30 days is still a SHORT TIME. Not even fat adaptation. We are MANY who get close to no benefits in the first month, it’s very, very normal I saw people putting in insane effort, fasting a lot and not getting much result, well that’s rare and very sad but our health and past are different and some of us have a very hard time. I actually feel quite lucky despite never losing fat in all these on/off keto years, not getting energy, mental clarity (? I don’t think I needed it to begin with…? but of course everything can get better ;)). I don’t gain, I eat whatever I want, I learn, I experiment… I don’t feel I miss out anything, my woe isn’t restrictive… It’s good and I am patient, I can wait 5-10 more years (but I don’t want to if possible)! And fat is one thing, lowish energy may be my fate for life, I am still lucky… But my body LOVES that I usually eat extreme low net carbs. I feel it’s the right way to live for me and that is what matters. I do what I should and maybe I will lose a few pounds in 2023. Or in 2024. But if not, I still stay because I know carbs aren’t the answer.
So I am not frustrated so very often Or not seriously. Of course I am displeased when my efforts are in vain or when I just can’t behave… But basically I am an optimist. I need that.
If quick and immediate fat-loss is so very important for you and you get it from another diet, do the other diet first then… I think I told you that already.
Or drop all the added fat you consume. But only if you aren’t sure you do need those. It would be wrong to eat too little, after all and not everyone gets enough from their protein sources like me.
