28. I started the Keto diet about 2 months ago, and one thing I noticed after about a week or two is

that all my pain went away (which I just assumed was arthritic joints and was a result of getting older), however my knee pain, low back pain, shoulder, neck and upper back pain, tension headaches and constant stomach aches just went away completely!

The things I cut out entirely were processed carbs (bread, pizza, crackers, baked goods), sweets and diet soda. I never really ate a lot of processed things (except for the above mentioned) mostly whole foods - veggies, meat, dairy, etc. but it seemed by eliminating those things, almost all of my inflammation went away, and therefore the pain. I was pleasantly shocked.

I never let it stop me from getting around, but it was just really eye opening as to how much what we eat affects how we feel. I have slacked off a little lately and bought a loaf of ciabatta bread at Whole Foods the other day (not too processed) with some cheese and olive tapenade, but the next day I had a terrible stomach-ache, low back pain and knee pain. I may keep to this diet just because of the way I feel by cutting out processed carbs.
