"Going low carb has been the best decision I've ever made." ~ Maikol's story
Weight loss: 40kg over 11 months
In Remission: Yes
I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember, but after seeing the doctor and being told I had heart disease, I knew something had to change.
I wasn’t interested in taking medication, and I was sick of feeling tired all the time. So, I started to research going low carb on YouTube and decided to give it a go even though it was against the advice of my GP.
I couldn’t believe how quickly things changed. I felt so good - I lost 20 kg in the first three months! The more weight I lost, the better I felt and the more I wanted to keep going.
There were a lot of little bonuses, too. After going low carb my skin became really clear, which it never had been before. I didn’t expect that to change, but it did.
Probably the best thing is I didn’t have to give up the foods I love, like steak. I now just add plenty of healthy fats like avocado, macadamia nuts, cheese and things like that to make it more filling.
Going low carb has totally changed my life. I’m now 40 kg down and counting, and I feel better now than I did in my 20s. I even started playing soccer again this year which I thought I’d never do!
I’m really glad I did my research and decided to follow my instincts. There are so many approaches to diet, but going low carb really has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
