I've been on Keto since mid July. The cravings went away around the second week.
I am also following Dr. Judith Beck - How to train your brain to think like a thin person.
Look for hidden carbs that you may not be counting. Also are you drinking diet soda?
If I eat dinner out I have either a burger with cheese, an egg, bacon or avocado. Breakfast or lunch out would be 2 eggs cheese omelette

I find that sticking to it strictly is the only way to go. Draw those lines and refuse to waiver.

Default Frustrated

Hello everyone. I am new to the Keto Diet and have been on it about 3 weeks. I really have more maintained than lost any weight. I really need some tips on how to start loosing. I have been fasting in the mornings until about 1:00 pm. I eat chicken salad with a pickle for lunch along with some almonds.
jello for snack

I try not to eat anything with flour and make all of my other things with almond flour.

Im lost
please help.

I'm still on the Atkins diet, which is ketogenic diet but not Keto.

Can you post a menu? How much weight do you have to lose? If you don't have much to lose it can be stubborn.

I'm also on a bit of a stall.
I did great the first 5 days. I dropped 8 pounds, but these last 5 days I haven't dropped anything.
A typical menu is Fasting for breakfast.
A snack of almonds and string cheese
chicken with the skin, Bacon for lunch
Avocado, two eggs or sometimes more chicken with asparagus or spinach cooked in grass-fed butter.

My Macros break down to 70-75% fat 20-25% protein and 8-10% carbs.
They can swing though, sometimes I only have 3 carbs for the whole day and sometimes I'll have 24.
Sometimes my fat drops to 50% and protein can hit 37-40%
Calories swing from 1500 to 700. High fat days tend to be lower calorie as I'm just not hungry.

I've no idea if I'm in Ketosis or not, I need to invest in some testing strips. But I'm just curious as to why I've stalled. with the calories averaged out I should still be losing just from BMR alone. Im very confused.

Sakai - there is a video out on YouTube by "Ask Nurse Cindy" talking about water balloons and fat loss. It really helped me understand fat loss because my scales stall sometimes on low carb/keto and I get discouraged.

The best way to get to ketosis is keep carbs as low as possible i try for under 10 a day... I find keto great for eating out basically hold breads and starchesand restaurants are getting way more flexible for us that helps too

Cool

I've been on a "keto" style diet for the past 6 months as part of a gut-reset protocol. In the last 2 months, I have really gone hard at reducing carbs. Ration is about 70/15/15 fat/carb/protein. At first it was SUPER tough to manage the mood swings and energy slumps. Things are normalizing now. I'm not in it for massive weight loss gains, more for quality of life gains and long-lasting weight maintenance I suppose. Really, it makes sense that we are supposed to eat like this. Avoiding processed food AND cultivated grains (a recent addition to the western diet). When you know how these foods are 'made' / grown, it will soon convert you!

Just to update, I figured Keto out ^.^ LOL I was such a newbie when I made that post. Even so, I'm reading Keto Clarity because you never stop learning. I've dropped 60 pounds now. And I do plan on continuing Keto

What did you learn on keto? I'm a keto newbie as well too. I'm now 18 days on Keto. I lost 7.5 lbs my first week and since then I've lost nothing. I kind of go up and down the same 2 lbs. I don't know what I'm doing wrong... :/ But I'm going to keep at it. I'm just a lil discouraged. I'm also on OMAD.... #WhateverItTakes
