re: The Official 2020 Ketogenic Lifestyle Thread & Keto Coaching by OleWarSkuleAlum
Like I said in that thread, bunch of uneducated fricks making stupid comments. But honestly that is who usually see in the real world.

For example, a friend of mines wife heard about "macros" what ever that is supposed to mean and asked me to help her. I assumed she just wanted her macros adjusted for body comp and weight loss and she understood how to count then etc. I plugged the info into my calculator and sent the macros, ratios and total Cal's over. She replies, wtf is this and what does it mean, I thought you were sending me a diet?

When I told her she asked for macros and I assumed she know how to count them, she was like no, I thought it was a type of diet, heard about it on TV.

Most of the general public is clueless on most things as evidence by that shite show of a thread

Technically only the induction period of Atkins is keto. Most people just ride the induction period.

That thread makes my head hurt.

Agreed. When I was losing all of my weight; the stall from working out was EXTREMELY disheartening. The only thing that mattered to me was seeing the number on the scale go down, and I imagine a lot of people are like that. You can obviously argue that is a horrible mentality to have as reshaping your body probably should be the goal. That said, it's hard to stay motivated when numbers stall, and we all see ourselves in the mirror daily so it's really tough to see the changes in our body. Scale changes are something you can see and keep tabs on easily.

Get a scale that measures body fat % and other metrics and you won’t worry as much about just weight, they have some cheap options for $30-50 on amazon. I lost 13 lbs over 3 weeks when I first started Keto and then my weight stalled at 202, luckily my scale continued to show a decrease in body fat and that’s good enough for me. I’ve gone from 15.5 to 14.2% over the 1st month and that number will continue to drop even if weight doesn’t go down drastically.

Also too much protein can be a bad thing, google Gluconeogenesis. If you truly want to have a better understanding of the purpose of the keto/paleo diet and how the body works I recommend reading 21 day reset by Mark Sisson, it’s repetitive at times but its great for gaining an understanding of why the body does certain things. It also has a bunch of good keto meal recipes and recommendations.

I use one of those scales but they're pretty unreliable. Taking measurements and progress pics are better ways to track progress and reduce reliance on the scale
