My Six-week Keto Diet Experiment

When Ros Lawrence first heard of a diet that allowed her to eat foods she normally denied herself, especially peanut butter, she immediately decided to give it a go. What would you say if I told you there's a diet where you can eat all the food you normally deny yourself, stop counting tedious calories, shift some weight, gain extra muscle and get an energy boost too? If you're anything like me you'd be asking 'where do I sign up?'! So when I heard about the ketogenic diet from a colleague I was immediately intrigued. This simply sounded too good to be true. Could I really eat fat and get lean? Enjoy peanut butter treats and squeeze into my skinny jeans? Never one to shy away from a challenge, I decided to see for myself, and so began my six-week experiment with the ketogenic diet… What is a ketogenic diet? In its simplest form, this is an extremely low-carb, high-fat diet. It's based on the principle that by lowering your carb intake your body is pushed into a metabolic state known as ketosis (pronounced key -tow -sis), where it switches from burning carbs as its primary energy source to burning fat. To be more precise, it uses ketone bodies or ketones from the breakdown of fatt Continue reading >>

    I've been keto for 1 month now and have only lost 6 pounds. I have gained about 3 pounds over that last 2weeks. So technically I've only lost 3pounds. I haven't measured my inches again yet but I'm not feeling like my clothes are fitting loser at all. I haven't been counting macros just keeping my carbs down to 20 per day. I have no idea how to figure the macros so I just keep trying to keep the carbs low is that why I'm not moving much in the direction I want? I do cardio at least 3x a week for 30 min or more. I do feel more energy but seem to not be losing. Ugh!

    Glad to know you are feeling more energy!
    When doing keto for the first time, there are a few common traps/mistakes. From your post, you mention that you track carbs (which is great!). I didn't see a statement about tracking protein, though. There is a common mistake of eating too much protein, and not enough fat. A good target is 1 gram protein per kg lean body mass. Perhaps, this may be something that needs to be looked at?
    Here's a good compilation of advice for keto newbies. Maybe there is something else in here that may trigger more investigation:

    Tips from the Oldies
    1. The first month or two can be expensive As you change from a diet that is predominantly carbohydrate based to one that is 95% protein and good fats combined, it can be expensive. The cost of flour, rice, cereal and vegetable oil is significantly less than the cost of beef, pork, chicken, avocados and coconut oil. As you farewell the chips, margarine, crackers, bread and potatoes from the depths of your pantry and welcome in those gorgeous fatty cuts of meat, butter and cream your grocery b…

    Thank you so I guess it looks like I should be adhering to 42g of protein a day as well. What are the best healthy fats to get through the day?
