I guess that means I'm using the ketones up. I wasn't able to lose weight until I clamped down on protein portions and also set a calorie limit - hey, I'm 58 so it's not as easy as it used to be. I eat as much fat as I can to get to my calorie limit. It's working well for me at about 2lbs / week. I guess if (when) I stall I'll cut back the fat some, tho I wouldn't want calories to get too low. BTW I weigh and measure all my food - its been key.
Thank you for your post. I wonder if you would be willing to share how much protein and fat you are consuming at the moment to lose?

I do weigh and measure everything and have been for quite some time so that is not an issue for me. I have yet to find the sweet spot for loss.
