  1. Hi Leanne,

    I desperately need your help. I started Keto about 6 weeks with the FBFP with Shawn Mynar and I have gone up two pants sizes and 20 lbs within that time frame. I’m so upset and not sure why this all happened on Keto. I don’t want to give up but maybe Keto is not good for me? I come from a restricted/binging background so i joined Keto to breakup with my food obsession. But now with this insane and QUICK weight gain, I’m beyond stressed and extremely unhappy. Any suggestions?

    • Hey! I’m not sure what all the FBFP program entails, but there are a number of reasons you could be gaining weight on keto. Have you watched the videos or listened to the podcast episodes in this post? There’s tons of insight here into why weight gain happens on keto, so I highly recommend giving them a watch/listen!
