    jcpryor3 - My Ketogenic Lifestyle has begun!

    Hey everyone! Today is the first day of my new Ketogenic lifestyle. I have been reading up on the Ketogenic diet for almost a month now. I was originally going to start a CKD, but due to all the debates about whether or not it's appropriate to have weekly refeeds, I am starting off with SKD. Once my body has become fat metabolism adapted, I will most likely begin TKD. My fitness goal is to get down to 10% bodyfat. I am currently at about 19%, give or take a little. Once I reach 10% bodyfat, I will begin bulking to build lean muscle. My ultimate goal is to live a healthier lifestyle. What that looks like to me: A solid 200 lbs. with 10% bodyfat. I am currently 206lbs., 19% bf.

    Since I am just starting today, I decided to keep things simple. I will be eating only chicken breast and eggs for today, along with some extra virgin olive oil to meet my macros. Starting tomorrow I will implement 5% carbs, veggies to be exact. I plan on implementing other foods once I get fat adapted, i.e. bacon, cheese, sausage, nuts, coconut oil, fish, steak, things like that. My money is kind of funny right now. Once things straighten out, I will mix things up a lot more.

    My daily calorie intake consists of 2,583 calories. Macro breakdown is as follows:

    Fat - 187g
    Protein - 194g
    Carbs - 32g

    I've decided to break my macro totals into 3 meals. Each meal will consist of:

    Fat - 62g
    Protein - 65g
    Carbs - 11g

    Now that I've gotten all the technical stuff out of the way, let's get to business. My breakfast today consisted of:

    Fat/Protein/Carbs

    6 eggs, whole, scrambled (30/36/0) 420 cal.
    7oz boneless, skinless chicken breast (grilled) (5/45/0) 227 cal.
    30mL/2 tbsn extra virgin olive oil (28/0/0) 240 cal.
    Total Cals. = 888

    I'll be eating the same thing for my next two meals as well. Will cut back on the chicken breast a little bit.

    So far so good! What do you all think?

    As far as pictures go, I will update my progress with a picture bi-weekly. Late on I will be posting my before pics.

    That's it for now though! Getting ready to prepare my next meal and hit the gym afterwards. Be back tomorrow!

    Today is day 2 of my ketogenic lifestyle. Things are going pretty well so far. For some reason though, when I eat my breakfast, I feel like I'm going to throw up. That's happened yesterday and today. Maybe it's because I'm eating a 1/3 of my macros in one meal. Who knows?

    Anyways, I've attached my before pics in here. I will be posting current pictures every two weeks. So stay tuned.

    To finish my day off yesterday, I ate:

    LUNCH
    4oz. chicken breast grilled
    6 eggs scrambled
    2tbsn extra virgin olive oil
    Calorie total: 790 cal.

    DINNER
    Same as lunch.
    790 cal.

    Total calories for entire day: 2,468 cal.


    Today:

    BREAKFAST
    6oz. chicken breast grilled
    6 eggs scrambled
    2tbsn extra virgin olive oil
    Total cals: 855

    To make things a little easier, I prepared all three of my meals in one sitting. My lunch and dinner will be the same as my breakfast. However, I will be implementing some carbs today, broccoli to be exact.

    As far as exercising goes, I am currently on day 39 of Kris Gethins 12 week daily video trainer. Here is the link so you all have an idea of what it is I am doing each day.

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kris...-6-day-39.html

    I think that's it for now. If I think of something else, I will let you all know.

    Edit: I looked at the pictures I uploaded and they get uploaded side ways. I'm not sure why. Any ideas?

    I don't enjoy them that much. I'm just working with what I have right now and trying to keep things simple. As I stated above in my first post, I will mix things up and give myself some more options once my financial situation is straightened out. Until then, I have to deal with chicken breast and eggs. Hopefully I can change that soon.

    Thanks man! I need all the motivation I can get. Kris Gethin's program is amazing! This is my second try at it. The first time I quit around 9th week because of a calf injury. I couldn't even walk, had to get crutches. Worked them babies out too hard lol I love the intensity of it though. You should give it another go someday.

