We were talking to the neurologist the other day - and telling him that we were all doing Atkins. This diet is very similar to the ketogenic diet that epileptics are put onto. although not quite as strict. We told him we had noticed that in the week since Cait had started it - we had noticed an improvement.
He told us - that to make it truly effective we had to fast for two days before we started to put us into ketosis. Well even though we had all started the diet - we didn't see the harm in fasting.
So starting on Friday night - we have been fasting. Fast forward to this morning - I AM STARVING - although do not feel as starving as I did yesterday. We actually had to give Cait some food last night, because the pills she takes make her feel sick and dizzy if she has no food, but we made sure it was super high protein.
Will be interesting to see if this spurs on the weight loss over the next couple of weeks.
