Then again, something else to monitor. You are on so many medications for conditions that might be positively impacted by the diet. Maybe keep a journal of how you are feeling, you may be able to reduce the bipolar medications too?
You can start a journal here, or keep track in a notebook, what you ate, how hungry and when, your BP and BG, level of side effects, more energy?, sleep better, less joint pain?, is the mood brightening? cycle of moods changing. Start your journal with "Know Your Why" ..what goals do you have beside weight loss? normalize BP and get off medications?, better breathing, stable moods, BG below 100, able to walk farther, etc. Whatever it is for you, make a list and anytime you are tempted to go off plan...read over these "Whys" and focus on the ultimate goals.
Excellent recent update review on Keto and mental health that will offer you another goal to shoot for.
Also search the DD success stories for bipolar and more inspiration.
Key to success is planning ahead...decide how LC meals will fit into your daily routine. Would having a specific meal plan and shopping list for two weeks help you focus or cause too much stress? DietDoctor has a two week challenge based on the Duke 20g carbs plan. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/get-started
Maybe instead it is easier for you to fill your fridge and pantry with allowed foods (also clean out all the junk from your house that isnít on plan) and eat when hungry, not making recipes or following a meal plan when in a low mood.
Decide now the best way for you to stay on plan that fits your lifestyle. For example, no cook meals: https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb...eals/no-cooking
