Wink Newie

Hello! I'm new to this forum. Did Lcarb for years, and lost, regained, yo-yoed, tried serveral diets which never gave permanent weightloss. As many of you know, dieting does not work! Anyways, I lost about 20-25 lbs on my own about 2 yrs ago. Was diagnosed with pre-diabetes in 2014, but as of january 1, 2018 of this year, I've been doing the ketogenic diet. Discovered it through word of mouth, from friends and relatives doing the diet. I really don't like using the word "diet." Have lost an additional 11 lbs on keto, in 4 months, totaling 31 lbs as of today! 'cause of being pre-diabetic, I was really scared of getting type 2 diabetes! So, I had made up my mind as to go to the gym 3x a week, and have increased it to 4x per week for 3.5 months! I'm really proud of my accomplishments! :up:

Thanks

Welcome Tammy

So many new folks! I added some search advice to your question about avatars.

Also, It is helpful that everyone check out the topics starting from the Forum Index Page. http://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php? You can see which topics are active and what topics get little love. Some topics are hidden a bit, like Tips and Stalls are under Health.

Diabetes has its own sub-forum under Low Carb Health and Technical Forum.
http://forum.lowcarber.org/forumdisplay.php?f=45

There you will also find Dr Jason Fung's Intermittent Fasting protocol, information about Dr Bernsteins' Diabetes University, Dr Eric Westman's clinic program at Duke and Heal Clinics, Virta Health, etc. Please Read back through all those threads for information and to ask questions you may have about those diabetes protocols.

All the best

Since you are doing a more Ketogenic version now, you might like this cooking page. http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=470795 As well as all the Keto recipes on DietDoctor... I am currently on a kick with the easy-peasy Keto Plates.
Dr Westman's clinic plan, based on the Atkins induction protocol used in his clinic, was always "Ketogenic". Dr Westman has some great talks on diabetes and his clinic treatment on the DietDoctor website.
This one is open to all. https://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf-dia...dr-eric-westman
