Ratios for therapeutic and a thin person/Keto

edited January 2019 in Ask An Expert

Thank you for the opportunity to ask a question. I am very thin already, 5' 8", 125 pounds. I have started Keto 5 days ago due to a friend who has had the same neurological condition as I have had for over 10 years. He said this diet wiped out all of his symptoms after 8 weeks. I would be grateful if that happened for me. I have started with the cronometer therapeutic ratios and I feel so hungry. I am following Dr. Mercola. With the ratios, I end up with a very light dinner. It is at 20 g carbs, 34 g protein and the rest fat. I meet the targets but am calorie deficient by 500-600 calories. I end up so hungry in the morning. Bulk of food intake spread between morning an lunch, so I am working on the balance more. I think I need to increase the carbs a bit and more fat so I don't lose weight. Would love feedback and how do you get more calories too and maintain the targets? Thank you!
