Low Carb Charlie - From Morbidly Obese to Wow!

Back Into Ketosis and Chocolate PB2 Butter Covered Bacon

It takes me approximately 5 days of being good with my low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet and some exercise in order to get back into nutritional ketosis (aka”fat-burning beast mode”) after a high-carb binge on Christmas.  I scored a 1.5 mM/L ketone and 71 mg/dL blood glucose reading today 3+ hours after playing racquetball. My public MyFitnessPal food and exercise log is here.

Tomorrow I’ll be experimenting with some chocolate PB2 powder (85% cacao), thick-cut bacon, KerryGold Irish butter, water, and a little Truvia/Nectresse, inspired by this recipe for chocolate covered bacon from the YourLighterSide website.  Some unfortunate souls on New Year’s Eve will be guinea pigs. Wish me (or should I say “them”) luck!

    The classic therapeutic ketogenic diet was developed for treatment of paediatric epilepsy in the 1920s and was widely used into the next decade, but its popularity waned with the introduction of effective anticonvulsant drugs. In the mid-1990s, Hollywood producer Jim Abrahams, whose son’s severe epilepsy was effectively controlled by the diet, created the Charlie Foundation to promote it.^.*’
