Day 06. I had a pretty bad dehydration headache this morning. I actually stopped on my way to work and grabbed a small jar of pickles, ate them all and drank the juice. USDA reference database says it had approx 33.6 calories with 3.7g net carbs. I’m still counting it as “Keto Chow only” though. I do feel better, pickle juice always makes me happy =)
My blood ketones are still hanging out in the 0.4-0.6 mmol/dL range. I expect in 2 days that’ll jump up quite a lot when I start my week of GrapeSeed Oil.
Thinly veiled TMI bowel discussion ahead. You’ve been warned.
Even though I’ve done all my meals with Keto Chow in the past, it seems every time I go 100% I have several days of “never trust a fart”. It’s really weird because if I have a meal of regular Keto food every few days, it’s not an issue. I took some probiotics yesterday and will take some more tonight, I suspect that will be sufficient to get things right again, and so far this afternoon everything has been just fine.
