At 57 years-old and 460lbs, my father passed away. Watching this happen at 40, I knew I needed to turn my life around. Grain Brain, and a ketogenic lifestyle, did that for me.
I went from 360 lbs. to ~250 lbs. in a couple years. I started with a modified keto diet, but as I saw results I continued to improve over a 3-year period to reach the optimal keto diet I am currently on, which is low-fat, high-protein, and extremely low-carb diet. As a lifestyle change, I have combined this with intense strength training. I feel 18 again, and can keep up with anyone else in the gym without needing carbs. I recover exceptionally well and my joints feel great. Best of all, my body is dropping fat fast. I’m almost in a size 34 jean now at 258 lbs.
I eat very clean, organic protein, lots of spinach, broccoli, asparagus, etc. I enjoy grass-fed beef, properly raised and fed chicken, and have been adding more fish to my diet as well. Never eat any wheat/gluten, ever.
