Gulaga National Park.....so amazing!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of walking this picturesque mountain, 806m (2,644ft).
I am so grateful to be physically able to do this!
When I was diagnosed with Type 1(in ICU with diabetic ketoacidosis) the endocrinologist told me if I went on HFLC diet I wouldn't have enough energy to do the things I wanted to in life.
Lets look at this a little closer...how many calories (Cal)/kilojoules (kJ) per gram of macronutrient:
Protein = 4Cal or 17kJ
Carbs = 4Cal or 17kJ
Fat = 9Cal or 37kJ
Now, do you think there was something wrong with his math?
Before walking up Gulaga I had a breakfast of....
Veggie fritatta cooked in coconut oil
Turkish coffee with cream
....lots of veg, lots of fat, a good amount of protein and ferments, but no real carbs.
This meal easily got me to the top without a significant change in my blood sugar!
