If you’re collaborating within the year-end Winter Low Carb Challenge right here is this week’s weigh-in thread within the group. You can weigh in there, or depart a remark right here on this submit together with your complete variety of kilos misplaced since we began on October 29th.
I sit up for listening to your outcomes to date! 🙂
While this will appear to be an odd “food diary” or instance to you, there’s a function behind it. 😉
The first purpose I haven’t accomplished any cooking this week is as a result of I’ve been nonstop-whirlwind-busy!
But even with out cooking in any respect, aside from whipping up eggs actual fast, I’ve managed to stay to tremendous easy keto-approved meals and meals for 4 straight days.
That’s as a result of I’m doing a “clean testing series” on quite a lot of “keto foods” or meals that individuals are not sure are TRULY keto-friendly or not.
In order to try this I needed to get my physique again in ketosis and my blood ketone and glucose ranges stabilized after the tough Domino’s wings threw me out of ketosis. 😛
I like for my ketone levels to be SOLID for a minimum of 72 hours earlier than one other check, after which I eat tremendous clear (already ketone-tested meals ONLY) for an additional 72 hours after testing a food – so we get “clean” (untainted) outcomes.
I’ve an entire record of meals I can’t wait to check! From a Bunless Bic Mac to a few products in the November Keto Krate that individuals are questioning.
Stay tuned for the outcomes! 😉
In the meantime, right here’s what I’ve been consuming for the final 4 days – and extra importantly: my final 4 MyFitnessPal food logs, so you possibly can see how I log my meals and the way simply the keto macros work out…
We’ll begin again at Sunday, the primary full day I used to be again in ketosis after these soiled wings! lol… I selected to go for an honest hike that day and do some difficult climbs too, as exercise also improves your ketone production.
My Low Carb Meals on Sunday
I took my first time without work in fairly awhile, however I nonetheless had stuff to take care of actual fast earlier than I might get out & off the grid for the day, so I had some packaged keto cookies for breakfast actual fast with my espresso whereas I wrapped issues up.
Then on my method out of city I ended at Burger King and ordered “2 double cheeseburgers plain, no bun please, so just meat & cheese.”
This comes out to 2 internet carbs and underneath $4, and whereas it’s not my favourite low carb quick food – it’s low cost and tremendous low carb. 😉
I ate these plain as a result of: “no dripping & driving” 🙂 lol.
I headed straight up the mountain for Fall Creek Falls to benefit from the SUNSHINE which lastly got here out for the primary time in over every week!!
The cookies I had for breakfast have been Peanut Butter NUI Keto Cookies.
This one pictured is their Chocolate Chip cookie, however I’ve been consuming these as a fast snack or to get me by lengthy hours between meals as a result of I’ve already examined them – they don’t spike glucose or tank ketone ranges.
Quite the other: my ketone ranges have been larger than regular these days!
I had an AMAZING hike! 🙂
I used to be planning to go to Applebee’s for a pleasant massive dinner of salmon & inexperienced veggies after my hike… however I used to be exhausted. 😛
I ended up consuming a Macadamia Coconut Fat Bomb packet within the automotive on the best way residence… and I used to be in mattress by 8pm, lol.

My hike was a GREAT exercise. I made a decision to go to the bottom of Fall Creek Falls this time as an alternative of the highest…
I ended up climbing down the steep, slippery bluff to play downstream – which meant a variety of climbing over large rocks and fallen timber, all tremendous slick.
That required utilizing a variety of muscle mass and physique weight leverage for tough climbing, particularly again up the slippery bluff over giant boulders!
A greater exercise than I’ve ever gotten at a fitness center!
Plus WAY extra enjoyable. 😉
Here’s how my MyFitnessPal diary seemed and the way my macros labored out for the day:
My Low Carb Meals on Monday
Breakfast was my normal tacky eggs! 🙂
I used to be operating errands later within the day and picked up a fast low carb meal at McDonald’s. Actually sufficient for 2 meals. 😉
I ordered it like this: “4 sausage patties and 4 round fried eggs, please.” 🚗
That comes to five.6 carbs in line with the nutrition calculator on their web site. Their cheese is 2 carbs per slice so I skip it, simply FYI…
They cost totally different for that at each location – and each time even. Sometimes it’s cheaper to order a la carte, typically the offers on their cellular app are cheaper.
At MY McDonald’s this week breakfast sandwiches have been on particular 2-for-$4. I ordered a la carte first tho: “4 sausage patties and 4 round fried eggs, please.”
If it had been greater than $eight, I might have stated, “In that case I’ll take two of the 2 for $4 sausage egg mcmuffins, all four with no bread and no cheese, please.”
But at this time it was solely $7.92 -lol. 🤷♀️
Ohhhh… and for dinner! ❤
I ought to point out btw that this was a 24 hour day for me. I fell asleep early Monday night time so I used to be up at 2am on Tuesday – and up till 2am that night time. Which is why there are FOUR meals. 😉
This is a bowl filled with scrumptious: Philadelphia cream cheese with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Legendary Foods almond butter (I prefer it refrigerated) with 60 grams of pecans all topped with Macadamia Coconut nut butter. 😍
Here is my MyFitnessPal diary for Monday:
My Low Carb Meals on Tuesday
Tuesday was a MUCH shorter day…
I had my tacky eggs once more for breakfast, and that very same bowl of yumminess once more for dinner! I’m consuming loads of the identical meals time and again as a result of they’re recognized/examined meals and I’m getting myself prepared for an additional spherical of “keto food testing.” 😉
Here is my MyFitnessPal diary for Tuesday:
My Low Carb Meals on Wednesday
Um… eggs… once more. 🙂
I had a fast lunch at my desk.
A enjoyable snack plate truly!
It’s 45 grams of uncooked pecan halves, 1.16 ounces of cheddar sliced off the block, 4 ounces of Oscar Mayer rotisserie hen slices and 18 grams of blueberries. 😍
And YES, these are EXACT measurements. 🙂
I’m a stickler for measuring & monitoring! I exploit this kitchen scale, it’s small and handy and correct – and cheap!
I used to be caught at my desk at dinnertime for a digital assembly (not video, thank goodness -lol) so I simply grabbed some Peanut Butter NUI Cookies and a Fat Bomb Packet and referred to as these dinner.
Again, as a result of I’m sticking to ONLY recognized/ketone-tested meals proper now in preparation for my subsequent massive food check. And each of those keto merchandise check GREAT on blood glucose & ketone ranges. 😉
Here is my MyFitnessPal diary for Wednesday:
I bumped into probably the most fascinating snake on my hike the opposite day…
Interesting first as a result of it was odd to see it out in December, particularly within the chilly spray from the close by waterfall.
But fascinating additionally as a result of it has the precise markings of a innocent garter snake… however the head is formed like a viper. A garter snake sometimes has a slender head, the identical measurement or much more slender than it’s physique.
This one had a triangular formed head like a toxic snake, even earlier than I startled it (lol). See this video:
I’m nonetheless stumped on that one!
Earlier this week I ran throughout this notice I acquired handed final yr whereas consuming takeout throughout a enterprise convention. 😊
That made for an fascinating dialog! LOL… ❣