    Just finished my last meal of the day. Feeling great! Plan on using the ketostix I picked up today when I wake up tomorrow morning. I'll follow the advice I was given and make sure I am dehydrated before I try testing. Since tomorrow is my third day, I should be entering ketosis real soon. Wish me luck.

    On another note, something I forgot to mention is that I take a post workout protein shake. ON Gold Standard to be exact. That shouldn't affect me at all since I'm taking it immediately after my workout correct?

    It's only 3 carbs in a scoop. It's fine.

    Sounds good! According to Man2k's calc., I'm supposed to be taking in 32g of carbs a day. What are some good carbs to get those in? I'm thinking 32g is too much though? I ate about 215g of broccoli with my dinner. Didn't really give me any carbs. Only about 4g I think. Any ideas?

    Today I picked up some pork rinds and ate about 1oz. They were delish!

    Yeah, they are. If you crush them up, it makes a great breading for fried chicken or fish

    32 net carbs is fine. A litttle more will still work, a lot less is fine. It's just a general guideline. No need to try and get things exact.

    Yeah, 215g/broc should be about 4 net carbs. Canned spinach is an easy/ good/nutritious and fairly cheap one to use. Cauliflower with cheese is a fav. And I love homemade cole slaw (cabbage is some nutrient rich stuff). Just make sure you're getting some micronutrients in there. Use a good multivitamin if they're lacking.

    I used to use Johnsonville Brats, and Nathan's Hot Dogs a lot. They've got a few carbs, but manageable, and plenty high in fat plus some decent protein. Once you're in keto for a while, you could try making some low-carb chili for them. I used to do that all the time, put them on a low carb tortilla whith chili & cheese. "Diet" food is awesome

    Half the trick about keto is finding a variety of stuff you like. It's always helped me to cook big batches of stuff on Sunday, and just reheat the leftovers all week.

    I will definitely try that! sounds really good.

    Okay cool. That's a relief. Yesterday I ate a little over my cal intake by about 200 cals. I'm not worried though because I know it's good to shock the body. Definitely gonna get some canned spinach along with some cauliflower. What kind of cheese do you use for the cauliflower? As far as micronutrients go, I am taking ON's Opti-Men multivitamin. That should be okay right?

    What are Johnsonville Brats? I'll look for some of Nathan's Hot Dogs. You used to put the hot dogs on a low car tortilla with chili and cheese? SOunds really good. When you get a chance, could you send me some info on a low carb chili recipe? I'd really appreciate it.

    I plan on starting to precook my food as you mentioned. That's what I did when I followed Kris Gethin's nutrition plan my first go at his program. It helps a lot because all I have to do is heat it up. Something I figured out today is that chicken breast tends to weigh a lot more when it's frozen. For that very reason I'm thawing out enough cb for the following day. Kinda weird but I guess I should have known that lol

    Good news! I tested for ketones this morning. It said I had somewhere between small and moderate amounts of ketones in my body. That's exciting to me! Ready to finish day 3 off. I'll most likely update later on tonight. Stay tuned.

    Yeah, it's fine. When you run out, you might look to upgrading a little. Orange Triad is a universal favorite, and really cost efficient low dosed.


    What are Johnsonville Brats? I'll look for some of Nathan's Hot Dogs. You used to put the hot dogs on a low car tortilla with chili and cheese? SOunds really good. When you get a chance, could you send me some info on a low carb chili recipe? I'd really appreciate it.
    Find 'em at Wal-mart right next to each other. J-ville has some great brats, polish saus, and andouille (the New Orleans style). Love 'em all.

    The chili and low carb tortillas might be pushing the carbs up a bit for you at first, so I'd give it a couple weeks before trying it, but...

    Chili Dogs
    This is green bean chili, which is great, but it's also good with "Eden" brand black soy beans which are extremely low carb.
    Note - It must be Eden brand black SOY beans. Their regular black beans are not low carb. Probably have to go to a health food store for them, and they are not cheap.
    I like to just slop it over a couple of Johnsonville brats and top with jalepeno slices and shredded cheese. You can also wrap in, or serve on top of "Mission" brand "carb control tortillas (find 'em at Wal-mart).


