Fat Adapted Food Log – No Sugar No Grains #NSNG

I’ve been working with a few people as to what to eat during a day.  To be honest it varies by taste and by what foods you like.  But you need to keep the carbs under 50 grams a day (10% or less of your daily percentage), and you need to keep your protein at 15-20% and then your fat between 70-75% of your daily intake.  For me, this means that I eat around 2400 calories a day.  I don’t necessarily keep track of calories, since I eat when I’m hungry, but I do like to keep track of the grams and the percentages that I eat per day.

I do use an app to help me out with this, and that app is myfitnesspal.  It’s a really good app, and one that I’ve been able to “adjust” to help me keep within my personal goals.  I can set my carbs to 10%, protein to 15% and then fat to 75%.

So … what do I eat?  Here’s a sample of my daily menu.

Breakfast: 3 whole eggs (pasture raised), + 2 egg yolks (pasture raised), 1 tbsp grass fed butter, and a mix or organic veggies (spinach, onion, green pepper, mushrooms)

Snack: 2 tbsp olive oil or 24 raw almonds

Lunch: 6oz of grass fed beef or roasted wild caught fish, mixed green salad (1/2 avocado and 10 cherry tomatoes) with homemade salad dressing (1tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp Dijon mustard)

Dinner: 6oz of grass fed beef or wild caught fish, grilled or sauteed veggies (creamed kale, grilled squash, sauteed spinach, etc).  I make sure that I have one portion of protein and then two portions of veggies.

Snack: 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of frozen berries (blended)

So that’s an example of my daily diet.  It does vary day to day, but overall it’s pretty much the same.  I eat lots of veggies, and I eat some protein.  I make sure that I have plenty of fat throughout my day.  And this is what works for me ..

  1. Thanks! This is really helpful for those of us attempting NSNG, and unsure if we’re “doing it right.” I wouldn’t mind seeing more of these!

    • Lisa, thank you and I’ll write some more this week. I’m in Seattle for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon. So I’ll do a race report, diet update and maybe a couple recipes.
