I never got the point of the whole "ketosis cheat day thing". Ketosis is a kind of "all or nothing" thing. If you test your blood ketones in the early stages of ketosis you can see them slowly building up from day to day. It takes 3-4 days to... (more)

I'm curious. ^^ Of course potatoes are nightshades, and do produce toxins. Normal potatoes will produce toxins when they go bad as well - solanine - which concentrates mostly at the skin level of the potato.

What happens when you become fat adapted and you happen to eat to many carbs one day and it knocks you out of ketosis but you still remain in a calorie deficit?

This is fairly common with women that go too low on carbs. Try upping to 50-75 g a day via white rice. Split it up with each meal.

I have read before that being in the sun is very depleting. The more vitamin D you take in the more magnesium you need with it. So that might be why you feel a need for carbs - low magnesium levels.

Eating strict paleo doesn't mean eating low carb. Get lots of tubers and starchy veggies and you can easily get your carbs up to a level you can deal with. 1 cup sweet potato = 40 grams, remember :)
