When I started following the ketogenic diet, my wardrobe - and that's a generous word for the cruddy collection of clothes I owned - was comprised of those items with the highest potential to stretch and the lowest potential to draw attention to myself. If you've never been really overweight you may not be able to identify with the magic of the elastic waistband and how that expandable feature allows one to breath as well as to delude oneself. If your trousers still fit you must have stopped putting on weight, right?
It took me deciding to 'do the opposite', to get out of my comfort zone - and the insistence of my Lovely Mate one day a couple of years ago - to make the leap from someone who dressed like a middle-class bag lady to something of fashionista. I now revel in getting dolled up and attending social functions. This is the opposite of where I was in my head previously. This video explains it a bit. And, oh yeh, I hit a new weight loss low this morning. I'm now down 91.2 pounds since starting the ketogenic diet and 109.3 pounds lower than my (known) highest weight. I buried the lede!
I’ve been fortunate to have exposure to leading researchers, physicians and journalists regarding the ketogenic diet, also known as LCHF (low carb/high fat). We are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths. I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning. So, if you have something to add, go for it. Thanks! - Casey
