Went back on ketogenic diet and doing well with that (weight loss, blood pressure improvement, great blood sugar control etc.).
I started walking about 11k steps per day on average and I currently weigh 368 lbs. It’s been 12 days and starting a couple days ago my right foot started to hurt. Yesterday morning I woke with plantar fasciitis in my arch of my right foot along with 2 or 3 adjacent tendons to the right of that. I read these are micro tears.
Any suggestions on what I should do? Do I have to not exercise at all and let it heal and scar, then do physical therapy (rolling golf ball under it on floor, picking up pen with toes etc)? I’ve had it before for many months (this was a few years back) and the golf ball and pen fixed it.
Perhaps I overdid it with my walking that many steps being this heavy and having had type 2 diabetes for a while. I am guessing those tendons are glycated and a bit brittle from the glucose in my blood sugar over the years.
