    This morning:
    Blood Glucose 7.4 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones 0.1 mmol / L

    Before bed:
    Blood Glucose 6.7 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones 0.2 mmol / L


    I've decided to convalesce for a while. Jumped back into fat fast, erm ... well, erm, too fast!

    Sure thing - I should be recovered by then and also better prepared with an eating plan. Have a few ideas I want to toy with before I set a final plan.

    I also need to get back on track with the run

    This am. BGL 4.9 unexpectedly happy with that, after being force fed biscuits, tea and macaroni cheese for a week and being without a meter. O the stress!
    Ketones 1.4
    Jason Fung has said, in
    Ask Jason Fung,
    that switching from Fasting over hours and days, seems to give the metabolism more of a work out and the may be better not to get into a pattern of nourishment at set times of day.
    I have just been with people who nibble and snack almost constantly throughout the day, and are not overweight or otherwise unhealthy, but I cannot live well like that - I feel as though my brain gets dampened down and sluggish and my motivation suffers unless I increase my activity a lot, to compensate.
    So various cycles of fasting and moderate eating in a low carb way,I find, suits me best .which is why I am always up for any fat fasts, water fasts, low carb regimes et cetera. It was a bit of a shock being without the meters and BP monitor for a while, but it has made me realise that I may be becoming stuck into another kind of routine which I knew nothing of, I mean testing, a year ago.

    Thanks Ed - it comes at a price. First was cutting out all potatoes, bread, rice and pasta, then the Newcastle Protocol, followed by LCHF, then I met up with all you guys, with the Volek and Phinney ketosis.
    It can be difficult, as you would know, cooking for others who are following a different WOE, and I think it is interesting how an inconsistent nutritional intake can give such consistent results.
    Now , if only there was a way to regulate hypertension..... My thinking on this is that, like T2D, there is a solution to be found that does not involve medication, with consequent side effects and that this will involve much more sleep than I seem able to achieve. It is said that less sleep is required as one ages and I am certainly doing that , but I bend my efforts, I have to say, into maintaining as much function in body and brain as possible., as I am sure you do, Ed, and at a lesser age too, I think, which is A GOOD THING!

    Ah, Rugby! Muddy men colliding! Thanks for the news of @Pasha. So glad to hear all is well. How are your shins after the racketball?
    Must be off on the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride now. Not that I am one, but several members of my family are!
    BGL now 5.4mmol/L after breakfast.

    Stiff but happy with the fact that not kaput. Kept at the back of the court so lost today's and yesterday's matches and will lose tomorrow's. Hey ho will go down in 5 he league but only temp. See this month as not injuring further than playing well.

    Too many carbs, too much wine. Looking forward to our next adventure.

    Great DGR yesterday, if I knew how to put pictures in, I would(thinks...what an escape!)
    This morning, after I discovered a Cafe in Canberra that actually sold BPCoffee, BGL is 4.7mmol/L and ketones 1.9.
    Not bad, considering the many carby foods on offer, but I held back, because they used to be favourites and once begun...

    @baruney, good going, saving your shins. They will be better soon

    This morning on waking:
    Blood Glucose = 7.2 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones = 0.1 mmol / L

    Before evening experiment and then bed:
    Blood Glucose 6.2 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones 0.3 mmol / L

    @merrylizard1314 ...
    Good find with the Cafe selling BPC! clap
    Certainly seems to be legit based on your blood scores! thumb-up
    How did it compare to your own home made? What did they put in it?

    Shocking 8.1 for me this morning - no need to bother with the ketones then.

    Leg getting better time to up the exercise and lower the carbs.

    @merrylizard - how much do they charge for a BPC then?

    I don't normally test for Blood Ketones if Blood Glucose is over 6.0 mmol / L - not worth it. Have been considering a Ketonix - any thoughts?

    Glad to read this. It's horrible having an enforced rest from running, isn't it!?! I still have a niggling achilles over a year after injuring it!  banghead

    Hello again, according to the menu, the BPC contained MCT oil and organic butter from the cream of grass-fed cows. It tasted like the ones I made, a bit stronger, if anything, and was served in a smallish mug-about 200ml. It cost $6. I could have had the large size, about 400ml for $7.50, but I didn't see that until after we'd ordered.
    How much do you chaps pay for BPCs then?
    Your tale of continued Achilles problems, nom, makes me almost glad to have just broken my leg - all better now and no residuals to speak of.
    Are Ketonix not hideously expensive? I know @Pasha had one, and had fun by fantasising about the winking lights. Wasn't he going to work out the ratios between the readings from ketone strips and the Ketonix?
    Just going to bed now, and I am having a late rising day tomorrow, and won't get up before 7.15.
    BGL5.4mmol/L I do not often test before bed, as I my last meal for the day is usually late afternoon, between 4.30-5.30pm.

    Night then @merrylizard.

    Nope they don't sell them here - I think Oz is a bit more forward re low carb than the UK. But I can see them coming here soon (especially to London) and especially if they can make a lot of money selling them. I'm cheap and cheerful with KTC oil from the local Gurkha. Nom has some pandy mct oil flown in one by one on a private hire plane and keeps wondering my it costs so much!

    Not gone down the ketonix route - picked up some abbott strips on ebay for a bargain. They will come down in price over time though.

    Pefect bloods as usual.

    Hola @merrylizard1314

    Perfect numbers as always.

    Yep lots of radio silence going on. Are we going with your plan on Monday -

    ...the other strange thing is that I think I prefer water fasting, as it is so easy to do. I mean it does not require a lot of calculating and beating oneself up, if boundaries are over run. I rather like the idea of
    2 days water fast
    2 days low carb
    1 day fat fast
    2 days low carb
    2.days fat fast
    3 days low carb
    2 days water fast

    Additions to water fast include red wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar, 2teaspoons in a glass of water, before bed! Yes, 5th October, loony or not.

    Excellent Blood Glucose and Ketone figures - wouldn't expect anything else from you @merrylizard1314 thumb-up

    I've been swamped by "Life challenges" and have had very little time for spurious activity.

    I'm around and about "lurking" here there and everywhere.

    @Baruney and myself are still considering where we should "lay our hats" and the Fastober is approaching at an alarming rate.

    Are we Fastobering on a new thread on here then?

    Lurking is good, Nom, and life challenges are exhausting sometimes, aren't they? I have a big one at the moment, it is the pressure to complete by a certain date, that I always find difficult while it is in progress, and always say- I'm not doing this again- but completion is satisfying, and after a time, I do agree to it again, must be a bit mad.
    Today BGL 4.9mmol/L ketones 1.3 off to swimming soon. A promise of 25degrees today - a perfect day for almost anything.
    Catch you in the Fastober thread.
