AM Blood Glucose: 87
Hours of Sleep: 7:54
Energy Level: Excellent
Physical Activity: Basketball

I could tell my ketones were going to be pretty low the moment I saw my glucose numbers.  I do both tests at the same time, but since the ketone test takes a full 10 seconds and the blood glucose test takes 2-3 seconds, I always see the glucose results first.  I’ve noticed that when my sugars are greater than 85, I can expect a low ketone number.

I did pretty well today with my diet.  Started the day off with my hot cocoa fat bomb… then for lunch we went to a Brazilian BBQ Churrascaria place…. Perfect for a ketogenic diet… if not a little high on the protein side.  No carbs whatsoever… just lots and lots of meat.  Needless to say, this gave me a strong feeling of food coma afterwards which I addressed by napping through one of the lectures in my conference.

Had a great time playing basketball.  2 straight hours of almost non-stop sprinting back and forth had me feeling pretty tired.  I didn’t bonk though… so I think that is a good function of being in ketosis.  I figure this type of activity, for this duration should pretty much use up every last bit of glycogen I have stored up from the Chinese food.  We’ll see tomorrow morning.

Day 33b

Did pretty well with my estimated macros, but since these are all from general estimates obtained from the web, and are probably grossly inaccurate, I’m debating whether or not to continue with this while I’m traveling. I do like having a running tally of my macros and overall caloric intake during the day though… even if its way off…
