Trying something new
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
As noted in my most recent blog - I have spent over 1 year struggling with health. It has prevented me from even doing simple things like walking or bending over to sort wash. I have put on weight and now I can even feel my stomach sagging! I can't stand it. I am now able to do just a few minutes of walking and a little housework but I struggled with what kind of diet to try. My PT talked to me about the ketogenic diet. Carbs have always been my challenge and after reading the background on this diet I could see how it could be beneficial. Thing is I know my husband would like the food but also add carbs and I am quite frankly afraid that would kill him! I do not have time to make two different meals. So I am going to try and increase fat and protein quite a bit and decrease carbs a lot. The diet suggested 20 grams a day - Sparks says 135 - 252 - so I am thinking like maybe 50. Has anyone tried this? Does it work. I would not eat as much fat as the ketogenic diet allows in order to equal it out. Let me know. Thanks so much.
