Keto Saved My Life
Most people would be embarrassed by the picture on the left. I was too.
That picture was about 5 years old, and serves as a constant reminder of what a dangerous downward spiral I was on when it comes to health.
Mind you, I was not doing anything “wrong” per conventional wisdom. I was eating 5 times a day, eating smaller portions but multiple meals, and I have avoided dietary fat like poison. Also, I ate very little meats because of course, meats will kill you. And I was killing myself at the gym everyday. Yet, I weighed about 100 kilos, and, I looked like this.
A chance encounter with a doctor’s YouTube video got me started on intermittent fasting, and the ketogenic diet. It was not a fad, nor a magical diet, didn’t involve any surgical procedures. The weight loss was relatively swift, about 25 kilos in 18 months, and I was able to build muscle along the way. I never felt hungry, miserable or lethargic. I just feel virile. This new found energy and positive outlook made me a better person, better husband, better father and a better colleague.
Had I not discovered keto and IF I would have become a type-2 diabetic, which is a downward slope of more and more insulin, blood pressure issues and heart issues. You have no idea how grateful I am.
Keto saved my life, and I am pretty sure it can save yours too.
