A Breakdown Of The Fat/protein/carb Ratio For A Ketogenic Diet

When on the ketogenic diet, one of the most important things you’ll have to pay attention to is your macronutrient breakdown. This means you’ll be getting a certain portion of your calories form carbohydrates (a very small portion) at 5%, a larger portion of calories from protein (35%), and the largest number of calories from fats (65%). There are many online sites that can help you figure out how many calories you need on a daily basis, based on your height, weight, measurements, age, gender and level of activity. From there, you can also use online calculators to help you figure out the proper breakdown, in grams, for each macronutrient percentage you’ll be eating. You’ll multiply your total daily calories by each percentage to get the grams of each macronutrient that you’ll need. For example, if you need 1200 calories per day, and your carbohydrates are 5% of that total, then multiply 1200 by 5% to get the number of grams of carbohydrates you’ll be allowed to eat each day. In this case, 5% of 1200 calories is 60 calories. You then divide the calories by the grams per unit of carb, protein or fat. Carbohydrates and proteins both have 4 calories per gram and fats have Continue reading >>

    So as i'm laying here typing this i'm experiencing insane hot flashes. I especially notice this after I eat any substanstial calories, My feet are sweating and normally i'm fairly cold, so this is weird to me.
    What concerns me though is that it comes in waves and rushes. like hot flashes, it doesn't feel healthy...
    Alot of people share this experience, i've been learning, but no one really seems to understand why.
    So I guess i'm wondering, is anyone else experiencing this? alot of people get colder, ahh. It just makes no sense. >.<

    This is pure speculation, but could you just be feeling "normal" hot?
    I find I'm really sensitive to warmth now. Those highs and crashes of eating carbs made me REALLY cold all the time.
    Now that I'm on keto if the heater is on too high I have to step outside for a bit. Before keto I would eat a huge sugary meal and then want to put on a sweater after cuz I felt that cold, tired, shaky feeling after carb crash.
