Default Keto Diet

I started in November because I was having major pains in my hands. I could not close them. At 39, this was unacceptable.

I decided to give this a shot. I'm down 20 pounds. All I flammation is gone and no pain! Between Christmas and New years I took a break mainly due to stress, but got back on it the 1st.

I'm comfortable at this weight, so anything else is bonus. I just feel better.

My diet is 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carb. No bread, no flour, no rice, no potatoes etc. Basically no foods that spike insulin.

I drink coffee with butter and coconut oil every morning. Sounds weird, but tastes good!

Congrats! I'm so glad it worked for you. I know a lot of people have had life-changing improvements in their health going keto. I tried it and tanked. Apparently it's not ideal for those of us with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome specifically because of the lower carb factor.

Good on ya for doing something to feel better and for YOU. We so often forget to do that during this journey.

I have chronic fatigue as well. If my sugar feel low,I eat natural peanut butter to help. I sleep better and have more energy, but it take 2 weeks to get there. 1st two weeks sucks! Sounds weird but powerade zero and pickle juice helps. Not mixed together!

Hardest part is when I get stressed I crave pizza. It is so weird, but I do. So managaing that is the hardest part.

I felt 90 years old physically. Auto immune, stress and inflammation issues will do that to you.
