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:
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!
