Julie and I are going to try the keto lifestyle.
After a visit by John and Lenore while I was in the hospital (ileostomy take-down), they both looked fantastic! Each had lost about 20 pounds (over 2 to 2 1⁄2 months), fewer aches and pains (comes with getting old), and John was able to drop one of his diabetic meds and is working on the other one. They both are feeling great and sleeping better.
After many questions to them and much discussion between Julie and I, we are also going to try the keto lifestyle. Though we may begin eating accordingly beforehand, we are officially starting on October 21.
