Haven't experienced full Ketosis yet
 
Started my diet 10/10,,,Messed up first day but got back on track...Just had dull headache one day, next couple days vague body aches and more tired than usual. Sleep has changed...But this is all I have experienced. Have kept my carbs at 20 or below...Using the Coconut oil and Olive oils and butter and cream and fat bombs..Have used recipes also from Linda's low carb menu..I also make sure I drink alot of water..No difference on scales, except maybe gained 2 pounds...I have been walking 40 min a day for 6 weeks now also..Prior to this diet I was on Healthy Solutions for 5 weeks that entailed protein drinks,,fruits and veggies and one healthy meal a day..Lost 8 pounds on that...Any suggestions..Am thinking maybe I should have stayed with the other plan...

Are you tracking how many grams of fat and protein you are eating daily? If I eat too much protein or fat, I gain weight.

It's only been 4 days!! It can take 2-4 WEEKS to get into ketosis for some people. Give it a chance!

OKAY!! so I expected miracles happening already after reading other postings:) Thanks ladies..Will keep plugging away..I haven't been counting the protein or fat,,just making sure I stay at 20 or under for carbs..Guess it's individual and how it works different on everyone..

Just stick to it. I've lost quite a bit of weight even though I don't physically see the difference. Others have. I'm so glad I started doing NK, I'm more active and energetic, I rarely feel groggy or stuffed after eating. Everyone's body works differently, the miracles will happen shortly (you might not even notice). Also, the one thing I learned through this diet is to not be so fixated on the scale, measure your inches because for a while I've stayed the same weight but I was losing inches....Good luck!!!

Make sure you're getting enough fat....it might help to track using one of the popular online sites for that, to get an idea of how much protein/fat you're getting. One thing that can hinder weight loss if you're getting too much protein (which turns to glucose in your blood--called gluconeogenisis). You should be getting the bulk of your calories from fat.

The amount to protein and fat you are eating is equally as important as the amount of carbs.

By the way, although Phinney/Volek give their formula, it was too much protein for Jimmy Moore, and it was too much protein for me. I had to eat less protein than they said to get into ketosis.
