Ok, this is so weird but I think I have a theory what happened here…
I’ve been in ketosis for over 4 months, zero cheats. I’ve been tossed out only a few times from restaurant mishaps, but life goes on. Getting great results from keto al this time.
Then last week I was fighting a fever and sore throat going around the school where I work. My BG was up in the 90s regularly for that week, which is high for me. I know illness can elevate it, so no worries.
But I gained weight. Weirdest thing because I’m eating the same amount or less, all high fat, low carb (<20), moderate protein. It has stayed with me for almost a week now, and I can see and feel it (although no one else would - about 6 pounds).
The ONLY thing I can imagine is that eating keto when your blood sugars are high(er) is a recipe for fat storage. Does that seem possible?
I’m over the illness (which I never really fully got because keto makes me a bad ass, thankyouverymuch) and my numbers are back to the 70s so I suspect this weight will fall back off of me. It will be interesting to see but anyone know if my theory could be correct?
