5 KetoDiet Challenge Success Stories

With the 60 day summer KetoDiet challenge coming to an end in less than 2 weeks, I'd like to share 5 inspiring success stories of those who participated in our previous 60 Day May-June KetoDiet Challenge and won prizes worth over $2,000!

I usually share all success stories within 2-3 weeks of announcing the winners but this time it took longer than expected. It has been a challenging couple of months for us: from releasing the fully featured Android App and providing an upgrade path to all who have already purchased KetoDiet Basic for Android, to working on a new barcode scanning feature and enhancing the existing planning & tracking features. And that's not all - I've been working on a new cookbook too!

All 5 participants took part in our challenge together with thousands of others - and I have to admit it wasn't easy to pick just 5 winners. I'm so proud for everyone who took part!

To take part in our Challenges, sign up and get notified as soon as the next challenge is announced. All KetoDiet Challenges are and will always be FREE and you won't need to buy any products to join.

Karen's Success Story

I turned 54 during this Challenge. Keto and this website have been the best birthday present evah!! Having struggled with my weight since high school and finally topping out over 310 pounds 40 years later, my health and happiness were screaming at me... demanding that I make a change or else face Type 2 diabetes and heart disease or worse.

All of those scared me :( But the thought of the Medical complex "managing my diseases" rather then helping me find a solution to my weight (so I could cure/avoid diabetes & heart disease) scared me even more. So for almost two years now, I've struggled with finding my own solution/cure to my weight.

Last year, I found Paleo which helped me really "clean" up my food choices but my weight still yo-yo'd between 295-310 pounds. As most know, losing and then gaining the weight back is so depressing, so very depressing... debilitating... soul-sucking (and I like my soul healthy and intact, thank you very much!) Then as I was searching for new recipes, I found keto and the KetoDietApp!! WOO!! WOO!! And my life has really changed.

Why Did You Join?

I was a day late to join this challenge. I almost didn't do it but I did the challenge anyway. I told myself that I was going to Secret-Squirrel-Ninja the challenge! This way there was no pressure to shed my weight and I wouldn't be disappointed if nothing happened.

I'll admit it, I was scared that Keto wouldn't work either. I'm happy that I did do it because I went from 310.4 pounds down to 275.4 pounds without starving, just eating amazing keto recipes that I found on the website, and without having to exercise like an aerobic-fiend (which is very difficult at that weight).

I just did gentle no-stress walking and guess what? That's right! No more depression and my soul is now firmly intact and very happy BOOYAH! :) Needless to say after doing the first challenge, there was nothing and I mean nothing that was going to keep me from doing this Challenge. I was all-in and never looked back. I'm a new woman and so excited and geeked to be able to continue my journey with this next challenge. I just love the support and accountability and visual reward that comes with the KetoDietApp does a very happy dance.

What Helped You Stay on Track?

Definitely the recipes and meal prep tips. One of the hardest and yet easiest tips was the concept of meal planning. Initially I thought that taking 3 hours on a Sunday to cook food and then put the food into daily containers would be overwhelming and exhausting.

But I found that it's actually so much easier to cook like that. And I really enjoyed coming home from work during the week and savoring food that was already ready for me and all I had to do was heat it up and eat it. No more struggling after an exhausting 14 hour work day to try to decide what to eat and then take another hour to cook it.

Also the recipes are amazing. I found that after a while I was more and more comfortable with changing them up to suit me and my tastes. I actually look forward to trying new recipes and experimenting and my family gives me compliments on my cooking!

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

One of the things I absolutely love and adore about the Ketodietapp is the charts!! I've taken weekly pictures (front and side), but it took awhile before I could "see" any change in my body's shape.

Although during that time, my clothes were saying "HEY! Where are you going? We are falling off you now!!". Having your clothes tell you that creates a feeling beyond wonderful! Nothing like putting on clothes that were previously way too tight for me to comfortably wear and now? Now finding they are falling off me and I'm having to buy new ones. Fortunately, the charts allowed me to see visually the inches coming off the parts of my body.

Of course my clothes were saying... "see, we told you that already" :) and that is just awe-inspiring. Oh yea! Oh yea! :) Every week I faithfully measured my wiggly parts and every week I was flabbergasted at the fact that over the past 60 days, I have shed an average of 1.75 inches off my body weekly!

