  1. How much do you weigh? You should be talking to a doctor if you're trying to burn that many calories in a week. That's a pretty insane deficit by any metric. Why are you doing this anyhow?


    Well I’m not trying to eat that little I just feel full from what I eat all day so I don’t eat very much. And I’m 5’10 and weigh 148. I’m not “overweight” I just want to lose weight so I can be happy with myself. And talking to a doctor would take forever to get an appointment

  2. Yes, be patient. Go over your diet and see how many calories you take in per day, maybe you can cut back some more. I have t2 diabetes and therefore carbs are my enemy. I do my best to keep them low, but it's difficult to do. Maybe you need to ramp up your exercise to more than 4 times a week. Walk more, ride a bike, go swimming.


    Also what veggies are you eating? Some have a lot of carbs like potatoes and carrots to name a few. Generally root veggies have more starch/carbs.


    Google the glycemic index for the carb count of pretty much any food you can think of, it's eye opening.


    Spinach, green beans sometimes broccoli but no vegetables that are high in carbs. So no potatoes or carrots or any starchy ones. I’m eating probably half the calories I burn every day, if not less half than less than. It’s hard for me to eat enough calories on this diet, but i had assumed that would help me lose weight but apparently not.

  3. Without knowing your exact diet details, simply cutting carbs out isn't going to be what gets you losing weight. An energy deficit, regardless of your source of macronutrients, is what's going to matter. If you cut cut carbs but substitute enough fat in, there's no net benefit in terms of intake.


    You could also be taking in too many carbs to induce ketosis, which is what I'm assuming the aim is. I don't know what veggies you're taking in, though.


    Is there a particular reason you're going with a completely different diet rather than modifying what you're already accustom to? You'd be at a pretty high risk of regaining whatever you do lose.


    I’m staying under 20 net carbs and mostly eating spinach, green beans and other low carb vegetables when it comes to carbs. I’m having trouble eating enough calories actually. I usually eat between 800-1100 calories a day and I always burn 2500-3000 a day

  4. I’m starting my third week of no carbs and no sugar. I’ve been exercising 4 times a week and stayed active every day. The only carbs I eat are from vegetables. I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t lost any weight. I need to lose 10-15 pounds and I’ve seen no change even though I’ve drastically changed my diet and workout routine. Any advice?
