What If These Macros Aren’t Right For Me?
Obviously 1500 calories isn’t going to be right for everyone, but I think this is a good middle ground that is easy to adjust depending where you need to be.
If you’re eating LESS than this, your calories are probably going to be adjusted in terms of fat.
Take some oils out and voila, your fat macros will be lower.
If you’re eating MORE than this, you’re likely going to adjust both protein and fat up.
This is easy, increase your protein serving sizes and add some extra fat via things like bullet proof coffee, homemade dressings, nuts/seeds, etc.
This is a great starting place that can be easily adjusted to work for you!
If you’re not even sure WHERE to start with macros, first start by figuring out your calorie intake based on your goals (there are lots of online calcs for this), then figure out what ratio of protein/fats/carbs is right for you.
I generally recommend a break down of around 70-75% fat, 20% protein, and 5% carbs as a starting point for keto and adjust from there.
Remember to ensure you’re getting lots of water and balancing your electrolytes through added salt/minerals when adjusting to keto to avoid the “keto flu!
I hope you love these keto meals as much as I do.