It's definitely interesting to see the fat area that my body decided to eat each week. It's funny because when I started back in February, I was more about "what does the scale say" and now I'm all about "holy crap, I shed another half inch around my waist!" I am extremely happy to share that over the past 60 days of this Challenge I have shed an amazing 15.5 inches: 4" off my waist; 4.5" off my hips; 2.5" off my thighs; 3.5" off my chest and 1" off my arms! /does a very very happy dance.

What Are Your Favourite KetoDiet Recipes?

Oooooo I think they're all my favorites BUT if I absolutely have to choose a favorite, I'm going to narrow it down to FAT BOMBS!!

What a perfect name to describe an absolutely amazing food. Simple ingredients, insanely easy to prepare, fully satisfying and a definite treat to eat... not to mention a staggering array of flavors from sweet to savory. Even my boyfriend LOVES them so much that I have to make twice the batches just so I have some :-)

Michael's Success Story

55 years old. Hit 276 lbs in February on my birthday... heaviest ever in my life. Tried eating less but wasn't working, because I was still eating the wrong foods. I was addicted to cookies, pizza, cheese cake and bread. Then I found ketodieapp.com and got motivated and started seeing real results almost immediately. I was familiar with Atkins and knew the basic science, but not to the extent I learned here. I want to loose at least 80 lbs and change my eating habits for life! By the time I got the courage to try this challenge I had already loss 20lbs thanks to ketodietapp.

I heard the saying use diet as a noun not a verb. That really struck me and that is where I'm at in my life. This is what I eat and how I live, not some fad diet to loose weight then put it back on. It's interesting how many people don't understand it. Oh go ahead and eat that pasta or ice cream... it won't kill you. What's one cheat day. That's what you hear so often, they don't understand that I don't want too and I don't miss it. I take my kids out for ice cream and I have a coffee, doesn't bother me and I'm happy. So I decided to give this challenge a go, for motivation and encouragement.

All the support from my family, especially from my stepson, who meal prepped all the recipes for me since I suck at cooking and he is studying nutrition as well so why not. So one can say that I was his sample rat for his thesis.

Weight loss and healthier life.

What Helped You Stay on Track?

Knowing Keto was literally transforming my life was enough to keep me on track.

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

My health had taken a nosedive several years ago. Feeling lethargic, joints aching and reaching for more carbs to give me energy destroyed my body further.

I gained over 50 lbs in about 5 months and kept gaining since I found the Keto diet. Going Keto in April, 2017 has increased my energy, given me a better mood and my joints do NOT ache anymore. Of course the fat melting before my eyes has been amazing, too!

In April I was 230. I saw the Keto Challenge as a way to stick with it even during the hard times. I'm down to 184 and only have 30 more until my goal. I will be doing the Keto Challenge again to reach my final weight goal. Thank you for developing this Challenge!

Brittany's Success Story

I'm 20 almost 21, I've been struggling with my weight since the age of eight, I've tried all sorts of diet plans and I couldn't find one I would stick to. And each time a plan didn't work for me I'd quit and lose just a bit more confidence in my self. I started the Keto Way of Eating just a month ago and since then I've seen a huge change in my appetite, how I think about food and even my confidence has taken on a boost!

The first few weeks I didn't even weigh myself! I was terrified of what I would see! Could the scale say error? I was already afraid of what the number would be. After two weeks I weighed in. I wasn't surprised by the number but that didn't change the fact that it still hurt to admit I'd lost all control over my health. In the two weeks that followed I lost my first seven pounds and honestly I can't wait to see what this challenge will do in helping me along in my journey! I don't want it to be about numbers but about improving my quality of life! I'm slowly building my confidence and I keep telling myself I Can Do This! Ps: I currently work the night shift at a wafer fab, go to school part time and my passion is for photography.

Why Did You Join?

Get healthy! I don't want to be limited by my weight I want to be able to enjoy life! I'd like to feel comfortable in cloths and not feel ugly for the cloths I can wear. I want to gain confidence! And lower my risks for illnesses related to poor health choices. Like type 2 diabetes and heart attack. I want to take control of my health instead of feeling like I have no control.

What Helped You Stay on Track?

What helped me stay on track (though there were set backs towards the end ) was both my family, friends, coworkers and my keto blogs I follow. There continued support helps me to keep going even though I've hit a wall recently.

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

I'm so happy to say because of this challenge I'm seeing a few inches here and their coming off cloths that were tight are becoming comfortable and I'm gaining more confidence in myself.
