Day 5 of ultra-low carb

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

8am breakfast: decaf with 1/4 cup heavy cream, 2 brazil nuts

11:30 am 2nd breakfast: full-fat yogurt with 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup coconut flakes

2pm lunch: 6 oz. pork steaks with pepper jack cheese, 1/2 cup clover sprouts

4:30pm snack: 1 1/2 oz. Lilly's dark chocolate sweetened with erythritol and stevia (under 1 grams sugar), net carbs about 3 grams

8pm dinner: hot turkey sausage with collard greens topped with sour cream

dessert: 1/3 cup berries with 1/2 cup full-fat yogurt

I am not sure yet if the low-carb chocolate will work for me to stay in ketosis but wanted to try it.
Exercise was minimal again because of lack of time, about 40 minutes of walking dogs. I also spent some time hauling 50 lb. bags of poultry feed around. The good thing is that they don't feel very heavy any more.
Now looking forward to some quiet reading.

    I love the Hobbit practice of second breakfast LOL

    50#, my lord woman your fit!

    Dark chocolate (one square 86%-90%) never bothered my ketone levels.
    It has always been sugar for me to knock me out of ketosis, fruit and extreme high protein. Greens and vegetables(non starchy) have some affect, but I can still hang in there, low but still grabbing onto that thread.

    Good Luck Birgit!
