Suzie’s Keto Success Story





This is BIG! this is BIG!!…

Suzie literally shouted those words five times while I was on the phone with her. Why? You might be thinking…

She’d just made her biggest keto discovery ever.

What was this discovery? You’ll find out in a teeny tiny bit…

But first, a little background story about Suzie. When you’re done reading Suzie’s intriguing story, you’d not only find out what this discovery was… You’ll also find out how you can harness this little discovery of Suzie’s to put an end to your weight loss struggles — that’s if you’d be interested in that kind of stuff.

Let’s get on with Suzie’s story…

Suzie is a 66 years old wife, works a high-stress job, 5′ 4″ tall, and weighed almost 200 lbs. Like most women her age, Suzie tried many diet plans and weight loss programs to lose weight. She even hired a personal trainer and worked out five days a week. While she found a bit of success with some of those programs and her workout routine, she faced one problem. She always gained back more weight after losing some. One step forward; two steps back kind of “progress”.

You get the picture. Right?

Suzie decided to try keto for a change back in 2015. She signed up at ruled.me and followed through with the plan.

Did it yield results?




Yes. But it was too slow for her liking.

Suzie was losing just 1 lb a week, but at a point, she had to make her peace with the slow-paced result. She had no choice, as her Doctors told her she shouldn’t expect more at her age. That was why Suzie couldn’t believe her eyes when she climbed the scale and found out she’d lost nearly 16 lbs in a few weeks of working with me on a keto program. That was about 2 lbs of weight loss per week — twice what she was initially doing! Suzie was so amazed that she went…

“This is big…this big…” Five whole times!

Now, here’s the interesting thing…
Losing 16 lbs wasn’t even the thing that wowed Suzie. Not at all. It was the simplicity and easy-to-follow nature of my keto weight loss system that stupefied her.

You see…
When Suzie started the program, she had the mindset that the system would be restrictive and difficult to follow through — like the others, she’d tried in the past…

Boy, was she wrong!

In Suzie’s words…
“I always knew there was some kind of secret to losing weight and keeping it off, but I didn’t just know what it was.”

After going through my keto program, Suzie felt she’d found that secret.

Here are the key changes and results Suzie reported after working with me for a couple months:
● She observed a 60% relief from the joint pains she initially suffered — specifically in her knees.
● The pains she experienced in the bottom of her feet totally disappeared by week 4.
● Initially, she found it hard getting up from the floor when she went down. This improved by 60%.
● Her mood dramatically improved by 70%.
● Extreme craving for food went from a ten to zero by week 2.
● It became easy to move around gracefully.
● A lightness in her body and less clumsiness.

Overall, Suzie is happy and thankful that she decided to work with me.

In Suzie’s words…

“I finally feel like I’m on a path that’s possible to stick with this way of eating, lose weight, and
keep it off as a permanent solution.”

On why she chose to work with me rather than the thousands of other keto coaches out there, here’s what she said…

The fact that I have health care provider credentials gave her the confidence that I was knowledgeable about keto and could help her get the best results. The fancy acronyms after my name sure stood out to her 🙂

Suzie is thrilled that her confidence in my credentials and program paid off handsomely.

She’s very optimistic and hopeful about the future. She’s happy that my program helped her find keto fitting into her lifestyle. After graduating from my nine-week keto program, Suzie decided to join my Keto Lifestyle Crew membership program. It’s an advanced keto program for long-term support and accountability. Suzie decided to join the program immediately — and not wait until January — for ONE reason:

She understands the need to stay committed and accountable for her eating habit. Especially during the holiday — a period most people give up, eat unhealthily, and move their weight loss goals to the next year.

If you desire to experience the type of weight loss transformation that Suzie has gone through (and is still going through), you have to start by making some firm decisions. One of those firm decisions you have to make is that you’d start now.

Not next week. Not next month.

Even if you’ve struggled through the year to eat healthy with no sustainable weight loss results to show, don’t give up now… Pull through the holidays… Eat healthy through this season, and when January rolls around, you’ll be steps ahead of those who gave up this season.



