I do think reading all the research is interesting! I just question whether the first response to a carb craving should be “eat carbs!” And I have to say, the human body continuously amazes me.


Ditto.. and it is one of the reasons I'm enthusiastic now. I'm feeling like treating myself as a lab rat and it becomes a bit detached from the eternal 'I have to lose weight since I'm obese and am having health problems because of it' and 'you're a stupid asshole for allowing yourself to slip down the ladder and eat that ..... (cake, ice cream, etc.). No matter how often I told myself that I 'deserved' that treat, I kept feeling guilty. This article about leptin has worked wonders for my mood.. I only am wondering whether the carbs should be high or low on the GI index.
I can't tell whether I go out of ketosis for too long when I do those carb up days. I'm still consuming the carby stuff in my house that won't keep well for long and will then do the induction phase (?) which is, what I understand limited to just 20 grams of carbs/day. I have upped to protein intake from 1,7 g/kg wt to 2,0 g/kg wt which is what I read in the CKD parameter calorie counter.
Also to avoid taking too much extra fat.. I've bought flax seed oil and the smell alone makes me want to puke. :-(((((
I am not prepared to take more than 1 spoonful a day, my taste buds are very delicate!

I will keep eating low carb until I am in ketosis, so it may very well be that I will exclude carbs for 2 weeks. OTOH, the menu will be shattered both next week and in November: there's a 3-day trip to Belgium ahead and a 16-day trip to Portugal (cycle-touring).
I will try to stick more or less faithfully to the diet...

There are a few interesting discoveries I made when planning my meals though. I didn't know there was so much protein in cheese. Fresh cheese like quark and cottage cheese has very little fat and very little carbs too. For the fat I thought about adding pecan nuts, but discovered that grated cocos has less carbs and more fat/100 grams.. I'd never thought that since it appears to be so sweet!
