One thing to remember, when on embarking on a keto diet, is to study what you are about to battle. Partaking on this sort of diet has some psychological and biological--bodily feedback, you must learn, so you do not mistake these for "other" symptoms. Eliminating carbohydrates (when the previous dietary trend was flourishing with carbohydrates), will "eventually" (keeping things equal) force the body to use other macros for its energy source, which in turn reveals some side effects. These eventually (with most) will go a way slowly, but know these, as these can be different from person to person, such as: Head aches (the brain uses carbs as its "referred" source), low energy, shakes, and others. In addition, its important the fats and proteins are up to snuff.

How are you designing this?

Where are you getting your Keto Diet Plan from (what source material)?

What are the calories in days 1, 2-4, 5-12? The percentage doesnt narrow it down, unless you state the caloric content. What do you do for work, off hand if you dont mind me asking? I have some great info on Lyle Mcdonald's Keto plan and depletion workout protocols if you are interested.

While Keto diets and its variants are effective for tissue loss, I am just not sold on it..for you (for what this is worth). Here's why I am troubled with it:

1. I do not know your personal goals.

2. I do not know how much fat tissue you want to lose.

3. If you have a large some of fat tissue to lose, and just started dieting to lose this tissue, a more traditional diet program (basically a mere caloric deficit) would be effective at this stage of your weight loss, and would lesson the negative feedback that keto diets (depletion diets) can bring some.

Can you be more forth coming in your personal goals, and personal particulars?

Wish you the best, young man.


Vitality!
