The easiest way to do it is to blend foods. All foods are nutrient blends, and by increasing their fat or protein content you drop their GI. Want to drop the GI of a sweet potato? Dump a can of tuna on top.

The same thing happens to me when I have whey protein. This is likely due to the fact that it digests quicker than other forms of protein like casein. The quick digestion is why people consume whey after exercising. They consume... (more)

It's hard to say whether you are in ketosis. The best way to find out is a blood ketone meter. Bad breath can be a sign of getting into ketosis, but it certainly is not a reliable indicator. Some people do tolerate more carbohydrates than others,... (more)

Dairy is the culprit for my acne. Have you tried just 100% eliminating dairy (even butter) but keeping fruit and carbs? Also, higher fat ratios definitely help my skin, regardless of carb types.
