I started going to the gym 2 months ago (never gone regularly before and now 2 cardio/weights classes every morning) and noticed more fitness but no weight loss. So on the 26th of August I started keto.
Day 2 and 3 I was nauseas, and I had to cut down to one gym class a day for the first 1.5 weeks because I was too fatigued, but then got my energy back. Week 1 I lost 4lbs (not as much as I’d hoped but still good), week 2 I lost 2lbs (less good) and this week I’ve lost none.
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. My fitbit says I’m burning around 2500 calories a day and I’m restricting food to 1350 so that alone should mean weight loss, surely? I’ve been sticking to <20g of carbs per day so I do not know what I’ve done wrong.
The plan for this coming week is lowering the calories and carbs further, but I’m feeling super disheartened. I’ve got a holiday in 2 weeks and, when I started keto and it was 5 weeks away, I really thought I’d be much slimmer for it!
Also, it’s not the “muscle weighs more than fat but you might have lost inches” thing (as my colleagues keep saying) as I don’t seem to fit clothes any better. And it’s definitely not a plateau because I don’t need to lose weight - I’m 5’2" and 12 stone so I definitely do.
Has anyone had this? Does it pick up? Can anyone see any glaring mistakes I’m making?
