Hi Elt! I cannot answer most of your questions, but can tell you my experiences. I am on keto-diet since 2014 (it was more or less the slow way and it took some time to get rid of the feeling that I needed some carbs).Hey everyone,
Y'all will probably be of help in my current quest :
I've been experiencing the keto diet for some months now, the fatbomb custard recipe for some weeks and have read The Diet Research of the Sott.net Forum as well as Keto-Adapted, to learn more about it.
I'm naturally thin so the losing weight aspect doesn't really concern me, it would quite be the opposite.
What interest me most are its benefits (physical/mental/spiritual) and that it seems to be the "proper way" of eating.
But I still keep in mind that it is "for certain conditions".
At this point, I haven't exactly understood which are these "certain conditions" yet.
As I read from the C's that adapting the diet can also be very individual and that some people should add some root vegetables or berries, my questions are the following...
How knowing if I am among those who should add these latters or not ?
And what are these Certain Conditions referred to in the topic's title ?
Would you have, please, some links and infos redirecting to their knowledge ?
Thank you very much!
What made me feel more sure that this is the right way for me was when I was visiting a lady who does craniosacral healing. I have been there often and she has a good feeling of what my body needs. When I told her - just by the way - that I had changed my way of eating she tested it and said, "well that is good for you".
Due to my experience after a while your body tells you what he needs. For instance I very often want to eat lard and add a lot of them sometimes, I nearly have cancelled butter, because my body cannot use it (at least thats my feeling, he likes lard and in a way I fell like my stomach is absorbing it immediately and is happy !. But I also eat salad from time to time (very seldom), tomatoes and mostly raw vegetables. I dislike very much carrots and any kind of beets. I feel tired and discomfortable then. Also having eaten 15 small strawberries or blueberries (wild ones) I feel satisfied for a whole year.
Generally I feel lighter (in body as well as in mind) with that way of eating.
