No, this is not a gimmick and I am not “joshing” you. It can be done! You can lose the belly fat quickly on the Ketogenic Diet. Most see a difference in as little as 2 weeks!
Hello Keto Friends! If you recall from the About Us page then you will remember that I referred to how the wife and I were “smacked” by the OMG stick.
Well, not really smacked but it was in that point in time as we were cuddled in bed with our princess Liliana and our handsome prince Aiden. That we were browsing vacation pictures and we came to the ultimate realization that we were overweight.
Our extra weight did not show up well in the pictures and definitely did not look healthy. I could clearly see my belly fat protruding from my tank top.
We looked older than we really was and we were embarrassed.
As you are reading this, you are probably wondering how could we not have realized; realized that we put on so many extra pounds over the years.
As we progressed through key moments in our lives such as our marriage after being high school sweethearts to the birth of our very first child Liliana.
Followed by our first home and birth of our second blessing Aiden; you realize that you have more important matters to focus on rather than yourself.
In all that time when you do gain an extra minute or two the pounds have already built up. I am sure some of you or all of you can relate.
First step is to believe, take that leap of faith!
The wife and I were fortunate to remain close with family and friends and part of that benefit is that we share life events.
With that being said, family on my wife’s side (we will call them Shawn and Kathy) were beginning a new diet in which they and I quote
“can lose weight by eating bacon, eggs and cheese”.
Yes, we are talking about the Ketogenic Diet in which you eat healthy fat while drastically cutting down the carbs.
The reason they started the diet is because their mentor Dave who spearheaded this weight loss journey for himself had enlightened them with this emerging diet.
My initial reaction was to tell my wife that her family were nuts (sorry guys! ????). A week turned into a month and the month turned into a couple of months. The next time we saw them, our mouths fell to the floor as we saw how much weight they had lost!
They were living proof and in that moment we both looked at each other, took the first step and believed!
The key to success is to commit!
Once we made the choice to join our family on The Ketogenic Diet and we saw how they were quickly losing the weight and their belly fat. Webecame even more amped up to see this through to the end.
We committed to the cause and to our mentor Dave. What is different in this diet than any other diet is the idea that we did not have to buy a costly monthly subscription to shakes and teas. We did not have to aggressively workout or run and we did not have to follow a point system.
By completing a thorough research, following the guidance from our mentor Dave and working together as a group (there were 5 of us in the group); to spread motivation, support and even Keto Recipes we would remain committed and in turn succeed.
Become friends with time as time will become your best friend!
Once you begin to experience the benefits of Ketosis which is when your body has flushed out harmful sugars. You have now drastically cut your carbohydrate intake and trained your body to relay on healthy fat for energy.
You may have already lost between 5-10 pounds in the first two weeks and noticed that belly fat shrinking!
At that point you will realize that it is just a matter of time that 10 pounds will turn to 15 pounds and 15 pounds can turn into 30 pounds.
In summary Keto friends, believe in yourself and take that important first step! Commit to succeed and succeed by committing and last but not least lean on time as your best friend. If you do, you can
count those pounds away while seeing that belly fat disappear.
