Vegan Ketogenic Full Day of Eating (Getting Ready for Summer!)

#EcoAtkins #VeganKetogenic #DayOfEating #SummerCut #BeachBody

It’s been a while since I’ve done a day of eating video, and viewers have requested I do another one. So — here ya go! Food p0rn coming your way. Yes, I meant to say coming, that wasn’t a slip. I swear, with my mouth and brand of humor, you can’t take me anywhere.

Anyway, this is a ketogenic day of eating. On a non-training day.


My current calories and macros are set like so. Yes, this is a noticeable caloric deficit, as I want to lean down modestly for Summer.

Every Saturday I have a high-calorie re-feed starting around 4pm, which I’ve presented examples of in some previous videos, which I will link below for your convenience.

With that said, let’s dig right in!

I fast until about noon, sometimes a little later — depending on when I finish my last meal the night before. This is because I’ve been employing intermittent fasting for a couple years now. I love it!

I will only have coffee, tea and water during my daily fasting period.

At around noon, I have my first meal: 170 grams of Beyond Meat brand strips, with approx. 203 grams of whole leaf spinach. This is cooked in 1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and I add spices and salt to taste, and top it off with 1 tablespoon of freshly-ground flaxseeds. Lately, I’ve also been squirting on a bit of sriracha for a kick.

I got the idea from a 2013 well-controlled human study that showed when you combine an MCT oil, like coconut oil, with chilis, you achieve a 50% increase in diet-induced thermogenesis.

Just be advised that some populations might suffer a bit of gastrointestinal distress from the oil and pepper combination, so proceed with caution. I definitely do when I overdo it, and when that happens — I lay off the spices for a bit.

And I use this organic, buttery-flavored coconut oil by Nutiva. Which is vegan, and uses a combination of sunflower, coconut and mint to mimic the flavor profile of butter. It actually tastes like buttered-popcorn. It’s quite fantastic! Best vegan butter replacement I’ve ever tried. I’ve linked it below, if you’re interested. Highly-recommended!

After that meal, I don’t eat again until around 3pm.

But, I do have this tasty and spicy organic and fermented turmeric and ginger drink mix by SoTru around 1-2pm, between my meals. It is sweetened with a bit of stevia, and contains a 1,125mg blend of turmeric and ginger per scoop.

And if you’re interested, I’ve linked that product below.

Research demonstrates that turmeric exhibits antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antioxidant, antiseptic, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, nephroprotective, radioprotective, and digestive benefits.

And ginger is full of antioxidants! Research demonstrates that ginger exhibits anti-inflammatory, antinausea, anticarcinogenic, heart-protective and disease-preventive benefits.

So, I feel it is a worthwhile addition to everyone’s daily intake simply for the myriad health benefits.

At about 3pm, I enjoy 4 of my low-carb peanut butter cookies, a recipe I presented in my last video: I’ve linked it below for you to check out. I also have a single brazil nut for the selenium content, which is essential for my b@lls and sperm health.

A single brazil nut can provide your daily recommended intake for selenium.

I want to ensure I function like a fvcking machine! Fit, formidable and fantastic, baby!

My next meal falls around 6pm on rest days.

And it’s not much of a meal, just a scoop of a vegan protein blend in water with some creatine monohydrate. My protein blend consists of 50% soy isolate, 35% pea isolate and 15% rice concentrate. I customize this at True Nutrition, which I’ve linked in the description.

My final meal usually falls around 9-10pm on rest days.

It consists of 558 grams of extra-firm tofu and 250 grams of broccoli florets, cooked in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Like with my first meal, I add spices and salt to taste. And if my gut is cool with it, a drizzle of sriracha.

And that’s it.

Before I hit bed, I do have 1/2 teaspoon of organic cinnamon in water along with my bedtime supplements like zinc, GABA, cissus and glycine.

A body of research shows that cinnamon can lower fasting blood glucose AND improve insulin sensitivity which, logically, would work in a synergistic capacity with my diet given my weekly re-feeds. So, I feel it is a worthwhile addition to a cyclic ketogenic diet.

Plus, according to research, cinnamon appears to exhibit antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, cardioprotective, and neurological benefits.

And cinnamon just tastes nice.
