Yeah, I don't worry too much about net carbs, but I just make sure that MFP shows my fiber intake so that it's easy to figure out.

Great day today. Couldn't finish my dinner b/c I was too full from lunch....and I'm under my calorie goal!!

Not a problem! I did a search on the site and a thread came up.

I wish there was a way for MFP to only calculate net carbs, but I can probably handle that on my own, LOL.

I'm sorry I didn't see this when you needed help! But....super glad you found it. I love how MFP will let me change my settings and the settings actually STAY!!!

How did you set your percentages on MFP? I've looked through all the settings and don't see how to change percentages....

I've been playing around with the KetoDietApp, but MFP is much more user-friendly. But I like that KDA gives me charts and information specifically related to keto.

Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT: Never mind, I found it! It was under "goals" and not "settings."

Yu may already know this, but MyFitnessPal allows you to set your Protein, Fat and carbs by percentages. 70% Fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs, are my settings. This has been a helpful tool for me as I plan my day's foods ahead so they are Keto plan, but with the foods I have on hand, you can then switch over to Nutrition, and view pie chart of %'s and then hopefully stick to the plan with the foods you entered. I like it because I can tweak the amounts of foodsI plan to eat to get my %'s correct and keto ranges... . My sister is also using it for same purpose.
I was unable to track for Keto diet very well on SP. There is no way to set the % of the macronutrients like there are in MFP.


It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

Oh dear! It's been nearly a month since I tracked or came in here and posted! I didn't eat on plan for about two of the weeks, but now I'm back at it. Stress just kicks my butt sometimes and this time I let it really get to me. But....I'll be back on track now!

Yesterday and today I've done a 20-min Pilates workout, which I really enjoy.

had more caffeine today, so that helped my energy a bit. Got a half-a$$ed workout done this evening. Hoping that gets better. I'd rather not waste the time when it's a bad workout, but I guess that's better than nothing.

Oh yes, I do love those yummy fat bombs. Generally my evening fat bomb is equal parts coconut oil, pb, cocoa, plus a packet of Splenda. I love it very cold - I put it in the freezer or put it over CarbSmart ice cream when I *really* need/want a treat. YUM!!!

I may have not checked a date on something where you'd mentioned a stall and was trying to see if I could help - it sounds like you addressed with with this, and it's working! :)

I am admittedly not yet to the point where I can play around with things to see what works better, I don't know enough to know what would and wouldn't be part of the success... so I'm just hoping for now that I can keep doing what i'm doing. I'm always impressed when someone is able to figure out what their body responds to - I don't know if I'm just inobservant or what, but other than knowing soy sauce makes me retain water... I've never been one of those that knows "oh yeah, tomatos make me bloated" or "broccoli gives me gas..." I'm just not paying attention!

I've seen several recipes for "fat bombs" ... some sort of dessert looking goodness that helps when you need a little more fat here or there. I really want to try some of them, though at this point I don't seem to have had a big hole of fat calories to fill. One of them is supposed to taste darn close to reeses peanut butter cups. Let me see if I can find it...

here it is! http://ketocook.com/2012/11/08/caramel-sau
ce-method-of-serving-fat/

this woman is all about the recipes that seem too good to be true!!

Hi Vodkasoda!! You might be right on my calories being too high, but that's sort of what I'm experimenting with.... Over the past couple of days, I've left my carbs very low - 20-30g or so, left my protein under 100, and then kicked my fat intake way, way up. The scale has moved downward every day since I've done that. So, I'm going to keep going this way and see how it continues. If it doesn't keep moving down, I may have to explore my calories.

For my breakfast, yes, I make a shake of the coconut oil, butter, raw eggs, and protein. Then, pour boiling water into it to kill any possible "bad guys". It's pretty tasty and boosts my fat intake way up.....also satisfies for me many hours and I end up snacking quite a bit less throughout my day.

