cerobit's Journal, 22 February 2013

holy moly, on this modified atkins diet, it's hard getting enough calories to lose weight at a reasonable rate. What am I going to do when I need to stabilize? And the cost is something to deal with too, massive nos. of eggs,steak, burgers, whole cream & cheeses? who can afford this shopping list?

I'm on this diet to:
1. reduce my serum glucose (I just officially made the diabetic cut, yea)
2. maintain ketosis state to reduce my brain tumor growth...tumors have difficulty metabolizing ketone bodies, at least in mice brains
3. reduce my seizure activity so I can wean off of my 5(!) seizure meds. I call them my downers, but I've been seizure-free for 2 months, better to be wiped out than flopping like a fish on a dock! Hi-fat/low carb diets can lower or eliminate seizures in many folks.

At least its an interesting experiment!

In other news, i did 21mins on my new-used exercise bike today. Advertised"brain tumor patient looking for ex bike donation" on craigslist. Had an email in 40 mins. fella even delivered it w/i 2 hours. awesomeness. gave him an orange blossom honey bear as a token thanks. he will use it in making bread.

Worked medium hard at PT today. highest daily caloric expenditure since i left in patient rehab. Worked around house today, no nap. Really felt good. I know it can change. Tomorrow i might be in bed all day. but, hey, i've got a brain tumor, so Phfttttttt!
