When it comes to only having one meal a day (OMAD) it seems simple. But how about when you do it for an extended period of time?
I have to say that while this intense type of intermittent fasting can have huge benefits there are also downers. In this video I share my story and what I learned. It wasn’t always easy but hey, most good things aren’t right?
Have you tried the OMAD diet? What helped you achieve your goals with it? Did you plan your one meal each day? How organized did you need to be?
What is bulletproof coffee? What is butter coffee? They’re the same thing! Butter coffee has been floating around now for some time with people both in the ketogenic lifestyle and outside of the lifestyle because the benefits from drinking a bulletproof coffee are for EVERYONE! It really doesn’t matter what your typical way of eating is.
Benefits of drinking a bulletproof coffee? Fat loss, creation of natural ketones, ENERGY, and appetite suppression. Personally, I drink a BPC every morning as my breakfast. There are days when I’m carb heavy and days when I’m strict keto, both days I include my bulletproof coffee!
I have two typical ways of making this great concoction in the morning. One includes a blender and the other includes a shaker bottle. The video below has instructions and shows how tos for BOTH WAYS!
In my Ninja Blender I blend 10 oz of Coffee, 1 TB Kerrygold Butter, 1 TB Coconut Oil, Salt and Cinnamon. I blender for a few seconds until I notice some froth in the blender. I pout into my favorite coffee mug and drink!
This version needs to be finished pretty quickly because if you allow it to sit, the butter will start to harden again. Sometimes I include a pinch of cinnamon on top as well.
New School Method
In my Blenderbottle, or Shaker Bottle, I put in 10 oz of Coffee and 1 Packet of Keto Kreme. I shake it up for a few seconds and pour into one of my many favorite mugs. Then, I drink!
This version can last longer as it doesn’t harder as it sits. My experience has been that the froth lasts longer in this version as well.
I get asked the question all the time, “Ok low carb, but like, then what do you eat all day?” What do I eat all day? Delicious food! That’s what!
For real though, it’s not hard to stay within the Macro allotment for a ketogenic or low carb diet. The way I usually track isn’t strict keto. I do more lazy keto, low carb. You can see how I track my Macros here.
So every now and then I spend a day filming what I eat. Everything. If i have a snack, it’s in there. If I drink something other than water, I include it. This particular day I had an extremely late dinner which forced me to visit Smashburger for some takeout. But even then, I found a keto-friendly option!
Check out my full day of eating keto in the vlog below. Do you have any low carb fast food favorites? Share in the comments!
Are you on a ketogenic or low carb way of eating? How do you track your MACROS? It’s a common questions. Your MACROS are your proteins, carbs, and fats. To become fat adapted and successfully in ketosis it’s super important that we intake the proper ratios of these elements. If using exogenous ketones, this won’t be as necessary, but either way, tracking your food is needed. So what app should you use? I’ve tried several and the Carb Manager one seems to be the most intuitive and helpful for this way of eating.
However, using the Carb Manager App can be confusing if you don’t have your settings correct. When the settings are correct, the app can be a wonderful tool in whatever meal plan you are following, ketogenic, low carb, low calorie, weight watchers, etc. In this video I explain how to set up your app correctly for your personal goals.
As of the time of this post, this video is RANKED #1 on youtube when searching “Carb Manager”…. THANK YOU!
