I’ve been on keto now for about one month. I am a T2D. I primarily got on keto to control my blood glucose, cause to be honest before keto, I was let’s say “enjoying the carbs” I am morbidly obese, needing to lose about 100lbs. It’s a challenge just to admit that. I started this way of eating primarily after watching Dr. Fung, his science made sense to me. Initially, my first week I went from 315 to 305, I’m guessing mostly water weight. I didn’t really have a structure of eating, just first 2 weeks, I didn’t eat extra sugar and gave up bread. My 3rd week I added IF, doing 16:8. Felt good, cause I was never a breakfast person. So just had coffee with heavy cream. I’ve gone on to following more of Dr. Fungs obesity code diet with alternating one meal a day with two. I am not hungry by any means and I feel satiated. I have noticed, although a stall in weight loss.
My concern is maybe I’m not eating enough. On my OMAD day, I can get about 900 calories in that meal and I’m stuffed. On my two meals a day, about 1400. I keep carbs low, and try to add fat in different ways. Most days I have a 70/20/5, (fat, protein, carbs)
I want to know am I doing this right? What can I improve upon. This week, over limited my use of sweeteners (erythritol) to once a day and I do a 30 min walk, 3 times a week.
So there I am. Any input is appreciated.
