Not trying to be a smart aleck, truly, but if our bodies have fat to burn (and assuming we’re in ketosis), why would lowering one’s calories cause your metabolism to slow down? If we’re burning our fat stores there should be no deficit, right?
Just my n=1 here, but I lose so much faster when I keep my calories to 1,200 or so. (5’4”, 47, 190#, female, sedentary, for reference)
Can someone help me make sense of this? I’m not a newb (been low-carb for a year) and I have devoured this site, but I have not run across anything that addresses this.
