    Am I doing something wrong?

    3rd week on diet. Lost 7 pounds in week one. Week 2 lost 2. This week up 3. This week I've been just under 20g carbs a day. Just under 140g protein and under 2000 calories. Walking 30 min a day. I'm 6ft 1in and 250lbs. Been testing using strips for ketones. Showing none. Do I need to be doing something else?

    weight loss is not linear, give it a week or two more

    You are probably losing about 1lb a week of actual fat. The rest is just noise cause by water weight changes. These are always greater at the start - and yes they can bounce back again.

    This effect is even more pronounced on low carb diets.
