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 was not happy to have to fast two days in a row again. I was really, really happy to find that today is a feast day! I sometimes wish that I had made it a rule from the beginning that I would not have to fast two days in a row.
Yesterday, only broth and water all day. No artificial sweetener. This may become a new rule for me.
57 DAYS DOWN AND 34 DAYS TO GO
40 FEAST DAYS AND 18 FAST DAYS - FASTING 31% OF THE DAYS
11.8 POUNDS GONE AND 6.2 POUNDS TO GO
66% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 64% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 143.3 7-DAY AVERAGE BLOOD GLUCOSE - 82
I made a few charts to track my progress. The grey lines are my long term goals. The blue lines are my actual results. The orange lines are my 7-day average using a trailing stop. 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.
