I’ve been asked by a few people to post my keto meals on the blog to help people get a sense of what I’m eating. The problem is that I don’t weigh my food, so knowing exact carb content is difficult. I guess, and I try to err on the side of caution by over-estimating the carb content of my foods to try to stay under 20g net carbs a day, but I’m sure I go past that every now and then. I do use ketostix to gauge my ketosis, but as my body adapts to using ketones for energy, the levels in my urine decrease. I’ve started to see the levels decreasing on the stix starting this week although my food has been every bit as keto-friendly as the first three weeks.
I most definitely will begin posting my daily food logs. I just need to find a way to make it actually worthy of posting by being valuable in showing not just what I eat, but perhaps the macro content of the foods. I am actively working to figure this out, and as soon as I do, I will start posting them. I’m hoping to get a good start on that this week!
I do apologize for the delay, and please don’t think I’m shirking my responsibilities or ignoring your request. I just want to do it right, and I want to make it worthwhile. I also had drill with the National Guard this past weekend, and my days were very long: 14-16 hours of solid work each day. I was lucky to be able to eat keto-friendly foods during drill, and I’ll be discussing how I was able to accomplish that as well in a later blog post.
