I have a question:
I have been BP for a month or so now, (full time,) and according to ketostix am in ketosis a lot of the time. I refeed every two to three days, sometimes four days. I refeed deliciously with sweet potato, and on that day I eat carrots and grapefruit at night. (Or chocolate, whatever other carbs.)
I notice that I have been kind of not deeply into ketosis, according to the colour of the ketostix. Something must be knocking me out. Today, for instance -- after my refeed last night, I had BP coffee with lots of MCT and Brain Octane, as well as butter AND ghee. Very fatty indeed. Then, I had lunch -- tuna with lots of MCT and olive oil, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and turmeric. Also, a hard-boiled egg. And some coconut chips, raw, organic, etc.. According to the stix, I am barely if at all in ketosis now. That stumps me, because I've had no sugar-causing foods as far as I can tell, and more MCT than I usually have.
So, what do you think might be kicking me out in ketosis, or not allowing me to go deeper, and what should I do in your opinion to get there?
Oh, one more thing -- after lunch, I had the tiiiiniest sliver of raw ginger -- I mean like literally a taste on the tip of a butter knife, and a small piece of cinnamon, like a 1mm by 4mm piece -- a sliver.
