We have been hearing a lot about how healthy a ketogenic diet is for EVERYONE– but is it really? I recently discovered that there are a lot of folks who, like myself, are carbohydrate intolerant and many have formed groups and help each other in many ways… thus this study and my discoveries, and yes, if you get down to those last few pounds and they just won’t go- before you visit Sono Bello to have that fat sucked out and get rid of it that way, do give this diet at least a 2-3 month trial period.
Nick is the awesome guy who has created the article above and even tells us about himself. He has 14 categories in his blog including Recipes and Nutrition, so you might enjoy checking them out.
During my study I learned people fall into one of three general categories– Those who can eat chemical-free the way Mother Nature intended and be just fine, those who, for a variety of reasons, need to eat a low carb (50-150) diet to be at their best, and those whose bodies don’t respond well to that so they need a VERY LOW CARB diet (0-50)
In the distant past I did well eating a low carb diet- then I stopped losing even though I still had fat- especially in my tummy and my doctor said I had about 15 more pounds to lose. I finally got some KetoStix and discovered that I can only tolerate 10-15 carbs a day– YIPES!!!
QUESTION– HOW CAN ANYONE LIVE ON THIS??OK- Scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast, bulletproof smoothie for lunch and a salad for dinner that includes meat, cheese and eggs– BUT– for how long- forever might not be a great idea– Then I discovered that there are not just a few that have my problem, but thousands- WOW!! Thankfully there are now tons of recipes that are yummy, made with ingredients we can have and will make us forget we are so limited! Also there are companies ready to assist those of us who, for whatever reason, can’t make our own special dishes at home! I am finding these advertised as Paleo- Keto- and Low Carb. We must still check ingredient labels but there are some great things out there!
THIS PAST WEEKI saw a video from a doctor who was discussing our THYROIDand what he had to say made a great deal of sense to me, so instead of asking my doctor for a refill, I got some Armour Thyroid. I will check with my doctor and have a blood test in a couple of months to see what he has to say, and by then I should know how I feel and what I think. It seems our thyroid has a lot to do with this weight problem that requires us to eat so very low carb and can possibly be corrected even though all doctors don’t believe the same way about it, but I think it’s worth a try.
This is going to take some time, and some of you may want to know what I’m doing and what is happening, so I will publish this now and update it as I work through it. MY GOAL is to get into ketosis, lose the excess tummy fat, then raise my daily carb allowance until I can eat the way I did in the distant past, which is the way I tell my readers who follow my EAT HEALTHY! page.
We loveDr. Mercolaand have become aware that he too, recommends this way of eating for those who need it and has quite a number of articles that is sure to amaze many. He also is giving us some yummy recipes– I want to try the garlic mushrooms! You may wish to visit his site and see everything he offers- here is themain recipe page.

My study of how to achieve and keep good health began when I was 18 and has been my lifelong passion. I have learned much over the years and when my T.O.P.S. group dissolved, I created Talk 'N Share. Life happened and I have not done anything with it until now. Since the beginning of this year I have learned many important things and wish to share with others, who like myself, may find it nearly impossible to lose those last few pounds and maintain the loss already achieved.
