One week of NK. Gained 5 pounds.

I'm new at this and I need to get better at figuring out meals. Mistakes - too much protein. Too much food. I'm hungry a lot. I'm sure after a while I'll actually get to ketosis and the hunger will let up.

I signed up for the free keto meter (thanks for the link).

I've read a zillion keto websites and I'm confused. You guys are great, though, awesome!

Still trying to figure out how to use a web tracker to track my statistics. My tracker [*Site edited by moderator. Please see link for details: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ma...hone-apps.html *] has sure changed since I used it a few years ago. Much more complicated. I'll figurework out something eventually.

I'm sleeping well - too well - waking up late. I like to measure my BS first thing in the AM but I'm sleeping till noon. Oops.

I've had a couple of happy days - I want more!

Coffee & cream has been a meal several times. Fills me up really well.

No Atkins flu, thank goodness.

On to Week 2 Today, day one.

Breakfast - leftover steak, eggs, spinach and butter/olive oil

Lunch - coffee

Dinner - hamburger, cheese & egg.

Someday I'll figure out if that's a good amount of carb, protein and fat - and also I'll figure out what the optimum amounts are for me.

Thanks all

When I get hungry I come here and read all the keto recipes. Yummm.

It is really important to give the amounts of the foods in order to give any advice. How much steak and spinach? How big a burger and what if any condiments? As the say, the devil is in the details!

That's exactly what I thought. For what I can grasp the most important thing in this WOE is to figure out how much protein you need to maintain your muscle mass and still be able to lose fat

It is pretty hard to gain 5 pounds of fat in a week, unless you stuffed yourself with carbs. I am sure that your weight gain was only water. If you eat very low carb with moderate protein, you will lose the weight. Sometimes it takes a while to tweak your diet so that it works for you. Everyone is an individual.
