I planned 2 days.. i did 1
Yes i noticed my trigger to eat too..
I so enjoyed these snow days...i would not object to o ne monday
Yes even the modified FF triggered the deprivation woe is me I must eat response.
I barely made it through half a day before I went nuts. At least I kept my eating after that within macros.
Lower Protein Experiment Day 2
Macros 150/59/20 grams 1676 cals
Wt. 226.6 (same)
FBS 96 (Y 104) Finally in normal range.
Ketones small 15mg/dl (Y trace) 15mg/dl = .8 Mmol
4 clean hflc days
Felt great all day, even after my big gym workout. I have DOMS today due to heavy lifting. Zero urge to binge.
Neg: Dry mouth at night continues. I think I will test my BS at that time tonight.
***I am copying the same info into both this journal and the EMF thread. Too lazy to write it twice. Hope you all don't get bored.
Blood Glucose monitors.
My Mom had three. Two by One Touch (The mini and the smart). And one Walgreen's model that we bought on a trip to WI when she forgot her meter. Yesterday, I tested with both OT meters and got readings 5 points apart. Ugh, ssn679doc was right. (doc, I will be buying calibration fluid soon.)
I recoded both One Touch meters this morning and tested using both. They now agree with each other. I plan to use the "Smart" going forward because it has a log book and graphs. The mini will be my back up.
***I am now in normal FBS range which makes me happy, but it took 4 days to get there after my last binge. There's a lesson for me.
EDIT: I set up the "Smart" to track BS, weight, & ketones. I can also input exercise, macros and notes about wellness and illness. This should be a useful device for this experiment.

Hey P, is the dry mouth during the night or in the evening? I am wondering because if I have sinus issues I tend to then breath through my mouth, which gives me dry mouth and sometimes even a bit of a scratchy throat. And I don't necessarily have to have a cold or even think that I have sinus issues. If I stay up too late and do a lot of yawning before I get in bed that makes my eyes water and gives me a bit of a stuffy nose, and then the dry mouth. Just a thought.
