well see some of us on this planet must be carnivore, we function best and it ‘fixes our life medical issues’ and more…since NONE of us live the same lives or have same body med issues, some have to go here to find truths. I so get what you are saying tho, you want that ‘what you like to eat menu be the ‘everything’ from weight loss to better health and more’ but you might not get what you want from what you do eat? AND this is just how so many of us thru the years ‘find us’ and truths about us so your experimenting and changing and more will help you alot as you do what you need…you will find you in all this LOL
but if you put weight loss as number 1 only factor you almost can’t win cause the only best weight loss is starving…no one can hold that.
So key is ramp up fat intake more than protein intake.
How long have you been changing your menu to keto? And still working out kinda hard when I read your first post? More ya work out the more food ya need to ‘lose’ sometimes and that hits for many so not sure on your ‘kcals daily’ or are ya being tight on control with kcals?
You might be ‘trying too darn much’ in shorter spurts that might not ever show you truths if you ‘do longer term’ holding plan and giving your body time to change ya know.
too much too fast kinda thing?
Is your body changing? Clothes looser but no ‘number loss on scale’? cause that can easily happen as you replace muscle for fat you lean out and get healthier and stronger with muscle but your scale number doesn’t budge much…so looking at other ‘victories’ that aren’t scale number related?
ok just some thoughts truly, things to think about cause the more one chats and talks about ‘what ifs’ and such the more understands themselves. Some info works with you great and other stuff you think, nope, not me and you can bob and weave thru it…you will find your sweet spot for sure Most of us here did just that but it can take time!