Allison’s Keto Success Story





Waking up tired most mornings? Suffering energy dips and having to snack multiple times to get through the day? Experiencing mental fogginess? Grappling with stiffness and pain in the joints – when you know you’re too young for that? Well, all of these were Allison’s sad reality.

In addition to the above, Allison (a happy client of mine) also suffered from PCOS. Her menstrual cycle was irregular. She feared she was close to developing type-2 diabetes. Due to her excess weight, she felt like a stranger in her own body. The same way most people struggling to lose weight feel.

Can you relate to these things? If you can, I’ve got good news for you…
You can turn things around and create a new reality for yourself…

You can go from struggling with these things to becoming the best version of YOURSELF and living your best life ever. The way it happened for Allison — within nine weeks! Here’s how everything changed for Allison…

Before giving birth to her three sons, Allison struggled with infertility. To enable her to take-in and deliver naturally, her Doctors placed her on keto. Due to her successful birth through the program, Allison saw the power in keto. She decided to adopt it as a long-term lifestyle. There was one problem, though… All the contradictory information about keto flying around the internet got her pretty confused and overwhelmed. As a senior director at a major corporation, she was super busy, ate out most times, so needed something easy to follow. In her own words, “I want to put my eating on autopilot and watch the weight fall off.” Quite a tall order. Yeah?

Did it play out that way? Continue reading to find out 🙂

 

 

When Allison came across my website and read about my nine weeks keto program, she immediately knew it was for her. Over the next nine weeks, I taught Allison everything she needed to understand about keto, drew up a plan for her, and pushed her to follow through with the program.

Guess what?

Before the end of the nine weeks program, Allison lost 20 lbs. But that wasn’t all…
Her PCOS symptoms vanished, her joints pains are gone, and so are her T&J symptoms (which wasn’t in her original list of goals before we started the program). Allison now feels super great about her body. She no longer feels sluggish and tired. She’s now so energetic that she engages in light exercises whenever she’s chanced — even in her office! She now feels grounded, clear-headed, and in control of her eating habits. She has also witnessed significant improvement in all areas of her life: her keto and relationships with her husband, kids, workers, and friends.

Overall, she has a more positive outlook on life. Thanks to the “easy to follow” system she was exposed to while she worked with me.
Allison has gone on to sign up for one of my advanced programs for further guidance,
mentorship, and longer-term support to help her live a sustainable lifestyle.

 

 

She’s now pursuing a goal of dropping 20 lbs more to get to her goal weight.
Will you like to transform your life as Allison did?
Will you like 2020 to be the last year you’d have to worry about weight loss and the baggage that comes with it?

Yes?

Then you have to start by making a decision.

A decision to learn and stay committed to a plan. Now, there are two ways you can approach this:

1. Spend the next couple of months reading blogs, watching hours of videos on keto, then try to draw up a workable plan.

2. Sign up to work with me and have an “easy to follow” system (that has produced transformative results for Allison and countless others) handed over to you. Just implement and get results over the next few weeks—no waste of time, no guesswork!

If the first option is your preferred choice, I respect that. I wish you the best of luck. If the second option sounds good to you, click the “Apply to work with Carole” Button — after walking over some details with you. Whatever you choose to do, remember that your health is essential. Treat it as such. Make a move!

 



One Year on a Keto Diet

Like everything else in life, it feels like a long time, yet it feels like a very short time. No matter the relative time, this last year has been life-changing, that is for sure.

Want to catch up on my monthly updates? Start here with Month 1

When putting together all that I wanted to share with you about the last year of my ketogenic diet, I looked back at the diary I started at the beginning, when I still considered it a 90-day experiment. Here is what I wrote about 2.5 weeks in:

“Why did I do this?

