A 28-Day Trail Project.
Current Australian health statistics show a decline in collective health. Data shows blood sugar imbalance, notably from 1980. The likely reason: increased exposure and promotion of industrialised food.
The result; 56% of the population over ten years of age are now living over their ideal weight, and 'common' lifestyle-induced illness, like; diabetes T2, premature cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, mental stress, chronic inflammation, and insomnia are also increasing through Australia.
This is 'not' a diet but the practice of eating choices we forgot. The Keto-model works by lowering (excessive) carbohydrates, replacing them with 'good' healthy fats. Total calorie volume is usually less. Keto principles aren't promoting high fat, but a more even and balanced consumption of macronutrients. Finding one's optimum balance of nutrients and calories requires practice.

28-Day Carb Test
If you; lose unnecessary weight/fat, now live with seemingly endless mental & physical energy, forget about that annoying joint niggle, now sleep like a baby, and you were nice to the bloke you cut you off, then, you were probably consuming excessive & unnecessary carbohydrates.
I suggest you continue employing 'some' of the principles you have now learnt.
