Mancat Monday--Disco's Diet
While we are still eating Young Again Zero Carb, we also eat some canned food--Instinctive and Fancy Feast Classic style (no veggies, no wheat gluten) and an occasional can of something else--Paul Newman's, Avoderm, Halo etc. And a little bit of raw RadCat, too.
Teri steered away from anything with fruits or veggie's in them, to avoid the carbs, but Jen at Young Again explained that wasn't the whole picture! She had Teri read off the protein and fat content on the varieties we had on the shelf...
She said, that could explain why Disco is STUCK! She said to stick with canned foods that have a protein to fat ratio of 2:1, because if it's less than that...guess what? The missing %age is...carbs! For example, pick canned foods that have 12% protein and 6% fat.
Here's a link to a easy to understand explanation and a way to calculate the carbs in canned cat food:
How to read a Cat Food Label and guess what...some of the canned foods we were eating were 18% carbs! We had some stuff on the shelf that was 8% protein and 2% fat! This education thing is kinda hard, but Teri's learning!
Teri learned something, and then read some more, and now she thinks Disco can Jump That Hump!
