Jeremy Lamport's Story
Jeremy Lamport started his weight loss journey in 2013. At the time, he weighed 450 pounds (204 kg) and felt unhappy with his body.
“I wasn’t able to do things with my kids or buy clothes that fit me from a store in the mall,” he said.
Even without a support system, Lamport decided to give keto a try after finding some of Dr. Berg’s videos on YouTube. During the six years since he realized he needed to lose weight, it hasn’t always been easy.
Dr. Berg taught him to make sure he got enough vegetables in his diet and in the end, he achieved a lot. “The hardest part was stalling and wanting to give up,” said Lamport. “My kids kept me going. I did it for them.”
In total, he’s lost almost 200 pounds (91 kg) and feels more comfortable going out with his kids. He likes his current size better than having “people staring at the big fat guy.”
The only thing Lamport would change about his journey is that he wishes he’d kept things simpler in the beginning. To others who are at the start of their keto experience he says, “Don’t give up, and keep it simple.”
