    By Dr. Michael Eades, this really explains EXACTLY what is happening in our bodies if/when we hit that dreaded plateau/wall when we are eating (or think we are eating) keto. Well, we are, but that doesn't always guarantee weight loss. Like I pointed out in other replies, too much dietary fat, too many calories (yes, no matter how much we dread that word, we have to face the fact that we still have to deal with it), it can affect the outcome.
    Personally, I have to stay almost zero carb several days a week, watch my fat intake, and fast in order to actively lose. To maintain I can do around 10-15 gm/day but still have to fast periodically. This being my second time around in active weight reduction, i restarted my hard-core aerobics, which I had ditched before, and am h appy to say that I am still losing, and am toning very nicely in the process, even at 55 yrs old. Weight loss is not as fast, of course, because of muscle gain, but working out in a fasted state, even replenishing fluids, I wake up the next morning 2 lbs lighter. That's my protocol and I'm sticking to it. It has been working for 2 months, and I am 15 lbs away from goal.
