Day 32 in ketosis

Thursday, December 22, 2016

When I woke up this morning, I peed on a ketostix, as I normally do, and found it was pretty darn pink. That's a good color to anyone in ketosis. It means the litmus paper registered a high number of ketones, which means my body is making a lot of ketones! I'm not supplementing them in any way either, so this proves the diet is working. I do have some MCT oil coming in the mail that should be delivered tomorrow (thank you Amazon prime). Once I incorporate the MCT oil into my daily routine, I expect my ketone levels to increase yet again as MCT oil is processed in the liver like a carbohydrate and creates ketones. Extra ketones mean more energy, increased mental clarity, and ketones act as an appetite suppressant. All good things for me. I haven't struggled to suppress my appetite since being in ketosis, but extra ketones may ensure that I continue not to struggle.

Short post today, friends. Happy Holidays everyone!

    I stay under 25. Yes, I love cheese, but also watch my protein intake, so I try to stay under 70 grams per day of protein. How about you?

    Good stuff. How many grams of carbs do you eat per day? 20, 30?

    Do you eat cheese or other treats when you get hungry? I'm Keto myself.
