Stick to <20 carbs a day to get started


Have you measured yourself? I lose inches before lbs. crazy but true


Two options:
a.) count everything — make sure things have the carbs / calories you think
b.) intermittent fasting (8 hours of eating, 16 hours not)

Beyond that, keep in mind that if you’re working out, muscle weighs more and will also hang onto water. If you’re a lady fish, you might need more than two weeks to discern a trend — hormones are wild.


Different people respond in different ways, especially if you have or are prone to metabolic syndrome it could take longer. Just be patient and keep fighting through. Once you start burning the fat you will be very motivated to continue the fight


Keep carb less than 23g.
My success story of 213 to 181 lb. my target is 165-170


The only thing I can think of is too much protein. Eating plenty of fat, very low carbs. Honestly I might back to eating healthy balanced meals as that’s the only thing that has worked for weight loss for me


Try implementing a intermittent fasting routine to your eating habits. 16 hour fasting windows, with lots of black coffee and water.


Make sure you’re actually in Ketosis—measure your blood


Have you figured out your macros and sticking to them?

Yep I'm counting my macros which says to stay under 23g carbs per day. The urine strips say I'm in ketosis, haven't tested my blood yet. Thanks!

Are you eating enough fat? Are you eating too much protein? Keto is not (just) a low-carb diet

Make sure you are exercising and running a caloric deficit. Even on Keto, if you are eating more calories than you are using you won’t drop weight.

I tried a few calculators but didn’t start losing until I found the Ketogains calculator

Guys I’m doing keto (~20g carbs/less that 100g fat/50g protein) a day and I’m not losing weight...........it’s been 3 weeks.......help

any Keto friendly food suggestions for purchase in Chicago Loop?

Any recommended brands for MCT oil?
I currently use Perfect Keto but I’ve seen other brands (Clean MCT, Kiss My Keto) with pure C8 rather than C8/C10 mix at reasonable prices.

Has anybody checked their cholesterol levels after being on keto? I am curious to know the results? Have been on keto for a little over a year now and thinking of a check up.

Does anyone have e keto coach or nutrition coach? It’d be great to talk to someone that could hold me accountable.


Fell off the keto track for this week, any suggestions on how to get back on track?

Feel like I’ve hit a plateau at 18 lbs total over 2 months. I keep it under 20g carbs per day. Have an indulgence maybe every 2 weeks (usually during a work event, gotta have a beer with the ‘bros’)

Week 2ish Lost 6lbs: 3 muscle 2. 8 day day ... lost nearly 20 prior to since January by working out following a more Paleo diet. I don’t want to lose muscle. Do OT & lots of walking 13.5k steps.

Do you guys track calories? I did Keto for a month (urine strips showed deep ketosis) and felt great but barely any weight loss. Any tips?

I cheated this weekend with sweets and rice. I am out of keto. It is so tough to maintain. I have been taught to limit red meat, butter so much...my sub-conscious seems to be getting in the way.


If i’m hitting my daily 20 net carbs and my daily fat intake but not hitting my protein enough (maybe hitting half what i need), will I still be in ketosis / burn fat & drop weight?


There were a few posts with helpful calculators, apps for stating on keto. I can’t seem to find the posts. Can someone please share?

12.6% weight loss from starting point 4 months ago. Yay. Even with cheats and falling off the wagon. 😋. Grateful for the knowledge from this bowl. And the regained confidence.


Anybody had dehydration issues, despite drinking a lot of water? How did you resolve it? How do you keep up with electrolytes levels?


Any brand suggestions for collagen supplements? Searching for anything on amazon is so overwhelming these days!! TIA

Has anyone tried vegan or veggie keto?

During the last few months I’m down 20 lbs mainly from increased activity ...taking walks outdoors etc, eating a bit healthier and drinking more water. Self care for me is easier when at home. I’m looking to lean out some more and considering Keto. Has anyone done keto for ~ 2-4 weeks, lost some weight then managed to maintain after going back to carbs and balancing diet and exercise? Not sure I can maintain carb-free forever ...TIA.
