More Easy Keto Meals: 3-Day Low Carb Food Diary


 

My scales seem to be STUCK this week but I just keep powering through with my keto macros and daily workouts.

Keto SnacksI’m doing a really simple home workout, but I’m doing it consistently. It’s 10 squat lunges, 20 tricep dips, 20 donkey kicks and 20 glute bridges.

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! πŸ˜‰

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!

Easy Keto Snacks, Gluten Free and Low Carb High Fat LCHF

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.

Dressing Up Atkins Meals

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. πŸ™‚

That was REALLY good.

Saturday’s MyFitnessPal Keto Food Diary

MyFitnessPal Keto Food Diary with LCHF Macros and Net Carbs

1828 Calories
17 Net Carbs
Protein: 83 grams

How To Get Net Carbs In MyFitnessPal (Free)

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.

Simple Keto Snacks - Flax Crackers and Zero Carb Pimento Cheese (LCHF)

I ate the pimento cheese with both Onion Garlic Flax Crackers and FBOMB Keto Krunch cheese crisps.

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

Keto Crunchy Snacks - Savory Gluten Free LCHF

Honestly I would have eaten pretty much anything with that pimento cheese! πŸ˜‰

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!

    Hi Lynn, I always look forward to your recipes and menus. I use Fitness pal, but have not been able to add fiber without paying for their Premium subscription. I’ve tried several times. Thanks, Jan

  2. Becki says:

    Hi Lynn,

    I just ordered the peanut butter macadamia keto granola! I can’t wait πŸ™‚ Thank you for your code!!

  3. Jess says:

    Hi Lynn,

    My scale is still stuck. Has been for two weeks! Hoping to see some movement too! Lost 5 lbs initially but not since the first week!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hey Jess! That’s actually very normal. After the initial weight loss, during week 2 and/or week 3 you usually see a hold with just slight fluctuations. It’s just your body adjusting to losing so much weight so fast, and five pounds in one week IS a lot to your body. πŸ˜‰

      The key is to power through that phase and just keep doing what’s obviously working so well for you. Or if you changed anything, go back to what you were doing that first week.

      I just went through the same thing, then dropped 3 pounds in the last two days, lol. It’s just part of the wonky weight loss trend – the way things work!

  4. DOROTHY A NEMECEK says:

    If you like spicy, the have that Palmetto cheese with jalapenos..That is the bomb!
    Thank you for all your post and ideas for new meals….

    Dorothy

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Good to know, Dorothy – thank you! And you’re welcome. πŸ™‚ I’ve heard it comes with bacon too, and that they have a chicken salad out now that’s great. I’d love to try the chicken salad next!

  5. Lori says:

    Hi Lynn,
    I LOVE reading your posts! They are so helpful. I noticed you always use powder flavored creamer and I wanted to see what your thoughts are on the liquid creamer…like the Int’l Sugar Free flavors. Is there a reason you only use powder?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Lori,

      The Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer is only 1 net carb per TBSP – lower than some of their other flavors, and lower than the liquids. It’s also richer and creamier, so it takes less. I find even the same flavor/brand of liquid takes way more to make my coffee as creamy, so it REALLY adds up on me in carbs! πŸ˜›

      The second reason is convenience. The powdered creamer doesn’t require refrigeration so it’s great on road trips, for flights & hotels (it needs to be a new/sealed container for flights), or just to keep in my car in case I grab a coffee on the go somewhere. πŸ˜‰

      • Lori says:

        Thank you for getting back with me: I bought some powder creamer to try. I did have another question. Are you in maintenance eating now or still weight-loss goals? I’m asking because your calories and fats seem higher than i would think for weight loss. I’m just getting started and it’s SO confusing. Some people say you shouldn’t eat all of your allotted fat grams and some people say you should always try to eat to your fat macro.

        • Lynn Terry says:

          My weight loss totally stalls if I eat too lean. There’s a science behind the way a keto diet works, which has nothing to do with calories and everything to do with “eating fat to burn fat.” πŸ™‚

          See: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/4606/lchf-diet-explained/

          And: https://www.travelinglowcarb.com/4689/ketosis-symptoms-and-low-carb-flu/

          I am still losing weight – or again I should say. I dropped 3 pounds this week. πŸ™‚ I started “mysteriously” gaining weight after 3 rounds of antibiotics and 2 rounds of steroids almost 2 years ago and have been battling “gut health” issues ever since.

          I’m only ~7 pounds over my ideal weight at the moment, but I’m definitely still in weight loss mode. I’ve never had to count or worry about calories – at any point in my keto weight loss journey.
