5 days of very low carbs.
Weight is stable…kind of surprised I’m not losing.
Today I ate dairy free to see how it would feel. Felt about the same. I ate a ton of spinach to get my calcium.
I do notice I need to consciously intake sodium or I start to feel crappy. I’m not sure if this is a transitory thing or if this is just how it is now.
Fasting blood sugar is still high – in the 150s. Post prandial sugars are improving. 2 hours after breakfast was 148 (down from my fasting level of 156), and 2 hours after lunch was 105. I’m not sure why my fasting numbers are so high. Something having to do with cortisol maybe? But I have, like, no cortisol to speak of.
Overall I’m feeling really good. I’ve increased DHEA back to 4, and then 5 drops per day (heading toward 6, which was my prescribed dose). Energy is really good. Mood is edgy – I’m not depressed but I notice I’m a little mood swingish – only when I’m hungry though. I feel hungry more often now that I’ve restricted my diet. Sometimes I just don’t know what to eat or I’m somewhere without many options. I wish the hunger would go away. I forget about eating all the time until my body protests. I hate that people think fat people are all guttons and pigs. I would love to not have to eat.
