Belly Fat!

I’ve changed my diet a lot since my diagnosis. I’ve cut out refined sugars and carbohydrates, because what I’ve read seems to suggest is that high sugar and high carb diets are bad for the body and of course the brain.

My eating pattern has changed also and again this is based on research. I don’t have breakfast and do not eat till after 12 and stop eating anything after 6pm. This means that I have 18hours without eating.

Firstly, I am not hungry in the morning and sometimes I find that I go way over 12 before having my first meal. However, if I do eat in the morning, I seem to feel hungry all the time, not starving hungry, but picky. A packet of biscuits can go in no time!

This has been my eating pattern for several months and although the amount I’m eating has gone down and generally I think I feel better, I still have this belly fat!?

There is a possible genetic explanation. I’m the youngest of 9, that being one sister and seven brothers and they all have what may be called, a bit of a belly!

My diet is such that I would have thought it would have had a major impact on my belly fat, but this doesn’t seem to be true, so could my low sugar and carbohydrates, basically a Keto Diet, not really be working?

There are always new diets becoming popular, I would like to know if you have any comments?

I’m thinking of maybe sticking with the eating pattern, time wise, but relaxing the over restriction with sugars, and carbohydrates, and see if this makes a difference?

It could be a simple case of eating in moderation?

Please comment on anything I have said. Thank You!
