Here’s a comparison graph of two weeks before low-carb and two weeks with (mostly) low-carb.
This weekend I ate more carbs because I’m trying to use up food I have rather than buy more. Plus, I was feeling really rough for a couple of days. I’ve read that maybe that may be from electrolytes being off (“Keto flu”), and I have electrolyte tablet things, but I was waiting on hearing back from the company about whether they were safe for me. I finally heard back today (no potato in them and no potato used in the manufacturing facility, yay!) so tonight I’ll go shopping and get back at it.
Over the weekend my allergies in general were just bad. Last night I also had an allergic reaction at dinner (no EpiPen, but I did take Benadryl). Frustrating when I prepare my own meals and still react. It was lentil pasta, black bean “ground beef” that I made from scratch, and tomato sauce. I’m guessing I reacted to the tomato sauce because I react to raw tomato, but I had the exact same meal two nights earlier and was fine.
My next recipe will be a re-try of hte bread I tried earlier in this thread. I’d also like it try making psyllium husk pasta, but I haven’t really looked into how to do that yet. And, if I need a pasta maker machine for it, I need to find one that can fit in a teeny tiny apartment kitchen.
So, overall, things are going well. It’s hard to stick to at times in that I just feel like eating junk food, but overall you’re right, the blood sugar benefits are huge. Hopefully when I give it another try I won’t go back to feeling bad, or if I do, hopefully the tablets I bought will help.
