We were actually sleeping, @Karim_Wassef. At least us here in the US.
@Karim_Wassef didn’t you mention you have a traveling scale to weigh yourself on?
Or did I make that up because I thought it was a cool idea…
I think he does have one.
The duck was actually good
I have a small travel scale but it’ll be good to get more data at home
I was wondering what you use. I may want to get one.
Wife couldn’t stop laughing though since I had to learn to balance on it with my big feet.
Asleep? Since when?
It’s that “how to sleep” vid I posted earlier, huh?
Thanks… Wish I had known that in the beginning of the trip.
Since I’m back to work, I’m sleeping a lot more normally.
Are you back in the states yet??
Just landed… on the tarmac but can’t disembark due to weather issues… so clearly… keto chat
I’ve been hungry on this trip and now on this flight.
The satiety I feel when at home is disturbed. It could be
- Time zone confusion
- Bad habit of 2MAD (breakfast) daily for a week
- Lack of weightlifting
- Excess protein
- Excess stress and uneasy sleep
I do not like it.
I’ve had 1/2 slice of roast beef, a 1/2 slice of cheese and a half slice of turkey in addition to the one nugget of duck… I had intended to fast.
For someone who can fast for weeks, this feels very “weak” but I know satiety is biochemical, not self control.
thanks very much.
I have said it before, she needs to start taking videos!!
I’m a very private person - not a brave Darren.
Sitting in an airplane seat for 13hrs may also be messing with my satiety? Insufficient salt intake?
So much to mess with my biochemistry.
So… it was salt and water
Once I had my pinch of salt and bottle of water, the hunger left me.
I’m speed reading, but sounds like you need HOURS of sleep.
yes. I need some rest…
so… I left Shanghai at 5pm on Saturday and arrived in Dallas also at 5pm on Saturday… 13hr time difference and 13hr flight…
So I have a day that’s 1.5x longer than a normal day… and I have to count eating twice in one day, even though it’s not really 2MAD.
so… heavy macros day:
The effect of the trip is that I’ve lost more weight than I thought and more of it in lean mass than I predicted (no weightlifting for a week is enough to mess it all up)
so I thought I’d be at 20.6% BF and I’m at 21% which sounds close except that I’ve lost a lot more total mass than I expected.
Dr. Darren Schmidt : Time To Update Your Keto Knowledge
I definitely lost weight and unfortunately it was heavily lean mass loss again so I need to rebuild.
Shame how quickly my weight loss comes from lean mass. I can’t seem to shake it.
Back home feels good. Up at 5am but that’s ok, all things considered.
My stress dissipated quickly once I got a hug from my family and had my little ones climbing on my shoulders…
My little home gym is calling my name but I’d probably be too loud… I’ll wait till they wake up first.
In the meantime -
So in less than 10hrs of coming home, and even after substantially overeating on fat and protein the 1.5 travel days before, my glucose is back to 66 and ketones at 2.4 …
So all else being equal, protein does disrupt things. But all things not being equal, stress seems to play a major role in my health.
