Question for any body who has had success on Keto
Do you have to stay no carbs for two weeks or do five days and go right into your carb loading?Thanks
Seems like working for me
[QUOTE=Eileen]Spend half an hour in the meat and poultry section of a good supermarket. Food should all be labeled with nutritional information. Ideally, go for the amount per 100g, not per portion. Your portion size will not be the same as Joe Average. If you can, get out a notebook and take down the details of the stuff you eat yourself. All figures will be for raw meat, but I think this is more accurate than trying to guess cooked.
As a quick starter:
Salmon (100g) 215 cal, 20g pro, 15g fat.
Tuna 150 21 7
Lamb chop 290 21 23
Sirloin steak 200 22 13
Pork chop 225 20 16
Prawns 90 19 2
Streaky rasher 250 17 20[/QUOTE]
Hi Eileen and guys; just wanted to give you an update; I started this diet last Monday(March 27th); I was 169 lbs 5.6" tall...and when I checked yesterday (monday morning) I was 160 lbs.. WHOOOOHOOOOO;
Now I beleive this is mostly water and may be some fat I am loosing, but after 3 or 4 days I have no problem doing this diet for a long time
May typical meals are like this( I know it is not perfect.. but getting there)
Morning around 8:30 am two eggs and two strips of bacon;15ml flaxseed oil
around 12 noon Either chicken breast or beaf( around 150 grms), or pork chops with lot of green beans and broccili
around 3;30 pm well first week I did not eat much this meal just had some nuts or cheese sticks(2). but started to eat meal since this monday
peice of steak, or chicken or sausage (around 150 grams) with veggies
Around 9pm Fish fillet or steak ot 2 suasages or any meat with veggies
So, apart from this I take a multivitamin; didn;t do much of lifitng last week as I was feeling really tired and I was sick too :(
I am pleased with my progress as people at my office say I look like I lost weight and my face is small(less fat I guess) and I am looking good. Not perfect but getting there.
Now I have few questions/ concerns
Since I am eating lot of eggs/fat what about the cheolestrol? should I be concerned about it at all?
Since I started this diet I had dry cough which is not going away even after 10 days; I am smoker(I feel sorry), but that doesn;t mean I shouldn't cough for 10 days. does it have anything to do with diet?
I did not buy keto sticks to test myself as I am seeing good results, but do you think I should check to make sure? according to my girlfriend(jokingly) Pee always smell and My mouth stinck as I am smoker. so no way to know throught those signs .
what do you guys think of my diet? is it close enough? do I need to chaneg any thing? I am trying for 2000 cal a day
A BIG QUESTION: how do u add Fat to meals? I seem to ran out of ideas for this.
Any comments suggestions are welcome and much appreciated
A special THANKS to EILEEN to get me started on this
