Day 5 Keto Lifestyle Loveland Medical Weight Loss clinic Oct 8 2017
You really need two essential items for a keto lifestyle. A good keto cookbook and a scale. I have had my cheap scale for the last 4 years and it’s still running good. You can find these items in our store.

1800 dinner asian fish balls with cauliflower rice. I used Halibut , but any white fish would do. I cooked the rice in the fish sauce. Cauliflower rice is a great substitute for real rice. I will eat real rice when I am doing one of my carb days. There is something out there called wheat germ agglutinin. This triggers and immune reaction in all humans. Bran, rye, oats, and wheat are the worst offenders. Just do not do it. Rice does not have this. This is why the Japanese and Chinese have lower heart disease than we do. It is good to get out of ketosis and carb up once in a while. Your body does need to remind itself how to utilize carbs efficiently.

Feel like crap. That is what eating too much sugary carbs can do to you. You usually feel it in the gut when you eat what you were not supposed to eat.
Skipped my walk due to the snow (and feeling like crap)

Wim Hoff (60 pu) I set a new record for myself for pushups. If you have not seen the video of the Wim Hoff pushup routine you should watch it at least once. It is boring, but once you get the pattern it is something easy you can do on a daily basis. I have done a couple Wim Hoff courses and that crazy Dutchman can help you live better.
Stretching routine. Notice how consistent I am with this. 5 minutes is all.
0915 ketones 1.6 glucose 95
I was curious about my numbers after eating like I did last night. Still in ketosis. Just goes to show you once you have become adapted your body switches back and forth pretty easily. I do want to make a point that I am basically fasting mimicking every single day. I eat in a short window at night. The rest of the time it is pure fat mixed with coffee, bone broth, or a fat bomb. I am very picky on the ingredients. Grass fed meat, organic vegetables, no processed foods(except when I cheat). I like using ghee these days more than butter. It has to do with the cassein molecule. Cassein a-1 mimics lectins which are super inflammatory. Since ghee is clarified butter most of that is removed. If you are going to eat cheese and butter try to get those from cow from the southern parts of Europe or search for cows that produce cassein a-2.

This will not work for someone just starting low carb. I have no hunger. I am keto adapted. That is why I designed the 22 Day Weight Loss Program. It really is an induction program in which your body will gradually get into ketosis. The higher your fasting insulin is the more difficulty you will have adapting. I really want everyone to understand that anyone can get fat adapted. Humans are designed to be this way. All the chronic diseases of our modern society will melt away if you make the effort to do this. Next blog ketogenic diet day 7.
