Hi all, firstly I’d like to say I’m loving the forum it’s extremely helpful and a great bunch of people.
So I’ve been on Keto for 11 days and have shifted 11ibs yay!. I’ve managed to avoid the dreaded flu so very happy so far. I’ve followed a clean keto diet as best I can. I’ve been pretty strict on my macros and have generally stayed under 20g of carbs a day but I’m usually about 800 calories short in my daily consumption. Truth be told I’m usually short by 800 to 1000 a day according to my fitness pal. Is this the issue?
I start the day with a bullet proof coffee with butter and mct 8, I then have a chicken salad with blue cheese, mct 8 oil, olives… And then for dinner a steak or salmon with veg stir fried in butter and olive oil. Pretty much the same most days. My coloric intake should be around 2200 calories a day according to my macro calculator.
Here’s the rub. My mmol has been at or around 5.4 the whole time, it hardly ever moves. I was going to the gym but the weight loss stalled a week or so ago so I stopped gym after reading a few posts on here and weight came off again. And now I’ve stalled for the last 3 days. Mmol this morning 5.4 so still in ketosis.
Should I eat more? I’m kinda stuck. Any help gratefully received.
