I’m trying to find a version of Keto that doesn’t make me ill. I know a lot of people say “Oh, it’s just your body adjusting,” but I have health problems that may be a contributing factor in why I’m not feeling so well on keto.
The one thing I’ve changed a lot is FATTY MEAT. I used to eat mostly chicken, fish and seafood with occasional pork chops when they were cheaper. Now I’m eating all this fatty red meat and it’s really irritating my GERD. I took my GERD meds this morning before I ate about 1/2 pack of bacon, eggs with cheese cooked in butter and bacon fat and now my heartburn is horrendous!
I tried the Mediterranean diet awhile back, and made the same mistake everybody else does, eating too much fruit, pasta and bread. You really need a lot of willpower not to overeat on that diet! I mean, calories are still calories.
I was looking at the Keto Mediterranean diet and I think that may be a good choice for me. I can basically eat anything I want, just have to count carbs carefully. I’m going to go for 50 carbs instead of 20, because I’m not sure eating that much fish and seafood with mercury in it is so great for you.
So I’ll keep on using some of the Keto tricks, pork skin flour to make salmon patties, but I really do need to be able to eat my sardines on crackers. I figure on the days I crave sardines and crackers (10 crackers 22g carbs), I can eat extra low carb the rest of the day and with 50 carbs, I will be fine. It’s little stuff like this that I really miss a lot.
Just wondering if anyone else is doing this kind of keto Mediterranean WOE…
