Please tell us your story:
I’m KD, I started my keto journey as a New Years Resolution to lose my baby weight. At 5’1″, my highest weight was 162lbs and in just 6 months I lost 32lbs!
I was determined to be successful, so I created an Instagram page to keep me accountable and it was the best thing I ever did for myself. Along with this journey, I’ve learned what self-care and self-love exactly is. Keto has changed my life and has been a light at the end of the tunnel!
How has your life changed since going keto?
My cravings are finally under control and I’m not constantly thinking about my next meal.
What did you personally do in your first 10 days of keto?
I was detoxing! I was diving into all the keto podcasts, vlogs, and research I could find to keep me distracted from food.
Do you count and track macros strictly?
The first 2 months I counted macros until I got the hang of it. Keto is a lifestyle for me now, and with a 1-year old, I don’t always have time to track every single thing.
Do you exercise?
If yes, what’s your workout routine like? during my weight loss, I rarely exercised. I’m now incorporating workouts in to start getting leaner!
What is your WHY (your drive/motivation) to keep on track and stay focused?
I want to be active for my daughter, the road I was going down would have led me to obesity and diabetes, something that runs in my family.
What are your favorite keto meals/recipes?
I stick with whole foods mainly, salmon is my favorite mixed in with green veggies cooked in butter. My keto cheats usually consist of fathead keto pizza or pork rind nachos.
Is there any book that you would recommend to our readers?
I love Simply Keto by Suzanne Ryan. She explains Keto very well and to the point. I mainly listen to keto podcasts from, Tracee Gluhaich “Be Well, Be Keto”, Nicole “Keto Transformation”, and Shawn Mynar “The Keto for Women Show” to name a few!
In one or two sentences, why do you think you are successful in this keto way of eating?
I finally stopped listening to my limiting beliefs. I threw all my excuses out the window and finally decided things needed to change.
Finally, What advice would you give someone who is just starting out on keto?
Research! Follow every keto account on Instagram and Facebook. If there are Keto posts in your feed all day you’re more likely to make better decisions.
