Congratulations , excellent work ! I also am leaning towards a keto diet and reducing my carbs drastically !!!
a couple of years ago I started with: no gluten, no dairy, no sugar, no meat, no junk or fast foods -
yes to probiotics, l-glutamine powder, ground flax seeds, etc, etc
I am hypothyroid for many years as well as having PATM - however with being faithful to my plant based diet I am PATM free - however not losing weight -so that is what caused my interest in Keto lifestyle !!
Iam eating avocados more each day, coconut oil
what other foods do u suggest or use in your keto lifestyle ?
Congrats again on your journey to wellness and God's continued best to you always !
Hi! I'm happy to see someone else has found relief from their PATM symptoms. It's not easy but it can be done :0)
Keto diets rely on very little to no carbs, moderate protein and higher than normal fat intake. Avocado and coconut oil are a good start. I rely in dairy, meats, eggs and fish to fulfill my fat and protein requirements. My only carbs come from green veggies and nuts in moderation. I see that you are vegetarian/vegan so meat/poultry is out of the question but do you eat fish? Eggs? Those are two good ways to add fat to your diet. I avoid soy but I suppose it is also a great plant based protein, not sure how much fat is in it though.
It can be hard to restrict carbs. The obvious ones like pasta, bread and rice are easy but don't forget the potatoes, corn, beans, pumpkin, etc. Even most fruit are off limits. With your diet as restricted as it already is keto may be doubly hard for you. A good Internet search is in order so you can gain more knowledge about adopting this way of eating. The bodybuilding websites are great as well as the sites for epileptics who control their seizures through keto. LowCarbFriends.com is another favorite of mine.
I wish you the best of luck and continuing health :0)
happy Sunday ! I just started eating eggs again as of last week - cage free, brown eggs. I scramble n then add 1 avocado for a meal. I prefer shrimp for my fish choice - is that ok ?
breakfast smoothies: avocado, celery, ground flax seed, watermelon, stevia, almond milk
no dairy for me
what about : EAS shakes,Atkins snack bars, Pork skins ( in the chip aisle)
thanx for the resources, will check out
God Bless always !!!!!
i have a question if patm is not a odor related then why ppl look at us with disgust?and some times they laugh at us why?can any one explain?..
GOD bless us all......
That's great that you eat eggs, good source of protein and fat plus they're very versatile. Shrimp is good too.
The Atkins shakes are a great on the go meal replacement or snack. I use those as well as the bars and they even have "treats" that mimick popular candy brands that are a lifesaver when cravings hit lol. I've also tried Muscle Milk, a product marketed more towards bodybuilders and athletes, the vanilla flavor isn't bad and I can usually get them in the refrigerated section of most chain retail pharmacies or gas stations when I'm on the go.
Breakfast smoothies are a good option. I would add a little coconut oil to your recipe to up the fat or as a change from the Avocado sometimes. I would probably nix the watermelon in favor of a couple drops vanilla extract or a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to switch up the flavors for a bit of variety. Unsweetened coconut flakes can be substituted for the flax too.
Looks like you're off to a good start :0)
