My wife is so frustrated right now, and I could really use some collective wisdom to help her. We have both been keto since October, starting initially with a blood sugar detox by Mark Hyman in August. She’s lost over 40 lbs since then but has stalled out since December.
Her macros are in check. She’s eating at a pretty significant calorie deficit, about 1000 per day or less. She only eats 2x per day and when she does it’s all real food nothing processed. Lots of water, one cup of decaf with a splash of heavy cream. Any carbs she eats are incidental from vegetables.
She got a Ketone blood meter the other day and has been checking to see if she’s even in ketosis. First test showed 0.4, next day 1.2, and today 0.4 again. She’s super frustrated, and I don’t know what to do to help her. She also had a blood panel done by her doctor last week that showed no Ketone in her urine.
One other factor to consider is that she has rheumatoid arthritis. Since going keto she feels much better, but she still has weight to lose and seems stuck. Would greatly appreciate some advice from someone who has successfully dealt with this issue!!
