aldo paredes Shares Amazing Results - Dr. Berg's Healthy Keto

Story

By: aldo paredes

dr berg, 4 weeks ago, I woke up and my hands, thighs, legs and feet were all swollen. I looked in the mirror and my face was completely round, that's how swollen I was. it scared me to the point where I said, I need to immediately do something. I had been reading and researching the keto diet. so, as a family we immediately started. we planned all of our meals, I looked for keto recipes and we instantly removed from our diets, rice, bread, pasta, potatoes and everything else with carbs; even other veggies that contained more then the 20grams suggested. into my 3rd week I had my wife take a glucose reading and it read 137. I know very bad. but however, I had noticed I lost a little weight but more importantly, I lost girth. I actually went from a 44/46 size pants to a 42. now, we are in the end of our 4th week and I took another glucose reading and it is now at 116. I weighed myself and I have lost 12 pounds at the end of my 4th week. we are experiencing now many of the symptoms described as being in ketosis. my goals are long range. I need to drop in my immediate goal 40 pounds and my end goal is 80 pounds. it may take me 6 months maybe 12 but we are committed. as my wife says, clothes don't lie. so, many of the pants and shirts I had in my closet, now fit. its like buying a whole new wardrobe. even my shoes are big. so, we hope things will continue on the right path. I have a appointment with my doctor next week to discuss everything. I hope I have made some progress to show him. when I started this, I was somewhere around 280. now i'm at 267. I am on high blood pressure medication; losartan 100mg 1/day. right before I made the decision to go on keto, that dosage was not keeping my pressure in check. now, with the same dosage, i'm back to reading 128/74. my goal is to get that way down and reduce my dosage; I hope! well that's it for now. by the way, I am 58 years old.
