So I'm trying to do Keto
And I think I've hit ketosis and super happy.
Because of my size and build I've been working at 40/45g carb a day although I know some recommend 20g a day or less
I'm only done with day 3 of keto, we shall see how the coming weeks go. But I've not felt ill, oddly I've not felt particularly hungry and struggled to get my calorie intake up to 1800, been pretty much at 1550 give or take the last 3 days (and my tdee is calculated for 2700 calories maintance)
I'm surprised how good I feel, how I don't feel like I'm starving. I think it is suggested fat equates to 70% of calorie intake but I just cant manage that lol
But broadly my carbs are at 10-12%, protein is 28-30% and fat at 58-62%
Early days but feeling VERY optimistic
The only concern is I really can't see much colour difference between 1.5 and 4 mmol/L on the testing strips so dont know where I am exactly?
