(A) Opinions vs. (B) Results–I’ll pick (B) please!

This journey before we came across Keto was a long and winding road. A few times we pretty much just fell off a steep road onto the craggy rocks below that left us bruised and battered. And much less healthy. Since we are considered “seniors” we have had plenty of years behind us, which means we have tried everything. Weight Watchers (both joined, and I even am a “Lifetime Member”), Nutri System, The Daily Plate (now called LiveStrong), the DASH Diet for diabetics, and a myriad of other fad diets that came along over the past 40 years or so Read More ...