This is a shake that I've made for several years. Occasionally, after I've been on the shake for a couple of months, then I slowly start finding my calories for the rest of the day increasing and the shake takes up too much of my calories for the day.....so I end up cutting the shake. That's generally when my eating starts to fall apart. If I just continue the shake most days, then I can keep on track. I just need my fat in the morning!!!! LOL

I checked your food log, what is it that you usually make for breakfast? is it a shake? or is that some bullet proof coffee?

I know a lot of people love BPC, but I just can't spend the calories - I generally hit my macros so I don't need the fat bomb you get from it, so I'm trying to get used to black coffee (with a little stevia... can't go completely deprived!)

I'm only asking because that breakfast looks to be about 800 calories, it's a pretty big hit for the rest of your day. Is it a type of shake for a post workout?

It might be that your total calorie count is a little bit high? And trust me, that's my exact issue, too.

I know I'm much shorter than you are, I'm 5'2" 38yr old female... my "maintenance" calculation using most calculators is somewhere around 1700-1800. In order to see any significant weight loss I have to drop down to 1200-1400 or so. (less, if I can do it balancing my macros and not being hungry).

The benefit I've found with keto is the lasting power of feeling satiated. I've had some encouragement seeing so many people on the irc keto chat and reddit sub that have had success, but for the females... I "tried" keto for a year without counting calories and I gained 20lbs. I just don't know that it's possible to do it as a woman without counting, as our metabolisms slow down... I see you have great activity included (which should help offset quite a bit) but your numbers might be part of what's making it hard to get the scale to budge?

I've also been aiming for about 35 carbs or less, and no more than 80-90 grams of protein (and my fat grams around 100). The days I had too much protein I also noticed a stall, but I'm too new to really get a feel for how these things play out.

Jump on in anytime!!

I am in weight loss mode, as I have about 25 lbs I'd like to lose. For coconut oil, I generally add about 2 tablespoons. I like lots of fat, I enjoy coconut oil, I lose easier when my coconut oil is up up up. I haven't been seeing many losses on the scale and hope to now that I've put my coconut oil back into my breakfast meal.

Hi Kristin,
I'm going to "follow" you for a bit so I can get a handle on this new way of doing things...

* May I ask how much coconut oil you take at the meals you use it for?
* Are you in "weight loss" mode or maintenance?

I have 35#'s to lose and it seems that my body is NOT listening to anything else I've tried. All that I'm reading is pointing at the very least to "leptin resistance". So I would like to head this direction for the month of March to see if I can get a handle on both cravings and my weight issues.

It is not a "perfect" time to start this due to some high stress issues happening right now, but I'd rather get a hold of my eating than keep gaining.

I know this is "your journal"... and if I have hijacked it or you do not want to "engage" me with this, please don't feel badly to "just say NO".

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I really had a tough time today. My mind/eyes were tired, but my body wasn't....plenty of energy in my body. Felt like my food intake was erratic. Wanted the M&Ms in the office, simply b/c my mind equates sugar with feeling better, but I wasn't craving them...if that makes sense. Just chose to eat the dark chocolate and keep busy instead.

15,000 steps today

Well, the scale is up today...not sure why. Yesterday, my carbs were up to 49, which is higher than I've been having. My calorie intake has also been about 1600-1800 over the past couple of weeks, except for a few days when I wasn't feeling well. I'm going to try and nip that a little bit for a week or so. I'm also working towards the following macros:

Carbs - 25g
Protein - 80g
Fat - 103-128g

I'm going to try and get in here every day to post my food intake, but in case I don't make it in here one day, my food intake is view-able from my SparkPage.

I am still working out my macro goals for daily intake.....trying to figure out what works for my body.....specifically - more protein? less protein?

Right now I'm shooting for about 1600 calories, 120g fat, 100g protein, 25g carbs, but I'm trying to figure out if my protein intake is too high.

Hi everyone! I'm going to use this as my daily journal of sorts. Feel free to jump in and comment, give feedback, ask questions!

I've been a low carber for a few years now, and dip into very low carb every once in a while. I definitely see more results when I do very low carb or keto. I have about 25 lbs to lose; I'm 5'9", and would like to be 135 lbs.
