Just finished week 3 of my recent stab at CKD. (I like to refeed fri night to sat afternoon, then back in the gym Sunday) The first time I tried I wasnt eating nearly enough throughout the day, and def not enough fats. I've upped my fat intake through the week, but I'm worried I am still doing something wrong. At the end of week 3, I'm only down 6 pounds total. Seeing some other guys posts on CKD, this seems VERY slow. My bf is around 18% @ 210 pounds. I broke down and bought some ketostix, and they always come back showing keytones are being produced. (I know they arent all knowing, but figured they'd be a decent indicator if I'm in keto)
My energy is fine after that first day, so I'm pretty sure im in ketosis, but dont get why I'm not dropping #'s faster.
Any and all suggestions welcome.
