Thanks Waves,

You always find the best studies and articles. I am researching which keto recipes will help me regain the most weight. According to the keto urine strips, I am in ketosis. I was really happy about that.

Thanks for the kind thoughts as I go through radiation. I'm four weeks in and don't have any side effects. I don't have any fatigue and my skin is minimally red. I don't think that's just from a keto diet, of course. I was fortunate that my oncotype came back that chemo was not going to be of benefit for me. My dear friends going through radiation right now with me are all coming out of chemo and having a harder time of this. It breaks my heart. Radiation is hard enough!

I need to incorporate more muscle-building into my day as you recommended. I struggled to LOSE weight all my life and now I'm swinging in the wind on the other side of the pendulum.

Love

Esther

I love this thread. I was looking above at the Macro ratios; I believe my diet has recently been the Modified 3:1 Keto diet. I eat as much organic produce as possible (ouch on the price tags, though!). For protein I choose only clean, grass fed/cage-free/antibiotic-free proteins to assist my body to recover from radiation. I am five weeks in with radiation and have no fatigue, for which I am astonished and grateful.

There is a wonderful app called MyPlate which allows you to reset your Macros to assist with staying on your keto diet of choice. I have modified all three macro categories to fit my goals. I love that you can just scan the bar code on a food item and portion size, click on "I ate that" and it automatically loads all of the nutrient counts into your daily planner. I find that on the days that I use the app, I achieve my calories and macro goals, but when I do not, I fall short of my required caloric intake for the day (I am 25 pounds underweight and trying to gain muscle back). You can also add your daily water intake and exercise.

Blessings,

Esther
