Guess what? Yeah, got home late again after collecting 10 big “dino bones” from a friend and staying 2.5 hours at the dog park in the evening. Had to make my last meal for the day at close to 10 PM and then hitting the bed just before 11 PM. Didn’t sleep too well and woke up at 5 AM as clockwork. Yeah, I usually don’t sleep in on weekends when I […]

Thursday, June 23. Day 12 – MCT-“fasting”:

Day "zero", day 5, and day 10. Day “zero”, day 5, and day 10. Next photo update in “Day 15: the Aftermath”.

It’s that day again – my third day of complete fasting from protein. I’ll only have about 20 grams of MCT oil today. The MCT’s support a deeper ketosis and provide immediate energy because they are able to cross the double mitochondrial membrane very rapidly and do not require the presence of carnitine to do so (as other fatty acids does). This results in the production of excess acetyl-coA which breaks down into ketones. Also, the shortest 8-carbon medium-chain triglycerides (Caprylic Acid) within MCT […]

Saturday, June 18. Day 7 – MCT-“fasting”:

Weighted in at 71.1 kg (156.4 lbs) today, another 200 grams (0.44 lbs) less than yesterday. The decline in body weight seems rather constant at the moment, but I expect a larger drop by tomorrow.
Since I’ve been training four days in a row, I have a MCT-“fast” with no protein today, and the fact that I have so much else going on I my life for the moment, I decided to take the day off from the gym.

I had one cup of coffee in the morning and one in the forenoon. Only 5 g of MCT oil in each cup. Also took a longer morning walk with my wolfdog, and at 1 PM we took a 4 km (2.5 miles) bike ride to meet up with some friends […]

Wednesday, June 15. Day 4 – ketogenic diet:

This night I woke up a couple of times around 1 AM to 3 AM and I only got about an hour of deep sleep. I did however wake up at 5:05 AM full of energy and I’m not the least tired.
My morning body weight was down 0.8 kg (1.8 lbs) since last morning. I’ve lost some additional subcutaneous water and my glycogen stores are now pretty depleted. I’m currently at 71.8 kg (158 lbs), so my body weight is down by 1.7 kg (3.74 lbs) since the start this past Sunday. Please note that my morning weight on Saturday, when I took my before photo was 72.8 kg, but my morning weight on Sunday when I started the diet was 73.5 kg (162 lbs.) During the last week before the diet experiment, my […]

Sunday, June 12. Day 1 – fat “fasting”:

The Diet Experiment The “before photo” from Saturday morning.

Woke up at 5:10 AM and, as I always do, had a full glass of water with a teaspoon of sea salt and a half teaspoon of bicarbonate. 20 minutes later I had my first cup of coffee with 5 grams of MCT oil. I had a total of 5 of these during the day until 5 PM. I added about 5 grams of butter to the last cup. At 7 PM and 9 PM I had 5 grams of hamp oil, 5 grams of coconut oil, and 3 grams of omega-3.
No solid foods at all this day. No protein and no carbs.

Starting weight this Sunday morning was 73.5 kg (162 lbs.), a slight increase from yesterday’s weigh-in […]
