I am sorry. I am not very diligent about ketones. I have this tendency to get hung up on numbers and don’t want the bother. When I get my physical and labs there are trace amounts of ketones in my urine
I don’t count macros so tightly anymore either now that I have my weight and diabetes under control. I estimate no more than 50g of carbs per day. I would like to write 25 but I know that is not the truth. Generally all my carbs come from non-root vegetables and whatever is encountered in nuts, cheese.
I use a small amount of regular ketchup regularly as my guilty pleasure item. 1 Tbsp or so lol… Low carb ice cream too but, over time, my fasting BG will creep up if I eat it regularly. Sometimes it spikes me and some times it doesn’t so it is a caution food. I usually eat it and then ride my bike to help mitigate it.
My primary goals have always been to have a good fasting reading, not to spike during the day, and to maintain a non-diabetic A1c as much as possible. I radically changed my diet and exercise routines early on. Once I established my baseline I learned to let it ride. I still monitor and watch closely since I now know things change over time.
Frankly, it seems like once I went LCHF and started walking, it was like hitting a reset button for my body. The weight really just came off without too much difficulty (100 pounds over 12 months) and my diabetes went into remission (the doctor’s comment). I concentrated on doing the things I like which now includes cycling.
Once again, I am sorry to be so general about this but that is how I work lol…
