Not Ketosis But Low Carb That Works For Me
Ok. I have been following the BPD for a while. By "follow" I mean I do my best to follow the green side of the BPD. I lost some body fat super quick and then gained it all back after about a month. I think the reason for this is I was fasting and then I would fall off the wagon later that day and eat huge meals. The found that the whole fasting thing does not work for me. I would also be so tired after work that I would just fall asleep on the couch around 7pm
I have found a system that works for me and maybe it can work for you too. I have been doing this for 1.5 months and I am never hungry, I have energy all day, NO CRASH, body fat went down 4% and I have lost 10lbs.
I eat about 5 times a day. Every 2.5 to 3.5 hours in between every meal.
Goals for EVERY meal
25 grams of protein
15-20 grams of Carb
7-11 grams of Fat
It is difficult to do at times but it is working so I do it.

Total Calories for my typical day are 1250-1500 but I am not hungry at all. It is actually a lot of food. I always carry a protein bar as a replacement if I don't have time for a "meal"
One of the mental things I have to deal with is labeling my meals as Breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner.. really they are all the same and totally interchangeable.
I hope this helps some ladies.. there are many options to change things around as far a foods go. It is a lot to carry around. I have a large lunch pack and I make sure to have ice packs in there.
I work from 6:30-3pm everyday and I go to school full time in the evenings a few days a week. I have to carry all my food for the day.
