    Also, you might still be getting keto-adapted. Have you checked out Peter Attia's site: The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D. The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D. ? He seems to have a ton of good info regarding performance in ketosis especially.

    Keep rockin' those lifts. You are super-strong!
    I have done deload weeks before, and maybe you're right that it's time for another one.... I just love the gym though. I don't know how I'll spend all of my time!

    Yes I love Peter Attia! For his brain and body knowwhatimsayin

    I knocked myself out of keto accidentally on Wednesday via sundried tomatoes lol. I entered them into my macro app wrong. And last night I had dessert with friends, but that was always planned so I'm not worried. I did fasted cardio this morning and had my first bulletproof coffee to throw me back in quickly.

    A friend of mine who is a doctor (well, will be in 2 more months) also doing primal keto has a blood meter and is experimenting with various things to see what affect it has so it's very interesting for me to watch that. She's found diet soda knocks her out. Bulletproof coffee is a massive ketone spike. As is fasted cardio.

    I might buy myself a blood meter at some point if I keep up with keto, which i imagine I will, i'm loving it!

    Enjoying reading this thread immensely and nixxy, your progress is AMAZING. You are inspiring! But now I read this last bit and am somewhat shocked - diet soda can knock a person out of keto????? Is your friend sure it was that and not some hidden carb?

    Depending on how deep in keto you are and need to be, some artificial sweeteners can be enough to knock you out of keto. Is been a long time since I read it, but I'm pretty sure that the John's Hopkins nurses guide to keto for epilepsy even warns people using that toothpaste can be enough to do the same. Obviously more of a concern for an epileptic person.

    Yeah it's reasonably well documented that some sweeteners drive an insulin spike which knocks you out! I think it varies a lot person to person.

    Can't believe how well keto is working for me...

    I mean, I shouldn't really be surprised. If we look at my weight loss, it goes something like this...

    First 40lb, in about 3months - very low carb (<25), moderate fat, moderate protein. Calories too low, not sustainable method but fast results
    Next 20lb, in about 10months - moderate carb (50-100), moderate fat, high protein. I gained a lot of strength in this time but it was too slow. Way too slow.
    Latest 15lb, 1month - very low carb (<25), high fat, moderate protein.

    The trick really is in the low carb for me. The moderate carb was fine for maintaining and slow losses but the effort in wasn't proportionate to the results out (but I gained muscle and learnt a lot and had a lot of fun with training and I don't regret any of that) but realistically, I'm still overweight and still need to lose a lot more fat.

    I'm having crazy results and feel like I look so different. It's strange. I forgot what progress feels like.

    I had the weirdest conversation with my gym owner the other day about how "tight" I'm looking. Oh god.

    Everyone's commenting on my face - my cheekbones are suddenly all every where (in a good way).

    And besides all of that, I do feel great. I've still been socialising, in fact yesterday I went out for lunch and had lamb, and chicken & jellyfish salad, and prawns... and I've had desserts and things too, obviously knocking me out out of keto, but I've found the quickest way to get back in is to wake up, do some fasted cardio, and have a bulletproof coffee. It's like BOOM.
    But yes I feel great. Positive. More energy. In my first week of keto I was having trouble sleeping which is HILARIOUS for me as a chronic oversleeper. For 8 years now at least I've slept far more than normal... 12-14 hours is my "natural" sleep cycle. So I obviously can't afford to sleep that much and force myself to do 10 hours and I fight the alarm every day.... suddenly on keto and I CANT SLEEP. It was hilarious. But it only happened for 2 nights during the first week. i'm ok now... back to normal but not oversleeping quite as bad. I feel more energised during the day and dont crash.

    Oh keto I love you.

    It was real jelly fish! It didn't really taste like anything... just had a very strange texture. It sorts of "pops" when you bite it.

    Strength training in keto is fine now! Going up! It was really just the first week that I had problems with strength loss and inconsistencies
