Default 1 Month in, 24 lbs down! [w/pics]

I started eating healthy on January 27th, and I did a juice fast for 5 days, ate veggies for the next 2, and since then I've been doing keto. I weighed myself this morning, and I have lost 24 lbs!! ^___^ I'm so excited and happy. During the process, I realized I have a gluten intolerance. My gut/mid-section area has slimmed a lot, my face/skin has a healthy glow, and.... I have a lot of energy (which is wonderful since I'm a teacher!) Well, here are the before/after pics:



I should've tried to make myself look half-decent in the 'before' pics... but at the time I felt hideous, so I let myself look hideous.

I hope I encourage all of you as much as you encourage me <3

I am a teacher too! I have lost 30 since January 1. I think about 26 in the last month. What is keto?

Basically high fat, low carb, with enough proteins to keep your muscles. 65% of your cals should come from fat, 30% from protein, and 5% carbs. Here's a document with the explanation/science: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...EHc/edit?pli=1

For someone who is gluten intolerant and insulin resistant, it's the best way of eating I've come across. Especially since it's easy to stick to and I don't have any desires to cheat plus, you can see if you're in 'ketosis' by using Ketostix (sold in the diabetic section at Wal-Mart.)

Since doing keto, my blood pressure has gone down and my sugar levels are at healthy levels instead of nearing pre-diabetic levels

Wow! That's great. I just started keto today after weeks of research to prepare myself. I'm excited for my journey and I hope you keep us updated as well!
