Weight: 170 lb (same as starting weight)
Woke up thirsty in the middle of the night, got a cup of water. Thought this might reflect the “water loss” associated (at least in the literature) with very low-carb diets. The metabolism/breakdown of glycogen—a storage form of glucose in the liver and muscles (aka animal starch)—is said to generate water that will either have to be urinated out or lost through breathing (water vapor) or sweating. But my weight didn’t change. Thirst may have been due to 20% humidity in the Sonoran desert, although I don’t usually wake up for water.
I was a little tempted by a fruit platter in the doctor’s lounge at the hospital: fresh pineapple, cantaloup, honeydew melon, and strawberries.
Steak and eggs for breakfast last two days. Wonder when that will get old. Enjoying for now.
