This time was a little worse than the last time, but still tolerable. I am mainly a little more tired. I am getting over the cold 100% with a cough a few times/hour. I did go through some periods of constipation and the usual shooting pains at night but overall I am feeling pretty good. I am seeing some muscle loss in my upper body, so I really need to do some exercise!
The major issue for me right now is weight loss. I have lost close to three pounds and as a result I am trying to gain it back. Yesterday I "cheated" on my diet and had a bowl of chili. This morning I was at least a pound heavier, probably thanks to the carbs.
I've been trying to stick to the low sugar diet, but I am not going overboard by avoiding all food-based sugar like that found in apples, bananas, and berries. I am concerned about the glycemic index of 147 with my last blood test that was taken an hour after I had a breakfast smoothie. Next time I will fast before my test. I am also going to get my PSA test next time to see if I am making progress.
So far so good. Thank you all for the words of encouragement! They do make a difference.
