Day 089 – 100 days of Keto (Chow)

This entry is part 73 of 81 in the series 100 days of keto
  • Weight: 204.6
  • Blood ketones: I’ll measure this evening

So after yesterday’s post where I was befuddled with the lower ketone levels in the morning, a nice redditor pointed me over to an article about the Dawn Phenomenon. That article was really cool and explained a lot, I also found a bunch of outer really interesting posts on that site. If you have some time and want to learn some really cool stuff about metabolism, insulin and fasting I would recommend checking it out.

The take-away from that article is that in the morning your body releases glucose, which in turn will lower ketones. This is normal and natural, even in ketosis. So measuring ketone levels in the morning turns out to be a bad idea. So 89 days into this experiment I’m going to start measuring ketones in the evening after I get home from work. Wish I had known that earlier.

After the crazy fasting I expected to gain back some water weight and I did not disappoint =)
