It’s been requested (quite a few times) that I share a typical day in my keto life. While I strongly encourage you to find what works for you, this is what works for me. 

keto

Calories – usually about 2,000 but I always eat back my exercise calories (because I am in maintenance mode). So this could go up to 2,400 or more.

Macros – I try to hit about 20% protein, 7% carbs and 73% fat. Again, this could change depending on the day. On training days, I typically (but not alwayseat a few more grams of carbs and protein to help with recovery.

Liquids  I always drink a gallon of water. I also will drink a cup of tea, kombucha or sparkling water when the mood strikes me.

Food – A typical eating schedule for me starts from 5am – 8pm.

5am – Bullet Proof Coffee made with 16oz coffee + 1 tbspn MCT Oil + 1 tbspn Heavy Whipping Cream
Between 10:30-1pm – Meal One …. usually I eat eggs, bacon, greens and cheese for this meal
3pm – Afternoon tea or hot cocoa …. I’ll add some sort of fat source (MCT Oil, butter or coconut oil) if I need it
6:30pm – Meal Two …. this usually includes meat, greens and fat
7:30-8pm – Dessert …. typically a fat bomb

I really want to stress again that you should eat for your goals and body. I listen to my body and eat when I am hungry. If I don’t hit my macros perfectly, I’m okay with it!

Go forth and keto on.
