Transformation of the Day: Kellie lost 89 pounds by adopting a Keto lifestyle. When she found out that her blood pressure was extremely high, and her blood sugar and A1C numbers were terrible, she knew she had to make some changes.
What was your motivation?
In March 2019, I received not so good news at a doctor’s appointment. My doctor informed me that if I didn’t get a handle on my weight, I would die at a young age. My blood pressure was through the roof! My Blood Sugar and A1C numbers were terrible! My doctor referred me to The Bariatric Clinic for surgery.
At the time, I weighed 319 pounds, and I needed to make a change! Instead of surgery, I said to my doctor, “I’ll see u in 6 months.” On May 1, 2019, I started the Keto lifestyle, and I had immediate results! I saw my Doctor in October 2019, and he was amazed, I had lost about 60 pounds at that point.

How did you change your eating habits as you transitioned to Keto?
I went into Keto “cold turkey”. I cut out most carbs and started eating just meat and vegetables cooked in healthy fats. I kept it simple in the beginning until I became comfortable. The weight just started falling off.
What did your workout routine consist of?
In the beginning, I did no exercise at all. After months of being on the Keto diet, I slowly incorporated core exercises, like crunches and sit-ups, along with lunges, squats, and some weight training.
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
When I started on May 1, 2019, I weighed 319 pounds. Now, I weight 230 pounds. I lost 89 pounds in 9 months!
