Default Brain fog after 7 weeks! Why?

Hi everyone, I just completed my 9th week, and I am down 37lbs. I say this, because I know brain fog is normal in the first week or two. My mind has been very clear up until week 7, where I am having major cognitive functioning difficulties. I have been told many things. My coach tells me that being in ketosis is supposed to clear the brain. I have read and heard that low carb diets affect memory and concentration, especially in the beginning.
I would appreciate any feedback. I am concerned why now, after 7-9 weeks, I am having such a hard time cognitively. Other then that, I am doing great. Continued weight loss and inches, no depression, and following protocol to the "t". Thank you everyone in advance!

Hi. Refer to my thread about what happened to me after 5-6 months. I described to my coach keto flu type symptoms and asked why am I having symptoms now that describe what people go through in week 1 (I didn't experience this myself) and all I got was drink water, take supplements, etc that I was already doing. I recently came to find out that it is my thyroid (and possibly adrenals) so you might want to get that checked (I was originally thinking my electrolytes were off as a result of this program but my doc assured me this is a nutritionally sound plan).
