Keto Really Works!
I was skinny during my teens and 20’s, but after I had my only child in my 30’s I gained significant weight which I’ve tried to lose ever since then. I’m also a type 2 diabetic. I’m 65 years old now and during my life, I’ve tried everything to lose weight and the only things I’ve found that work for me are the following:
- Atkins. I did the Atkins diet when I was younger (20’s) and it was easy for me to lose 5-10 pounds doing that. But that was over 40 years ago and my body is different now.
- The Whole 30. I did the Whole30 plan in 2016 and lost 30 pounds that year eating whole and select foods. Cutting out alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, sugar, MSG, sulfites, and processed foods. This worked very well while I was doing this.
- Intermittent Fasting (IF). In 2017 I did IF and lost 20 pounds and managed to get off all my insulin injections after two months. Unfortunately, I was unable to keep fasting because I had to cook for others besides myself and it proved too hard for me to resist the foods I cooked for my family.
- Keto. This year, in 2019, I began the Metabolic Research Center (MRC) plan and it includes eating lower carb. I’ve now lost 25 pounds eating this way so far, with the support of the MRS staff, the eating plan, and their supplements. I fully believe that eating keto can help me to lose weight and also to reduce my insulin requirements. I am continuing this journey with the MRC plan and support.
