Hi, I’m Annemieke from the Netherlands, 37 years old. Living with Roland (we’re gonna marry in September) and beagle furbaby Pluto. Some hobbies are quilting and Japanese Oldtimer cars (Honda).
I started Keto in December 2018. I ate paleo before BUT never couldn’t get rid of the cravings. I was a slave of chocolate and sweets and after eating that crap I always felt guilty and sick. It wasn’t always so. Before they discovered my Crohns Disease and rheuma 10 years ago I never had those cravings. When they put me on prednisone everything changed. I became right away a slave of my own food and cravings. It felt not right and it made me depressed. And this way of living certainly doesn’t heal my Crohns and rheuma.
October and November 2018 I started reading. I discovered that a lot of people got rid of their cravings when they eat lower carbs. And that some people heal their CD and rheuma on a ketogenic lifestyle. And that are goals I want to reach for. At this moment I have to stop another medicine for it because of bone marrow suppression due to the medication. I was 6 times in hospital in 6 years for Crohns, rheuma and asthma to get prednisone IV. I don’t want those problems anymore. To reach that I’m not only eating Keto but do it OMAD and do some extended fasts too. Did 48 hour fast this week without problems and for healing I want some longer fasts. The doctor don’t knows what he must think about it, but I said that I will give it a chance.
So in short my goals: healing my CD, rheuma and Asthma. Get rid of those 25 kgs I gained the last few years. Get rid of my cravings.
One goal is reached now. After 4 days of Keto eating I never had cravings anymore. I lost in 28 days 4,5 kgs so I’m happy. I ordered something what measures my blood ketone so I can directly see what foods do in my blood. It will be delivered this evening.
