I started this thread almost a year ago in May when I started Trulicity for the first time. Over the next three months, I lost almost 30 lbs and then, as my body became accustomed to Trulicity, it became less effective. I stopped in September and started a different drug - Jardiance.
Over the next few months, I gained back about six pounds. Well, that was also because I took a five week break from cycling over Christmas and a 1 week all-inclusive trip to the Dominican Republic.
Five weeks ago, I started a Ketogenic LCHF diet and started Truclicty again. Over the last five weeks, I have lost another 12 lbs for a total of 35 lbs.
I agree, it’s like flipping a switch and appetite is gone, calorie intake is down and tighter control. The ketogenic diet accomplishes the same end. Put the two together and you have a great combination to drive weight loss, a reduction in insulin resistance, tighter insulin control and ultimately a longer and healthier life.
