I Could Barely Walk First Thing In The Morning

I Could Barely Walk First Thing In The Morning

I used to body build in my early twenties, but when I stopped I gained a tremendous amount of weight due to poor diet and inactivity. For years I was just gaining until I got to a astounding 257 for my 5'8" tall body, which was grossly overweight. After four years I began Brazilian jiu-jitsu (8 years ago), and changed my diet and immediately lost weight. Once my body settled into activity again, the poor diet messed me up once more and for the past 7.5 yrs, I was an accordion of weight loss and ...

I can keep up with my kids, all day!

I can keep up with my kids, all day!

I am a wife and mother to six wonderful kiddos. Two of this kids I gave birth to in my thirties. I have always been told I "carry my weight well" but after the two babies, I was bigger than I'd ever been. I spent three years trying different diets and weight loss supplements. I even sold plexus for a while but only lost around 20lbs using it. I was eating what I thought was healthy, fruit smoothies and low fat food, but I kept getting bigger and more depressed. I started keto in Jan 16 2017 ...

Just Go for It and See How You Feel

Hi Craig! I waited to write and reply to this email until I had done my second month of weigh-ins, measurements, and pictures!

I Don’t See This as a Diet Anymore, I See It as a Lifestyle

I Don’t See This as a Diet Anymore, I See It as a Lifestyle

Hey Craig, In just 4 months I have lost 35 lbs. I was amazed that in just the first week I had lost 5, and felt better than I had for years. Last year I was diagnosed with toxic black mold syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome as a secondary diagnosis. Due to these problems I have odd neurological symptoms and moderate anxiety. Drugs don't help my anxiety. Since I began this diet my anxiety has lessened a ton. My general neurological symptoms such as difficult word recall, twitching, and ...

I’ve gone from a 22 to a 12

Hi Craig, I'm Michelle and I've been doing keto full-time since March 1, 2015. With the help of The Keto Academy and all of your amazing recipes, I've been able to lose—so far, and as of this morning!—55.8 POUNDS. I'm not yet where I want to be, but the keto diet has done for me what no other diet (fad or otherwise) has. You see, I've always been on the heavy side. It wasn't until my health really started to decline and I was put on steroids that my weight really bloated up. It got to ...

I am confident that Keto will help me do it

I would like to share my keto weight loss story. Attached are my before and after photos. (Before in pink, after in black). I started my keto lifestyle last year September 2014 and it helped me lose 40 pounds in 4 months. I went from 243lbs to 203 lbs. Granted, I wasn't super strict doing keto at this time, but it still helped me lose a significant amount of weight and I have kept it off. Currently, I am back on keto and this time I am being strict with it. (no cheat days). I have about 60-70 ...

I Am Half the Person That I Used to Be and Will Never, Ever Go Back

I Am Half the Person That I Used to Be and Will Never, Ever Go Back

I started the ketogenic diet using ruled.me because of the wonderful help I received. Craig gave us detailed info on why it works and how to do change our habits and recipes step-by-step. I followed the diet exactly and started to lose about 4 pounds a week. I hit a plateau at 20 pounds, and emailed Craig. He was very kind to answer my email himself with specific advice. I started losing a little slower this time, but consistently until I reached a loss of 40 pounds. I am half the person ...

I Was Scared of Dropping Dead of a Heart Attack at Any Moment

I Was Scared of Dropping Dead of a Heart Attack at Any Moment

The High School Football Player I have struggled with my eating habits for most of my life. My problem was that early on, I didn’t really realize that my habits were bad. I played sports while growing up and transitioned to strictly football throughout my high school and college days. I was an offensive lineman, you know, one of the guys that carry the nickname of the “fat boys” or the “hogs”. I didn’t think much about it at the time and it was paying for school so I didn’t care. Things ...

It’s easier for me to do day-to-day things

I've been following a low-carb diet since May, and have lost over 40 pounds so far! I still have a way to go, but the energy I have already is incredible. It's easier for me to do day-to-day things, and I have become far more active. My skin has also cleared up, and some medical problems I was having have disappeared. Eating a keto diet has hugely helped my relationship with food, and I am living with a clearer mind and less anxiety! Friends and family have told me what a difference they can see ...

My body said “I’m in!”

My body said “I’m in!”

I have always been a bit of a gym rat. I was a soldier, and have always tried to stay in good physical shape. That being said, I was constantly stuck in this rut of working out, eating what I thought was "healthy", and never getting any real results. Years went on and on like that. Sometimes I would loose a little weight through sheer will, and then I would just gain it back; plus some. The last few years I went through a bit of a depression. Chalk it up to PTSD, a failed marriage, turning 40; ...
