    1.) Fasting glucose under 100 every day. Didn't check! Oops!
    2.) Move my body 3 days a week minimum. Resting for my half marathon Saturday
    3.) Electrolytes. Nuf said. :)
    4.) Stay under 20gm net carbs daily :)
    5.) IF 5 days a week. :) fat fast works for me


    SW: 163lbs
    CW: 149 lbs (maybe inaccurate)
    GW: under 130

    I felt really good about today. I was very energetic, mind felt sharp, and I made a kick *kitten* dinner (low carb lasagna). I will see tomorrow if the weight loss is actually a thing that happened or if my scale was just being screwy.

    3 Nov:

    Still eating just animal kindom, but got fooled by "gluten free" cheese sauce on my burger at a restaurant today. Got super bloated and crampy shortly after. Called the restaurant. Oh, the cheese sauce contains wheat flour? Good thing I'm not celiac. Very misleading of them :'(

    Oh well. Lesson learned; ask detailed questions before ordering and never assume waiter knows what a gluten and grain free diet means.

    11/3

    1) Log every thing every day :)
    2) Keep it under 25 net carbs :)
    3) Only step on the scale once each week (the scale makes me crazy) :)
    4) Drink more water than diet coke :)

    Ugh, today was hard but I made it through the day under 25 net carbs. Day 3 back on the wagon and I want carbs, lots and lots of carbs. But, I didn't indulge in the brownies that some evil person left in the break room.. and I didn't call for pizza delivery after the dinner I made was simply horrible... and lets not even talk about the cheddar cheese and pepperoni "chips" that I made tonight that tasted like charcoal. Luckily I found a little peanut butter to wash the taste out of my mouth and satisfy me for tonight. Tomorrow's another day and it will be better. :wink:

    Sauces and commercially fried foods are some of the only sources of contamination in my diet.

    Thing is, if you ask about it then you should get correct information. Like you said, it would have been much worse if you had a severe intolerance/allergy.

    4 Nov:

    I'm still committed to not micro-managing my nutrition. However, I find it easy to make less than optimal food choices without a plan. Today I've set aside my foods I plan to eat.

    I must remember that cheese is a condiment, not a meal. My mantra needs to be eat more meat if still hungry.
