You might remember that I had a little setback last week.  I decided to stick with it, and start using coconut and MCT oil more regularly.  I did not make any fat bombs, but I did have the oil every day.  Im not sure if it was this that turned the tide, but the tide definitely turned, and I have made progress this week.

Its been seven weeks since I started my experiment with nutritional ketosis.  I am eating higher fat, lower protein and very low carb.  Here are my charts:

In summary, in the past 7 weeks:
I lost 1/2" around my neck
I lost 3/8" around my bicep
I lost 1/4" around my bust
I lost 1-3/8" around my midriff
I lost 2-3/4" around my waist
I lost 1-3/4" around my navel
I lost 1-5/8" around my hips
I lost 1/2" around my thigh
I lost 3/8" around the calf

I lost 8 pounds on the scale (lost 9.5 pounds of body fat and gained 1.5 pounds of lean mass).
I went down 4.7 percentage points on my body fat.
I went down 0.037 points on my waist-to-hip ratio.

I tracked my food every day this week.  If you want to know exactly what I am eating, look here, and then you can click the page numbers at the bottom to see each individual day.

Here are the averages of what I ate this past week:

1456 calories
128.7g fat (79.6%)
51.2g protein (14.1%)
23.2g carbs (6.4%)

My goal was a little higher, and I did not intentionally eat less:

1539 calories
135g fat (79%)
54g protein (14%)
27g carbs (7%)

I stopped testing my blood ketones and glucose because the results are always the same and the strips are expensive.  After a few weeks go by, Ill test again for good measure.  If something starts going wrong, I will test sooner, but for now, I dont see a reason to test.

At this point, it looks like Im going to eat this way from now on, so Im not calling it an experiment anymore.  I will continue to post my results once a week until I hit my goal.
This is my goal:
136 pounds scale weight
40.8 pounds body fat (30%)
95.2 pounds lean mass (70%)
11.875" neck
28" waist
39.125" hips
0.716 waist-to-hip ratio
To get there, I need to lose 4.5 pounds of body fat, gain 1.1 pounds of lean mass and lose 2" around my waist.
