u/vampire_kitty · 27 pointsr/Paleo

I was doing strict paleo (as in the militantly strict version with the exception of the occasional butter pat for sautéing) for more time than not for about 5ish years before I started finding on r/progresspics that all the awesome results were happening from people eating a keto diet. In January I decided to combine the two.

The first thing I noticed was that ALL depression... obliterated. Within a few days or a week or so. I don't remember precisely as I didn't write it down, but it was pretty gawddamn amazing. But as for the foods...

At first I had a LOT of trouble getting in enough fats and increasing the coconut oil was just giving me the runs (and thusly I wasn't absorbing a lot of what I was eating) so I switched to using only butter as my cooking fat. That solved the runs (and was SOOOOO delicious!) I slowly started adding in some cheese, found I had no issue, so I started eating cheese anytime I was craving it (which was apparently a lot lol) - at which point I was completely blocked up for a couple weeks so that wasn't fun. I eventually found a balance of using butter, cheese and heavy whipping cream that finally allowed me to get all the crazy high fat content while still eating everything else strict paleo ingredients only.

And for a short time I was losing weight and changing body composition but then it just sorta... stopped. For many months. I decided to do some more research and it seemed that removing dairy was going to be a strong part of the solution. Most folks were sharing anecdotes about how, while they weren't gaining weight eating dairy, they were not losing any, either. So I nixed the dairy except for the butter. The weight stayed the same, but my body composition changes resumed (by that I mean I was losing body fat per the tape measuring).

I recently re-did the keto calculator and found that despite my weight staying the same, my body fat had dropped enough that I needed to cut out an additional roughly 250 calories per day. So I started doing that and the weight began dropping again. Pro tip: as your body changes, keep going back to the keto calculator to make sure you are getting the right combination for whatever goals you are seeking. Mine, obviously, are to lose weight and look good as a secondary goal to improving my health. The mental health improvement was unexpected and, in fact, now my A#1 reason for continuing this diet plan.

These days I have maybe one or two ounces of cheese per week (lately often in the form of a cream cheese and egg pancake cooked in butter - sooo good). But I find that a combination of using butter or animal fats (I make bone broth in the crock pot, scrape the fat off after it cools and save it) for cooking and extra virgin olive oil for anytime I don't need heat (it oxidizes readily with heat - try not to cook with it. It's an amazing salad dressing by itself) and when I've not had enough fats for the day adding in however many portions of full fat canned coconut milk (Thai Kitchen brand is the tastiest one for straight drinking out of the can - I use a pet food lid to store the rest in the fridge until I'm ready to have more) is an excellent method of making up the difference in daily fat content. Plus the coconut milk is full of MCTs which help with the fat burning, neurological health, and various other benefits. I don't mess with coconut oil anymore except as a moisturizer if my hands are particularly dry (which is like... once every few months on a day I've done heavy cleaning around the house and the cleaning products dried me out).

Everyone likes to tout fiber and making sure you get x grams of it per day but there's a lot of research out there about how, honestly, it just doesn't really matter and, in fact, can cause more problems than it solves. I, personally, stopped worrying about any fiber and, in fact, I'm more regular and comfortable with bowel movements when I have hardly any fiber for the day than days where I have more. I don't mess around at ALL with adding chia seeds or flax or whatever other stuff everyone else does. Do your own research and experimentation with your body to see what works best for you.

I also don't do fat bombs at all. If you need a fat bomb, you're probably not eating the right cuts of meat or cooking with enough of the right kinds of fat. See above where I mention that I save animal fats for cooking and, really, just always add a tablespoon of butter to ANYthing that you are cooking and you'll be golden.

But seriously, don't forget your dark leafy greens. They are full of vitamins and minerals. Iceberg lettuce and crap like that is insufficient nutrition. Your body will be unhappy with you over time. Stick to low glycemic dark leafy greens (and omfg they taste SOOOO good heated in a fry pan with butter!) and brightly colored all the way through vegetables and berries to make sure you're getting lots of great vitamins. Blackberries and boysenberries tend to be the lowest carbs and blueberries are a good runner up. They taste excellent drenched in coconut milk. :)

Anyway, I could go on and on and on (and already have) but what works for ME is to personally avoid all the cheese-heavy and dairy-based recipes in r/ketorecipes and/or adapt them in such a fashion that I can sub in some coconut milk or turn it more paleo in some fashion. I avoid ALL dessert things in there because they are full of artificial sweeteners and other such things that are not paleo. If I REALLY need a dessert, I'll do the berries in coconut milk thing but, really, I just don't crave sweet things and haven't for a long time now. Keto really does solve that problem quite well when paired with a paleo diet as well.

