Vegan Ketogenic Day of Eating | All Meals + Supplements

TRANSCRIPT:

It’s been a while since I did one of these, and people seem to respond well to them.

With the cultish level of popularity surrounding carnivore and keto right now, I decided to walk folks through my current vegan ketogenic diet. Yes, VEGAN ketogenic diet. High-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein, 0% bacon, 100% VEGAN!

But, before I get started, I just want to remind you all to subscribe to my channel and press the bell button for notifications. Also, don’t forget to like and share this video.

YouTube does NOT promote most of my content, so your support is much-needed to keep this channel going and growing. I mean, there’s no point in me creating videos if barely anyone is going to watch them.

A lot of time goes into these, especially the research-heavy content, so if you enjoy my videos, and want to see them continue, please take a moment to show your support.

Also, if you’d like to show financial support for my efforts, I’ve linked to my Patreon, Subscribestar, Amazon Associates, True Nutrition affiliate, various eBooks, and more below.

I see next to nothing from advertising revenue, as even my most innocuous content is mostly demonetized by Google, so even a tiny pledge of $1-a-month via Patreon (for those who have the means of course) can add up quick, and means a whole lot!

Thank you for your support, time and consideration. Now, on with the video!

As this was a typical weekday, I woke up around 7 AM, and slammed back 16 ounces of black coffee, and then prepared for what was ahead of me.

I also took 1/4 teaspoon of a liquid B-12 product by Now Foods that contains 41,667% of my daily value in B-12.

As my long-time viewers may know, I’ve been following a 16:8 intermittent fasting protocol since 2015, regardless of my dietary approach. Ergo, the timing of my first meal is dependent on when I had started my last meal the night before. So, in this case, my first meal wasn’t until 2 PM.

I had about 213 grams of broccoli florets, 2 Gardein “Ultimate Beefless Burgers”, with one brazil nut for selenium, all of which I sautéed in 2 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil. I seasoned all of that to taste with salt and mirchi powder, which is an Indian term for chilli, rated at 65,000 Scoville Units, which is more than twice as hot as cayenne. I sprinkled this meal with 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds, which I’ve ground myself in a coffee grinder.

As for supplements, I took a vegan multivitamin / multimineral, a vegan vitamin D3, a vegan vitamin K2, a vegan digestive enzyme blend, and a vegan EPA & DHA product with this meal.

I am not saying you’ll need all of these, but I take them to be safe. I even took these sorts of supplements when I was vegetarian, despite consuming eggs and dairy back then. I just like to be cautious. I got one body, and I have to live in it for the rest of my life!

The digestive enzyme blend, specifically, helps me digest the fat content of this meal. As I’ve mentioned before, I do not have a gallbladder, it was surgically-removed when I was 17.

Anyway, I topped this meal off with 10 ounces of green tea. The next time that I consumed any calories was after my workout.

At around 7:30 PM, I prepared for the gym.

My pre-workout drink consisted of 1 scoop of electrolytes, 1,000 mg of vitamin C, 1/4 teaspoon of beta-alanine, 5 grams of creatine monohydrate, 1 tablespoon of beetroot powder, and 1 3/4 teaspoons of malic acid. And I sweetened this concoction with 1/8 of a teaspoon of stevia powder which is more than strong enough!

All of those supplements aid in performance and/or facilitating (or maintaining) a sweet, sweet pump despite being so low-carb. And, like many lifters, I do love a good muscle pump!

After completing my workout, I slammed back a custom 70% pea and 30% rice protein blend from True Nutrition, a site that I’ve linked in the description. I mixed 2 scoops of that protein blend with 5 grams of leucine, and 5 grams of creatine monohydrate, into 20 ounces of filtered water. And I sipped that during my walk home, which is about 10 minutes from door-to-door.

If you’re interested, you can use my affiliate code “VEGNUT5” at True Nutrition to receive at least 5% off of your purchase.

True Nutrition features an awesome custom protein blend generator, which allows you to mix any protein sources that you desire, in pretty much any ratio that you desire, such as my aforementioned 70% pea and 30% rice blend. They also allow you to add custom flavors, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, etc. For example, I tend to add a turmeric boost to my blends.

And it’s bulk-priced, so you aren’t burning a hole in your wallet.

Anyhow, once I was home, I prepared my final meal, and had a shower while it was cooking in the oven.

That final meal consisted of 213 grams of broccoli florets and 443 grams of extra-firm tofu cooked in 2 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and was also seasoned with salt and mirchi powder.

Supplement-wise, I had another vegan digestive enzyme with that meal, as I did with my first meal, for the same reason.

And that’s all she wrote! After that I wound down a bit with some social media and played a little guitar, and I was in bed before midnight.

Now, that meal plan is low-calorie, or about 1,800 calories to be precise. At the moment I want to dial-in another 10 lbs, give or take, re-assess, and then design a new meal plan for my next goal.

Macro-wise, this meal plan provides me with about 113 grams of fat, about 32 grams of carbs (after subtracting fiber), and about 136 grams of protein. And it keeps me very satiated despite the lower calorie content.

Anyway, do leave your thoughts and comments below, and let me know if you have any questions.
