Three weeks from today

I'll be in Phoenix, attempting to complete 100 miles in 72 hours.


My goal is to have my ketones at least in the 1's, 2 would be even better. Unfortunately I'm floundering around .4. Starting today I'm cutting out the snacks, when I was in the 1's I was eating 2 meals a day without a problem. I'm going to duplicate the foods I was eating when I was in the higher ketone numbers.

Back then I was eating breakfast, skipping lunch, then ate dinner. This morning I had my favorite breakfast, adapted from the diet doctor from Sweden. Yogurt mixed with heavy cream. Topped with some nuts and coconut flakes. I added a couple pomegranate seeds too. A bowl of this stuff keeps me full until the afternoon.

For someone who's walking 100 miles in a few weeks, my exercise has been very low. I've got a couple long hikes planned, I'm also going to hit the gym. That might help boost my ketones too.
