I am now in the next digit (watch out Leigh and Rae Rae - here I come :-)
I think I have gotten myself into a mild state of ketosis.
I can tell because I have a slightly bad taste in my mouth which is what happened with Atkins when I tried it a few years ago. I was also tired and my breath could have peeled wallpaper. It has been very gradual as I do not go as extreme as Atkins does at the beginning.
This article does state that the body does adapt to burning fat for fuel. I guess I just don't see the need to be so uncomfortable getting there. We WANT to burn fat for fuel. That is why I sing the praises of low carb.
I was having trouble viewing my blog this morning - I kept getting the message that "no site was configured at this address" - I could view my comments and stats but not my blog. Any suggestions?
My mother was taken to the hospital Friday night. We think it was a TIA. This will be her second one. A family member called her and noticed her speech wasn't right and asked if she needed help. She said she did but couldn't think of the number to call so an ambulance was sent. Her speech has gradually improved and she doesn't stumble over words like she was Friday evening in the emergency room. She is having a carotid ultrasound tomorrow. The four of us kids have decided she should not live alone anymore. We just buried her sister. She has lost three of her sisters now and there is Mom and two more sisters left. Seems like we have several fellow bloggers with health concerns in the family. It is a source of comfort knowing that people we have never met personally are always ready with support and encouragement regardless of the situation.
Have a blessed Sunday.
