No headaches at all this past week although I've been tired and sleepy. Bought ketone urine sticks yesterday and they showed 4 last night and 1.6 this morning. My appetite has disappeared altogether. The higher calories for the week reflect the stuffing of face during the first few days while getting into ketosis and battling cravings. Now I'm sure I can eat once or twice a day and be perfectly happy. The reason it took me less time to get in the groove is because I've been bouncing in and out of ketosis since the new year, never actually stuffing my face with carbs on a daily basis.
Foods I've been eating: bacon, chicken broth, beef broth, buckwheat and pork sausage, some romaine lettuce, head cheese, eggs, steak, pork chops, chicken, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, coffee, tea, cream, stevia.
I achieved my heaviest weight ever on March 13th of this year. I am now down a total of 6.2 lbs. No more half-hearted attempts. I've been so excited about retirement in 1 year, 8 months, and 21 days, but wasn't sure I'd make it if I didn't smarten up and follow my own dietary advice. I'm fortunate in that I actually know what works for me but am usually too weak-willed to follow through. I feel sorry for those who are following conventional dietary advice and wondering why they are getting heavier and sicker.
