What is the poblem

Hi, I have “trying” to do keto for about 3 weeks now but I think I am doing something wrong.  Initially, I lost 6.4 pounds but in the past 2 weeks, I have stayed at the same weight.  This is frustrating and a little disconcerting.  I am wondering if my prescription topical ointment (which is for a skin condition and contains steroids) may be causing a problem?

    I can’t help with the medical question but I do know that once I lose the initial weight (I’ve started keto a few times now) I tend to plateau for a week or two. Hopefully you have stuck with it. If not, I suggest restarting and remember, you are teaching your body to burn fat so until you make that switch you might not lose a bunch. You have to keep at it for an extended time. On another note, I mix intermittent fasting with keto for quicker results. Not necessarily the healthiest so make sure to listen to your body.

Hey! The first few weeks of keto will be filled with fluctuations. You will initially lose water weight which is great! If you are still noticing a stall think about possible food sensitivities such as an underlying nut or dairy allergy. Try eliminating those for one month and then see if the weight changes. 🙂 Good luck! Becky
