I recently completed the two-week challenge with Diet Doctor. I was referred to your site a couple of years ago by a friend but forgot about it.
My interest in keto stems from the “mental clarity” that so many people speak of after they have committed to the diet. Weight loss was a secondary concern for me. I am happy to say that I have felt significantly better over all after two weeks.
I am a young guy just 24, and I have been battling anxiety and depression for a few years. I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in a long time and that I have noticed a general stabilization in my mood that has lowered my anxiety and increased my energy. My depression also seems to have faded somewhat and I have also begun to experience that “mental clarity” that others have spoken of. I have really enjoyed the videos on your site have found some other really great resources there.
I am motivated to stick with LCHF and see where it will take me! I am hoping that I continue to experience the benefits that I have discovered this far.
Thanks and keep up the amazing work!
PS. I lost 6 pounds (3 kg) in the first 2 weeks.
