I thought I’d introduce myself. I’m Nicole, a 40 something year old SAHM, who cam to a ketogenic diet about a year and a half ago after discovering I was prediabetic, and failing miserably at moderation.
I actually gained weight into an overweight BMI while trying to just cut calories so I could lose a few to fix my BG. It didn’t work. My BG wasn’t budged. Keto seemed doable. I’d already given up gluten a few years back due to celiac disease so I knew I could drop a few more foods without a problem.
I was pleasantly surprised at how good I felt on keto. My energy rose, I lost 30-40 lbs, and my cognitive clarity was disturbingly better. BG fell too.
Now? I am mostly keto but slip into LCHF sometimes. My BG is mostly good but I have dawn phenomenon so my morning BG is usually my highest of the day. That’s one thing keto has been unable to fix for me.
Anyways, this looks like a great group and I’m glad to be here. Thanks for having me.
