Welcome! Glad to have you aboard!
A ketogenic diet is first and foremost about metabolic health. Not to minimise your desire to lose weight, but that will come as a side effect of getting your metabolic health straightened out, so be patient with your body.
Some thoughts come to mind: First, the rapid weight-loss stories that make the news are all about people who had lots of weight to lose. And even they slowed down once they got to the final 10 pounds, so the last pounds to come off are going to come off slowly. Then there is the issue of getting our body to agree about whether losing those ten pounds is a good idea, lol!
Another thing people sometimes experience is body recomposition, in which the abundant resources of a well-formulated ketogenic diet often prompt the body to add muscle and bone density, while at the same time shedding fat. So keep track of how well your clothing fits, as well as what your scale is telling you.
The most important part of the diet is keeping carbohydrate low enough that your insulin level can drop and stay low for most of the day. Protein should not be excessive, but it does need to be adequate. We recommend in the range of 1.0 to 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of lean body mass a day. A good rule of thumb is that an ounce of meat typically contains 7 grams of protein, so if you wanted 70 grams of protein, you’d eat 10 ounces of meat, and so on.
Don’t fear fat on this diet. The effect of fat on insulin is so minimal that it can basically be ignored. So that makes it a safe source of calories, to replace all the energy you are no longer getting from carbohydrate. You can safely fill in with fat to satisfy your hunger, and if you do that, your body will adjust your appetite so that it can take some calories from those ten pounds of fat you want to lose.
