Will going KETO help break the weight loss plateau?

Will going KETO help break the weight loss plateau?

As you may know, I’m following a low carbohydrate diet as part of my quest to keep Diabetes Type 2 in remission, but I’ve hit a set point!

So far following a low carb diet has been working and I’ve managed to keep my sugar levels under control. However, although initially I lost 2 stone and have managed to keep this off, which is great,  I still need to lose at least another stone and unfortunately, I’ve hit a plateau – I lose a couple of pound and then put them back on.

The Brilliance Within 90 Day Habit Changing Challenge has helped me start to develop a new exercise habit, which if I say so myself has been working brilliantly, to keep me motivated to exercise every day. I’m 35 days into the challenge and am starting to enjoy exercise for the first time!

However, although I’ve started exercising, in addition to following the low carb diet, I’ve still not managed to break my weightloss barrier. I suspect this is something to do with my ‘set point’ i.e. where I see my limitations subconsciously, so I’ve been on the look out for some new recipe inspiration, to give me a boost.

As always, the Law of Attraction has come to my rescue. I received a lovely email from fitnesscrest tonight, with a link to some great new recipes for me to try. Hopefully, these new recipes will tickle my tastebuds and help me leap off my plateau, down to the next weight loss level!

    My husband was borderline diabetic for a long time. The last lab work done before April pushed him over by 0.1 to make him officially diabetic. Ever since that time, he determined to have green smoothie as his regular diet. For brunch (he eats two meals a day), he eats mushrooms, tomatoes, apples, pears, avocado, and two eggs, and a cup of green smoothie. For dinner, he eats peas, mushrooms, salmon (5 days a week), and the green drink. He doesn’t have any bread. He likes cheese but cut back to the minimum. Once a week he eats meat. He exercise 4 days a weeks. He must have lost 20 lbs or more the last 6 months. The last 3 weeks, his blood sugar was below 100. He is very encouraged to stay on his diet. He even cut drinking wine. He does drink rum or vodka mixed drink.

    Best wishes for your diet and have the blood sugar under control!!

      Wow he really is sticking to his new regime isn’t he. I’ve found that I can eat a variety of foods by replacing just a few ingredients. There are some really nice low carb alternative recipes under the health page on my blog. I did a lot of research as I’m sure your husband has too. I’ve managed to make it a change of lifestyle without feeling deprived. But, to lose this extra stone now, I will have to be a bit stricter for a while I think. Well done to your hubby!! x

        He is rewarded by feeling energetic, and being able to wear some of his nice old clothes! xo
