My journey towards a healthier life seemed like an impossible task. At 385 lb., I was struggling with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. My health was deteriorating, and I was on five different medications just to keep my conditions under control.
But then, the news of a new baby on the way gave me a newfound sense of determination. I couldn’t keep living like this. I wanted to be there for my child and live life to the fullest.
So, I decided to adopt a near zero carb approach to my lifestyle and re-educate myself on nutrition. I had to confront the lies about nutrition that I had been fed growing up in the ’80s. It was a difficult road, but I refused to give up.
As I began my keto journey, I discovered a lifesaver: Keto Chow. This pint of ice cream a day helped me stay on track and made the journey more enjoyable.
And the results were astounding. I shed over 200 lb. (231 lb.), and I am no longer on any medications. I am now a healthier and happier version of myself, and I owe it all to keto and the support of my loved ones.
