The keto diet: Carina lost 55 pounds in six months


Carina had had enough of her overweight and searched the internet for a solution. Here’s her story on how she reached her goal weight with keto:

One day in November 2017, I had had enough of the number on the scale. Last time I weighed myself was about a month before I decided that enough was enough, and then the scales showed 196 lbs (89 kg).

I googled and realized that Diet Doctor’s program would fit me perfectly😄 I took the plunge, and went cold turkey with five days of just boiled eggs.

Wow, I saw great results just in those few days – minus 8 lbs (3.5 kg), and thereafter I have kept below 10 g carbs per day for six months. The result has been 55 lbs (22 kg) lost. I have now reached my goal weight with the help of Diet Doctor’s recipes and my own creativity with their recipes as a base. I am super happy!❤️

Best, Carina
