There’s a page of preliminary thinking about diet here. Now that I’ve embarked on a dietary project, this is the first of a series of posts to record my progress. It will probably range a bit wider than that though.
Not feeling great today. This is the third day of an attempt to get my body into ketosis, which means relying on fats rather than carbohydrates as the main energy source. To be made to make the switch, it has to run out of carbs, and that’s not a particularly pleasant experience. I was warned about it though by this great article on the subject. (I’m not following the menu plan but the other advice seems great, at least in my current state of relative ignorance.)
That’s about it for now, I’m feeling really low on energy, and also lunchtime approaches! (A fry-up of onion, french beans, courgette, mushrooms and smoked mackerel, following a small organic natural live yogurt.) Meanwhile, though I’m not yet committed to counting either grams or calories, I’ll just copy in this info, my recommended long term macronutrient intake to remain in ketosis.
