Full Day of Eating Keto VLOG #07 | MAF pace, Ribeye, and Venn Diagrams!
Time to do another full day of eating
vlog, and I’m gonna start right now!
Hey guys. Welcome to A.D. Keto. My name is Aaron. This is the channel where you can
watch a weird dad work his way through
the ketogenic diet. I do some keto eating
vlogs, I do some keto product reviews, I
do some keto giveaways. If this is your
first time here, please consider
subscribing, and if you do, make sure
you’re on Notification Squad by clicking
the bell. All right, guys. So I’m about to go
for a run, here. I’m gonna get in a 10
and then when I get home, I’m planning on some steak and eggs. And hopefully , this
full day of eating will culminate in a
fire in our fire bowl that our kids can
burn some of their school papers in.
They’re kind of excidted about it. So off I go!
All right, so I just finished up my run.
Ten miles. I can’t help it, guys. Every
time I pass over the Thruway, I’ve got to
stop and take some slow-motion footage
of the cars going by. That’s just my
thing. Anyway, I kept it nice and slow.
Nice MAF pace. I get a lot of questions
and comments, both on YouTube and on
Instagram, about, “Man, I wish I could run
fast, you know? I’m so slow.” And how I
always reply is that slow is good. Fast
does not equal better. In fact, running
slowly is the best way to burn fat.
There’s this thing called Maffetone
pace, created by Dr. Phil Maffetone, and
it basically is — it’s also known as the
aerobic zone — it’s basically your heart
rate, and the heart rate at which fat is
most easily metabolized and burned. What you do is just take the number 180,
subtract your age. For me, I am 44, so my
number is 136. And that’s the rate — the
heart rate you should target when you
run if you’re interested in burning fat.
So I kept my pace in the mid 130s today.
I went out fasted, so I know that I
burned a lot of body fat today. But I
will leave a link in the description
about MAF pace. there’s a couple really
good articles and podcasts about it.
definitely check it out. And don’t try to
run fast. I mean you CAN if you want to,
but slow is much better for burning fat.
So it’s finally time for some steak and eggs.
Okay it’s time to make my fatty, fatty
coffee. This has some schmutz in it.
Two tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Oh God. Oh, there goes the lid. What have I
done? What…have I done?
A tablespoon of MCT oil, a tablespoon of
cream cheese. I love it it. Makes it
really frothy. Then I’m going to do a
tablespoon of Kerrygold butter. Whoa.
Someone was using this for… ME! What is
that, Caroline? It’s bread crumbs! Get out of here. In you go. And then I’m gonna do a teaspoon of Truvia, just
to sweeten it up a touch. Wild Mountain
Yeah, that’s right. Here we go.
Okay, so I’m gonna probe this guy, bake it
at 275 until it gets to an internal
temperature of about 127 degrees. Then
I’m gonna take it out on to my grill and
sear it in some ghee.
And I totally forgot to put pepper on this
ahead of time. Or salt.
The thing I love about this grill is
that it’s got this little sidecar, on
which I can put… say, a cast-iron skillet.
So just gonna sear up my steak and have
three eggs. Okay, so skillet is a’ smokin’. It’s good
and ready. I am going to start with…I’m gonna throw about a tablespoon of ghee in there.
Throw it right in there. I like to get
not ONLY each side, but I try to stand it
up on on edge as well, and try to get the
sides. Oh, it smells nice!
I’ve done both sides for about 30
seconds. I’m going to stand it on edge.
This is a method that Steve taught me.
You can watch a video of that right up
there. He was like, “Stand it on its side and
get all that fat rendered.”
I’m gonna flip it over do this last
little section here.
It’s gonna be a perfectly… perfectly
All right, let’s see how well these flip.
They’re like, connected. Look at that!
Not too bad. We’re gonna do it all at
once. You think I can? Probably not. But maybe? OH! Close. OK, wow.
I may have seared this a little too long
and/or let it cook a little bit too hot.
I’m normally I like a little bit more
pink on the inside than that, but this
still looks amazing. Mmm. Oh man, it’s so tender!
