View Full Version : First Keto Log, Second log in general
My workout log is over here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=6191991 and I've finally decided to start this keto thing. I wanted to start in October but I never got around to it. Too many excuses and not enough of doing what I want to do. My plan is to loose around 15lbs right now by mid to late march. If I hit that 15lbs before then, I am going to continue to around 20lbs, but no more. I believe 15lbs to be around the proper amount of weight to loose, that's 10 weeks that I am giving myself and that translates into 1.5 each week.
My goal-160lbs by March 25.
It went well today. I managed to get in about 130g of fat and about the same for protein, and less then 15 carbs. That's not as much as I needed though, seeing as my body weight is around 170. I am going to have up both the fat and the protein. The fat around 20 grams or so and the protein double that. So today I got in about 1700 calories, which is 400 less then my target of 2100.
Today went well, around 150 grams of fat and 180 of protein with maybe 5 carbs and that coming from the cheese I ate. I'm going to start introducing some oils into my diet and hopefully eat something else besides real eggs, as the level of cholesterol concerns me a little.
Just about right today with my fat an protein. I had around 135 grams of fat and 160 grams of protein with about 10 carbs. I tried to workout tonight but my balance is a little off, more due to the fact that I zero experience in Bulgarian squats more then anything else.
It went ok today. Nothing to spectacular or wonderful about it, but I am getting my fats and proteins down I think. I had about 150-160g of fat today and 170g of protein. I was wondering how I could get in something for my last meal today that was lower in fat but high in protein. It was easy: tuna salad made with full fat mayo, a can of tuna, and fake eggs. The eggs have about 1 carb per serving so that wasn't too bad. It came out to be something like 45g of protein for 10 grams of fat and 3-4 carbs. I want to lower my fat a little, by maybe 10 grams and aim for around 140. My overall carbs for the day was around 15 or so. I don't use any nutrition website to watch my calories really. I rely more on what the package says and subtract a few grams of fat, no more then 3-5 and a gram of protein. I hope this doesn't screw up my results too badly.
Tomorrow is my first day working out since I began keto and I am considering bringing up my protein to reflect this new level of intensity. I am thinking of keeping my fats around 140-150, but my protein level is going to hover around 180. This is roughly 600 below my maintenance, plus with my workout tomorrow, the weight should start to drop off fairly fast. I plan on setting a new PR workout weight with my deadlift and it shouldn't be a problem. I experimented with my bench press tonight and I did my normal workout weight just fine.
I hit a PR today, although my form needs work. I think I was a little low for everything today, so for the next couple of days I am going to eat just a little more and play "catch up"

You're 19. Don't go too far below maintenance. Especially trying to get in ketosis I wouldn't skimp on the fat. If you hit your 30% protein and go over on fat oh well. It's more important to get into keto first IMO
I hit keto three days ago actually. I'm registering between trace and small amounts. I'm trying to get about 2000-2200 calories a day. My maintenance calories is around 2600. I'm learning still so I may bring up my fats still. I've lost about 6lbs so far and if I should tweak my diet so that I loose the weight "correctly" then I will
Went pretty well today. I'm starting to loose a little oomph so I might be running low on carbs which is good (I hope). I just need to monitor my calories a little closer.
Forgot to update yesterday. I am still working on my calories as I have yet to really find out where I should focus them. I have reports of 13 * your body weight and 15. I am averaging about 130 grams of fat and 150 grams of protein over the past two days which isn't too bad. I just need to watch out for hidden carbs.
OK, it's been too long since I updated this thing. My diet has suffered a little and I need to get back on track. Everything I think has been too low and that might explain why I have been so tired lately. I am going to go another week before carbing up and doing this week as clean as I can.
