    In full recognition that I am an n=1 sample in a self-reported, unblinded, uncontrolled study, I’d say it’s worth a closer look.

    Since cutting my carbs to a Low Carb level (I’m not always full on keto), I’d say my stamina, sleep, and mental clarity have all improved. Not in anyway a cure, just a way to help me eek-out a bit more living from what my ME energy budget currently offers.

    It has also become much easier to keep my weight stable without feeling like I’m depriving myself all the time.

    Is this just co-incidental to me starting Low Carb?
    Quite possibly.

    Will I keep on eating this way?
    Yup for now I will.
    My sweet tooth has dramatically reduced & I really don’t miss carbs like pasta & breakfast cereal at all.

    I completely lost my sweet tooth and didn't miss carbs when I went gluten free for 8 months.
