I revised it September 4 2020 while I was writing "A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook."
I have enjoyed twenty-two years in a low carbohydrate lifestyle, maintaining a stable weight, eating great meals, experiencing overall good health, never going hungry, incurring in diet violations when I think it is worth it, staying in ketosis most of the time, having no regrets, and benefiting from an unexpected mental sharpness. I should also mention that I have not experiencied sexual impotence since I hear that some men with Type-2 diabetes might.
I am still reading and learning about nutrition to make sure that this way of eating will also maximize my longevity.
In 2019, at the age of sixty-three, my small pot belly came back and I had to make adjustments to my low carbohydrate lifestyle to eliminate it again. I experimented with low carb low fat (Stillman diet) and low carb high fat (ketogenic diet).
I found out that to lose weight, I had to space out my meals using Intermittent Fasting (IF) and reduce my food intake to only the food that is essential.
At the same time, I had to make sure that I was not deficient in any essential nutrients.
I had to use my knowledge of low carbohydrate diets and my skills as a process engineer to design a diet that I can use the rest of my life.
I am writing this experience in "A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook" which will be published December 25 2020 and is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price.
