Today I thought I’d put in a typical day’s meals on a low-carb, high-fat diet. I’m using today’s meals for this.
Breakfast: Eggbeater omelette with honey ham, cherry tomatoes and cheddar
When I was doing the South Beach Diet, I’d make this just about every morning, and I’d use cooking spray instead of a solid fat like butter or coconut oil. South Beach is a low-carb, low-to-moderate fat, moderate protein diet, and I did have great results on it. At the moment, I am trying out a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet with moderate protein. I’m aiming for 49 grams of protein daily determined like this:
1 gram of protein per kilogram of ideal body weight, minus 10%. So for instance, I’m assuming that my ideal body weight is 120 pounds:
- Divide 120 pounds by 2.2 to determine your weight in kilograms= 54.5 kilograms
- Multiply 54.5 x 1 = 54.5 grams of protein. Now subtract 10%.
- Multiply 54.5 x 10% = 5.45 grams
- 54.5 – 5.45 = about 49 grams of protein per day.
