besides above the ground vegetables.
I couldnt live without tmaters and sugar pod peas, lettuce, and yellow beans.
Those are all above ground veggies. Dont tell me theres something rong with em.
I just looked those veggies up. This is based on either a cup of it, or 4 oz (100 grams, but let's call it 4 oz)
When I logged all my foods for the first few months, after I was in the groove I'd keep it around 25 net carbs a day, or 5 to 8 carbs a meal. I'm sure I'm still hanging around there. At first I thought that was crazy. NowI can't remember why I thought it would be hard. I had people on another forum say they did less than that and were very happy. Now I see what they mean.
If I were to eat something like bread, I'd go out of ketosis completely. It's not like when you skip a day or 2 of exercise, no biggie. It's like skipping exercise for 2 months. You have to be patient to get back in the groove. Like a couple days.
Thing is, you can't think you can have a meal with no net carbs, thinking you can double up on the next and God forbid, have a sweet potato. For insulin resistance you need to keep carbs steady. I'm pretty insulin sensitive now, but it doesn't take more than a couple of days of having too many net carbs at one particular time to raise morning readings.
Tomatoes: 1 cup sliced - 5 net carbs
Sugar snap peas: 4 oz - 6 net carbs
A head of Bibb lettuce - 3 net carbs
Yellow Beans : 4 oz - 5 net carbs
If I'm going to be having tomatoes, brussel sprouts, a couple cups of cabbage or the like and I was planning on another veg, I would choose avocado, mushroom, zoodles or spinach that are all very low net carbs. It's a balance, and not that difficult. Especially if you doctor them up with bacon.
Be careful when you say you "couldn't live without something"
