Miraculum's Journal, 05 June 2018

My average macros for May:
Fat: 129.93g, Protein: 59.05g, Carbs: 85.97g
My average macros for June, so far:
Fat: 109.12g, Protein: 43.92g, Carbs: 24.42g

Kickin' a$$ and takin' names!

Even though "they" say to not to consider "net" carbs, I'm keeping track of those this month, too, and that average is under 18g!

My cheats in May really took their toll, wrecking my weight loss progress, but I'm back on track. I made a decision that June was going to be a different story.

For dinner today, I made "Keto French Quiche" from the "Recipes" collection at DietDoctor.com. It was delicious!

My husband bought flowers for me last week, remarking, "You've become a lot more 'domestic' doing this LCHF/keto thing!" Understand: This was a high compliment. All my "domestication" traits were in the tip of my right pinkie finger -- which I sliced off while working in a supermarket deli in the 1970s!

Your progress looks good! I also count total carbs, because I seem to have a sensitive reaction to ALL carbs.

Moomgiesmynes, I have to consider total carbs when dosing Humalog. My body "reads" all of it, as far as treating diabetes goes. I've read about the "cephalic effect" -- that even *thinking* about high-carbohydrate foots can increase production of insulin! That said, it makes sense to me that carbohydrate tied up in indigestible fiber passes through the GI system "intact," and that it would *not* impact insulin production and serum glucose levels. That's a mystery to me. I like the idea of keeping track of the "net carbs," though, just for fun!
