Why are you not losing any weight on a keto diet? And how do you stop yourself from eating out of anger? I followed keto between May and Dec , and slowly lost 20 pounds 9 kg. Then there were Christmas parties and I went to Florida for three months, which lead me to fall of the keto wagon. I went back on keto with enthusiasm and vigor on May 4, and have lost nothing. I go up a pound, and the next day go down a pound. Perplexed and disappointed, I forge ahead. To go on and off keto or any diet like this can be problematic for our metabolism. The time from 4th of May until now is in my world a very short time. If you are a sugar addict, then your biochemistry is even more sensitive than others.
Share Follow us Hello Johanne, thank you for your kind words! Every diet plan offers basically the same advice: 1 Limit calories not “too much” X. I’ve done low carb in the past and had very good results I hope this makes sense. I suffer from adrenal fatigue from years at a stressful night shift job and eating sugar, I could not function. Very useful information. Do you feel better with more carb foods?
But one of the main reasons people go keto is for weight loss. As keto has grown, so have the food choices. When your body is not getting enough vitamins and minerals from the diet, you can actually gain weight and store fat. Second, not all keto-friendly sweeteners are created equal. Worse, bio-individuality means some people react adversely to any or all of these sweeteners, perhaps heightening their blood sugar and kicking them out of ketosis. To avoid complications, be sure that the majority of your macros comes from real whole foods loaded with healthy fats, such as avocados, olives, eggs, wild-caught fish, pasture-raised meats, high-fat and low-carb dairy products, healthy oils think olive oil and coconut oil, and non-starchy vegetables like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and peppers. Regardless, keep your diet plan clean and keep processed treats to a minimum.
