I don’t see such blind things from the members of this forum either… Sometimes much salt is encouraged but it really solves many people’s problems and it matters who get this advice. I saw many times that salt should be right, not too little, not too much…
I see that some people push their own beliefs and what works for them but not as in some other forums where something extremely specific “should be” followed according to some people.
We are far from perfect here but we are many so I don’t see that someone would get pushed into some possibly quite wrong direction often…
I always focus on differences Fat chance to get something very specific from me though it’s possible my positive experiences due to carnivore-ish shows a bit too much sometimes, I am not very tolerant about using stupid keto processed things galore…
But what works for someone? How could I know?
I only say more fat if it seems that’s the problem, that’s not often. I have to LOWER my fat intake and just adding fat doesn’t make me any more satiated, it may result in nausea too so I wouldn’t advise that personally. But it’s understandable that it’s a common advice when one stops getting zillion calories from carbs. Though it seems to me that so many people overeat fat on high-carb (as many popular food has both galore and many people eat massive amounts of such things), they don’t need to raise it. But it’s individual and anyway, lowering carbs may lower fat intake too. I don’t like this eat less or more thing, eat right, no matter how it was before (it matters a bit, too drastic changes aren’t for everyone).
It’s too individual, that’s why I dislike saying general specific things. They barely ever are right.
But I can buy meat from 0 to 80% fat… People often use too lean meat, I saw that zillion times. It’s fine if they like that but they should get some fat elsewhere then. I feel so lucky I like leaner and fattier meats alike, my taste still keeps my fat percentage in a smallish range but I have some ways to subtly change it if the need arises. Theoretically. I like to eat whatever I want. But if I like two things similarly, I can choose the better one.
50g doesn’t seem so much. I always ate around 30-40g net carbs (usually making sure it’s 40g, I wanted as much vegetables as I could, it was sadly tiny anyway) until fat adaptation and things went smoothly. I never measured anything but I don’t care about others, I proved for myself that my ketosis carb limit is pretty high even when I am a sedentary, short, not muscular but somewhat fat woman. But it doesn’t matter so much as just like @PaulL, I get my benefits (very different benefits but that’s not the point) being sticter, ketosis alone isn’t enough. Fat adaptation is great but still not enough. But I suspect it’s not just about carbs for me. As long as the vast majority of my food is carnivore, it seems to be fine even if my carb intake isn’t very low. But eating a bigger amount of vegetables or nuts messes up things. I am not fully sure but strongly suspect this as my experiences hint at it.
I felt healthy and I was on low-carb since years but 50g was definitely too much for me. I barely felt going into ketosis or not at all but my water weight changes were still with me in the first years (and sometimes other hints helped as well). Now I can’t tell when I am ketosis at all, everything stays the same. Good thing I don’t care, I just want to feel right and stay healthy (and I suppose I am in ketosis on carnivore-ish anyway ;)).
I saw this from multiple people here. Why this? I must eat fatty protein (it’s usually meat for me, that feels the best) after my carbs especially sugar or else I won’t feel right.
