    i was stalled then lost two a few pounds to push me to my current weight 265... i stalled out then added more fat ( few bites of avocado) that week i went down to 263 also had my period (past week) NOW iam right back up to 265 AGAIN!!!!...... so thats why iam so confused as iam eating a plan a high fat low carb style....

    maybe i need to drink more water and add some exercise... i just dont know at this point.. i dont want to start anything else though and yoyo diet
    i chose this bc its easier for me and keeps me far away from sweets and carb laden foods...

    this is tricky lol
    I remember you mentioning that you follow a Keto diet. I have been reading a lot on it, and unless you are working out rigorously you aren't burning the fats amounts you are consuming. That's what I wanted to ask you in my previous post. What exercise routine are you doing? I think most Keto dieters are bench pressing and lifting weights and that is how the Keto is helping them. If you are going to continue on the Keto just make sure you are exercising and utilizing those fats.

    I am a firm believer of balance, looks like you keep a low carb level already, but add more vegetables for their fiber and micronutrient values it will help you with satiety. Try to see where you can cut on fats, definitely I would cut Brazilian nuts.

    In my opinion, which is what you are asking for, is your body is telling you that you have maxxed out on low carb/keto and need a new plan now.
    I would lessen your fat intake substantially, make sure most of fat is the good fats and up complex carbs while staying between 1000-1200 calories.

    I suggest trying that for a week and see what happens.

    I track macros and tend to be 35 - 40% protein, 35 - 40% carbs, 25 - 30% fat and I had one, one week stall so far..otherwise lose steadily. I eat 950 - 1150 cals per week since end of month one. Only at 14 weeks but so far so good for me.

    *all while getting in your 64 oz+ of water, exercise/movement and eating 4 - 6 meals per day.

    Do you have a nutritionist?

    Just looking at what you wrote, it seems clear to me that you're 1) eating too many calories, 2) not eating enough protein, and 3) eating too much fat.

    You're under 30 gms carbs which is practically impossible for me, so kudos for that. Have you read about carb cycling? It's eating very low carb for a few days, then high carb for one day, then back to very low carbs again. It keeps your metabolism fired up. Read up on it. You obviously need to shake things up, imo.

    I agree with what the others said. Seems like way too many calories. And you never mentioned your fluid intake. Everyone talks about the magic 64oz, but recent studies show that drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces is the best for losing weight.....so that means 130 oz every day.

    Bottom line, though, you need to change up something. Your body is obviously not going to give up any more eating the way you have been. More water, less calories, less fat and different excercise routine are definitely a starting point.

    Are you using urine test strips to confirm that you are in ketosis? That's kind of the point of a keto diet and the only way your body will burn fat instead of carbs. Otherwise it's just a high fat diet with too many calories for weight loss.

    And again, what's your fluid intake and excercise routine?

    Yes i do use urine strip and they always say ketosis ,but they are not very accurate espically after first two weeks i know the bloom ketone monitor is though... I want to buy one eventually. Thats the only real way to know. Also if your dehydrated it can give false results. I am probably dehydrated heck since day one of surgery i have been lol its hard to get allll that water in! I try i get so miserable though so full , but i do get in 32oz minium exercise is also hit or miss... Which iam bumping this up as well.... But typical 3-4 days at gym light weighgs 3-5 lbs ellipitcal 15 min and bike or tredmill 10 ... Nothing major ... Its super hard i have major back bone issues which prevent me from pushing hard... Iam hoping i will be able,to,push thru them one day.. But so far 100lbs loss hasnt helped a bit

    Well, your lack of water is definitely contributing to your stall. Your body cannot burn fat without adequate hydration....It's simply biochemically impossible. At your weight you should be getting in 130oz for maximum fat metabolism. Give up a couple hundred calories worth of food and switch it out for a couple 32oz bottles of water and I absolutely guarantee the weight will come off.

    I just wanted to let you know, I follow a ketogenic diet as well. I was sleeved on 6/8/15, and I'm within 2 to 3 lbs of my goal weight. I've been following a keto diet for about 10 months. I believe that your carbs intake is too high for a keto diet. Also, since you're still in the weight loss stage, you might want to bring your fat intake down some, and let your body make up the difference by burning your own body fat. I would also try to keep your meal to 3 a day if possible, with only 1 or 2 snack if you really need them. Try to have a minimum of 3 hours in between meals, and 12 to 14 hours from dinner to the first meal the next day. If you're in true ketosis, you should not be getting hungry that often. Your body needs time of no eating at all so that your insulin levels can come down. Your body cannot burn fat in the presence of insulin. Also, when insulin levels are up, it causes hunger.
    I hope this is helpful. I have done tons of research on the ketogenic diet, and it's become just second nature to me. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.
