I want to thank everyone who reached out to me yesterday after I posted my Fit (Fat) for Life blog. Suggestions for me to try out a new way of eating, one that will suit my lifestyle, were Paleo and Keto.
I have decided to try out the Keto, both are very similar in foods but I do like the fact that you concentrate on fat rather than low fat. Low fat hasn’t worked for me and it is obvious by the numbers on my scale.
I have done much research in the last two days on this and after watching Dr. Berg’s vlogs on the Keto Diet, I was amazed at what I learned.
You start out by finding out what your body type is. Mine was broken down into two, Adrenal and Thyroid. As you can see from my pictures I posted yesterday, my arms have gotten so big, I’m embarrassed to where sleeveless shirts and normally go for 3/4 sleeves whenever I shop for tops. Who knew this was caused from my adrenal malfunction. Stress is another factor that will cause your adrenals to go haywire. And I do have Hashimoto’s disease so when I saw the pictures of the 4 different body types, I was amazed at how quick I could pick mine out. The symptoms, trying to lose weight and only losing a certain amount before gaining it all back, exercising and seeing little results, restless sleep, fatigue, hair loss, acne (I started getting adult acne and went to a dermatologist). Of all the doctors I have been seeing, not one pointed to my adrenal glands and yet all my symptoms point to this.

If you can’t get it through the link I posted, google Youtube and look for “What are the 4 body types” Dr. Berg. This doctor is a wealth of information and if you are having the same problem I’m having, it may be helpful to you as it was for me.
Since yesterday I have ordered the Keto coffee with the Keto creamer, and two cookbooks. I also ordered Dr. Berg’s supplements for Adrenal Health, you don’t have to do this but I felt I would give it a try. This morning I am about to bake a Keto banana Walnut Bread, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I’m excited to try this new way of eating and I’m hoping once my supplements get here, I will be on my way to a renewed, healthy body. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. This morning I weighed in again at 189, I lost 2 lbs since yesterday but then again, it’s been a yoyo, let’s see what happens on Keto!
Now I need to go make my Kale Shake!
