Client Success Story: Alexandra
A Life in Pain
Like so many others, I put on a lot of weight in the years following my move to Dubai. Over twenty kilos, to be more precise. I was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism and put on medication.
Along with the excess weight came inflammation in my body and horrendous pain in my legs. Every extra kilo crippled me a bit more until I could hardly live a “normal” life any longer. I had little energy to play with my kids, and the romantic walks that I used to enjoy with my husband were now only painful.
Followed Medical Advice with No Result
At the same time, I tried everything that I could to improve my situation. I saw several doctors and nutritionists and did whatever they told me to do. I didn’t drink alcohol, sodas, or eat junk food – I was following what I believed to be a “healthy diet”. And still, I only kept gaining weight. I was freaking out – I couldn’t live like this!
Inflammation Halved in 2 Weeks
Finally, one of my doctors recommended the keto diet to me. I sought out Alexia’s expertise since she’s working at a medical clinic, which gave me confidence that I’d have the best chance of success in her program.
I was nothing but amazed by how quickly my body responded to keto. My weight dropped, and my clothes got a looser fit on my body. Most exciting was the visible results on my swollen hands and ankles. I took the photos to the left before starting Alexia’s program, and the photos to the right after working with Alexia for a couple of weeks. My inflammation reduced by half!
What I “Knew” About Healthy Food Was Wrong
I can’t compare Alexia’s coaching program with my previous experience with nutritionists and doctors. Firstly, her program works and gives results! But equally important, Alexia has taught me HOW it works – so that I now know how to take care of my health and weight moving forward. It still blows my mind that so much that I’d been told about healthy eating was wrong!
The Solution Was So Simple
Part of me is sad that I wasted so many years of my life to be in pain when the solution was so simple: eating natural, low-toxin keto foods. But I’m mainly just glad to know the truth finally. And that I don’t have to feel like a failure any longer – it was nothing wrong with ME, it was the methods that were wrong!
Loving Life Again
It’s only weeks ago that I could barely leave my house because I was lethargic and in severe pain. Now, I just got back from a weekend get-away with my family during which I enjoyed swimming and long walks on the beach!
But what I’m most grateful for is that I can finally be present with the people who matter the most to me. Now with plenty of energy and pain no longer crippling me, I can be there for my family in a way that I haven’t been for years. And I will maintain my keto way of eating so that I can continue to be the best mother, wife, and person that I can be!
