I follow a pretty low carb diet (50-100g a day). Sometimes this makes it challenging to reach my required amount of calories. Bacon seems like an obvious answer b/c it contains 0 crabs and is pretty calorie dense (in 1/2 pound increments).
1.) Why do most people preach against bacon?
2.) Is turkey bacon any better?
Thanks, James Keeton
PS: While we're at it.... what are some other good low carb foods?
I started loosing weight 8 weeks ago. Started at 200 and am now at 186. I maintain around 3K and have been eating around 2500 a day. I'm trying to keep my carbs at around 100g and am looking for foods to help me do this. I generally eat 10-14oz of chicken a day and 8oz of beef. I've been trying out tuna lately... Not the biggest fan. I also eat 4 eggs a day, 1-2 cups of milk, 60-120g of whey, random veggies, and about 94-100g of cheese.
I don't drink, and I eat out about once a week.
I train 4 days a week. Currently on week 49 of 5/3/1. I've also been doing some sprints and sled dragging. The occasional barbell complex or circuit are thrown in every once and a while.
