Hi all, ive just spent ages reading all the stall points and some great info in there on fasting and food types and macros.
I am having a struggle, I got down to 96.5 kg on Dec 24 - then over xmas I stuck to my routine, however I had added in some brownie and things i found on this site using stevia - I always checked my BS/Ket levels with a blood meter 1-2hrs after eating and next morning and it seemed the sugar alcohols had no effect on me at all so i was happy. I kept to my macros 70-75 fat 20 ish protein and 5-8 carbs - fibre etc net carbs of 20 ish or less. My daily Kal intake is around 1600-1700 with a goal of fat loss.
I was exercising up to Dec when I hurt my back, my weight loss was always slow 101 in Sept down to 96kg in Dec, i was ok while i knew i was progressing.
I dont weigh myself often but When I did at end of Jan i was back up to 98.5 so I had gained 2kg in a month?? So I am confused, I have cut the sugar alcohols out, measured my food daily, cut out anything suspect like the odd piece of dark chocolate 85 - and i have measured my ketone and bs levels 3 x a day for a week.
My ket levels dont go above 0.7 really, mostly between 0.1 and 0.5 morning noon and night
my bs levels are between 100-120 usually higher in the mornings
I am confused as to why if i need to change something or just get back to exercise or what, i think my kals are low enough to lose and i did already lose about 45-50lb with this same process i am in. I am a creature of habit and easy enough to do the same thing over and over.
Things I eat regular
Nuts (not high carb ones)
would appreciate anyone who can give me some specific ideas to try, i do log my food on myfitnesspal so i watch macros i dont think i should go much lower on kals due to my size. I am quite lean on my abs now but not around my legs and lower back so i must have some to lose cant imagine 98kg is my ideal weight, I suspect about 90kg.
