    Hey Everyone!
    For members doing low carb and keto, can you please differentiate the two? I have adjusted my carbs to net below 50, it has only been a week and my first three days have been all over (day 1 was 20 something, past two were around 40), does being under 50 put you in ketosis or do you have to be under 20? Does your body burn fat instead of carbs ONLY in ketosis or will it do it just being low carb?
    What is the Net Carb count for the Keto Diet? As I have read I understand it to be high fat low carb, but what about protein? Can it be high or is it supposed to be lower then fat? Can you give me any recommendations on what you have your macros set to?
    I have my calories at 1839, and I have not adjusted my macros yet because I am not sure where to put them because I just want to make sure I net under 50. I eat a lot of fiber so my carbs shown are usually over 50, but once I take the fiber out I am below. My carbs either come from veggies, or dairy, and I sometimes eat the Low carb tortillas from Mission. I also try to make sure my sugar is either equal to my fiber or lower.
    I do this for medical reasons, I have PCOS and I have been stalled on the scale for three months, I have been losing inches, but after this long I should still see something on the scale, and I was trying to see if this may be why. I was around 130 carbs, netting below 100 - now I am netting below 50.
    Please let me know if you can give me some advice and also if you have any tips or things you find help you stay low, please share, I would love hear your experiences.
    Thanks!

    Forget net carb silliness on keto. Just stay under 50.

    Keto is an extreme version of a low carb diet there carbs are kept to less than 50g a day. There not enough glucose in the diet to provide the body with energy, so energy is generated from body fat, dietary fat, gluceogenesis (making glucose from protein), and ketosis (producing ketone bodies in the liver for brain fuel).

    It took a while, but by now most of us know that fat is not the enemy, that there are certain kinds of fat that can actually help your heart, and that it need not be obliterated from your diet if you’re trying to lose weight. In fact, for some people, fat is actually the superhero of their diet—and chowing down on olive oil, butter, and heavy cream is the key to watching the scale dive lower and lower, without feeling hungry or deprived.

    I’ve been following Jimmy Moore’s N=1 experiment with staying in nutritional ketosis on his blog, but it was instructive to actually watch the man eat during his visit last week. His meals are WAY high in fat now and he watches his protein intake. I must admit, despite everything I’ve read about the benefits of ketosis, when I watched Jimmy scooping gobs of butter and sour cream on his cheesy scrambled eggs in the morning, I couldn’t help ...

Low-carb diets, especially very low-carb diets, may lead to greater short-term weight loss than do low-fat diets.

  • Eating Low Carb But Not In Ketosis

    Ketosis is a word that gets tossed around a lot within the Paleo community – to some, it’s a magical weight-loss formula, to others, it’s a way of life, and to others it’s just asking for adrenal fatigue. But understanding what ketosis really is (not just what it does), and the physical causes and consequences of a fat-fueled metabolism can help you make an informed decision about the best diet for your particular lifestyle, ketogenic or ...

    Ketogenic diets (aka keto diets, nutritional ketosis or NK) are currently all the rage, and for good reason. As I wrote in a previous post a few weeks ago, very-low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diets (VLCKDs) are extremely effective for weight loss and diabetes, among other things. There's also emerging evidence suggesting they may be beneficial for certain cancers and neurological conditions like Parkinson's disease and ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig' ...

The rate of weight loss on a ketosis diet varies, and how long it takes to work depends on how much weight you need to lose, but you may be able to lose more than 12 pounds in a month.
