My Low Carb Meals Yesterday
Yesterday I had sausage & eggs from McDonald’s for both breakfast and lunch.
I shared that in my last low carb food diary, that I ordered 4 sausage patties and 4 round eggs from McDonald’s while I was out – which made 2 meals.
For dinner I just made cheesy eggs at home: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese. Quick & easy! 🙂
Then I had CHOCOLATE last night. Lots of delicious, rich creamy low carb chocolate -lol, YUM! You can see that in my food diary below…
My MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Monday:
Net Carbs: 20
Total Carbs: 54
Protein: 93 grams
Fat: 80% , Protein: 17%
In my next post I’ll tell you all about the ChocZero creations I tried last night that you see in my food diary above. They were DELICIOUS! 🙂 I am REALLY impressed with the White Chocolate Dipping Cups, which are only 1 net carb each!!;)
Every time I eat at McDonald’s it causes a bit of a stir. This week was no different, of course.:) But the comment I got on Instagram this time brought up a topic I hear A LOT in the low carb / keto communities:
As I said in my reply above, there seem to be some misunderstandings of how “keto” is defined. Nothing in a standard definition of the ketogenic diet has anything to do with: organic, clean eating, grass fed, etc.
Those things are simply preferences. Period.
The standard defintion of a ketogenic low carb diet is: “very low carb, very high fat, moderate protein” – or: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum, 25% protein max. Which is exactly what you see in my food diary above. 😉
People often ask the difference between low carb and keto. Low carb can have some variations – some people consider “under 100 carbs a day” to be low carb, and it IS lower carb than a typical diet.
Keto is VERY low carb and also HIGH fat (ideally healthy fats). It is the same as Phase One of the Atkins Diet pretty much.
I hope that clears things up a bit.
If you have any questions about it… just ask! 😉
I cannot wait to tell you all about my newest ChocZero creations! I made a white chocolate raspberry truffle and it was only TWO net carbs! I made two other low carb candies too, and they were all three delicious. 🙂
I’ll share the pictures & details in my next post – so stay tuned for that. I’m having SO much fun with ChocZero. Their dipping cups are the best invention ever!!
