23: Long-Term Stalls & Weight Gain Even On A Well-Formulated Low-Carb Diet | Dr. Stephen Phinney | Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts

Many people have been low carbing,  in one form or another, for years. For me it was with the realization I had become “obese” (as I approached my 60’s and gained another 30 lbs the first year I quit smoking) that prompted me to begin a low carb way of eating. That was 2 years ago. I have not been 100% compliant and have learned that straying is simply not worth it. The improvements in how I feel in a keto-adapted state (ketoner- my own low carb term for being ketone -adapted) make me wonder why I would ever want to be in any other state. Why would anyone want to be in any other metabolic state?

Let’s say we learn from experience. Yes If I eat too many carbs, I will fall out of keto-adaptation, and guess what, it does take me awhile to get back. Why would I want to do this. The truth is that I do not want to do this. It is  lack of information and understanding and finally after several experiments involving drifting hither and yon with foods, and continuing to search and learn you piece together answers. For me a big one was wheat/grains. After giving up wheat I finally managed to conquer “straying”. It simply is not worth giving up the ketoner zone.

Last night I listened to this podcast with Jimmy Moore and Stephen Phinney. A MUST listen for anyone who has a hard time getting to or staying in ketosis. This is on the top of  MUST Listens, especially for women but a lot of excellent information for anyone low carbing.

    Very interesting! Although I have recently backslided, my previous experience on low carb was different than most folks. As a small framed 5’2″, 45 year old woman, I discovered that a higher fat content with lower protein gave me the best results. I also found that when I threw cardio/weight training into the mix I was even able to reduce further — aka pant sizes not weight on the scale.

      Did you listen to the podcast? He does make the point that bodies change and I think this is so relative as we age-especially for women. I am just adjusting my protein now. I know I feel better around the 70 grams just find it hard to eat that much on a regular ongoing basis so I too reduce it and eat higher fat which is not working right now. I use inches and clothes too.
