Today we are so thrilled to share with you another amazing keto success story from our friend Christie Black. Christie is from Brisbane, Australia. Just like many people, Christie tried many yo-yo diets before but none of them work until she tried Keto. She was skeptical about eating high fat at first, just like many of us, but she gave Keto a try anyway.

Without further ado, here’s Christie’s story:
Please tell us your story:
I’m 25 years old and have always had trouble with my weight. I have been on so many yo-yo diets and never been able to maintain my weight. When I first heard about the keto diet I was skeptical at first, to be honest, but I did so much research and followed so many inspirational people and I decided to give keto a try.
Now I live and breathe keto. I was really unhappy with my weight and hated seeing myself in the mirror or in photos. I have always been very self-conscious and now I am starting to love myself and am forever grateful for starting keto and changing my life. I started keto since 10th June 2017 and here is my 4-month transformation. I haven’t weighed myself once though.
How has your life changed since going keto?
Not only have I lost a considerable amount of weight on keto, there have been so many benefits physically but also mentally I am feeling great and now always feel positive and happy about life.
Do you count and track macros strictly?
I counted my macros at the started however now I never count my macros as I was always under, I only count my calorie intake.
Do you exercise? If yes, what’s your workout routine like?
At the start I didn’t exercise, I now run 3-4 times a week and do a 20 min workout from home.
What is your WHY (your drive/motivation) to keep on track and stay focused?
What keeps me going is I always want to look better then I did yesterday, I want to walk around an feel confident and comfortable in my own skin.
Finally, What advice would you give someone who is just starting out on keto?
My advice to anyone thinking about doing keto is that there are so many support systems out there to help and encourage your journey, give keto a go it will change your life in so many ways!
