Client Success Story: Mohammed
“As an Arab, I’ve grown up on a diet excessive in carbs. It was not until my thirties that I, after research, realized that this was the reason behind my escalating weight. My health was also suffering due to my diabetes. I’ve watched family members die way too early due to poor health. I understood that this would be my fate too if I didn’t do anything.
Although death isn’t an exciting prospect, I was maybe even more scared of never visiting the beach again. For years, I’d felt too fat and uncomfortable to show myself in swim shorts. I was angry with myself. These were meant to be my best years, and I was wasting them missing out on life!
Reduced My Insulin Medication
My research led me to keto, which I understood could help both my weight and diabetes. My doctor was not excited about the idea but agreed to let me try. I found Alexia as the keto expert in the UAE, and I joined her program for safe and professional guidance.
What happened was incredible. By following Alexia’s advice while my doctor monitored my health markers, I drastically reduced my insulin medication in only weeks! I’d always thought that my diabetes medication was a lifelong doom, and now it felt like I was taking nature’s medicine.
Keto for My Arabic Taste
Most of the keto information online is catered to Westerners and their way of eating. I was worried that I’d have to give up the flavors of my culture and not find foods that I’d enjoy enough to stick to in the long run.
It turned out that this wasn’t an issue. Alexia helped me figure out how to adapt the keto meals to suit my taste buds. She taught me how I could make keto versions of most of my traditional Arabic dishes. It has helped me embrace keto as a lifestyle. I’m still eating an Arabic cuisine, except that this one is keeping me slim and healthy!
Losing Weight While Socializing
Before starting keto, I was concerned about how it would affect my socializing. I’m a social person, and a diet wouldn’t work if I’d had to sit at home counting calories. But what’s fantastic about keto is that it doesn’t feel like a ‘diet’ because it’s not restricting. I just need to know how to prepare myself or what to choose on the menu when I go out, and that’s precisely what I’ve learned from Alexia.
If anything, keto has improved my socializing since the fit version of myself is a lot more energetic, happy, and confident. And yes, I can go to the beach again – I’m finally free and making the most out of my life!”
