Zero Carb DiaryA place to record my journey and share information
This blog is to document my journey on the Zero Carb diet. A few years back I started to feel ill. I mean really ill. I was tired all the time. I was always in pain, from head to toe some days. I felt like something was seriously wrong. It turns out I was a Type 2 Diabetic. To cut a long story short, I decided to try the Zero Carb Diet and this blog is here for me to document my journey. I hope this can become a good resource for those wanting to follow the diet.
I started this diet in early January 2018 – my starting weight was 23st 5lb. I will post weekly my progress and any updates here as well as informational posts about the Zero Carb Diet.
I am not an expert or a doctor, and I can only share with you my own experiences. I hope you can learn something from this site.
