When you implement a caloric restriction it weakens cancer cells, because they don't get enough food. It makes them tired and cranky, and weak, and it makes it hard for them to repair themselves. So my plan was to stay within the ketogenic principals, and drink lots of water, and eat as little possible for the days after the shot to potentiate the effects of the NDV. So yesterday I ate 270 calories, and today I only ate 282. I'm not strong enough to endure a water-only fast, so this is the next best thing for me.
In the past few weeks I have been hovering in the 80-90 range for my fasting glucose (boooo). I've been so stressed about the pathology and all things tumor related that I have been seeing a massive physiological response. Since starting my fast I have remained between 55-65 and today I had my highest ketone reading of 5.1. YESSSSS!!
Staying in Seyried's range is incredibly hard for me. I wish I was better at it, and I continue to try, but I am a food eater, and it's hard to eat a big meal and keep your blood glucose down. Tiny meals seem to be best, but coming as a burrito eating contest winner, it is hard for me to always be hungry.
Anyway, I'm excited to think that I'm helping kill the tumor with my diet. 5.1 is thrilling! I can't wait to see what I get tomorrow.
