Default Carb creep has stalled me out...

Frustrated! Last month, I tried to be more lenient, epically when the cravings hit at the end of my cycle. Boy did that backfire! I put on 2-3 lbs., and it has stayed with me. I think I am bloated too. I feel tired and hungry all the time, almost like I did before I started. And of course I am craving carby food. My ketosis strips are barely a pale pink.

So I know I have to go back to square one and cut out the nuts and heavy cream that I've been indulging in. Also, I've noticed my egg consumption is down. I think I may scale back of the veggies even, for a few day to jumpstart me back into heavy ketosis and weight loss. My brother is getting married Labor Day weekend, and I want to look good! (and of course be healthier!)

You did better than me. Over the winter I carb crept (creeped?) the 15 pounds I'd lost the previous summer. It isn't coming off as easily this time round.

Default Broke that stall!

Hello! Just wanted to update that I broke my stall! I think what screwed me up was Maltodextrin. I make a stevia "kool aid" mix for my husband, and I was drinking some of it too. However, the stevia was a generic version of stevia in the raw, which measures like sugar.

Since I have stopped drinking that and adjusted my other eating, I am back on track. It seems that I have no problem with liquid stevia, so I will stick with that. I did buy some xylitol and may try that later. I had noticed that I was getting hungry frequently, and craved more carbs. My conclusion was that this was because I was eating too many nuts and too much heavy cream. I'm pretty sure now that the Maltodextrin was the culprit. I will be checking every food label from now on.... Rant over!
