I went from 2,600kcals average to now 4,000 + every day and I’m leaner then when I started.
This is absolutely insane and I figured it would level out and become closer to my pre keto maintenance calorie level but it hasn’t.
How is it possible I can go from 2,600kcals %11-12 BF to %9-10 while nearly doubling my caloric intake. I’m absolutely astounded.
What I am experiencing sounds like what people who take hard drugs to cut weight describe. If this was happening without switching my diet I would be going to the emergency.
I’m thinking I should get some blood work at the very least.
My only pseudo scientific guess as to what is burning the excess calories is my brain. There was 2 main reasons I switched to a keto style WOE and cognitive function is one of them. I have definitely noticed my thoughts come together much more streamlined and memory is readily available along with attention and focus greatly increased.
Previously insulin resistant/metabolic damaged
Combination of both.
Anyone go through this?
