Smile Menopausal Mamma

Hi Everyone. I joined IP last week, February 7th. WI yesterday was a big disappointment - only down 2.4 lbs and literally starved all week. My counsellor says that I am not in ketosis yet, most likely because of menopause. Also am still having major sugar cravings.... I have not cheated all week and am drinking at least 12 glasses of H20 a day. Has anyone heard of menopause affecting ketosis and any ideas on the sugar cravings. Also was wondering if you only have about 20 lbs to loose, does it take longer?

Thanks for any insight or thoughts....

If you have only 20 lbs to lose it will take time to lose it. 2.4 lbs out of 20 is very good- that's already 10% of the way there.

The people who loose a large amount of weight each week are usually ones who have at least 100 lbs to lose from the beginning but with time their losses slow as well- specially when you get close to goal.

If you are starving all week IMO that's not good- I don't do IP but I would think if you are really starving you probably need more food but I don't know if IP has different plans.

Good luck.
