I low carbed for 2 years. I lost about 8 pounds and put them back on. I fought hunger the whole time. I decided to do some “house cleaning”. After some experimenting I discovered that coffee and antihistamines increase my hunger substantially. I stepped off of low carb to focus on getting off the caffeine, artificial sweetners, dairy (a potential problem) and Claritin.
I have Hashi’s and I also had my “gray fillings” removed. I have bursitis, and it has substantially subsided without the coffee. I am through my “house cleaning” (oi caffeine withdrawal) and am debating how to begin again. I’m a 40 something female with about 20 pounds to loose and some muscle to gain. The previous weight I did lose I attribute to IF.
Should I try Keto again or focus on fasting? I’m confused about the safety of fasting with Hashi’s. I’ve read lots of threads, but nothing really seems clear.
