On the left I'm 42 years old and I had been on keto for about a month already. Granted I have on no make up in that photo on the left, but I feel like I looked older than 42 and although I'd started to feel better already, I definitely felt older than 42.
The picture on the right was taken last week at age 46 and I do have make up on in that picture, but I don't use any filters/app tricks etc.-I don't even know how, but I do know that I look best in natural light which is why am fond of taking selfies outside or in my car. Haha
My point here is that just one of the many benefits that living a ketogenic lifestyle yields is that we feel younger and we look younger. So maybe people are just being nice, but I am regularly told that I don't look old enough to have a nearly 27-year-old son. No one used to say that to me prior to Keto when they found out I had a son in his 20s.
What are some of the other benefits to living a ketogenic lifestyle? My hair is better and grows faster, my skin is better-it looks healthier and is not dry or ashy anymore. The psoriasis I used to have on my abdomen and occasionally on my elbows and my scalp are almost nonexistent now. I have nothing on the skin on my body but I still have some very minor psoriasis on my scalp. I'm not sure if it'll ever 100% go away but I don't even feel like I'm dealing with anything that's a nuisance. It may as well be dandruff. lol
Weight loss of course. My metabolic function has improved-if I walked into a doctors office today in my current condition no one would diagnose me with type two diabetes the way they did in 2008. I no longer have high blood pressure. No longer have high cholesterol. All of that is normal and I am on no medications anymore. I no longer have sleep apnea nor do I snore-it's a nice feeling going to bed knowing I'm going to get a good night sleep.
Bottom line, keto will improve your health and your vanity. ￼
So, don't listen to naysayers and all the people out there right now trying to warn people against Keto. (Continued in comments)
