Irishgirl57's Journal, 02 February 2013

It seems that switching to the Ketogenic Diet is working for me after after stalling and gaining on Atkins. It's the same principle, but upping fat percentage to at least 70 percent or more, reducing protein to 20 percent or under and keeping carbs really low (under 20 g) per day. It's really not hard, and I have started losing again. Aiming to get fat up to 80 percent is a bit challenging, while keeping protein lower.

Diet Calendar Entries for 02 February 2013:
1200 kcal Fat: 98.20g | Prot: 68.09g | Carb: 15.21g.   Breakfast: Egg, Butter, Bacon, Coffee, Organic Heavy Whipping Cream. Lunch: Chicken soup. Dinner: Porterhouse, Butter, Blue cheese dressing, Tomatoes , Iceberg, Mushrooms . Snacks/Other: Chocolate Fat Treat. more...
2885 kcal Activities & Exercise: Sleeping - 8 hours, Resting - 15 hours and 30 minutes, Walking (moderate) - 3/mph - 30 minutes. more...


That's interesting. Is this diet published somewhere?

There is a forum on Fatsecret too. Also, Drs.. Stephen Phinney and Jeffrey Volek have written books on it and Dr. Peter Attia has a blog. On his web page he lists other blogs and sites on nutritional Ketosis. It seems to be working for now! But I ate too much protein today so had to add more fat to get my macros right.
