It’s been great reading through these posts from this afternoon, from IF and EF to computer matchmaking for the “win”! I can’t add to that, but I can really understand the benefit of getting to know someone before you meet/see them. It’s a unique opprtunity. It does remind me of some old-school “mail order bride” for the pioneer/immigrant sort of thing too!
So darcy, Dr Berstein likes a BG of 83…partly because of his salesman?! That’s too funny by half! Nice way to work out a longer fast. Somehow it’s easier to do a lot of things when someone gives you just that little extra bit of “yes”.
This morning’s FBG was 103. I’ve seen that trend but refused to get too worked up about it. I checked again this afternoon around 445PM and it was 79. I’m eating pasta zero and Keto pad thai and loving it. I had thought about an overnight 36-36 hour fast but decided against it. I’m going away for an extended weekend vacation and plan to have some very nice dinners, and maybe even a breakfast or two? I can get a fast in when I come home again.
Liz, it really helps hearing your words of hope and the positive experience you’ve had with adding EF to the keto WOE to get past stalls. I’m convinced that I need to keep calm, and etc, but keep IF/EF as well. Such powerful tools! As for your steak dinner idea, don’t you find it hard to keep from over eating protein?
These last few days have REALLY been an eye opener for e. here I am, trying Keto again for the second time. I thought I was really getting it and following the guidelines rather strictly. I have noticed that I wasn’t seeing much more w/ BG control (Dawn phenomenon especially), nor with weight loss or even NSVs. The thing is, now that I started to really be diligent to calculate the carbs and protein I can see that I was just plain over-doing it. Kind of depressing, but also gives me hope that I can get this back in line with the proper macros and possibly see some better results.
I’m so happy to have others to follow, hearing about their discoveries, questions and victories. Here’s to a great second half of September…Sizzle!
So, that’s my long winded, yes September is rushing past, hi-how-are-you post!
