Keto Day 208 Update — Carnivore Day 24
Leftover carne picada and egg with cheddar slice fried in bacon fat. Left pic is kids' keto meal. I’m going to include my kids’ meals as much as I can— to keep me accountable in keeping them low carb
- Meals // Lunch: pictured & ground beef with bacon, cooked in bacon fat
Dinner: plan on eating a steak.
Kids meal: older son loves crunchy texture so we cook him crispy bacon and cheddar cheese with egg. Our little one prefers egg whites with pink salt. Both have bacon, uncured all-beef sausage, avocado & ground beef .
- Fasting: 23 hrs - Physical: bad sleep. Had to pee about 10 times and had insomnia. I hate going through the boot camp period of fat adaptation. You would think I would just stop eating carbs. .
- Emotional: cranky from glucose and sleep deprivation .
- Thoughts: I reread so much anecdotal evidence about the ZC diet. I’m motivated to feel better and just eat meat and not be scared to eat a lot (even if I gain more weight at first). I trusted the process of 50 days ZC before and I felt amazing. If I have to eat 5lb of meat a day for my body to heal, I will.
Kids: I used to have them eat 3 meals and snacks. My older son is addicted to sugar. He’s better now but we still have some high carb days.Their lchf diet usually consists of 2 large meals and maybe a small snack. It’s a complete game changer seeing them remove a lot of the junk in their diet. My younger son still nurses at 25 months but can sometimes out-eat his 4 year old brother. He definitely had less carbs in his diet since birth— it’s a regret I have with my older son’s sweet palette (he was always in a fed state with food pouches, snacks, yogurt, apple sauce, oatmeal with raisins, etc. 😭) I’m hoping I can help their future bodies by changing their diet. It’s honestly hard with my snack-loving SAD husband. .
I’ve decided I’d rather them have real sugar then artificial bc the SF stuff will make them crave sweets anyway. If I give real sugar, I’ll be much more mindful in how much I give 🤷🏻♀️ we’ll see. .
- ED behavior: none
