Day 13 - PSK
Eating at a higher calorie PSK is making me much hungrier. I’m not sure if it’s because of the increase in fat or protein, but I actually wake up hungry. It fades but it’s curiously uncomfortable. It may be the increase from 10g to 12g … that would be sad if that minor of a change has this much effect.
To add to this, my morning ketones were at 0.7… so an absolute disaster given that I’m eating almost 1000 calories below my estimated RMR and 12g of carb!!!
I’m going to drop back down to 0.8g/lb lean protein and try to keep fat around 60g. If I go too low, I get headaches and digestive stress. If I go too high, I apparently drop out of “high” ketosis.
… not happy with the PSK results.
I can’t wait to be done with this experiment and go back to extended fasting in 6 more days!
