    Pebs, you are becoming a scientist!

    My Mom is using some anti-disorder tracking program to track her food, no calories, just write everything down and answer questions like did you binge. Anyway, she said there was advice to put ice in a baggie and hold it in your hand when you feel a binge coming on. Worth a shot I suppose. I may try it.

    Oh, that is an interesting idea. My go to is L-glutamine powder under the tongue. Unfortunately it turns out to be cancer's second favorite food according to Dr. Seyfreid. Now I am scared to take it. Which is stupid because my binges are thousands of calories in sugar. Which is worse?

    Anyway to do a search to see if there is an alternative to L-glutamine powder that wouldn't help the cancer grow?

    I think that short term, you are probably better off stopping the binges. But suspect that you are going to have to eventually figure out what it is you are missing and fulfill the need, be it nutrition or physical or emotional or whatever. I really think you are getting closer and closer, but in the mean time, the binges cannot be good for you emotionally or physically so I say do what you can to stop it in its tracks.

    Yup. Well today's FF is over. My husband made pork loin and asparagus and caramelized onions. By the time all was said and done, I ate to the level of my new macros.

    I think I'll just eat the new macros tomorrow. My body wants food!

    Being that I don't have cancer, l-glutamine shouldn't be a problem. You get l-glutamine in meat too. It is an illogical fear. Better to use it to stop the binge.

    I wonder if the fact that l-glutamine works tells me that i need more protein on days after workouts. This protein balance will be interesting.

    I gave up on the Fat Fast. I messed up 2 /4 days. Last night was all primal however. Probably too much protein.

    WT 228.2 A new low, by .2 lbs.
    BF% -.2 as well
    FBS 109 (too high, too much protein?)
    Ketostix - trace

    New Macros based on new info.

    1600 cals
    60g protein (Base amt. allowing up to 75 on gym days)
    20g carb (gross)
    142g fat (80%)

    I was looking at your glucose readings and it made me curious about the accuracy of those things. I know Wikipedia isn't a perfect source of information, but I found this interesting

    Accuracy of glucose meters is a common topic of clinical concern. Blood glucose meters must meet accuracy standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). According to ISO 15197 Blood glucose meters must provide results that are within 20% of a laboratory standard 95% of the time (for concentrations about 75 mg/dL, absolute levels are used for lower concentrations). However, a variety of factors can affect the accuracy of a test. Factors affecting accuracy of various meters include calibration of meter, ambient temperature, pressure use to wipe off strip (if applicable), size and quality of blood sample, high levels of certain substances (such as ascorbic acid) in blood, hematocrit, dirt on meter, humidity, and aging of test strips.
    Glucose meter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It seems that acorbic acid (Vitamin C) can affect meter readings. If you are taking a large dose of Vit C, that might explain your 100+ readings. Do you have any calibrating fluid for your meter?
