all the ladies are in this forum then I would have started keto much much earlier. For now I'm going to try 60 35 5. Lots of nuts <3, turkey, beef [steak], chicken, eggs, tuna, oils, and VEG! Spinach, broc, avocado, mushrooms!, lettuce, cabbage, peppers, coconut!!!... Yet I don't want to over do it with veg carbs, which leads me to my question:
As cheap as a food scale probably is, I don't have one yet, so I was curious.. what does 100g of something look like? The reason I ask is all the macro values in this wonderful chart are analyzed from 100g of various things. *Edit and by 100g of something, I mean 100g of some of the previously mentioned veg, and perhaps 100g of any veg you feel is pretty staple.
And one more question, will an enzyme supplement such as NOW Super Enzymes lead to assimilation of fiber?
Reps to quality responses, thanks

100g will depend on the density of the food, which measure weight PER unit of volume.
Think of how different 100g of peanut butter (~6 tablespoons) vs. 100g of cotton candy, marhmallows, or popcorn. Buy a scale at Target for $30, or find one online for less.squat: 390

Don't worry about over doing the vegetable carbs. I have never ever heard of anyone being kicked out of ketosis by too much broccoli. Fill half your plate (at least) with greens at every meal and enjoy them.
As a rule of thumb, 100g is close enough to the amount you'd probably get served in a restaurant of most veg. At home, you'd probably serve yourself about 100-130g of meat but a restaurant will serve between 150-200g. A fillet of salmon is usually around 100-120g. The meat in a plain McDonald's burger is about 56g. A small chicken breast is about 100g cooked weight.65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs = keto.
