Keto: Expectations vs. Reality
What I expected: rapid and continuous weight loss What happened: rapid weight loss up to a point, then more normal weight loss I also experienced a lot of pain in my hips and sciatic nerve. However, my overall arthritic pain dropped to almost nothing. This is a poor trade because the hip pain is pretty bad.
So I did some research. Looks like this is common with people who have AS. There are anecdotal reports about bumping carbs up to around 50 – 75g giving some relief. I haven't figured out how that works yet but I'll give it a try.
