Hello there! If you are reading this then you might be wondering who exactly is
Keto Steve? Well I started my Keto Journey back in January of 2016 and
when I first started I was kind of like you. I was sitting there wondering where
to start and what would really happen to my body.
In the beginning it was all just a “science experiment” if you will, I wanted to
see what would happen to my body if I cut down on carbs and sugar. Within
the first few weeks it was relatively difficult, I was so used to getting fries with
a burger that it was second nature to me. I had to reprogram my brain into
getting a side salad or veggie instead of fries. The good news is that over time
my body got with the program and adapted to the new diet. Thankfully I didn’t
get the “keto flu” as it’s called, I can’t really speak to how I avoided it but I
guess I’ll just chalk it up to pure luck.
After a month on the diet I lost roughly 10-15 pounds which I honestly thought
wasn’t possible. All my life I had never really been a big kid but apparently I
had weight to lose and off it came. I had to start buying smaller clothes and
wearing belts which I hadn’t done since I was a kid. It was kind of a surreal
experience for me, this whole science experiment had a hypothesis I never
thought could happen.
With this new lifestyle came a desire to cook more of my own food instead of
constantly eating out. I came to appreciate the cooking process more and it
made me hyper-analyze what I was putting into my body. One thing kind of
led to another and I started posting my food on Instagram. In the beginning it
was just for fun and figured I could provide some inspiration for others. Over
time people started to take notice and began asking me for recipes or if I had
a website. I was at a fork in the road, keep it casual or turn up the heat and
start taking things seriously.
Long story short I made a website then began creating recipes and gained a
following on Instagram. Like I said, it was all just for fun in the beginning, but
for me it’s more about helping others and sharing my story. It’s important to
know that this doesn’t have to be a journey you do alone. Don’t be afraid to
reach out to others and ask for guidance or advice. We’re all on the same
team when it comes to self-improvement and 9 times out of 10 our objectives
are the same, to get healthier.
When I was first starting out I wasn’t afraid to email dieticians, doctors or
whoever would respond to my questions. If you’re out fishing with 20 different
fishing poles the chances of you getting a bite on a line is relatively high.
Heck, I’m by no means a health professional but the very least I can do is
share my experiences with you or refer you to someone who is better
equipped to assist you.
With that being said I do hope that I was able to inspire you in some way. It’s
never too late to make a change, especially when it comes to your healthy.
Take care of your body in the best way you can, because it’s the only one
