I'm down 40 pounds.

I bought new pants and shirts yesterday.
The "new" pants that I bought 5 days ago are now too big.

I (my wife actually) dug the tags out of the garbage can yesterday and am going to exchange them.

I bought a new belt.

That is all.

I'm now down 13 pounds. I'll wait for another 20 to come off before I start getting new clothes.

My wife is also doing keto. The other day I pissed her off..

As I stood on the scale she said "I'm only down 1 ounce from yesterday!"

I looked at the scale and yelled "hahahaaha, you're down only an ounce?! I'm down another 4 pounds!!"

She cursed at me as I was laughing uncontrollably..

We t on vacation last week, 3 days in and I fell off of the keto-wagon.

I ate pizza, and chicken fried steak with potatoes and a biscuit and other garbage.

I've never been so sick. After getting back home I water fasted for 2 days and am back on track.

A keto diet works well for losing weight if I do not exercise. I'll lose overall weight, yes. But, IMO, and how it has worked for me - if I want to build muscle and lose fat, I have to lift some weight, do some cardio, and eat a balanced amount of good, complex carbs to fuel the workouts. Otherwise I feel drained and therefore won't do any of it. It certainly is possible for some to exercise on a keto diet, but I can't. If my goal is to lose more weight, I simply take in less calories than I burn. If I want to gain weight, I eat more. Exercise is still a must. Sedentary lifestyle is a killer for me.

How long have you tried the keto before determining this? Just curious because it would likely be typical that a period of adapting to the diet will take time as the body learns to convert fat into energy. For my part, I usually feel far more energy on low carb diets, but my social life makes the diet hard to stick with. Not to mention cold beer or ice cream.

+1 on this. Here in this humidity working outside all weekend, I was alarmed that my sweaty clothes smelled of ammonia. I loaded up on carbs for a couple days, and I think I'm better now.

Maybe 4-5 weeks earlier in the spring. It worked, but I was also not exercising much on purpose. When I picked up the workouts again, I just could not manage it and I didn't want to be sedentary just to let my body get more accustomed to no carbs...so, I'm comfortable with a low carb diet for general overall health.

But, if I want to try to break a personal record in, say, running 1.5k I'll even carb up ahead of time and maybe even take in some glucose. For sure after a heavy lifting workout I will have some form of protein and a quick carb or else I'm drained.

Gotcha! Thanks.

It’s been a long time since I was in state of ketosis, many years. I don’t remember it in relation to excersize. I have cut way back on carbs however to good effect, though not intaking as much fat as this keto diet suggests either. I think for me, a balanced diet of mostly Whole Foods is where it’s at. Less ice cream anyway.

So, has anyone else doing the ketosis diet noticed an ammonia odor with sweaty conditions? I asked both of my doctors, and neither of them appear to even have an opinion. Only one offered advice; "drink plenty of water".
