    Hey Everyone!
    For members doing low carb and keto, can you please differentiate the two? I have adjusted my carbs to net below 50, it has only been a week and my first three days have been all over (day 1 was 20 something, past two were around 40), does being under 50 put you in ketosis or do you have to be under 20? Does your body burn fat instead of carbs ONLY in ketosis or will it do it just being low carb?
    What is the Net Carb count for the Keto Diet? As I have read I understand it to be high fat low carb, but what about protein? Can it be high or is it supposed to be lower then fat? Can you give me any recommendations on what you have your macros set to?
    I have my calories at 1839, and I have not adjusted my macros yet because I am not sure where to put them because I just want to make sure I net under 50. I eat a lot of fiber so my carbs shown are usually over 50, but once I take the fiber out I am below. My carbs either come from veggies, or dairy, and I sometimes eat the Low carb tortillas from Mission. I also try to make sure my sugar is either equal to my fiber or lower.
    I do this for medical reasons, I have PCOS and I have been stalled on the scale for three months, I have been losing inches, but after this long I should still see something on the scale, and I was trying to see if this may be why. I was around 130 carbs, netting below 100 - now I am netting below 50.
    Please let me know if you can give me some advice and also if you have any tips or things you find help you stay low, please share, I would love hear your experiences.
    Thanks!

    Forget net carb silliness on keto. Just stay under 50.

    Keto is an extreme version of a low carb diet there carbs are kept to less than 50g a day. There not enough glucose in the diet to provide the body with energy, so energy is generated from body fat, dietary fat, gluceogenesis (making glucose from protein), and ketosis (producing ketone bodies in the liver for brain fuel).
