|TODAY I AM ORDERING MY SEED FOR NEXT SEASON|
CANNOT WAIT TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL HOME GROWN AGAIN
Hi Folk. I forgot to post this yesterday.
If anyone reading my blog is curious about what a ketogenic diet is and how the term nutritional or dietary ketosis developed there is a good article by Laura Dobson from About Low Carb. Here is the link to the article which explains a ketogenic diet and it's benefits better than I can
Here is Laura Dobson's outline of Atkins Induction. There are many things here that I do not entirely agree with so I'm doing the stage two phase of cycling fat fasting with a normal ketogenic diet my way. I think I have worked out what is best for me and of course there will be adjustments from time to time. Atkins allows more oils eg. to quote "For stir-frying, canola, peanut, and grapeseed oil are recommended, especially if "cold-pressed" or "expeller-pressed".
I just don't use any of those oils preferring butter or coconut oil. Maybe I will try a little of my saved pork fat to try out too. There are a few other things that I would ignore such as the limit on cream and avocados. At this stage I am working out my menus on a calorie and nutrient ratio application while I settle into what is best for me now.
Otherwise I found this article uncomplicates the Atkins program.
There is no point trying to do something you do not understand and does not suit your body and lifestyle. I am beginning to find my feet and can see how what I am doing will work for me in the short term and make it easier to transition to maintenace when that time comes. Because I am determined to remain open and flexible there is no guarantee I will continue with cycling 5 days fat fast with 2 days increased calories, protein and carbs.
The best thing of all is feeling wonderful. I have no intention of doing anything which will compromise how well I feel. Today my plan is to continue the 7 day cycling for August or the next 5 weeks and see how that goes.
