monk Posted February 26, 2015 Report Share Posted February 26, 2015 So currently I'm trying an eat more to lose weight challenge and I'm having difficulty in doing so without having too much fat and carbs.I'm previously ketogenic and don't want to go above 60 carbs as carbs are very very bad for me. However because I have issues with my kidneys I can't go too high in fat either so I'm having problems trying to meet 1900, keep carbs low and fat not too high. Currently my diet looks like this:1900 calories 10% carbs40% fat60% proteinBreakfast2 large eggs3 strip uncured bacon2 oz sausageLunch:2 cups spinach leaves2 tbsp bacon chopped up1 egg3 oz chicken chopped up4 tbsp Balsamic vinaigrette Dinner ranges from home made stir fry, paleo chili, turkey, chicken or ham (crock pot cooked) or salmon. I usually have them with celery, onions, broccoli, asparagus or carrots. I try to stay away from carrots due to the carb count. This is my usual go to but I'm either not meeting 1900 calories or I'm over carb. I can't seem to get the ratio to work. Today I'll be having paleo chili (http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/235014/paleo-chili/) which has 15g carbs, 22.3g protein, 13.3g fat in it per cup but it ends up being too much fat and not enough protein. I'll end up having 30 carbs just in this if I have 2 cups of it. And at the end of the day today I'll have 1681 calories (need 1900), 48g carbs, 108g fat (need 87) and 120 protein (need 244). I was thinking about adding veggies but I'm afraid of the carb count. Any ideas anyone? Quote Level 1 Dwarf Half-Dragon Monk. Monk Apprentice.
