    Ketogenic Dieting

    What is Ketogenic Dieting? Per Wikipedia – The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain-function. However, if there is little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis,…

    Weigh-in #15 ~ Meh!

    So this wasn’t such a bad weigh-in, but I did gain, not a lot though, which I am happy about. I gained .04 lbs, not bad right? No, it’s not, but I didn’t want to gain anything at all. I’d rather not lose anything, than gain. But it is only 0.4 lbs, which is a big relief! I’m starting to eat regular meals not so much Lean Cuisine or Smart Ones, I don’t even like Smart Ones anymore, they just don’t have a large enough variety. Healthy Choice is another I like. But I don’t like having to spend extra money to get my meals. I have to learn to…

    Weigh-in #14 ~ Keep on trucking lol

    I’m not really post-dating, I did weigh in yesterday morning, and it’s Sunday today, so I am kind of post-dating the date. I usually call it posting about it, over the same weekend, so yay! Even though I put yesterdays date, just for my own records, so I don’t get confused. I’ve been doing reasonably good, until Friday, when I goofed up. William texted me and asked if I felt like having a Subway, sandwich and I thought yay great! They have healthy sandwiches. We had a Subway sandwich a few weeks before, he asked me to email him what I’d like, and I am always a stickler for details…

    Weigh-in #11 – Surprise, Surprise

    I weighed myself and was happy to see I lost 3.6 lbs, yay. I was super excited. I hate yoyoing, but what am I to do. Just keep going forward. I am still eating the meals from Weight Watchers, Smart Ones, and Healthy Choice, I’m really liking Healthy Choice a lot more, but Weight Watchers has some nice meals too, Smart Ones continue to be a bit boring, but I can’t be too choosy right? I am now seeing more of a change in my body, which makes me so happy, I’ve come a long way to finally be here. Throughout my entire life, I had tried losing weight but…
