Love this thread . I just posted this in my journal, about my mom who has just started Keto
I can say I felt a little pressure, like I wasn’t a “real” keto-er when I started because I wasn’t fasting and had no desire to, and it seemed like everybody here was. I came into keto and loved it because it meant I could get healthy and lose weight without starving myself in a CICO fashion, and I felt like the whole fasting thing was the antithesis to that idea. I now know that fasting is something that CAN happen naturally (I’m currently 20 hours into one just because I felt sick last night and haven’t felt hungry today). That thought was so foreign to me because I had rarely ever skipped a meal without feeling miserable, much less days at a time. My favorite advice here is to keto on. I think so many feel like they have to change something if they aren’t losing quickly.
