Started Keto back in April. Got more serious in May. Now June and no changes. Never seen a drop in weight. I had been worried about not being in ketosis after so long, so switched to breath meter. Now I know I’m in ketosis (don’t bother with pee stix) and usually breathe a 1.5 to 3 first thing in the morning. Sometimes I check other times of day, but think of the AM reading as the standard. I had been frustrated that I was not reaching ketosis, and it was suggested here I eat even less carbs. I did that and switched to a breath meter. Not sure if did anything, but I got into ketosis, or had been and didn’t know it.
After a few months I really have seen no results. I feel the same and look the same. I’ve not seen any huge weight loss and if anything have seen some of both loss and gain, but only a pound or two. I saw this before and it was suggested that I am running too much. So I switched to HIIT three times a week for 30 minutes. Seems like none of these changes have made any positive difference. Now the weight and body comp measurements are all taken off my scale, so perhaps it’s not accurate. But for weeks I’ve stayed at the same range of numbers. Weight at 207.2 to 210, 29.7% body fat, muscle mass 139-140, body water 50.1%. BMR 1725. This diet seems to have done nothing.
Currently my calorie intake (use a keto tracking app) shows my averages for the past week at 6%, 24%, 70%. I know my protein is over, but I try to get a lot of protein since I exercise. I had been frustrated that I seemed to eat none, but now just accept that I want more protein that was recommended. My monthly total calorie average is 1733 intake. The app wants me to eat 2331, and that seems so high. I used to eat 1800 calories and was losing weight when doing a lot of cardio.
Right now the only things I feel I know to change are eat more fat (not sure that I should) or add more exercise. I want to go back to the gym, but still closed due to pandemic. Hopefully opening very soon.
