Ketogenic Diet - Day 15
10th December 2018
A new week
Monday morning, start of a new week, and I didn’t really do very well at the weekend. With the trip to the pub on Saturday night, I really let myself down. You do have to “live a little” and I actually really enjoyed myself. So, enough beating myself up about it. Got to go take dad for his pension. I’ll be back soon.
Thoughts on the day
See the tumour feedback to the side. What I can’t get my head around is why I should feel like I want to go to the toilet when all I have had is a cup of green tea.
I can understand, in the early days of being diagnosed. My symptoms. Which were, a feeling that I want to go to the toilet. Then “nothing” when I got there.
Simply, I was feeding the cancer with carbs during the day. As it got fed, it swelled up, that made me feel as if I wanted the toilet. It was however, just a swelling of the tumour. It is the same now, but when I go, it’s blood, not stool.
Is it my morning green tea, that is attacking the cancer?
Quite a bit of pain this morning as when I got back from my morning walk with the dog.
What I can’t get my head around this whole thing of green tea in a morning making my symptoms of old re-appear.
Post Coffee Enema
I am loosing my faith in the idea of the whole ketogenic diet. It seems that it doesn’t matter WHAT I eat. My blood sugar goes up. Even a few spoons of full fat cream push my blood sugar up.
Every time it does, it feeds the tumour. I can feel it. It makes me feel like I need the toilet and I suffer pain.
Green Tea, nothing else, I’m on my second cup as I type this.
I made some keto bread the other day, and it was absolutely awful. Supposedly a burger bun and although I ate one, the other 5 looked great, but they were truly awful. So, I threw them in the bin.
However, it did get me thinking that from this batter I could make some pakora. So, I did so, and used some left over spinach that I had in the fridge. They have turned out really well. I will continue to work on the recipe until it is excellent before posting it on here.
Dinner today, is the pakora’s that I had for lunch, and a home made chicken curry. Very keto friendly, the sauce is made with onions ginger, garlic, and ginger.
Final Days Thoughts
As stated above, I am loosing the plot with all this. I am in ketosis, I am eating a ketogenic diet, but yet everything I eat pushes my blood sugar up.
Every time it is elevated, it feeds the tumour. I can literally feel it.
I will stick with it for a few more weeks. Maybe I’m missing something.
More worried than ever, that it has spread.
The reason for saying that, is that when I now feed the tumour, I also feel like I have a swelling in my testes. It feels like I want to visit the toilet to urinate, but can’t. Drinking plenty of water, and I am managing to go plenty. This is also making me think that it has spread to my prostate.
