Keto Diet Success Stories
Check Out Our Favorites!
It’s obviously no secret that I’m a big fan of the ketogenic diet. If I hadn’t stumbled upon it 5 years ago, I’m pretty certain that my borderline obesity and diabetes would be slowly killing me by now.
My best friend was the fridge, and the elevator to my second-floor apartment was my second best friend. Needless to say, things drastically changed for me. The low-carb diet lifestyle along with intermittent fasting and exercise triggered a fast weight loss.
Yes, I struggled with cooking recipes from new and strict meal plans, but within 12 months my doctors had removed every single health warning. No obesity or diabetes, no sky-high blood pressure or swollen joints.
But my story alone isn’t exactly what will help convince you to take the same actions. So a few weeks ago I sent an email out to the mailing list titled “Share Your Story,” and the responses have been extremely positive.
As promised, the first 10 people will be featured in this post to help encourage others.

For years I was eating myself into an early grave. When I was told that I was only months away from serious heart health issues I somehow had a wakeup call.
By sticking to a keto diet plan, and with the support of some fellow keto friends I’ve managed to lose enough pounds in the last 8 months to no longer be classified morbidly obese.

Type 2 diabetes runs in my family, and I knew it would be only a matter of time before my fast foods and sugar addiction would bring me to that exact point.
However, it was a mild heart attack at 45 that opened my eyes. I know I had to lose weight, and the keto diet just seemed to make sense.
Once I got started, I couldn’t stop, and 2 and half years later I’ve managed to complete my first marathon!

My corporate finance sector job in the city was killing me slowly. 80 hour work weeks plus 10 hours of commuting just didn’t leave room for health-conscious eating and exercise.
That was until I discovered the keto diet.
I still don’t have much time for exercise, but the increased brain energy from really simple keto recipes has made me more effective at work.
As a result I’m working less and getting more done, all thanks to the keto diet.

I found my way to the keto diet while looking for some natural solutions to my mental health issues. Anxiety was crippling me, and while medication was helping, I wanted to avoid becoming dependent.
When a dietician recommended I try the keto diet, I was intrigued. But I never would have imagined such an improvement. Days of anxiety are now a rare occasion.

My first adventure with the keto diet started just 2 months ago. Diabetes and heart bypass surgery forced me to think about things in a different way. It really was just a matter of time.
So, on one Sunday morning, I cleared out my pantry of all the crap foods and went grocery shopping for my first keto meal. I’ve stuck with it, and the pounds are slowly dropping.
from Richmond, VA
The keto diet has completely blown me away. I probably spent about 10 years on Weight Watchers with only 5 lost pounds to show for it.
1 year after I started the keto diet and I’ve lost 16 pounds, and my health has never been better.
I’m now starting the odd fasting days to see if I can get rid of some extra pounds.
If you’re in two minds about this keto diet business, just give it a try. It’s a hell of a lot more fun when it comes to keto-friendly foods.
I witnessed the keto diet before and after effects first hand when my husband started his battle against diabetes a year ago.
After I saw the results, I was afraid I’d miss all my favorite foods, but when I started eating my husband's keto diet snacks, I knew I could do it too.
All I can say is the keto diet has helped us lose countless pounds and made us healthier and more active.
from Austin, TX
I started keto 3 years ago and have been going through periods of ketosis.
It’s mainly in the winter that I switch to the keto diet and intermittent fasting, and this is working really well for keeping my weight level.
