Xylitol 10 times more toxic to dogs than chocolate

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      10 comments

As I was researching Xylitol as a sweetener today I found out that it is much more toxic than I thought. It spikes blood sugar in dogs (but not people) and leads to very severe hypolycemia and liver damage in very small dosis and will kill dogs ... Read more

I want to start out by sharing a link that explains a common misconception about ketosis and keto-acidosis:

Back in Ketosis - quickly this time

Friday, November 09, 2012      7 comments

It took only 24 hours this time, a sign that I had not overdone it too badly with the fruit carbs. I can always tell that I'm back in ketosis by the fact that my weight suddenly drops, this time from 132.8 down to 131.2 this morning. As usual... Read more

Trying new things this coming winter

Friday, November 09, 2012      6 comments

I like to try new things, new twists to an old way of eating, new forms of exercise, new hobbies and new goals. I'm in a time of transition at the moment. Part of it is the time of year, the end of fall and beginning of winter just around the co... Read more

Safe starches - not for most of us

Thursday, November 08, 2012      4 comments

That is my conclusion after doing some additional research on Ron Rosedale's blog. The reason is this: While I believe that so-called "safe starches" are not as toxic as grains and beans and sugar, they will still raise insulin-levels and r... Read more

How many carbs are ideal for health?

Monday, November 05, 2012      9 comments

The first question we need to ask is whether this is even the right question, because if we ask the wrong question we will certainly get the wrong answer. So let's back up one more step. Does the number of carbs matter to determine the best ap... Read more

Is my plan sustainable?

Sunday, November 04, 2012      13 comments

This is what I want to find out over the next 37 days. I already know what I need to do and how to do it. I will no longer monitor weight, carbs, water consumption or the foods I eat on a daily basis as this would actually waste energy and ti... Read more

My new 40-day plan

Thursday, November 01, 2012      6 comments

It's 40 days until my next body scan appointment. My doctor thought this would give me enough time to see a significant difference in my body composition and possibly some more weight loss as well. The primary goals are still keeping my blood... Read more

Results from InBody scan

Thursday, November 01, 2012      4 comments

There is only very little change as expected. My weight was up 0.4 lbs. , my body fat was down 1/2 lb and my lean muscle mass was up by 0.2 pounds. Overall not bad given that I let my carbs go as high as 80 grams on some days and that I had t... Read more

Day 18 and last day of my ultra-low carb experiment

Wednesday, October 31, 2012      6 comments

The good news is that my weight is back to 129.8, which means I'm back in ketosis. I wasn't very hungry yesterday in part because my throat hurt. Today I did not really have time to eat until lunch and that was bacon and eggs and a few nuts with... Read more
