More About Louise & Keto Summit
My journey to Keto started before people called it "Keto."
In 2012, I was deep into the low carb movement, and I went on the Low Carb Cruise with Jimmy Moore. I still remember being introduced to the concept of a Ketogenic diet and being in "ketosis" by Dr. Eric Westman and Dr. Andreas Entfeldt while on the cruise. (1)
The LCHF (low carb high fat) movement was just taking off in Scandinavia back in 2012, and we joked about Norway running out of butter. Butter smuggling even became a "thing!" (2)
That was the start of my journey to long-lasting health and wellness, but only a few years previously I had been seriously unhealthy.
My health problems started during college...
I have a Bachelors and a Masters in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University in the UK. And I come from a line of scientists (on both my parents sides...in fact, I shamed the family by not getting a PhD!). You'd think my rigorous scientific background would have helped me realize the secret to health wasn't calories a bit earlier on, but nope!
I spent most of my time during college eating pot noodles, frozen chicken pot pies, cheese on toast, or counting calories excessively. My friends would hate going shopping with me because I would read the label of every product checking the calories.
Of course, I developed a slew of health issues in my early 20s...
- I had chronic heartburn and took daily doses of Prilosec for several years.
- I was finally diagnosed after 5 years of rashes and random swellings on my face with idiopathic angioedema (an autoimmune condition without any medically recognized cures). My doctor told me to take anti-histamine medication daily for the rest of my life.
- While getting my J.D. at Columbia Law School, I started putting on weight. I blame it on all the free pizza they gave out. All of a sudden I was 15 lbs heavier than I had ever been, and that was a significant amount for someone petite like me.
- During law school, I also started to suffer from bloating, gas, and diarrhea - IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). I never knew my stomach could swell after eating - it was seriously embarrassing.
- I was also exhausted during the day (especially after eating breakfast and lunch) to the point where I couldn't fathom how people could survive a whole day at work without taking a nap!
In the end, it was a desire to lose weight that drove me to low carb, Paleo, and now Keto
You'd think with so many health issues, I'd have been more motivated to find a solution. But I became quite satisfied with the medications my doctor put me on.
It wasn't until I finally started a low carb Paleo diet to lose the weight that I had gained in law school that I finally had my "AHA' moment.
I no longer had brain fog or felt like I needed a nap after each meal. For the first time in many years, I felt energetic and excited about life.
My chronic heartburn vanished (in just a few weeks).
My bloating disappeared and my clothes fit better. The weight slowly came off as well.
The digestive and autoimmune issues took longer to fix, but with the addition of gut-healing bone broth, supplements, autoimmune protocols, extra sleep, and de-stressing, I was finally able to kick those problems too.
I've been off all autoimmune medications (and all medications in general) for over 3 years now, and I feel so grateful every time I think about.
And it wasn't just me that benefitted from Keto...
Other Family Members and Friends Have Also Gone Keto
My father has type 2 diabetes (for several decades now), and after going on a Paleo/Keto diet, he was able to come off his insulin completely. His doctors were amazed!
My husband, Jeremy, first introduced me to a Keto diet. He's the one that loves researching and reading every single study. He's fascinated by what works and optimizing our lives.
For him, a Paleo/Keto lifestyle has helped him lose weight and gain muscle as well as stay productive.
Why do I do what I do?
Changing my diet was the first step in a journey that has had a profound impact on my life. Initially, all I cared about was losing weight. But by doing a healthy Keto diet filled with nutrient-dense foods and avoiding toxins like gluten, I suddenly started feeling amazing.
It was such a night and day shift that it forced me to question why I would choose to live any other way.
