My name is Darlene but like to be called Dar. My girlfriends sister in law show us the Ketp Zone diet book and I ordered it and read it and gave to someone to read and now I can't remember who I gave it to so I have to go out and buy a new one and the cookbook. The book is from Don Colbert MD and I love what I read so like I said I need a new book.
I lost my husband 12 yrs ago and new I live in Tacoma, Wa in a one bedroom apt and my youngest daughter and her family moved in 7 years ago and I moved in 10 yrs and boy I wish I have my apt back and not so crowed. I'm a christian women and love going to church and helping out after Mass on Fridays and I go to Bible study twice a week. So that is a little bit of who I am.

I was keto for several years, and it helped a lot with my health. But I have a degenerative autoimmune failure that results in massive amounts of inflammation everywhere including my arteries. I've had to have seven repairs made in the last four years to keep my coronary arteries functional and I still have MS mobility issues and angina. This means that my activity level has diminished substantially. Nobody in my household is keto, and asking them to prepare special meals just on my account -- even just bare beef and a salad -- got eye-rolls and snarky remarks, so I just.... quit. I went back to eating what everyone else in the house was eating and I stopped being careful at all. Needless to say, my body freaked out. Weight has been creeping up steadily again to the tune of 30 lbs over the past three months. Blood sugar is also sucky, despite metformin. I finally decided that I couldn't just leave my health in the hands of eye-rollers and gripers -- I had to go back to doing what I need to to take care of myself. So I'm moving in December, and going back on my keto diet as of yesterday.

It's like I'm allergic to carbs as well. This past week I had ordered a Keto coffee at my local coffee shop, they always do great at making them for me. The girl that made my coffee was new, I'd never seen her before. I trusted that she got my order correct, well needless to say there was hidden sugar, I believe she used real syrup instead of the SF with stevia that they usually use. I was so sick, I mean Keto flu sick. I am fat adapted being on Keto for 3 months now, but I was beyond sick. I was at work leaning against the wall with waves of nausea and body aches. I felt like my head was going to explode. I tested my Ketones and I was almost out of Ketosis, and I've been in strong ketosis every day. It's bad. I decided then that I don't want any part of carb up days or anything like that. I am Keto for life!!!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

I was struggling with my weight as it was going up and up. Tried many different diets. When I wouldn't see results I would quit. I kept going to the dr with issues and told it was in my head.Turns out I as hypothyroid for about 10 years before being diagnosed. I felt much better but the weight still continued to climb. I as still waking up with a morning headache and groggy.I then had two TIAs a couple days apart (very scary). I was desperate.I was diagnosed with complex sleep apnea. My son suggested Keto and the first time in my life I had energy, no more sinus headaches, woohoo!!! It is like I am allergic to carbs.

I started the "Ideal Protein" diet, packages of protein powder stuff from my chiropractor. So for weight loss.

As a side effect my blood sugar was under control with no diabetes medication. I forgot to take my pills for two days and was very surprised that it was OK without meds, but with this diet.

So I looked into the exact nutrition of the Ideal Protein diet, and upon more and more investigation it lead to Keto.

I was struggling with a lot of health issues. My weight was creeping back up, and I felt awful. I stumbled across a YouTube video about the Ketogenic lifestyle, and I knew it was doable. I was ready for a change. I woke up the next morning deciding to give it a go, and now 2 weeks later I am feeling amazing. I love the food, and am down 13.8 pounds :)
