I’ve been keto 14 weeks. My main goal is to heal my brain. I am 49 and have memory issues, difficulty learning new things and concentrating. Low libido. Low motivation. Going through this 8 years or so. I’ve been to all kinds of “ologists” and done lots of testing (MRI, blood, neuropsychiatric). I am hypothyroid and hormones are getting back in whack. I am post menopausal.
My doctor suggested a keto diet might get my brain powered back up. I don’t count macros but I test my blood and know I am in ketosis. At first I was measuring as high as 4 or 6 but now am in the .5-2 range. I have not at any point experienced the feelings of amazingness that are supposed to come with this WOE. My main goal is not weight loss but I am happy to report the loss of 20+ pounds (although most of that was early and doesn’t seem to be enough).
