    If I want to lose weight while doing keto, do I also have to lower my calorie intake? It was 1600 with my last diet but I didn’t lose much. Serious question

    I did this diet last summer for 1 month. I lost 32lbs. And I never counted calories or took any supplements. I drank a ton of water and basically always made sure my body had food. Simple. It’s easy people. High fat + medium protein + a ton of water will make sure your body is healthy.

    •Ketones. When your blood sugar is running low, your body turns to its glycogen stores for energy. Typically glycogen stores house about 2000 calories of "backup" energy for when you run out of glucose. Like the intelligent machine it is, your body depletes the glycogen stores and then turns to your own body fat for fuel.

    Keto is amazing. I lost 40 pounds in two months. I was doing lazy keto however. I kept my carbs at 20 a day….no sweets fried crap…. No sugar…. I did eat fast food like whoppers and stuff but with no bread. I did drink alot of diet drinks like diet sodas and sparkling waters, but I drank a gallon of water a day. Kept up with my electrolytes and vitamins. I took ketones as well. It was easy and fun but I started eating bread again and now I’m eating candy and sweets like crazy and gained back 10 pounds. When I was on keto, my heart was beating really hard and I was having AFIB…. But when I got off keto, my heart stopped doing that . Idk why, but keto gets a 9/10 for me! Great diet to drop weight and drop it pretty substantially.

    I’m sure lazy keto was the cause of my heart palpitations because I didn’t do strict keto which is way healthier!

    when I’m on the keto diet, can I just stick to one food that’s suggested everyday? and drink a gallon of water everyday. I’m going to cut out sugars, carbs and just do straight protein. I’m saying can I stick to only eggs or like eggs one day then chicken the next then I alternate. need answers

    It’s so funny that it’s a privilege to be healthy, most website offers KETO DIET RECIPE AND GUIDES with an amount of that is sometimes unreasonable yet.

    Is like I’ll tell you how to save money but first you gotta pay me $20 for 3 days trials and $150 for one month fee! Ugh

    What advice would you have for a breastfeeding mama? My son is 2 years old and eats solids so he’s not nursing full time. I’ve heard that a breastfeeding mom would need to keep carbs at 50g a day is this true? Thanks!

    1:50 except oil and green leaves I don’t have anything, means I’m already fasting no worries.

    0:48 it’s just moderate protein not also low protein.

    3:43 the default should be 35% protein after which you can increase it more depending on your needs

    Hello! After years of thinking of exercising, lose weight, eat healthily, and keep on a diet, I decided that it was time to actually take all that thinking into action.

    My stats: F(26); CW: 184 lb/83Kg GW: 130lb/59kg

    I am starting Keto on September 1, 2020, and I am educating myself in the meantime while planning my meals for the month of September. I started 16/8 intermittent fasting and will be doing it together with Keto, eating 2 meals in the day between 12-8—lunch and dinner. On my path to educate myself on this diet, I have come up with a question about macrosa and calories. Can anyone on the Keto diet help me?

    My question: I keep reading that someone in Keto needs to eat a Net Carb: 5g/20g proteins/75g fat. When I used an app called Keto Calculator suggested in the FAQ of r/keto I was given some numbers to intake:

    Protein: 93 (g)

    Carbs: 22 (g)

    Fat: 143 (g)

    Total Calories: 1744 (kcal)

    I don’t know how to count macros, but I am educating myself, and now I wonder if I have to adjust the macros to Net Carb: 5g/20g proteins/75g fat, but not the calories? Thanks for reading and for giving advice.
