Thyroid, type 2, single mom. Lets paint the picture, passed out with your daughter administering honey to you. I was eating a clean diet. I had a fall that resulted in a broken rib, stress, and the fact that I work with heavy metal, and chemicals, led to my thyroid going hyper. This in turn, started my type 2 journey. I am not a ‘big’ person, but extremely athletic, and very strong. I was failing. I gained 20lbs, not noticeable to most, it was all around my organs. I took action and researched. Vegan/raw vegan/juicing,,, what! I did this.. listening to the rhetoric, and my daughter was trying to revive me with Honey….. So, my doctor mentioned Keto. It worked. 6 months of trial and error. Then, I just threw in the towel, my ancestral eating had zero vegetables, and a little berries. I did it. I’m just over a year of straight carnivore. I’m feeling great. I’ve has massive reactions to ‘quick meals’ at friends houses that contain cornstarch or dextrose, people do not know how sensitive a person who is DE-sensitized to corn sugars are .(cheap ‘drunk’ tho) Anyway, keep it simple, eat food that make you thrive. My diabetes is not healed, only handled. But I feel great listening to my body vs popular nutritional advice! Thank you Shawn for this forum! Gretchen
