So I started the day waking up hungry….I knew I was going to break my fast. I don’t ever wake up hungry, but I was starving. I was very weak also, and this makes working very hard. I not only had to do my job, but I was covering for a person out on medical leave starting today and for the next two weeks….UGH! I started working but decided by 11:00 am that enough was enough.
I suspected that I was going to feel this way so made a bone broth in the slow cooker. I Poured a bowl and starting eating…slowly. I had lost .6 lbs this morning, so a total just over 10 lbs so I was ready to eat today. So here is the TMI part. About an hour later, my insides started to cramp and gurgle. I spent the next 30 minutes in the bathroom with every bit of what I ate coming out of me….violently. So much for starting to eat!! I just ate dinner…waiting to see if it stays in me.
On a happy note, I didn’t have a Dawn Effect. My morning blood glucose level was 85. I was so happy. And then I checked my blood sugar two hours after I ate and it was 119. Thats pretty normal. So I have made some health progress strides…huge strides
So what’s next for me? I decided to fast 42 hours three times a week and when I do eat, it will be what Dr. Eric Berg calls “Healthy Keto”. This means eating 7-10 cups of veggies per day, 3-6 oz of protein per meal, and fat to top it off. I will drink coffee with a few tablespoons of heavy cream and a few drops of liquid organic stevia. The rest of the day will be water; flat and bubbly.
I just started using a new fasting app called Life Fasting on the Apple App Store. IT IS SOOOO COOL! If you fast, you should check it out. It tells you when you are most likely in Ketosis, autophagy, and when your HGH(Human Growth Hormone) is starting or going up. It even connects you with a fasting community, which is cool. I haven’t used that feature yet, but I will play around with it and let you know what I think.
I’m going to take pictures tomorrow, as I didn’t have time today. And weigh myself. I suspect that I will have gained about 3 lbs with food etc in me. I’ll let you know….but for now, I am fasting again and don’t plan on eating tomorrow except for coffee with cream and water. More to follow tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
