Starting a weight loss mission can be scary, and that’s why I’m so glad that I did it together with Alexia. With her, there was no guesswork. She offered feedback on my progress and clear instructions on which step to take next to continue losing weight – which I started doing my very first week in the program!
She gave me a ketone meter so that I could check that I was on track with ketosis in between our sessions. When I’ve been trying to lose weight on my own, I’ve given up because I could never be sure if the results were coming. Being able to check my blood at home and see black on white that I was in fat-burning mode took away my insecurities and motivated me to continue!
Sharpest Mind Since Uni Days
I’d tried doing keto on my own following online advice, and I’d only felt sluggish. Alexia’s direction gave a whole other result: my brain switched on, and I haven’t felt this mentally sharp since my uni days! My productivity has gone through the roof; I get so much more done in a day now when I’m on keto.
Even better is the confidence that my new mind has given me. My second week on keto, I got a speaking work opportunity. In the past, I would have declined because I was too shy. I hardly believed myself when I now said yes! I wasn’t even nervous on stage, and I felt so proud of myself afterward.
My Autistic Son Feels Better
I’ve researched how keto can improve autistic symptoms, so I was keen to help my son diagnosed with autism. Alexia guided me on how to make keto fun and tasty so that he was happy to try.
I was amazed by my son’s personality change when switching the diet: in only days, his aggression disappeared, and he became calmer and happier. It’s both scary and wonderful to notice what a difference food does to a child’s wellbeing. I’m so grateful to now know how to feed my children so that they can have the best chance at a healthy life!
Going to the Root of the Weight Problem
What I learned from working with Alexia is that excess weight is a symptom of underlying issues, and if I want to get rid of the extra kilos for good, I need to go to the root of the problem. I was surprised that I signed up to a keto program and got a complete life makeover!
Throughout our sessions, Alexia guided me while we explored why I’d been letting myself go. I noticed that it wasn’t just physically, but in other areas of my life too. Just like I’d been eating in excess to stuff down my anxiety, I’d been shopping too much, and my finances were a mess. I’d never saved in my life or reviewed my finances – it was too frightening.
A Brand New Me!
With Alexia holding my hand in the process, I finally dared to face reality. I made a budget, started saving, and took control of my finances. Like magic, my nervousness disappeared, and I was filled with a sense of empowerment instead. It might sound strange that financial responsibility can be linked to weight loss, but the peace of mind that I now have from my money management makes it easy to stay away from comfort eating.
Alexia’s coaching didn’t just give me some standard keto advice that I could have found myself online. No, she helped me change into a person who takes excellent care of herself – so that I’ll keep those extra kilos away for good!
