purpose of P1 - ketosis?
Hi, I guess if you rigidly followed phase 1, you would go into ketosis. Has this happened to anyone? I have never really seriously dieted and thought SB might work for me. As far as it goes, my goal is to lose about 15 lbs, which may not seem like too much. But darn, I've now carried those extra lbs for about 5 years. I'm only 5'2" so 15 lbs is about 2 dress sizes. I could be more ambitious and try to lose down to my age 20's weight, but I figure carrying some extra weight is not a bad thing.
Long story short, I've never stuck with anything long enough to lose weight. On the plus side, I can eat and drink pretty much anything I want and maintain the weight I'm at, but I feel unhappy in my skin at this weight.
I'm working out of town and away from my skinny-eats whatever he wants-beer drinking husband and thought I might take advantage of this time to deprive myself of calories. I have to admit I'm rambling and also, I don't know that I will be able to maintain any weight loss once I return home. I'm hoping if I lose 7 lbs or so that I will be encouraged to keep it off. What's your experience with weight loss as a continuing motivator and how P1 worked for you? Ketosis or carb craving reduction.
