    I am a 48 yrs old lady and recently diagnosed with Type 2 DM with a BMI of 21 at the time of diagnosis.I have been following LCHF diet ever since and have lost 7 kg in weight and now at the point of becoming under weight.
    I enjoy the LCHF diet but is it really for someone who is so slim.I am hesitant to join the membership. Please advise.

    you need to eat more fat, also nuts like pistachios and macadamia are good way of getting your calories in.
    loads of avocado and olive oil.
    there is loads of tasty recipes for making nut flour cookies, nut breads etc.

    Hi Alexx!

    Many people eat LCHF without gall bladders with no problem. See bottom of this post:

    I have been doing Keto for 9 months now. I started out losing 30 pounds but within the last two months I have come to a complete stop. The scale isn't moving at all. I know there are other ways to measure and I have taken them into account. I have tried on clothes that were too tight and they still feel tight. Honestly I have not done measuring yet but I feel like if I am not seeing a difference in my clothing then I won't see a difference on the tape measure. I am fasting 16-20 hours a day. I am sitting down to one meal which I have measured out. My meals vary daily and I do incorporate BPC daily as well. I just don't know what I could be doing wrong??

    Great information. Does fat store in you're veins and clog your arteries?

    Hi , I've been on the Lchf diet for 3.5 weeks now with a weight loss of just 1 kilo.
    Is that normal?
    I have followed this way of eating 98% and have not had a cheat meal or anything. Also as everyone says I have not yet experienced a drop in appetite.
    Pls advice

    Please pm me on facebook when you get an answer. As I am having the same issues as you. I have been on LCHF for 5wks tomorrow. My blood sugar (no meds) has also hit a plateau and my fasting sugar is still at 7.6mmol to 8.8mmol :( that is also why I am sceptical on buying a membership. Still hungry, I eat LC cottage cheese pancakes, porks, chicken, all with butter or cream or cream cheese, I have an evening snack so my ativan doesn't kick in too fast as well as so I don't wake up at 3am starving.

    "...cottage cheese..."

    Not low carb.

    What's the evening snack?

    5 weeks might be a short time
    for significant results. Don't give up.

    Hi everyone! I started the keto plan on Aug. 20 2016. Lost 8 pounds the first week. Hooray! Went almost 2 months and did not lose any thing, then it started to drop have now lost 18.5 pounds, have stalled this past week or so because of stress struggling to get back down to 5% carbs again. Started to listen to keto on YouTube again to get me motivated again. Found the diet dr. I am excited again, so don't give up just hang in there. Should mention I am 80 years old and doing great.

    Hi. Doctor Westman says we should choose between beeing a far burning person or a carbohidrate burning person... what happens with metabolic flexibility? From a Paleo point of view...metabolic flexibility is very important. I would appreciate more information about Metabolic Flexibility...

    Hi Doctore can i eat the Liquid Aminos Soy Sauce and Tabasco Pepper Sauce for LCHF diet..?

    I have start this diet for a month and still so manny question.

  20. Stuart
    Hey Luna, as a blanket rule, look at the label of *everything* you pick up. My personal rule is if it has more than 10% carbs it goes back on the shelf. By the time you add meat, cheese and other oils etc you will be about where you need to be.

    Not asking medical advice here, just help in finding additional reading and research materials.

    I’ve been doing low carb with intermittent fasting for 2+ years, lost 68#, but now have developed hypothyroidism with thyroid nodules. Can low carb cause this? Also my BUN is too low and my doc says that shows that I have been on a near-starvation way of eating despite calorie consumption of over 2000 calories per day (I keep track on the "Lose It" app which tracks my carbs)

    The intermittent fasting groups say that it couldn’t possibly cause hypothyroidism...but the low carb group says the same. SOMETHING is causing it. Can you recommend resources to help me decide what to do with my diet choices? All the low thyroid diets include large amounts of beans and other high carb foods.

    I’m so confused. If I can’t get this resolved, my doc wants to send me to a specialist and do needle biopsies. Akkkk..please help!

    I am a graphic designer and therefore largely sedentary. I am 63 and have 10 kgs to lose. I am following a keto diet and I am eating between say 700 and 900 calories a day.. I am not hungry. People tell me that this is slowing my metabolism and therefore won't lose weight. Do I have to eat more? I'm not sure what to do?
    The doctors that were on podcast state that you shouldn't count calories. Well, using you cannot imput macros without starting at the top with calories. Is there another site that you can do macros with calories? I'd appreciate it very much.
