Wondering what to eat on keto?

Try these tasty meal options.

we’re combining healthy keto with intermittent fasting .Okay .

Keto and intermittent fasting

You wanna go as long as you can in the morning without eating .

You just don’t wanna eat unless you’re hungry .

That’s the the the the thing that you need to focus on because so many people eat when they’re not hungry , and they’re wondering why it’s not working , they’re not getting results .

Because the body finally is burning fat , and then you start eating .

What will happen is you’re gonna raise insulin and then your insulin is gonna come high , and then it’s gonna push your blood sugars low .

Then you’re gonna be hungry an hour and a half later .

So really it’s what you ate the night before that’s gonna dictate if you’re hungry in the morning .

If you do this correctly like I’m showing you , with just 2 meals a day , you’re gonna wake up in the morning not hungry .

So the goal is to go as long as you can .

You may find that you can’t go all the way to lunch .

You have to eat at like 11 o’clock .

Eat your breakfast there .

But what’ll happen , you wanna keep pushing it to the point where your your body is fully adapted to fat burning .

You’re no longer sugar burning .

That could take 3 days up to 5 days .

Sometimes it takes longer to get into full ketosis .

Alright ?

So that’s the first rule of thumb .

If we can do 2 meals with a 4 hour window , okay , And what that means is that we eat and then we wait 4 hours and we eat again .

That’s your window .

That will give you a 20 hour fasting period .

That’s incredible .

That’s enough to see some serious results .

The only time that would not work for someone as far as weight loss goes is let’s say they’re going through menopause .

They have a slow thyroid condition and they have a history of dieting and their metabolism is so slow , They’re gonna have to push these together and have 1 meal a day , and then they will lose weight .

And there are even people that still will lose just a little bit on this and they might need to go even longer because their metabolism is so dead .

And I’ve had this happen not to a lot of people , but certain people that just , you know , from birth they just had a slow metabolism for one thing or another .

And they need to go like probably eat every other day .

Okay .

Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting

Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting:
1. Go as long as you can in the morning without eating. Don’t eat unless you are hungry. 

You need to keep pushing it to the point where your body is fully adapted to fat-burning, and you’re no longer in sugar-burning. Adapting to ketosis could take 3 to 5 days or longer. 

While on the Healthy Keto diet, try doing 2 meals a day with a 4-hour eating window, which will give you a 20-hour fasting period. This can give you major results, except if you’re dealing with issues like:

 • Menopause

• A slow thyroid condition 

• A history of dieting 

• A slow metabolism 

If you’re struggling with one of the issues above, you may need to start only eating one meal a day on the ketogenic diet to see significant results. But, in some cases, you still may not see results or weight loss. In this case, you may have to have one meal every other day until the system heals. 

2. What to eat during meals while doing the Healthy Keto diet and intermittent fasting:

Meal option 1:

• Eggs (2 to 4) – pasture-raised organic 

• Avocado 

• Cheese – high-quality, organic, grass-fed

• Bacon – nitrate-free, organic, less than 1 g of sugar 

• Nut butter – almond butter, peanut butter (sugar-free)

Meal option 2:

• Meat (3 to 6 oz)

Vegetables or salad (with olive oil and vinegar)

• Nuts/Seeds 

Meal option 3 :

• Chicken (with skin)

• Asparagus 

• Olives 

Meal option 4:

• Fish/Seafood – salmon, sardines

• Salad 

• Fat bomb 

Important things to remember:

• It’s okay to consume vitamins any time of the day 

• It’s okay to consume ACV (apple cider vinegar) and lemon 

• It’s okay to consume coffee and tea (only one in the morning—try a bulletproof coffee with MCT oil)

• If you have an urge to snack, it means you need more fat and greens 

• If you have cravings for bread, then you need more B vitamins (electrolytes, B vitamins, and nutritional yeast)

• Consume sea salt

• Get exercise (the best time to exercise is when you’re fasting)

• It can take 3 to 5 days or longer to fully keto-adapt (the way to know you are in ketosis is if you don’t crave anymore)

That’s just what they need to do until the the system heals .

keto

What to eat on keto?

But for everyone else , we’re gonna talk about what are you gonna eat on this first meal and the second meal .

I’ve surveyed a lot of people and this is what they eat and this is what I eat .

Eggs .

I do 4 eggs a day .

You can do 2 to 4 eggs .

Pasture raised organic eggs .

They’re a little more expensive but they’re worth it .

Now it’s really important to eat healthy eggs because the factory farm eggs are just so bad .

They’re just terrible .

Then we have avocado .

Avocado has tremendous amount of potassium and really good fats to help you go longer .

Cheese .

Now if you are a guy and you have a prostate condition , don’t do the cheese .

But if you have a high quality organic , cheese from a grass fed cow , goat’s cheese is even better .

Not a problem .

So then we have bacon .

Some people don’t wanna do bacon .

That’s totally fine .

I like bacon .

I do bacon from the farmers market .

If you’re gonna go to the health store , get the nitrate free organic bacon with with sugars less than 1 gram .

Bacon , by the way , in pork has high levels of vitamin b 1 .

