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 did better with my feasting yesterday, with BPC and cheese and salami for breakfast, tuna salad for lunch and lobster (yes, real lobster!) and Brussels sprouts for dinner. After dinner I whipped up some cream to add to pumpkin and spices for dessert. Even after eating all this, I somehow managed to lose a pound.
However, I am still sick. I thought I was getting better, but now I feel worse again with this stupid cold. And now Bill has it, too. Sorry, Sweetie!

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.
