  • My family has, for many years now, followed the nourishing traditions diet with a lean on the gaps diet, but recently i have had some symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, which has basically affected my right hand.

    I do not do any conventional medicines. With Gods help I have always used diet and herbal/natural/homeopathic remedies.

    Recently watching Dr. Berg and other research said that this condition can be cured with Keto diet and intermittent fasting.

    was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Keto diet and maybe some recipes for large family that won't break the budget...especially with the crazy inflation that is being done on purpose for our demise.

  • I've done keto, I dropped like half a stone in a week . It makes you stop craving sugar and makes you less hungry. I felt energised and healthy . You can get keto flu which is you body reacting to not having sugar , but stick it out 

    I found it hard to stick to long term as I do like potatoes and sandwiches. I now try and stick to a low carb diet

  • It was good for me when I did it a few years ago.  Be sure to supplement your electrolytes so you don't get the Keto flu!

  • My mom does keto after being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes and it seems to be working out pretty well for her.

    My experience with semi-Keto on a budget and cooking for my husband who is not Keto is this.

    I say semi-keto because hard core Keto downplays or ignores veggies, which are most of what I eat. Some even grind up pork rinds to use as flour -- ick.

    I prepare a meal with a protein like meat, poultry or fish cooked with seasoning and veggies. I prepare another veggie or two. I prepare either potatoes or rice which he loves and I do not eat. I may make him gravy which I also do not eat. No desserts for me except on Sunday when I bake something he likes.

    Intermitent fasting is often used along with Keto, that is, eating in a window of 6 or 8 or so hours. i.e. Last meal at 6 p.m. First meal at 10 a.m. or noon. Lots of water.

    Also nuts, seeds, healthy fats incorporated into salads.

  • I had high blood pressure during all of my pregnancies. It always went down after having the baby. After the last baby it never went down. My blood sugars were also out of whack and so were my horomones. I was an absolute mess. After 4 months on keto I was no longer pre- diabetic, I was off of blood pressure meds and my horomones had straightened out.

    There are many ways to "do" keto. I stayed under 25 g of carbs per day. I ate a ton a non-starchy veggies, meat with every meal and moderate fat. I think people get wrapped up in the mindset that keto has to be a high fat diet, but it doesn't have to be that high in fat. A lot of veggies is important especially for your gut!

    Carb Manager is a great app to help you track the amount of carbs you are taking in, and if you pay just a little bit for a subscription there are a lot of GREAT recipes that you can tap in to.

    Most of the time I kept it very simple. For breakfast I usually had a vegetable medley with brusselsprouts, red pepper, asaparagus and 2 pieces of chopped bacon. Also an egg. So tasty and satisfying! Of course change the veggies when you want to with that. Mushrooms go great with it as well!  For lunch I usually had some chicken over a bed of greens. I used a vinaigrette or ranch and put a lot of keto friendly toppings on there like different veggies, cheese, everything bagel seasoning (in moderation), etc.  For breakfast and and lunch I didn't have to plan much- just keep a bunch of vegetables around and some bacon or sausage. I'd cook the chicken or pork at the beginning of the week to eat in my salads.

    After being on keto for a few months, I no longer felt the need to eat breakfast so I eliminated that and fasted from after supper until noon the next day without problems.

    Supper took more planning. Chicken parmesan made with almond flour and no sugar added sauce over a bed of zucchinni noodles. Tacos with low carb tortillas, roast, breakfast bakes, crustless quiche, hamburgers without the bun. There are just so many things you can eat and none of it has to be complicated.

    As someone mentioned earlier- make sure to be taking electrolytes. Keto puts your body into a different metabolic state and you will shed water like crazy, and along with that water goes your electrolytes so you'll need to replenish daily or you will likely have some nasty effects like nausea, muscle weakness, extreme fatigue, bad breath, etc.

  • I have done a keto diet for about 3 years now and will probably stay with it for life.  I dropped annoying extra weight but more importantly no longer suffer from achy joints and stomach issues.  Dr Berg's videos are very helpful but I also like to scan the comments on the videos pertinent to my issues because you'll find other people have great tips and antidotes.  The more I've looked into keto the more I realize why it works.  Farming practices and government intervention unknown to most had changed the food throughout the decades.  Wheat is just one crop that was manipulated in the 1940's to become the addictive hazard that it is today.  I'd agree that the keto diet is the answer for a lot of illnesses.  While it is technically more expensive, you're eating less overall and best of all, not suffering from hunger.  In fact, Ember Days and Fridays and Lent were tough on me before.  Now, they are all really doable and fasting makes you feel so much better.  Not snacking all the time, or eating 3 or 4 times a day saves a lot of money and the amount of things you can get done during the hours or days you're not eating is a surprising bonus.

  • I like Dr Berg as well, but don't buy anything from his store as he is a scientologist and gives a percentage of his profits to his "church".
    I prefer Dr Darrin Schmidt -very smart guy ( he is a carnivore)

  • I've been doing Keto/carnivore for almost 2 years now and it has definitely been of benefit to me with regards to losing body fat, gaining more lean mass and I find most of the stomach problems I used to have are pretty much gone completely. Where I am poultry is really cheap as opposed to red meat so using more chicken is good. Mincemeat is also a cheap option that is quite easy to make or just serve with a meal to boost the calorie content.

  • I keep my daily fat intake below 20 grams of fat each day. Sometimes 10 grams or less each day. I eat high a carb and sugar diet, including white table sugar. My body fat % is single digit and I, literally, have more energy and I'm stronger than people (18-25 years old) half my age. I have no brain fog like I would get if I ate a high fat diet.

  • My family has, for many years now, followed the nourishing traditions diet with a lean on the gaps diet, but recently i have had some symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, which has basically affected my right hand.

    I do not do any conventional medicines. With Gods help I have always used diet and herbal/natural/homeopathic remedies.

    Recently watching Dr. Berg and other research said that this condition can be cured with Keto diet and intermittent fasting.

    was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Keto diet and maybe some recipes for large family that won't break the budget...especially with the crazy inflation that is being done on purpose for our demise.
    Maria, another diet often used for peripheral neuropathy is The Wahls Protocol. It was developed by a woman with MS, but has been useful for other autoimmune diseases. Much info free online, or your local library may have one of her books.
