and higher than expected glucose.
I am not sure if this seems too high? The last meal I had was at 7pm it is now almost 2pm. The only thing I have done today is clean and go on a 1.5 mile walk at a very slow pace with my boyfriend. I had a little bit of apple cider vinegar this morning and water.
I sat down and tested my glucose and ketones:
My glucose while I was doing an extended fast dipped down to 60, but when I am not doing an extended fast and only doing intermittent fasting, it seems to hover around 85-92. Is this high?
Also while doing my extended fast my ketones were at 2.2 and when intermittent fasting its typically .5-1.0
I have been very careful to not go over my carbs, I am only having 16g of net carbs or less a day. I am eating about 1250-1400 calories a day depending on how much i exercise.
70-75% fat / 20-25% protein / 5% or less of carbs
I am 5’4" 165 pounds and female. Not really sure why my ketones seem so low and glucose seems high. I know anything under 100 is considered normal but for having not had food for about 18 hours I was expecting them a bit higher I guess. Maybe part of why I’ve lost 0 pounds in the month I’ve been on the diet lol
