Has anyone with chronic pain/fibromyalgia/hypothyroidism tried it? I am also interested in CBD oil stuff living in Wisconsin. Thoughts?

I started Keto a bit over 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes. I also had/have Fibromyalgia, and Hashimoto;s disease. Three months after starting keto I was 50LBS lighter, diabetes free(taken off all meds) and free of Hashimoto's disease. today I am maintaining my reduced weight, still free of diabetes and Hashimoto's. I stuck to strict keto for the first year but now I have relaxed a bit. I eat 2x per day and do intermittent fasting and it works for me I love the keto diet so it was an easy way of life for me to stick to.

I’ve been a little concerned if I would be able to stay on strict Keto regimen long enough to achieve my weight loss goal. It has turned into more of a lifestyle change, and getting easier with each passing day.
The results that you have gotten from this diet sounds amazing!
I struggle with fibromyalgia and am thinking of going on the diet for fibromyalgia that eliminates sugar and dairy.
Do you have the web site that you used for the keto diet?
You might start with this Keto website, @dermnurse68.

@suelorie @tekkie3, what websites helped you?
It's much easier to follow a keto diet now, or even a paleo diet because many products are available on the shelf now that substitute for starches. I follow both because I have had spinal and SI joint fusions on top of fibromyalgia for 20 years and my exercise ability us limited. I lost about 10% of my weight, not enough, but at least I'm not gaining anymore. I make a lot of dishes with cabbage and mushrooms with hamburger or chicken for a low carb dish
I found so much conflicting information online when I started to research, I just asked my doctor what he recommended since he was already aware of all my health conditions. To start, he suggested limited my combined daily carb and sugar intake to 60 grams max, and that’s all I have done to date. I am now started to incorporate 10 min. of yoga as my daily exercise, hoping it will help improve mobility and decrease my joint pain enough where I can start walking short distances.
Surprisingly after the fact, I did find some good Keto basics on WebMD, which also advised asking your doctor what works best for you. Here’s the link: http://related.webmd.com/search.cfm-keto-diet-for-beginners
Hi @tekkie3, I see that your links do not work unless you cut and paste it into a web browser window. Here are the 2 sites that I see linked from the search results of WebMD.

Thank you John. I had not gotten a chance to check the link since I posted it. The topic that I got my information on was keto diet for beginners from web MD. If there’s any chance you could find that link and post it for me, I would appreciate it. I am having a few health issues at the moment.
Hi @tekkie3, Here is the one I think you were trying to post.
