Basically high fat, low carb, with enough proteins to keep your muscles. 65% of your cals should come from fat, 30% from protein, and 5% carbs. Here's a document with the explanation/science:

For someone who is gluten intolerant and insulin resistant, it's the best way of eating I've come across. Especially since it's easy to stick to and I don't have any desires to cheat plus, you can see if you're in 'ketosis' by using Ketostix (sold in the diabetic section at Wal-Mart.)

Since doing keto, my blood pressure has gone down and my sugar levels are at healthy levels instead of nearing pre-diabetic levels

I can't lose 100 pounds, but I can lose 10 pounds 10 times.

One for every 5 lbs lost!!
First ten pounds lost 1/30/14!
Second ten pounds lost 2/23/14!