What?! No. It does look like a Muppet sneezed its brains out. So I’m gonna have some mid-
afternoon tea. I was sent, from TeaMi
Blends, a couple of teas last week that
I’ve been trying out. This guy is the Colon Tea, which… you know, any product with the word
COLON in it, you gotta…you gotta respect. This comes in little tea bags like this, and I
have been enjoying this flavor every
OTHER night, they say. This is not to be
had daily, as it can cause some… some
issues, I guess. This one has zero carbs
and zero protein. Zero fat, zero sodium, 20 calories per bag. THIS one is the Skinny
Blend, which is a little bit different. This you can have whenever, without any sort of
gastrointestinal consequences. This one
does have some carbs. Three carbs, but one
dietary fiber in one brewed teaspoon of
this. So I’m gonna make some of this, and
have it this afternoon. It does that it’s
recommended for adults only, also if I’m
taking prescription medication or are
pregnant or nursing (which I am NOT) consult
your health care provider
prior to using this product. So they sent
me also this little tumbler. It’s got… you
know, this part is where the hot tea
goes, and then you put it in here, carry it around. So I’m just gonna take some of this
TeaMi, about a teaspoon,
throw it in there, and I’m just gonna
brew some hot water straight out of my
Keurig. So here is my TeaMi tea. This is the
Skinny Blend. This is loose tea, and I was…when I first got this stuff, I was like,
“What?! If I have tea bags, why do I even…
why do I need this thing?” But the tea — if
you’re doing loose tea, you throw this in,
and it’ll basically keep you from
getting…you know, tea leaves in your
mouth. And then you just throw this on
here, and you’re good to go.
So thanks, TeaMi, for sending me this stuff.
They did give me a coupon code to give
to you guys if you decide to go and
purchase anything from them. And you use the code ADKETO15 at checkout.
You’ll get 15% off. So um…tea!
So I’m grating up… grating? Yeah, grating
some cauliflower. I don’t know why that word
seems so weird, but Sara is making a
casserole for dinner, and it looks pretty
epic. She’s already assembled most of it.
Here’s the sauce we’re gonna put in it.
It’s Alfredo. 2 grams of carbs per
serving, which is cool. Serving is 1/4 cup. I’m
gonna put cheese on your half. Oh! Awesome! I got some shredded chee. Yeah, this looks
pretty fatty. It’s actually not…it’s not
bad for the Weight Watchers crowd. It’s
also pretty good for the keto crowd. Ohh,
when those crowds get together. Sometimes
the crowds can overlap. This would be
right in the middle of our Venn Diagram. I
suppose so. If you’re into that kind of
thing. Venn diagrams? Yeah. I love them.
Make sure you get the garbage in the
background. This is riced cauliflower,
broccoli, ground turkey? Is that what that is? Yup, ground turkey. And chopped spinach. Chopped spinach,
and the Alfredo sauce. Yeah. And then we’re gonna throw some… Give me some cheese.
Sprinkle this generously on one half, here.
I’m not even measuring it. Hey,
all right. I’d say that’s probably…what?
A cup and and half? Uhh… I’d give that a cup. Serving size: 1/4 cup. A carb per quarter cup.
So yeah, 4 or 5 carbs in this cheese.
Worth it. If you eat that. If you eat half
of the casserole. Yeah, I plan on eating all of that. Uh, but we have kids. How long and what
temperature? It’s gonna… well, like a
standard casserole. It’s gonna go in at
350. I’m gonna say about… 25 minutes. OK.
Look how hideous our oven is. Really?! It’s not that bad. Oh, it’s… not good. Look at that bad boy.
It’s gonna look like a pizza commercial.
What’s next, Peter? All of this.
Gimme a chirp, big guy.
Well there you have it. Another full day
of eating in the books. It was a really
good day today. I got out for that long run first thing this
morning, came home, and that steak and
eggs just hit the spot. Oh, so good. I had
that tea a little later. I’m not a huge
tea guy, but I do like that green tea
from TeaMi Blends. And then the casserole that Sara made for dinner. I sort of…you
know, approximated what the macros were on that. We were just kind of winging it
with some of those ingredients. So… did
the best I could.
Here’s what my macros looked like today.
Twenty six hundred and forty calories. I
did get in that 10-miler this morning, so
I’m probably still at a slight caloric
deficit today. But 210 grams of fat, 163
grams of protein, and 19 grams of carbs.
There is my pie chart. Look how pretty
that is. So yeah, a really good day.
Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Not a whole lot going on.
I like weekends when there’s not… you
know, something scheduled every moment of
every day. Today was sort of just a
chilling out day, and it felt great. So
hope you enjoyed this video. Thank you so much for watching. Thank you so much for
subscribing. I hope you have a fantastic
day, and I will see you next time.
