‘I just want to say the keto diet is amazing!’
We received an inspiring message from Wayne who’s markedly improved his health with a keto diet.
“I’ve lost 48 pounds (23 kilos) since June 2019. I have more energy, I’m fitter than I used to be, and I’m no longer in pain from arthritis in my hands,” Wayne says.
Here’s his story, which has been lightly edited for length and clarity.
Wayne’s keto journey
I just want to say the keto diet is amazing!I’ve lost 48 pounds (23 kilos) since June 2019. I have more energy, I’m fitter than I used to be, and I’m no longer in pain from arthritis in my hands. I recommend the keto diet to everyone.
My partner introduced me to keto last year. I’ve been on diets in the past, but I’ve always put the weight back on after some time. Before keto, I indulged in biscuits, cakes, and chocolate regularly.
These days, I eat a big breakfast with avocado, eggs, and bacon. Lunch consists of broccoli and fish. If I’m hungry in between meals, I snack on macadamia nuts and almonds. But I’m no longer as hungry as I used to be, because I eat loads of protein and drink water.
If I have a meal in the late afternoon, I’ll only have a small evening snack like carrot sticks and cream cheese. Every once in a while, I make keto beef stew for dinner.
Before, I used to eat plenty of rice, which wasn’t great. These days, I substitute it with cauliflower rice. I think exercise is great on the keto diet since it helps you feel even better.
My top three tips are simple: minimize your carb intake, increase your fat intake, and if you haven’t yet tried it, use coconut oil for cooking meats, eggs, and vegetables.
Congrats on your incredible progress and success Wayne! Your story shows a very common example of how eating higher protein, lower carb foods frequently gets rid of the cravings and snacking on high calorie high carb foods. It can make a world of difference. Keep up the great work!
