Brayden Met His Weight and Fitness Goals

Since 2011 I’d struggled with my weight. Putting on a few extra pounds after getting married didn’t help the situation. I wasn’t obese per se, but I was definitely overweight. I wasn’t sick and didn’t feel “unhealthy,” in fact, I trained for and raced in a sprint triathlon. But buying bigger clothes and generally getting bigger and bigger had a toll on my mind. My wife and I had tried several different diets, including the raw food diet, a juice diet, slow-carb diet, etc. We even tried keto, but ...

April Feels Better at 47 than She Did at 27!

My LCHF/keto journey has been unique to me, just like most others truthfully. When I started during June of 2016, I was fed up with being tired all the time, having no energy, struggling to stand up from a floor-seated position, and having to take meds for constant acid reflux. I wasn’t 100% sure how to eat because as a vegetarian, I didn’t eat red meat, pork, chicken, or beef. I decided to add fish and other seafood back to my diet to make this work, and I figured out how to move forward by ...
