I have been following a strict 800 calorie diet for the past 2 weeks to try and lose some excess weight quickly. The first week I lost 4 pounds but last week I didn't lose any. I am trying to figure out how much exercise I need to do to lose more but I don't understand the exercise page. I am 60 years old and disabled so my exercise routine cannot be very stringent. Any suggestions?

With so few calories your body has gone into survival mode and hanging onto everything. You fooled it the first week but now it's on to you.

1. You're not averaging 800 calories a day if you're not losing.
2. There is no starvation mode.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Yeah do not starve yourself. Try to find a reasonable amount to eat and make sure you have a good amount of protein in there. Good luck. And do not worry so much about the result it will work. We do not see loss every week... weightloss is not linear. As for exercise I do not know what you can do. Is there a health professional you can discuss this with. I think as we age...resistance training (with weights, bands or body weight) is very very important.

It should be providing that what you do eat is balanced & contains fresh fruit & vegetable mostly of green leafy varieties. My you try that keto staff https://whatroseknows.com/hydralyft-reviews/ cause personally for me it helped. 800 calorie diet + that staff (1.5 month).

I do not know your weight or height, but for most people 800 cal. per day is not sufficient to give your body proper fuel. Yes the body will hold onto the weight if it does not get what it needs on a daily basis. There are no quick fixes that last. If you want to be healthy and maintain that weight lose, it requires a lifestyle change, not a short burst of suffering.

800 calories per day is really a small amount, try 1000 a day and make sure you feel full all day. Three meals and more protein then carbs, give it a month then weigh yourself. Weighing everyday can really put a damper on the good work you are doing. For exercise, do some power walking, inside and outside your home, it pumps the heart and burns the calories quick, work up a sweat.

Hi I'm on that diet too if you read the book he mentions losing weight the first week and then not the second but says longer term the weight will start coming off again so if you're patient that should happen. Brisk Walking or equivalent is sufficient on this diet.

Adding a food to list
Search for the food and go all the way to the bottom of the list. There is an option to add new food. Good luck!

New to Keto
It is very usual to see a stall in second or third week. Keep your carbs under 20 net carbs. Measure and count carefully. It will work out!!!
