Subject: RE: BS: Keto diet - anybody try it? Like it?
My psychiatrist brought it up as I have noticed that complex carbs disrupt my mental health. Apparently not just epileptics but bipolar folks can benefit.

I pretty much eat no carbs now that aren't an element of a vegetable. If I do, the next day I am emotionally labile. Even given up my usual daily 7 m&ms or other small amount of chocolate.

However I am *not* getting most of my calories from fat, though I cook with olive oil and butter (grass-fed and lots of it). I eat meat, veg that aren't starchy, and almonds. I do put splashes of fruit juice in my seltzer. Fried is ok, but not breaded.

I feel fine, healthy and even-tempered.
