Low Carb Try 2, Part 2

The line went a bit wiggly, but the trend is down:

Weight (Lbs) and Ketostix Reading vs. Date

On the 24th I had blood drawn for an NMR Lipoprofile and HbA1c. We'll get to see if I'm dead yet in a couple more days when the results come back.

Low carb, Try 2.

On the basis of being lazy and having a poor diet, my weight crept back up from my low carb low of 205 up to 222. Time to do something about it. So back on the diet. This time with more fat and I've been peeing on sticks so I can make better graphs.

Zero carbs for 12 days. Lots of meat, eggs, bacon and I'm drinking flax oil daily for the omega-3s.

Weight & Ketones vs. Time

It took 7 days for the ketosis to get above trace levels (while my muscle tissue burnt through its glycogen stores). Note the change in the slope of weight when continuous ketosis kicks in on the 15th.
