very discouraged. please help.
« on: June 02, 2017, 06:05:05 PM »
I am about 15 days keto. For the first 3-4 days I had bad brain fog. Day 5-6 it started clearing up. For about the last week I've had almost no brain fog. The, today, I got it really, really bad. My keto pee strips have been testing moderate for the last several days (to almost large- regarding amount of ketones), but I just tested it and it was very light- trace ketones. The last time I ate before today was last night- about 16 hours ago- and today all I have had was 2 tablespoon coconut oil in coffee, 2 tablespoons of almond butter and a chicken jerky stick (3 fat, 1 carb, 15 protein).

Can someone explain this please :(((( it feels like I ate a bunch of carbs and my head is all foggy. Is this normal?

This is the last thing you want to hear right now.

But I would say to stick with Paleo for now - do NOT count your carbs.

Again, take a breath - you don't want to hear this right now.  But slow and steady wins the race.

Please check back with us shortly - let me know how it's going again

You are starving yourself to death. Eat the right foods, but plenty of them. Skip calorie counting. Make sure you are getting lots of animal fats.
