Step 2 is to increase the number of calories that your body burns off. A reader asked if having a cup of ground beef a day would put me over my protein amount when tracking my macros.

Ground Beef and Butter Fast™ Test
The first priority is fat and protein! While all the time, I am still thinking of vegetables as a priority on my plate. I spoke to a few body builders and power lifters who do the Keto diet too! You wanna know what a day on Keto looks like for them?
I decided to do a test with this new way of thinking. Little or no veggies and really up my fat intake. Way more than I was consuming. Why was this so scary to me? Because for many years we have been told fat is so bad for you. My test was ground beef and butter for a few days in a row.
Then I would serve myself about a cup of ground beef in a bowl and top it with about 3 tablespoons of butter. I love the salted KerryGold butter myself but any real butter will do. I ate just enough to fill me up.
My ground beef meal was swimming in butter. The first day I was down a whole pound in one day! I was ecstatic to lose a whole pound overnight! A reader asked if having a cup of ground beef a day would put me over my protein amount when tracking my macros. The answer was no. I decided to capture my macro numbers in a screenshot and share them here with you.
Yesterday, I had my 2 cups coffee with butter and cream in the morning, ground beef with butter for lunch and dinner. Then I ate about 4 crunchy pork rinds. I drank plenty of water and took my supplements. I am down another 1. This is what my tracking looks like. The next day I lost another pound overnight! I broke my weight loss stall! I still consumed my morning coffee with butter of course. Then I basically ate two meals a day that consisted of ground beef and butter.
Talk about easy meals. I might even do the egg fast again too. Both fasts are similar. As long as you eat protein with fats and very little to no carbs, you will lose weight. If you find yourself in a weight loss stall on the Ketogenic diet, you might try something similar.
I personally believe the substitute sugars, even Keto approved ones, might cause you to stall at some point. I also think dairy may have stalled me a bit too. Gosh, I love cheese. I suggest you do different tests of your own. This is the only way you will figure out what is making you stall in your weight loss efforts.
I never once felt as though I was deprived when I ate ground beef with butter. I also only ate twice in a day.
I had coffee with butter in the morning 2 cups , and lunch and dinner were both ground beef with butter. Now when I look at my diet, I see more fat intake with moderate protein. When you think about your diet, what do you see?

Bacon, Eggs, Avocado, and lots of butter! Join our Private Facebook Group for this challenge: Magnesium, Potassium and make sure to up your salt intake too! I heard this advice over and over again from all the Keto experts at KetoCon too. I found your page through Pinterest, because the picture of the meat, cream cheese? Do you actually have that? I was glad I found this, because it is so nice to have an arsenal of techniques for keto!
How has this affected your overall health blood work, etc? What supplements do you take besides magnesium, potassium, and salt? This is very interesting. I have been stalled for weeks and have been trying to figure out what is going on. I usually fast until after I workout, but then eat 3 meals. I also usually eat pretty close to my 25 net carbs everyday, I find it helps with volume.
Do others find they need to cut out the carbs completely? If you suffer from leg cramps the quickest way to get rid of them is to soak in a bathtub with a cup of epsom salts as your body absorbs magnesium quicker through your skin than in a supplement of buy a spray, this stops the leg cramps immediately.
How do I find you on Facebook? Hi Ronni, We have a facebook group and a page! I started to think that was it for my weight loss. I am so happy I found this pin. I was starting to gain weight again. I started to eat the beef with butter for lunch every day for five days and lost 4 pounds. I look amazing I feel amazing and I just have to thank you for your amazing advice. Anyone know if coconut like a fresh, real coconut, not dried or sweetened is ok on the keto diet?
I love it, and it tastes like a treat! I did this fast for 4 days and lost 4. After the 4 days I made sure to track my food and fat intake so I could on the plan and figure out what caused me to stall in the first place.
Most of my protein I ate after the stall had the same amount of fat in either butter or oils. Doubt, you just breakfast the coffe? Then lunch and dinner meat with butter? Hello, i was interested in doing this. On the second day I added a small amount of grilled onion to the beef but very little because of the carb count. I also second the issues with keto approved sweeteners. I made some keto mini cheesecakes last weekend and my weight went up I only ate 2 in 2 days, everything else was normal keto for me Only time I have issues with major stalling or reversals is when I use sweeteners.
Not going to make that mistake again! I did this and I lost weight. Thank you for sharing this. I wanna do this again but I kinda wanna try something other than ground beef.
Something simple and quick. Again thank you so much for sharing. Thank you for you post and all this information. I am still gathering as much info as I can. This was a great article.
I had a question about the app you use. So my abs0lute favorites are the frozen omelets. But all the muffins are amazing especially the double chocolate ones and I really like the waffles or french toast with an egg on top. Because eggs are part of the power fuel foods, I combine them with the breakfast! I am such a carb girl. So the pastas and the frozen quesadillas or the melts are my favorite. I want real food, even if the bars make me full. That being said, the bars are great for being on the run!
Several times they have kept me from picking up a drive-thru meal or something when I had one stashed in my purse. I love all the pastas! Some of the frozen meals are really nice as well because they have fresh veggies, which I love.
Here are my faves:. Any of the pizzas some are frozen, some not. The hardest part for me is choosing between snack and dessert. So here are my favorites from this category as a whole. You can make your own choice between savory and sweet! But take this to heart: Looking at that list, does it sound like a diet? The key, really, is portion control and ingredients.
I hope this helps if you are considering Nutrisystem. Definitely pick your own foods and go for the frozen meals as well because so many of them are good! As a member of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program, I am receiving free membership to the program in exchange for blog posts.
