Yesterday I invited a young couple out to lunch at Grandpa Charley’s here in Andrews, a fantastic new restaurant here in town. I’m celebrating because I’ve lost 76.4 pounds on the Keto diet and it’s now time to get off that diet. The blueberry dessert I wolfed down took me out of ketosis altogether.
This young couple was happy to celebrate with me, as they are the ones who put me on the Keto diet. It has literally saved my life. I’ve gotten off my blood pressure meds (two of them) and I have a textbook perfect blood pressure without the weight, without the meds. My sugar is great. That may raise now that I’m getting off of Keto. That’s alright. I have quite a bit of room to raise that up before it’s considered even a little high. I’ve gotten off my prostate med. I feel a zillion times better. And the game changer altogether is that now I can exercise.
BUT NOW I NEED PARAMETER MACRO ADVICE!
The squash are just now harvestable and they have plenty of carbs to keep me in carb-metabolism. Fine. But I need parameters and a different calculator for whatever day’s macros according to my weight, height, sex, BMI, level of activity, purpose for the diet, etc.
- I’ve been using nutritionix.com for food values.
- I’ve been using the ruled-me.com keto calculator for the recommended values.
I’ll still use nutritionix, but I gotta ditch the keto calculator as it would now wrongly adjust the fat grams in relation to the carb grams.
Since I gained four+ pounds the first day – which I don’t regret at all – I obviously thrive better on calculated macro parameters. Anyone know of anything like this?
Or is this all a matter of calorie counting and exercise?
