Quick background, I’m just under 5’7" and started at 186lbs, 6 weeks ago. I already had a very strict diet due to an allergic disease I have (over the last 2 years) so becoming keto was a matter of cutting out rice,potatoes, gf flours, fruit, sugar, honey and cereal.
In the first 2 weeks I lost 9lbs, but then I gained it all back and so did a fast (62 hour, felt great, didn’t overeat when ending it) and now I’m at 182.
I just thought I would have lost more weight by now?
What I eat on a typical day- 2 fried eggs, 4 bacon and a handful of green leafies or scrambled with mozzarella. 2 bpc.
Skip lunch or have the unwich from jimmyjohns/chipotle (chicken, lettuce, peppers, cheese, guac)
dinner is usually chicken thighs/salmon/beef in the cast iron with Brussels sprouts or steamed cauli rice.
Sometimes I snack on olives, macadamia nuts or pork rinds. And sometimes I skip breakfast and/or lunch. Rarely I will have some keto cookie (cream cheese, butter, almond flour, swerve) or a very small individually wrapped piece of dark chocolate (4g carbs). (That happened 2x in 6 weeks. And I had some blueberries and HWC 2x too)
I have good energy, actually went to the gym for the first time in years! But I don’t look any different at all
