My father tried it last year. He lost a lot of weight but also started feeling extremely tired after doing it for 2 months. Then he started having headaches everyday so we literally forced him to visit a docor and the doctor did his blood test and found that because of the extreme Keto diet that he was doing, his body became malnutrioned. So, he adviced my father to stop doing that Keto diet completely and go back to eating food as a normally.

I strongly feel that instead of doing this keto diet, people should just start eating healthy.

I tried it for one month with my husband. At first, I felt good and lost bloating and a few pounds. However, I then had a really bad flare with surprise blowouts. I am still struggling to recover. I know what to do: more fiber, enemas.

Hi I'm starting the elimination diet at the moment when I stick to it properly I can tell a difference big time . I'm not saying it's a cure but I've not slept a full night for 2 years and I did last night . But then I've just sneaked 2 pieces of pizza of my kids tea and got belly ache ect again lol . And I've been feeling brill all day till then . Just will power and I'm all ways hungry and want to eat bad stuff to help me put a bit of weight back on lol .
