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.

Awesome post! Things can be so difficult when it comes to keeping to a strict diet… I believe we can learn so very much about people when we hear what they love to eat, therefore, Atarah, I want to ask you if your favorite food ever changed over the years.
That’s an interesting question. As long as I can remember my favorite food has been ice cream. There was a while in my young adulthood that I didn’t eat any red meat so no dessert would have been ham. Being on keto for 5 weeks hasn’t changed my love of ice cream, just what that ice cream looks like. 🙂 It will be interesting to revisit that question after I’ve been on the keto lifestyle longer.
