Since finding out that the Omega 6's have a half-life
that is measured in years.... (that's right)
I might have to extend my original plan.
I have had salmon and/or taken the fish oil for nearly 100 days now.
I have lowered my Omega 6's as well.
It's not always a 1:1 ratio. But about 2:1 average.
The ratio isn't as important as keeping the total lower.
I am down around 5 % total pufa now... most days.
And that means about 5 to 7 grams of pufa's a day.
(Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids)
And I just want to say that I am an unhappy camper!
WOW - I am tired too!
I am getting some labs drawn later this month.
IF my energy hasn't picked up by then,
I am not sure what I shall do.
I also started taking iron.
Maybe it will kick in soon.
My hair and nails seem stronger.
I feel stronger, too. Bigger muscles.
I had inadvertently gone VLC
(Very Low Carb) and also LowCalorie.
I am not "carborexic" but it seemed that way!
When you are deep in the heart of ketosis,
it's common that there is no hunger!
No signal at all. So I kinda went with it!
Many days I would get under 1000 calories.
And sometimes under 10 carbs a day.
That is good... and not so good!
Atkins himself said we should not stay in
Induction (20 carbs a day) for ever!
So I ramped up the carbs... more non-starchy veggies.
And even a few of the starchy ones!
More or less 40 a day with a few days higher... a few lower.
Atkins himself (I'm not on Atkins "per se!")
like the starchy carbs for Pre-Maintenance..
The conversion of protein to glycogen is ok
It's Nursing school 101... Gluconeogenesis.
But probably good to go out of that from time to time.
The liver and muscles need to get a little help
from the diet - when it comes to carb intake.
So that's my update!
2012 is off to a great start!
