Low Carb Diet Results: 'how Much Weight I Lost After 2 Weeks On A Low-carb Diet' | Women's Health

I've tried my fair share of weird weight-loss strategies, none of which I wind up maintaining long-term because of the crazy restrictions. But in the summer of 2015, my parents started their own journey on the low-carb diet, and after seeing each of them successfully shed some pounds, I decided to give the diet a try for myself and see what kind of low-carb diet results I'd get. Diets that minimize carbs go by many names. Chances are you've heard people refer to the Atkins, South Beach, or Keto (short for "ketogenic") diets. For the purposes of this experiment, I followed the rules laid out by Susan Kleiner , Ph.D, R.D, author of Power Eating , in this article . Since I work out moderately at least three times a week, I planned to consume 100 grams of carbohydrates per day on the planand that was the only rule. Considering cheese is naturally low in carbs (and was the hardest thing to give up during my bouts of Paleo and Whole30), I figured I'd finally met my perfect weight-loss match. So, armed with no further restrictions than capping my carb count, I kicked off two full weeks on the diet. Here's what I learned and what my low-carb diet results looked like. 1.

    Hello all! I've been doing the IP program for 9 days now and am still not in Ketosis. I've tested to see if I am using the Ketostix from the RX store and the strips show a trace amount - the color is almost "clear" on the sticks. I've tested several different times throughout the day and several different ways (i.e. dipping it in sample, placing directly in stream, etc.) and they all show "trace" for the results.
    Shouldn't I be in Ketosis already?
    My weight loss for the first week was over 14 pounds, but so far this week, no weight change.
    I know that Ketosis is a key figure in the success of this program.
    Any ideas from you all out there??
    Thank you so much!

    Hi!
    I have news for ya. If you lost 14 pounds the first week, your in Ketosis!
    If you stay on plan and not cheat you will stay in ketosis. Don't worry about strips, trust the plan, you must have faith in it.
    Even if it's a trace, that means Ketosis. Dont worry about the color of the strip because if your dehydrated, it will show up darker. Keep drinking all your water and getting all your veggies and salad in. You'll be just fine

    Don't sweat the ketostix. If you are getting the proper amount of water in, you should only show a trace amount or even none. If they ever get purple, you are def not getting your water in. Follow the plan and no more then 1 restricted a day, you will be in ketosis!

    Hello all,
    I’m a 5’4, 145 pound, 20 year old female, 27% body fat who works out (kickboxing) for about 1 to 1.5 hours a day. I’ve been on Dairy free Keto and doing 16:8 IF for about 3 weeks now and have gained 3 pounds. I was 142 when I started Keto. The macros I follow are 1207 calories, 90 g of Protein, 20 g of carbs and then usually around 80ish g of fat until I feel full. I meal prep ahead of time on Sundays so all my meals are planned and I don’t cheat. With lots of water, exercise, taking a multivitamin/B Complex/Green Tea Extract, dairy free (so no cheese or anything), or artificial sweeteners, I don’t know why I’m not losing any weight on Keto. I’ve seen this work for so many people and have been doing extensive research as to why it won’t work for me. I’ve tried recalculating my macros and gotten these 2 results:
    upping my calories to 1324 calories and 80 g of protein with 20 net carbs, 103 g of fat
    lowering my calories to 1177 and doing 103 g of protein, 20 net carbs and 73 g of fat.
    These two seem completely different macros and I don’t know which one to follow since what I do right now is in the middle of both.
    An example of lunch and dinner I have during IF are like 8 oz of ground turkey, 2 eggs and 1/2 an avocado for lunch and a tuna salad with spinach, flax seed, MCT oil and 1 egg for dinner. With TONS of water- I fill up my hydroflask (32 oz) around 5 times a day.
    I’m just saddened that I haven’t lost ANY weight on Keto when it seems to work for everyone else. I’ve gotten blood tests done as well and my hormones are fine. My goal weight is 120 so I do have a significant amount of pounds to go and would appreciate any advice from you! I have even stopped all nuts and nut butters because I read that those could be an impediment to weight loss. I’m considering doing an egg fast in a few days for 3 days to see if that brings about any change.
    If it helps, I never got the keto flu (maybe because I was around 40-50 g of carbs to begin with), I’ve been tested and found 0 hormonal or thyroid issues, I TRACK EVERYTHING, my ketostix say that I am in ketosis and don’t know what else to do at this point.
    Thank you so much for your time- your journey is SO incredibly inspiring and I would hope to some success on Keto. Open to ANY advice at all! Please help!

    I have some things that come to mind after reading your post.
    First, being in ketosis doesn’t mean being fat adapted. It takes time, 3 weeks is a short time. Your body needs to adapt to your new lifestyle. And I really mean lifestyle, you shouldn’t consider ketosis as a diet but a new way of life.
    Second, I think your protein intake is too high. You should eat 1 to 1,5 g of protein per kg of lean bodyweight. I don’t think that your lean mass is 90 kg . Decreasing your protein intake means increasing your fat intake.
    Third, you seem to be in the diet mentality like a lot of us women. You shouldn’t count calories. During your keto adaptation, your only concern should be to eat under 20g of carbs, moderate protein and fat to satiety.
    Finally, you should take your body measurements (chest, waist, hips, thighs and arms) to track your progress.

    I hope it helps. And keep calm and keto on.

Still Not Getting Into Ketosis

I wrote a post 2 weeks ago headed "I Cant Get Into Ketosis" and here I am 2 weeks later still not in Ketosis. I am still on Induction level - which I can cope with - but some weight loss and ketones would be nice!! I gave up using the Ketostix to measure for Ketons because I read they can be inaccurate. So I brought a blood glucose and ketone machine and now do a blood test every morning hoping to see ketones - but hardly anything is showing. This week I have spent 3 days on 0.01 and 2 days on 0.02. I am using a Carb Recorder app and list everything I eat to be sure I am staying in the 20 carb limit. I am exercising twice a week - I know thats not enough and will up it as from this weekend. I'm so focused on loosing weight before christmas that I will now commit to exercise 6 out of 7 days - starts tomorrow morning with a trek up the goat track of Castle Hill. The only thing I can think of is that I have an Atkins Day Break bar every evening around 8.30pm - this is still in my 20 carb allowance. Any thoughts on if this could be what is stuffing me up. I started at 96K about 10 weeks ago. I have lost 4 kilo in the past 10 weeks, but thats less than 500gms a week and the last 3 week Continue reading >>
