A day in the life eating on Wahls Nutritional Ketosis

Meals today, I haven’t been speaking much about what I eat as of late. Today, I had my first meal at 1 pm after working out this morning and doing my physio exercises. Remember that I am on Wahls Paleo Plus which is Nutritional Ketosis, which requires fasting. I eat twice a day with an eight hour eating window. Meaning that my last meal was 6 pm tonight, my first meal today was 1 pm. I will eat around 12 noon tomorrow, giving me a 16 hour fast over night, with a shorter fast between the two meals during the eight hour eating window. I know this sounds unnatural, but it has a funny way of becoming natural once you begin. For one thing, a side effect is lack of hunger. I have had no problem waiting in between meals.

Meal 1:

A smoothie consisting of, 2 cups spinach, 1 cup blueberries, 1/2 avocado, 1 tbsp almond butter, small carrot, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, dash of sea salt, sprinkle of cinnamon, 3/4 cup full fat coconut milk and water.

Four strips of Bacon

Supplements: Alpha Lipoic Acid, Balanced Complex Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, High Potency B Compound, Magnesium and Calcium, Digestive Enzyme,

Meal 2:

Free Range Chicken Thigh

Sweet Potato fries (1/2 a small to medium potato) dredged in melted coconut oil with New Orleans spice. The spices are oregano, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cayenne.

2 cups steamed broccoli with ghee

1/2 cup of Kombucca tea

Supplements: Alpha Lipoic Acid and a Digestive Enzyme

 

Most days I am on target. I should be eating some type of algae or seaweed daily. I gave away my Hawaiian Spiralina powder, need the capsules, can’t eat it. Next month, I’ll buy the capsuled powder. I should be eating some type of organ meat three times a week, can’t eat that either. I have taken desiccated liver pills. I’ll replenish those at the beginning of next month too (money’s an issue for me). Each day, I need to consume 6 cups veggies in the form of 2 cups greens, 2 cups colored and 2 cups sulpher. Today I did achieve that with a 1/2 cup extra colored (the sweet potato). 6 oz meat, the chicken thigh and four strips bacon. I need one serving fermented food, that was the 1/2 cup Kombucca tea and the 1 tbsp nutritional yeast. With my foods I need either 1 full can full fat coconut milk or 4 to 5 tbsp coconut oil. I got the combination between my smoothie and the coconut oil used on the potato fries.

Everyday, I do my best, I am never perfect. Tomorrow is another day!

 

Bonne Sante

 

Picture is of a cheat sheet I keep on my fridge of the Wahls basic information for the three eating levels. Again, does not take the place of the book, which is absolutely necessary as a teaching and then a reference guide. It is very inexpensive to purchase. Either go to Dr. Wahls website or Amazon to purchase online.
