Calories Up, Carbs Down

If you’ve been following along, the last two days I’ve spiked up my carbohydrate intake above 200g and I’m watching to see if this pushes my body out of ketosis. Yesterday I estimated my daily carbs at about 215g so the question is, “Did I test in a ketogenic state this morning?” Well the answer is yes!

Today’s calorie intake measured a bit higher than normal but included significantly fewer carbs than the previous two days–a more normal carbohydrate load for me. In general my diet followed my version of Primal/Paleo eating with lots of real food, minimal sugar and no grains or processed food.

In keeping with my habit of intermittent fasting, I kept my eating inside an eight hour window with the intention of keeping my glucose levels low outside the window and forcing my body to burn stored fat as fuel. This is part of my strategy to stay lean!

I finally got a full night of sleep–this week’s sleep numbers have been horrible, I’ve got to do better!

I hope your weekend is going great and, as always…

Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
