Don't get excited -- it's nothing shocking -- it's just that i don't enjoy 90% chocolate! :-) Anything over 72% tastes like bitter fat to me -- not chocolate. To be honest, my favorite is the sugar-free Valor bar with cocoa nibs. But 90% was the only thing in the house, so i stuck it in my bag and am having it for "afters" with a cup of decaf.
I'm on the road again -- stopped for the night in Muskogee, OK on my way to Texas (got a late start). After having a higher-carb day yesterday, i'm happy to be showing a "small" reading on the ketone strips. ...Or maybe the carb-counts from MyFitnessPal were unreasonably high? When I tallied up all the vegetables in the veal scaloppine (served over spaghetti squash) it came out shockingly high.
One of the interesting points of view that came out on the Low Carb Cruise last year was from Eric Westman --- he doesn't believe in subtracting fiber to get "net carbs." He thinks we should count them all, and i tend to agree. When you hear authorities claim that "non-starchy vegetable carbs don't count" you open the door to people eating TONS of squash or turnips or other such things, not losing weight, and then saying LC doesn't work. LC DOES work -- but it's possible to do it wrong.
LC can be done wrong. ;-)
LC with LOTS of ground almond baked goods is highly questionable.
LC with lots of non-starchy vegetables is not zero-carb, no matter what the Jaminets think.
LC with too much alcohol means you're using another fuel, not the fat and ketones you want to be using.
People can eat so much vegetation, it's no longer LC. Yesterday i did just that. Today I had a little coconut, a little onion, a little capers and pickles, and a little lettuce (with my chicken, ground beef, mayo and cheese). This morning the keto-strip was no-trace, and this evening i'm back where i should be.
It's been a good day, despite finishing it with the "wrong" chocolate. ;-)
