Nutritional Ketosis Day 66

I took a couple of days off the blog; I started a new candida albican detox and it has been kicking my butt! I have been doing good diet wise but I have felt off because of the detox symptoms.

I took the opportunity to look back at my data and research more ways to fine-tune my diet, especially because I want to lose a bit more body fat.

I noticed that, even at a low-calorie level, I have been bouncing around the same 5 pounds. I think that my current diet set-up is perfect for maintenance but I think I need to adjust my macro slightly in order to burn more body fat.

The great advantage now is that I am fully keto-adapted. Hunger or energy “bonk” haven’t been an issue for several weeks, so I feel I have more liberty to play with macro percentages, as long as I keep my carbohydrates low.

I have read about an observation about a small percentage of low carb dieters; even at lower calorie than maintenance, the burning of body fat becomes hindered when a lot of dietary fat is consumed.

For the next 10 days I will bump up my protein and lower my fat, but I will keep the same amount of calories. I won’t go lower than 50-60% fat; I want to make sure I stay in ketosis. We will see if I can accelerate body fat burning that way.

Today I had: Water with apple cider vinegar (with the mother), cayenne pepper and salt and sparkling water. I also had some black tea sweetened with xylitol. I had eggs, tuna and salami with pumpkin seeds and sriracha sauce. That’s 950 calories for today.

Psyllium husks left in diet juice for an hour... reminds me of applesauce.
