Just read an amazing post from Mind Body Green:
The post follows a day in the life of Dr Ethan Weiss a preventative cardiologist who follows a Keto diet. It’s interesting to see how he has moulded the diet based on his mediacl training
- Dr Weiss starts the day with a black coffee (sounds like Intermittent Fasting!)
- Lunch is normally a salad with lettuce and chopped vegetables with added Lupini Beans which are high in protein and fibre with zero net carbs. This is important as most people on a Keto diet don’t get enough fibre. Added protein (and crunch) comes from macadamia nuts and walnuts with salmon or tofu added. Dressing is olive oil and dairy like cheese is only added occasionally. This is interesting that he avoids too much dairy.
- Dinner consists of roasted non-starchy vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus), with added tofu or fish for protein (sometimes chicken).
- The Dr ends the day with a glass of dry red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot are all low in carbs)
