I am 3 weeks into low carbing, and it's all gone great, no carb flu, easy to follow. But the last couple of days I have really lost my appetite ( and I have a big appetite), and everything tastes really salty. I am having a bpc for breakfast as I don't want to eat, and am eating a toddler sized portion of meals. Is this what ketosis does for you? Will I lose weight if I am eating small amounts? ( have lost 15 lb in first 2 weeks, then 1. Lb last week).

I think losing your appetite is normal (I did) but try to eat something. My appetite came back but not to the same as it was pre-BC.

Someone wiser than me might be able to answer this better.

Well done on your weight-loss so far smile

Yep - it's one of the key benefits of this WOE! You won't be plagued with hunger pangs in between meals.

Just one thing to warn you about: in weeks 3, 4 and sometimes 5 it's not uncommon to see weight loss stop altogether. This is especially likely seeing as you have lost a great amount already - well done! flowers - but you will then settle down into a pattern of 1-2lbs per week, which is what you're looking for. Long term, sustainable weight loss is much better at this rate.
