Potatoes. Rice. English muffins. No, no and NO!
It's not about how much I weigh now, it's about how I *feel*. Out of ketosis, the mind is sluggish, the body aches, and sleep comes slowly. And hunger is constant... Niggling. Oppressive. But it's a fine balancing act to maintain a healthy appetite and getting nutrients, and maintain the loss. I'm a carb addict, no doubt about it. Take me to a bakery, and I will kill for a baguette.
I'm back in ketosis, and happy to learn that my sister (18 months older) is following me in it. The last time we saw each other after 5 years, she, who is 5 inches shorter than me, outweighed me by a good 10 pounds. She told me this week that my loss inspired her to go keto. That, in turn, inspired me to get back to strict keto. She's coming to see me in 2 weeks, and I can't let her down.
I've been spending my free time watching documentaries and lectures on the origins of humans. How we were genetically engineered by the 'gods'...the Anunaki. Google it. :P
I have a cantaloupe in the dehydrator, to share with my co-workers. Fruit is also one of the 'forbidden fruits' on my list. I bought it when I was experimenting with maintenance, and discovered that it raised my insulin response badly. So I'll make candy out of it for others to enjoy.
Time for a cuppa and bed, now. Have a great weekend, friends and followers

I've been reading about the gods on the web. Interesting! I've been thinking about whether I'm a carb addict but I don't think I am. I'm just a food addict 😊
