Hello good people,
I used to eat sort of keto-ish for a long time, because I could tell my body preferred it (although I hadn’t heard of keto at the time). For some years now, my diet has been terrible, and I’ve decided to eat better and go about it properly. I’ve been easing into keto woe for the last couple of weeks. I had a few days where I felt awful, and have been making sure to get enough salts and water. I’ve also had some days where I felt better than in a very long time. I already had a day where I just felt like walking outside all day, and it was absolutely wonderful!
I’ve lost a surprising amount of water, and definitely feel as I’m heading the right way with this, although I have no way of measuring anything since I’m on holiday.
I’ve been reading a lot on this forum and there is so much good information (thank you!). I see people have varying goals with this woe, and it’s not always clear to me which advice is best for what goal. I see people write about IF, fasting and lots of other things, and wonder whether all the various things people do would be good or bad for me personally. I am not diabetic or overweight. I am exercising, according to my energy levels. I am gradually increasing exercise as my body allows, and have increased my muscle mass. I have some health issues, and especially since I have ME/CFS I don’t want to do anything that will affect me/my energy levels too negatively. I am looking to help my body heal itself and get stronger.
Any advice/wisdom would be much appreciated.
