I felt uncomfortable in my prom dress. cabbage soup, where you literally eat only cabbage soup), but all failed. At best, I would lose a little weight at first, then I would get everything back.

After having my twins in 2014, I reached my heaviest weight: 320 pounds (I weighed 360 pounds when I gave birth). It was at this point that I started to follow a low carb diet intermittently, without any luck. I felt heavy and uncomfortable and I knew I had to change.

I felt conscious of myself and trapped in my body. It was then that I came across the keto diet.

I stumbled upon the keto diet in 2016. At first I was suspicious because it looked like a fad diet, but I soon discovered that a high-keto keto diet in carbs and fat was viable for me. I did not miss so much carbs and found out that I liked to focus on meat, cheese and other keto-friendly foods.

"data-reactid =" 30 "> In the beginning, I continued to eat fast foods because it seemed like a chore too heavy to start cooking my own meals at first, but when I became ketosis, I had started to actually want to cook at home. My energy level was increasing and I was not living for my next cheat meal. I lived my life without depriving myself.

My first year on the keto has been a huge learning curve.

In a few months, I lost 30 pounds. I felt so much better and proud of myself, but then the holidays went by and I ended up in my old habits: celebrate with food and eat at the restaurant often.

I was trying to keep in mind that it was an obstacle on the road and that it did not mean that my trip was over. I was a good choice before I was back on track, so my New Year's resolution for 2017 was, again, losing weight.

I began to talk to me in a softer tone and showed me more empathy in my diet.

I decided to hire me again in my keto diet, but in a "lazy" version. It meant not following everything and letting me follow a less strict keto diet (so I would sometimes have pork rinds or fast foods that are keto-friendly).

Overall, I try to keep my net carbs at less than 20 grams. I try to eat a lot of fat and not overdo it with protein, but I do not count my calories, I just eat intuitively. Here is what a typical meal day looks like for me:

  • Breakfast: Denver omelette (ham, peppers, onions and cheese)
  • Breakfast: Taco salad (without shell or beans), with guacamole supplement
  • snacks: Hard eggs, cubes of cheese or almonds
  • Having dinner: Keto meatloaf (made with crushed pork rinds and grated cheese instead of breadcrumbs) and a side of green beans with cheese.
  • Dessert: Know the foods peanut butter peanut butter cake topped with peanut butter

The keto diet has given me more energy to train me.

I also like to go hiking in the mountains. When I had 200 pounds in September 2017, I had only covered a quarter of a 2.5 mile trail and had to drive back. Now, I do this mountain trail two to three times a week (28-minute return trip).

Until now, I've lost 143 pounds and, even though I'm still monitoring my weight loss, I'm in the maintenance phase. I experimented more with foods to eat on the keto diet, and I started using dumbbells and adding a little more bodybuilding. I want to explore more, ride from other mountains, maybe even to the outside of the country.

Yes, my weight loss made it easier to exercise and run with my kids, but even more, it made me feel more comfortable with my body, which in turn was worth it.
