Low Carb Ketosis and Taylor Swift

I am back on the low carb train.

I just feel disgusting if I eat carbs. So, I am preparing to have the "Carb Flu" for a few days … I must say I enjoyed my fried eggs, and sausages with grated cheese. I am limiting myself at the moment to 50 grams of carbs a day so I will be in Ketosis (Ketosis is a state at which the body has an extremely high fat-burning rate. Even the brain runs on fat, via ketone bodies. These are energy molecules in the blood (like blood sugar) which become fuel for our brains after being converted from fat by the liver.
To encourage ketone production, the amount of insulin in your bloodstream must be low. The lower your insulin, the higher your ketone production. And when you have a well-controlled, sufficiently large amount of ketones in your blood, it’s basically proof that your insulin is very low – and therefore, that you’re enjoying the maximum effect of your low-carbohydrate diet. That’s what’s called optimal ketosis)

I did this early last year when I wasn't feeling great and needed to detox as my cortisol levels were to high (I have abnormal levels which makes my anxiety go crazy) … It helped with my anxiety and my medication was lowered. That's the reason I did it so I could eventually be medication free. As soon as I started adding carbs, with guidance from my dietician, medication increase time. Right now as I sit here, I have a splitting headache, the start of the "Carb Flu" … My weight will drop to in the next week as it adjusts to whats going on, and that's fine. I am aware.

In other news!!

Taylor Swift … The song "Style", it's my favourite song right now. I love it that much that I am listening to it as I type this out. ON REPEAT!! I also have it as my alarm on my iPhone haha. I have never been a fan of hers, but this CD 1989 looks really good. I may just have to buy it, as I have really liked all her songs she's released off it thus far. It's my birthday on the 29th, so maybe I should ask someone to buy it for me! That's a thought.

The Boyfriend! It's official. I am officially in a relationship and that scares the absolute SHIT out of me, i'll be honest. He is pretty awesome I have to say. He's my fireman (he is an actual fireman) and a beautiful person to. Ok, so I am biased. I made mention to him on friday night, the look he had (his uniform, messy hair and he'd not shaved in a few days), was absolutely HOT! I'd not seen him like that before and I was blown away. He just looked at me with his sexy smile and then kissed me! I will never get sick of telling him how I think he's sexy because to me he is … I sound so superficial hahahahaha.

Actually I think I am falling in love, HARD!
