The initial weight loss is mostly water weight and glycogen stores being exhausted due to restricting carbohydrates. But eventually Ketosis will kick in and burn your reserves and you’ll slowly drop more weight every week.
I just joined here and this Able900 guy seems to be a Godsend; so check out what he’s saying. I know he knows what he’s talking about and doesn’t “sugar coat” the facts. I’ve been suffering from this condition on and off for 10 years to varying degrees and thought I could always let time heal myself if I didn’t aggravate the condition too much. Nope…it will ONLY get worse eventually.
This time it’s 100 percent effort and it’s the only way to go about it. I’m about 3 weeks in on my own effort and at times you have those moments of mental clarity and sense of well being that were all too familiar when you were younger.
Once you’ve had that glimpse of what things could be like, there’s no looking back. I’m glad I’ve come across these knowledgeable people and can’t wait to try some of their methods. You’re in the right place!
Best of luck to you!
