Why am I not losing weight on Keto?

When someone does keto and intermittent fasting, they typically lose a lot of water weight in the first week, maybe even 8 pounds. But then, in the second week, they are hardly losing weight at all, maybe 2 pounds. Well, the maximum amount of fat you can lose per week with a healthy metabolism is only 2 pounds. 1/2 - 2 pounds in actually really good. 

It's get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy.  Your health comes first, weight loss second. If you start the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting and you're not losing weight, but you notice your hunger is gone, realize that it's working. You just need to give it more time because the body has to get healthy first.

Muscle weighs more than fat per volume. If you have a loss of muscle protein, and you start the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting, your body is going to repair that first. So, you might start to gain more muscle. You might notice that your waist is still shrinking, and that means it's working.

1. Double-check your carbs 

2. Adjust your fasting pattern
