The cool thing about sticking to a low-carb or Keto diet as opposed to eating like a bird and counting calories is that it doesn’t really require much effort as a Southerner.
You just have to be mindful of things like the sides and snacks you are eating, the junk food in your diet, the high carbs foods, etc. If you enjoy BBQ, it is easy to transition into a low-carb lifestyle because you can still enjoy eating everything from juicy baby back ribs to steaks to burgers to whole chickens to brisket to pulled pork to hot dogs to shrimp. Cook it in bulk on the grill on the weekends.
Tonight we went with Baby Back Ribs and grilled vegetable skewers. If you plan on eating ribs on a low-carb diet, you will usually want to go with rub or some type of sugar free BBQ sauce. It’s not going to do you any good to eat a rack of ribs on a low-carb diet smothered in brown sugar.
Go eat a huge rack of juicy baby back ribs with grilled vegetables. I promise you with all that fat and volume you will feel full. You will be amazed at how easy it is to hit your calorie goals.
My daily routine usually goes something like this:
- Cup of coffee
- Low-Carb Snack (Often a Cheese Stick, Celery & Peanut Butter, Chicharones or Pecans)
- Solid breakfast (Bacon & Eggs, Sausage & Eggs, Ground Sausage & Eggs, Bologna & Cheddar Cheese or Sausage & Queso Fresco)
- Low-Carb Snack (Peel-a-Pound Soup, Boiled Cabbage or Boiled Turnips)
- Supper (One Of These Combinations That Fit My Macros)
- Low-Carb Snack (Usually a Cheese Stick Before Bed)
That’s what I call a productive day.
In order to track what you are consuming, you will need a smartphone app like MyFitnessPal and a food scale. We will deal with that in a separate post.
