I prefer a ketosis diet but for the fun of science I tested this for 3 days in a row.
Started Keto WoE (way of eating) 5 months ago.
First 3 months, any carbs above 25ish would throw me out of ketosis and I would have several hours before I got back into ketosis.
Also for that first few months my blood ketones where up in the 2’s.
The last 2 months my ketones will not get above .05 to .08 range even with 72 hours of fasting. It peaked at 0.9 on the 72 hour.
- Last dexa scan showed me at 53% body fat
- Height 5’7
- Weight 231lbs
- Age 39
- MTHFR C677T
- migraine suffer since 12
Past 3 days Ive been doing an OMAD (one meal a day) carb meal and testing my blood glucose and ketones. Results seemed odd. Eating is done between 6pm-8pm.
Testing Numbers look like this each night -
Prior to meal : Glucose 104 / 5.7 , Ketones .05
30 minutes after meal : Glucose 114 / 6.3 , Ketones 1.2
Same ketones for up to 2 hours after meal
Ketones slowly return back to the .05 range after several hours.
How many carbs in the OMAD?
- 65 carbs
- 65 carbs
- 70 carbs
Consuming OMAD carb meals DOUBLES my blood ketones but I don’t know why and it used to kick me out of ketosis FAST.
Also, weight loss. Lost 4 lbs in the 3 days.
B. Why am I not getting kicked out of ketosis?
C. Why are instead my ketones raising and then coming back to the my normal?
Any feedback, links would be much appreciated
