For those not in the very low carb, keto, zero carb, and carnivory clan, know that MOMO stands for “month of meat only”; meat for me meaning protein-fat whole foods. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, game, fish, shellfish, et al. I will also liberally consume broths made from what I can’t eat of these meals which provides additional nourishing collagen which is supposed to be good for human bones as well.
I have been pretty strictly keto since January 2018, but my weight has stayed around the same which is not a bad thing considering I enjoyed lots of delicious foods that have kept me in ketosis most of the time, with my blood glucose in a very good range.
Of course I expect to lose some weight, really hope I do, but it’s not the most important consideration. My ketones should be operating in peak form which, based on all I’ve read, means a cleanse almost as good as a water-only fast. I did a week long fast in May, and dropped about a pound a day, and kept off four pounds of fat.
I did a clean out of my refrigerators bottom freezer, and my small chest freezer, threw out old stuff, and catalogued the contents, without which I forget what’s at the bottom. I have more than enough protein-fat foods to last at least a couple months. I posted my lists so I can check off as I remove contents, and that reduces waste. One of the things I like best about keto or protein eating is not having the waste I always had with veggies that went bad before they could get used up. I really hate waste, but it was inevitable that far too much food went slimy and smelly to the garbage can. I still can enjoy a BLT salad, but not missing vegetables in general; a little lettuce, tomato, spinach has been the norm on keto, but for this month, no vegetable matter whatsoever.
I all for these N=1 self experiments, so we shall see how this one works out.
