    I am trying for the 5000mg level of sodium recommended for people doing NK. To get there I use two cubes of bouillon in addition to the sodium found in the food I eat.

    Last time I had a long run of days in NK, I became very lethargic. This seems to be helping.

    If I weren't doing VLC, I wouldn't bother with the extra sodium, because it wouldn't be necessary.

    PS I didn't think you were being a jerk.

    Most of the bouillons over here are reduced salt (ha ha) or they contain some type of sugar derivative (no good to me). The only one I found that might possibly be ok is a veg bouillon, which has Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein, Potato Starch & contains 900mg sodium. Are these ingredients primal? The organic version contains Yeast Extract, & Rice Flour, which I assume are definitely not (donít know if I want to eat yeast derivatives anyway). The only ingredient in both which seems to contain sodium is sea salt (first ingredient)

    PS: I love all your stories about the snow. If we get more than an inch here everything shuts down

    PPS: I didn't find any mention of MSG in any of them. Must be an american thing

    I am currently shooting for at least 2500, I don't add the salt I add to all my food in the MFP, so I know I am getting more. If I start to feel run down I will add a second cube. Thanks for keeping us informed Paula!

    Just putting down some observational notes...

    Today I am hungry and my body/mind is jonesing for something. I am dealing with some food ideation, but it is mixed with the rational thoughts that I do not want to blow it with 9 days clean.

    a) This often happens at the 4 day post period mark.

    b) This also happens when I begin seeing moderate ketones on the ketostix. Possibly heading into deeper ketosis?

    Don't worry. Tomorrow is weigh in so I have no intention to act on these desires, just reporting. I have eaten all of my calories for the day, but I am not adverse to eating more fat if necessary.

    Wt. 225.1 (-1.5 for the week, -22.5 since 1/1/13)
    FBS 88
    ketones moderate

    waist -1 inch

    This has been a very interesting week.
    Sodium Intake
    I upped my bouillon intake to 2 cubes (2000mg sodium) thereby bringing up my total sodium intake to 5000mg as recommended by Phinney and Volek in "The Art and Science of low carb living" I had a one lb bump up in weight as a result of the change, which I lost within a few days. The biggest change as a result of this was in my energy and mental clarity. I had an extremely successful work week. I kept up with grading and I had a lot of energy for teaching. My students think I am on speed.

    Lower Protein I feel fine on less than 65 grams of protein, but I am not seeing the lower FBS (under 80) numbers that one would expect on such a low protein and low carb plan. Maybe Dairy is keeping me out of deep ketosis? or artificial sweeteners? Not sure I want to go so austere with my program...

    Weight loss etc. Of course, I would like more than 1.5 lbs/wk, but I haven't seen this weight in nearly a year. I am feeling uber sexy this week (as opposed to just plain sexy ). I know that I need to be patient, but I am dying to get back to my lowest Primal weight of 210 lbs. I dream of hitting 199 before the next musical auditions in early May.

    My weekend is starting a little early with a 2 hr delay and short school day. Tonight I am going to a jewelry party and on Sunday we will be watching (not marching in) the parade. We decided to go to our favorite mexican place for lunch then watch the parade from there. It should be a fun weekend.
