I Have Developed Cellulite On A Ketogenic Diet. How Is It Possible To Gain Fat On This Diet?

This is a really good question - I would be frustrated too in your situation. I think there are several factors that may be playing in to the response your body is having: First, you mention you’re eating less than 20 net carbs per day (which is great!), but you don’t mention your other macros - protein and fat. Remember, Keto is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet with daily targets for all three of these macronutrients. If you’re only counting your carbs, your other macros may be totally out of whack, which could explain why you’ve gained fat. On keto, you’ll find that some people focus on percentages for each of the three macros I’ve listed above (65%-75% fat, 20%-30% protein, and 5%-10% carbs), but I think it’s much easier to calculate exactly how much of each you should be eating each day by counting grams rather than trying to calculate percentages all day. So on keto, the recommended starting point for most people in grams for each of the macros is 20 net grams of carbs, 50–75 grams of protein for women/100–125 grams of protein for men, and at least a 1:1 up to a 1:2 ratio of protein to fat for everyone.
