Hello, anyone on Keto?

I have been on the Keto diet for 10 days and loving it. I've personally seen excellent results. This will now be my life style of eating because I enjoy it. If anyone else out there wants to be friends feel free to add me. Would love to exchange Keto food ideas and what not.

    Been strict keto since September. Have lost 28 lbs. Stalled recently, but just started going to the gym in hopes of sparking up the weight loss again.

    It's hard to say @billherzog. Have you been eating 20 or under grams of carbs every day? If you have, then you probably are in ketosis. How long have been stalled? I pretty much gain and lose an ounce or 8 here and there. But my weight has been steadily going down. Usually I gain when I've gone over too many carbs. I've found that I can eat up to 40 carbs and be ok. But over that amount, I gain in water weight. It comes down eventually.

    Make sure you are logging faithfully. Don't eyeball the amount of food. Don't plate something and think that looks about a cup. Make sure. If you have one, use a food scale. If you don't have one, get one. They are relatively cheap. I bought mine at Walmart for under $15. Doesn't have to be fancy, just make sure it can weigh in grams.

    And be patient. Even though it seems nothing is happening, our bodies are doing a lot of work internally. As long as you stay consistent, your weight will start dropping again. Remember, this is a journey, not a short trip. Like any long trip, we need to take a rest. Sometimes our bodies do the same.

    Switched from paleo to keto 2 months ago and loving it! No hunger or cravings and energy for days. For those just starting out patience is key, it takes time to become adapted, anywhere from a month or two or even more. Feeling tired, achy, cranky or slow to lose weight is normal (although there are things you can do to help with this). @billherzog congrats on making the commitment! If you haven't done it yet altering MFP to be keto friendly helps. Here's a link if you need it.
