I am approaching day 60 of my ketosis eating plan. I must say that as the days go on my appetite has almost diminished and it becomes much easier to fight cravings.

I totally freaked out and had a mini breakdown (15 minutes or so). I came up with the grand idea to change my diet completely and try to manage my symptoms with my meals. A part of diabetes is low-carb and the gluten-free helps with thyroid. In the last 45 days I have been both and my symptoms have almost all went away. I say almost because my blood sugar occasionally drops. I noticed an immediate change within the first 3 days. I also lost a few lbs (30+ not to brag or anything). That’s the reason I have been inactive from my site. But, in those past few weeks I have been researching...
