My apologies for the length.
Over the last 2 years I have followed Ted Naiman macros protocol combined with Bert Herring’s 19 hour daily fast. Protein and carbs fixed at 140g and 30g respectively.
Weight loss 5st13, 83lbs, 37.6kg with lately stable estimated LBM of 8st0, 112lbs, 50.8kg (BF% 29%)
Although my compliance has not been perfect, this system has achieved it’s objective. My intended ideal weight was 10st4, 144lbs, 65.3kg which is 1st0, 14lbs, 6.4kg to go.
However, I have now been told I have prostate cancer and should expect radiotherapy etc.
I am considering Therapeutic Ketosis (Seyfried) as I have a few weeks to experiment to see if I can achieve it. For the last 2 years my KT have never measured above 5mM. This morning’s numbers after 12 hours of fasting were BG 5.1, KT 0.4.
As a 75 y/o male I am planning Protein at 1.24g/kg/d (Courtney-Martin et al) and my macros would be P,C,F 90g,20g,50g or 20/5/75%.
Finally to my question (sorry):
What is my best way to get into and SUSTAIN for 3-4 months, Therapeutic Ketosis?
Very many thanks.
