    Hi Everyone - I am new to Keto, and REALLY excited about changing my eating style (and bad habits!) - but I am not gonna lie, I am a bit *scared* about going from a low fat diet (pounded into my head for years!) and switching up to a High Fat one. But after all the research and reading (and seeing amazing success stories) I am ready to JUST DO IT!

    Thanks in advance for any info - and if anyone would like to add me, I would love some motivated friends!!! ~Kathy
