The Day Off this week was extended by three days. It was inconvenient to bring or find Keto-esque food. Once I got a Keto friendly lunch (the meat and cheese platter), other times I was content to devour just one item on the menu that I could find. The problem was the calories (way too many) and not being able to measure anything over against any macros.
In three days I gained three pounds, going from 226.6 to 229.6. So, that’s six steps back as I normally lose on average of just over a half pound a day on Keto. But – Hey! – back home and back to the Keto routine fully, always, mind you, staying in Ketosis.
This is the reason I don’t like to accept even Keto food from others as I don’t know the values (precisely!!!) and even if I did, I might well exceed my macros with that gift, with carbs enough to knock one to a carb metabolism. Not good. This is the one draw back of Keto. But sometimes you have to take a hit for the team. This was the case during these three days.
Now, someone mentioned that there are good fats and bad fats. I know some good fats:
- Olives and olive oil
- Fat from seeds such as flax and chia
But is good fat also to be had from:
- full fat non-sugar yogurt, butter, cheese
- pork sausage, pork brats, bacon
I’ve been told that there are bad fats, besides McDonald’s deep fry oil, such as:
- hamburger fat
Some questions, then:
- Is all of that true?
- Are these few points on the lists above correct?
- Should some be moved?
- What are others to pursue or avoid?
