Three weeks ago I decided to go on the Keto diet. In the first two weeks I went from 322 pounds to 315. Things were looking good, I was feeling great, my energy levels were up and I was never hungry. Now I'm in my third week and I'm stuck at 315 which is really frustrating. I didn't lose a single pound the entire week. I weighted myself yesterday and the scale showed 316, so I actually gained a pound.
I regularly test myself with the Keto stix and they consistently turn dark purple, which means I'm in great Ketosis between 80-160.
So the question is, what am I doing wrong and why aren't the pounds falling off?
Is it because I'm not consuming enough fat?
My average day on the diet looks like this.
Breakfast- 3 scrambled eggs with sausage (or two cans of tuna in oil with three tea spoons of mayo) and half of avocado
Lunch - I usually order Gyro with lettuce, onions, and half a tomato from a Turkish restaurant or Grilled chicken and steak with onions and peppers from a Mexican takeout.
Snack - few slices of cheddar cheese
Dinner - 12oz of grilled chicken or steak with mustard and broccoli or cucumber
I drink plenty of water and do cardio (slow walking uphill for about 45 mins) about 2-3 times a week.
Your help is really appreciated.
