The Keto Diaries — Numbers Obsession


I told myself when I started my low carb/keto journey that I wouldn’t be too concerned about the damned numbers and macros… and now I am.


I’m at the point where maybe I should just live off of air. I’m eating all this delicious low carb food, but still netting at least 35-40 carbs/day.

I feel like my weight loss has plateaued… or maybe my body’s just used to it now.

I wanted to take it easier this morning on my stomach, and I know coffee can really mess you up.

I had a smoothie:

  • 6 frozen strawberries — low glycemic, low sugar
  • like 7 or 8 frozen blue berries — low glycemic, low sugar
  • unsweetened almond milk… approx one cup
  • 1 tbsp of stevia.

That put me up to 18 net carbs.

Then, for lunch, I was going to just broth it, but I was so hungry and I figured that because I was hungry I probably needed to eat something substantial and my tummy was over it’s weirdness last night.

I had my left over stuffed bell peppers (I only like ate one… and the rest of the filling):

  • 3 bell peppers
  • 1 lb of ground turkey
  • 5 good sized baby bella mushrooms
  • two green onions
  • salt/pepper/garlic to taste
  • 5 or six grape tomatoes
  • sour cream.. like 2 tbsp
  • and parm 1/2 cup.

According to my thingy, I’m at like 30 net carbs.

I told myself I wasn’t going to obsess… but now I am.

I feel like I just need to go home and just cook and eat plain ground turkey cooked in coconut oil with bacon and egg and a lump of sharp cheddar…

Cutting out sugar is no small feat.

But on the plus side, I’m generally staying around 1700 calories/day — except for when I eat an entire bag of pork rinds and puke it up later.

I don’t know how to put that into my app counter thingy…
