When you choose a diet, how do you know which one is right for you? Today I was reading in one group on Facebook where people who follow Keto Diet tell how they decided that the keto diet was the right chose for their weight loss plan. They say Keto way of eating was one of the best decisions they have made for their lives.


"I did a lot of research on Keto and Paleo diets. I knew that the carbs were my enemy. My many years of experience had shown me that the low fat wasn't working at all," wrote Jolyn Cagle in Common Sense Keto group on Facebook.

I choose Keto diet because nothing else worked. - Debbie Frank.

I was totally against the Keto Diet, but after the holidays and I wanted to do something drastic just to detox. I saw my friend saying she was going to try and so I skeptically decided Sunday to start Monday. After my "Keto flu," I am a total believer. I have never felt better. My skin is glowing. Today I was so full of energy I don’t think I sat down once. - Kate Beard.

I decided to go with Keto diet because I love the food. I have never been much of a carb or sweets person. Chronic back pain is gone. Keto helped to reduce my anxiety and I can think clearly now. - Darla Novak.

Not giving up bacon was one of the main reasons I chose Keto. - Sara Kenyon.

Lots of research, plus I knew other "diets" wouldn't work for me as there was no way I could stick with them. I find this easy to stick to. - JoAnn Chesnut

It has been used since the 1920's to cure disease (epilepsy, in particular) and it is backed by science. It makes perfect sense that avoiding toxic food and eating real/clean food can greatly benefit your health. Fat for fuel. It's how our bodies were meant to function. - Debbie Rizzo

A few of my friends have had great success with the Keto way of eating and I have 25 lbs I need to get rid of. It’s a tough go for me right now, I’ve got Candida die off going on right now, but my athlete's foot (that nothing has been able to fix in 15 years) has cleared up in less than a month. My memory is coming back, and I am really hoping when all the initial yucky stuff has cleared away I’ll feel fantastic. Trusting the process. - Christine Rudy.

I was doing the 5:2 diet but when I looked at my macros, even on fast days, my carb and fat intake were exactly the same. I thought this cant be good, so I switched to LCHF and then read more about Keto. This is the best decision I have ever made about my diet. - Bonnie Schults.

I watched a video a while back called butter makes your pants fall off. Then I started doing my research and it all made so much sense. - Krista Mirabelli.

My body decided that the Keto way of eating was right for me when it basically decided to be really really sick if I ate anything that wasn't Keto. I had never heard of the ketogenic diet at this point. I googled a list of the foods I was able to eat, google found me keto and I went from there. - Gill Gurwen.

The Keto way of eating was recommended by a friend to lose weight and after a ton of research, I agreed to give it a try. I haven’t really looked back. I have had a few carb “relapses” during pregnancy with cravings etc, but I always come back. - Tahlia Ferre.

I tried low carb diet with not great results. Then I found Keto. I did lots of research and I am happy with this WOE. My last 20 lbs disappearing to boot. - Chris Saounders.

From Atkins To Keto

I had been successful with Atkins diet in the past and I knew the that the science had evolved over the last decade. That led me to Keto. - Maura Banks.

I knew I liked Atkins, but as my husband saw the scales plummet. It didn’t work well for me long term due to stalls so I needed something stricter. I have an autoimmune disease and recurrent miscarriages and liver trouble and was looking for an anti-inflammatory version. Which is why I gravitated to Jack and followed him to this group because I needed super strict problem-solving. I am prone to stalls over and over. - Meredith Dailey.

I was a carboholic and I was ready to make a lifestyle change.. Now I am down 10 lb in my first week that was all the proof I needed. - Nicole Melanson.

I read a lot of articles about the Keto WOE and they made a lot of sense. Besides, calories restriction is stressful both at a mental and physical level. I did it for years and ended up slowing my metabolism. Plus, the satiety frees you from constantly thinking about your next meal. Oh, and bacon. Hope this helps! - Gulia Gabet.

Nothing else was working for my weight loss. An acquaintance had been doing this for a month and was looking great. I researched and decided to commit to a new lifestyle. So far so good. - Suzy Hamm.

My trainer at the gym was doing Keto. He has like a million degrees in exercise physiology and nutrition. He knows his stuff. He was pretty convincing so I gave it a go. 150 days in and never looked back. Seriously the best decision I have made for my health. - Terra Foster.
