    Wow I really needed to read this! I was literally sitting here contemplating whether I should try a Keto diet and if I could succeed at it, when your article came up in front of me. Saint Michael is also dear to my heart and linking him in your article to diet and health really struck a chord with me. Thank you so much!

      Hi Errin, so glad you found my experience helpful. I’ve been adhering to the keto plan for over a year now and have lost a total of 80 pounds. My husband and I still stay true to it about 90% of the time but allow ourselves holidays and special occasions. With the help of Saint Michael we find it an exceptionally simple lifestyle – and delicious too! Good luck in your adventure into the keto way of life!

    I wonder how this would work without a gallbladder?

      I would strongly suggest you check with your doctor but I have heard of many success stories from people with different health conditions. Good luck!

  3. “After all, our mission is Salvation, not pleasure.”

    Then again, the two aren’t inherently opposed. I find ketosis pleasurable, in that it makes me feel good. Decades of chronic depression went away with zero effort and struggle.

    I found the keto diet one of the easiest things I’ve ever done. And being in ketosis also made fasting easy. I can go days without eating and hunger doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

    Maybe we don’t have to prove our holiness and demonstrate our faith by imposing unnecessary suffering on ourselves. The mentality of struggle and self-denial can become dysfunctional, unlikely to bring one closer to God.
