I just started this diet. Im going with the no veggie no fruit way. Im trying to lean out a little before I head home in 2 months. I eat the healthiest I can get at the DFAC. I try to just stick with the meats they offer. (obviously probably not grass fed meat). The thing is I dont know what other fat alternative to eat that I would be able to measure besides nuts and I have been eating nuts like crazy. Im afraid this will definitely hinder my results if I am trying to change my body composition (lower belly fat and gain lean muscle). I crossfit 5-6 times a week along with some strength training.
I don't think you need to worry about adding fat, especially if the meat you are getting isn't just fish and chicken breasts. Regular ground beef is a cheap meat with plenty of fat, and pork chops are often nicely fatty as well. If you do want to add fat, because you are lacking energy, for example, what about butter?
I would seriously avoid nuts if you are trying to lose weight. They are much more likely to keep you from losing weight than most vegetables.
ETA: another idea for getting fat, if you have outside help, is to get someone to send you a jar of coconut oil.
Well the only kind of meat i really disgest easily is chicken and fish, but I will definitely up the red meat. You think it would be too much to have a chicken breast and then maybe some other type of red meat and thats it as far that meal goes? Im just trying to see if Keto is for me. Im ordering some organic coconut chips unsweetened from nuts online. Im hoping to just use a little of this. What about in between the 2 meals? if i get hungry then what should i snack on? Or do I need to eat bigger meals to just last me in between IFs and meals? thanks guys :)
