...to promote fasting! :-) I haven't had much of an appetite for days -- in fact, the first 48 hours of this, i consumed nothing but coffee, clear broth, a little coconut-milk-based hot chocolate, water, and supplements. My weight hasn't reduced much, though, as i feel significant slow-down of my metabolism.
My breath-meter for ketones, however, is topping out red. (i ran out of the pee-strips, which report more precisely.) Even after a higher-carb dinner last night -- which was primarily rice-crackers with duck-liver pate and pickled beets -- i'm "in the red" this morning, proving that very-low-calorie diets can be ketogenic, even if there's a high PERCENTAGE of carbohydrate in them. NOT something i'd want to do regularly, though!
I'm going to try to eat a little more today and see if i can get rid of the light-headedness (which may be related to the inflammation in my sinuses, too) before i have to report for jury duty tomorrow morning, bright and early (EEEEK). ...Maybe if i sneeze on the judge i'll get sent home?
