So, I have been researching and researching and RESEARCHING the ketogenic diet. For those who haven’t heard of it, its supporters claim that it can heal anything: cancer, fibro, RA, epilepsy. Actually, it came back into prominence with a doctor “prescribing” it for his patients with epilepsy. Honestly, there’s so much history about it, it would take me forever to write about it. Google it. 😉
I believe that I’m going to start doing it next week. I’m always hesitant about new plans. I don’t want to mess it up. I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and borrowing books from the library to get recipes. I’m still not ready. But, I will be.
I’m going to approach the whole thing kind of slowly. I’m going to try Atkins 40, then 20 and then full-keto. Don’t worry, I’m not going to be buying the junky-grocery store-hawked processed foods with the name on them.That’s not what Dr. Atkins was about. It’s more Paleo in nature. High fats, medium-low protein, and low carb. The idea is that your body will start using the fats for energy (like it’s supposed to do) instead of the sugars.
If you’re tired of having blood sugar crashes, like I am, then this may be something that you’ll want to look into. I’ll keep you updated!
