As the title says, I am not very happy with my progress so far, I have been on Keto for around eight weeks, and in the first four weeks, I lost one stone, and I was delighted. Unfortunately, I have many medical conditions. I was taking a considerable amount of insulin, and I could not lose weight for the life of me.
I started Keto and immediately started losing weight. I had severe headaches and a constant need to urinate which have not yet settled down; however, more importantly, I have gained 4 pounds in the last two weeks. This week I have gained 3 pounds, and last week I gained 1 pound, and I’m a little confused about what is going on. I am in Ketosis as my meter shows I am around 1.6- 1.7. I am certainly not overeating, and I have cut down the amount of fat I eat as I was advised to do so
I take electrolytes every day to ensure that I am not deficient in electrolytes. I hardly have any carbohydrates. The only carbohydrates I have will be from sprouts or green beans that I have with Meat in my Evening Meal. I may have a cup of coffee with butter when I arise and possibly a couple of boiled eggs at Lunch, and before I retire to bed, I will have Some Greek natural yoghurt with some blueberries.
The only thing I have done differently in the last eight weeks is I have taken a total of 270 antibiotics for an injury I had to my arm, and I have just been put back on another course of antibiotics that ends on Thursday for mastoiditis this will explain my excruciating headaches, can anyone please advise what is happening, my blood sugar has risen to over 13 my blood pressure has gone up this morning 167 89, and my doctor wants to speak to me next Friday about adding more medication to the five tablets I already take for my blood pressure, I’m perplexed I was under the impression that going Keto would make things better, but unfortunately for me, I seem to be going in the opposite direction,
I understand that it takes time for things to change, and it doesn’t happen overnight, but my numbers are going in the opposite direction.