Lastly, BE MINDFUL OF YOUR ELECTROLYTES. :D That's where I got screwed up the worst. Seriously, eat a teaspoon of salt and chase it with water if you are low on sodium when you first start. Make sure you are getting enough magnesium as well (especially if you are female - this helps with menstrual cramps but if you get leg cramps at all, which I never did, supposedly this helps as well) and using No Salt which is all potassium or "lite" salt (which I don't use but I'm told is roughly 50/50 potassium and sodium) are great to keep up on your electrolytes. Raw pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of magnesium and super inexpensive at Trader Joe's if there is one near you. Also, unless you are eating lots of seaweed (either in pill form or nori sheets for paleo/keto sushi without the rice or something like that) on the regular, make sure you are using iodized salt. I personally use iodized sea salt and sprinle No Salt on dishes as well.

All of the above suggestions are strict paleo friendly except for the dairy, of course. You'll find what works best for you. :) If you have more questions, feel free to inquire. I'm obviously FULL of ideas. I also have a hefty list of recipes as well if you are lacking in ideas.

u/JackDostoevsky · 9 pointsr/veganketo

i just do a spoonfull of iodized table salt and a spoonful of NoSalt (potassium chloride for my potassium needs) in a 1 liter bottle of water. i won't chug it but drink it throughout the day.

i used to supplement magnesium but i haven't felt a need to in a long while.

u/MasterZii · 5 pointsr/askscience

Okay... so why is a prescription required for 10meq of potassium, but I can just buy this from amazon?

If it's so dangerous, shouldn't I not be able to buy this online??? It's really confusing

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/fasting

Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor or specialist I'm just a reddit dude. I start taking electrolytes after 72hrs. I feel like supplements mess your stomach up since its empty so I'd say take salt and potassium salt ( Don't make your electrolyte water too concentrated or drink it too fast. RIP your stomach if you do.

u/wellwasherelf · 4 pointsr/fasting

Regular salt is fine. Pink Himalayan (or <insert current trend here>) salt isn't really different, nutrition wise. It has more trace elements in it but the concentration is so low that it hardly matters. I haven't fasted in a while, but when I do extended (7+ day) fasts, I use regular kosher salt for Sodium (because that's what I have laying around in my kitchen), and NoSalt for Potassium. You can buy Epsom Salt and take bath/foot bath with it for Magnesium (it absorbs through the skin) or I think there are pills you can buy.

Sodium/Potassium/Magnesium are the 3 main electrolytes to worry about. I've never bothered with supplementing Magnesium, but it really depends on the person. Just look up the RDI (daily intake) for those minerals and do like 1-1.5x that. I dissolve the salt+nosalt in water and shotgun it 2x/day to meet the daily intake value.

Also, please be careful with fasting if you have a preexisting ED. I'm not here to mother you or anything, but if you're already predisposed, it could push you into anorexia or worsen your bulimia. I'd try a Keto OMAD first, if it were me.

u/antarcticgecko · 3 pointsr/zerocarb

Sounds like you're getting enough sodium, it's the lack of potassium that will cause cramps. When I get stiff I'll spoon out 1/4 teaspoon of [NoSalt]( for 650mg of potassium. Take it with food, it upsets my stomach otherwise. Problem solved.

u/stealthhuckster · 3 pointsr/ketogains

How do you recommend getting the electrolytes? Is there a better/tastier option than just drinking lite salt or no salt and water?

u/Maggieneato · 3 pointsr/fasting

I purchased Himalayan pink salt on Amazon: but you can probably find it in a smaller quantity or a lower price in a grocery store. I went with the 2 lb. bag because I knew I'd be fasting regularly and occasionally for prolonged periods. As for the potassium, I bought NoSalt at my local Publix, but if you can't find it at a grocery store (where it will be cheaper), you can buy it on Amazon: (If you plan to buy it online, try to find a better price, though. 11 bucks is kinda crazy.)

