Kelly- watch out for ketosis (metabolism switch to fat burning). That’s what happened to me on the FT diet, and it has been a huge struggle trying to get out of it. After the first month on yhe diet I had lost 30 lbs. and 3 bra sizes (and I didn’t need to lose anything in the first place). I didn’t know about ketosis, but have been seeing a nutritionist to try and get out of it. For many people, over 60 carbs is not ketosis, but it appears I should be closer to 100 (which is difficult on the FT)
I keep hovering on the verge of ketosis, going in & out of it at around 75-80 carbs a day. Its frustrating, as the FT worked for my LPR symptoms
