I had 1200cal yesterday, 34c, 55f, 114p. Could this stall weight loss? I know we are shooting for 800-900cal but my carb count seems pretty good, is that what is most important?
Absolutely. The carb count is just what makes the diet ketogenic (without the extra carbs your body doesn't have a glycogen store to pull from and is what causes the body to burn fat instead of glycogen for energy). It is the CALORIE deficit that actually makes you lose weight. If you are eating more calories, you will lose more slowly because there is less of a difference between what your body needs to function and what you are taking in.
