    +1 on the taste. When I first started, I thought all the people who thought sweets taste too sweet was deluding themselves. Now I've found that it's true. I think it's because I'm so filled up on real food. I can actually take a bite of a candy bar and throw out the other half.

    Agreeing with stuff tastes sweeter. Barely hitting week two and it seems like my taste buds are resetting or something.

    Also noticed that the dark skin (prediabetic since I was 12) on the back of my neck/between the boobies is getting softer and lighter. Which is freaking incredible. My mom use to scrub my neck raw when I was kid, trying to get it to go away. Can't wait for my keratosis pilaris on my upper arms to vanish - read through this thread and a couple people seem to have that side effect!

    +n to the many previous examples I've also experienced, but the title says "weird", and so beat this:

    My place has a very small bathtub with a reclined back. Every now & then I like a nice bath, but truth is I used to snug up pretty good against the back, to the point where - if I wasn't careful - my backfat would squidge the water out when I sat back, forming a seal and essentially suction-cupping me to the tub! I swear it's true, and once or twice I had a fleeting panic attack that I might not be able to break free, and the firemen would find my corpse there.

    I still have to be careful, but now it's just so I don't bruise my spine.

    ALSO WEIRD is that I've had major heartburn for the past year (went from taking pepcid one every other night, to taking prescribed prevacid twice daily). Doctors recommended that I stop eating fatty foods. I've had 200g of fat each day the past three days and my heartburn is slowly going away.

    Same, I fixed my lifelong acid reflux but doing the exact opposite of what my doc told me to do. High-fat, low-carb got me off PPIs

    I can cross my legs easily now. Not being able to do so before was something that made me feel monstruously big.

    My ears have totally stopped ringing!
    I read somewhere that this is from all of the caffeine consumed. As soon as I put down the pop, the ringing in my ears went away too! Amazing!

    I've noticed that my sense of smell has increased! I'm starting to smell ingredients that I never noticed before.

    I have a couple of those dark skin patches around my underarms and they've significantly improved for me as well! I've always had shitty skin so I never thought much of them, but after doing some research, they're apparently a huge indicator of insulin resistance and thyroid issues. Not good... glad to see that they're going away.

    That hyperpigmentation you describe is a marker of (and caused by) insulin resistance. The condition is known as Acanthosis Nigricans. It will improve as your insulin resistance improves.
