    Not entirely sure, but I would imagine the weight you lose going into ketosis is mainly water and glycogen. I would think it varies in accordance to your starting size too.

    None of it, I'd think it was impossible to lose 11lb of fat in three days. It's all of your glycogen supplies, I think week two is when the fat burning really begins! When you're in harcore ketosis. lol

    I'd still be made up with seeing an 11lb loss in three days, regardless of what it was. It's still a loss... I'm a self confessed weigh-a-holic, so I feel your pain. lol

    I thought I read somewhere that you lose around 5lbs of water in the first week but, as Spooky said, some will lose more and some less
    I'd still be over the moon with 11lbs, water or not! lol :)

    I am thinking the first 5 pounds is water and glycogen because that's how much some people gain when they get back on food. The rest should be fat if that makes any sense.
