  • Is this considered low carb?

    I'm just wondering, when I eat lots of meat or eggs, is that considered low carb or are there still carbs in meat? I'm trying to distinguish it because I thought that everything you eat has carbohydrates in it ...

    I am not one of the more educated on this site but meat is low carb. have you tried fitday.com? plug some food in there and it will give you a macronutrient breakdown.

        Eggs have like 1 gram of carbs per egg. Not a big deal. Meat does not have carbs in it.
        Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

                Can you brown your meat?

                Try googling "maillard reaction". That's why.

                But in short, no, not much.

                  Jeff: 317g carbs as your pictures shows is a really really high number. Try to get it down to under 150 atleast.

                    Jeff, your carbs do seem a bit high for that day. At your age, weight and gender you do seem to be burning your fuel and not gaining weight. I suspect the high carbs for this day are due to the pizza. The pizza is also probably why you felt nauseated afterward....it was probably the sudden consumption of grains in the crust. Your other menus seem fine though.

                    Also, I suggest taking your fish oil and multivitamin with or right after breakfast. Fat soluble vitamins need the fat in foods to work properly and other supplements work better when taken with meals. Also, taking a multivitamin on an empty stomach can make you nauseous.

                      Zero carbs in both, eggs have a slight trace but not enough to worry about

                        300+ g of carbs per day is not low carb. Try to get that down to 150.

                          Technically there are residual trace carbs in meat. A true zero carb diet would be an elusive goal.

                            You can get a free account at www.fitday.com and put in any food, in any amount, and it will tell you how many carbs it has, along with protein and fat, plus everything you would see on a nutritional label.

                              Is anyone looking at Jeff's journal? Jeff is a trim teenager whose carb count for the day illustrated above was due to his eating pizza that day. I agree that 317g carb is too high but for a teenaged male who does not have to lose any weight and whose day to day eating is within suggested carb guidelines an occasional day of pizza (and subsequent high carbs) is not that big of a deal.
