I've been reading throught the threads for the past few weeks and over and over again I have heard the phrase "I was knocked out of ketosis" followed by a tale of woe that invariably involved rapid weight gain and binge eating.
Surely one can come out of ketosis and not gain weight. Most weight loss programmes do not involve sending ones body into starvation mode (which is what ketosis is) and people still steadily lose weight.
I think living in fear of being "knocked out of ketosis" is not helpful and serves only to feed into the pathology of fat. It's like as thought the 'ketosis fairy' keeps the 'big fat blob monster' from the door. It doesn't. Ketosis is an aid to weight loss and an improtant facit of VLCDs but whether or not we gain weight is basically down to what we choose to put in our mouths and this will always be the case.
Lets all gain some perspective and free ourselves from buying into yet excuse for being larger than we would like to be.
