Nitara's Journal, 11 Jan 17

So, this is not a failure. We purchased a new scale, and that is what it showed me to be this morning. The old scale showed 85.2kg which mean .2kg loss. I am updating this with the new scale and will continue using that.

On another note, I think I completely blew my carb allowance, not intentionally. I made some food last night, and when I wanted to enter it today, I started calculating what I put in it and how much each portion is going to cost me carb wise. Oh boy!

All the ingredients are allowed on induction. However, I think they are too many at one go, which is one of the things to be avoided. Sigh!

I will see the effects tomorrow I suppose. Oh, also I think I did not lose as much today because I could not sleep last night. Got like three hours then I was up till the morning and back to work. Hate it when that happens.

That's the pits, I have had my scales for years and just won't listen to any other I think mine shows 1.5 kilos lighter than what I really am. Don;t worry about the carbs, you will do better tomorrow, its all in the knowledge don;t you think? Now that you know how many carbs were in the meal, you won't do that again! :-) By the way, how many carbs do you set for yourself per day?

Hello annemiekehendrika I think with the scale, it is mostly about the difference between the numbers. If the number is going down, all sweet :) I am in Induction now (Atkins) so the allowed carb is 20. I have to do that at least for two weeks until my body adapts to the diet. At the end of the two weeks, I will make the decision to continue with that or go on to the next phase.

What is the next phase?

you are doing well with your Carbs... I dont; seem to want to eat,my daughter is a PT and she wants me to eat more carbs, darn hard when you are doing Atkins or the Ketone Diet.. I would rather stick to the 20 carbs also, I have Ketone sticks and I am showing less Ketones then when I did this diet years ago...

Next phase would be OWL (Ongoing Weigh Loss). So you add five carbs to the 20 per week and monitor your progress, if still losing add another 5 and so on. Until you find out the number of carbs that you can eat and lose weight, he refers to it as CCLL ( Critical carbohydrate level for losing). You will stay at that level until "Pre-maintenance phase" and the graduate to "lifetime maintenance." I potentially will stay on Induction for about four months and then move to the other phases.

I never used Ketone sticks, are they a good tool?

Yes, because i think they help when you feel you have done bad on a day, and instead of blowing your diet you can find out that you are actually burning ketones, which gives you incentive to keep going, well it does for me :-)
