New London County Ketogenic Support Group
Are you in the New London (Connecticut) area, and interested in using a
to treat complications from metabolic syndrome including obesity, type 2 diabetes,
hypertension, cardiovascular symptoms, cancer, dementia, and chronic inflammation?
I'm Carl Franklin, president of the New London County Ketogenic Support Group.
I have been heavy all my life. In June, 2015 I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
My doctor knew about the benefits of low-carb diets, and cautiously encouraged me.
Later that year, I learned that a close friend had colon cancer and went under the knife.
This friend had gone ketogenic to keep his cancer in check, and it was working.
Richard Morris, a mutual friend,
had posted on Facebook about his success in reversing Type 2 Diabetes and obesity
with 'keto' and I was encouraged.
That was it. I was 366 pounds. I knew low-carb was the only thing that worked for
me. It was time. I started low-carb again in January, 2016, and this time did the
research that convinced me to go full-blown ketogenic. My doctor gave me the green
light, and I began keto in earnest on February 1st, 2016.
When I started the 2 Keto Dudes Podcast
with Richard Morris, I had already lost 24 pounds and was on my way to recovery.
After only 2 and a half months of keto eating, with no drugs and no exercise,
I had lost a total of 35 pounds (11 on keto), and my HBA1C (a three-month average
of blood sugar) went from 7.4 (diabetic) to 6.1 (pre-diabetic). In July, 2016,
I was 296 (70 pounds lighter), and my A1C was 5.9 (non-diabetic).
The ketogenic diet has been
proven safe and effective
for treating these core problems
associated with chronic high levels of insulin in the bloodstream. We have since started
a support group on Facebook, which now has over 8,000 members - most of which are doing
the same thing as me - reversing Type 2 Diabetes, a disease that the 'experts' tell you
is incurable, and only gets worse.
Please register yourself for our mailing list to keep up on local events including
meetings, 'meat'-ups, cooking classes, and the like. Meantime, you can read up on
the science and application of the ketogenic diet by reading
The Ketogenic Diet in a Nutshell,
a free e-book by Richard Morris and myself. Also, peruse the
2 Keto Dudes Blog and make sure to
check out our keto recipe collection!
That should get you off to a good start!
