  • SW 2/26/13 =274.8
    CW=269.4 up 1.2
    Sleep= 6:31 w/ 91% efficiency
    Urine Ketones= ever so slight change in color
    Blood Ketones= no data yet-sorry, will read the directions today and do one tomorrow, promise.
    Calories = 2659 clearly this is too many!
    Net Carbs = 30g/4%
    Fat= 254g/85%
    Protein= 68g/10%
    Steps = 6021

    So the percentages were spot on but numbers were way too high, and I have just given a perfect example of how not to do your macros! I just do not skip meals well. Mentally anyway, physically I was fine, which is an improvement. I had not planned to totally skip the lunch, but the World Quest Bowl took twice as long as we expected.

    I will take my measurements in a bit and record them for posterity in my MFP.

      • ok, so every measurement has either gone up or stayed the same.

        Scale Body Fat is 54.5% and using the calculator that was just added to the EMF thread, that was supposedly the closest to that person's DEX scan results it was 28.11% (Body Fat Calculator)

        I will report back here this afternoon if my bone scan (DEX) includes the BF%.

        I am, oddly, not discouraged with the results so far. I feel like I went off course enough that it was a less than complete experiment. And I really need to do the blood ketones. I think that will get and keep me on track.

        • I wouldn't beat yourself up too much.

          I can't remember what you are shooting for protein wise but the number you posted doesn't look bad. For NK I think its important to keep the protein & carb right so the only number that should change is the fat. If you have a heavy day then the fat% will increase & you may not lose scale weight but it shouldn't affect NK. I think that is the key - cheat on the fat & it will put you back only in terms of scale weight for a day, cheat on proteins or carbs & it will throw you out of NK, which will put you back up to a week as you get back into NK again. But what do I know - you're the one with the monitor LOL. I cant wait for you to find out what really happens.

          • Well the carbs are net, so the total number was 44g I think. I don't like the total over 35g. the protein was fine, I shoot for under 70g. I have read the directions and done the control for the monitor, so tomorrow when I weigh in I will do the NK test. I think I may do it every day when I am home and see what happens. The strips are expensive, but nothing compared to what it will cost me if I don't get this excess fat off!

            p.s. I am interested to see Dr. Ede's next post as she is supposed to tell us why Dr. Rosendale suggests not to test for ketones. mmm

              • yea, me too, I was a bit irritated when I weighed in this morning that I had not had a chance to read the directions and do the control test.

                  • Yeah. That's the problem with those strips. I'm going to start checking my FBS soon, so I'll have more data points, too

                    • SW 2/26/13 =274.8
                      CW=271 up .6 my feet and fingers are puffy today
                      Sleep= 6:12 w/ 96% efficiency -went to bed too late
                      Urine Ketones= ever so slight change in color
                      Blood Ketones= "LO"
                      FBS= 98
                      Calories = 1866
                      Net Carbs = 15g/3%
                      Fat= 178g/85%
                      Protein= 56g/12%
                      Steps = 8707

                      Well, as you can see according to the monitor the ketones were "LO" so none there. I was able to do the FBS from the same finger stick so I went ahead and did it too. I will keep up with it, the finger stick was so tiny I didn't even feel it.

                      I added the broth/bouillon/salt yesterday so I expected the slight up tick. Thinking I should wait to take it until I am actually in ketosis though.

                      • this morning my ketone read ERR-4..LOL I even used the calibration stuff to make sure it was working and it was. I am going to try and do the same stick when I test ketones.

                        Great percentages!! I have to agree that perhaps the broth/bouillon is more effective when in ketosis. However, Paula may have some info on this (inquiring minds want to know)

                        • Sodium - I start right back in at one cube after a binge. I don't usually drink it on binge days. Then by day two or three, I am back to two. It doesn't pay for me to stop entirely.

                            • Interesting results. Good looking macros from yesterday. Great efficiency on sleep, for the time you had there!

                              How do you feel?

                                I am getting back into ketosis within 2 days of a binge now. Every time you stop and restart the sodium, your body has to readjust to the level. My last binge day, I actually had one cube in the morning. So I went 2 days at 1 cube, then right back to 2.
