Higher Carbs, Still In Ketosis
Friday is here and, despite not getting nearly enough sleep this week, I woke up today feeling great! Yesterday I mentioned consuming more than 200g of carbohydrate (estimated) and wondering if my body would be thrown out of ketosis. Well I’m happy to report I stayed in a ketogenic state according to my Ketonix breath ketone analyzer. What this n=1 experiment says to me is we all have different carbohydrate tolerance levels and, for me, sometimes it’s not necessarily the amount of carbs, but also the type. I have consumed less carbohydrate and been thrown out of ketosis when the carbs are heavy in sugar or processed grains. I also believe physical activity has lots to do with this as well. My workouts have been getting pretty intense as I am in the part of my lifting program where the weights are heavy (for me).
Today I consumed even more estimated carbohydrate at about 215g–darn those chips at Chipotle! Let’s see what tomorrow’s keto test reveals. Otherwise my food choices matched right up with my version of Primal/Paleo.
I hope you had a great week and, as always…
