Guy who lives next door to me has gone keto, an Irishman who was very overweight. He kept stopping me when he saw me and asking what sort of diet I was on…I said keto…he took it up and is 8 kilos down in his first fortnight.
My mother’s previous nursing home quite a few of the staff are now keto. All the diabetic staff are, as far as I know.
I don’t have a job where I see people daily and don’t have any disinterested chatter from people who aren’t really interested (if you know what I mean)…if people ask me they want to know for themselves.
I keep it very, very simple. I say I eat meat fish chicken with occasional veg and no fruit or cereal, no bread.
If I’m not hungry I don’t eat and I tell them if they want more information go to the 2 keto dudes and listen to the first 4 episodes.
I have no investment in anyone else doing keto unless they are interested for themselves and want to reverse diabetes or a metabolic disorder. I’m not into explaining usually to people who want to lose a small ammount of weight cause it isn’t what I know about. A lot of weight, yes, 'cause inevitably those people are insulin resistant and not even diagnosed and nothing else will work.
I did have one rather brilliant surgeon who was very interested and I made quite an effort to write him a lot of detail about how I had made it work for me.
I never say low carb. I say I eat protein and healthy fat.
