in/out of ketosis question
 
I've been doing low carb for the second time in my life, this time starting on 7/9/13. I've done pretty well, keeping carbs under 30 most days. my question is how many carbs will end up knocking me out of keto? I really want to go have some boneless wings and a beer tonight. if I stay under, say, 60 g of carb for this whole day, will I still be good? or will I go out of ketosis and have to start all over again? this won't be a full on cheat/carb overload, but higher than normal or that i'd usually like. I started out on 7/9 at around 255 and weigh slightly under 230 right now. it's been kind of slow going compared to the last time I did atkins/low carb in 2005.

Everyone has a different level that their body can tolerate, so we can't answer that for you.

Is there a reason you want the boneless wings, rather than traditional? Buffalo wings aren't breaded and are generally a better choice for a low carber.

yeah, but not a good reason

the boneless are just really damn good. I obviously wouldn't opt for the potato wedge accompaniment I would usually have.

Are you trying to lose weight?

It is not only excess carbs that will cause you to leave ketosis. Excess protein will do it, too.
