I’m doing it for 2nd time right now. First did it for 2 months bf I got married 2 yrs ago. Lost 10 pds and I was not totally strict. First year of marriage and I gained 12 pds. In Jan 2019, I started back logging food and exercising 5 x per week consistently and keeping to a strict 1200 diet. I have doing my measurements and weighing in every Friday. In 3 months I only lost 4 pds and the scale just keeps going up and down the same few pounds. I got so fed up last week I decided to go back on Keto and be strict with it. It’s been only 5 days but I’ve lost a lot of water weight ( don’t know how much yet as I weigh in tomm). Carbs hold water so when you stop eating them your body let’s go of all the water. Anyway, after months of perfect eating and being active to only see minimal movement on the scale was frustrating. I’m close to menopause and feel this is why I’m having so much trouble. I believe Keto definitely helps when you have metabolism issues or other conditions. You have to understand it though. It’s no joke of a diet. But works great!
