Calories seem very low
I have been doing the keto diet for just two weeks and am beginning to stay within my macro ratios much better these past few days. It’s definitely a learning curve! I have lost 7lbs and feel great, however, I am concerned that my daily calorie amount is very low. 1011 calories. Some days I’m under, which seems very low 800+. But many days I’m quite a bit over. How crucial is it to stay within the calorie count recommended? I’m 58yrs old and not grossly overweight. I don’t want to put my body into starvation mode.
How much weight loss are you aiming for per week? I'm 58 too, and set mine for 0.5 and am allowed 1315 cals/day and max. 16 g of carbs. I'm concerned about going into starvation mode too, and completely understand why you to ask. I started logging 11 days ago, and have lost 4.4 lbs, which is more than the 0.5 kg per week I aim for.Reply
