Example of Grams and Macros... may look like this

I am a VISUAL person ... so these kind people was able to help me SEE emoticon

James = you shared: 65 to 70 gms of water has a volume of 65 to 70 millimeters. An oz. is about 28 grams. 65 grams is a little over 2 oz. A cup of water has 8 oz. A cup of liquid will fill about 4 popsicles. My reply: you are a mathematical genius skilled with simplicity :-)

You also shared: Sunshine, a Keto day looks something like this:
Macros with calories added in:
- 20 grams carbs (80 cals)
- 50 grams protein (200 cals)
- 210 grams fat (1890 cals) (min. of 120 fat grams per Holly)
make for a total of 2170 cals ... so yes I did mean that much fat. Everyone probably differs a little, but this is a good target.
Thank you James for that important information especially for visual learners like me.

you also shared: Looking at that soup: (Progresso light pot roast soup)
- 10 grams carbs
- 7 grams protein
- 2 grams fat
You can see that there isn't enough fat compared to the other things, and that carbs rather than being the smallest one, is the largest one. *sigh* .... sorry to bear the bad news.

My reply: Sharing and obtaining knowledge I don't think is bad news... it makes us smarter to make Wiser choices moving forward.

Holly = thank you for your advice on the popsicle molds :-) thanks for the heads up and thank you for sharing information about soups and lite soup and how it is not keto as we want FULL fat.
