And now a moment to reflect..

Yesterday my ketones were 2.8, I'm still in nutritional ketosis.

Last year, if you would have told me I'd be eating a LCHF diet, I would have bet a dollar that you were wrong. Then I would have lost another dollar when you said that I would love it!

I have completely overhauled my diet. I went from a high carb, vegetarian (for 25 years) to a high fat carnivore.

This week I completed 2 marathons and 2 half marathons (78.6 miles)in 4 days. Every morning I ate 2 eggs with some ham and cheese, spread with butter. I consumed no food or sport drink during the races. I only drank water and electrolyte tablets and felt fine. If I wasn't the one who did this, I wouldn't believe it was possible.

Now that I'm in nutritional ketosis, I have zero cravings for the carb porn I used to eat on a daily basis. It reminds me of when I was a vegetarian, I didn't consider a hamburger food (what a fool I was!) so I was detached from it. I can look at the bakery case in Starbucks and not even think about consuming any of it. Something I have never been able to do.

I'm amazed at how even my energy is throughout the day. I can't take an afternoon nap even if I wanted to. Actually, I kind of miss that part.

And I'm losing weight! I'm eating a diet that's at least 70% fat and I can fit in all the clothes in my closet. Most of them are too big now.

I have to give a big shout out to Jimmy Moore. I never heard about nutritional ketosis until I read about his experiment. I'm having success because I'm following his footsteps and listening to his podcasts. Thank you Jimmy!

  1. Awesome to hear about your success! I've been low carb, gluten free for quite some time. I'd like to get my butt into nutritional ketosis. I'm assuming you have a meter you use. Which one? Have you been able to locate a decent price for the strips?