    2lb ground beef - brown, drain

    Add:
    3 cans french cut green beans - drained (or use the Eden Black Soy Beans)
    2x 10 oz cans diced tomatoes w/green chiles - drained
    28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    2x 13 oz cans mushroom pieces & stems
    A little chili powder

    Some bits of celery and/or onion is nice (powder does ok too)

    Counts in 1 ounce (approx):
    Calories = 31
    Protein = 1.8
    Net carbs = 0.7


    I tested for ketones this morning. It said I had somewhere between small and moderate amounts of ketones in my body. That's exciting to me!
    Excellent. Any positive reading at all means you're in and now burning ketones as your primary fuel. Congrats.

    Do you melt the cheese at all to create like a sauce? I wonder if that would work. Or do you just sprinkle it on top? Gonna pick some up. Need to eat some more creative meals. Getting tired of eggs and chicken breast already.

    I'll order some of those probably today or tomorrow.

    Today was a good day, besides the migraine I got during my workout and the lack of energy. Today is the second day I got a migraine. They go away after a short while.

    Breakfast
    6 eggs scrambled
    6oz. chicken breast grilled
    110g broccoli
    2tbsn evoo
    Total cals. - 896

    Lunch
    6 eggs scrambled
    6oz. chicken breast grilled
    52g broccoli
    2tbsn evoo
    Total cals. - 875

    Dinner
    6 eggs scrambled
    6oz. chicken breast grilled
    2tbsn evoo
    Total cals. - 896

    Post workout - ON Gold Standard

    Going grocery shopping tomorrow. Gonna pick up some spinach, shredded sharp cheddar, Johnsonville brats, cauliflower, bacon, more eggs, and probably a couple other things. A couple bags of pork rinds for sure! Quick question. My mom picked up a bag of mixed veggies today. She said it's mixed with broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Are carrots okay on keto? I'm guessing they are but I want to make sure.

    Monday morning I will be weighing myself. I will also be measuring bf% again. After that, I will weigh myself and take bodyfat measurements every other week. That way I can surprise myself and stay motivated. Can't wait to see the results I achieve.

    I need all the help and feedback I can get. Looking forward to many followers on my log! (: Stay tuned!!!

    You didn't quit caffeine (sodas) at the same time you started keto, did you?

    Carrots are actually a little higher carb than most veggies. Keto folk usually shy away from carrots and peas. But.... just check the label and see what the net carb count is. You probably won't have a problem fitting them into your macros.

    No sir. I stopped drinking caffeine awhile back because I knew I was going to be dieting. Since I was working out and not dieting, I felt like I was wasting my time in the gym. I knew I wasn't but I also knew that my results would be a lot better if i had a nutrition plan in place. With that being said, I decided to cut caffeine out. It was the least I could do.

    As far as the carrots go, I can just pick them out. I'll check the net carbs first though.

    Today was pretty mellow. No gym. It was a rest day for me. Hitting back and biceps tomorrow.

    Breakfast
    The usual:
    6oz. chicken breast
    6 eggs scrambled
    2tbsn evoo

    Lunch
    Same as breakfast

    Dinner
    Same as breakfast

    Snacks
    Pork Rinds
    Popcorn
    2 starburst

    About the popcorn and starburst. I went to the movies to see Sky Fall. Had some popcorn and ate 2 pieces of starburst candy. I figured it couldn't do any harm since I had no carbs at all today. Hopefully it didn't mess things up. What do you guys think?

    Tomorrow, I will be mixing things up. Went shopping and have lots of goodies. Can't wait! Still need to pick up some sharp cheddar cheese since they didn't have any at the grocery store I went to. Looking forward to tomorrow. It seems very promising.

    On Monday morning I will be weighing in. I will also take bodyfat measurements. Stay tuned everybody! Have a goodnight!

