Nilagang Baka

Dinner last night is Nilagang Baka. This is a perfect Filipino keto dish minus the potatoes. High fat and moderate protein from the beef and low carb from the pechay. The beef broth with its saltiness helps in balancing our electrolytes by helping in water retention. When eating low carb, you lose a lot of water which explains huge weight loss during early part of keto journey and frequent urination. So eating salty is not bad after all and actually encouraged in Keto along making sure your intake of potassium and magnesium are enough. This is what you have to keep yourself conscious about when in keto as low magnesium and potassium can cause low energy, cramps, palpitations among other symptoms.