I put 1 tsp of pink salt and a little less than 2 tsp of NoSalt in a liter of water and sip it throughout the day. If you drink it too fast, you may get the runs. I may drink more water afterward if I'm still thirsty, but I try not to drink more fresh water than salt water because I'm not very active and I don't want to risk flushing the electrolytes out of my system. Good luck!

u/drewd420 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Use 'no-salt', potassium based table salt substitute.

u/Kingcob7 · 3 pointsr/snakediet

Here is the potassium No Salt on amazon.

You absolutely must have potassium or you can suffer death causing heart arrhythmias.

u/Baconated_Kayos · 3 pointsr/keto

a very small amount (1/4 tsp) has 650mg of K. The perfect supplement, since you dont want to overdo K intake, but you DEFINITELY need it.

u/sharamall · 3 pointsr/pics

What's the best way to get a lot of potassium? Potassium supplements are only 3% daily value, and even high potassium foods don't have much potassium, and they come with a lot of calories.

I've found a potassium salt that is potassium rich but it's disgusting to just eat salt...

Do you have recommendations? Maybe lots of certain vegetables to avoid sugar calories from bananas?

u/maxdodge123 · 2 pointsr/fasting

No salt:


Just get it at the grocery store

Boom that's it.
Don't really need the vinegar

u/the_resident_skeptic · 2 pointsr/pics

Use this and lower your sodium intake too

It's potassium chloride

u/BlightPhoenix · 2 pointsr/keto

I find that juices tend to be high carb. Anything fruit based especially. I absolutely love v8 and all of the fruity varieties but I can't justify all of those carbs.

Lite salt/no salt ( ) could be a great help for potassium. I take a magnesium supplement every day as well, and add salt to almost everything I eat.

Best of luck!

u/MacSob · 2 pointsr/keto

Haha! It's "Braundo" and most definitely!

In case no one posted the links yet, this is what I ended up with for my electrolyte drink. Into a glass of water I pour in NuSalt, grind in some pink Hymalayan sea salt, and down it with a 250mg Magnesium pill. I do this first thing every morning, and combined with diet I get all of my electrolytes.




My wife can't do this, she uses this mix and it does work for her:


Hope this helps! KCKO!


u/therm0pyle · 2 pointsr/keto
  1. Maybe. Some people need supplements, others do not. One thing that people use for Potassium is No Salt ( )
  2. Up to you. Some people go hardcore keto and never cheat. Others build in cheat days and find that the cycling can help kick them out of a rut. You're always having some carb intake, so yes, it's the quantity that matters here; go over a certain amount and you'll kick yourself out of keto and back into running off carbs as fuel. It's not a big deal to cheat, but the more you cheat, the less time you spend in keto.
  3. Butter. Oil. Bacon. Sausage. Check out /r/ketorecipes if you're looking for specific recipes.
u/s3rvant · 2 pointsr/keto

I eat 2 meals a day with a light snack after work and another for dessert. I keep water near me at all times so it's always a short reach away.

For breakfast I go with 4 scrambled eggs (video) w/ No-Salt, 1 serving of sugar free jello, a glass of Stevia Kool-Aid and a generic multi-vitamin. Depending on the day's plans I might swap out the Kool-Aid for a whey protein drink instead. This leaves me very full and even with a workout around lunch time I won't feel hungry until at least 5pm.

My wife cooks supper, which will include various proteins, veggies, etc. as listed in OP's post above. Sometimes the meal plan will include more carbs than I prefer (such as a noodle dish) and she'll swap out the carbs in my portion for shirataki noodles instead. Last night I had a lovely baked spaghetti with meat sauce using these.

As for snacks I use pepperoni (fav is to nuke them so they're like crispy meat chips), sliced cheese, creamsicle jello, sugar free pudding (use half & half) and nuts (pistachios are my fav).

As for drive-thru, there's a Cook Out near me that still has their prices low (double cheeseburger for $1) and they'll gladly serve burgers without the bun and ketchup on the side. Also love Jimmy John's as they'll use a lettuce wrap instead of bread.

^^Edit: ^^# ^^of ^^eggs

u/SPEECHLESSaphasic · 2 pointsr/keto

As long as you're not having symptoms, you're fine. If you start getting keto-flu symptoms or leg cramps, then worry about increasing the amount you're getting, maybe start sprinkling some no-salt on your food.

u/hitogokoro · 2 pointsr/fatpeoplestories

Supplement your electrolytes and you will have 0 issues!

