  • Usually I'm not concerned with the level of my proteins. When it comes to macros, carbs are the only restriction number, while fats and proteins are goals. So it's ok to surpass your daily protein allowance. If you find it a problem consistently, add more fats to your cooking. Use more butter or olive oil, or just eat a…
  • I will allow BodyBuilding.com do the explaining: Most Ketogenic proponents, myself included, recommend a 65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carb macro breakdown. At this level, you cannot really reach the level of protein needed for muscle tissue to be used as energy. Also this doesn't take into consideration that the person would…
  • I'm assuming he's drinking that many Monsters for energy, energy he needs because of his high carb diet. I would suggest replacing Monster with bulletproof coffee and pre-workout . I drink at least two cups of BPC and two servings of PW Monday-Friday. Mostly for the flavor and caffeine addiction. It's a great replacement…
  • Well today I learned something. Point well proved!
  • Even though I eat strict Ketogenics, I still have to have my veggies. Granted, all of the veggies I do eat are low-carb, but I still think to have a greater appreciation for health and flavors of life, eating veggies is an important staple. And fiber is really good for your digestive system. If you don't eat veggies, why…
  • Here are two resources that I usually give to other guys who are interested in Ketogenics: Ketogains Website + Ketogains Reddit and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance It's important for us men to never associate a style of eating with the term "diet", it sounds feminine. Might sound stupid to think that…
  • I think it's a great way to start the day. Gives your body energy to start working through. Usually I just do coffee and heavy whipping cream, but sometimes I might be too hungry to wait for lunch like I usually do and eat an avocado. Avocados are one of the most important Keto snacks that are easily overlooked, I know I…
  • Honestly I don't like meal prepping. I don't like eating the same thing over and over, I don't like food to be prepared days out and degenerate in quality and taste, and I'm not a fan of using a microwave. So I cook, everyday, for an hour, with fresh meats and fresh ingredients. I love cooking, it's my second favorite…
  • Steak, try to eat a 1.5lb steak and not be stuffed. And it has zero carbs. #KetoWin
  • Bread has always been my weak point too. Most of my life, bread came as a requirement with every meal. Then one day I woke up and told myself I want to live the Keto life. And just like that, I forgot entirely that bread existed. I'm against attempting to make carbohydrate recreations, like using some sort of low-carb…
  • The proper term is Net Carbs. It's been debated ad nauseam the exact carb count needed to stay under for Keto-adapatation to occur. But if you're under 50g of Net Carbs, you're gonna be alright. The other day I ate this delicious veal with seasoning and the carbs was ridiculous for me at 20g, which is usually what I allow…
  • I mean you're kind of right @clobern80 Carbs are super delicious
  • Yes and yes. Go to the gym, you will find your zen there, you will find the iron resolves your mental issues and hang ups. As far as clothing, I hate that women are allowed to wear yoga pants and sports bras. It's unreasonable to expect me to focus on working out when I have a girl in skin tight pink yoga pants and a…
  • Add me and let's keep motivated for change!
  • Type motivation into YouTube, that always really gets me in gear on those days that I'm feeling the weight of iron bearing down my back to be too heavy.
  • * Carbohydrates * Sugar in any form * Processed meats
  • Add me, especially if you're into heavy iron and low-carbs!
  • @LucyMcd1 I think I might be able to guess why you fell off the wagon in the first place... there was probably a Twinkie laying on the ground. Listen, eating junk food feels great, it's supposed to. It's chemically designed to hit all of the built in trigger systems for deep seated survival instincts. Eating it even once…
  • I absolutely recommend a scale, but a bit more advanced one with a body fat measurement: This is the one I have Why a scale?: Numbers If you want to lose weight in a healthy style, nothing is more important psychologically as numbers. Tracking and staying within caloric range, watching the weight as well as the body fat %…
  • It's ok if you don't understand how carbohydrates affect the body, I say just get educated about it @TeaBea "(like 2 low carb days a week for the rest of your life)" - About as hysterically vague and unsustainable as possible. I suggest advice based in science and anecdotal success, not in assumptions or self-created…
  • Hey add me if you'd like inspiration and motivation to stick to a Ketogenic diet! #carbsaretheenemy
  • I think I might know where you went wrong.... Keep your head up! Create a system, develop a new lifestyle, and stick to it. Become responsible to yourself and your actions. Add me as a friend if you interested in keeping in touch.
  • You cannot achieve fat burning Ketosis eating only low-carb 2 days a week, more importantly you also cannot become fat-adapted eating like that. Fat adaptation is where your body pulls fat as its main energy source instead of carbohydrates. It is not a good idea to give advice on a eating lifestyle you don't know too much…
  • You're under clinical supervision to lose weight and you think you don't eat much? Pretty much reminds me of Secret Eaters. If you want advice, make your diary open so we can all scrutinize your food choices.
  • Hey you're fat, you probably know what to eat, you're just eating too much of it right now.... :| Low carb is a great lifestyle option for the nutritionally minded @JemmaLeather ! The real secret is bacon and buttermilk ranch, adding that to any other mix of protein and low-carb veggies equate to delicious dinners all…
  • Sugar in high quantities is highly toxic. Source If you are truly concerned about sugar consumption, as you should be, take a look at the Ketogenics diet. It's a great way to eat for health. I have kept my sugar under 20g a day the entire time I've been on Keto.
  • I needed a good laugh
  • When I think healthy weight loss, I think wine and popcorn...
  • I'm from the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, add me if you're interested in Ketogenics and healthy living!
  • Add me if you're interested in seeing what a low-carb Ketogenic diet looks like!
