Hey, just thought I would say hi, and introduce myself. This past Sunday night was my first Carb Nite, after 7 months on a very strict, very low-carb ketogenic diet (that I merged with GAPS knowledge to make a KETO-GAPS diet aimed at healing leaky gut which caused an auto-immune disease). Really interested to see how CN effects things for me, and any benefits that I might see with my thyroid.
Since Sunday my weight hasn’t really changed. The day of my CN I weighed in at 117lbs (that was just that morning though as I had been coming in around mid-low 118’s for days prior. The day after I think I’d went up to around 119ish. Then back into the mid 118’s. This morning (Friday morning I was 118.4). So, basically no change, however I am about to start my period, and I’m pretty confident that’s the reason why my scale weight isn’t reflecting a change. That said, I do feel like my body fat has gone down a bit, and possibly even some gain to my lean muscle mass, but I think I need further observation to know for sure.
That said, I’m 5’3″, 32 years old. Probably the least active person you’ve ever met, although I do use a sauna every day, which does have some of the same effects as exercise. I’m also really focused on cellular detox and healing right now.
Anyways, hoping to exchange ideas and knowledge with others out there engrossed in self experimentation.June 6, 2015 at 3:36 pm #383051

Sweet! 🙂 How many grams of carbs did you manage to get in?June 10, 2015 at 9:07 pm #384180
Starting weight for 1st CN : 117 lbs
Next morning weight: 119 lbs
Number of Carbs eaten: (I have to guess based off what I ate which was 1.5 slices of pineapple ham pizza GF, 1 5″ chocolate cookie, 2-3 tablespoons of frosting) maybe 80 grams of carbs.
Starting weight for 2nd CN: 118 lbs
Next morning weight: 119.4 lbs
Number of Carbs eaten: 199 grams
3 days post 2nd CN: 117 lbs
What I ate: 1/8 lbs burger with GF bread, 1/2 pulled pork BBQ sandwich (GF bread) and fries with a little katsup, half a chocolate cookie, half a yeasty bun, and a few hours later .75 pint of gelato.
I woke up feeling great both mornings after my CN.
