Huge symptoms improvements on Keto diet

Recommended Posts

To make it short:

1. Did Keto during 25 days. Symptoms went down to a point I could barely notice them.

2. My doctor said to stop it because I was having too much animal protein

3. I went back to eating high carb, and symptoms came back to baseline

-> Why am I not staying on Keto?

Too many side effects, and dangerous on the long run

-> Notes

- Most people who thing are doing Keto are not in real ketosis. It takes huge commitment to do it. I was using a blood ketone tester and I was getting about 1.5 reading in the mornings

- This is a complex diet, you gotta study it well before starting

-> Takeways

Keto puts the body in a metabolic state similar to fasting. It increases BDNF and downregulates mTOR, stimulating autophagy. It also modulates Glutamate / GABA ratios.

Next step is to try Exogenous Ketones, to see if I can get the same benefits without the drawbacks.

I hope this helps whoever is desperate for a reduction in symtoms.

This podcast explains all about Keto and it does say that people either gain very little benefit from Exogenous Ketones, or none at all. Have you tried them? I am seriously contemplating the diet, but a pill or liquid in lieu of the diet would be so much easier.
