Some biographical information about me … First, I'm 65, but I feel much younger and told I look younger, too. I think that is because my health quest began 31 years ago when my mother died at 66 of preventable causes. I saw myself going down that same path. I began studying about nutrition, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, medicinal herbs, medicinal mushrooms, functional medicine and homeopathy. Studying various aspects of how to stay healthy is still a huge part of my life and always will be. My family calls me Dr. Mom. I am divorced with one daughter and two grandsons, 10 and 13. I’m 5’1” and weight 155. I’d like to get to 115, but will be happy with 125. Back in the day (25-30 years ago), I used to be a personal trainer and weighed about 110. I have a ton of muscle ... I just need to shrink the skin around it, and I'm starting with diet and then will join the gym again.
Over the last 2 years, I have been more sedentary and put on some weight. Earlier this month, I joined a 12 day diabetes management and reversal summit with 50 speakers. I learned that I need to be on the ketogenic diet. I've made some very drastic changes in my eating lifestyle over the last couple of years, and was eating very healthy foods, but not losing weight. I now understand why. I have been doing the paleo plan for about a year, but not counting calories or macros. Now trying LCHF.
There are so many ways we can "go" with what we eat, and no one way is right for everyone. So, I am on my journey as we all are here. Keto is the way I will need to go from here on out. I am going to make it work! I'm looking forward to sharing my journey and hearing about yours.
