Richard has been on a ketogenic diet since April, 2014. Within 6 months he had no bio markers of diabetes. I have been on the diet since February 1st, 2016. As of this writing (Feb 22) I have dropped 27 pounds and I feel powerful.
2 Keto Dudes is a document of my journey to wellness AND Richard's continuing success story. We share lots of science, research, and (of course) recipes!
The Ketogenic Diet is essentially reducing carbohydrates to less than 30 grams per day, reducing protein to a moderate level (I eat about 100 grams a day) and getting the rest of your calories from fat. You also need to increase your salt intake (because the kidneys desalinate your body while in ketosis) and take an electrolyte supplement (potassium and magnesium, especially).
