    I tracked, counted and weighed and kept calories in check. At one time I had to lower calories to about 1200 a day. The wonder of low carb is that I was not hungry! I was always hungry any other "diet". I am now not on a "diet" but a way of eating that I will follow the rest of my life.

    This page has some good advice

    It's been a long time since I went low carb but I'm back at it again. I remember when I did this yrs ago, if I got stuck, I carb'd up for a day or 2. Then it all seemed to work. At least it did for me.

    I know this is an old thread, but I came across it and decided to communicate what I have learned.

    The key to losing weight on a low carb/ketogenic diet, I have found, is having 3 meals, no snacks. Every time you eat you release insulin, and in the presence of insulin, YOU CANNOT BURN FAT. If you are hungry between meals, you did not eat enough or have enough HEALTHY fat (Grass fed butter, avocados, grass fed beef, virgin olive oil, coconut oil, etc). Just add more fat to your meal. No need for tracking.

    The second important thing is to eat enough VEGGIES. Mostly huge salads. Green leafy vegetables. Veggie shakes. Moderate protein. You need raw food every day. Try to get your vitamins and minerals from FOOD. Stay away from processed foods if you can. Take apple cider vinegar with the mother with water before meals to help digestion.

    If you can master this you will see a change. If you get stuck or want to go to the next level, try Intermittent fasting. It's amazing for weight loss and overall health. Don't do TOO MUCH protein with your meals, but some at every meal (4-6 oz.) The reason for this is because protein can be converted to sugar by the liver. You can track at first if you want to see how your macros are, also if you are getting enough vitamins and minerals. If you still aren't getting all of these through food, even though you are eating huge salads and lightly sauteed or steamed veggies (with butter or coconut oil), it would be wise to supplement. When you track you will find you may be deficient in vitamin D, unless you eat liver often. This is one of the best sources. Also may be deficient in magnesium, potassium, zinc. Be careful of the supplements you buy, not all are absorbed by the body. You should research your supplements first.

    Some amount of exercise is necessary, but the diet is the main reason we lose weight. Walking at least 1/2 hour every day would be good. If you want to do more, HIIT is very effective.

    SO...TO RECAP: 3 meals, no snacking, after you are well adapted try to do IF, or OMAD (one meal a day).
    Track at first to see if you get enough nutrition, supplement if needed. At least some moderate exercise every day (or when you can, but at least 3 times per week).

    If after doing this you are still stuck, there are many sites and videos on youtube that give us clues on what to do.
