The Keto Flu

The Keto Flu

My sweet Linda was so adamant, about losing lots of weight;
She heard about the Keto Diet, and that it was absolutely great!
So, last Sunday we plunged into it, spending hundreds on its supplies;
Both dedicated to sticking with it, but then we got a big surprise!
.
There’s a side affect known as Keto Flu, which some will sadly get;
Their bodies reject the fatty blends, that to the T are set!
We started on it last Monday, this strict diet regimen;
But by Tuesday, there were messages that Linda’s tummy began to send!
.
It said it was unhappy, from the plethora of fat;
That she had to be ingesting, for the extra pounds combat!
Each day, her woes augmented, nausea hit its peak;
Yesterday, we reached a decision, that other diets must we seek!
.
So, this morning it’s back for returning, the unopened groceries;
The dreaded Keto constituents, that sickened my dear baby!
It’s also back to greener pastures, we’ve missed our fruit and veggies so;
But we’re not giving up on weight loss, we’ll find another route to go!
.
.
Goodbye to Keto
Not meant for just anyone
Tummies can get sick

Dear Greg,

No!  She had her flu shot, and this has nothing to do with the regular flu.
The Keto Flu, is a negative reaction to the foods in the Keto Diet, many containing really high fat, which Linda's system would not adapt to.  We just started again this morning with our yogurt and fruit, and we are hoping that she will start feeling better soon.

Love,
Linda and Larry xxx

Hello Larry and Linda...

You often leave a comment with a clever Haiku or even a Poem...

This I will leave with you...

I would have like to have offered a helping hand but, you'd probably just yell and tell me I'm wrong as you have done many times before...

I will keep it to myself and just say...

Get well soon!

Hugs...

My Dear Sparrowsong,

Au contraire, a "helping hand" would have been gladly accepted.
Guess you've had some experience with the Keto Diet.
As far as we're concerned, like Johnny Paycheck once sang, "Take that diet and shove it".

Love,
Larry xxx

So sad to to hear about Linda. Hope she gets better. I don't have the heart for Keto, thank God I am slim and so I don't have any weight to shed.
She'd be fine. My love to her

Love you both dearly

Our Dear Sweet Rose,

Just off it now for the third day, Linda is feeling much better, not ingesting all the horrible fatty concoctions on Keto.  
Good riddance to bad rubbish.

All our love,
Linda and Daddio xxx
P.S. You are so beautifully slim, that maybe we should go on the Rose Sho diet.
