what to eat after gastroenteritis (noro virus- winter vomiting bug)- I was ill for 3 days. I felt like having carbs, porridge and honey, bananas, toast- but just didnt eat at all and then had chicken soup and that worked a treat, plus stayed off the soft dairy (milk cream etc) and used coconut milk etc instead.
I felt that my sense of smell changed, why was that? some of the meats I was eating started to smell a little too much like the animals they came from. Pork chops smelt like barn yards. Pork lard ended up in the bin. BUT some types of meat were fine, and coconut oil helped-, so my smell receptors changed.
why were my trousers still tight round the waist after 8 weeks? lots of reading blogs told me that the tummy is the first place fat goes on and the last place it comes off. I have got chicken legs now (who cares at 61) and my arms and face are much thinner, so I know keto is working, but I just have to be patient.
the scale didnt drop for months, i was so sad- but my body composition changed and I feel great, so that worth it. Lots of family members had late onset diabetes, that will never happen to me ( I trust) as I am in constant ketosis. i used a tape measure rather than weighing scales as they can be evil deceivers!!
these are the questions I asked myself. Mark from london uk.
