  • Day 42- May 31, 2013

    Sorry that I didn't post all day yesterday, I was caught up and busy. I also ate out with my GF and her son at a local rib restaurant. I decided to not worry too much about my WOE last night and indulged on some Beef and Pork Ribs.

    Measurements: 6:00AM


    Weight: 203.8
    Ketones: 2.2
    Glucose: 104


    I didn't measure my body today since my workout schedule has changed to MWF. I will be measuring myself on Sundays now. I also don't know why my weight increased dramatically and my blood sugar was so high. It might be that I have began eating some raspberries. I'm also thinking that since I changed my workout regiment, it may be causing some additional stress to my body. My resistance training program has changed from once a week to three times a week.


    Workout: 6:30 am

    Squat: 44 x 6, 88 x 5, 110 x 5, 132 x 5, 154 x 4, 143 x 4, 132 x 4
    Bench: 44 x 8, 88 x 8, 110 x 7, 132 x 6, 148 x 5, 137.5 x 7
    Deadlifts: 88 x 8, 110 x 5, 132 x 5, 176 x 5, 198 x 5

    My form is becoming more consistent and I'm getting use to the movements.

    Lunch: 1:30 pm

    150 g Organic Chicken Thigh, 154 g Wild Pacific Salmon, 138 g Cauliflower, 15 g Parsley, .3 Tbsp GF Butter, 1 Tbsp MCT Oil and EVCO, 2 Tbsp Olive Oil, 92 g Avocado, 2 oz Mixed Baby Greens, 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

    Calories:1,227
    Fats:96
    Protein:75
    Carbs:15.8

    Dinner:8:30 pm

    Like I said previously, I ate a a rib joint and indulged on a pretty hefty 8 inch short rib, which was partially shared. Pretty darn good and worth it. I also had 6 baby back ribs. I did not have any of the sides, which consisted of corn bread, mac n cheese, and the fries. But the sides did look very tempting. I came home and wasn't sure if I ate enough fat, so I immediately ate a table spoon of EVOO and EVCO. After I ran some estimates of what I ate and realized eating the EVOO and EVCO was unnecessary as the short rib and baby backs had plenty of fat in them. So the following numbers are estimates only and are probably pretty inaccurate. I figured I'll probably be knocked out of ketosis and will have to adapt for the next 3-6 days.


    1 Tbsp EVOO and EVCO, 8 oz Beef Short Rib, 7 oz Baby Back Ribs

    Calories:1,977
    Fats:173
    Protein:76
    Carbs:29


    Totals:

    Calories:3,218

    Fats: 270 (75.5%)
    Protein: 152 (18.9%)
    Carbs: 45 (5.6%)

    After running my numbers, I realized my ratios were still in line with a ketogenic WOE.

    • Day 43 - June 1, 2013



      Measurements: 6:00 AM


      Weight: 202.4
      Ketones: 4.3
      Glucose: 77


      I'm shocked that at all of the above measurements, since I indulged last night. I was expecting to be knocked out of ketosis and my weight would have gone up.

        • Hi dob!
          Good to see you are still committed to your goal. I was up some when I got back home; I am all over the place with work and it is time to get on track again. I am at 222 and was at 220 when I left almost a month ago! I miss coming on here as it helps motivate me and provides a focus. I have days when I don't feel so great and it is when I have too many carbs. I will start tracking again tomorrow. I have tried to convince my friends of this way of eating but they just made pie!!!! Nice that you are able to have a trainer and get to the gym.

          • I forgot to mention that my travels took me to northern Saskatchewan and I came home with Caribou meat. I want to add more wild meats and fish to my diet,

            • Where has everyone gone? I am feeling lost and alone! Hope to log in and see someone soon. This is my go to site and I am missing the connection. I am refocusing and am back into my IF. Not logging food and know I need to track better but am so busy. The weight is coming off again so that motivates me. I was reading some keto blogs last night but it made me hungry! I want to make some yummy recipes as it helps me to stay on track as well. I'll check in tomorrow.

                Hi Marcie, hope all is well. I decided to stop my experiment as I was losing too much of my LBM. I increased my protein intake and am cycling in some carbs, while lifting more weights. I can say that I did feel much better in ketosis, but I want to make sure what little I have of my muscle mass stays in tack, so thus refocusing my energy for now. I will eventually come back to ketosis as I think it is the way to go for long term health.

                You're doing great. You're half way to your goal weight and you will hit it.

                • Good to know you are still around. I was worried you had disappeared, many do, I did for almost a year. You are knowledgeable, not judgmental and very supportive. Thanks with all your help so far. Good luck with your changes and I hope you find your groove.

                  I was fasting today but too hungry so came home and had some leftover chicken. I'm pushing myself work-wise and am tired so I don't think stress helps when you try to fast. I feel absolutely horrible when I go back to heavy carbs so I keep that in the back of my mind when I feel so good and am tempted by snacks. So many yummy fruits out now that I may have to up my good carbs to 50 g some days so I can enjoy them. I have no major health issues (that I know of) so am just eating primal/low carb as it just makes sense and I lose weight when I follow it!
