"It's very scary to get cholesterol results that you didn't expect and that you proactively tried to avoid. I had the same problem when I started eating Bernstein's way. I was put on statins temporarily for three months during which I…"

"Wow! Seems like something is wrong here as your triglycerides should definitely fall on low carb diet (even if other fats go up) but yours have gone up which (I believe) is strange. 1) What has happened to your HbA1c over the year - it should have…"

i am finally low carbing

Hello, some of you might know me from my earlier posts. A week ago I started reducing my carb intake. For the last four days I have been eating around 30g of carbs per day. i feel good, I do not any side effects and my blood sugars are great. I measured my ketones yesterday and they were 0.3 mmol/l. they will probably get higher in about 10 to 15 days. Did any of you measure ketones when you started this diet and if you did how long did it take to get in to ketosis.See More
