At 260 pounds I was miserable. I was depressed, angry, fatigued/had no energy, I was an out of control diabetic binge eater/sugar addict, had asthma and allergies, sleep apnea, psoriasis, high blood pressure and had a hard time enjoying life.
4 1/2 years later - I've been maintaining a normal healthy weight (I fluctuate), I've only been sick one time, I no longer have any asthma/allergy issues, no more psoriasis breakouts, no more symptoms of diabetes and I maintain a normal non diabetic A1c. I no longer have high blood pressure or sleep apnea. I am medication free. I am no longer depressed and I love my life!
Today I am strong and healthy. I have muscle and I love my curves. Keto gave me the life I've always wanted. Keto - a low carb healthy fat diet of REAL FOOD gave me my health and looks back.
Keto is not a fad. It's not dangerous. It's a natural and healthy way to eat that the human body thrives on. My body loves Keto. I can't help but feel passionate about it and yes, I do get very defensive when people speak ignorantly about it. I'm like the mama bear that defends her cub. There's no disputing my results so while it's not for everybody-it's definitely for me. I don't believe that by the way that it's not for everybody -I believe everybody can benefit from it, but I don't believe everybody has the mental wherewithal to stick to it or to let go of the dogma they believe. I'm not saying that to be mean, but it's a reality. Many people are unwilling to give up their drug of choice and their cognitive dissonance -they don't want to trade it in for better health or smaller pants-it just seems too hard for them. Don't be that person - go for it and claim the life you dream about!! #ketogenicdiet #beforeandafter #weightlosstransformation #ketotransformation #diabetes #type2diabetes #ketolife #beforeafter #transformation #over40andfit #over40andfabulous #keto4life
