My Experience on the Keto Diet: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The ketogenic diet is all the rage these days, and even I jumped on the bandwagon and found myself in ketosis in an attempt to heal from blood sugar dysregulation caused by years of low FODMAP, low carb eating.

The keto diet helped me be able to reintroduce higher FODMAP foods without having reactions, but it also caused me to develop physiological insulin resistance, HPA dysregulation (adrenal fatigue), and disrupt other hormones leaving me feeling exhausted and totally depleted.

I don’t regret my time in ketosis, but I hope that sharing my unique experience will allow others to make a more informed decision than I did when deciding if this popular diet is right for them.
