My Low Carb Alternate Day Fasting Experiment - Day 11

Fast day #5. I decided to take my blood pressure and blood sugar prior to having my morning coffee. Here's what I found today:

Morning Blood Pressure: 116/64. Morning Blood Sugar: 63 md/dL.

Current Weight: 180.6 lbs. Starting Weight: 185.6 lbs.

Current Body Fat: 23.3%. Starting Body Fat: 23.5%.

The blood sugar reading is quite low but not really in hypoglycemia territory. Hypoglycemic symptoms usually don't present themselves unless blood sugar reaches the low-to-mid 50's.

My meal for today will revolve around a recipe I'm working on for Tuesday's edition of HF. Hopefully it'll turn out well because that's all I'm eating for the day!

9:15 AM - a cup of organic coffee (black)

11:45 AM - a strong cup of organic white tea (3 tea bags)

2:45 PM - homemade (organic) chicken pâté topped with organic (balsamic) grilled shallots and served on fresh jicama slices, a glass of organic red wine (Malbec) + the majority of my daily supplements

4:35 PM - a cup of organic coffee (black)

6:30 PM - a strong cup of organic white tea (3 tea bags)

9:15 PM - a strong cup of organic chamomile tea (3 tea bags)

10:30 PM - Blood Pressure: 100/65. Blood Sugar: 67 md/dL.

More to come ... I hope!

In Nursing, any reading by a machine only means something when it is accompanied by symptoms...

Glad you are well!
5 pounds in 11 days?
Doesn't get better than that!
