After one month of doing the Ketosis (eating less than 50 carbs per day) thing I have lost 10 lbs and today ran my first sub 12 min mile (11:47) as part of my 4x weekley 3-4 mile run. It has been slow getting to the point of burning fat instead of carbs but i think I am there. Lots of energy and feeling good. Cant wait to find out my A1c in a month or so. Jump on board, if i can do this anyone can!

I used a ketosis calculator and figured the the amount of carbs I could eat to stay in ketosis. I track my carbs on my fitness pal and there you have it. I am 6', 245 today. Eating less than 1750 cals per day and 35-45 carbs per day. As I mentioned I am running 3-4 miles 3-4 days per week too and am about to get back into half marathon training. My immediate goal is 225 lbs! I will keep you posted.

Good job Skip. I would be interested to hear how it effects your A1c.
Are you ussing a meter to check your ketone levels?
