Newbie to Keto got a question
I have been on keto for my third week, 8 pounds down, of the 20 I wanted to lose, at my physical my Keytone level was 5.2 with a blood test, and the doctor said I should probably try to get that a little lower without going out of ketosis, just wanted some insights to Accomplish that ????? ( 25 carb a day plan I’m on )
As I understand it, ketones are produced by the breakdown of fat. What are your macros set at now and are you meeting those? Maybe too much fat and not enough protein?
I would have been asking the doctor a bunch of questions and you should be able to call them for a quick discussion. Ketone build-up can be a problem. Did the doc say what it should be on your 3rd week? I'm at the end of my second month and use the urine strips. I'm not getting above a 4.0 anymore (usually much lower these days) and expect that to decrease as I get more fat adapted.Reply
