    Question about Keto


    Can I do a Ketogenic diet with Cashews, Steak, Chicken, Whey Protein, Tuna, Flax Oil, and Peanut Butter as my only sources of food.

    All of that looks like it is on the list of good foods I would go lite on the PB because of the carbs.. How are you going to handle your carb up days?

    uh... yeah, you CAN... but damn bro, that's some bland-ass crap by like, day 10 IMO... I just hate tuna (canned) with a passion at this point, but eh... where's the cheeses, the fatty meats that make keto so mo'****in' fulfilling? I say have fun with it, I'm tired of kicking my own ass when it comes to dieting, and that's one of the best things about keto.

    Good point Biggs, I'll definitely add some sliced cheese for variety. As far as the carb up goes, I plan on using oatmeal, would this be fine for my source of carbs ? BTW, I mix my tuna w/lots of lemon and some parsley, is this still fine for the diet ?

    You can also put eggs in your tuna (boiled and then greated or sliced)
    and put some fattening mayo

    all protein and fats

    Well that'll be fine for day two or whatever later hours in your carb up but you want some high GI stuff in the first 6 hours or so to refill your glycogen stores. Then low GI is a good idea for the remaining time.

    Thanx Draven, I didn't know about the High G.I. carbs. I'll give it a shot after my finals which end May 21

    I use high GI carbs for first 12 hours, then switch to low GI next morning.

    Bump on Biggs comments.

    Also where are those all important fiberous green veggies ?
    And almonds would be better than cashews IMO.

    Don't make keto so boring........eat damn it !
