The keto diet Pakistan craze took off roughly a year ago, and ever since it’s one of the most popular diets here. In the past five years, I let myself go and let the pressures of my bachelors degree consume me. Burgers and fries and pizzas here and there because I had very less time to eat before classes started.

I also had/have PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome, which further contributed to weight gain. And because PCOS made me insulin-resistant, I was at a higher risk of diabetes, heart diseases, etc.

Then this January I found the ketogenic diet

A friend of mine just happened to add me to a Facebook group named Ketogenic Diet Pakistan. As I scrolled down the posts, I could see story upon story about how people had transformed and improved their health with the diet in only a couple of weeks.

My priority, first and foremost, was to get rid of PCOS and having gone to many doctors, all of them had told me to lose weight if I wanted to get better. So I knew I had to push myself super hard.

I wasn’t aware of many diets before except for the high protein one (Atkins?) which was where my knowledge ended. I repeatedly told myself that this wasn’t going to be a crash diet – that I had to change my lifestyle and then focus on eating healthy even after I reach my target weight.

That Keto life.

A post shared by The Keto Box (@theketobox) on

The ketogenic diet is very simply put a high-fat, low-carb diet. It’s roughly 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbohydrates.

The keto in ketogenic comes from ketones. Ketones are small fuel molecules that are produced in the liver from fat and are an alternative source of energy when you eat a moderate amount of protein and very, very few carbs.

Hence, in keto, your body runs almost entirely on fat. Your insulin levels drop, after which fat burning picks up speed and you lose weight. When your body is in ketosis, the best thing about it is that you feel less hungry but never short on energy.

So I researched on the internet, read the pinned post in the Ketogenic Diet Pakistan group, even went through peoples meal plans

Here is my diet plan for the entire month (later on I’ll jump into the specifics)

8 am – 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar with 2 sips of water

8:15 am – 1 litre water

9:15 am – Omelette with 2 eggs, one slice of cheese and sliced mushrooms

11 am – Green tea (Tapal tea bags – simple)

1 pm – Salad (mostly greens, feta cheese, at times strawberries)

4 pm – Strawberries or almonds as snack, green tea

7 pm – Butter chicken, keema shimla mirch (cottage cheese on the side), palak paneer, sometimes bhindi and kerelay

8 pm – Green tea with lemon squeezed

I did all the cooking using desi ghee or white butter

Consumed a total of 3 – 5 litres of water a day

You will lose around 3-4 kgs in the first week – water weight – and then it’s all about how you manage it. There are multiple lists available online showing what’s allowed, what isn’t. Check those out and you’ll get the idea.

Say bye bye to carbs

These are some meals I ate during my month-long keto diet
Strawberry Salad from Rina’s Kitchenette

This one was a lifesaver in times of confusion. I usually picked out the croutons in this and ate fork fulls of the rest. A few people might not like the leafy greens with the strawberries but it was good enough for me.

Turkish Bowl from Eat Smart

Has a lot of healthy options for keto-doers. You just have to be wary of a few carbs here and there, especially in sauces and high-carb vegetables like tomatoes and onions. This Turkish bowl is greek yogurt, mince, boiled eggs and loads of herbs. Melts in your mouth and sufficient for two meals.

Fish Handi from GreenHouse

This one’s great for when you want to ditch chicken and mutton and beef. It’s very flavorful, with the usual desi masala, and cooked to perfection. The serving was enough to last for lunch and dinner, so that’s what I did with it. I’d usually slice a cucumber and munch on it too. No harm was done!

Similar salads and dishes helped me lose 10 kgs in a month. It doesn’t matter if you eat from home or outside, but prefer eating from home because not many places cook with ghee or butter. I’m happy I found the Ketogenic Diet Pakistan group on Facebook, for I wouldn’t have stuck to any diet without seeing proper results.

I’m still on the diet, in my next month. Let me know if you want me to vlog my routine from this month and let’s all keto together!
