January 21, 2010 – It’s the morning of day four and now down 6lbs – 168.5lbs. This is the second day of ketosis, and as expected, I lost 1% body fat. Now down to 22% (home scale) 14% *(Omron fat-loss monitor). If this keeps up, I’ll be to my goal weight and BF% in no time at all. The best part is that I feel great and I am eating nutritious, real food.
The great thing about being in ketosis is the natural high you get. Everything is very clear and my clarity of thought is much better. The reason being is that Ketones function as “brain fuel.” The major role of ketone bodies, their real name, is to supply an alternative (to glucose) fuel for the brain in situations where there are little or no carbohydrates available from food.

I know I can’t keep this up forever but I will stick with until my goal is reached.
*From now on I will only be using the Omron to monitor my body fat loss, as it is far more accurate. I will check the home scale for percentage loss accuracy.
