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 ..
