It was about time after I spent the summer eating plenty of fruit and the occasional piece of chocolate or ice cream with sugar.
My blood sugar level responded accordingly. My Ha1c level was up to 6.0 a week ago. I was a bit surprised since my carb levels were still not terribly high, definitely under 100 and many times under 80 grams/day. My body is clearly not made for a lot of carbs.
I did exercise less but not a lot less.
In any case, I am planning to reverse this trend as quickly as possible and am happy to report that I'm back in ketosis as of this morning. My hope is to get my Ha1c under 5.7 in the next 3 months. This should be possible if I can increase my exercise to about 90 minutes a day, incl. strength training 3 times/week and running or swimming 6 times/week.
