    If your DEX scan shows up BF that would be the perfect time to start with the monitor - do you have them often? Being able to see trhe change in BF over time would be awesome

    I came across this blog tonight. I thought it was interesting to see how the blood ketone monitor worked for her. But she didn't seem to do it for very long

    I did the blood ketone test last Monday. I was not in ketosis. I am hoping this Monday I find something different especially since the stix are not real accurate.

    Chris- are you testing once a week?

    P- I have been reading some articles about the tie between BS and ketosis. Do you have a simple breakdown for the connection?

    If this is true would a simple BS test give an indication of ketosis? Its so frustrating that ketostix don't work for me

    well I have read from several sources that when the BS lowers, the ketosis becomes more prominent..I think.. yes it is frustrating.

    Dr Ede had higher ketone numbers with lower blood sugar, but she was only able to get the lower BS by cutting protein and calories. Worth it?

    jewelry party I ate too much (primal food), spent too much on jewelry and signed up to host a party. I must be insane, but the jewelry was awesome.

    Ugh. Hungover (8oz red wine) and I have a slight cold. I was up all night tossing and turning and ended up on the couch. Nightmares of jewelry party hosting and dollar signs. I used up my clean day reward money for the next 3-4 months. I ate fruit, yogurt dip,cheese and salami. All very processed stuff that you get in party platters at the big box stores. Not sure what my carbs were. I will try to estimate on MFP later. We shall call this a refeed.

    Wt. 225.1 same
    FBS 96 (yesterday 88)
    ketones small (yesterday moderate)

    Now off to the gym for my Saturday ass kicking.
