My name is Chrissy. I am a fifty-four year old married mother of two although very near the ‘empty nester’ stage. I am at that stage of life whereby I have to face I am aging and the things that accompany that particularly the dreaded weight gain! My partner is aging too, has weight issues and has pre diabetes. I still feel in my twenties in my mind but my body is telling me a very different story!
Looking back I think I have led a charmed life, I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted without gaining weight, I did not have to exercise, when I was forty-four years old my blood test was fine, no bad cholesterol, etc.
Fast forward ten years and I am going through the menopause with all the symptoms that go with that particularly fat around my midriff! Swollen ankles was another one, I only read about this when my ankles had returned to their normal size, knowledge is a wonderful thing.
Last September I saw a post about the ketogenic diet on Facebook which really excited me as my partner had tried various diets before with no success, he was taking about ten meds daily at that point in time too. I showed the article to my partner and it appealed to him as it was ‘how we ate anyway’ but without the carbs and sugars.
I have lost six kilos and feel slimmer, lighter and fitter. My partner has lost twelve kilos but best of all his blood sugar levels are nearly normal, he has reduced his daily meds and feels happier. He misses bread, hot chips and roast potatoes though! The ketogenic diet has to be a permanent way of eating for both of us and I believe it will be as there are so many wonderful foods out there that don’t include carbohydrates or sugars. I love keto.
