I need more. I can't fit any more veggies in. A nice bowl of rice or pasta would be helpful, but I know that that is not ok on keto. I woke up in the middle of the night hungry, this morning starving. Dinner was over at 6:00 (bed at 9:00). I lost 3 pounds, and based upon prior weeks, it will take me the rest of the week to regain that.

Just to clarify - the .5 - 1.0 readings have all been later in the day. I will do a reading on a "normal eating" day first thing in the morning to get a baseline.
Julie - you and my doc know each other well. She does this work full-time, and she is devoted and brilliant. I feel lucky to have found her.
She simplified it for me with this: 75% above ground vegetables, fill the rest with healthy fats (evoo, avocados) and protein. That seemed doable.

Fasting glucose….I must have this. We did $$$$ worth of tests, but I do not see it.
I am trying this keto thing again today and tomorrow. I am going to dial down the veggies to make more room for food with calories. For exercise after all the gyms closed, I started walking up a nearby fire trail. I do this 2 – 4 times a week. It is a beautiful walk with a challenging hill. But on the one Wednesday morning that I tried to make it up the hill, I couldn’t do it. I was exhausted and freezing cold. Since then, I have not even tried after 2 days of keto. This time I will make sure I get more calories, and hopefully I will feel better. Thanks for all the help.
