    You can't "go keto" for a single meal. It takes days to get into ketosis and a little longer to be completely fat adapted, it's a way of life, not a dinner. You're counting calories instead of carbs, and it's the carbs that raise blood sugars. Rice and cake will both be carb-laden and thus spike your blood glucose.

    If you're on insulin you probably should know this or you'd inject wrong... Unless you're on basal only? Mixed fixed dose? One moment you're on insulin, then diet controlled... What is it? Because if you are injecting without knowing what you're doing... I mean, if you have a carb free meal and inject/bolus for that, that could get very dangerous, very fast.

    Not calling you out, just really concerned for your well-being.

    Four strips of bacon, two eggs fried in the bacon drippings, a skillet full of spinach also sauted in the drippings. For supper I had a taco salad (spicy ground beef, onion, tomato, cheddar cheese, avocado, refried beans [a few spoonfuls], and lettuce) with a dried corn tortilla. Washed down with half a glass of beer. Then a half of an apple for an evening snack.

    1 bowl of porridge. I can handle it as long as it is traditional rolled oats and only 30g. With this virus thingy and working at home I'll be having my sausage, bacon, tomato and egg for lunch.

    Salmon and salad for lunch.

    Dinner was a keto chicken curry with spinach and broccoli.

    Beer was only 3 carbs per bottle.

    Looks like the numbers are coming down.

    I've noticed alot of you eat bacon. I was told bacon is processed meat and not good same with salami
