“My journey with obesity began when I was 19 years old. Between the ages of 19-50, I gained over 350 pounds. During those 20+ years I tried every diet plan out there, short of invasive stomach bypass. For the most part, all the diets I tried worked–but only for a period of time. I even lost over 120 pounds doing the Optifast liquid diet plan. But as with all the other plans, I was unable to sustain the diet and once I went off plan I would gain all the weight back AND THEN SOME! But as with all the other plans, I was unable to sustain the diet and once I went off plan I would gain all the weight back AND THEN SOME! At 500 pounds and as I approached my 50th birthday, I knew I had to make one last attempt so I tried a low carb diet called South Beach. It worked very well and over the next 8 years I lost over 200 pounds, I stalled for over a year and my doctor suggested I have a lap band procedure which helped me to loose an additional 100 pounds, totaling a loss of over 300 pounds. However, when the lap-band began to fail, I disabled it and immediately began to gain weight.
After gaining 40 pounds and fearful of gaining all the weight back, I did some research and found out about keto. I knew I could be successful on a low carb diet so I decided to give it a try. After a few weeks of struggling and getting misinformation, I heard about Carole, decided to work with her and have learned to love living a keto lifestyle.”
