Hrm . . . So I think I have a fair grasp on the whole low carb/high fat ketosis fat burning thing. But Calories in/Calories out seems to work for people too (though it makes them miserable and their bodies try to strike a balance resulting in fatigue or increased calorie intake or both, etc)
What I am wondering, though, since I seem to be eating less now that I'm scarfing down loads of fat and consequently not being hungry all the time, is whether the weight loss is from ketosis (assuming I am indeed achieving it) or the reduced calories, or both?
Other than the initial glycogen/water dump when I first started, I don't seem to be losing weight any faster than I ever did on a reduced calorie diet (1-2 lbs a week). And for the record, I'm fine with that. By all accounts it seems the healthiest way to go.
I'm just wondering how the two work together (ketosis and calorie reduction) or if they even work together at all.
