    • Hello from Perth WA - Newbie on Keto

      Hi all. So glad I found this forum, I have been lurking about reading lots of posts and you all seem so friendly and helpful and ready to help and share.

      I went to the Drs a few weeks back, I am going through menopause and the hot flushes that come every hour or so are becoming unbearable. I have had them for 18 months now, and my Dr won't even consider HRT until I have lost some weight and my BP is down. So I changed Drs and the new one pointed me in the direction of a website Dietdoctor.com which is run by doctors and promoted by them. They recommend LCHF or Ketogenic eating plans which I have adopted the Keto one with 16:8 fasting to kick things along.

      After 10 days, I feel energetic, clear headed, not hungry at all and have lost 3kg.

      I have been a yoyo dieter all my life, tried every one known to man, but never this way of eating. It just feels so natural and whilst I won't say easy, it certainly is easier than other diets I have tried.

      :D :D

      Anyway, I will go back to reading and learning all that I can.

    • Welcome Kirsa! :)

      Great loss there for your first 10 days!

      Lowcarb has often been used for those with PCOS, it will be interesting to see how you go. They only problem I had with it hormonally was when I was taking the pill.
