The more obscure and weird benefits of Keto


(Minh Nguyen) #44

I’m 40yo, male.

Besides those that have been mentioned, here are my additions:

  1. Ugly butt pimples: completely gone. Whaaatt? I’ve had them since puberty. Surely ladies will appreciate this effect way more than myself.
  2. Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin, common on the arms, legs, sometimes face for the unfortunate): much less visible though noticeable, pores no longer bumpy. Had it since puberty too, used to hate KP but learned to accept it throughout adulthood. No cream or exfoliation prescriptions could do the job.

Love all the benefits keto brings, yet to see any negative effects past fat adaptation, which I think I’m there, relatively, after 4 months of constant adjustments. Though I think sub-branch ketovore offers others, e.g.: Testosterone level and T’s associated benefits. I can certainly feel my libido gone up after substantially cutting back plant based food in recent weeks, and I used to eat enormous amount of vegetables, nuts and seeds.

Similar here, I had a wart-like thing 3 mm diameter for the past two decades on the back of my left leg calf…after 2-1/2 years now, it just fell off in the shower. KCKO!!

I know, it is wild! so cool right? :slight_smile:
A healthy body doesn’t want crap on it growing HA too crazy :sunny: Glad you got rid of your thing too!

One more. Pre keto each morning in the shower, I would spin my head/neck around to loosen joints up. There was always popping/cracking of the joints from sleeping overnight. Now there is none, it’s just smooth stretching of the muscles. What up with that?

Crazy, right??? Same here. Every the crunching in my knees is diminishing… and that was supposedly calcium build up.

yea my ‘crunching is gone’ also like you and Robin.

I thought OLD age as I head there was my crunch issue mostly but I think it is oxalate crystals crunching maybe which I got rid of?? or the hormones sending more lube to the joints with healthier changes? NO IDEA on it but I sure love it.

I don’t full scope on science behind it but I think US humans on a real healthy eating plan shows massive improvements on which life should be ya know…IDK but I will take it, I love feeling so much better without issues that were ‘just there’ but ya know…

one thing is when something is OFF just a tad, I FEEL it instantly. In that it ain’t no ‘slow roll to something is going wrong’ cause when it changes from health to icky, I feel it in an instant, which to me is good cause I can deal fast with a health change. Many go ‘oh so long’ in bad shape and bad changes coming that they can’t even tell thru their body something is off til too late.

I like my body tells me fast now in life if I got issues.
Just chatting it out :slight_smile:

Exactly.

One more on my long list…
Many years prior to Keto, I had this persistent sore on the helix of my ear that would never seem to heal entirely. A couple of times a dermatologist injected steroids to it. It would heal for a short time, and then reoccur. Post Keto, it healed completely. It has not come back in over 2 years.

Yesterday I was sitting outside on a deck chair, at the end of a relaxing week at the beach, reading a book. I suddenly clapped my hand to my face; no reading glasses. I can’t believe I can still read normal sized text unassisted if the light is good. Pretty darn amazing!
