Keto - have you tired it?

I lost 16 kilo 2 ½ stone in 10 weeks, never feel hungry the whole thing has been very easy to do.

I no longer want to eat the sort of foods I used to, and am very happy with my tweaked keto diet.

As a bonus my blood pressure has gone from 190/95 to a brilliant 118/79 so win double I have a lot more energy and feel great.

I used to get out of breath walking to the end of the garden I now briskly walk 4 miles every day weather permitting.

Keto has completely changed my life. Anyone want more details I would be very happy to give a more in depth account on how I did it.

And no this is not a scam, I'm not selling anything and my story is completely free if anyone is interested.

Lost another 4 kilo (½ stone in the last 9 days and am now at my target weight, so am gradually upping my calorie and carb intake.

This diet has been a stunning success for me, I really cant see how anyone could possible not lose weight quickly on this diet.

I would think being hungry is the main cause of failure on most diets with Keto you should never feel hungry so no problem sticking to it.

It all seemed a little complicated to begin with but after a little thought I worked out some easy tricks and tweaks that made things very simple.

I really am so glad I tried this it has completely changed my life.

I was rushed to hospital thought to have a bad angina attack. I have always eaten the correct things and not a big eater but was obese.

Well after a checks, a camera in the heart and it was found clear, a barrage of tests the answers came. I had sleep apnoea due to being obese and had stopped breathing in my sleep, I was born with an aorta only half the size it should be therefore after stopping breathing the heart started pumping faster and faster to try to get oxygen around the body hence mimicking an angina attack - I was pre diabetic because I am intolerant of carbs. My body stores carbs instead of breaking them down. I was told to go onto a low carb diet for life.

Six months later and 25 kgs lighter I had a new wardrobe as I was size 18 and now size 10. I am still in UK size 10 six years later. When I go out for a meal I ask for just salad and meat or meat and veg no problems. Never been hungry and my bad cholesterol remains low and good high. Have normal sugar readings now so all well. 🙂

I guess I'm naive but I always thought eating more fat was supposed to be bad for you, how does ketosis work.

My understanding of Keto is the body will normally burn sugar/carbs for energy if you cut the carbs the body will burn fat for energy instead but it doesn't end there it also reduces insulin intolerance so lowering the chance of type 2 diabetes and in my case lowered my blood pressure substantially.
Personally I think the advice we have been given for the last 50 years hasn't worked, obesity, heart disease and diabetes have all rocketed since we have been told less fat more carbs.

That is really interesting Cris, perhaps my gran getting to 96 and my Mom being 97 on a more fat based diet is no accident. I hate going to my daughters and having to endure fat free milk. It's just like water. I feel a whole lot better about full fat milk on my cereal now..