So many reasons! I was in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) last year and in addition to the chronic pain in my legs, I’ve also been having a really long list of other symptoms (fatigue, lightheadedness, cognitive impairment, gastroparesis, heartburn, extreme hypoglycemia symptoms, uncontrollable appetite, extremely high CRP (inflammation marker), etc.) that I think are related to a mild brain injury and Post Traumatic Hypopituitarism. So I wanted to see if this WOE could help heal my brain. Also, dementia runs on both sides of my family (one side is dead, other side was just sent to assisted living due to it). Family history of diabetes. Metabolic Syndrome (I currently fit the criteria). Low HDL cholesterol. AND I really wanted to learn all I could about keto because I’m a nutritionist and if it worked as well as everyone says it does, then I can’t wait to take it to my clients. (I’m about 2.5 weeks in and so far I’m feeling FANTASTIC and more and more motivated each day to keep going. Improvements I’ve seen already: pain in my legs is nearly gone, cognition is nearly as good as pre-MVA, gastroparesis gone, heartburn gone, CRP dropped 62%, hypoglycemia symptoms gone, and appetite normalized. I haven’t had my cholesterol numbers checked yet, but I’m sure things are improving there, too.

I’ve never been able to follow any kind of diet plan in the past due to extreme feelings of deprivation and constant hunger. And as far as the middle path, mindful eating, intuitive eating, all that stuff I used to teach to all my clients, well, that is what lead me to all the health problems and 50 pound weight gain over 10 years! However, with keto, although it is very restrictive (still plenty to eat though!), it has been way easier for me to stick to, mostly because of the threat of having to start over with the fat adaptation process. It isn’t that fun to go through and takes some time, and I don’t want to start that all over again. The other reason it has been easier is that my appetite is more normal rather than ravenous because my body is actually getting an efficient fuel source.”

Video Updates

This month I decided to do two videos. One is a montage of all my monthly progress photos so you can really see the body transformation. The second video is a verbal update of all the health improvements plus other things that have happened over the last month.

Full Year of Monthly Progress Pictures

My 12-Month Update

My central sleep apnea is much improved as well.)
  • No more non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (something I recently realized that I haven’t even mentioned here)
  • Normal blood pressure (after the accident, it was high enough I was considering taking medication)
  • No more stiff ankles in the morning (pre-accident symptom)
  • No more head twitch (something I had not reported here yet, but something else that I remember from pre-accident and pre-keto was a random, uncontrollable head twitch)
  • Mental and nervous system function greatly improved (after the accident, I was having issues with words getting jumbled when speaking or typing, along with frequently dropping things)
  • No more popping jaw (TMJ)
  • Normal digestion (no GERD, no heartburn, no gastroparesis, normal bowel movements, no gas or bloating)
  • Lightheadedness nearly gone (post accident symptom)
  • Chronic leg pain nearly gone (no edema or swelling, still having some hypersensitivity late at night (allodynia) but not intolerable)
  • No more dry elbows
  • Very soft skin
  • Clear skin
  • Plenty of energy for all day (post accident fatigue was debilitating)
  • Exercise endurance (I can go hiking for hours without any food)
  • And much more than I’m remembering right now!

Moving away from a vegetarian diet transformed Randy Webb’s health

Keto Chat Episode 14 is with Randy Webb, Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. Randy was my counseling internship supervisor when I was completing my graduate degree in 2012, and at that time, he was a vegetarian. When I went to visit Phoenix in March 2016, I was excited to talk to Randy about a couple of  the therapies he’s passionate about. But then I discovered that he had a big surprise for me regarding his diet!

What we talk about:

  • Randy’s surprise development of metabolic syndrome, fatigue, sleep trouble, and kidney issues when he was eating, what he thought was, a health diet.
  • His journey from a low-fat, high carb, vegetarian diet to a lower carb, omnivorous diet
  • Who inspired Randy to look at his diet and give up oatmeal and consider eating sardines for breakfast
  • What health improvements he’s seen since changing his diet
  • Which dietary change had the biggest impact on his health markers
  • How Randy became interested in hypnotherapy
  • How trauma can lead to mindless eating, emotional eating, or stress eating and what can be done about it
  • How EMDR therapy empowers a person to build their own internal resources for health and well-being as opposed to other talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing what is “wrong” with a person
