Re: Phats Online Diary Unplugged
Im finally disciplined enough to make another run at fat adaptation. This time it is primarily for spiritual reasons and health reasons. My legs are swollen and the doctor tells me to go low Carb...but it isn't easy.

Day one was Sunday. The experts say that it will take me up to 4 days of low Carb(20 to 40 grams of carb/sugar maximum daily) to achieve fat adaptation and up to 3-6 weeks to achieve full Ketogenic adaptation. I'm determined to the point of obsession...I need to regain control of my health. Once I switch back to burning fat mainly, I will balance my diet with vegetables, less meat and more nuts. Watch how nutty I get when my ketone fueled brain starts extrapolating spirituality.

Re: Health progress?
Hi Lammy! Yes I can say that progress is slow but is again happening. Note that it took over 3 months from when you made this post Message 11 before you are now hearing back from me. I am on Day#3 of my Lo-Carb/Intermittent Fasting plan, and am noticing some positive change. Here is a video that I made 2 weeks ago when I just read that book, 3 Theories Of Everything by Ellis Potter.
Note several things.
1) I am scatterbrained and, though apparently trying to "be intellectual" am having dissociative rambling thoughts. The typical Hi Carb diet which I am on a majority of my life is unhealthy and in fact destructive to me. Also note how messed up my apartment is behind me. My legs were swollen, my energy was being propped up by caffeine and the sugar-based diet that was wrecking my health.
