Zero Carb Experiment – Day 30!!

Yesterday May 5, 2015 marked day 30 of my Zero Carb diet experiment. And wow, what a month it has been! If you missed my experiment until now, here are all of the links to my updates: Read my first post on zero carb Read my first update on zero carb Read my second update on zero carb Read my third update on zero carb Since April 6, 2015 I have been eating from the animal kingdom only, mostly meat and some eggs with dairy in the beginning (but no more). In the last 30 days I have eaten: beef (all kinds), beef tallow, chicken thighs, crab, shrimp, scallops, butter, bacon & its grease, lamb, tuna, rockfish, salmon, sardines, grass-fed ghee, eggs. Condiments: mustard, tabasco, garlic, lemon, herbs and spices with no added sugar. Also some mayonnaise in the beginning, then switched to this avocado oil mayo (my one item from a plant). I have made only a few ‘recipes': Reverse seared ribeye steak, The Bear's chicken recipe, ground beef jerky, cabbage juice tonic, chicken bone broth in a pressure cooker. [I'll add links as I post these recipes – coming soon!] What I have NOT been eating: anything sweet, vegetables, grains, “keto” or “paleo” bread, low carb or anything else with Continue reading >>

    I have been doing the Keto diet for 2.5 weeks. The first week I lost 4 lbs in 6 days. Then gained a lb and lost .6 now I'm stalled out. Basically losing .2 every few days. I AM in ketosis. I know the metallic taste, the urine smell and I test my urine in the AM before I drink water and it is at the high end of the color spectrum. My macros are 75/20/5. My energy levels are through the roof!! So no complaints there. I feel amazing!! My skin, hair etc looks better but the weight isn't coming off, even though I'm in ketosis.... Can anyone help me with this? I drink massive amounts of water. It's my addiction. At least 200 oz a day.... Always have so that's nothing new. Thanks in advance!

    Is your doctor advising you about your diet? Being in ketosis, drinking so much water, not losing weight - and continuing with the diet - I would ask your doctor what he or she thinks is going on.

    Since you are already at a healthy weight for your height I suspect that's why you are not losing large amounts of weight. With that said, a couple of suggestions...
    Are you eating enough fat? It has been shown that higher fat in = higher fat out.
    Also remember you can lose inches without losing pounds, this is normal and happens to everyone. Stalls are normal, they are your body's way of shifting gears and figuring out what changes are happening.
    Again, 5'8 and 149 lbs is a perfectly healthy weight and I can't see it would be very healthy for you to lose much more. Just keep at it, and if you have weight to lose, it will come off, but the less weight you have to lose the slower it will be...if your in the last 5 lbs to lose, i reiterate, it can take some time for that since your body is more likely to hold onto it. Maybe try an Atkins fat fast if that's your goal?
    Good luck!
