Day 4 – Nutritional Ketosis

Weight: 178.4
AM Ketones: 1.1
PM Ketones: 1.1
AM Blood Glucose:
PM Blood Glucose:
Hours of Sleep: 6:50
Energy Level: Excellent!
Physical Activity: None


Continued weight loss and continued nutritional ketosis range.  Can’t ask for more.

Energy level is still great despite having less than 7 hours of sleep.  I found that I woke up naturally today before the alarm.

It’s funny, while being on this diet I don’t have any cravings for the binge-fest cheat days I so looked forward to while I was trying to follow Tim Ferriss Slow Carb methodology.

I suspect it’s overall better for your health to not have to rely on binge days.  For me at least they did serve an important function.  They worked fantastically at being a pressure release for me to fulfill my carb cravings.  A sort of damage control…  A controlled destruction to allow for further progress!  Without those pressure releases, I’m pretty confident that I wouldn’t have been able to stick to the diet and reap the benefits.

It wasn’t until I hit a plateau at around 182-185 lbs that I started exploring other options and getting interested in Paleo and subsequently a ketotic diet… and now I’m seeing even more progress!

    I have not yet read the study (some bedtime reidang tonight..haha), Firstly, I would love to read a study of centenarians from a Western culture, does anyone know if there is such a thing? It is hard to extrapolate from the Korean study as diet is not the only thing that contributes to longevity.I note a couple of things on the table that are interesting.Calcium intake is low, suggesting perhaps a diet also low in dairy.There are no alcohol calories included. Are they teetotal?Fibre intake is low compared to amount of carbs, I wonder why that is?Retinol intake is low but carotene intake is really high. It looks like these people are close to vegetarian.Anyways.. I guess if I go ahead and read it, all of these questions will be answered.
