Default Nutritional Ketosis...Low Carb, High Fat Support Group

Hello Everyone!

Ok, I searched the forum for a support group for those of us following the Nutritional Ketosis...Low Carb, High Fat, and moderate Protein way of eating and could not find one so I thought I would start one up.

I started my low carb diet May 23rd, with low fats, but quickly realized that the low fat intake was not the way for me to go. So for the past 3 weeks have switched to low carb, high fat with moderate protein and I love it!

Looking for others who would love to join me on this awesome journey!

Hi AZLinda!

What is nutritional ketosis. Is it different from Atkins Induction?

I started ideal protein in February (low fat and crab and high protein). Like you the low fat was the hardest part. I've stopped counting fat and added in cheese, cream, butter and nuts and have still been losing. Have you been to Dr. Peter Attia's blog?

Hi Ginabeana! So happy you are joining me! That is the plan I originally started, but it just wasn't for me. Cheese, Cream, Butter, Nuts, Avocados, Coconut, 80% dark chocolate, eggs, coconut oil, Fish oil, Bacon, sour cream ect Feel so much better! I am aiming for 75 percent of my daily intake coming from fats, 25 from protein, and 5 from carbs.

Yes, I LOVE Dr. Peter Attia's blog!!

How are you doing? I am down 18 lbs! Got a ways to go but I will get there!

Hey Linda,

I'm I'm Ideal Protein but am allergic to so much (gluten and now sucralose it seems) that I am thinking of joining you on this plan. Right now I'm doing alternative products and am down almost 10 lbs in 2.5 weeks.

Is it still going well for you?

I tend to do better on fat and my doc agrees with that a lot more than prepackaged chemicals. IP constipated me, even with the laxative.

75% fat, 25% protein, & 5% carb? AZlinda, the math is a little off but I'm pleased if it's working for you! Do you track your meals somewhere online? I'm curious about your avg day!

Right now I'm averaging 60%fat , 25% protein with relative ease and habit. In terms of weight loss, well, I maintain pretty effortlessly like this. I need to make more of an effort for weight loss. I'm experimenting.

Is there a decent forum here for nutritional ketosis?

Hey guys!! I'm so sorry, I was beginning to think that nobody was interested in joining me in this thread, so after awhile, I quite checking for replies. I have been spending some time in one of the support groups I joined over in fb called Optimal Ketogenic Living. But I was very happy when I checked in here and saw you guys!

I am so happy you are joining me! It is going great! I changed my macros a bit.... I am still low carb, high fat, and moderate protein, but I upped my protein a bit and lowered my fats just a smidgen to allow for more fat to be utilized off my booty..haha So now my settings are.. 5% Carbs, 30% protein, and 65% fats.

Haha, thanks for catching that math error Souvenirdarling! That was suppose to be 70/25/5! Math was never my best subject...doh! LOL!! I changed my macros up just a bit so now they are... 65/30/5 and so far so good.

In4ligfe.. I don't think so..at least none that are active any longer. I looked prior to starting this thread. Are you doing NK as your WOE? I would love it if you joined this group!

Hi AZ Linda, are you losing well on this plan? How many pounds a week or month, and what are you eating?

Are the ratios you gave based on calories, volume or what? Also are you eating things like whipped cream?

Thanks

Hey Linda, I'm over at Optimal Ketogenic Living on FB, too. It makes so much sense to me that your body needs protein to protect muscle and not push so much fat, just burn it from your body.

Hi so pleased to have just found you on Google!

I an delighted with my LCHF diet with not too much protein. I aim to eat 80% fat, around 60g of protein and 5% of carbs. It's taken me about 8 or so weeks of tweaking to discover my numbers, though I'm not jumping through hoops to make sure I hit the figures everyday. So long as they average out at the end of the month I'm happy. I also try to do a bit of intermittent fasting, for example: not eating after 4pm until 2pm the next day. Trying to this once or twice a week.

Since the middle of July I'm pleased to say I've lost 30 pounds. This is fantastic for me, being a 61 year old female, with all the signs of being insulin resistant. Other diets just haven't worked for me for at least a decade.

Can honestly say, I've not felt so good for years! It's got to be the way to go, though I don't imagine this woe will work for some, we are all so different.

I log my food in FS which works great, but sadly I think FS are having problems.

I'd love to be able to give and receive support for this woe, as I think it's just so brilliant!
