yep - old habits die hard - but you can change them.
for all my almost 50 years before Keto - i ate a high carbohydrate diet - i got into sports nutrition in my teens and at that time it was all about
complex carbs for energy some protein and some veg - v little fat.
fat made me break out so I was averse to it for that reason too
I was very resistant to try Keto - but I saw my partner do so well on it - and I was desperate to get well again - so I had to give it a go.
it made a huge difference - and it took only around 4-6 weeks to completely adjust - and now i look forward to every single meal at least as much as before - if not more so.
i am eating mainly meat and eggs and fish and non-starchy veg - plus olive oil; and coconut oil and herbs - less than 20g of carbs - a day and way more nutritional density than I ever have before.
my meat intake includes many of the non-lean cuts to ensure I get fat and nutrients other than just lean meat, shoulder, brisket, collar,
i also now eat liver, heart, and tongue regularly - i now find all of these things really tasty!
so even a die-hard like me can convert successfully.
i would also say that the discussion of what is the ideal diet for a human being will run and run ad infinitum - and there are many passionate people with firmly held beliefs on either side.
but for Lyme patients - and for me in particular - its a much less contentious issue
i just can't deal with carbs or lots of fiber any longer
so, since those are not available to me, I need to choose the dietary intake that i can tolerate and support my health as far as is possible.
This Paleo-Keto approach fits for me - i made no progress until i tried this
