Hiya, I'm 47 and starting this challenge today. I'm cooking some ground beef and ground pork together, with salt, pepper and garlic powder. When I take out a serving to eat, I add 2 Tbsp full-fat cream cheese (1g carbs) and some Frank's Red Hot sauce (0 carbs). If I'm really hungry or bored of eating the same thing, I put a couple poached eggs on top. So that's today taken care of! What are you going to eat?

Hi, I am 52 and following the Atkins diet - pretty much for life as I have an autoimmune condition that makes my body behave as if I were allergic to most carbs. If I can help in any way, let me know!

Thanks, Luluweezie- 1g carb in 2TBS cream cheese is perfect for me. I eat a lot of eggs. So this would be easy for me. Don't know about sauces, I try and stay away, most of them are loaded with nasties.

ElleAye yes, I will see what you eat to get ideas.
My diet would consist of mainly fat and protein.
I just noticed milk contains so much carb. Going to stock up on fresh cream.

Be careful how much heavy cream you take in each day. Too much fat can stall your progress. To limit carbs I really like Coconut milk vs Cow's milk. I use it to make protein shakes. I use regular 1% cow's milk for homemade Greek Yogurt though.

I need to go low carb, It's the only plan that works for me. I lose my sweet tooth after a week, and it get's easier. I find that once I have a bite of chocolate or ice cream, I can't stop, and give up "until tomorrow" It seems to me to be "all or nothing" when watching my diet.

I'm 36 years old, male, Asian, 5'10", and was once 280 lbs.

Don't worry. This is my second year doing the keto diet and it works every time. Since January 1st this year I've already lost 41 pounds. The first time I did it, I lost 71 pounds. Most of the fat in my diet comes from grassfed butter and extra virgin coconut oil.

I hate the taste of olive oil, so no olive oil for me. I take fish oil daily. The first time I did the keto diet, I did the <50g carbs, but this year, I'm going completely 0 carb. Like the only carbs I'm eating are from meat, like the liver, other than that, absolutely no carbs to make sure I go completely into full ketosis. But ya, you're right, once you take a bite of something sweet, you'll tickle that part of your brain that's addicted to sweets and start making excuses. Contrary to popular belief, there's no cheat day on the keto diet.

That's why the keto diet is so specific when it comes to carb consumption. The purpose is to convert your body to burning primarily fat as fuel, not just during workouts, but 24/7. Eat too much carbs and you go right back into fat-making mode and have to start all over again.

There's no such thing as too much fat, since fat can't be turned back into bodyfat because ketones lack missing molecules to become whole fat molecules, instead excess ketones are discarded via urine or feces.

Your body won't store dietary fat as bodyfat. The first time I lost 71 lbs, I ate in excess of 4,500 calories a day. My macros were specifically 80/15/5 - fat/protein/carbs.

How in the world do you eat absolutely 0 carbs? What do you eat?

Not absolute 0 carbs, I get some carbs from internal organs I eat like liver, because that's where glycogen is contained. I sometimes eat steamed veggies, but that's basically it. I don't eat fruit, I don't eat seeds. I drink only water (distilled water). I don't even drink tea or coffee. I'm not worried about eating really low carbs, like 0-10g from natural meat, because that's a given, I just don't touch anything that's in powdered form, whether it be whey protein or wheat flour.

An example today would be me cooking a big bass and bathe it in 6 tablespoons of kerrygold grassfed butter. That by itself is 1,000 calories. Later on, I plan on eating 1 pound of 27% fat ground beef, which in and of itself is 1,100 calories + cooking it in 3 tablespoons of butter, which is another 300 calories. All-in-all, that's 2,400 calories.

It's easy to eat a lot of calories on the keto diet. Carbs are obsolete. Unless you're an athlete, you don't need to eat that much carbs anyways. Too much glucose in the blood stream is toxic, that's why insulin comes in and cleans it up and put them in their respective places like good little janitors.

Also, you can eat 0, or near 0 carbs and survive just fine. Your body actually can create its own glucose from amino acids and fat in the liver via the process of gluconeogenesis. Biochemistry, science is awesome. Very Happy

I was just curious...I don't eat many carbs either but I do eat veggies. So I was just wondering if you're 'meat only' or what. Thanks for responding!

Well, I've never gone completely meatatarian, but there's a first time for everything. A long time ago I first delved into Paleo, then I discovered Nutritional Ketosis and how it treats and may even reverse all kinds of chronic diseases like epilepsy and insulin resistance to name a couple.

I used to have frequent painful gout attacks every month, but since eating a keto diet, gout has vanished into thin air! I've been gout free for over 2 years since I started eating keto. I normally don't consume dairy products due to lactose and casein protein, which is hard on the human digestive system, but I'll make an exception for grassfed Kerrygold Irish butter.

I don't eat cheese, yogurt, or any dairy constituent that's high in casein protein. I stay away from food that tastes sweet and contains fructose, this includes fruit, the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde food that contains 50% good and 50% bad sugars. I don't eat rice, wheat, or nuts. I normally don't eat legumes, but I'll make an exception for peanuts (which are technically beans).

Even then, I gotta watch how much I eat, because the carbs add up. 7oz of peanuts is a decent amount that gives you plenty of protein and fats, and only 35g of carbs. I don't eat peanutbutter, it contains hydrogenated oils. I don't eat soybeans - Soybeans contain isoflavones, which are chemically similar to estrogens. The meat I try to eat daily are fish, butterfish is my favorite, delicious sea fish that when cooked/grilled, the fish oil/fat tastes just like butter!

I'll eat veggies if they've been steamed. I won't eat boiled veggies. This week our city municipal water department is going to add a corrosive agent fluoride into the water supply, which was a national mandate, not that I drink tap water (filtered toilet water) anyways, I just won't eat anything that's been boiled in it. That also includes restaurants if I ever go out to eat, which I don't. My primary source of fats are typically: grassfed butter, animal fat like lard/tallow, fish oil, extra virgin coconut oil, and if I'm desperate enough and ran out of my favorite fats, olive oil.

I absolutely despise the taste of olive oil. I do have a gallon of extra virgin olive oil sitting there just in case of emergencies. My proteins mostly come from meat, although some come from peanuts, I don't eat peanuts every day. I don't eat mixed nuts because I'm allergic to real tree nuts, especially pecans.

Also, pre-made salted nuts/mixed nuts have cotton seed oil added to them, which is a waste product of the cotton factory and is a very pro inflammatory oil. Cottonseed oil is nothing more than a by-product of industrial waste produced during cottonseed processing. Cottonseed oil is also genetically-modified because it comes from cotton, the majority of which is grown from GMO seeds.

So it is not only in the processed foods you are eating such as cookies, crackers, salad dressings, desserts, and other foods, but also in cotton swabs, clothing, personal care products, and more. It's like sugar, it's literally hidden in almost everything you eat that's been processed/refined.

Don't even get me started on MSG, I'm Asian and most of Asian cuisine uses MSG as a primary flavoring for all their cooking. Now that American food companies figured out how to add MSG to literally everything processed/refined to make you come back and buy more of their nutritionless products.

It's an uphill battle of either eating "food that tastes like heaven now, but suffer hell later" or "eat boring whole organic plain food now and live a longer and painless life." Cognitive dissonance comes to those who frequently boggle at the crossroads of decision making.
