I was keeping a log in the fat loss section, but decided to come here since my needs and goals have changed. After tweaking my diet, I've come up with a 1,490-calorie plan that has 58% fat, 37% protein, and 5% carbs. It's not the ideal 65/30/5, but it's going to have to do. I already had to add 3T of olive oil just to bring it up to 58% fat and I'm grossed out just thinking about eating the extra grease.
Keto may take some time getting used to, but I am determined to see it through. In addition to wanting to lose a lot of fat from my body, I'm also motivated to do this diet long-term to hopefully reduce my risk of cancer. Everyone in my family (except a couple unlucky victims of a car wreck) has died of cancer. I read that cancer thrives on sugar, so maybe keto will be the thing that breaks this yucky family tradition.
Here's the menu plan for this week, starting on Monday. If I can hack it, I'll be skipping the carb up for this coming Saturday to ensure ketosis.
