    Just started the keto diet too. Lost about 6-7 pounds since. Was afraid that it could be water loss or like muscle loss which is worst. But I got a fat scale at home and it properly shows that it's the fat loss part. Worth a try!

    those scales are inaccurate the losses are going to be water at first because you are depleting glycogen and water stores. so yes at first its water. as for muscle you lose some when eating in a deficit which is why its suggested to get enough protein and lift weights/resistance training.

    Hey! I don't know much about Ketogenic dieting but I do need to loose about 10 pounds short term (1 mo). If anyone has had luck with this diet and care to share some pointers I'd appreciate it. Also, feel free to add me so we can keep each other motivated and share our journeys.

    if you only have 10 lbs to lose you arent going to lose it in a month safely. you need to set your mfp to lose .5(1/2) a lb a week. 10lbs in a month with so little to lose is too aggressive and not safe as you dont have the weight and fat you did before to support large losses. keto is not a magical way to lose weight,its just a way of eating that can keep people on track,or help those with PCOS,inuslin resistance,type 2 diabetes and some types of seizure disorders.

    I want to start doing this. I have been crappy at logging but I am going to do well from now on because I'm tired of being fat. Is there foods that you can't eat at all? Can you still have a weekly cheat meal? Am going to try to keep my macros in the percentage posted in this thread and see if I start being more energetic and lose weight

    to lose you have to be in a deficit no matter if you follow keto or not.as for foods to avoid it would be those high in carbs(breads,pasta,high carb fruits) you only avoid them because they may make you go over carbs(and you may not enter ketosis). most people eat meats,cheese,oils,healthy fats,leafy greens and berries. nut and seeds. you can have a cheat meal but if its too high in carbs it may knock you out of ketosis. also when doing keto you need to up your sodium,potassium and magnesium as well. broths can help with that or adding salt to your food this can help to prevent the "keto" flu(feels like you have the flu but its not the flu).

    fat doesnt make you fat and fat should be higher if doing keto. fats should be higher than anything else it should be 60-75% fat,15-30% protein and 5-10 of carbs

    You right but it is only begining of diet, every week I will increase my dietary fat :)

    Please add me as friend. Im on day 6 of this diet. I may have gone overboard with my carbs today. 40g of carbs will thAt take me out of ketosis state? I've been diligent with my food diary.

    possibly not. some can eat as much as 50 net grams and stay in ketosis,some people more if they are say athletes or do long workouts.is that 40g net of carbs or 40g gross(not subtracting fiber)?
