Keto blood counts

0
0

I have been on the Keto diet for a month. I keep my carbs under 20. I have journaled on myfitnesspal to watch fats and proteins and carbs. I check my blood for ketosis at different times of the day a couple hrs after eating and it’s either .2 or .3. I’ve never gotten any higher. I read about the signs of being in ketosis. dry mouth and fatigue are present. not sure about the breath being different. my weight is pretty much staying the same. I have gained and lost the same 3-4# over the past month.  I’m wondering how to get the blood to .5 and above. the only dairy I consume is heavy whipping cream in my coffee in the morning and I only drink one cup (approx 12oz). I consume water all day. I sleep good. the only meds I take is a thyroid replacement. any suggestions are appreciated.

Hey Sandy! Do you practice Intermittent fasting at all? Also if you have hypothyroid you may need to limit your daily carb intake to 20 TOTAL carbs per day for therapeutic purposes. Losing weight is so individualized it is hard to say why it isn’t coming off. It could be food sensitivities (try eliminating the HWC too and see if it helps.) It could also be from eating too many processed/packaged keto foods and/or not be eating enough vegetables. It sounds like your body may be making changes that aren’t visible on the outside yet. Keep going!