And for those people who are saying bacon is unhealthy , yet they’re consuming chicken , I would beg to differ because , chicken is really disgusting unless you’re doing again , from the farmers market .

Nut butters , you can do almond , butter , peanut butter .

Make sure there’s no sugar in it .

Maybe a couple tablespoons .

Now the reason for this is to give you enough fat , especially in the beginning , so you can go longer , okay , without getting hungry .

You know , you’re eating at 12 , you have , a hamburger or a piece of meat or any a lamb or whatever meat that you want , 3 to 6 ounces .

Let’s say you’re younger and , you have a faster metabolism , then you do 8 ounces .

Let’s say , for example , you’re an athlete , you do 8 ounces .

Let’s say you’re a very large person , you need more protein , do 8 ounces .

I wouldn’t wanna go over 8 ounces per meal .

Now we’re not talking about the actual protein grams .

We’re talking about the actual product of meat itself .

3 to 6 ounces or 8 ounces .

So you don’t have to calculate the grams inside that meat .

It is a big difference .

And then we consume our vegetables .

You can steam them .

You can have some raw or the salad .

I do a lot of salads .

We need a large amount of salad .

So , some people break up their salad between this meal here and this meal and they do maybe 5 cups and 5 cups or maybe 4 cups and 4 cups .

I mean 4 cups is not that that much .

It’s just It’s kind of like a medium sized salad .

I personally do all of my , salad at one sitting .

I’ll do like 10 cups , and sometimes I’ll do more than that .

So I’m used to it .

If you feel worse with consuming those greens , that means that your microbes are not quite in the right place .

 SIBO

You might have a condition called SIBO .

I’ll put a link down below , in which case you’d you wanna cut back on your because what’s gonna happen , the fiber in the vegetable is gonna retain fluid and you’re gonna feel bloated and you’re gonna your weight loss is not gonna come off .

It’s not because you’re not losing weight .

It’s because you’re retaining fluid .

Just realize you wanna feel good after consuming this and you may have to eat small amounts and gradually increase it because guess who’s eating your the fiber from your vegetables ?

The microbes .

And they might not be , plentiful enough to do that .

So there’s many different reasons .

I’ll put a video down below just on that one topic .

Olive oil , balsamic vinaigrette is a great dressing .

Maybe a handful of nuts , some seeds because we want that fat .

So this is like one option of a meal .

This is another option of a meal just to give you an example .

I put a link down below to my website because I have a lot of different examples of different meals .

I have a whole recipe .

But this would be an example of a typical meal for someone .

Okay , let’s say you do fish .

I love salmon .

Salmon is one of the best proteins because it has omega 3 .

We wanna do quality protein .

So you can also do sardines .

Believe it or not there are a good fats and sardines .

I did a video on that .

Or seafood , okay .

This gives you the iodine .

seafood

So you do your fish or seafood , your salad .

This is for your dinner and a fat bomb .

What is a fat bomb ?

It’s like a little cookie with healthy fats in it .

You can make recipes for this .

A lot of people consume a fat bomb just to get them satisfied so they can go from one meal to the next .

As your body adapts to fat burning , you probably won’t even need that because you’re burning your own fat , but in the beginning it’s really helpful .

Here’s another option for some food .

You can do chicken with the skin preferably .

Nice and crispy or chicken wings .

Let’s say you do again 3 to 6 ounces of chicken or chicken wings .

Do your protein , it’s moderate protein .

Asparagus .

Or any other vegetable that you like .Or your salad .

And then you do olives as your fat .

I do a lot of nuts myself .

I do that after the meal , to the point where I’m like really satisfied so I can go longer .
But the key is not snacking at night .

So you want to add enough fat to go from this meal all the way to breakfast .

Now the number one weakness people have I just realized was boredom .

So you’re gonna have to keep really busy right here and make sure you’re not bored so you don’t eat the wrong thing .

Keto diet tips

Keto diet tips


You can consume your vitamins .

It’s not a problem any time of the day .

Apple cider vinegar , a teaspoon , and some lemon is really good to have when you drink water .

Coffee in the morning .

Try to just do 1 .

You can do tea .

You can add some bulletproof .

That’s a MCT oil , coconut oil .

You can put that blend that in your drink if you want .

Especially in the beginning to allow you to go without having the first meal .

Not a problem .

But if you find that that slows down your weight loss as you do this over a period of a couple weeks , then you might wanna drop out the extra fat .

Urge to snack , that means you need more fat and more greens , more vegetables .

Those two things will solve the problem .

If you crave bread , you need more b vitamins .

I recommend electrolytes , a good powder and b vitamins and or nutritional yeast .

You can get them in tablets .

Very important just to make this transition smooth so you have no problems .

Sea salt , don’t be afraid to add more sea salt because you’re gonna need more salt .

You’re gonna dump more fluid on this program and so you have to replace it .

The best time to exercise is when you’re fasting , so in the morning .

It’s actually you get better benefits .

Realize that it could take longer to adapt , but the way that you know you’re in hardcore ketosis is that you crave nothing .

You’re not even hungry anymore .

That’s when you know it’s really working better than any other test .

This should give you , the next layer of information or knowledge you need to know.
