  • I have had 3 nights in a row with vivid dreams, I had assumed I was just being awakened in the middle of them. Interesting. But sleep quality is through the roof!

      I'm frustrated. I want to make sure I don't sound like one of those that whine because they haven't lost anything because I do understand that it happens sometimes. However, I've GAINED weight and I'm in ketosis. I don't understand and I'm frustrated. I haven't fallen off the wagon, I'm exercising, drinking plenty of water and have a ton of weight to lose. Here's what I've tracked the last week. I think my blood ketone monitor arrives today...I hope. Thoughts anyone?

      Fat Protein Carbs Ketosis

      P.S - The Ketosis column is a grade I give based on the color it matches on the ketostix. The 4 is purple. The 3 is moderate.

      Do you eat dairy? Dairy always stalls my weight loss. I did have one tablespoon of blue chesse dressing this week though. My problem with dairy is when I start eating it, I can't quit. I love cheese, cream etc..but it seems to cause huge cravings for me. The very small amount of blue cheese dressing this week did not send me into a dairy craze. Anyway, maybe look at your dairy consumption and re-evaluate(if you do dairy) Just my thoughts.. Happy Friday!

                Paula, fantastic insights! I honestly believe that sleep is the key.
                Thx - any suggestions to stop cravings late at night?? (Weak point) - Since this is my first week back, I feel a bit low on energy, so have only been doing intervals (walk/jog/sprints) and not much intense exercise like weights. Guess that is normal while your body adjust.

I'm at 201 pounds. I never thought I would see this weight ever! I broke the dread 203 hump. 203 has always been the weight that I reach and then something bad happens in my life that adds stress and I start to eat emotionally and throws everything out of whack. I'm almost to my next mini goal of 199.

                  @Paula, with all the stressors you've had this past week, you're still kicking butt! WTG!!!!!

                  @mks It looks as if you have just lowered your macros for NK to be in your range for fat loss. I would still give it another couple of weeks and see what happens from there. Rome wasn't built in a day and you can't expect change to happen rapidly. Give it time.
                  Congrats :-)

I will weigh in the morning. I am one of those psycho people that could weigh 12 times a day..Since I started Paleo/LCHF I am only trying to weigh once a week(Saturday morning) Ill update tomorrow if I the scale is kind. Also, just on a side note, I have been having vivid, bizarre dreams this week. Anyone else experience this while on Keto?
                    I had them at first too.

                      Same here. Maybe we could get the goblins from The Hobbit to star in the endorsements.

                          Thanks! Congrats on the loose clothes. Belt time! And yes, I have been having really vivid dreams lately. Normally, I don't remember my dreams at all period.

                          • I really appreciate the responses ladies. I don't do dairy except HWC in my espresso in the morning. No sugar (very little fruit even) either. I get so paranoid when the weight starts going backwards. I do agree with each of you that it might be a little too soon to freak out. The protein/fat ratio is also something that could use some work. I'm on MFP under my same sign on as here if anyone feels like taking a look.

                              Get some L-glutamine powder and put up to a tsp under your tongue. Seriously. It tells your brain it is getting the glucose that it is craving.

                              "Due to its ability to cross the blood brain barrier,L-glutamine is a wonderful way of providing glutamic acid to the brain. Many people think that, like other amino acids, this provides more neurotransmitters to the brain, but this is not the case. Actually, L-glutamine provides the glutamic acid that the brain uses as fuel (the only other substance the brain uses for fuel is glucose). Glutamine can block cravings for alcohol as well as sugar. This key benefit can be used in individuals as a diet aid. Taking one capsule or one quarter teaspoonful of L-glutamine at the onset of sugar or alcohol cravings has been shown to deter these feelings. This may not work in all individuals, but the non-toxic nature of this harmless food additive and the many other benefits that can be derived from this supplement make it worth trying."
