[quote=lisa32989;5004551]I'm not sure one week will give you the answer. One week of 0 loss can happen. Even if you have a loss with NO restricteds next week, it still might not be related to the restricteds.

Thank you Lisa, What is the best way to tell if the higher carbs affect your losses??

Thank you so much for this. It is nice to have something sweet in the evening!!
You are doing great!

I LIVE for my Quest bar! LOL! When my boys go to bed, I get to turn on a TV show of my choice and savor every last bit!

Hang in there...I bet you will see a nice loss next week just like I did after no loss in Week 4!

I think I finally got this photo to work! Not very good of a comparison since we have to wear "trashbags" and cant see body shape (Which is good for some... but Dang I looked good in my dress for graduation!) So I guess this is my TBT

Give it more time without making changes. The only other way would be to get a blood test to see what your insulin levels are. That's pretty extreme at this point

Most people are fine using the restricteds. The carbs are carefully calculated into the daily totals for you and the plan was designed to accommodate for them and allow most to have one per day and stay in ketosis.

In fact, over the year and four months I have been on the boards, I have seen a number of people who have "tested" losses with and without restricteds and most found no difference.

You certainly can go without them, but for a lot of people, they look forward to having the variety they provide, it keeps them motivated, on track, on plan, etc.

If they cause cravings or if certain ones cause cravings, you definitely want to make adjustments!
