I started Keto on September 7th for my brain health for MS. (healthy high fat diets have proven to be good to neurological diseases) I have been asked several if it is helping, that’s not an easy question to answer.
I have not noticed a difference in my functioning since starting keto, my energy level is still low, my pain is still there (depends on what I have done during each day), my words still don’t work.
What I have noticed is that my hormones (due to PCOS) have leveled out (fingers crossed it helps my alopecia). I have lost 13.61 pounds and 13 total inches.
When I nerd out at my next doctor appointment I will have a bunch of blood work done to see if it has changed anything on that level. It’s hard, especially because I love sugar, but it’s manageable and since it’s a lifestyle change for me and not a diet I am allowing myself the occasional treat so that I can sustain this change long term.
