to get into ketosis most people need to be below 20 net carbs and not too much protein, high fat is the name of the game. if you are serious about doing a true keto diet you need to go to one of the many websites that help you understand the whole process.

It really helped me get on track that and rigorous detail on what I was eating. keeping track in a written format helps you figure out where you are on the diet.

the other thing I learned is I can not eat however many calories I want. I have to restrict my calories to below the level of maintaining my weight. I filled in the chart to get my calories for daily level to lose weight. I also use the food calculator to keep track of my macros. while it is not perfect it really does help a lot

you need to start at 20 net carbs to get into ketosis. and you need to make sure you are not eating too much protein. 70% fat 5% carbs and %25 of protein. having too much carbs or protein will prevent you from getting into ketosis. once your body has adjusted after a couple months you may be one of the lucky ones and raise your carb level a bit. but induction is definitely 20 net carbs. I did not realize that eating too much protein would knock me out of ketosis and harmed my diet for months. now it is slow and steady

Avocado in Induction?
thank you, it has been a struggle, I could not figure out why I was not losing weight and some people over at the ketosource site gave me some good pointers. I was eating too much calories and eating way too much protein. hopefully now I will get things going better. couple pounds this week is at least going in the right direction

Is it possible to modify recommended carbs:
I think that is where I set up mine. maybe try a different diet for set up. I am on atkins kenetic diet so mine is set at 5% of carbs
