44.1% body fat
Here’s what I ate:
Breakfast – IP Vanilla Shake
Lunch – 8 oz chicken (+ sea salt + pepper + cajun seasoning + Frank’s Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce) + 2 c lettuce + 1 c pickles
Dinner – IP Chicken Noodle Soup Mix (+ sea salt + pepper + garlic powder) + 1/2 c broccoli + 1/2 c celery
Snack – IP Crispy Cereal + IP Cookies ‘N’ Cream Bar + 9 oz Powerade Zero (mixed berry) + 1 Crystal Lite (strawberry energy)
+ Over twelve 8 oz cups of H20 (Thats over 96 oz of water)
No exercise – Since I’m still within the first 4 weeks of protocol
Took my prescription meds + IP Multi-Vitamin + IP Calcium-Magnesium Supplement
Today went okay! I did feel generally fatigued which comes with the territory of transitioning into ketosis. Today gets a 7 out of 10 for a couple of reasons:
My Thorns – After pictures, don’t often take half naked pictures of myself, but when I do :/. Also not a fan of the IP Crispy Cereal, it was VERY sweet, like Sweet N Low sweet. If you decide on this one DON’T add Splenda/Stevia. It tasted a lot like Kashi Cereal that had been infused with some serious sucrose so if that’s your thing go for it.
As I said, fatigued for a good part of the day (maybe 80%), tired, body aches/soreness, and a little hungry at the very end of the day – probably because I finally stopped eating before 9 pm. I’ve heard these symptoms of entering ketosis called the “induction flu” and yeaahh, I’d say that nearly qualifies.
And last, but not least, hiccups! Off and on for a good HICCUP! amount of the day (maybe 20%) which is a lot to be HICCUP! ing. HICCUP!
My Roses – Ketosis transition symptoms mean I’m almost in ketosis! YAY! Also, I cut up and wrapped my already buffalo cooked chicken in lettuce and drizzled with even more Frank’s Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce! SO good that I’m still trying to decide if I like this or Wing’s And More better.
