- Weight: 209.6
- Blood ketones: 0.7 mmol/L
At my weigh-in yesterday I was down 3 lbs from the previous week, not bad. Hopefully this next week will be even better. Somebody asked what I’m using to measure blood ketones. I’m using a Nova Max glucose/ketone meter with it’s incredibly expensive ($2 each) ketone testing strips. I think if I had to do it over again I would buy testing strips for the Precision Xtra instead but this is what I have and it’s what I’m going to use.
Last night I tried making Keto Chow muffins but with some modifications to the recipe: I didn’t whip the cream, I mixed it in a blender, I added a little coconut flour. Overall it worked out extremely well and I’m going to try it again tonight but without the coconut flour and adding the powder while the blender is running (I got a couple dry clumps on the side because I didn’t get it mixing fast enough). I made 3 “meals” worth split up into 24 muffins. I ate 8, my wife ate like 5 or 6 and the kids ate most of the rest. My youngest daughter asked for another and I pointed out that she had pizza right there that I can’t eat “Ok, I’ll eat 2 more pieces and then can I have another one?” So if you had any doubt whether they’re good, don’t doubt the muffins!
