My Keto Journey

I am 43 years old and have struggled with my weight since giving birth to my children almost 19 and 16 years ago.  I don’t remember exactly when “pre-diabetes” started being discussed at doctors’ appointments, but I do remember not being given advice on how to prevent it.  My doctor talked a lot about eating lots of fruits and vegetables and exercising 5 times per week for at least 20-30 minutes each time.  I have also dealt with depression for about as long as I have been dealing with weight issues.  I have been on up to 3 mental health medications at a time for a very long time.  My husband has Type 2 Diabetes and, most recently, was on 3 medications for that.  I guess I just assumed that at some point I would have to start taking meds to combat Type 2 Diabetes.  I did take the Diabetes Education classes offered through Wellspan, locally.  However, they recommended eating between 60-75 g of carbohydrates per meal plus 3 snacks of 15 g of carbohydrates.  Eventually,  I would discover how silly this is if I wanted to avoid/reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
