Today is a Feast Day!
For me, that means a ketogenic diet - high fat, moderate protein and very low carb. Each day, I will weigh in, check my fasting blood glucose, find out if I will feast or fast that day, update my chart and post it here on the big blog. I'm posting it to motivate myself not to give up, and if I think that anyone is looking at this, it will help to keep me accountable.
Well, I fasted yesterday. All I had was several glasses of water, one cup of coffee and two cups of beef broth. And the bathroom scale says that I GAINED 2.6 pounds. I did notice yesterday that I was not in the bathroom very often, and when I woke up this morning I was bloated and didn't feel the need to urinate. I did anyway, but it was very little.
So, the explanation is that, for some unknown reason, I am retaining 2.6 pounds of fluid. I am going to a family party later today, and I really wanted to feel slim. Oh, well. Onward and downward!
30 DAYS DOWN AND 61 DAYS TO GO
24 FEAST DAYS AND 7 FAST DAYS - FASTING 23% OF THE DAYS
7.4 POUNDS GONE AND 10.6 POUNDS TO GO
41% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 34% OF THE DAYS
AVERAGE WEIGHT SO FAR - 148.7 AVERAGE BLOOD GLUCOSE SO FAR - 88
I made a few charts to track my progress. The orange lines are my goals. The blue lines are my actual results. The last chart is a little heat map to show at a glance how often I have actually had to fast to achieve the results I am after.