Get 100% of your daily value of Sodium from 1 cup of Bone Broth (or chicken broth).

In that, drop 1 teaspoon of NoSalt, which is just pure Potassium cholride powder. BAM! 100% daily value of Potassium.

Then, take 2 doses of Magnesium Glycinate Chelate and twice as much Coral Calcium if you want to get 100% of your Magnesium, and a 2-to-1 ratio of Magnesium to Calcium, which is preferred for bone calcium and blood calcium levels.

If you take your salty electrolyte shot everyday like I do, and adapt to ketosis at <25g carbs per day and not exceeding 150g protein, I bet you will turn Super Saiyan. LOL

u/Magnolia_o · 2 pointsr/loseit

you can buy salt substitutes that are supposed to taste like salt but have little or no sodium: [Nu-Salt] (, [No Salt] ( and [Morton] ( are ones i've seen but not tried

they are usually high in potassium so you may want to check with your doctor first

u/ketojeff · 2 pointsr/keto

I am currently training for a marathon this fall (running a half on July 24th), and have been strict keto for all of the training. Every now and then (like once or twice a month) I will feel pretty wiped out. I just cook up some broth with some added potassium (nosalt and it perks me right up.

My only suggestion is just to take it slow. Especially if you have not been keto'ing for longer than say 6 weeks.

u/scabertrain · 2 pointsr/keto

Be careful with MFP, although it's a great tool a lot of the users that upload nutritional information don't bother including the potassium levels. (or anything else, seriously people if you're going to add items to the MFP database do it right!!) You'd be surprised how many foods include potassium. When adding an item, google if it has potassium and add it to the nutritional info if there is.

Also, try No Salt to make up for some of your daily potassium requirements

u/dreiter · 2 pointsr/fasting

>it's called Nu-Salt not No Salt

He/she is talking about NoSalt. There is also Lite Salt.

u/Speak_Of_The_Devil · 1 pointr/todayilearned

Yep. There's also no sodium salt substitute.

u/pheen · 1 pointr/keto

Check out No Salt

u/Zanowin · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Have you considered "NoSalt Sodium-Free Salt Alternative"? Or something similar

u/gregsterb · 1 pointr/keto

I'm using this.
I think in the states this is the more common product though.

u/feelsmagical · 1 pointr/Paleo

I had same issues.

You need potassium: mix this with some water.

u/Countertop_guitar · 1 pointr/keto

Easiest way to get potassium is by shaking some No-Salt on your food.

u/Dead_before_dessert · 1 pointr/keto

Himalayan is good stuff but it has trace amounts of potassium at best. I have used [this](NoSalt Sodium-Free Salt Alternative, 11 Oz, and [this](Nu-Salt Substitute Shaker, 3 Ounce in the past. Its usually on the very bottom shelf in the salt section.

These are the recomended amounts of each per day

5000 mg of sodium

1000-4700mg of potassium

300 mg of magnesium

Your Himalayan is perfect for sodium, which is the big one. Same thing with the magnesium. Potassium needs really vary per person, but if you notice that you're feeling wonky, achy, or cramping up its a sign you're not getting enough and might want to try and track down the no/nu salt.

With regards to your recipe, you can use myfitnesspal (or whatever) to track them and make sure youre getting your recommended amounts. Beyond that it's really personal preference. The only caution about that is to make sure you're spreading it throughout the day, because too much, too.quick has have a really unfortunate diuretic effect.

u/v0idl0gic · 1 pointr/keto



(FYI, Mag Oxide with worthless (not bioavail), and Mag Citrate can cuase loose stools)

u/comrade_brony · 1 pointr/keto

I suggest eating more spinach (daily) and using NoSalt.

u/iluvsashasquash · 1 pointr/nutrition

I don't know the answer, but your question reminded me that there exists a salt substitute that's basically potassium:

u/halfgumption · 1 pointr/keto

0mg sodium, 650mg potassium per 1/4 tsp. I've never tried it so I can't vouch for the taste, but you may want to give it a whirl.

u/tge101 · 1 pointr/fitmeals

There's this stuff. I have it and don't notice any difference. I don't use it all the time and I don't use it in high quantities but I'll vouch for the taste.
