Due to unforeseen circumstances I ended staying up later than anticipated and subsequently not getting a good amount of sleep, which pretty much screwed me for the rest of the day. I was pretty much running on empty all day long.
I had originally intended to go to a BJJ class this morning, but given my lack of sleep, I just couldn’t make it… and I stayed in bed for another hour or so.
Glad to still be in the nutritional ketosis range. I’d feel better if my ketones were closer to 2 or 3 mmol rather than 0.8.
Not too sure what what the difference was between the day before and today. Been keeping my carbs below 50 gm. I might need to up my intake of fats.
If it keeps staying in this range, I’ll try to do a more quantitative analysis of my diet and see exactly what percent of my calories are coming in the form of fats, proteins, and carbs.
Can my amount of sleep have an effect on the ketones?
My stress level? The unforeseen circumstances resulted in a large amount of stress!
Not enough fat?
Too much protein?
Maybe something I’m eating that I haven’t quite teased out yet…
More experimentation to follow…
In the mean time, here is a very interesting experiment from someone who is in ketosis an decided to see what effect diet soda would have on him. Turns out while it kept his blood glucose stable there was a lasting, measurable effect on his blood ketones.
