    the trials and triumphs of my keto journey

    Get the inside scoop of this low-carb, high-fat diet as I share the trials and triumphs of my keto journey. Note this a long read but I promise to be brutally honest.

    In the past it was easy to manage my weight.  Being tall, I generally weigh more and my physique hides the fact that I am actually overweight. If I gained a few kilograms I would go on a quick weight loss programme to shed the excess weight. Yet it isn’t all that easy once you are in your 40’s and hormones and perimenopause becomes a contributing factor.  So the older I got, I started embracing my love handles, curves and have become comfortable with the way I look as long as my clothes still fit me.
