So back to 2011, I started working in a day program and enjoyed my job, but was not physically active like I was when I worked in factories or in construction. Also, there was a gas station right next door where I would go daily and buy huge Mountain Dew fountain drinks and donuts. When I got to 198 lbs I told myself “this is the most I have ever weighed, I feel like crap, I am embarrassed about the way I look, and I don’t want to get to 200 lbs”.
My 40th birthday was coming up in August of 2014. I started working out for an hour a day 5 days a week. I also started eating O ne M eal A D ay or OMAD . What I was eating was always the same things. I would eat 16 oz of 85/15 hamburger and a bag of salad pretty much every day. Some days I would have 5 brats with no bun instead of the hamburger but that was about it. I didn’t know it at the time but the way I was eating was putting my body into a state of ketosis! When I turned 40 I weighed 168 lbs and much of that was muscle.
Fast forward to 2016, when I was working my present job in a Minneapolis High School in Special Education. I was looking on youtube for some different workouts and came upon this guy, Jason Whittrock who was talking about this thing called ketosis. Then I found Thomas DeLauer and Dr. Berg and it snowballed from there. At this point I started counting my macros and learned about all the additional health benifits a keto lifestyle has for both your body and mind! Now in February 2019 I am 7 months from being in the best shape of my life at 45! I am excited about my body/mind experience using the keto lifestyle and want to share this life altering experience with others!
Thank You for joining me for this journey!
