    Hello...I've been on the keto diet for about 4 weeks. I have lost 20 pds but I do not think i am in ketosis. I am eating the foods allowed on the diet but i still feel tired and have some keto flu symptoms. I'm not very hungry but i do eat at least 2 meals a day. I'm keeping my protein low and fat up which i find hard having to eat a lower amount of protein. I have not tested my blood to see my glucose count. I'm concerned I'm losing muscle n not fat. I really need help. Many ppl have receipes filed with cheese n lots of dairy but i do not eat dairy. How can i achieve the right balance of high fat n raising my fat intake high enough to go into ketosis?
