Keto Diet Experiment | Nutritional Ketosis | Day 76 Results

Week In Review

Nutritional Ketosis
Nutritional Ketosis – blood ketone levels of approximately .5 to 3.0 mmol/l

Only 2 weeks left in the Ketogenic Diet Experiment, and I can almost see the caramel cheesecake, high-gravity beer cranberry juice covered finish line in sight.

This week I saw an increase in my blood ketone levels after experimenting with a few different carbohydrate sources. and I plan to publish a list of foods soon that may be helpful to some.

One thing worth mentioning is that I didn’t notice any increase in hunger levels after reducing calories last week

Thanks for checking in!

  1. Hi Mark,

    I saw your comment Peter Attia’s blog but figured it would be easier to contact you here. You mention that calories do matter there. I obviously don’t know if they do or not but there are some interesting n=1 experiments out there on overfeeding. Have a look at this thread http://highsteaks.com/forum/health-nutrition-and-science/calories-in-vs-calories-out-overfeeding-underfeeding-46.0.html and Sam Feltham’s experiment where he ate 5700kcal/day on LCHF.

    1. Thanks for sharing. It’s interesting stuff, and I’m sure everyone responds a little bit differently. Although the diet is simple, our bodies are complex systems. I would like to have seen the first example minus the decrease in calories and sodium at the end. Those two things along with hydration can really affect weight in a short amount of time. “But I did try to cut way back on any sodium intake the last several days to shed any water that I may have been holding.” Sam Feltham’s experiment was interesting too. Looking forward to his future tests.

  2. I also found you from your comment on Peter Attia’s blog. I believe in “calories matter”, though I don’t count them to lose weight. I appreciate your self-experiment data, and blog similarly at 2lbsofstarch.com

    Keep sharing your experiences and data!

    1. Stephen, I think counting calories for a fixed period can be really helpful, especially for those who struggle, but not absolutely necessary. Thanks for sharing your blog; I will definitely follow along. Please stay in touch.
