I watch a lot of Dr Eric Berg on You Tube and he has a place on FB where many people share their concerns and pictures!!
All of this is so very helpful!!
We all are different and need to get to know our bodies!!
Starrhae ~ I really enjoyed reading your post today! I am 55+ and too have a slow metabolism. Weight comes off slow and steady too. I am going to stop weighting myself every morning, because as I mentioned to Jabbok, the scale doesn't always tell the truth. Measuring yourself is better, and as you have mentioned getting to know our bodies is the key to getting healthy! Thanks.

Things that go wrong with the Scale

Just wanted to share some info about weightloss vs the scale. It is so important to be aware of all the things that can go wrong with “scale weight.” There are all kinds of reasons for a temporary upward fluctuation in scale weight that have nothing to do with fat gain or loss. Just to name a few:

Hormonal fluctuations (women in particular will retain more or less water weight, depending on the time of the month).
Bowel movements A little gross to think about, but this can make a 1-2 pound difference in the “scale weight.”
Food in your stomach The average person eats 3-5 pounds of food per day. Don’t weigh yourself once in the morning before breakfast and then get discouraged when you “gained” a few pounds by the evening!
Clothes Are you wearing different pants? A sweater? A bulky belt buckle? The scale doesn’t know the difference between your clothes and your body.
Water retention from carbohydrates This is the reverse of the initial rapid water weight loss. Remember that every gram of carbohydrate stored in the body comes along with a few grams of water (different studies put this between 3 and 4 grams of water per gram coffee of carbohydrate). Increasing carbs can be helpful for fat loss in the long run, but it can also cause water weight gain in the short term.
Salt intake Salt is not bad for you, but it can cause you to retain water.
Caffeine intake Caffeine is a diuretic (causes you to lose water). On the other hand, if you decide to quit coffee, you’ll hold on to a little more water weight.
Medications Birth control pills, steroids, and antidepressants can all cause water retention.
Gaining muscle Another huge reason why the scale lies is that it measures muscle as well as fat. If you’re doing any kind of strength training or muscle-building exercise (you should be!), you may be gaining muscle. Muscle will show up on the scale as “weight” just like fat – it’s all pounds, so it all counts. But muscle is the kind of weight you want more of.

The upshot: the scale measures total mass, but not all mass is equal. Constipation, your belt buckle, monthly water retention, and food in your stomach are not fat gain. Muscle gain is not fat gain. Fixating on the day-to-day scale weight is a perfect recipe for getting completely mired in these little details, and that’s just a miserable roller-coaster nobody wants to be on.

Good morning ladies hope you are having a good day and have lost some weight.

I am on my 2nd day of the egg fast and was down .8 this morning a nice drop and tomorrow will be 3 weeks since I started Keto I am hoping this egg fast will jump start the losses again.

Thanks Tammy for posting about the causes of no weight loss.

Good morning everyone hope your weekend was good.

Tammy thanks for posting the recipe it really looks good.

I am on 3rd day of egg fast down .6 this morning I will either do the 3 or 5 days not sure yet but if I go to 5 days I will need more eggs.

I really want to add veggies back in and also have some kind of meat, I want to make chicken fingers someone posted cutting chicken breasts into finger size pieces wrapping them in bacon and cooking in the oven for about 15 - 20 mins. they sound really good and a quick meal to prep.

Tammy, I made something similar to this last night. Mine are just lazier/easier.....coconut oil, peanut butter, real butter and a pack of splenda. Also put a pecan half in them before they hardened in the freezer. I'm going to let myself have that one pecan half everyday this week!

good for you that is an amazing loss.

Do you think it was the sugar substitutes that were causing the slow down in your weight loss?

For me today I am up .8 not sure why so I will transition off the egg fast as it really didn't do much so I will go back to the Keto eating and keep track of the calories, carbs, fats, protein.

The 3 days of egg fast I lost a total of .6 pounds so for me it wasn't really worth not eating anything else besides eggs, cheese and butter. The .6 is still good as I was stuck for such a long time at the same weight or losing a bit but gaining more back.

Leisha ~ Yeah. I like your idea of adding the pecans! I made them tonight, but instead of layering them I just mixed the coco and peanut butter together using the blender. Didn't have any coconut oil, so instead added a bit more butter and some heavy cream. Chilled them for 1/2 an hour. They turned out good. They definately stop those nasty cravings!

