Food – ketosis – basics

Leave a comment

This is comprehensive blog about Ketogenic stuff. It is what I based my ketogenic eating on. A Guide to Ketosis

I have been in ketosis, two years next year. I control my blood glucose by the way I eat.

I eat fat.

But I don’t eat the cheese that is in Joseph Arcita’s  guide. I don’t stick to it food by food – but just see I am eating enough fat to use as fuel and not consuming my own muscle.

I do not do the “training” he speaks of – but on a Thursday I go swimming and I really work exhaustively hard -and then slowly recover over the following week. I use the Paleo exercise principle. Run sometimes, jump sometimes, pick up heavy things sometimes, get very tired sometimes. But not every day.

It’s really easy to eat too much on the Paleo way of eating if you are inclined to overweight. Paleo by itself is not “slimming” if you eat loads of fruit, nuts and dried foods. Or Almond bread!

I have bacon and egg for breakfast – sometimes with Aubergine (holds fat well) or fried banana. I have coffee with loads of double cream.

Because the fat in my breakfast and coffee reduces appetite, I am seldom hungry. I often skip lunch. Or I have a few raisins or a tiny bunch of grapes or one piece fruit.

Supper is a small piece fish in cream and butter with wilted spinach – or raw spinach doused in lemon juice.

or  finely sliced liver garlic and cream  with green salad and lemon juice

or beef peppers fried in coconut oil or butter gee with cabbage drenched in butter.

I often have the GAPS bone broth for lunch.

Too much protein pushes up my blood sugar and I eat very little fruit. I fall into ketosis very easily.

I try to eat erratically as a hunter gatherer would. I cheat sometimes – and that’s extra lovely!  It’s cheating every day that causes problems.

Uncontrolled diabetes  is a horrible illness. I get great pleasure from eating – and keeping diabetes away.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
