She doesn't have any health issues (thank God) and there isn't any diabetes in her family. I read recently that the Keto diet is a good diet but it's very complex and hard for people to stay on it.

Anyone have any other information on it?
There are levels of the Keto diet, last I saw my doctor, I told him I was checking out a book from library on it, he said great, gave me the thumbs up. I received notice the book is ready for pick up at my library, I probably won't get over there till next week Tuesday. But, I personally wouldn't ever go to the extreme long term of restricting carbs but for so long. I know first week or two of the one I usually do I it's 20 net carbs after that you raise the level of carbs allowed. All I know is I'm allowed as much bacon as I want, so I'm good with the first two weeks of eating that way. But I really don't care for a lot of red meat so Shrimp, fish will fill my plate often, plus I love veggies.

This gives you a visual of what keto looks like
