We hear it a lot, that like Diabetes (so we used to think) that keto just “manages” stuff and doesn’t actually FIX things, I disagee! 4 yrs keto, 1 year now playing with a lot of stuff to see what happens and what I can now get away with vs before. Long story short it started with Protein going way up for the last year which has been a huge sucess and the last 6mo the carbs are higher than they’ve been in a long time. My average the last 6 months is around 150-175g/day Which is still low carb but cleary not even close to keto anymore. Haven’t packed on any fat, haven’t had carb hangovers, have LOST more fat in the last 6mo than I have in the last 2 yrs or so, and my last A1C’s are 4.1 and 4.3! I’d say that means I’m FIXED! Not managed.
I almost even considered giving myself a GTT and seeing how long to return to baseline… but that seemed like I’d just be spitting in my bodies face. I’ll quit while I’m ahead!
