Thank you for the responses. Much appreciated and, in particular, to ifod14. My physical therapist told me I need more electrolytes because I have been getting horrendous cramps in my left leg since I had my knee replaced, which was over five years ago. And I am not eating very much because I’m not a big eater. Still, I know I’m extremely insulin resistant as I just had another appointment with my diabetic nurse, who confirmed this.
She wants to put me on a stronger type of insulin. Still, I said no insulin is causing me massive weight gain, and yes, I am overweight by quite a large amount. I am probably 6 to 7 stones. So I bought some electrolyte powder that tastes beautiful. Still, I was told not to drink too much as it could cause even more problems.
I like the way of eating keto. The simple types of food please me the most. I do not drink alcohol, I do not drink milk, although occasionally I may have a splash in a cup of tea; I don’t eat breakfast, I do not eat dinner. I have my evening meal around 6 o’clock, which probably consists of around 800 to 1000 cal, I go to bed around 2.30 to 3 AM, and around midnight I will have some Greek yoghurt. Then, I will have coffee with butter and coconut oil during the day, and that is it.
