What I Ate Today (9.23.2016)

A Day Of Food on the Ketogenic Diet

Below is a video of a somewhat typical day of food for me. It was essentially coffee until mid-afternoon when I made a bunless cheesburger and a half dozen shrimp for dinner. The macros (fat/protein/carbs) as well as calories are below as well. This video is too long and going forward I'll make it more of a recap unless there's some recipe or item I think might be helpful to others.

[Please give me feedback. Between trying to learn the technology, editing and whatnot I'm still climbing up that learning curve. I wish to make helpful and engaging content that's as polished as I can muster. Any suggestions will be welcomed.]

This includes a couple of gin & tonics (diet tonic, of course) I had. For more details......

I hope this proves useful. Thanks for reading!


What Do I Eat In A Day? (I Need Your Suggestions)

What To Eat On the Ketogenic Diet

Below is a video from my YouTube Channel. It references this blog so it may seem like a circular formula in Excel. But I need some suggestions on how to shareis anyone my daily food. I've been asked about it several times so figured I'd share. Just don't know the best way to do that. Of course, what I eat isn't exactly 'stop the presses' information. But some inquiring minds want to know.....


New Weight Loss and An Added Surprise!

It's a rainy Monday here, usually a prescription for being a bit down. But not me. Not today. Firstly, we really need the rain around here. My poor garden has gone crispy! But also, I feel I've regained a level of control over myself that seemed to have been slipping of late.

Nothing dramatic. Just finding it more challenging than usual to eat only when hungry. As I've written before, that has been the bigger issue for me as I've lost weight on the ketogenic (low carb/high fat) diet. Avoiding carbs is now routine for me. But mindless eating. Grrrrrr. It can still happen.

Then Lovely Mate and I had a beach weekend with family and friends. My weight loss slow down took a different turn altogether. I put on about 5 pounds. That's the largest uptick I've had since starting the protocol. I wasn't freaked out by the gain, knowing it would correct. And because I knew the reason. I ate when I didn't need to. When I wasn't hungry. I remained in ketosis (read here for a quick reminder of what that is) and ate only 'allowed' foods. (see here for the 2 page list). But we had fun hanging out with everyone. I just didn't like feeling weighed down. And not by the pounds so much as the idea that I had been getting sloppy about one of the tenets of the program: "Eat only when hungry"

Fasting To Break A "Stall"

The "stall" in my case was more of a mental one. I have enjoyed being in control of my eating for the last couple of years since starting the diet. I wanted to get in front of that control getting away from me. So I decided to fast or a day. In the video below I share how that went, and an added surprise I experienced.
