Ketogenic?? Now What to Eat??

As promised…the basic way of eating ketogenic.  It really is an easy way to eat. It also helps when you are using weights in your daily routine. I picked up a lot of lean muscle eating this way. I was also NEVER HUNGRY. EVER. I would forget to eat. I basically ate to fuel myself.
SO…what now. I am currently on my second day of eating this way. Already feel better. Tonight will be more kickboxing with weights. THAT is a great stress reliever!
Ketogenic Diet Foods List:

  • Any meat (such as beef, venison, pork, veal, lamb) in any just about any cut or preparation, though check the carb content of processed meat products like sausages and ensure you don’t buy anything cured with sugar or honey.
  • Any poultry (chicken, turkey, quail, duck etc.). It is preferable to leave the skin on poultry to increase the fat content. Poultry must not be breaded or battered, but can otherwise be prepared any way you like, roasted, stir fried, deep fried, baked, grilled or barbecued.
  • Fish and shellfish. They should be fresh – things like imitation crab meat often contain added carbs – and if you buy canned fish make sure it hasn’t been preserved with added sugar. Again, it must not be breaded or battered.
  • Eggs. You will probably find that eggs become a staple when you are on a ketogenic diet.
  • Cheese. Most types of cheese are suitable for a ketogenic diet, though they do contain some carbs, so make sure you include these in your daily carb count to ensure you stay below your limit.
  • Vegetables. Vegetables will be the source of most of the carbs you eat, but you still need to choose the lowest carb vegetables with the best nutritional value. Green leafy vegetables are the best, such as spinach, all kinds of lettuce and cabbage, watercress, Brussels sprouts and kale. You can also eat broccoli and cauliflower, celery, cucumber, asparagus, bean sprouts, radishes and more, but must strictly limit you intake of sugary vegetables like peppers, onions and tomatoes, and avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes.
  • Nuts can be eaten in moderation as a snack.
  • Most kinds of oil, butter and cream can be used in cooking.
  • Fresh herbs and dry spices can be used for flavor.
  • Mayonnaise and oil based salad dressings are usually OK, but check the carb content on the bottle.

    “Effects of a ketogenic diet on the quality of life in 16 patients with advanced cancer: A pilot trial” by Schmidt et al. Studies of dietary therapy for conditions other than epilepsy continue to grow, especially for cancer. In this study of 16 patients from Germany, a modified ketogenic diet (70 grams/day carbohydrates, high fat shake added) was helpful in slowing disease progression and improving quality of life scores in 6. This was impressive considering how advanced the disease was in these patients..
