For the month of June, I’ll be eating keto to help me lose weight. While I won’t be perfect, I’m going to do my best to follow the ketogenic diet. My goal is to lose 10-15 pounds in 5 days.

Twenty or so years ago, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I had been taking insulin since birth, and as I grew older, I learned to control my blood glucose levels better and better. Even so, I was surprised the first time I went to the doctor with a high blood glucose reading. It was time to take control of my health and lose weight. To do so, I took up the low carb lifestyle. The results have been great. I’m no longer in a high risk category for developing diabetes and my A1C is now normal. My diabetes has been under control for over a decade, and my A1C is now within normal ranges.

Getting started on the keto diet can be a daunting task. Trying to find the right foods is one thing, but how do you plan a week of meals when you’re not sure what you will be eating? Well, I’ve got 5 days worth of Keto meals to get you started!. Read more about 5 ingredient keto recipes and let us know what you think.
