  • There is a user script that will allow you to see net carbs on MFP. It and instructions are at this link : https://github.com/Surye/mfp-keto-userscript As far as getting more fiber, your best options are either high fiber vegetables or supplementing with Psyllium husk. The daily recommendations are fairly modest.
  • Water intoxication is all but unheard of except in cases of forced hydration. The problem isn't the fluid intake, its the resulting imbalance of electrolytes, that cause an issue. Symptoms are similar to those for heat injuries, which you have not mentioned being symptomatic. If your concerned, then you can try replacing…
  • “If you find me offensive. Then I suggest you quit finding me.”
  • Both numbers are recommended by various posters in different threads. As stated above, the 1g/lb is lean, where the 1g/kg is usually considered total. Also, you have to take into account purpose. the 1g/kg is minimal intake, the 1g/lb is high intake when trying to maintain muscle while in a deficit, or when trying to build…
  • I read this as referring to Atkins, Smart Ones, etc you get from the supermarket, and more of an indictment of eating a lot of processed foods. Even the ones claiming to be high protein, cap out at ~ 20g a serving .... they tend to be carb heavy, cause its cheaper to manufacture. Barely sufficient if youre eating only the…
  • TDEE calc with your metrics for a sed 30 yr old is ~ 1676. This will go up or down if you are younger / older. Eating 1900 puts you ~ 225 surplus, before any other factors are considered. At the low end of your breastfeeding estimate, after factoring in other inaccuracies, youre more likely to be at a sustain level. At the…
  • This. Also, you should be eating back at least some reasonable % of your additional expenditure from exercise. Don't know what your nutrition plan looks like, but shifting to less carbs and more protein/fat, as well as increasing fiber intake, usually increases satiety.
  • Start now, strength training is muscle sparing while at a deficit. Find a good beginner program that is progressive loading ... recommendations all over this site ( I use Stronglifts 5x5 ).
  • After you get the recommended minimums for proper metabolism/nutrition, the rest is all subjective and open to personal interpretation, sans a medical condition. Eat at a deficit ( CICO ) and you will lose weight.
  • Realistically, the water intake measure should be renamed as fluid intake, which is what you really want to track, for the sake of hydration. Having said that, you can include the volume of any/all 0 cal drinks, when tracking "water" on in the diary.
  • In trying to improve/maintain my hydration, I have a 64 oz bottle at work I refill every morning. I try to finish it ( to get my minimum in ) by the end of the day. Some days, it needs a refill; other days, I realize in the afternoon I'm behind, and try to finish as much as I can before heading out. I consume quite a bit…
  • Of ones that I can actually measure accurately, I eat anywhere from 85-100% back. For activities where I would have to estimate, I don't record them or eat any back.
  • All I see in the pictures is extra body weight and low lean muscle mass. Its not abnormal to carry extra body weight predominantly in the lower torso ... its actually pretty common. This "pot belly" or apple shape is due primarily to a build up of visceral fat. Mid 20's ( guestimate since not provided ) male @ 5'10"…
  • So true ... #1 exercise for getting lean/cut - body weight horizontal triceps extensions
  • This. You'll only succeed long term via the motivation that comes from within.
  • If I end up buying something and not liking it, 99% of the time I finish it, then not buy it in the future ... I hate to waste food. That 1% I do throw out has to be completely inedible or toxic, not just a non preferential experience.
  • Along with good dairy suggestions above, you have seed and nut options that are high protein, such as peanut butter or chia seeds. You could also try adding Edemame or another higher protein vegetable source like chickpeas. YMMV with how much protein you can get into a smoothie and still meet your cals or other macro…
  • Eat them on a semi regular basis. Love them with Hispanic dishes as a side or condiment ( quac ). Very popular with the LCHF / Keto crowd, because it has a macro profile that fits those plans nicely. They are one of the lowest net carb fruits available. Good source for B and K vitamins, as well as Potassium and fiber.…
  • For hydration purposes, your fluid intake doesn't specifically have to be water. Fluid from other sources counts, such as fruits/fruit juices, soups, milk, etc. And just because you modify it to be more palatable, doesn't make it less hydrating ( such as a water additive ). You should count it ( if you track it ) ... I do.…
  • I had done a bunch of internet research, before posting this question. I had seen that 1st article. Some of that research is what lead me to believe it was nutritionally possible to replace fruits with vegetable alternatives, for the purposes of core vitamin consumption. None of what I was able to find shed any light on…
  • I calculated calories for maintenance at my goal weight and sed., then set it manually. It allows for a higher deficit now, when I'm heavier, and gradually decreases as I get closer to my goal. Added benefit is that I wont have to change my routine/habits when I reach my goal. I log and eat back 100% of exercise calories…
  • As said above, completely normal, and good advice. You can expect diminished capacity/results, til you fully transition.
  • When set properly for what you are trying to accomplish, you should: 1) Consider calories as a cap. 2) Consider protein as a floor. 3) Get at least 30g of fat for hormone production/regulation. 4) Be more concerned with averages ( weekly / monthly ) than individual days. 5) Realize these are all estimations and…

  • If hes trying to lean bulk, he should be eating high protein, and with a caloric surplus of 6-12% of his TDEE. ( you said hes working out, trying to gain weight, and cut ) If hes trying to do a traditional bulk, he can eat at a higher surplus, but should expect to not gain additional definition, as he will gain both muscle…
  • When bulk/batch cooking, I tend to use whole containers, so I use the measurements on the label when entering a recipe ( ie 2 lb chicken thigh, 1 lb dry beans, etc ). Once I have the whole recipe entered, I adjust the number of servings to match my calorie/macro goals for the item. I then weight after cooking and…
  • I usually eat it plain, as a between meal snack or protein boost after the gym. It can be used in a lot of ways, including as a replacement for other soft cheeses, sour cream, yogurt. Can be used to make dips and creamy sauces. I happen to like it on potatoes, either in baked or mixed with mashed.
  • Up to 2 lbs a week would be considered safe with that much extra to use, without medical supervision. As you get closer to healthy/ideal weight, most will recommend you lower your weekly loss rate. I don't calculate based on a desired loss rate. I setup MFP for maintenance at my goal weight, including all my macros. This…
  • This. If you buy fattier cuts and tend to strain/drain the juices, cooked is probably more accurate. Leaner cuts, or using the fat/other juices with the protein, I prefer to weigh and log raw.
