Going to the grocery store tonight to stock my shopping cart full of fatty foods was such a trip – such a mental trip that is. I loaded up on a lot of dips, cheese and nuts. I bought butter… wow.
I’m only on day two.
I’m loving the fact that I can now make cheese and peanut butter my new favourite food friends but I do miss my bananas and oatmeal.
My macros on Keto:
5% carbs = 20g
20% protein = 80g
75% fat = 133g
This is a MASSIVE shift in my macros because when I was high protein, Paleo, I was 30% carbs, 50% protein and 20% fat. I don’t know what’s harder, digesting that I’m going from 50% protein to only 20% or from 20% fat to a crazy high 75%.
Today I ate the following…
my morning coffee = instant coffee grinds, coconut oil, hazelnut cream, and peanut butter
2 small coconut almond bites (I shouldn’t have eaten these… too much carbs!)
chicken breast chunks mixed together with raw spinach and gaucomole.
omelette = 3 whole eggs with spinach, broccoli, chili powder and soya sauce
1 caramel macchiato protein shake (after training)
5 spoonfuls of natural peanut butter
I feel like instead of overdosing on protein to build muscle I'm overdosing on fat to lose fat. Sounds rather ironic but let's see if this works. Today is day two.
