun and it was my first vacation since switching to the ketogenic way of eating. It is a timeshare resort so the room included a full kitchen.
I’m happy to say it was easier than I anticipated and gave me confidence I can vacation while Keto. 🙂
The best news is that not only did I eat 100% keto on the trip but also lost over a pound! My weight loss total as of last Sunday was 14.2 pounds.
Blood ketones were in nutritional ketosis each day so I was happy with that too.
Foot cramps is still a problem occasionally when I travel despite taking potassium and magnesium supplements. My first KetoKrate included Ultima Replenisher (affiliate link) which is keto friendly.
I had one packet every day in water and it did the trick; no cramps all week despite sweating a lot.
Another product I bought in anticipation of our vacation was cocktail flavoring. RSVP Skinnies (affiliate link) comes in multiple flavors and I got this variety pack.
I had the margarita mix with tequila and soda and the cranberry twist with vodka sodas.

More food pics from the week.
Again I didn’t eat the rice in the fajitas picture; my husband helped out there.
This week I traveled to North Carolina (the day after we returned from Cancun) to see Dr. Eric Westman as a HealCare patient. There’ll be more to come on that soon. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to staying on the ground the rest of September.
