Have you tried every diet out there and nothing worked?
I have. Over my last 30 years I think I have been on every diet there is. They all worked for a little bit, but soon after the “DIET” was over, I would go right back to eating the foods that I had stopped eating while on the “DIET” and gained all if not more of my weight back.
Two years ago, I started on a Ketogenic Lifestyle – the Keto Diet and a Ketone Supplement. I decided I had to make this a lifestyle I could live with instead of a “DIET”. I was tired of the yo-yo dieting and not being able to maintain. I love to travel and especially to go see my parents and my daughter and granddaughter, so I had to do something to get my health aligned. I didn’t want to get old!
I started down the path to health and happiness and consistency. I lost 27 lbs of fat and 23 inches overall during the course of 3 months. I regained the flexibility in my knees so that my joints no longer hurt. My mental clarity is back to normal – the brain fog has cleared. My energy level is that of a 30 year old instead of a 60 year old. And I sleep like a baby at night. No longer do I have to take sleeping pills to get a good nights rest. I have maintained my weight – give or take 2-3 lbs for the last 3 years.
Even if I were to go completely back to eating high carbs for a week or a couple of weeks while on vacation, everything I have learned now about a low carb keto lifestyle means that I only have to eliminate the carbs and I automatically go back to my maintained weight.
This blog is here to document stories like mine, educate you on a low carb keto lifestyle and share recipes so that you, too, can have a “LIFESTYLE” instead of a “DIET”.
