How long have you been following a ketogenic diet? 2 years
What is your favorite keto meal? Keto chili
Why did you start keto?
I have battled sugar addiction my entire life and keto helps me manage it and keep it in check. I started my YouTube channel (Incredible Shrinking Stephy) so that I can hold myself accountable but also inspire others to put their health first. In my opinion, keto is the best way to do that!
What was the hardest part of keto and how did you overcome it?
Giving up sugar. But it’s so worth it because once you stop eating it, you stop craving it!
Biggest changes in your day-to-day life?
I have more energy and more confidence. I’m finally becoming the person I’m destined to be. I am definitely a work in progress and I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m certainly on my way.
Best tip for newbies?
Stay away from processed foods and packaged foods that are labeled “KETO FRIENDLY.” Just because it says it’s Keto doesn’t mean it is. The cleaner you eat, the faster the weight will come off.
Also, when (not if) you hit your plateau, change things up to shock your body! Do a short fast of some sort. It’ll get the weight moving again.
If there is one thing that you could tell yourself when first getting started, what would it be and why?
Be patient and focus on the mental part of your journey. This isn’t a physical battle. It’s a mental one. Once you fix the mindset and the behavior that got you to your highest weight, then everything else will fall into place.
Anything you would like to add about your story?
I encourage you to follow me on YouTube! This has been an incredibly hard and long journey but without the struggle, you’ll never find your strength. I truly believe we don’t have to do it alone!
