I AM NOT A DOCTOR NOR A NUTRITIONIST. WHAT I AM SHARING ON THIS POST IS SIMPLY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
Am I thrilled? Pretty dang close. My scale this morning told me I now weigh in at 180 pounds. ONE-HUNDRED AND EIGHTY pounds – 81.6 kilograms. I began my renewed effort to lose weight about 4 months ago when my doctor called me borderline obese at 202 pounds. My BMI calculation was more blunt. That 28.2 calculation told me I was over the line meaning I had joined millions of other American men who sported a spare tire. My ultimate goal is to weigh in within six months at 165-170 pounds. That would put me at a BMI of roughly 24.
But even more significant is the lifestyle I have discovered through keto-genics. I initially became interested because of my arthritis pain and the conviction that diet plus lifestyle change could address this pain without the use of pharmaceuticals. This continues to be the reason for my adherence to keto, but the other benefits are amazing. I am no longer pre-diabetic, I no longer struggle with food addictions, my general health has vastly improved, my emotional health is stabilizing…..AND, did I mention I lost 22 pounds of fat? 😁
Here is one of Dr. Berry’s videos addressing diet and arthritis pain.
