Phew, it’s hot. But I have physiotherapy for surfing rehab in just over an hour’s time. I don’t want to go. And that’s why I will. Then I’ll mulch a tree (ninja gardening in town), and pick up some coffee.
I broke that fast like a leg on an 80 year old snow skier. Just plain old bacon, 4 rashers middle cut, and eggs, 3 pasture fed chicken eggs with salt. 2 coffees a few hours apart. Last night was lamb chops and 4 small beef sausages. I think I’ll continue to avoid sausages. These were left over from summer holidaying visitors. I’m going to drink a hot beef bone broth despite it being a hot summer day. It’s hovering just under and over 90F.
Fasting but after one coffee blood glucose= 6.1mmol/l (110mg/dl) with blood ketones of 0.2mmol/l.
So, I’m back at that higher fasting blood glucose zone again. At least this time, with the help of Linda @Azi, I can recognise a key cause as eating too much, even though eating on plan. There is a better optimum zone where there is no hunger, but the volume of food is not so high. Food nutrient density also comes into play where eggs and ruminant meat hold hunger better than pork, chicken, and seafood. The latter 3 ZC foods I see as accompaniments these days rather than meal foundations. Cream based dairy is another tasty ZC supplement that is either helping the plan or creating its own small world of metabolic and psychological havoc. So, the plan is to adjust and eat a bit less. @Fangs this is not restriction, it’s observation.
There endeth today’s brain fallout.
This is a local, native jewel beetle I found in the garden. I’m not eating insects.
