WEEK 2 ADDING VEGS.....already out of ketosis??

With July 4th being celebrated nationally on Monday, I had to weigh in on Tuesday July 5th after a rough first week. I lost 6.2 pounds in the first week and am very happy. I stuck with protein only until today (Wed) because I was given the week 2 diet plan a little late. MY QUESTION IS......I added a total of 1 cup of vegs for the day to my protein for dinner tonight. Earlier I had a 1/2 cup of raspberries as part of my lunch. I tested for ketones tonight and I am hardly registering!!!! I am afraid I have gone out of ketosis!!!! Is this normal? My food for the day: 1/2 cup egg beaters...1 serving string cheese...1/2 c raspberries...1/2 c green beans....1/2 c summer squash...2 oz. of chicken...tons of water. What has happened????

Test yourself in the morning. The food that you described should not kick you out of ketosis. If you still not registering - I was told that some people never show ketosis when they add veggies or they exercise very hard. I am sticking to the plan and my best is a "trace" - but I am still losing (85 lb total) - so don't get panicky, just monitor and see what happens.

Good luck!

I agree to test in the morning. If I test at night I don't always show. Plus if I test in the morning after a hard run the night before I won't test in ketosis either. Lots of things effect your level's not just the foods. Keep following the program to a T and keep testing for ketosis and talk to your clinic next week to see what they say. Don't worry about it yet, it's too early to tell.

Welcome to the group!

Take a look at the thread noted here and you will find an answer to almost every question you may have about ketosis:

Flash 64 I too had the same problem. maybe on the third morning of week two i was barley in Ketosis. I called the clinic and this is what they told me. I may have justed added to many carbs back to soon. Week one was no more then 7 carbs a day. But week two day two and three I had 15 and 16.5 carbs a day. They were the good and approved carbs but my body just I guess could not handle it. So I cut back on the carbs to about 10 a day and am right back in ketosis. I hope this helps I am still in week 2 so please listen to the senior members I am still learning this too, Good Luck
