Mistakes You Aim Not to Repeat in Your Dieting Methodology
Hello All, to kick off the group, I’d like to ask those who wish to share what you learned from your previous tries at dieting? I’ll start off. I tried keto diet last year (2018) and did it for 9 months. I would do very low carbs for 5 days a week and in the weekends I would cheat and eat whatever. On top of that I ate large amounts of swerve (processed sugar alcohol) which is supposed to be low carb and taste like sugar. At the end of the year I experienced a lot of pain and inflammation and had to go to rheumatologist and nutritionist who ran a battery of tests. Turned out I had very low vitamin d levels. My coach broke it down form me and told me that high protein = high uric acid, which forces the body to draw on calcium levels to regulate the blood ph which leads to vitamin depletion. On top of that sugar alcohols aren’t that great for you either. Anyways, I’m sure I was not supposed to be doing keto for 5 days a week and eating whatever I wanted for 2 days. No more keto no more artificial sugar or sugar alcohol this year. I’m doing IF, no sugar, no gluten. Care to share? Please do!
