Most of my ilk start cutting fat for the summer, so they can hit the beaches and woo the bikini-clad goddesses. Being Scottish, my social calendar revolves instead around Hallowe’en, the one time of year I can strip off without being sectioned.
My daily calories go from 3000 to 2100, which comes exclusively from a 100g drop in fat. I’d prefer it came from carbs, but that isn’t an option. I was really struggling to get a few heavy metals and B-vitamins with my previous blend, so I decided to swap a base of water to one of full-fat milk. 2l provides 100g carbs, ~70g fat and ~50g protein, along with myriad micronutrients.
I absolutely detest psyllium though, it makes the whole thing into a goopy gel if I leave it for even a moment, reducing portability to nil. Are there any alternatives for fibre?
Final point (apart from the implicit request for feedback, criticism and general hole-poking), squash works kind of well. The thickness of the texture (pre-psyllium) is a little disquieting for the orangey flavour, but it improves taste without messing with my macros. Now to find something that doesn’t turn out to be chock-full of aspartame.
