I understand my body much better for experimenting, and I have come to the conclusion that I hit on the right formula pretty early on, but had to question that.
That is focusing carb consumption on my evening meal to replenish glycogen stores. Also eating VLC for breakfast (very helpful for correcting my body clock issues). Lunch is moderate carb, eating plenty of saturated fat, and never snacking is ideal.
I do way, way better on glucose than fructose. And I eat a lot of vegetables as I have done for a couple of decades, and a lot of goat's/sheeps dairy.
I have hypermobile joints so my biomechanics are very inefficient. This has caused chronic fatigue in the past. Hence I can eat 100-150 g glucose a day and still go into ketosis. But reducing carbs to enhance my fat burning capability gives a huge boost to my energy levels as I can run on dual fuel and my ability to walk more quickly is particularly apparent. I will always appear unfit as a walker or runner even when I actually have good fitness levels. My lung capacity is currently 114% of that expected but I appear weak as I am slower than average. However, my low heart rate cf power output paints a truer picture of my fitness and is a useful measure.
Coconut oil has made a huge difference to my health as I have been pescatarian for about 24 years hence was surely deficient in medium chain fatty acids during that time. I haven't had a cold in 16 months or so - I am sure due to eating more medium chain fatty acids and having a stronger immune system due to decreased inflammation from avoiding inflammatory foods - also I notice that my colour vision is much sharper for eating coconut oil. Huge benefits.
