By Amanda Akesson, medical review by Dr. Bret Scher M.D.,
Ever since Lani’s weight struggles began in her late 20s, her New Year’s resolution was to lose the excessive pounds.
Although she never succeeded with “balanced” eating, it never crossed her mind that she might be on the wrong diet. Instead she blamed herself and thought that she simply didn’t have enough willpower to lose weight.
Fortunately, she discovered the keto diet this year. And the results so far have been transformative:
My name is Lani and I live in Ithaca, New York. My story is a familiar one. I started putting on weight in my late 20s and got heavier as the years flew by. I joined Weight Watchers every January 2nd, for 25 consecutive years. I just KNEW it was the BEST way to eat. After all, it was a healthy balanced eating plan that followed the Standard American Diet. Not to mention that I was convinced “I” was the problem for having NO will power. So I made my New Year’s Resolution every year, to get the weight off and conquer my inadequacies once and for all, only to feel more like a failure year by year.
Fast forward to March 2019, when I happened upon the Diet Doctor website after hearing about the ketogenic diet. To say it has changed my life is an understatement. For the first time in ever, I know I can stay the course. Sure, I’ve already had my ups and downs but what’s different with this lifestyle is, even if I choose to forgo “low carb” for a weekend or even for a week, I am confident that I can jump back into the fray and carry on. What’s really interesting is that I am getting to the point that I do not need to risk a weekend “off keto”. I like the way keto makes me feel!
My starting weight (March 25, 2019) was 234 lbs (106 kg), and my current weight (September 19, 2019) is 197 lbs (89 kg). Naturally, I had expected to be at least 60 lbs (27 kg) down by the 6-month mark, but with the help of all the wonderful people on the Diet Doctor website and Facebook community, I have learned that every body is different and that this is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix.
