I do have to say that I did get tons of worksheets and recipes for the diet. There is a 45 day course I can follow. I am just trying to decide if I should try to follow it now before I go down to Gig Harbor to take care of my daughter after her foot surgery. I know that I will be taking care of 3 of my granddaughters; getting their breakfast, getting them off to school, taking and picking up at bus stop, cooking dinner for family and anything else my daughter, Sarah, needs me to do.
Module 7 of the Keto Masterclass Let’s Do This Thing! In this one I needed to about my macros. Lots of good downloads this time. Robb recommended getting Cronometer to keep track of what you eat until you can get to the point where you just know. He even helps you get set up which I really liked.
Robb suggested going here:
to help you figure out what you need of protein, fat and carbs you need. Also, other things too like calories. You need to do this first to set up he Cronometer.
I learned what vegetables were higher in carbs, how many carbs were in different nuts, and there was an ultimate macro guide. It was a lot of interesting things. Learned more about fat.
Then there were the 9 rules of Keto
#1: Be meticulous with your macros
#2: Your carb count is king
#3: Eat all of your protein allotment—don’t skimp!
#4: Don’t fear fat
#5: Eat real food
#6: Get some shut eye
#9: Electrolytes Yes, electrolytes are THREE of the rules—that’s just how important electrolytes are to your keto success. Make sure to keep track of your electrolyte intake the same way you count and track your macros. Failure to adequately supplement electrolytes is the primary reason people don’t succeed on keto.
I did download the Cronometer. I can actually use it. I do like it to keep track of my food intake.
Next will be Module 8. I will let you know what I learn from it next time.
Have a great day!
