Default How Much Fat Should You Eat on a Ketogenic Diet?

This chart and article have been a mind blower for me! I kept trying to follow the ketogenic diet because I love how I feel when I'm in the zone, but I would either start to gain or just stall. I've just recently discovered youtube videos by Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek (read about them on the Kickin' Carb Clutter blog - also so informative!) and I learned why I was having difficulties. I was ingesting too much fat and my body was using that for energy, instead of burning up the stuff I wanted to get rid of! Anyway, maybe this will help some of you as well!

I've gotta tell you, it feels so great to see the scale budge again, very encouraging!

Yes. There's sort of no such thing as a ketogenic diet, just minimally anti-ketogenic diets, it isn't that fat's ketogenic so much as that carbohydrate and to some extent protein are anti-ketogenic.

There is one time I'll force the fat--if I've gone off plan and I'm out of ketosis, appetite sort of gets out of hand for a day or so, I might make some fat-bombish sort of thing just to satisfy the increase in appetite without slowing down the return to ketosis too much, then go back to normal once things have calmed down.

Yes! I've just been so "desperate" to see the dang scale move that I was really confusing myself! Gahh.

For me, fat's best utility (besides being tastytasty) is making my meals so satisfying I don't have to eat again for hours and hours. My key to Intermittent Fasting.

Excellent explanation.
