It's time. Time for me to start eating better and making smarter choices. I did a search here for ladies on Keto but couldn't find much. I could just be missing it. Call it chemo/Tamoxifen brain.

Are any of you on Keto? Thoughts on breast cancer reduction? I've been listening to podcasts, reading articles and have started my low carb journey 2 weeks ago.

Best wishes to you all on your journeys.

I have several friends at work that are on Keto with low carbs and have lost lots of weight and have more energy. I’m thinking of doing the same since I’m diabetic and have fatty liver from tamoxifen. I’m thinking of putting shopping list together to buy all the stuff I need and see how it goes. They tell me once you incorporate way more healthy fats, you quit craving the carbs. Look up fat bombs also. They make them to get the fat they need every day. They also use the app carb manager with a big M on it that tracks your carbs, protein and fat. Put in your info and tells you how many grams of each you need every da

I've been on the keto diet since January of this year (lost 20 lbs) and was dx in March. I've stayed on keto through double mastectomy and chemo. I like how I feel on keto. Once you get through the first month or so it's the easiest diet I've ever been on. I like never being hungry while maintaining a healthy weight. I don't know if I believe the claims that it prevents cancer but I feel healthy. There are many different forms of this diet. I don't eat processed food or fake sugar. I eat lots of vegetables and get most of my fat from healthier sources (olive oil, avocado, grass fed beef, artisan cheeses). There are serious junk food keto dieters that I don't think can be healthy at all.
