Some call a Keto diet “trendy.” Many people have tried this eating plan with great success, so we can call it successful if you stick with it properly.
You will be choosing more fatty fish, olive oil, nuts, eggs, bacon, butter, and cheese than on most other diet programs.
The first couple of weeks, you might see headaches, fatigue, and drowsiness. This can be expected. You are changing your whole body’s fuel system. This period is called Keto Flu.

Another great blog, a must read
I believe that there are still too many people out there who don’t really know if Keto is for them or not because “yes” for them Keto is just trendy.
Someone with adrenal fatigue like myself could really benefit from Keto. I have a hard time committing myself to it even though my body does better on a low carb diet. I’m addicted to sugar and really want to get off of that addiction which has now sparked my interest in the Keto diet, er, lifestyle.
