Top 15 Reasons You Are Not Losing Weight On A Low-carb Diet

Low-carb diets are very effective. That is a scientific fact. However, as with any diet, people sometimes stop losing before they reach their desired weight. Here are the top 15 reasons why you're not losing weight on a low-carb diet. Weight loss isn't a linear process. If you weigh yourself every day, then there will be days where the scale goes down, other days where it goes up. It doesn't mean that the diet isn't working, as long as the general trend is going downwards. Many people lose a lot of weight in the first week of low-carbing, but it is mostly water weight. Weight loss will slow down significantly after that initial phase. Of course, losing weight is not the same as losing fat. It is possible, especially if you're new to weight lifting, that you are gaining muscle at the same time that you're losing fat. To make sure that you're losing, use something other than just the scale (which is a big, fat liar). Use a measuring tape to measure your waist circumference and have your body fat percentage measured every month or so. Also, take pictures. Take note of how your clothes fit. If you're looking thinner and your clothes are looser, then you ARE losing fat no matter what th Continue reading >>

    I am a female with 40+ lbs to lose. I started this diet a few months ago. I was hopeful after my fiance lost 30 lbs in 3 months. I don't eat beef or pork, so chicken and seafood are my only meat options. I have really been sticking to under 30 carbs a day, and have been following the carb nite book, which allows us to cheat 1 day a week. I quit the diet last week bc I got so frustrated, but am willing to give it another shot. I need advice!! I'm getting married in 2 months and really would like to lose some weight. Should I start exercising? Should I be watching my calories? Thanks for any advice!

    Honestly, I think you should just keep calm and keto on!
    No cheating though, that was probably what was holding you back.

    Richard Morris @richard and Carl Franklin @carl discuss the theory of CICO (Calories In vs. Calories Out), a very popular theory about how to lose weight: If you simply create a caloric deficit by expending more calories via exercise than you eat you will lose weight. Does it work? If not, why? Does your body utilize every calorie that you eat? Are all calories burned at the same rate all the time? Does exercise increase or decrease your metabolic rate (calories out)? These are the questions tha…

    Hi there. I understand how frustrated you much feel. Because you are asking for advice...

    I would suggest that you drop the carb night. It is likely keeping you from fully adapting to keto.

    Many people have to restrict carbs to 20g total (no netting out for fibre).

    Restrict all snacks to none and try a little intermittent fasting. This is to limit insulin which can and does block fat burning.

    Be sure your are eating appropriate amounts of protein. Too much is converted to glucose.

    Hope this is of some help..
