I am pretty effing mad.
I went to see my doctor today to ask him to order me some labs. Basically I just want to ensure my glucose is good, my thyroid is good… I just want him to check everything out so I can ensure I’m not ice skating uphill. I have been on the keto diet for about a month. It’s pretty easy to follow and Ive seen some decent results. Weight not dropping as fast as hoped so I thought I’d go get some blood work done.
He gets to asking me what sort of things I eat. When I tell him eggs, cheese, turkey bacon, meat, almonds and fats like butter and coconut oils. He looked at me and said all of that is horrible for you. What diet are you following, when I mentioned Keto he said there is no research on that diet and that I should become a Vegan… he went into his whole pitch. I was effing astonished at the nerves on this little shit. I’m 39, he was probably 25. I felt like he was recruiting me to his cult.
Needless to say I Am not switching to Vegan! I just needed to vent, thank you all for this forum… it really does have a Ton of great info.
