Ah, that looks interesting -- I've been meaning to try dairy kefir (I keep an active culture of water grains that I've had going for about a year, which I drink occasionally after a fresh cracked coconut water + ginger 12-24hr low-alcohol ferment.) That could potentially be a decent source of calcium for me on some days. I was also thinking about fat-free mozzarella... although, I have seen some articles that make a good case against low-fat dairy products -- annoying finding the compromise between different health goals and tastes / habits.Kitano wrote:Since I crave a creamy dairy, like you, I am finding nonfat kefir satisfying.

I’m really, really careful about what I eat and tightly control my blood sugar, but the insulin resistance score on my last lipid profile was high (47). This is despite the fact that I’m in ketosis and my a1c has dropped to 4.9. kitano notes that a1c is likely to correlate with insulin resistance score on the lipid panel. Has anyone else not seen a correspondence between their insulin resistance score and their a1c level? Despite my diet, my triglycerides have also remained too high (68). I’ve got some weird kind of diabetes, and I think that this is probably the root of my lipid problem at this point. Wish I could find a doctor who would address this. To date I have not been able to do so, but I'm still looking.

But I can’t tolerate any rapid acting carbs at all without huge elevations in glucose (similar to the effect that one would see in a type 1 diabetic).
