KETOGENIC DIET! It feels crazy when you're eating food and still losing weight but cutting out all carbs and sugar. 80% fat, 15% protein, 5% carb and the weight will fall off you by day 5. And before anyone says fad diet, sorry but i have been eating way healthier than when i wasn't on this diet.
Brekkie is - fat coffee, eggs, salmon, avacado.
lunch - salad with lots of cheese and meat/ tuna
dinner - as many green veg as i can get on my plate, drowned in butter with choice of chicken, burger, fish etc.
YUM food and weight loss = best diet ever!
Plus you can drink on it too. Gin and slim or vodka soda lime.
Well done on the weight loss! It does slow down on a ketogenic diet after a while as you initially lose some water weight and then it kind of tapers off, but it is a great way to not feel like dieting!
I personally do 35-40%% protein, 35% fat and 25-30% carbs as I need the energy from carbs for workout, and I think 15% protein is very low. Everybody has their own way that will work for them but I still think the ketogenic or low carb diet is miles better than the standard western diet! I'm so over bread and pasta now and love eggs, salmon, butter etc
Just to clarify for anyone who is thinking of it: All Ketogenic diets are low-carb, but not all Low-Carb diets are Ketogenic. The idea is to get your body into 'ketosis', where it is fuelled off fats instead of carbs (glucose) so your body will start burning body fat for energy instead of carbs from food, but you still need to be in a calorie deficit (eating fewer calories than your body burns).
I track all my food on MyFitnessPal and I personally prefer just staying in my calorie goal and keeping my carbs low (and hardly any sugar). Find any diet which works for you which is sustainable! It doesn't have to have a name or a book or a website, and what works for someone else mightn't work for you....