Jabbok ~ Okay. Did you eat anything using salt? That could cause some water retention. I suggest going back on keto. Do you do any exercise? I go to the gym at the rec center 3 X a week. I think it is paying off now, ''cause I just measured myself this morning, and found out I have lost an inch around my middle, and chest areas. That counts as a NSV, (non-scale victory). I did wi this morning and am down 1 pound from the 2 lbs I had gained prior. Hope this helps!

Jshaf ~ congrats on losing 8lbs! Did eliminating the sugar substitutes help?

Oh... you'really such an inspiration! One hundred and four pounds is a huge, huge loss! WTG!!

Doing pretty well, Tammy, thanks. Intermittent fasting continues to work amazingly!

About the sleep thing ... you must be referring to the stress I posted about on another thread. Right now I'm dealing with some awful stuff ... totally blindsided by son's marital problems. Sleep is getting better with mindfulness meditation.

Hello Everyone,

I got back from vacation on Monday and I'm caught up with all the after vacation accumulated tasks.

I missed one official weigh in Tuesday, so from yesterday 11lbs lost over the two week period. I have started 16/8 IF this week.

I hope every one is well. Kudos to Jshaf for his amazing loss. Everyone take care.

Allan

everyone have a good Keto day.

Tammy I don't put salt on anything and I have been drinking lots of water so I am going to ride it out and get back on Keto. I am going to add more chicken to my meals like thighs and legs this way I will have a bit more fat in my meals.

I am going to start Yoga this week to ease back into some exercise then will start doing some weights again hoping to lose inches even if the scale isn't moving.

Tammy wtg on the non scale victory!

Hello

I have been following a ketogenic diet for 13 days and have lost 3 pounds so far. I think I take in too much heavy creamer as I like to mix it in with my diet root beer. That may be why I have been stuck at the same weight for 4 days. On a positive note, I never go hungry like with low calorie diets. I am always satisfied. I have also added in the gym and, hopefully, that will help the scale go down some. Good luck to all of you

That's amazing! Congrats!

How much total weight did you have to lose? What methods are you using? I'd love to hear what you're eating and doing, since the one thing I've found with these lifestyles is that each person has to tweak and see what works for them.

Can we talk about constipation? All the things I can think of to eat to combat this are off the table.

What are some good methods for dealing with this problem? I can't go 3 days between poops.
I've been trying to remember my magnesium every night before bed but that doesn't always cut it. I am trying to watch my cheese intake but some days it's my go-to as I'm running out the door.

I am following Dr. Eric Berg. He has lots of YouTube videos. I'm not sure which video I watched, but I was diagnosed with acid reflux/GERD last October. I followed his advice and am taking a liquid probiotic and his Gall Bladder Formula, plus drinking apple cider vinegar and taking apple cider vinegar supplements. The main thing that has really helped my digestion is the Gall Bladder Formula. And, yes, this has everything to do with constipation or at least it has for me. Plus it has helped the acid reflux tremendously.

I do alot of what Dr Berg suggests, the amount of veggies being the exception, I take some veggies with every meal but no where near what he suggests. I take a Apple cider vinegar supplement and try to have some sour kraut mid week to help with gut health.

started at over 450 so have a lot to loss, want to get to the low 200's and if I feel like it might go for 180. don't know where I will land but anything beats where I started. already feel great and can see myself eating this way for a long long time. will never look at the standard american diet the same way!

thanks, when my weight loss slowed I looked in the mirror and knew while i had lost a lot I still am a big guy with plenty more to loss. made adjustments and back in the saddle I am. this is not only a commitment to myself but also to my late father. I wished I had been healthier when he was alive so I could have done more with and for him. made a commitment to him that I was not going to live like I had been living for the rest of my life. I wanted my healthy life back. each time I come to the half way point of my walk on the local trail I set by the water fall and say to the heavens "Dad I am back, living my commitment, not going to let you down" this means a lot to me, and I can in no way fail this time around.

jshaf ~ Wonderful news! I just love hearing testimonies like yours. So inspiring!! Your dad would be so proud of you. Commitment is such a good thing to do. It is helping you focus and reflect on what is truly important to you. You are on your way bud! KWTGW!!
