How Cindy lost 70 pounds on keto

I used to wake up four to five days a week
for such a severe headache.
I would wake up and my head could be
drawn back in such a pounding headache
that before I woke up,
I knew it was going to be a bad one.
I started following a low-carb lifestyle
when my sister Debbie Stokes
sent me the doctor Sarah Hallberg TED talk
where she talks about what if
we’ve been treating type 2 diabetes wrong.
First I thought it was
just going to be a diet,
something short,
something as a stopgap,
but what I found was it does much more
than help you lose weight.
It’s a metabolic rearrangement
and an internal healing process
I’ve been going through.
If we think about that type 2 diabetes
is a carbohydrate intolerance,
much like peanut allergies,
peanut intolerance,
isn’t it logical that we can reduce
our carbohydrates
therefore reduce the need for meds?
Because we can treat a blood sugar,
but we’re not treating the disease.
We’ve seen so much hope for people
with infertility problems,
so much hope just
in the low-carb community for people
when you regulate your carbs
and you increase your fats,
hormone production is normalized.
And when you can optimize that,
so many other things fall into place.
When you become a fat burner,
it was like someone turned on the lights
and I was like, “Ah, I feel amazing!”
And I wasn’t hungry and I wasn’t irritable
and I felt focused.
And it was just the first epiphany of many
of this to your journey.
This was me before low-carb.
So I was probably a little bit heavier there
and I thought I looked cute.
They see me at the educational event
and they’re like, “Huh!”
or they walk by me
and they don’t recognize me.
And they’ll be like, “What are you doing?”
Because I think one of the loudest voices
that we can have
is to just live the lifestyle
and let them see the changes.
I think if anyone out there
who is listening to this
at any point in time, in any remote way
has struggled like that,
the only way I can explain this
is I’ve been set free.
And I thought, “I won’t ever go back
into that bondage again.
I won’t do it.”
