Hey all new to the forums this week I found Keto at the beginning of July and have been listening to the 2KD pod casts religiously (1-2 a day) working my way through all the early episodes. Unfortunately everything points to their FB page for the first 10 months and that’s why it took me so long to find the forums.
There’s been a lot of information about how keto helps with depression and I haven’t been diagnosed but I’ve been having a general feeling building up that life has lost it’s sparkle for the last decade or so. Lack of desire to visit friends, travel, find a partner. It doesn’t seem to have changed much but I’m only 7 weeks in or so. Last weekend I slipped up while drinking and grabbed a bunch of potato chips my old goto and the next day I felt so emotionally terrible that I couldn’t even get out of bed. Has this happened to anyone else? I know that the drinking isn’t great and I’m trying to cut it out along with the carbs but it’s tough. Fortunately I find going back to keto easy but it does take 3-5 days after my slips to get the weight moving in the right direction again. I guess I should set smaller goals like making it 1 more day without another slip up.
Thanks for listening
TLDR: Slipped up ate a bunch of carbs and had a huge emotional downward mood swing. Has this happened to anyone else?
