Draglist's Journal, 16 Jan 19

Woke at 229.6, down 5.0 after a fasting day that included a lot of water movement. Going out for lunch with friends today but doing Bonefish Grill again so the choices will be great! UPDATE: Went to get blood work done. I shoveled snow for about 20 minutes to get my car out. Good exercise in a fasted state. Got my work and came home. Did a ketone and glucose test and was only .2 mm of ketones and 104 for blood glucose! Bogus! After fasting all day yesterday. I must have dumped some glucose out of the liver while I was working. Out for a nice seafood lunch in a little more than an hour. Read a compelling blog post last night that will have me lowering my fat intake as much as possible. I will be trying low carb AND low fat for the rest of the month. Here is that article: http://www.tuitnutrition.com/2019/01/personal-fat-threshold.html

UPDATE: Back from a nice 3-hour lunch with the pictured food and four glasses of red wine. Blood glucose: 82. Happy about that but frankly I'm lost with how my body works! Made it to 228.4 later in the day.

Enjoy your lunch, :) !!!Bill you mention those glucose and ketone numbers alot, What is a good reading?, I am just familiar with Cholesteral LOL, because thats what I have to get down.

Yep after shoveling snow, those numbers should have been better ... especially the BS. I will look into that blog. Thanks! I tried doing low carb and low fat when I was doing Weight Watchers and it was very hard to sustain.

Thank you for sharing the link for that article. Figuring it all out takes some time for some of us and I can use all the information I can. Looking forward to your next food photo. 😋

Just scanned through the blog ... it was long and detailed. I have just increased my carbs a bit. Now wondering if I shouldn't have. LOL!

Hope cutting down fat works out great for you! Enjoy the day!

I am definitely seeing my morning BS is HIGHER when I am no 'sold food fasting' the day before (but high protein due to the protein drinks), than when I have eaten normally the day before.

You always have an interesting blog.When you write your book one day I'm buying it.

Thanks, Pam, Mom, Becca, Nikeit, Adef, and Murph! Had a nice lunch as shown in the photo. Pam, glucose should be between 70-99 and ketones should be between .5 and 2.0 millimolar. I read every one of my weigh in posts from 2012-2018 last week, and I was very successful with lower fat and higher carbs in the past. Going to try to limit both (and that means largely carnivore). Luck to all of us! Thanks, Murph! I may just do that one of these days...
