@nbbaby I've done keto and it gets rid of water your body's holding on to in the first couple of weeks.
I realised I was making common mistakes of eating too much fat. You don't need to have massive amounts, it just needs to be higher than the protein. Keeping the carbs so low was just too hard for me but it was great in me finding out what had been making me so bloated and my crashing blood sugars over the past 10 years or more.
I replaced pasta with steamed cabbage, leafy greens are so low carb you can eat loads. The best advice i've seen was keep it simple protein the size of your fist, vegetables and a fat(if the protein is a fatty cut then you already have the fat).
It's great to not see butter and olive oil as an enermy. All good fats, avocado, olive oil and butter. I'm not so keen on coconut oil. But coconut cream cheese pancakes are delicious, they can be made with Almond flour if you're not keen of coconut.
I now make Cloud bread for my sandwiches.
I'm rarely bloated now days.
I like watching Keto Connect on YouTube, they're really helpful.
I hope you feel better soon and get some help. I can't even imagine how what's happening is making you real feel with everything happening in your life right now. I hope your son isn't in too much pain. ☹️
Sorry if something else has happened and I've missed your post.
