Hello there smart people.
So I started Keto in May after reading the Obesity Code. I got really excited and started IF right away. I loved it and felt great up until a month ago. All of the sudden I was having horrible pains in my right side. It felt as if I was passing something or possible Hernia.
I went and saw my naturopath that ordered an ultrasound. He said “you have an unhappy Liver from losing weight too fast” I had only lost 13 pounds at that point (2 months).
The blood tests and ultrasound confirmed a fatty liver. I stopped IF but kept eating Keto. I have tested myself and fluctuate between .3 and 1.2 Ketones. I feel Fat adapted as I am only eating 2 times a day at the moment.
I’ve lost a total of 18 pounds since May 21, The pain is still there. If I fast the pain gets worse.
Oh and I had my Gallbladder removed in 2007, I wish I had not.
Has anyone else experienced this? I have read a few studies where the Keto diet can heal a fatty liver. But the main stream docs are scaring me off of it.
Thanks for being there.
