I started my KETO journey last year for weight loss/self improvement. Anyone with experience in it? Does anyone in Poland do it?

I did it for about half a year, wanted to know too what all the fuss was about...couldn't stand it longer anymore....you lose weight definitely, but you get a mean feeling in your mouth (for me the most disturbing thing)...if you don't watch your salt you get headaches and frankly all the time a quite similiar food get's boring...In time I missed my carbs and my fruits and what not horribly.

My personal opinion....do it sometimes, do it even regularly but it's not for all the time or even a longer time.

PS: But you get out of it smarter, be it even because you learn the science behind good and bad fats...

And my personal opinion is about the same as yours B.B.
The best diet is to avoid all the sugar that you can.
Difficult to do when it comes to drinks of any kind.
Stay away from pasta, potato's, breads and wheat.
FRESH fruits and vegetables and small portions of red lean meat, chicken and pork.

As far as the Keto diet goes ..................
The Keto weight loss diet has no fewer than SEVEN side-effects - and you are not gonna like them.

*nods*

That's it! I fully agree....I cut down even my beloved bread and potatoes and it showed....fresh veggies and fruits are a good exchange!

@Mr Grunwald, I've tried it for a while and later on modified it for my needs to the point that it stopped being a KETO diet anymore :-)

My overall body fat is low (below 10%) and I workout hard on a regular basis so I need my carbs to keep me going, and also more proteins than a strick keto diet provide to rebuild my muscles.

BTW. KETO diet was popularized with Tim Ferris book "Tools of Titans".

what I found out was saltwater (preferably quality salwater/himalayan salt) makes you retain water as you are on KETO and my migraines have stopped thanks to KETO. Also the listed symptoms is of when you are in the transfer phase. I have never felt better, and Ove been on KETO/low carb like a year now. I have only felt bad when I tries playing soccer Once.

I still got like 26% body fat, and my aim is 10-12% body fat so I will keep on going! :)
Also I stopped eating/drinking refined sugers for a whole year before I started with KETO. I think it helped me a lot

Funny you say that Mr. G as that totally makes sense.
I had migraines for years and went to countless doctors to no avail besides getting some kick ass pain killers.
One day I stumbled onto an excellent Nutritionist some years ago and she ask me how much water I was drinking a day.
When I told her none she was horrified and said at least three twelve ounce glasses per day.
I am proud to say I haven't had a migraine since.
So it sounds like you are very educated on diet and nutrition Mr. Grunwald.
Keep up the good work as without your health you have nothing.

Johnny reb, I am just researching it privately as much as I can. I never knew about ketones and how they work, I was positively surpised how my body works in that area. Was never good in biology, now I am just working up lost years in school

Does it give you dogs breath (meat only) or fart'y (Vegetarian) smell, or something worse.

When I was dating all the girls that I came across on a diet smelled badly in one place or another , quite amazing what diet can do when you think about it.

First phase of the KETO lifestyle is bad breath, it gets gone after a while (like? 6 months? Ish?) so I have no problems with bad breath anymore. One just has to stick to it

I don't mean bad breath, I mean a horrible feeling inside your mouth and that perpetual dryness, I felt the need to sip something all the time...that put me so off and that never ended.

@Bratwurst Boy

Coffee, lots of coffee...I don't have blood in my veins but coffee! :)

If you would have read the article I posted in post #3 it tells you that one of the side effects is bad breath.
If you drink large amounts of coffee......try quit drinking it for a few days and watch the headache you will experience from the withdrawals from the caffeine.

Doesn't seem like people in Poland are that interested in nutrition.

Jesus why didn't anyone tell me earlier in life, I have dumped some very beautiful intelligent women because I couldn't deal with their dog breath not knowing it might be temporary. I tried everything including suggesting that they start smoking (Cover it up) .

Have any of the wenches had this problem with blokes .

Do you tolerate garlic? That would work better than smoking. And much healthier, plus it`s an aphrodisiac.

Bad luck @dolnoslask

You can just Google symptoms+KETO and you can useally find answers in English as it's quite popular in America now from what I understand
