Cindy's Success Story

I've been overweight my entire adult life. Once I started nearing 50, after many "diets", I was ready to give up. Then I remembered that a few years back, I had started a low-carb lifestyle.

I did lose about 15 pounds and felt better, but I eventually went back to my old ways and packed those 15 pounds right back on. I was unhappy and felt terrible every day. I didn't have any other health issues but was resigned to the fact that I'd be overweight for the rest of my life.

In May of this year (2017) I finally decided to do something about it once and for all. On May 7th, 2017 I started eating low-carb again. I loved it! I was never hungry and I was starting to feel better. After much research I decided to go even lower-carb and found Keto! I couldn't be happier.

5 Keto Success Stories - 60-Day KetoDiet Challenge

Why Did You Join?

Weight Loss and an overall healthy lifestyle. I love a challenge and this one holds me accountable.

What Helped You Stay on Track?

Tracking and determination... not necessarily in that order. I've learned that one slip or even a few does not negate everything that I've accomplished to this point. If I fall off, I get right back on!

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

I feel better today than I did at the start. And I know the longer I continue, the better I'll feel everyday.

Sid's Success Story

I am a 67 year old former runner. A cancer survivor and a lifetime Weight watcher/yo yo dieter who found this site last month and I think this might just be the inspiration I need. I've been trying to follow ketodietapp's suggestions for the last four weeks. I started at 200 pounds.

5 Keto Success Stories - 60-Day KetoDiet Challenge

Why Did You Join?

Weight loss. Prevent the return of illness. Today at the start of the challenge I'm at 195 pounds and would like to get back to my pre-cancer healthy weight of 175 pounds.

What Helped You Stay on Track?

I kept going back to read the blog and I are use the support group online a lot. The ketodiet app was an eye opener from me. I've been a mfp user for two years but now that I've found keto I've added the mfp workaround to count net calories but I used both through the entire challenge. I'm hooked.

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

The challenge gave me a goal a focus and it help me stay on track I've already signed up for the challenge that starts in three days because I really feel like it meets my needs. Health wise I'm more concerned about fat around my stomach hernia from the previous surgery and I don't want to undergo another surgery I am looking at the ketodietapp website and app to help remove the fat around the stomach and I'm feeling so much healthier because of it.

What Are Your Favourite KetoDiet Recipes?

I especially like the guacamole and the pita bread. Also made a lot of the bullet proof coffee.

How Can We Improve?

I loved every minute of it. I am testing the new app, love the ability to scan my store bought products or ingredients in and add new recipes everything is working so smoothly I'm very happy.

Shijuana's Success Story

I am a 34 year old mother of 3 little people. I work full time, and lately have been struggling to to control my eating habits. Despite working out quite often (and enjoying it), I tend to turn to food for comfort and just out of boredom, which has caused me to almost binge at times.

I have never had a problem with this in the past, but my husband is currently in residency with one more year, and even though I don't really feel stressed out often, I think I tend to overeat at night because he's not home quite often, and it just makes me feel better in the moment. I know that I have to get a handle on my eating habits, especially because diabetes and heart disease is on both sides of my family, and because I need to be healthy in order to keep up with my little ones!

Since having my middle child, I have also struggled with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and arthritis in my hands, and have had several rounds of injections along with surgery on one hand. I have tried keto on and off since the beginning of this year, and noticed that everything feels so much better, and I just feel lighter, but then I go back to my old eating habits. I don't want that this time around!

5 Keto Success Stories - 60-Day KetoDiet Challenge

Why Did You Join?

I joined this challenge for so many reasons:

  1. Due to genetics, I am predisposed to heart disease and diabetes, but I enjoy my husband and children way to much to be set back by an illness if I can help it. I have read so many life changing results from people who adhere to a ketogenic diet, and I would like to give myself every opportunity possible to have a happy and healthy life.

  2. My relationship with food has taken a turn for the worse lately, and I know it can and should be better. I feel terrible when I have a large amount of carbs, but it's so hard to ignore the cravings. In the past when I have tried keto, I realize that the cravings eventually subside, and then sweets taste almost too sweet if I do have something. For the work and effort that I put in at the gym, I should definitely see changes in my body, but that is impossible because every weekend I get setback my making terrible food choices. This has to change!

  3. I not only want to be healthy, but I want to feel the benefits as well. I can always tell when I haven't been eating well because my joints are stiff and painful, but when I adhere to a good diet and make healthy food choices, I am pretty much pain free. I want to feel this way 100% of the time! Joining this challenge will hold me accountable for the choices I make, as well as help me to track my weight and progress. I really look forward to seeing the end results, AND continuing to make healthy food choices once it's over.

  4. My honeymoon is in October... need I say more?! My husband and I got married while he was in medical school, and started working on our family shortly after, so we never got a chance to go on a honeymoon. We finally are this year, and I keep telling him that I will have my beach body ready! That should be enough motivation for me!

What Helped You Stay on Track?

Knowing how much better I would feel, and also that fact that I want to be healthier overall. Imagining wearing a bikini on the beach didn't hurt either!

How Has KetoDiet Helped?

This challenge has helped me to better manage my cravings for sugary foods, given me motivation to get to the gym even when I don't necessarily feel like it, and has allowed me to challenge myself.

Although I did weight myself, I didn't pay too much attention to the numbers because I wanted to focus on building more muscle and getting stronger as well, which makes me feel awesome!

Now my 12 year old son tries to keep up with me at the gym, and his friends are always impressed when they see me working out. Also, he'll be 13 soon, so I want to make sure he know that I'm always the boss!

What Are Your Favourite KetoDiet Recipes?

The BBQ roasted almonds, salmon patties, quiche, jerk chicken, and ham and cheese pockets were some of my favorites!

How Can We Improve?

I think it's great opportunity! The KetoDiet Challenge forum, FB community, app, and website are awesome tools, and it's nice to go through this with other people who have similar and very different goals!

April's Success Story

I have been following a Ketogenic diet since June 1st. I have lost 26 lbs since starting this WOE. I love Keto and how easy it is to follow and how my body reacts to this WOE. I have PCOS, and have an insulin resistant. I have been trying to go to the gym for the last month but have a hard tome actually getting there. That is a big goal of mine, is to go to the gym for a month and not miss any days!

I have hit my first goal of hitting the 200's and no longer being in the 300 lb range. I am more cautious of what I am putting in my body. I also go to the gym more often then I have ever gone in my entire life. I have found a new love for working out, and have tried new classes, and new workouts.

Your low-carb Chocolate hazelnut spread... it's amazzzing. And it makes not being able to have Nutella much easier. Also the Keto bounty bars were super yummy. I have a serious sweet tooth, so anything sweet I'm all over that!
