Hello, I have been doing keto on and off for twenty years
Of course back in 2002 it was called DANDR (Atkins without the processed junk the company sells now). I lost over 110 pounds on a ketogenic diet. I was postmenopausal and also had (and continue to have) candida which means I need even more restrictions on what I can eat without triggering cravings/reactions. I know, deep down, this is the only way for me to eat. About 5 years ago my life fell apart in a six month period and I totally lost focus. I gained back about half of what I lost and it has taken me until now to get my head back in the game. I can tell you that ketogenic eating reduces my aches and pains from inflammation, reduces my sinus and allergy issues, and gets rid of my acid reflux. I feel 20 years younger when I stick to a low carb, non-processed diet. Hoping to commit to 30 totally clean days to kick things off. If I can get 30 days down, I know I will have the habit in place to go all the way to the goal.
