…well, almost 70 lbs. I’m 179 lbs today. Be nice to me, don’t do the math! : ) I got down to a 66 lb loss over a month ago… maybe 2 months ago and it just stalled and kept going up and down. I finally figured it was time to change the diet around so a little over a week ago I started the keto diet. Wow, what a change. I have a 3 egg omelet in the morning with LOTS of cheese in it and am full until dinnertime. I do have coffee and tea with heavy cream throughout the day so it does sustain me. What a change in everything… I don’t need a nap everyday as I used to. I attribute it to the diet. I supplement with MCT oil and what a difference it has made in not only me but my husband’s energy level.
Is the keto diet healthy? I don’t believe so, long term. But, I don’t see anything wrong with anyone using it to lose some weight. It is better to be a little void nutritionally or calories wise than to have 100 lbs or so lugging around destroying your organs, blood pressure, heart and your life. I don’t know if I will stay on keto the rest of the way down (35 or so more lbs), but am happy to see the scale moving again. I do use keto urine strips and like what I see, it’s motivating for me. I was able to easily ride my bike 13 miles the other day, 4 miles with the girls. : )
Here are some resources:
I am currently reading this book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079RLTKS9/ref=oh_aui_d_detailpage_o01_?ie=UTF8&psc=1
In the book she describes how they put kids into ketosis when they are NOT responding to anti-seizure drugs at all. They put the Navy Seals on a keto diet so that during training underwater they don’t have a seizure.
She also has some many other youtube videos: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dr+annette+bosworth+keto+diet- I really like her personality but moreso her knowledge.
I WILL add more to this later in hopes that it will help a few others… I need to finish lunch for my kiddos.
