This is very interesting. I have been stalled for weeks and have been trying to figure out what is going on. I usually fast until after I workout, but then eat 3 meals. I also usually eat pretty close to my 25 net carbs everyday, I find it helps with volume. Do others find they need to cut out the carbs completely?

How do I find you on Facebook? Hi Ronni, We have a facebook group and a page! I started to think that was it for my weight loss. I am so happy I found this pin. I was starting to gain weight again. I started to eat the beef with butter for lunch every day for five days and lost 4 pounds. I look amazing I feel amazing and I just have to thank you for your amazing advice. Anyone know if coconut like a fresh, real coconut, not dried or sweetened is ok on the keto diet?
I love it, and it tastes like a treat! I did this fast for 4 days and lost 4. After the 4 days I made sure to track my food and fat intake so I could on the plan and figure out what caused me to stall in the first place. Most of my protein I ate after the stall had the same amount of fat in either butter or oils.
Doubt, you just breakfast the coffe? Then lunch and dinner meat with butter? Hello, i was interested in doing this. On the second day I added a small amount of grilled onion to the beef but very little because of the carb count. I also second the issues with keto approved sweeteners. I made some keto mini cheesecakes last weekend and my weight went up I only ate 2 in 2 days, everything else was normal keto for me Only time I have issues with major stalling or reversals is when I use sweeteners.
Not going to make that mistake again! I did this and I lost weight. Thank you for sharing this. I wanna do this again but I kinda wanna try something other than ground beef. Something simple and quick. Again thank you so much for sharing. Thank you for you post and all this information. I am still gathering as much info as I can.
This was a great article. I had a question about the app you use. Does it have a bar code scanner or do you have to manual put in the nutrition values? When looking at your macros, how does your ground beef come out so low?
With a cup twice a day and 3 tbs butter each time my calories were at a little over with just those 2 meals, but yours also includes bpc and are still lower than mine. What app are you using to track it? Hi, I, too, had a stall on Keto. How did your body react when you went back to regular Keto? Did your weight fluctuate or did you keep losing? When I went back to my normal keto diet, I continued to lose but at a slower pace.
I was so excited it was still going down!!! If I stall again, I plan to do this same Beef and Butter fast again! Maybe a dumb question — but what percentage fat was the ground beef you used? Seems like the higher the better, right? Thank you so much for sharing your experience!
My struggle with vegetables is making sure I get enough fiber — how would I do that without veggies in my diet? I avoid all grains and legumes.
There is a podcast called 2ketodudes. They go into the nitty gritty science of how and why keto works. But for a nutshell answer to this question: This is why when starting on keto you urinate a tremendous amount. However, as your body flushes out water it also flushes out electrolytes sodium, potassium and chloride. Magnesium is also important. Low electrolytes can cause leg cramps, headaches, heart palpitations and some other nasty symptoms.
Colored salts pink, gray contain minerals such as potassium and magnesium so those can be helpful on a keto diet. Salt your food and you can even put a bit in your water — not so it tastes like saline or salt water but just enough to get a bit in your diet without changing the taste of the water.
You will often see keto community blaming low sodium for leg cramps. I work in a medical lab. I tested myself every week for months. When I had leg cramps my sodium was perfect but my magnesium was very low. I now take a daily multi-vitamin and choose foods high in magnesium like spinach, avocado and almonds and I salt everything with pink Himalayan salt. But, find what works for you.
When starting out, take careful notes on what you eat and how you feel. Google foods high in electrolytes and magnesium and choose ones you like and that fit into your keto lifestyle. Awesome this is the most straightforward advice to date, and just adaptable. Others made me think I was doing something wrong.
