Just came from my second DXA scan and I have gained Fat! I’ve been in nutritional ketosis since May, I fast (usually 16/8 with BPC in morning to get me thru), I don’t “cheat” and I keep my carbs below 20 net grams daily. What am I doing wrong?
Total Body Fat - 39.7%
Total Mass - 168.1
Fat Tissue - 66.7
Lean Tissue - 96
BMC - 5.3
Total Body Fat - 41.9%
Total Mass - 168.2
Fat Tissue - 70.4
Lean Tissue - 92.2
BMC - 5.6
I haven’t been hardcore tracking my meals but I know what I’ve eaten over the last few days and it’s typical.
BPC in morning with butter and MCT
Lunch is usually steak, a burger or some salmon. If I have a burger it might be 5 Guys little bacon cheeseburger and mushrooms on lettuce, if I build my own from somewhere it would normally be 1/3 lb
beef with avocado and bacon and cheese maybe grilled mushrooms on lettuce. If it’s steak or salmon it would be accompanied with a side salad usually Caesar with no croutons.
I usually eat between 2-4.
I don’t get home until late (I’m in production and it’s long hours) if I’m home around 7:30 it’s early!
When I get home I might have a chicken thigh with skin and pork rind “breading” in the air fryer or rib eye or liver.
I always use oil based dressing on my salad - although I may be picking up some extra carbs there if I’m eating out which happens a lot.
I think my problem might be I do have strawberries or raspberries for dessert with heavy cream. Not every night but several nights per week. I need something to chill out with when I’m vegging in front of the TV.
Help - I’m thinking I need a keto coach or nutritionist.
