I am currently on a (what I call) ZC journey. To me, this means pretty much going without anything plant-based, only food that did have a mother at a certain point (). I currently eat:
- fatty meat and sausages without sugar and a at least 2:1 ratio of fat to protein
- Super-high-fat cheese >60% fat (no other dairy products, due to lactose)
- Egg yolks (even though they contain carbs)
My macros are 80% F,19% P,1% C (only traces)
It’s a struggle to cut out nuts, veggies and dairy like mascarpone for me, but I wanted to stay on a strict regimen during my new induction phase to keto. Now my question:
As this diet pretty much rules out foods all the high-magesium-and-potassium foods, should I supplement for those micronutrients? I’ve not been getting any cramps to far, but my calves have been twitching here or there, indicating that something might be ahead.
What about selenium? I used to eat tons of Brazil nuts (super-high in selenium).
What else should I be supplementing (if anything)?
