12 Possible Reasons The Scale Is Not Moving

Okay, first things first…I’ve said it before, a hundred times, and I’ll continue to say it. The scale is a horrible measure of success. Yet, we’ve been trained to believe it is the ULTIMATE measure. So let me start this with one small caveat, you don’t need the number on the scale to feel good about yourself. It’s a number. You’re not. Having said that, I totally understand wanting the scale to cooperate, but sometimes weight can just be stubborn because we have abused our bodies for so long that our body may be defending itself against another deprivation diet. My first response to a stalling scale (besides kicking it and cursing it) is to remind myself this too shall pass and all I need is a little patience. If I am doing everything right and am not violating any “rules” of Keto, then I can just trust the process. That said, there are things you can evaluate. Perhaps there IS something you can do to give the scale a nudge. So what are those things you can evaluate or change? Macros It is entirely possible your macros aren’t right. Your protein may be too high, your fat too low, you could be eating the wrong kinds of carbs or too many. I see a lot of people try Continue reading >>

    Grrrr...
    I kept telling myself "It's okay that my weight has basically been the same since October. It's probably water & I'm still losing inches."
    Well, I just took my measurements 5 weeks after the last time I took them and they're the same. One or two went up, one or two went down.
    I've been keto since the beginning of July. I was losing weight steadily, stalling a bit, the usual. Down a total of 37 pounds... until I decided to stop counting calories. I've barely lost any weight since then- about 3 months- and I apparently haven't been losing inches either.
    I'm so upset and frustrated.
    I still have plenty to lose. 5'0 27 yr old female. Started at 241 and down to 204. Still firmly obese. Really annoyed. I don't really eat nuts. I guess I'm going to cut out my coffee? I dunno, but I'm pretty upset. :-/
    ETA: I still wake up hungry every day. I still feel the need to eat 3 meals a day though snacking is little or none. Everything I eat is fatty. I don't track anything, but I stay under 20g carbs.

    I really want to cry.

Keto Diet Mastery: Your Comprehensive Guide To The Ketogenic Diet

What if you could train your body to burn fat more efficiently and speed up your metabolism without restricting calories? If you’re struggling to lose those last 5 pounds or wondering why the muffin top just won’t budge (despite eating clean and exercising), you may find the answers you’re looking for in this keto diet master guide. What Is the Keto Diet? The ketogenic (aka: “keto”) diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that puts your body in a natural fat-burning metabolic state called ketosis (1). This is done by heavily restricting carbs and focusing on high fat, moderate protein meals (in some cases protein may be also be heavily restricted). According to PubMed, the classical ketogenic diet contains a 4:1 ratio of fat to proteins and carbs. In other words, the principle of the keto diet is to “eat fat to burn fat”. Now, the keto diet is often grouped with other high-fat, low-carb diets such as the Paleo or Atkins diets. But the reason these diets boast fat burning benefits in the first place is because they promote ketosis. Therefore, the ketogenic diet isn’t so much a “diet”, but more so the basis of these diets, and the biochemical reaction that occurs when y Continue reading >>

Constipation And Ketogenic Diets

Some people experience constipation on low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets and worry that it is due to a lack of fiber. If you are one of them, take heart! Fiber is not the answer! What is? Read on… The authors of Keto Clarity, Jimmy Moore and Dr. Eric Westman, acknowledge that some people develop constipation on ketogenic diets, and offer some recommendations about how to address the problem, including drinking enough water, increasing non-starchy, fibrous vegetable intake, and using sugar-free candy containing sugar alcohols as a mild laxative. I do agree that these approaches may certainly be helpful for some. However, if you have tried these ideas and they haven’t worked for you, or if you have trouble with constipation no matter what kind of diet you eat, I would like to offer some insights that I hope you will find useful. Most people believe that constipation is caused by a lack of fiber in the diet, but this is actually not so. My opinion, based on clinical and personal experience, common sense, and lots of reading of the scientific literature, is this: Constipation is usually caused by something you ARE eating, not by something you’re NOT eating. Lack of fiber does Continue reading >>
