How long are you on LCHF diet ? This is to get some inspiration for me to stay on the course.
Just under 5 years so far.. mainly keto with some intermittent and longer term fasting now closer to carnivore.
Coming up on three years of dietary ketosis. Started out paleo with dairy. Been hyper-carnivore for over a year. Now 100% carnivore with zero non-animal intake. Not even coffee.
Since May 2017
Eight and a half years. I am maintaining my blood sugar levels, and still med free.
I envisage doing this for the rest of my life.
Low carb/ketogenic for seven years in November, with no diabetic meds (metformin) for last 3 years. Glucose has been mainly stable - HbA1c range between low pre-diabetic to high end of normal for most of that time, with a few slightly higher levels due to non-dietary issues.
And like @Lucylocket, for me it's been and will remain a lifetime commitment. One of the best and easiest things I've ever done!
Since January 2017. Semi carnivore now.
Newbie here 9 months and i love it, wish i had started sooner
no more bloating, no more eating for the sake of it, no more processed food with an ingredients list as long as your arm, no more sugar cravings the list goes on
i was devastated at diagnosis but it’s probably the best thing that could’ve have happened to me, gives you the wake up call that your health is the most important thing in the world and all it takes is a few tweaks and determination
Around a year, best thing I ever did.
Five and a half years. On Metformin until a year ago, now diet and exercise only. Stable weight (hallelujah!), stable blood glucose in 30's. Easily able to maintain diet.
Started lowering my carbs deliberately in the mid 80s, but went properly Low Carb around 1990 (when I started catering for myself)
Didn’t consciously increase the fat, but looking back, that inevitably happened.
During the intervening 30 yrs I have played with all sorts of different ways of eating, from 80% raw, to low GI/GL, to keto, to carnivore, to green smoothies every day, to gluten free/keto/carni, with varying (Low) carb intake.
However, I have very rarely eaten more than 50g carbs a day in that time, simply because my body handles carbs so badly that they make me feel ill.
Highs and some lows.... but basically sound.
In a couple of weeks it'll be 7 years. Only one HbA1c is the diabetic range, ever.
Almost three years in a few weeks time. No meds, now normal hbac1, maintained weight loss and loving this way of eating no plans to change this as it suits me so well.
Just over seven years. Before that I was eating healthy carbs that were making me so ill!
However, due to some recent bad news, I came out of Keto and my health suffered.
I'm now back on track!
If I would have had the option a decade before diagnosis. It would be coming up to twenty years.
With my RH, I would be a fool not to eat Keto.
6 months so far, but for life looking forwards!
Five years and a bit -- enjoying this way of eating a lot.
Normal HbA1cs ever since (between 29 and 36 mmol). All other blood markers much better and in the normal range too as is blood pressure. On no medication for the last four years.
Over four years now, I can’t imagine going back to a high carb diet, too much stodge. Try to keep around 20-25 grams a day, max, on a good day perhaps as low as 10.
