Clean KETO

If you have been following the low-carb diet for some time, and have plateaued despite your attempts at finding the perfect combination of Intermittent Fasting, following your macros, fat fasting and exercise, you should look into the amount of sweeteners you are consuming. Even the "good" ones may be holding on to excess water, and keeping you from your goals! This is what happened to me, and it took me entirely too long to try and actually cut out sweeteners. Full post on plateaus here: Low Carb Diets and Plateaus

Original Post:My husband and I have recently (this past month or so) decided to go with ongoing low-carb/ketogenic eating. This entire back-and-forth, losing some, gaining it back, losing it again, is exhausting. This is a sustainable lifestyle - provided you take the proper precautions and know what you are doing. And we feel great on it!

While it is to be expected as we approach our goal shapes, our slowdown in progress has really come to a halt. In fact, for several day I have felt outright bloated and almost like I was gaining weight. So we have decided to cut out all artificial sweeteners this week as well. That means no diet soda, no sweetener in the coffee, no low-carb tortillas, no gum! And more I forgot, I'm sure.

I will try to update at the end of the week to see if this full-on clean keto helps our stall in weight loss.

Take care!
