So not so long ago, I decided that I wanted to change my eating habits, and have a healthier diet. I wanted to cut my sugar and carb cravings, get in shape and lose a few pounds in the process. I had heard a lot about the Ketogenic diet, and decided to learn more. What I found was very interesting, and I felt like it was doable! If you want to learn more, this video from Dr. Berg is a great place to start.
I also wanted to explore its pain reduction benefits, to know whether it works. I had previously read a post where a patient did a 2-week keto diet, and later on, her arthritis pain was gone. She spoke of how she has always had extreme joint pain, and the pain medications had not been effective. This had caused her to take time off from work to deal with the pain.
After the keto plan meal, she has had a significant pain reduction. She no longer took the pain medication as there was no more pain. The keto diet boosted her energy levels, which made her do activities she couldn’t before. But for complete healing, she listed that she would visit blood platelet specialists for regenerative treatments which are known to be effective for healing osteoarthritis. She concluded by declaring her love for keto meal plans, which are highly adjustable.
So what I want to do here in my blog is just kind of keep track of how things are going, how I am feeling, the recipes I try, etc.. I probably could have started this about 3 weeks ago, since that is how long I have been doing Keto now…but better late than never, right!? 🙂 Here goes! Keep a lookout for more posts coming soon!
Great Keto resources that I have found very helpful:
