Today turned out to be a normal day shift day. BH woke up early, offered to cook breakfast, and I couldn't decline. I ate the lunch meat and cheese I took Friday for "just in case" and I ate supper after getting home tonight.

We'll see what happens this next set of graveyard shift.

First night of this graveyard shift went OK. Went 24 hours with only tea, coffee, and water. Being busy walking into a late planned outage on one of the boilers did pass the time quickly. We'll be starting back up tonight, so I may not have to think of food.

I did manage to knock myself out of ketosis while off, not sure exactly how, but it wasn't a bucket of ice cream. LOL. I think it was mixed nuts, trail mix, and popcorn.

Got home this morning and BG was 137, ketones were 0.4, and 3 green blinks on the Ketonix. Got up this afternoon and BG was 111, I didn't check ketones, and was 2 green blinks. After eating 4 ballpark franks with wolfbrand chili, cheese, onions, and pickles, along with a salad with about a half a box of craisens, my BG was 161. EEK. I wish I had an insulin meter, sounds like my pancreas is being lazy.

We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Got home this morning after night #2, BG was 141, blood ketones 1.5, but Ketonix stayed blue. Before bed yesterday and today, drank 40 grams of potato starch mixed in water as prebiotic. This afternoon when I got up my BG was 114, blood ketones 0.4, and 5 green blinks on the Ketonix.

Today's meal is crockpot roast beef, brocolli with ghee and coconut oil, and a salad.

Probably more informative on potato starch than a YouTuber who's tried it twice would be Tim Steele.

Check the label on the chili. We have chili on Tuesday night and one serving (1/2 can) is 39 carbs. My blood sugar is always higher the next morning.

I'm gonna have to look. I haven't checked before because it never did that in the past, maybe a recipe change. All the more reason for me to make some more homemade chili to keep on hand.

Also more info on resistant starches on Free the Animal. Just be forewarned, they are not pro LC, nor diabetic.

I start 4 nights of graveyard shift tonight and will start back on the OMAD plan tomorrow.

After doing some reading on Tim Steele's site about the potato hack diet, I may give it a try to see the results over 4 days with a slight modification. The main goal of the diet, per the creator, is weight loss and suggest eating only plain cooked potatoes for every meal for a few days, no salt, pepper, butter, sour cream, etc., no fats, if you can. I'm going to try it OMAD with my retrograded potato salad (has mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, onion, pickles, pickle juice, and ACV in it) and I will be having fats in my 2 cups a day of BP coffee. I'll be putting potato starch on it as well.

I'll be interested in the weight loss, if any, and of course the affects on my BG. I am going to stick it out if my BG does not go over 200 and see if there is lowering of BG over the course of 4 days.

I like them too as usually their rendition of a recipe is best for me.
