I started to lose hope that I would ever shed the extra weight I had gained after having six children. Hitting menopause made it even harder. Struggling with enormous personal stress and job issues my liver enzymes were up, I was pre diabetic, and my cholesterol was at an all time level of 8.4!!
I met Rachael though my daughter and went along the first time feeling a little sceptical about everything. Everything else had failed, right?
Rachael was a great encouragement right from the get go. Due to a few body and health issues we decided going Keto (Ketogenic Diet) was the best for me. So mid January 2017 in the middle of the week, (don't wait till Monday to start!!) I weighed 86kgs. A few days in and I got that low carb flu which I had been warned about but I didn't let that deter me.
6 weeks in I feel amazing!! I never feel hungry. The cravings for sweet things disappears very quickly. I have lost 9kgs AND my cholesterol has gone down to 6.8 in just 6 weeks.
If you have been sitting on the fence about trying low carb high fat way of eating, then I encourage you to give it a go. You will not regret it and you have everything to gain.
On a side note........my husband decided to do this alongside me and he has lost 10kgs in 6 weeks. He cannot believe the changes he feels in his overall health.
