Hi, I’m writing this blog about a subject that I simply have to share because it has been transforming for my wife and I… the Keto Diet.
My wife had not made any plans to start dieting this year, although we both needed to lose weight in that we both have gained over 20 to 25 pounds since retiring back in 2013.
What happened was – at church the couple that sits behind us was sharing with us about how his wife had lost 8 pounds in about 9 to 10 days on the KETO Diet.
Well, needless to say it sparked a conversation about what was is the KETO Diet and how does it work. Without getting into every nook and cranny about the mechanics of how it works in this blog, they basically explained that the KETO Diet puts your body into ketosis. Below is a brief description and a FREE Guide to get started:
Brief Description of What Is A Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet which puts the body into a metabolic state known as ketosis.
When your body is in a state of ketosis, the liver produced ketones which become the main energy source for the body.
The ketogenic diet is also referred to as keto (key-toe) diet, low carb diet, and low carb high fat (LCHF).
So why is it so awesome and why is it taking the world by storm?
Because it completely reverses how your body functions (in a good way) along with changing how you view nutrition.
It’s based around the premise that your body was designed to run more efficiently as a fat burner than a sugar burn.
My wife and I were so inspired and impressed by our friend’s quick results in weight loss and their explaining the simplicity of what you could and could not eat – in that it would not severely alter the way we eat and enjoy food the we normally eat anyway.
Well, to make a long story short – we purchased a few suggested starter food items and prepared our meals as suggested and to our GREAT AND AMAZING SURPRISE within 8 days my wife lost 9 pounds and I lost 11 pounds.
That was 4 months ago and since then we’ve both lost over 20 pounds and several inches in our waist, hips, and neck – (a complete makeover). This is really exciting stuff having friends and family commenting on how good we look – and the obvious loss in weight is directly attributable to that. In fact, we constantly seat at the table and are amazed – “just how good we are eating”. Quite often, we look at each other and say, “I can’t believe we’re eating this good on a diet”.
We are now hearing all over our church of other people that have either seen my wife and I or heard from someone else about what the KETO diet has done for us – and they have gotten on it and are getting similar results.
I could so much more but as I promised, I didn’t want to make this a long blog but I just had to share this to my friends, family and followers of this blog.
So, I hope this will help someone and encourage you if you needed just that little nudge to get started on losing a few pounds this year.
