Thanks ladies for the additional info. Evidently I have to do a lot more research. Whatever I choose will have to be livable for DH also because I'm not about to start preparing two different sets of meals.

On a positive note, in the past month I've cut out all extra sugars (desserts and such) have increased my daily activity a bit, and as of today have dropped 8 pounds.

For me, this is all about getting my A1C and glucose numbers down because I'm pre-diabetic and I don't want it to get any worse.

We had the Miracle Noodles "rice" tonight, and were underwhelmed. The texture was like tapioca pudding. Not buying that version again.

We're having our monthly potluck after church tomorrow, and I'm bringing the BaconCheeseburgerCasserole we tried last week. We just LOVED it, and I am not at all afraid to bring it to a non-Keto function.

Ya that Bacon cheeseburger recipe was truly great!!

Does the following recipe fit into the Keto plan or is the protein too high? I made this two weeks ago, it was sensational.

It looks awesome! I'm going to try it! It's not the protein in a single meal that counts. It's what you eat total each day. And it's a percentage, not a specific number. I'm away from my books and computer now, so I can't give you the suggested percentages, but as I recall, protein is about 25% or less. But for the DAY not per meal. Rae will know, so I hope she pops in to share the suggested percentages.

Let me know how you like it, we thought it was wonderful...both of us. :)

It should be fine. I frequently eat a whole chicken breast at a meal. In fact, I sometimes struggle to get enough protein in.

On the other hand, I have zero issues getting enough carbs in LMAO (because that's what I'm trying to limit :) )

Different keto boards will give you different percentages for fat/protein/carb macros but the general rule of thumb is to eat until satiated. It's pretty hard to overeat protein and fat so listen to your body/mind. If you feel full, stop eating. I usually eat about 4-8 ounces of protein for each meal but not all protein comes from meat (fish, eggs, cheese, nuts, yogurt). Carbs are another story, they don't tell your body/mind you are full so its very easy to overeat those. Here is a general guideline of my macros but it's not steadfast, some days I eat more protein and some days I eat less fat. I find if I don't eat enough fat I feel hungry and start craving a bit so I need to keep my fat high. I eat two meals a day (lunch and dinner) and rarely want to eat in the evening but sometimes will have a snack if I've not eaten much during the day. My daily calories range from 950-1300 but generally are around 1100-1200, rarely hitting 1500. I've only got another 10 lbs to lose so will have to consume a few more calories to maintain and not lose anymore. After the first 25 lbs or so (since mid Feb) I am now losing about 1-2 lbs a week. My sodium macro is my minimum but generally consume higher than that b/c I load up my electrolyte drinks and often consume a cup of chicken broth which is high in sodium.
