Why the Ketogenic Diet?

I am fundamentally against “dieting” and the “dieting industry” and ALL the things that make women (and men) feel like they are inadequate unless they are slim.

I am currently, still an overweight woman, I have been since the day puberty kicked in and a combination of genes and a high carbohydrate diet kindly gifted me with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and all the horrible weight gain and other symptoms that came with it.

I have spent my life feeling inadequate, and a failure. I have tried every diet under the sun and just ended up fatter and sadder.

My basal metabolism slowed right down, and all the starvation diets and over exercising that I have done over the years has left me bigger than ever, and with a carb loving, fat holding body that just won’t let go.

I have a family history of diabetes in both sides of the family, my cousin died in her forties of a heart attack, and my Grandad didn’t make 60,. Safe to say, the genes are stacked against me.

I am a nurse by trade, and the only thing that really terrifies me is cancer. There is nothing you can do to prevent it, and everything seems to cause it.

Then I Found Keto

The ketogenic diet is an absolute GAME CHANGER. For me, it is not about the weight loss, I know my body is struggling to let go of all the weight it holds, but I have found that keto, even without the hours and hours of exercise I used to have to do to lose even half a pound, I am still losing weight…


Without hunger


I know that I have plenty more to weight lose, but more importantly-

I feel amazing, my insulin resistance is healing and my symptoms are disappearing.

I have lost 20kg (44lb) in the five months between these two photos.

My weight loss has stopped for now, as I have managed to get pregnant!

I will continue to live the keto lifestyle this pregnancy, and the weight loss will continue in the middle of 2019 when this little one arrives.

Keto has cured my hormone imbalance, and pulled my back from the brink of diabetes.

I now have energy and the love for life that I was missing!
