Coconut Oil - Here's what you need to know about this amazing rejuvenation and healing oil
@Ray, I'm on page 909 (iPhone Kindle App) The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. I'm engrossed. Thanks for the recommendation.
@aubbob, I think so. My target is 1560 and was told by two people (Ray included) that I'm not eating enough calories. I'm eating a lot more than what I used to eat and it's hard to eat more for me without messing up my ratios. So today, I'm going to increase it to 1850.
Here are my totals from yesterday.
Calories - 1559
Fat - 130
Sodium - 2320 (need to increase)
Potassium - 1908 (need to increase)
Carbs - 42
Fiber - 25
Sugar - 8
Protein - 56
I think I'm close to being or am keto-adapted because I'm losing 1/2 lb a day now. According to the book referenced above, once you become keto-adapted, weight loss is about 2.5 a week average (if I remember correctly). And that's with "falling off the wagon Memorial Day Weekend.
This has been my progress since I started on 5/16:
The first week I lost 8lbs (5/16 to 5/22)
Weekend of 5/26 - after having a small portion of baked bean and a few beers - gained all the weight back.
5/26 to present - lost a total of 7lbs.
According to Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek (co-authors of the book above) they said becoming keto-adapted can happen in a few weeks or 6 depending on the person. Sometimes it's mind over matter, my mind set, I am.
Positive reinforcement for me, my shorts that used to fit tight around my waist are now hanging on me! Which is nice because I don't have that "indent" around my waist from the waist band any longer. Some may say it's just water loss. It's still loss as long as I don't stray from my healthy eating habits.
Time to go ride my stationary bike with 30 second to 1 minute intervals every 4 to 6 minutes. Total time 40 minutes on the bike.
