    Could I substitute fried ground sausage for the air-dried chorizo?

    I have been doing the Keto diet for two weeks, technically the challenge week 1 only but started on my own for the first week to ease into it. I have only lost a 1lb which I am surprised as I have been exercising too. However, I do see that my stomach is getting flatter. I hope next week to see a better drop in weigh as that helps to motivate me.

    I followed Keto for 6 weeks and gained 10 pounds. I had no sugar and kept carbs below 50/ day the whole time. I believe the total amount of Fat really does count. The increased fat content was the only difference from my regular diet.
