I am in ketosis right now (very high!), my carbs intake is way less than 20 g/day and I am gaining weight. I think it's because I am either eating to much or because my body is acting crazy. May be the food I am eating and the fat I am providing is enough to use for my needs and my body doesn't want to start burning from my own fat. Those ketones in my urine show that my body is actually using fat instead of carbs as fuel... unfortunatelly it's not my own fat Crying or Very sad

First of all....

Most of the info you all are spouting is wrong.

A: ketosis is NOT dangerous!

B: you DO NOT need to be in ketosis to lose weight. Ketones DO NOT cause weight loss. They are an energy source when carbs are not present.

C: it's about calories. Calories in - calories out.

If you're in ketosis and not losing weight: it's because you're eating TOO much!!


Amen to that Smile

I have great results with Magnesium whenever I have issues like this. There are many powders out there that you can start with a lower dose and then increase as needed, and most taste pretty good too.
