Health Journey – Week # 3

Image Source

Hello everybody,

It’s been another week that I have been on my low carb/keto diet/journey to health.

I have lost 3.8 pounds since last Friday…making it a total of 11 pounds lost since starting January 1st!  That is progress. I had stalled for a little while and I was getting bummed.

I planned to start working out, but I got a cold which put those plans on hold. Once I am over my cold though I will start working out.  I think I will work out in the morning before I eat my first meal.

On to my blood sugars….(first number is fasting)

January 13th

148, 143, 111, 81

64 Protein, 83 fat, 11 net carbs (12 carbs, 1 fiber)

January 14th

123, 96, 115, 69

68 protein, 98 fat, 21 net carbs (24 carbs – 3 fiber)

January 15th

119, 116, 73, 67

93 protein, 79 fat 15 net carbs (16 carbs – 1 fiber)

January 16th

117, 114, 132, 98

64 protein, 94 fat, 13 net carbs (14 carbs – 1 fiber)

January 17th

132, 104, 105, 88

83 protein, 103 fat, 17 net carbs (19 carbs – 2 fiber)

January 18th

143, 126, 118, 100

62 protein, 62 fat, 23 net carbs (26 – 3 fiber)

January 19th

138, 117, 83, 104

74 protein, 77 fat, 16 net carbs (29 carbs – 13 fiber)

My averages are getting better…they used to be over 200, now they are…..

14 day average – 116

30 day average = 132

What I seem to be having trouble is my fasting number.  While they are highly improved, some are still too high. I always seem to have a 50-60 point rise during the night.  I know it’s the dawn effect, but I am not sure how to correct that other than keep on the low carb for the indefinite future (which I plan to except for a few “cheat” days).
