  • It’s really hard to know. If your metabolism is out of whack it takes time to heal. Your calories may be too low.  Are your carbs consistently low, are you meeting your protein requirements, are you using too much dairy as your source of fat?   Are you exercising?  Just keep calm and keep on,  if you notice a change in your face and body the loss will eventually show.

  • Kimbizee  I can see where you'd be frustrated.  We need that scale for evidence!  Maybe your body is just working on something else.  The only advice I have, as a newb but heavily doctored person, is to please go have a full range blood workup done after being on the program for 3 or 4 months without weight loss.  There may be something hiding there that you need to know about.  Make sure all of your mineral and vitamin needs are being met.  My doc is all for giving it a try, but I know i have to get checked twice a year for a while because of a bunch of stupid issues.

    Persevere, don't disappear!

  • How do different medications and vitamin tablets affect this, should I be adding those?

  • What are your carbs at? Many people consume a lot of carbs and only count the net. Dr. Westman says when they have patients who struggle to lose that they see results with people who limit their daily carb intake to 20 total, not net, but total. I've seen where folks eat Keto junk food and they only have 16 net carbs but ate nearly 70 total carbs. I have found for myself that when I limit myself to 20 total or less that I see results.

    I think you’re overthinking this:)  Unless you want to take a gummy form of vitamin which probably has sugar,  you’re ok.  As for medications Consult your doctor.

  • robert. m. mahoney thanks for your input.  I did have it at Diabetes and someone suggested I try Net.  Can reset it if you think will help.  I'm open to anything right now.

    It will be okay,  keep it simple and keep going.  This is my lifestyle for almost 3 years.  All I’ve ever done is limit my carbs to a certain number of grams, always make sure I eat all my protein every day, and add fat  mostly through food choices such as fatty meats, Greek yogurt, nuts/seeds, and nut butters. Cook with healthy oil.  Get out and move every day.  Don’t be despondent you’ve already taken the hardest step, you’re doing something!  God bless!!

  • Kimbizee I mean, really, what could it hurt? True, you have to be a bit stricter then you are now, but of you are following keto then it shouldn't be to hard.
