#ketogenic diet: week 5

I’m at the 5 week mark today. This week went MUCH better than the previous one. After a real low spot leading into the 4 week mark, I was getting discouraged. However, after re-emphasizing fat and trying again to make sure I didn’t over-emphasize protein, I felt much better. Two more tricks have been 1) trying to make sure I get enough salt (thanks, bullion cubes!) and 2) a Fourthmeal/snack about an hour before bed. Altogether, I have had much more energy upon waking, and I haven’t had any malaise/run-down feeling this last week. It had been getting particularly bad in the evenings. So, it looks like I’ll try to keep this up at least through the KC Marathon to see how it affects performance!
