A better day

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 319

Woke with some forebodings, but after drinking water I ate a few walnuts rather than some grapes like yesterday. That did seem to help, and the dizziness receded.
I ate eggs tomato and green salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing for lunch, and an hour or so later began to feel fairly normal.
Hopefully I will get into ketosis soon.
These last few days I have not lost any weight at all, presumably I have depleted what stores of glycogen I had and any other easily accessible energy stocks, and now I can't start burning fat until my broken metabolism begins to accept that there is dire necessity for it to alter its attitude as to which fuel it is going to use.
