I did the BSD sometime ago, but fell off the wagon in a big way with various stresses. However, I decided to get back on track this year with 16:8 fasting and drinking much more water. I sort of then fell into eating 800 calories as I didn’t feel hungry, so decided I should just commit to fast 800. I’ve lost 4.5kg in Jan (I’ve 30kg to lose), which I’m OK with as I always lose slowly (45 year old female).
I’ve been recording all my food on myfitnesspal, so I can track macros and calories. I read the book at the weekend, but I couldn’t really find anything on macros, and when I input the recipes into myfitness pal, there were big variations in the calorie count.
My carbs (gross) were averaging 47g per day last week, having reduced from 87g per day in the first week as I was easing myself in. They mainly come from veg so net would be lower but myfitness pal doesn’t track that. I have been in keto according to my ketostix pretty much from the start (I have also started weight training 3x per week). Last week was my lowest loss (.5kg) but my lowest carb week. My question is whether I should cut carbs further for faster loss, or would that be pointless if I’m already in keto?
Any advice appreciated – Thank you
