Hi Keto pals,
I started on keto 5 weeks ago and the first 2 weeks had around 14lbs (6.4kg) weight loss and felt amazing! After that however I started my period and it has not stopped in 3 weeks. Unfortunately along with this I have also stopped losing weight despite sticking to the diet religiously.
Is this normal and am I right to keep trying? I love this diet and it’s the only diet I’ve ever enjoyed. But not dropping in weight has me super bummed. I’ve being testing my ketosis with strips daily and I seem to be in ketosis - sometimes ketones a little higher the 4.0 but not always.
My hope is that once my period regulates I will get back to losing but I need to know if anyone else has ever experienced this!
