Before and after

Before and after

Is it possible to get rid of all kinds of health issues and lose 130 lbs (59 kg) of excess weight on a ketogenic diet? Clearly – that’s what mother Alvina Rayne did, after ending a harmful relationship.

Mail Online: Obese Mother Gets Revenge on Her Cruel Ex-Boyfriend Who Branded Her an ‘Ugly, Fat Piece of Garbage’ by Shedding 130 Lbs

How did she do it? She swapped her fruit loops, take-out food and ice cream for meat, eggs and coconut oil. Well done!

    I really love this story! Obese people do become victims of bullying, whether at home or work or the public. After following the SAD diet and seeing that they get fat anyway, then they lose all hope and drown their sorrow in crappy foods like Taco Bell and sugary cereal (why not? If you are going to be fat anyway being disciplined at no more than 1200 cal per day eating the SAD diet, isn't it better to have some enjoyment?). This is a great example how keto diet improves health and quality of life.

    Interesting how keto diet is another weapon to fight bullying.

    'The Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids' (Macronutrients)(2005) is a standard written resource for the dietetic profession. Even this publication says on page 275:

    "The lower limit of dietary carbohydrate compatible with life apparently is zero, provided that adequate amounts of protein and fat are consumed."

    Do you have any citation as to why you
    think she would need to return any carbs
    to her diet? She looks like she's thriving
    well with what she's doing.

    Well done, keep an eye on your cholesterol level though, I lost 60 pounds on this diet, however after never having a problem with a cholesterol hike, but after being on this diet for a year, I have a problem, so I need to fix that somehow, any suggestions for that?
    I was bullied as well, it can bring you down. The thing I like about this diet is you don't go hungry.
