Oh and love the new profile pic
Just to clarify, YOU may not be effected at all by the diet but, as a general guideline, it is advised that persons with certain conditions work first and often in conjunction with their doctor.
IP really wants to ensure that the health of everyone on the program is considered. It isn't possible to predict every outcome but, for some conditions, it is possible to be a bit proactive in approaching matters.
I am sure you will be encouraged by the doctor to do this. It is a very good program and it does support the retention of heart muscle and heart health.
Go ahead and start preparing. If nothing else, eating a healthy low calorie diet will still do wonders for you. Anything above 60g of carb a day should keep you out of ketosis but still give you the benefits of preparing for when you get on IP.
