I’m 100% anti macro. My doctor says “It’s not about the fat. It’s about the carbs.” I think he is 100% correct. If you stay below 50 carbs, your body is going into ketosis, no matter what kind or amount of fat you eat. If you have a very active lifestyle that consumes more carbs, you can probably go higher than that, but I’d have to do research to see if that’s true.
I honestly believe ANY super-strict diet that tries to dictate how much of each thing we have to eat is off-putting to most people. Some people need structure. I like making my own choices. If staying below 50g of carbs can keep me in ketosis, there are myriad ways to do that. You don’t have to necessarily restrict yourself to green, leafy vegetables and nothing else. If you choose to eat less fatty meats and make sacrifices to indulge in some high-carb food for a day, so what? If you stay below 50g of carbs, you’re still going to be in ketosis.
I actually like the mediterranean WOE. I like lean cuts of beef occasionally, but before this diet, I ate beef only on my birthday and holidays. Since I live alone without a lot of friends or family around, I would treat myself to home-cooked surf and turf on those days. I actually love seafood and fish. I honestly think Keto Mediterranean is the best diet for me.
