Passionate follower of the keto way of living!

I follow a strict low-carb lifestyle to manage my type 2 diabetes completely WITHOUT medications. My blood sugars are rarely over 110, even after meals, and my blood pressure is completely normal.

No meds! Woohoo!!!

The ketogenic way of eating and living has saved my life, not only through weight loss but through health gain.

Ketogenic eating is healthy eating, but it involves a paradigm shift. The standard American diet (SAD) is ruining the health of people, and traditional weight loss methods don't work in the long-term, except for a tiny amount of people.

How is the Ketogenic way of eating defined? I go with a strict definition which induces nutritional ketosis and reverses type 2 diabetes.

This means I eat a high healthy fat, moderate protein and low carb diet. I don't track calories, and I also don't work too hard on figuring out macro percentages.

What do I do instead?

I eat:

20-30 grams of carbs a day, mostly in the form of leafy green vegetables
75 grams of protein a day
and healthy fats to satiety

I also only eat 1, maybe 2 times a day and follow a natural intermittent fasting protocol.

I don't eat junk food, highly processed foods or grains. No sodas, diet or otherwise.

My drinks of choice are water, tea and coffee. I'll occasionally have a sparkling flavored water if I'm craving carbonation, and maybe a glass of white wine a couple of times a year, but that's it.

My health is the most important thing in my life, and I guard it zealously.

I didn't come to this way of living without extensive research, and science (and my experience) definitely support this way of living.

I call it a way of living because the ketogenic lifestyle encompasses more than diet...sleep, stress, activity, spirituality, mental outlook,'s all a vital part of being ketogenic.

As for fitness, I'm no longer trapped on the chronic cardio treadmill. I follow a Primal way of being active as defined by Mark Sisson on his website, Mark's Daily Apple ( )

I love being healthy and fit and active, and I only do exercise that I like, which is awesome!

While I'm not quite at my goal weight, it's getting closer all the time, but my weight is not as big a deal to me as my regained health.

Please feel free to contact me with questions, I am happy to answer them and help!

Starting weight: 224

My goal weight is 145-150, but I'm not on a race to get there.

What's more important to me is my health, and that has been achieved! My type 2 diabetes is completely reversed, I am no longer even pre-diabetic, and my blood pressure is completely normal, all without medication, simply through changing my diet.

    Hi I was so excited to find someone who is on the same page as me. After reading your blogs I decided to order the book on fasting. As you can tell by my name I follow the paleo/primal way of eating.68 years young and no meds or pain. However my blood pressure is high sometimes, so decided to look into the fasting. Also my cholesterol numbers could be better according to the medical Doctors but not my Naturopath Doctor.
