My scales seem to be STUCK this week but I just keep powering through with my keto macros and daily workouts.
I’m FEELING that too, but I’m going to be adding in more body weight and toning exercises as I can.
I didn’t have much of an appetite Sunday and Monday so my calories are way lower than usual, but still no movement on the scale.
Like I said, I just keep on keeping on. The scales will move again when they’re ready! 😉
You can see what I ate on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in my last 3-Day Keto Food Diary then below is what I ate on Saturday, Sunday and Monday…
My Keto Meals on Saturday
I had a quick snack-style breakfast at my desk on Saturday morning: one 30 gram serving of raw pecans and two servings of Peanut Butter Macadamia Keto Granola (that’s our discount link) – with my usual coffee and water of course!
I had cheesy scrambled eggs for lunch, then I went to Kroger to pick up some almond flour for some baking I wanted to do this week.
While I was there, I spotted this great find in the Kroger Deli: a zero carb pimento cheese! And it’s DELICIOUS.
I also picked up an Atkins meal so I could have an easy dinner when I got back, and decided to try that pimento cheese IN my Atkins meal…
I cooked the Chicken & Broccolo Alfredo by the instructions, then topped it with both pimento cheese and Daisy brand sour cream.
But the REAL magic happened when I stirred it all together!
It came out super creamy and deliciously rich. And such an easy way to make a “keto casserole for one” style dinner. 🙂
That was REALLY good.
Saturday’s MyFitnessPal Keto Food Diary
17 Net Carbs
Protein: 83 grams
78% Fat, 18% Protein
You’ll notice that Protein is only 18% of my total daily calories, yet I had 83 grams of protein. The recommended daily amount of protein for women is 46 grams a day.
So while I’m eating “high fat” I’m also getting *plenty* of protein.
This is why you can’t go by grams, but rather have to go by ratios or percentages. See this link for a detailed explanation & illustration of proper macro ratios:
My Keto Meals on Sunday
I know this is not a “traditional breakfast” lol, but that pimento cheese is SO good I decided to make a snack plate to take to my desk while I worked on some creative projects.
I’ve never been a fan of flax crackers, it’s just a texture thing for me, but these did have really good flavor. I don’t like the baked cheese products either, again just a preference – I find them ALL too salty. But FBOMB does make good clean products.
Our FBOMB discount code is: LOWCARBTRAVELER
Honestly I would have eaten pretty much anything with that pimento cheese! 😉
I had cheesy eggs again for lunch/dinner.
I snacked on my first plate throughout the day, and didn’t even end up finishing that. I just didn’t have much of an appetite on Sunday.
I think the full amount of each is still logged in my MFP diary though even though I didn’t finish ALL of it…

My Keto Meals on Monday
For breakfast I made cheesy eggs and fried up an Oscar Mayer Smokies link to go with those.
This is what the Smokies package looks like:
I had some errands to run in the afternoon so I picked up dinner at Gondola, a Greek/Italian place.
I got the Philadelphia smothered with mozzarella & sauteed mushrooms (no onions) with roasted broccoli & cauliflower:
I ended up making two meals out of that.
Oddly no appetite yesterday either. But what I did eat was great!
