I sent the previous comment just now but I wrote it after lunch. Well since then I had dinner, tracked and filled my totally hand drawn tables with data from a site I use for tracking…
I ate my egg pudding (made with the liquid left after cooking the tongue, the kind of broth was surprisingly tasty but not enough to eat it as soup so I tried it in pudding. it worked):
And my new biscuits… Too fatty and rich but not bad, eggs and pork skin and sausage spice was used.
I ate more sponge cakes and some stew, I was hungry and didn’t make a photo of that.
My satiation weakened hours later but it passed. I definitely didn’t want to eat again and super late at that. I don’t even have much left to eat… What will tomorrow bring, I don’t know. I would want turkey, everything else is kind of boring? Or maybe I will have some idea?
Today was my weakest day all week, macro wise… A bit below 1500 kcal and pretty low protein from me, below 120g
So, I have notes and counted this and that… Maybe only I am interested about these numbers but I write these down.
My meat consumption is all over the place. I counted everything, skin too but my numbers for the last week (in grams):
550, 610, 368, 560, 1030 (“not being shy with stew” day), 583, 340. Last time I tried to eat a pound of meat a day for a whole weak didn’t end so well, I was mostly okay but definitely didn’t want to eat much meat for a while. I lost this, it seems as my average was 577g/1.28 pound meat a day. And I still could eat meat but only turkey if I can ask, definitely not much of pork for my near future…
I ate more than 7 eggs a day in average. While I wasn’t into eggs so I often ate them mixed with meat or in coffees. Well yeah, lack of cream resulted in drinking quite a few eggs during this week… And mixing meat with egg made my pork more interesting? And stew is nice alone but some sponge cakes don’t hurt… Oh and I realized pork belly in scrambled eggs is great.
Added fat was about 12-15g a day…? Not counting the fat in the stew. Seems a bit high but I put butter into a few coffees a day… So that was the main culprit.
And I had my tiny extras but they aren’t significant (except I had a worse day - fruits, of course… quite high-carb ones as it’s autumn though I have no idea about the kind of wild, tiny, green and not too sweet peaches - but still keto and only one day, I felt no change). So that’s it for my mostly dairy free carnivore-ish.
My IF was all over the place but I have few notes about it. Doesn’t matter.
Average protein is 140g a day if I can trust the data of chicken skin but I can’t. But it was one day so I am still not very far I suppose? Unless my data about the other meat items are too off.
Fat was lower, it’s unusual and it’s not because I didn’t eat that small amount of fatty cream and sour cream. I ate more than usual bresaola and a significant amount of beef leg and that’s leaner than my usual pork. I had pork belly but in moderation. Oh my stew day. More than 2 pounds of meat just from my stew… Stew is so easy to eat and I ate 3 times…
I still like these “waves”. One day can be quite meaty, another way less so…
My calories are the least reliable due to eating fatty meat and there was the mysterious chicken skin…
But they went from a bit less than 1500 kcal (or not, who knows) to over 2500 (stew… and waking up too early. but mostly the stew). Average guesstimation is 1900 kcal, my guess for my energy need is more, it would be super bad if I wouldn’t use even this tiny energy as a 75kg/165lbs human… I don’t care that such people exist, 1900 kcal is very little, I need to do my best to eat as little as I can on my most satiating diet to go this low… I could go lower on OMAD and avoiding stew, yeah But it’s good. I even do workouts and can raise my weights! I need the energy
So I am quite pleased and only a tad worry about the future. The stew is so little (Alvaro is too cute and didn’t even touch it today but I told him he made it and it’s obviously for both of us. just because he doesn’t need meat as he can function just fine eating other food, he needn’t to avoid it. and it is probably good for him nutrition wise even if he isn’t in trouble anyway), I have no turkey… I have heart though… I think of adding a single dairy meal, it’s hard to ignore the siren song of sour cream when Alvaro doesn’t even eat it ever now, time is clicking for poor thing (the sour cream, I mean), it goes well with… almost anything including the stew and it would add volume and calories it will desperately need as tomorrow’s stew will be tiny!
We will see but I already wrote too much.
