Well, it's official. I'm in ketosis (and it appears to be a safe level)
I've been burning fat slowly for several months so I knew there was some going on but despite my awkward start to this experiment I ramped right up to were I should be. For the next few days I will take 3 or 4 tests a day to check levels: when I wake up, before I eat lunch, a couple hours after lunch and late at night.
Next trick is figuring out a workable diet that gets close to the fat levels I think I should have.
I won't make it today because of the amount of olive oil I'd have to consume. I think, starting tomorrow, I'll add some olive oil to breakfast and lunch.
I am absolutely mortified by the thought of 2300 calories. We shall see.
