Hello @sailor1750. I'd like to invite a few other members who have tried or are still on the keto diet (for varying diagnoses and reasons). @bigjeff, @klro0001, @avmcbellar, @iceblue, and @binblessed have all been on or are trying the keto diet for different reasons and may be able to share some of their experiences with you.
"Ketosis is a metabolic process that occurs when the body begins to burn fat for energy because it does not have enough carbohydrates to burn. During this process, the liver produces chemicals called ketones. The ketogenic, or keto, diet aims to induce ketosis in order to burn more fat. Proponents of the diet claim that it boosts weight loss and improves overall health."
As with any diet, speaking with your provider or pharmacist is best, especially when thinking about taking supplements that could possibly interact poorly with any medications that you may or may not be taking.
@sailor1750, have you been on the modified keto diet for the entire year? Has the change in diet been difficult?
