Are these URINE or BLOOD. The numbers used imply Blood.
If blood, then you are probably doing something to cause your body to burn less fat.
You could be testing earlier in the morning (dawn effect).
You might have added dairy to your coffee because you have been “good”. I have seen blood levels drop for those reasons. I have also seen them drop, and glucose go high while doing everything right, at a previous “weight” that was held for a while. And my theory is that the LIVER has to believe you are serious and it starts releasing the glycogen it stored at that old weight BEFORE you gained more. Now it releases it, when it is done, we see the glucose go back down, and ketones go up, and a Woosh of a few pounds.
Our bodies are unfortunately complex. something as trivial as BPC powder has thrown me off. Changing brands of coffee. Eating too much pork fat.
It takes a lifetime of experience and tracking to find out all of these things… And the goal of the community is to help out when people come asking. We can’t know for sure.
Here is something else. Eating later at night will raise my glucose 10 points and lower my ketones (for my morning reading). Dr. Boz says it is because the liver did not get enough time to empty your meal as fuel before you went to bed. It seems to add up!
PS: Why I think you are using blood strips… First you SHOULD be, LOL. Second if you are not, IGNORE the values. Dehydration/Hydration can radically change the values. My buddy peed purple strips. Upon testing his blood numbers, they were the same as mine. I was light pink. I don’t trust pee strips! (Plus after 18 months, they are useless, I don’t waste ketones much)