    Today was EPIC! I had back and biceps and suffered big time! My whole workout I felt weak. When I had to do concentration curls, I had to curl a 15lb. dumbbell just to complete my sets. Besides those, I suffered on everything else as well, except reverse grip hammer pulldowns. Here's what my workout looked like today: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kris...-6-day-42.html

    Other than my workout, I mixed things up a whole bunch today. It was not the usual, except for breakfast. That was because I had church at 10am and didn't have much time to switch things up. Here's today's breakdown.

    Breakfast
    6oz. chicken breast grilled
    6 whole eggs scrambled
    1 cup of veggies
    2tbsn evoo
    Total Cals - 880

    Lunch
    3 whole eggs scrambled
    2 brats fried
    2 slices bacon fried
    1 cup veggies
    Total cals. - 975

    Dinner
    1 whole egg scrambled
    1 slice bacon fried
    Total cals. - 180

    Snacks
    2oz. fried pork rinds
    3/4 cup ranch sunflower seeds
    Total cals. - 500

    Today's total - 2,535 cals.

    During lunch I fried my brats and cut them up into small pieces. Mixed it with my eggs and had bacon on the side. Best meal I've had so far. Can't wait to try some of the recipes that are listed on this site. I'm loving keto! I can definitely say that it beats my last diet. I was eating 6oz of chicken breast, tilapia, or eye of round steak along with a 1/2 cup of brown rice and some broccoli, 8 times a day. It was crazy! It drove me nuts! Anyways, enough of my rant.

    Tomorrow is Monday, which means I'll be weighing in. I'll also be testing bodyfat percentage. Stay tuned, and please give me any feedback that you might have! Thanks!

    Thanks bro! Today is Day 6 of Keto for me. Eating breakfast right now. 3 eggs, 1 brat, 2 bacon. Made an omelette today. Picked up some sharp cheddar cheese yesterday. Threw some on top and nuked it for 45sec. Indeed, very delish!

    You keep giving me ideas! That's very generous of you. I took a look in the keto recipes section and found some killer brownies. Gonna take a try at those soon to satisfy my sweet tooth

    Pics of my omelette (for some reason the first pic I took came out blurry) :

    I have a few questions. As I read through some of the threads, people talk about cycling calories. Would you guys recommend I do the same? I'm curious to hear some of your responses. Another question I have is, how will I know when I'm fat adapted? I'm guessing it's pretty self-explanatory (energy levels, strength back, etc.), but just wondering if that's all I need to look for to know I'm fat adapted. I know I had a couple more questions but can't think of them right now. I will update later or tomorrow when I think of them. Going to the Black Ops 2 midnight release for my little brothers in a bit. First I need to fix my dinner though. Stay tuned people!

    I've never bothered with any kind of calorie cycling/pyramiding schemes. Not saying they aren't valid, I haven't looked into it and so have no opinion, other than keeping things pretty constant (and simple) works for me personally.

    Most people recommend at least 2 weeks for adaptation before trying tkd or ckd re-feeds.

    How is your energy level "outside the gym". I look to that as a much more important indicator of "fat adaptation" than energy "during a workout". If your energy is fine outside the gym, give it one more workout cycle and then give some pre-workout carbs a try. Keep that workout log accurate so you can see how things are affected.

    Hang in there, man. Once you get through these early stages, everything gets a lot better and a lot easier.

    Okay cool. I'll stick to what I'm doing then.

    Energy levels have been fluctuating. Today was okay. The last two days were hard for me because I had very little energy. All I wanted to do was sleep. It is only day 7 though, so I'll keep an eye on my energy levels outside of the gym.

    I was a little disappointed when I weighed in this morning. The night before I started keto, I stopped eating after 6pm. The following morning (day 1 of keto), I remember weighing in at 203lbs. I know I'm not mistaken. I weighed in a couple times after that during the day, as well as the following day (2nd day I keto), and of course my weight was fluctuating from about 204-207lbs. I guess I just expected to be lower than 203 when I weighed in this morning. No worries though. I'm just ranting, something I tend to do too often. Lol

    Let's see how week 2 goes! Hoping things get better.
