Long time no post…

Sorry for not updating in a while. I have no good excuse for not writing the reports for you guys who have a bit of a problem with Swedish. From today I will try to post daily on both blogs again.

I have started measuring my ketons in the blood. Several of us low cabers in Sweden have followed Jimmy’s example and got ourselves a good tool.

To my surprise I have really low levels of ketons and in the coming weeks I will try to increase the levels to the “optimum” of 1,5-3,0. My first test a couple of days ago showed me a value of only 0,5. This morning I was at 0,7.

The tips I have got is to reduce my protein and increase the fat even more. I have tried to be at 75% fat, 24% protein and 1% carbs. I will try to get to 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carbs for a couple of weeks to see if I can get into a true fetburning ketosis…

My weight has increased some during the summer and I “peaked” the other day at 89kg. It’s the highest weight in a very long time so something has to be done… True ketosis is the way to go I guess.

Today I started with a breakfast of two slices of low carb bread with thick slices of butter (total 50g). Really nice with the toasted bread and the butter.

For dinner I had some “aubergine-skagen” as a starter…

…and then a pork shop with wooked vegitables for main.

The nutritions for today ended up at:

I have also been experimenting with my bloodsugar levels and today I got some so called low carb things to test. I actually tried some of the chocolate and it was not very tasty. But I will have to endure for the “science”…

  1. Glad to see you back Tommy! How do you cook your pork chops? Your food always looks so tasty!

      Thanks,

      The are just fried in butter on medium heat. Salt and black pepper as seasoning. Plain and simple… I use the “upper part” of the pork loin. Not sure what the part is called in English. It’s the same part as the Entrecôte on a cow… 🙂

    Is that low carb bread homemade or store bought? If homemade, can you share the recipe?
    Thanks, Tommy! Your website has been so helpful.
