following: reevan's own diet
performance: losing 3.1 lb a week

Used to exercise about three hours a day (school & junior college), including stair climbing - 30 floors. Then stopped as I got closer to graduation. Career was my focus. No exercise = Weight gain. Then tried Atkins diet (1-2 yrs). Worked in the beginning, but health took a beating. Stopped diet + intense stress + major break up (fiance) = gave up on myself. Bad habits + late nights = health condition that caused insulin sensitivity (PCOS)! This led to weight gain of 20 kgs or 44 pounds in just one year :(. Couldn't even bear to see snaps of myself. After much prayer + small surgery = Decided this is it! Went back to gyming + dieting (cutting sugar, white flour & oily stuff). Super dedication = lost 7 kgs in 3 months. Then, injured my spine. There’s an enemy of my diet & health! So bed rest + inability to move + couldn't exercise = only hope - good diet! I couldn’t sit up without a cervical belt. Managed to maintain my weight (yay!). A year later, began walking 1/2 flights of stairs & some walking without a belt. I needed more, so I began to research. I figured it’s all about calorie intake & metabolism. What's the most convenient way to maintain a journal? Google search = found FATSECRET! Started slow last year & managed great results. Then, I went slack. After much struggle, I decided to stick to this. I finally stuck to doiong this in 2012. It wasn’t easy, as I had an allergy attack, which put me on steroids that hinder weight loss.
Achieved significant weight loss in 2013/14. Was healthier, fitter & no trace of spinal injury. Dancing & splitting = highly flexible. Then, an unexpected turn. Mother was diagnosed with cancer. Had to look after her. No exercise + less sleep + nil dieting (lots of refined carbs & fatty foods) + dengue + malaria + uric acid problems = Gained loads. However, I am back on track. In a year's time, I aim to be in the 60s range. Surrendering all in prayer!

Unable to get into KETOSIS after 5+ days HELP!!
I have been reading about the Ketogenic for a couple of months. Remember coming across this :

You may also want to buy some Ketostix Reagent Strips so that you can check to see if you are in ketosis for the first few weeks. However, after the first 3-4 weeks on the plan, the goal is to become "keto-adapted". Once adapted, the body should be burning the ketones for fuel. The stick shouldn't register as deep purple if you are using the ketones as a fuel source. And recently, a blood ketones meter has become available to track ketosis at home. This is a much more accurate way to track your individual ketone levels. See the sidebar on my ketosis page for more information.

Alkaline Water
Hi all, first of I am not going to read the replies to my post because I am not interested in starting wars or arguments. To answer questions on how to alkalize your water without expensive systems, the answer is the the age-old ACV and lemon water. Yes, they do contain acids, but the end products after the digestion of these two have an alkalizing effect on the body. This alkalizing effect promotes a healthier body and metabolism. Metabolism is the key to weight loss. Most of us have sluggish metabolism, which could get worse due to dieting and we could hit the well-known weight plateau. Alkalizing your body can assist you with that. Note: It aids weight loss and promotes health, but is no magic trick, you have to diet and exercise. Peace and God bless you all
