Please tell us your story:
I first found out about the ketogenic diet through a video on YouTube. There was a video of how a woman lost 100 pounds in a year. I thought it was too good to be true, so I researched the keto diet. On May 2nd of this year, I started the ketogenic diet with a starting weight of 251.6. I am now 194.8 as of October 2nd. That’s 56.8 lbs loss in just 5 short months.
How has your life changed since going keto?
I feel a lot more energized, I am not ashamed of myself in public. In general, I am a lot more happy.
What did you personally do in your first 10 days of keto?
I kept my meals pretty simple, and kept track of all my macros.
Do you count and track your macros strictly?
I did at first but now I do not.
Do you exercise? If yes, what’s your workout routine like?
I don’t exercise, but I am a nurse assistant in a hospital and a mother of two toddlers so I stay active.
Have you ever encountered a plateau? If so, how did you get over it?
I got over my plateaus with a fast.
What is your WHY (your drive/motivation) to keep on track and stay focused?
My best motivation is my kids, husband, family and friends. I don’t want to let them down and I want to live a healthy life with them.
What are your favorite keto meals? or What does your meal plan look like?
My favorite recipe are the egg and cream cheese waffles.
Finally, What advice would you give someone who is just starting out on keto?
Stay patient and focused.
