Welcome to KetoVale.com! We are keto enthusiasts. We are very passionate about the ketogenic diet and living a happy, healthy and inspiring life. We believe each and every one of us has the power to transform our body and health and create the quality of life that we desire and deserve. We are in charge of our own lives.

Everything we do is devoted to inspiring people to transform their lives by changing the way they eat and how they feel through the keto way of life. We are not just ‘another keto blog’ or ‘food blog’, we are in the inspirational and transformational business.

Many people have contacted us and told us that they’ve tried every diet out there but nothing worked until they tried the keto diet. We want to inspire people to achieve their weight loss and health goals. From there, they will have more confidence and self-love to go out and start achieving their other goals in life and helping other people to do the same.

We started out as a small group of keto dieters where we shared and discussed a lot of diet tips and recipes. We supported and encouraged our members daily. The group started growing very fast and we began to receive many success stories of people who follow this diet.

Each and every story we feature on our website is authentic and inspirational. These stories remind people of what is possible, that no matter where you are in your life right now, you are 100% in control and you can change your life the way you want it to be simply by start making better decisions and fully commit to it. We are here to help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

We know the ketogenic way of eating continuously changes the lives of many people all around the world from all walks of life. We love the Keto Diet so much so we created this website to share what we have learned to help and inspire others to transform their body and health and change their lives.

About our content: most of our content is leaning towards a strict keto diet instead of a lazy/dirty keto or IIFYM approach (see the difference here).

However, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution and we don’t expect you to follow our tips, advice, and recipes exactly. Depending on your level of strictness, your personal preference and circumstance, you’re welcome to personalize our content to make it work for you.

​Keto Coach

Sevi Rutgrink is a keto coach based in the Netherlands. After leading what she thought was a very healthy life, she fell ill in 2013 and was diagnosed with IBS, Leaky Gut syndrome, and Raynaud’s syndrome. She began to look into a better lifestyle in terms of healthy diet, stress relief and sleep management.

Having tried the Paleo diet, low FODMAP diet and Primal diet, all with relative success, she started researching and finally, she discovered the ketogenic lifestyle and successfully followed this way of eating through healthy whole foods. Since then, she has been 100% symptom-free.

Following her own success, Sevi became very passionate about helping others achieve optimal health. She did a lot of training and work within several keto communities, including our KetoVale.com, and started her own practice.

In October 2018 she finished her LCHF/Ketogenic Nutrition & Treatment professional training offered by the Nutrition Network - an educational platform founded by the Noakes Foundation. Sevi is also listed with Low Carb USA and foodmed.net.

As a keto coach Sevi wants to share her expertise, knowledge, and experience with you. She understands that the transition to a LCHF/ketogenic lifestyle can be very difficult at first. Emotional and practical support are very crucial, especially in the first three months. So if you find yourself hindered by practicalities, lack of emotional support or you simply feel overwhelmed in online communities one-on-one coaching with Sevi may be just the thing for you. You can contact her at [email protected] for her coaching service.
