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.
I'm sick with a cold, and nothing seems to work the way it should when you're sick. Just being sick can raise your blood glucose, even if you are eating right or even fasting. I did fast yesterday, but I was also taking cold medicine that may have been sweetened. Anyway, my weight and my blood glucose did not drop like they usually do when I fast. Oh, well. I still get to eat today, while I am dying on the couch. I hate being sick!

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.
