Avocados contain mannoheptulose, a not-digestable insulin secretion inhibitor. In earlier times it was used to induce diabetes in lab animals. So don't be surprised if your blood sugar level gets particularly high after eating an avocado. But it could be a lot worse, you could crack and grind the avocado's seed and eat it, as some food-and-health journals have recommended. Maybe add some sugar to mask the bitter taste. Apparently in Mexico they use the ground seed and mix it with some fat, there they use it as a poison for rats.

I'm re-formulating my diet since I've gone keto.

I'll probably be doing this:
Breakfast
3x Eggs (Avocado oil (maybe replace with butter later) for pan), heavily salted
4x Turkey bacon
1 oz walnuts
200mg magnesium
1660 mg omega3 fish oil
10mg boron

Dinner
2.5cup riced cauliflower
2 tbsp butter
8oz tuna albacore OR lean chicken/beef (any)
1 oz macademia nuts
--

I noticed I didn't really feel hungry at lunch time. I have to keep ontop of electrolytes, though. This is not sustainable if you're not overweight. I may also get rid of the fish oil.

This is actually only 90g of protein, so less than half of what I'll need. Apparently my minimum should be 140g protein.

3x Eggs (18g protein)
1.5cu Riced Cauliflower
2 tbsp butter
1x 4 oz tuna can (29g protein)
2oz (cubed) cheese
2x Serving protein shake (25g proteinx2)
1x Serving collagen (11g protein)
--
Salt food (lite salt), magnesium supplement at night.

My target weight is an active lifestyle 175 lbs - or more in lean muscle. I eat what I strive to be.'

May modify:

Eggsx6: .9 : 546
Cauliflower rice 1.5 cup: 2.26 : 60

One meal a day is very difficult with all the protein (literally cannot finish my meal). I have to find a method of increasing fat intake - that'll go down easier and add calories.

Ideally I'd cut out 2 eggs of the 6, do 1 protein shake serving. Don't want to nix the cheese; but I cannot finish (let alone start) that. The cauliflower rice may be holding me back with all the fiber; but I need the vegetables (or so I'm told).

This sounds all very complicated. I do the 8/16 routine.
8 hour phase where I eat what I want.
16 hour phase where I don't eat.

Sounds more reasonable.

Ketoade, 2x Protein shake, collagen, tuna when I get up (7:30-8:00 am).
4 eggs, 5 pig bacon, .75 cup cauliflower rice, 1tbsp butter, 2 oz cheese (9:00-9:30 am).
2 more eggs, .75 cup cauliflower and 2 oz cheese available if I'm still hungry - before 11:30 am (work).
Coffee (1pm)

This won't be enough calories, though (if not still hungry after 9:30 meal). I still need to find fats - something easy to bring at work. Cheese would work - but eating it alone may be a bad idea.
----

That's also the biggest issue with an 8/16 hour phase - I require a meal that I'd consume out of the home - and doesn't have carbs if I remain on keto. I have budgetary concerns I'm balancing with this.

Right now it's fine, I can do 8 hours - and I think I will; but that changes with things.

It's not like I have to eat throughout that 8 hour phase. Basically I just try to have at least a 16 hour phase where I don't eat, only drink water if I feel like it.
I do this regiment because I have more energy and it keeps my weight around where I want it to be.
I've heard of this eat once a day diet but I don't see how I could eat the amount of calories I need in one meal.
It depends, but at times I skip breakfast because I usually feel more hungry in the evening than in the morning when doing this. If you have a lunch break where you work it's possible to incorporate this 16 hour phase that way in your work routine.

But this is just what I do, doesn't have to work for everybody else. People have different genetics and what works for them.

Edit: I don't do this Keto diet. Real sourdough bread all the way.

Macademia nuts solve the calorie, but not the budget problem. Those are delicious; easily ate 2 oz; 400 cal. That's 8g carbs, though.

-Chia is being propagated as a superfood.
-no studies to verify any health benefits
-some studies suggest Chia might lead to more inflammation and allergies
-15 years ago the animal feed industry tried it for feeding chicken but yolk turned out smaller than desired so it was dropped again
-now it’s marketed as a healthy supplement for your cereal

-EFSA is recommending a maximum amount of 15g per day (one table spoon)
-Chia seeds are capable of binding a lot of water (25x of its own mass)
-flaxseed, a comparable seed is only capable of binding half as much water
-It is known that dry flaxseeds should not be eaten in large quantities (more than a spoon) because it can bind the water which is located in your intestinal tissue, dry that tissue out too much and you get a stuck clump mass which requires surgery to be removed and clear the passage again.
...

If you are lucky those trendy superfoods don’t mess with your health too much.

Suspected the chia seed thing was fad as well - but for the texture of it, as something different, seemed alright.

I was having major stress and irritability, resolved immediately by vitamin c. Wanted to avoid it, but I gave up on fasting (vitamin c interferes with fat burning when fasting) until my mitochondria are fat adapted. Not enough energy. I have to pace myself and switch between fasting and not fasting, so my adrenals aren't shot.

Hello to you too.
Is the diet helping, are you feeling better, having more energy?
Or is it more of a I want to look more attractive kind of diet?

Lol.. the former aids the latter, so more energy equals optimal aesthetics, as.. without energy, what are we and what can we do?

Feeling fantastic thank-you, but it’s a thin line I still tread, but getting broader with each and every week, but to what end and outcome? that is an unknown.

This sounds like a long-winded, obfuscated way of saying you do it to look better.
In any case I hope you stay on your thin line and don't get broader every week.

You’ll go far with your obfuscated insight, as you know nothing more than what I’ve said, and so you give a heavy-handed reply in return.

I don’t like that type.. heavy hands and heavy heart Neutral

Why is my use of the term ‘broader’ being equated to the physical? I was aiming towards the mental.. this is philosophy after-all. But your reply was cool. Wink

Once the mental is in check, the physical will look after itself.. the concept has been around for 1000s of years, ya know.

Yes, some ruin their figure with over-doing it with the weight or lack there-off.
Some say you just don't get back those proportions once you ruined them.

Don't worry, I was not sad when writing that.
But I get the impression that you are maybe sad about something and I don't mean my reply.

Carbohydrates make people happier, some genetic types at least. If those people don't get their carbs then they are lacking some nutrients which their body requires. Not everybody is made for low carb.

What are you implying here? that I don’t know myself and therefore my daily input and requirement?

Your focus on one aspect of what I initially said is very telling.

I always speak in broad terms, but you equate the meaning to the physical and not the mental. Why?

I'm saying you are cranky.
You are right, it doesn't have to be the low-carb diet, could be that cranky is your general constitution.

Lololol.. yeah, you are probably right, as I do consume carbs, just not starchy/state-approved physiology-damaging GMO pesticide-riddled shit.

Carbs subdue and suppress, so best to find the right carbs for you, as we know what works for ourselves better than anyone else could ever tell us.

We weren’t made to process a large amount of carbs.. it aids burn-out, and does nothing for a clean and life-long pleasing aesthetic.
