So I have been on keto for 1.5 years. I am 5’2’ tall, athletic build. I weighted 122 when I started. Initially the weight just fell off… for around 12 month i lingered at the 116/117 spot. I realize this is not a ton of weight but for me it is perfect.
After about a year my weight kept creeping up. i am now at 120 and cannot seem to lose weight. I exercise 5-6 times per week. I run 6-9 miles, depending on my travel (weekly for work). I do yoga 3-4 times per week and I rock climb 1-2 per week. I have tried not exercising for a few days here and there by recommendation and i gain weight.
Nothing really changed. I eat around 1300-1500 calories a day. My macros are right and My carbs are generally below 25. My glucose varies, sometimes i have a high fasting blood glucose in the am around 95. I check blood keytones and they range from .5-2.1 depending on time of day. My GKI is occasionally around 9, but generally below 6.
I drink coffee with MCT and monk fruit every AM. I do an IF a couple times a week. I do still eat dairy. Honestly I am not sure I want to give it up. It does not seem to matter one way or another as I have tried not eating dairy and nada was different. I have a little Lily’s chocolate or sweet occasionally but they do not seem to raise my blood sugar.
Anyway… I am at a loss. Any idea what is going on out there?
