I don’t know if there is actually such a thing as a Ketogenic headache, but if there is, I had it today. I woke up with it and it got worse as the day wore on.
I have had sugar detox headaches before but this was the worst ever. Am I detoxing from the carbs in veggies? My dinner included a zuchinni cheese casserole and I felt quite a bit better after that.
So even with the zuchinni cheese dish, I managed to achieve 79/14/7 which is my best ratio to date as I try to achieve nutritional ketosis.
Here is my ketogenic diet food breakdown for the today:
- 1 egg with mayo
- ¼ c half&half
- Macadamia nuts
- 2 oz burger with mayo
- Pork rinds with guacamole
- Zuchinni casserole
- 1/3 c whipped cream jello dessert
This worked out to 1369 calories, 26 g carbs, 121 g fat, 50 g protein, and 15 g fibre. As far as the ratios go, I am aiming for the nutritional ketosis magic of 80% fat, so 79% wasn’t bad. But I am really falling down with getting the protein count up. If there is a magic formula for what to eat to get these ratios, I don’t know what it is yet!
I am really hoping this headache is gone tomorrow!
