    zero carb/ketosis

    Primal Fuel
    The search function isn't coming up with anything (which is weird because I know I've seen these posts before). I was wondering if anyone has attempted to eat zero carb or stay in very low ketosis (sub 20g carb) for more than a few days? Any suggestions?

    I have been hovering around 20-30 net carbs for the last 2.5 weeks--not quite as low as you are looking for, but I am feeling good on it.

    The PaNu blog has some interesting info pertaining to vlc/zero carb. I think SteakNChop eats meat-only...

    never knew that was a ZC or even VLC site. My stance on this has shifted and I'm more VLC friendly now, I don't think you guys are nuts.

    I did it for over eight months when I started. It's not hard; it just requires doing some tracking in DailyPlate or FitDay. What kind of suggestions are you looking for?
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I'm going on week 4 and have stayed <20g of carbs. I feel fine. I heard that it takes about 6 weeks to adapt completely, so I'm sticking to it at least til then. I think I'll stick to it for 3 months, then start adding carbo load days on weekends...maybe. I don't know yet.

    The only problem I have so far is the bathroom thing...not quite regular yet. I'm at a 1 or 2. (OMG, I can't believe I'm discussing this in public...*red faced*) But I just ordered some magnesium oxide and hope that helps.

    +1 to eelnus. Number 2's for me are every 4 days on VLC. Though I wasn't uncomfortable at all with it like I'd be on a grain diet.

    My throat starts hurting when I go VLC and get keto breath. Which is weird and the only reason that I keep my carbs near 35-40g per day.

    That never worked for me. 150g+ of fat and nothing.
