For the past year or so, I've been doing various versions of no-sugar, no-carb / low-carb dieting. I've found it really helpful for my health, energy, weight, and general well-being. And for the most part really easy and tasty.
I've been going on the assumption that these dietary practices have been activating the ketosis metabolic response, and the resulting health gains supposedly associated with that. But I don't know that for sure.
So like a good scientist, I'm going to experiment. For the next couple of weeks I'm going to be re-introducing healthy carbs into my diet, just for one meal a day, to see if it has any impact on anything. Still following the no-sugar practice, outside of my cheat day. And continuing to eat a high-protein, high-veg diet.
I started yesterday with a delicious taco and a pupusa for lunch in the Mission. Today I'm getting brown rice with my usual poke bowl. Woah.
