Justin is Down Over 100 Pounds Using Keto

Two years ago my legs looked and felt like they would pop with the prick of a pin. I could not have my socks pulled up without leaving a large indent in my calf that would last for hours. Needless to say, it was uncomfortable and something needed to change. I had tried to make changes in the past with some success, but I always fell back into my old habits. If first you don't succeed try try again. And I did, but this time I used my failures as motivation, telling myself that I can accomplish ...

Emily Lost 60 Lbs and Lives Her Best Life

My weight problems began in my late teen years. Prior to that, I would go through phases of trying to eat healthily or working out, but I never really had to worry about my weight.

Burying my emotions in comfort foods and too many trips through the fast-food drive-thru resulted in my weight going up. So I started counting calories and eating low-fat foods to lose the ...

I’ve been Ketogenic for almost 3 years now, I can’t imagine a better way of life! When I hit my highest weight was probably one of the toughest realizations for me because I never really focused on how much weight I had gained.

My mother in law told me about Keto and after losing 10lbs in water ...

This time was different, my 9-year-old received a letter from her school saying she had to be ...
