I started my keto journey in October of 2019 after my blood sugars sky rocketed. Looking for help, a friend recommended to look into Dr. Stephen Phinney. Once I watched his videos, the decision was made and I took my first step on my new path to improved health. In the past 4 years I learned a lot about the science behind keto and why it it was the best option for me to improve all my metabolic markers (A1c, weight, blood pressure, liver enzymes, kidney levels). I am now off most meds including insulin and immune suppressants for RA, feeling the best I have felt in decades and enjoying life again. I will never look back.

I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic 15 years ago. My symptoms indicated I had been at the Diabetic level for a few years and at Pre-Diabetic level for years before that. I now understand I was Insulin Resistant at only 20 years of age. I was thin and athletic and didn't start to gain weight until my 30's, shortly after my mom died. May 16, 2020 I started a low carb, high fat, moderate protein way of eating for the last time. I did not start a new diet to lose weight. I started a new way of eating to heal. I eliminated inflammatory foods to heal from the inside out and Reverse Insulin Resistance. May 2020 to March 2021 I've lost 47 pounds. April 2003 to March 2021 I've lost 75 pounds. 57yo, HW 202, SW 174, GW 144, CW 127
