My Low Carb Alternate Day Fasting Experiment - Day 12

I'm feeling quite well this morning. No headache last night. My numbers are quite good - listed below. All told, this little ADF experiment is going reasonably well so far, IMO. Today I'm adding a new wrinkle to the program - exercise. More on that after I actually get it done. :-)

9:20 AM - Blood Pressure: 109/68. Blood Sugar: 68 mg/dL.

9:30 AM - a cup of organic coffee, a spoonful of FOS/inulin and a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

10:30 AM - omega-3 (organic) "cheesy" eggs, a spicy Italian chicken sausage, 3/4 of an organic avocado and my morning supplements

3:30 PM - sliced jicama topped with homemade chicken liver pate and balsamic shallots, a glass of organic red wine + my mid-day supplements

5:00 PM - a cup of organic coffee (black)

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM - treadmill workout and weight machines

7:15 PM - recovery protein shake (1 scoop of sugar-free vanilla whey protein, 6 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 scoops of "chocolate greens", 1 scoop of organic sprouted flax meal and a few drops of organic peppermint extract)

9:00 PM - grilled organic broccoli with a creamy (organic) red pepper dip + nighttime supplements

11:45 PM - Blood Pressure: 111/69. Blood Sugar: 72 mg/dL.

More to come ... I hope!

Sounds great - can't wait to hear about your workout regime. Now that it's cooler outside, I've gone back to walking, as well...

I'll describe it in today's blog, Anne. Pretty basic. I like things to be straight forward whenever possible.

Eggsellent! Getting walking, girl! :-)
