How Many Carbs?
Hello dear bulletproofers!
I've recently started the diet and read through several posts on the forum, but I'm not quite sure if what I'm doing is considered the right way to achieve ketosis. I'm 23, 6'1" and 190lbs. I don't have a tummy or otherwise body fat, but I also don't look like Schwarzenegger
My current layout for the two weeks I've been into LCHF is as follows:
I usually consume around 2300kcal, 115g protein, 110g carbs (80g net carbs, 50/50 starch&sugar), 130g fat. Except on my carb refeed, where I get 75g protein, 160g carbs (135g net carbs) and 63g fat.
The carb foods I usually consume are white long grain rice, natto, berries, apple, banana, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, romaine, kale, spinach, carrots, yams, etc. For fat I just go for ghee, butter, avocado and olives. Protein is mainly local grass fed beef and salmon/sardines/anchovies.
My question is whether the amounts of each macro is a good decisions for an overall healthy diet, following the bulletproof diet. I hear Dave talk about how ketosis is the state to be in and I've read other people's experiences which were mostly positive, but I'm just not quite understanding whether a carb refeed is necessary in my case (I think I heard Dave say that if you consume over 100g net carbs you don't need a carb refeed) and if it is, I'm just wondering if these numbers will hold up? I would rather not come down with adrenal fatigue within 3-6 months.
I'm just starting out on this path and these past two weeks I've felt really good with this drastic change, any help and suggestions for this newbie would be very appreciated.
