The Keto, Ketovore, and Carnivore diets are not just for weight loss. It will help heal your body. The weight loss is a nice side effect, but should not be your primary reason. How do I know it heals your body? Let’s discuss, shall we?
I started Keto as a desperate action because I woke up and could barely move my legs. I had heard about Keto from a friend, and something told me to give it a try. My poor husband, who was starting to prepare Christmas dinner with all the traditional sides. He had to suddenly make extra dishes for me. He did great and I will always appreciate that he has supported me from the beginning.
As I got further into Keto, I started noticing that I was losing some of my bloat, and some weight. Then I started to notice that I was able to walk more, and faster. I was able to get up from a chair with less pain. I wasn’t feeling sick all the time.
Now, here’s the kicker. I have not lost hardly any weight (maybe 5 lbs) in about 18 months. Do I have weight to lose? Yes, about 20 more lbs. Am I worried? No, I am not, and here is why. My body is still healing. I’m 52 years old tomorrow, so I have 50 years of doing damage to my body to reverse.
I know that my body is healing with the protein and nutrients that I’m giving it. I know this because if I have too many carbs in a day, or if I accidentally have soy, my body hurts. But when I eat clean, it feel good, I have more energy, I can move. These, for me, are a correlation. Consider as well, what is called a Non Scale Victory (NSV). When I started my journey with Keto, I was moving into a 3XL shirt and a Size 20. Today, I’m wearing a L and a size 12. This is the inflammation being healed, as I’ve only lost about 20 lbs.
But it’s not just me. My husband has started to eat more Keto and he is noticing improved health as well. His joints do not hurt as much, and he’s able to recover each day faster than he used to when he has overdone it. This, is also why I know that eating this way heals our body.
So, how will I know that my body has healed and I can change the way I eat? Well, I’ll know my body is healed, or close to healing, when two things happen. The not as important thing is losing that last bit of weight, as my body will finally whoosh that weight away. The other? When I am able to exercise and lift a normal amount of weight. I will get there, slowly but surely.
So, are you ready to heal? I’m ready to help you. Let’s do this together, shall we?
