I've been "Paleo/Primal" for a number of years now and have benefited by the reduction of a few health issues. But I've never been very concerned when I have too much dairy (Primal) or I sneak bread on the weekends. As a result, I'm still a little too pudgy and not all of my modest health issues have cleared up.
I'd like to be a little more strict with the level of carbs (I no longer sneak bread) I eat and, in fact, cycle in and out of ketosis. (to see if ketosis helps with my A.D.D. brain fog, for one thing.)
Strangely, I find the main problem in doing so is that I don't eat according to menus or meal planning. (A.D.D. issue!) And who really wants to weigh and measure everything and look up every item to make sure I don't casually overdo it on the carbs and protein!?
So... my question is, what's the most PRACTIAL way for low-carbers or keto people to stay on track with their macros? If it IS weighing, measuring or menu-planning with recipes that have the macro info, then I guess I'll have to do it for now. But I'd like the input of others who have walked the walk.
Please, let's not get into whether Paleo "2.0" really is low carb or keto. I'm fine with the conclusion that it is, at least, occasionally low-carb and keto.
