Basic Oopsie Rolls

A Keto Staple! Oopsie rolls have been a favorite in the low carb community, and for good reason! They’re fluffy, light, thin “buns” made of eggs, cream cheese and some cream of tartar. Before getting started with this recipe, learn about egg carton labels, they’re important to decipher to know you’re buying a quality egg. Cream of tartar (or potassium hydrogen tartrate) is a leavening agent, meaning it helps batters rise. It’s similar to baking powder and baking soda; they’re all acidic and used commonly in baking to coax desserts to rise. It can be found in the herbs and spices section of a supermarket. If you don’t have cream of tartar, you can try baking soda or baking powder, or even substitute some vinegar to add acidity to the recipe. However, cream of tartar will prevent the oopsie rolls from deflating when cooling, adding to the “breadiness” of their texture. Give it a try! Oopsie Rolls Are Versatile! These oopsie rolls can be used in many different dishes ranging from sweet to savory. Try them as burger buns for your next BBQ or butter burger recipe. Or try some awesome homemade and low carb Eggs Benedict for breakfast! Add erythritol and vanilla to the Continue reading >>

    Most of the advice looks as if it's a "keto diet" is this an accurate guess? I was looking at it to lose a bit of weight for boxing. Only a few kilo mind I'm pretty light anyway. Worth doing? Anybody got any experience with them?

    It's not strictly a keto diet but yes, your body will be in ketosis for part of the day... The book mentions the ketogenic state and how to prolong it when you wake up but it doesn't help lose weight the same way a keto diet does. It doesn't necessarily help lose weight - more lose fat and gain muscle. You're still eating carbs, just at specific times after doing specific training... and a specific type of carb too haha. High GI, little sugar or fructose.
    Keto diets are just really low carb aren't they? If so, they're a good way to lose weight fast but you have to have really low carb. I think it's around <30g a day.

    I could be wrong but I always though Ketosis could not be slipped in and out of as you say? Taking 3 or more days of major carb depletion for the body to start passing Ketones.
    My understanding is that it is a mega low carb diet used mainly by physique athletes. By mega low we?re indeed talking bellow 30 g a day? far lower than what I take on board due to nuts, vegetables and fruits.
    You can by Keto sticks that you urinate on that indicate when the body is in a ketogenic state.

6 Super Quick Keto Lunch Ideas 3g Carbs Or Less

Look for keto meals on Instagram, Twitter, G+, Facebook or Pinterest and you’ll get bacon and eggs aplenty. But very few other options. For that reason, I have decided to compile 6 Super Quick Keto Lunch Ideas 3g Carbs or Less to make your life a little easier and less boring. A sustainable, healthy, keto lifestyle involves cooking with fresh ingredients and being a bit more inventive than average. Inevitably, it also means spending more time in the kitchen than one would like. Fine if you love it and have plenty of time in your hands. Not so good if you don’t. Keto dinners will always, inevitably, mean cooking a meal from scratch, or re-heating leftovers, or defrosting something made previously. But it doesn’t have to be that way for lunch as well. I know eggs and bacon don’t take much effort, but if you’re in a rush it will still be too time consuming. And if you’re at work, what do you eat? Bacon and eggs in the local caff, again? Or an expensive yet tiny tray of cheese and olives from the deli counter? Or meat and soggy veg from the canteen, again? It sounds like I’m an egg and bacon hater. But I definitely am not! I love both. However, I crave variety. Plus I don Continue reading >>

    My husband is currently making a chilli for us and I asked him to weigh the onions and peppers so I can calculate the carbs per portion. I am rather confused because the carb counter on tis site says there are 21.5g carb per 100g of onions but only 4.3g of carb per fresh medium onion. My husband weighed the onions as 350g which would mean by the first amount detailed above that we have 72.5g of carb in the onions alone? Am I reading this right or being a bit thick??
    PS I bought some Ketone strips off internet and after 12 days on this still nowhere near purple, more a pinky lilac??

  2. Kathryn

    Stephanie just use Tesco's website http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=267255992 and use that, or if the onions are pre-packaged use the label off that.
    Also don't worry about ketone sticks, they are notoriously inaccurate. I stopped using mine months ago

    Thanks again. Just checked and it seems somewhere in-between. Total of 7lb now after 12 days, so pleased with that.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

Checking If Your Ketogenic Diet Is Working

The problem or challenge with most diets is seeing their impact. You can change your lifestyle quite dramatically but have to wait weeks to see any tangible impact or benefits. Switching to a low carb high fat / ketogenic diet is not easy. However, unlike many diets it is relatively simple to check if your body is in ketosis ie. if the ketogenic diet is actually working. Sure, it won’t happen overnight, but you should be able to see results within 7 to 10 days. There has to be an upside to the carb withdrawal after all! In order to get into ketosis and stay there you need to reduce your carb intake quite dramatically. In my case I’m below 40g per day most days, though I’ve heard of some people needing to get below 20g before they get into ketosis. Bear in mind that the average Irish or American person is consuming several hundred grams of carbs per day. It doesn’t take much – bread, pasta, root vegetables and sugar are all source of carbs. The simplest way to check is to test your urine using a ketone urinalysis urine strip. You can easily get them on Amazon or elsewhere. The strips will simply check to see how high the ketone levels are in your urine and therefore tell y Continue reading >>

    I just called Boots in Cambridge for Ketone testing strips and was interrogated like a criminal. They wanted to know why I wanted them, and I said I was testing for ketones, and then further questioning, so Isaid I was on a diet. She abruptly said, "Okay, right..I'm sorry, we're not allowed to sell them. Goodbye," and hung up. :confused:
    What am I missing? :rolleyes: I thought they were easily available and didn't know I was trying to purchase some restricted item. I know they are really for diabetics, but didn't want to be dishonest or rather, didn't think I had to be dishonest to purchase them.
    Are there restrictions on their sale in the UK? (I hav only been here a few months) Maybe I can do without them, but I was curious to know if I am in ketosis.
    Now I feel stupid for calling, and like I called to ask for ganja (marijauana). :(
    Bye for now :wave:

    Boots refused to sell my boyfriend Ketostix (that's the brand name) when he admitted he wasn't a diabetic, & they refused to give a reason. :mad: From what I've heard there aren't official restrictions on them, so I'm assuming Boots are just fascists. I don't have my boyfriend's scruples, so I went to Superdrug & lied- I said they were for my mum!:rolleyes: - but they had run out.
    Finally we got them from a company called Pharmacy4U, which I'm sure has a website (try Pharmacy4U.co.uk). After all that, though, we never use them any more! Maybe I will once I'm on maintenance. So don't worry too much about them :)
    Take care, Daisy
