  • What I learned so far:
    - Low: sugar, carbs and starch
    - High: saturated fat
    - Moderate: protein/dairy

    This needs to be balanced. I read somewhere that we shouldn’t eat more than 50 grams of carbs a day. The amount of protein and dairy differs from website to website.

    I will focus on more fats. Olive oil and coconut oil, got that. I don’t use real butter, but I will get it. Oh and French cheese, but not on 🥖
    • Yes, it's a strange thing when we start keto, as we find ourselves needing to deprogram our minds, from the medical orthodoxy of so-called "expert nutritionists." So fats, fats and more fats are good for you and don't make you fat, they make you slim....And the carbs, to excess, make you fat...

      When you start eating butter, which should be the grass-fed type, which you should check on the label, you might find yourself trying a bit, hesitatingly and not going further, but you do need a good dollop....I scoop out a good amount, each meal and eat directly...on a spoon...You could add it to coffee, also...Same with coconut oil....A good dollop....on a spoon....😋

      Same with salt, we have been programed to limit it, thinking it causes HBP, but it does not, if balanced with potassium....2:1 ratio, more potassium, less salt...K+:Na- But the salt can easily total a teaspoon a day....Depends on the season and how much exercise being conducted...In winter I use a flat spoon, in summer I heap it a bit...
      Don't use table salt, but do use pink Himalayan sea salt....or a quality sea salt, of your choice....I like the Himalayas, because of it's associations with the Wesak festival, of the Ascended Masters..😇

      I cook in olive oil, as I said earlier, but it must be a good single-source brand, from a country where they value quality...Such as family run businesses, in Italy...You should go for 100% Italian, extra virgin olive oil.
      If you check a brand, noting that most are fake olive oil, it should have a grassy taste, with a bit of a kick, like pepper, at the back of the throat...and on the tongue....The majority of olive oils are fake compilations, made from multiple countries....The brand I use currently, which is the real deal, is Filippo Berio...100% Italian...It's fab...😋 I use it for frying bacon and eggs, etc, but I also have a couple of spoons, a day, and add to salads....
      • Olive oil for cooking, okay. Not sure about eating it directly. Maybe mixed with vegs or some kind of food dip.

        The salt can be mixed in meals, soups and nuts can be salted too. I have sea salt, the pink Himalyan was out of stock.

        What is the reason for low protein in the Keto diet? I really like 🍳 I don’t eat them daily, but they fill me up. I don’t have to lose weight, I actually should gain about 5+ kg.

        More fats, less carbs, I go for that. I’m not planning to panic about carbs, but I will add more fats and fresh food 😇
        • That's the way, take it in stages and branch out, as and when....One correction though, is that the protein should be moderate, rather than low......This relates to the possibility of overloading the kidneys and liver, processing excess amounts, if you ate a large amount....The way to tell, if too much protein, is if your urine (yuck, I know) becomes frothy, then you may be eating to much...

          So eat well, even on the OMAD I do, I get a good amount each day......But moderate.....Not low protein....The ideal amino acids can be gleaned from free-range, pasture raised chickens...I have a local farm who supplies really good quality eggs....Always better than supermarket eggs...Try the small outlets for quality eggs, at green groucers, small shops....
          Berg has them every day, but I alternate my proteins, so a couple of eggs, one day, oily fish, such as salmon, or sardines, the next, ham, bacon, beef, etc, etc....And of course, all the veg, as well..
          • So adagio moderato on the proteins 🎶

            I don’t eat much meat, I find it heavy to digest. But softer meats in a stew or chicken (soup) sounds good to me. Or thinly sliced on a carby sandwich 😉

            Dr. Berg eats hamburgers, not the Mac version. I may actually like that occasionally, even without a sandwich.

            My local bakery sells low carb bread. I may try that next time.
      • I have a small jar of organic coconut oil which I have been using for dry hands and skin in the winter. I tried all sorts of organic herbs, teas and oils to deal with dry skin and unruly hair 😄

        Last week I bought a larger jar of organic cold-pressed coconut oil for my let’s-eat-more-healthy experiment.

        Now comes the magic. This weekend I ate two teaspoons of coconut oil daily. And my skin starts to feel smoother. Also, I have more energy and less achy muscles in the morning.

        I’m used to pick the raw/organic/virgin version when available and affordable. Most stores nearby don’t sell organic food, so I occasionally order it online. I really prefer organic fruits and vegs, but I need to walk a couple of extra miles to get it.
        • Ah, Movella can fill you in on such topical applications...She has a degree in beauty therapy....As well as accountancy....
          Hehe...What a combination...😄

          But, if you would like a tip on dry skin and hair, from the keto perspective I would recommend any food with zinc in it, as especially good for skin...Also, in the winter eat more eggs, maybe a couple per day...You will notice that your hair and skin gets really nice and supple....
          But indeed, coconut oil has made a difference, so highly recommended...
          Another thing to remember about achy muscles and joints, is that they can be prevented by regular cod liver oil and butter, in the diet...Or good D3 and K2 rich food sources...Calcium gets mobilised from soft tissues, like joints, into the blood and from there, into bones and teeth...where needed....Salmon and sardines are great for the diet, certainly every week...
          • Thanks! 😊

            I take notes and I’m learning. I’m not a fanatic and go slowly 🚶🏻‍♀️🌲🌲🌲

  • When it comes to carbs and sugar, which is a more healthy option: bread/cereal or fruit that contains too much sugar?

    I’d say that fruit is the healthy option because it isn’t processed. I apparently love the sugary stuff ☺️😁
