I was a college athlete (shot put, discus, hammer on track and field team) and was always in decent shape. When I quit competing there was no need for me to carry around the extra weight.
I switched to a ketogenic diet last March and have lost over 60 pounds. It was difficult at first and keto flu was a BITCH, but now it's something I don't even think about. For me it's been a lifestyle change, which I think is a huge mental barrier I had to overcome. I've successfully lost 15-20 pounds in the past but it never stayed off because I was "dieting," which I viewed as a short term endeavor instead of a longer term project. My success this time around is most definitely attributable to changing the way I think about food and embracing my new lifestyle.
Anyone else gone keto?
living in a ketogenic is pure misery and there are plenty of better ways to keep weight off.
