    Hi guys! I'm currently on Day 2 of tracking my carb intake and I was wondering if anyone wanted to share their specific success stories on Keto or LCHF diets? I'm trying to get myself motivated!

    If anyone tries to tell you they are fad diets and there is no research to say they are safe, or even true - you could refer them to the book 'New Diet Revolution' by a certain Dr Atkins. Despite all the claims, the low carb way of eating Dr A devised worked for thousands of people, including diabetics, and if there isn't evidence from his clinics, there ought to have been - there should have been if people were not so dead set against the idea that carbs might not be a healthy choice.

    I went from 101 hba1c at diagnosis to 39 this last test 7 months in.

    All low carb and all based on information from here.

    That’s amazing, well done! I’ve made so many changes based on everything I’ve read here that I almost can’t wait for my next blood test.
