For the past four days I have not been in Ketosis. I went to my follow up visit on Tuesday and my nutritionist suggested I go back to doing the 500 calorie protein schedule for three days and i should see a difference. Well it's day two and this morning i was still not in Ketosis. I have only in the past had a few times I was not in ketosis however, it was only for a day and then I was right back on Ketosis...but never consecutively like it is.....has anyone else ever had this problem?

I don't do Medi, but I find this very curious. I am interested in why people who SHOULD be in ketosis aren't. Do you mind saying how old you are and how much you weigh? Do you take any medications such as drugs for diabetes?
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!

How long have you been doing the program? From what I've read here, there are a lot of people who have trouble both achieving and maintaining ketosis. I've been doing this since May, and I stopped testing for ketosis a long time ago. I stay under 40 grams of carbs a day (and about 800-900 on calories), and I lose at a steady rate, so I'm not really worried about it.

But from what I remember, the recommended course of action if you go out of ketosis or stop losing would be to go back to the 500 calories, 10 carbs a day routine. And even then it can take a week or more to get back in ketosis. But that's just what I remember off the top of my head, so you should ask your clinic.

These things work differently for different people, so try not to despair. And if you're losing despite not showing to be in ketosis, I really wouldn't worry about it. If you aren't losing, follow the clinics advice - they haven't steered me wrong yet. :-)

I've been on the program 8 weeks (a restart) and am down 22 lbs. I go in and out of ketosis. I don't know why, but I quit worrying about it as it doesn't seem to affect my weight loss very much.
