Switching it up
Hi all. I decided to try and switch it up to begin losing some weight as I was doing Southbeach and things just were not progressing. Can you take a look at yesterdays meals to see if I am doing things right?
B - Coffee with 2 pats of butter, powdered creamer and sweet and low
S - Pumpkin seeds
L - Egg salad and a salad with evoo and vinegar
D - Double cheeseburger, minus the bun, with low sugar ketchup, mustard, onion and brocolli and cauliflower medley with butter
D - Sugar free fudge pop and 1 tbsp of PB (not natural because I'm out)
I'm up 3 lbs since starting this which was about 3 days ago. And I feel bloated.
Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!

I am a newby so keep that in mind. I have lost down from 225 to 197 so I have had some success. Some things I have learned : write down everything you eat and drink on some kind of sheet everyday. I made a little form to track total calories, total carbs, net carbs, fiber, protein, fat and water. I find if I don't track everything I slip up and don't know why. I have read several places that our wight can vary as much as 4 lbs due to water retention. So don't panic. Track your wight loss and evaluate week by week. Some people don't have to go to the trouble of writing everything down and they lose weight without it. If I don't write it down and track it is when I slip up and my ketones drop and I don't know why. Be careful of too much protein and artificial sweeteners. The sugar free ketchup and sugar free pop and the sweet and low would kick me out of ketosis. It may not be a problem for you. Keep posting. There are great people here that can help you more than I can. Everyone here wants you to succeed. Hope this helps.

We could help more if you could tell us what the calories and grams of f/p/c are that you are eating daily.

It is good to know up front that n.k. is quite specific in terms of the amounts and types of macro nutrients. It can be more restrictive than some people need.
If you are coming from a s.b. woe, it might be easier and equally productive to do Atkins induction. If you prefer to do n.k., you need to be prepared to micro manage all your foods on a regular basis....consistently.
