I was T2D so I am never going back. Keto for life.
Mrs. Hanson has been wonderful, but then I started on keto when she sent me to a doctor who is the husband of one of her friends. Susi is also eating a lot less carbs and is constantly looking for new low carb meals to try. She would be eating keto if she was not T1D, and eventually I hope to have consumed enough science that I can help her make a safe transition to keto.
In 16 weeks I have lost a zip-lock bag full of prescription medications and 59 pounds.
I never criticize what other people are eating, family, friends, coworkers. Nor do I ever ask that others accommodate my food choices. I will eat around what is offered, or just not eat. I have the best excuse … doctor’s orders, but I would do it anyway. I focus on the great things I can eat, a joyful celebration of fantastic foods, and just ignore the rest.
There are a great many foods that I can share with others, including my family. I love pizza night. We get thin crust pizzas to cook for the children and I will cook myself, and Mrs. Hanson, skillet pizzas without any crust at all. We can all enjoy the same experience together, the same core flavors and aromas, and all that is required is a bit of flexibility and understanding.
A lot of men can be rather lazy, domestically, and if you cook, he will eat. Cook things that you can eat together and if he wan’t something else, he can cook it for himself. This may sound harsh, but just as I do not expect other people to accommodate my food choices, I am not willing to expend significant effort to accommodate their choices. It is simply a matter of mutual respect. This is easy for me to say as Mrs. Hanson is just incredibly wonderful.
