Hello Lupo, and welcome🙂You’ve certainly found the right place, a great and supportive forum. My WOE is much closer to carnivore than keto, as I eat grassfed beef and lamb. Very recently I added grassfed organ meats to my health arsenal, and the taste of the beef liver (surprisingly sweet) is already growing on me. But I couldn’t eat it on its own, I pair it with 3 or 4 of my pasture eggs, as they mask that sweetness well. I’m not as strict as you as I drink a couple glasses of raw grassfed milk, enjoy eating KerryGold butter, and also a tiny amount of raw, wild honey in the mornings. It’s kind of a morning ritual, a nice way to wake up and I only have quarter of a teaspoon.
I don’t have alopecia, but I have the auto immune skin disease roseaca. As I finally gave up the antibiotics I were taking for it to heal my gut, I don’t look great at the moment. But I am determined to stay off the antibiotics and fix my gut, the skin is the barometer to one’s internal health. I have a lot of healing to do, and it takes time. I also have come to believe my lipoedema and lymphedema is an auto immune condition, which appears to be getting better. Like you I am looking for more energy, but I find walks are very good for this, and fresh air. Though my energy levels remain consistently low, my body is feeling infinitely better on my mostly carnivorous WOE: beef, lamb, raw milk, grassfed butter, and raw honey. When I was on a HC/LF WOE I was slim, but I’d snack constantly for energy, I’d have one blood sugar crash after another, dizzy spells, lightheadedness, massive brain fog, I’d take the steady if somewhat low energy I am experiencing on this WOE over that any day. But I believe, when the body has a lot of healing to do, that healing takes energy and while the body prioritises this, your energy levels may be lower than you wish. But, so long as you have the sense your body is healing, for instance one of my body’s healing signs is the dry skin on my hands is gone and they are smooth, another is better and deeper sleep, and I’ve had sleep problems all my life. I personally am not after weightloss, but the benefits and the healing, which requires patience, we can’t heal the damage done to our bodies over the night. If I were you though I’d keep a progress book, not just for noting weightloss, but for noting the benefits and signs, however small, of healing.
