In September 2017 I weighed 242 pounds, and I was very unhealthy, depressed, and emotionally miserable. I had tried and failed to lose weight many times — every attempt left me hungry and exhausted, so I always gave up. I stumbled across the ketogenic diet and decided that I could either stay miserable or give it a try and even if it failed I was already as unhappy as I could possibly be.
To my absolute surprise, keto changed my life in every way possible. It was sustainable, energizing, and surprisingly simple to implement into my life. I drastically changed my eating habits and started exercise along with keto. I lost 80 pounds on keto by December 2018. My chronic depression was gone. My insomnia was gone. I felt strong for the first time in my life, both physically and mentally.
Keto has given me mental clarity and stability no medication was ever able to in my treatment for depression. It’s given me the energy I’ve desired for so long and it’s given me hope. I now have hope that I can continue on my journey to health, hope that I can accomplish my goals in every aspect of my life. Keto gave me a chance to live a life that I didn’t think was possible!
1. What tactics did you employ to help you get to your goal? What did you find helped you get to your goals best?
Eating keto, drinking more water, exercising a few times a week, and tracking my food were the four big changes I made to my life when I got started. Tracking my food became a habit that helped me ensure I was on track to meet my goals. The exercise was empowering and made me feel stronger over time.
But the keto diet was the most helpful thing of all for me. It gave me the stamina I needed for spending more time in the kitchen cooking, the energy I needed to get through workouts, and it helped boost my mood to keep me motivated and hopeful about transforming myself inside and out.
2. What is the most impactful change you’ve made to your diet and why do you feel it’s been the most important?
Cutting out addictive junk foods and sugary foods were so important for me because they create a cycle of continuous cravings that cause me to continue to crave and eat them. They leave me feeling tired and sluggish and just aren’t worth the momentary satisfaction that taste could bring me. Keeping my insulin levels even has kept my energy higher and mood more stable.
3. What is the best single piece of advice you can give to someone that is just starting out?
Get started now, rather than later, and stick with it, even if it feels overwhelming and difficult to get started. You are absolutely worth every effort it will take and the rewards are beyond what you can imagine!
