After 2.5 years of therapeutic keto, my metastatic cancer is resolved!

October 09, 2023

How long have you been doing keto?
2.5 years

What motivated you to start keto?

What benefits/successes have you experienced?
After 2.5 years of a Keto therapeutic diet and Tamoxifen/Megace, my metastatic endometrial cancer in my lung and soft tissue and lymph node have resolved!

What was the hardest part?
I was already on a Mediterranean diet so the transition to plant based keto was no problem but I recently went to a ketovore diet (to improve my protein intake, iron and immunity) and went from 20 carbs per day to almost zero and now 3 weeks in, I still have diarrhea but plenty of energy. I am told the diarrhea will stop soon.

What were the keys or top tools to your success?
A purpose and goal, my lovely supportive husband, and seeing my 4 beautiful grandchildren grow up.

Did you measure your ketones and/or glucose and if so, how did that help you?
Yes, at least a couple times per day. I am staying in the GKI (Glucose Ketone Index) zone of 1 to 2 now.

What tips or words of wisdom can you share?
Stick in there if you’re just starting out. I have never felt better in my life!
