Today is food shopping day. I hate food shopping. 4 stores and still don't have half the stuff I need. This place is horrible for grocery stores except for the new @publix . I miss @harristeeter . So @starbucks is my breakfast and half my lunch. For lunch I shoved some @boarshead_official ham and hard boiled eggs in my mouth and washed it down with this. #ketolife#lowcarblife#ketodiet#keto#ketolunch#ketobreakfast#ihategroceryshopping
Taco salad! Taco salad! Taco salad! - what I'm chanting in my head as I eat my lunch.
A mix of chopped iceberg lettuce, green onions, & cilantro, with taco meat, fresh shredded cheddar, pico de gallo, & jalapenos.
Dressing is 1c mayo, 1/4c. sf bbq sauce, 1/4c. sour cream, chives, parsley, 1 clove garlic, & hot sauce to taste.
Breaking my 20 hour fast with keto lettuce wraps and a protein shake! 😅
Lettuce wraps include:
•green leaf lettuce
- side of pork rinds
Protein shake includes:
•Garden of Life protein powder
•heavy whipping cream
Hey guys, if you haven't tried Respect Turkey Burgers, definitely check 'em out. I threw a slice of provolone and some sautéed mushrooms and onions over one for lunch (left bread out and added broccoli as a healthier side option). It's very good. #keto#ketolunch#homemadelunch
Sometimes a coworker makes an offer that trumps meal prep!! Gyro salad for the win. Buried under all that delicious meat is lettuce, cucumber, black olives and feta cheese. #ketotransformation#ketolunch#keto
Here’s an excellent repost by @free.keto.cookbook 🙌
Hey guys! 👋🏼🙇🏻♂️ Did you know that you can be in DEEP ketosis (which is basically when your body begins burning fat) without consuming ANY FAT WHATSOEVER? How could this be? Because your body doesn’t just store fat for fun. It stores it TO BURN IT. Put another way, no need to eat "high fat" if you have the fat!
🧐 Many people experimenting with ketosis try to drive their ketones higher by adding more oils, butter, cheese, and "fat bombs." But the truth is, ketone production in your body is not a function of fat consumed, but of carbs NOT consumed (as well as overall calorie intake). Make sense?
🍪 Ketone production begins when insulin levels are low, and your body has burned through its stored sugars. Of course, if you're doing a ketogenic diet, you'll need to eat stuff, and particularly things that don't stimulate insulin. What doesn't stimulate insulin? Fat. So you eat fat. But that fat isn't what's driving ketone production. It's the lack of exogenous (externally-sourced) glucose and subsequent insulin spikes.
💣 How many carbs can you eat and still be in ketosis? EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. Nutrition isn't a hat 🧢 : there's no such thing as a one-size-fits all diet. But a good starting place is 5-10% of calories, so for a 2000 calorie day that would be about 25-50 grams of carbs.
⚠️ And of course if you have a medical condition best to check with your doctor before making drastic dietary changes. 🤓
