Keep it Keto Simple

Recipe: Baked chicken, Miracle Noodle tossed in a few tbsp of the chicken fat from the pan, and lightly seasoned with salt & pepper.

Meals on the ketogenic diet usually are not that complicated, and I typically eat some protein with a good concentration of fat. The discovery of Miracle Noodles has allowed me to eat low carbs and get some fiber into my diet. They also leave me room in other meals to eat more nutrient-dense foods, usually broccoli, asparagus, spinach, or something. And, of course, they are great if I get too close to my carb limit in foods I shouldn’t be eating.

I have probably said it before, but the easiest thing to do when trying to eat low-carb is to avoid anything that comes out of a box, has been processed, or is man-made in general. I usually eat with my protein some sort of whole food vegetable; things that steam, like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, or even Brussels sprouts. I typically pour olive oil, coconut oil, or butter over my veggies to get my fat calories in.

My macro goal is 5% carbs, 20% protein, and 75% fat. I know it sounds like a lot. But this diet has been around for a long time as a treatment for epilepsy and other conditions. My blood pressure has come down, my blood sugar is normalizing, and I’m losing weight. I couldn’t be more satisfied, literally.

Fat satiates hunger like nothing else. The low amount of carbs doesn’t spike blood sugar, allowing me to go longer between meals AND eat less, which is the fundamental contributor to my weight loss. It’s almost fail-proof.
