A learning journey
I’m a young girl from the Middle East. I grew up eating white rice for lunch every single day! I was also used to eating cereal for breakfast. My life was full of carbs and sugar and lots of snacks, I used to have 5 snacks a day. At the age of 19, I started to notice that I have some digestion problems, mostly constipation. I had a lot of acne too and my skin became so oily, I gained a lot of weight in one year (10 kg). I ignored all of that and everything got worse, my periods were painful, my hair started to fall, I had dandruff too. And of course I was constantly gaining weight. Until I decided to do a general blood test, and I found out that my blood sugar was high and I reached the pre-diabetes stage (I was only 20 years old!). I got really scared and I knew I had to do something about it, because if I don’t change anything now it’ll be harder to be healthy when I’m older. While I was searching the web for a good diet, I came across Dr. Berg’s YouTube channel, and it’s where I first heard about intermittent fasting & keto. I was scared of cutting carbs, so I started doing IF only for about 2 months, I was fasting for 16 hours and I found out it’s easier than I thought, maybe because we Muslims fast in Ramadan already. My dad encouraged me and started fasting with me too. We both were obese and both were looking for a diet to follow. After we watched a lot of Dr. Berg’s videos about the healthy keto diet, we decided to start doing keto together. I lost 30kg in 7 months, I reached my ideal weight AND got rid of all the digestion problems, skin problems, hair loss, everything! My blood sugar is normal now and I’m no longer in the pre-diabetes stage. Before keto and IF my weight was 87 kg, and now it’s 57 kg. I’m 22 now and I’m still maintaining my weight. Thank you for spreading all this vital info through your channels and helping people all around the world. God bless you.
