Things are slowly getting better. I can think with some clarity now.
I’m still figuring out my current supplement protocol. I figured out which of the gut-healing supplements was causing me to feel terrible and I’m attempting to continue it at a much lower dose. Still headaches though, so I might have to stop it altogether.
Weight is stable at exactly 200.8. I have been eating cheese and sauerkraut periodically – both high in histamine – which may be inflammatory for me right now. So they’re out. It’s hard to stick with just meat, honey, coconut oil, and orange juice. But if that’s what I have to do, I’ll do it.
Fasting blood sugar is stable around 107, despite eating lots of honey and orange juice. Huh…it’s almost as if sugar isn’t the cause of my insulin resistance.
You know, after all I’ve been through in the last year and a half with the ketogenic/low carb/Paleo diets, the supplements, the practitioners and doctors, the highs and lows, I’d have to say I completely understand where Ray Peat is coming from now.
Low carb is stressful on the body, and that’s why I can only keep it up for 5-6 months. I could do it longer if I wasn’t already in a fairly advanced stage of adrenal fatigue. Lately I’ve been eating only monosaccharides to avoid poisoning myself with endotoxin – it’s working. I can again cope with life.
Brain is still a bit compromised – not feeling like I’m able to put sentences together well yet. The words aren’t flowing. So I’ll stop here today.
