So, my bestie is morbidly obese. 7 weeks ago, he went in for a check up, and clocked in at 500 on the nose. Blood sugar all out of whack, borderline diabeetus,eye popping blood pressure etc etc. After a complete workup, it was discovered he is now Insulin resistant. He's been so fat for so long, that it doesn't matter how much Insulin gets dumped in. So his doctor put him with a nutritionist, and it was decided to go hard core Keto. Just to try and get his body to start burning existing fat, instead of just the sugar dumps.
In 7 weeks, he's gone from 500 to 435. Very limited carbs and sugars, and a daily caloric intake of roughly 2,500 calories. Blood sugars, and blood pressure back in a normal range.
I'm very proud of him for wanting to not be dead anytime soon.
