I am never on here these days but wow it is nice to see the site design more modern
Anyway, I am in Vegas, Miami, Ohio, Chicago, NYC.. basically a travel freak lately for my business and doing it with a smile. I finally buckled down and went on a Ketogenic Diet after Cleveland Clinic and Bo Shen kept telling me to do it (high fat diet). Not only is it great for your muscle mass and figure but I haven't been on antibiotics or VSL, inflammation reducers, etc.
My breaking point was months back I had surgery on my arm and got put on 2 heavy antibiotics then got c.diff again and went on vanco. After all that calmed down my GI said that I should be fine since there is no bacteria in the gut and handed me VSL to take for inflammation. I also had a lot of red blood coming out of my stoma so the valve was inflamed and irritated. I was ordered to have my pouch scoped in 2 weeks to figure out what was up with the pockets of gas and what felt like popcorn going off in my pouch all the time (gas explosions) and tons of pain if I did not get better by then. I did not feel like having any more scopes done so I changed stuff up quickly.
So I went Keto (watch my macros) and my pouch runs like a well oil machine. I cut out all carbs and follow the diet to a key. Went back to Muay Thai, tons of energy. Less sleep and no pouch issues at all. I haven't formed gas in months. So carbs are the enemy and fat is good. I guess the doctors at Cleveland Clinic aren't idiots after all lol
