I have tried to lose weight 100 times before. Guess what? I’m still obese. It never worked no matter how hard I tried. I had every excuse in the book but ultimately it was simple to figure out why I kept failing. All my previous attempts weren’t set up to be a lifestyle change and after I had lost the weight I reverted to my old ways. It was a viscous cycle; lose 30lbs, gain 30lbs back. Even being diagnosed with a genetic heart defect wasn’t enough for me to change my life. My doctor told me lose the weight or look into bariatric surgery. It made my heart issue 10x worse carrying around an extra 150lbs and if I didn’t take it seriously I was in for serious problems.
Bariatric surgery was not an option for me. I needed to fix myself with something that I could stick to, or in other words, make a lifestyle change. I needed to save myself from my unhealthy ways. Around the same time I was diagnosed with my heart defect, my father’s heart doctor recommended the Ketogenic diet combined with intermittent fasting.
After hearing my dad’s heart doctor recommend the Keto diet and having the same heart defect as my father, I figured what the hell…why not try it? What did I have to lose? I tried everything else except weightloss surgery. Might as well give it a try! It was my last hope!
