Rhonda Patrick is an influence? She loves the broccoli sprouts.

Magnesium balance issues continue. Jacking up vegetables in the diet helps a lot with other problems.

It's helping somewhat.

Supplementing with Slow mag is working well.

Fair question. If I raise the dose of magnesium, the sleep issues go away but sometimes I shit myself. Shitting myself isn't appealing to colleagues and customers so I have to back it down.

Slow mag has helped with this a lot. When I went to 150 % daily dose the sleep issues abated without the side effects. Slow Mag uses MgCl2. Most mag supplements are MgO, which is a known laxative.

Insomnia is a well known side effect of low carb. I already had a tendency, both of my parents were insomniacs. You do what you gotta do.

To amplify on Nafod's question... a lot of food allergy sufferers learn a primitive kind of scientific method known as the "white diet". We eat what is known not to cause problems.

If I get enough Magnesium I sleep well. If I don't I will be miserable. Imagine being itchy and restless all night long.

I see my doctor twice a year. We go over these things. I'm one of two of his patients who do this sort of thing. Both of us have eliminated the need for cholesterol and blood pressure medication.

Deliberately tried to break Ketosis yesterday. Got Keto values down to 0.2 mmMol/L I want to see how long recovery of the state takes.

Dropped below 0.5 mmoL/L for about four days after breakage. Rose by to 1.5 mmoL/L on Dec 28 2018. I'm seeing around 40 grs of carbs as the threshold.

Latest check was 98 mg/dL glucose, 1.7 mmoL/L four hours after eating.
