A Little About Me
Hello and welcome to Keto Program Rocks, I hope we are going to become well acquainted and that you will find if not everything, at least the basics of what you need to help you get started on your Ketogenic journey, to a fitter and healthy lifestyle.
My name is Rosemary and I am based in Brisbane, Australia. To give you a bit of background I have seven decades under my belt, was born in the UK and emigrated to Australia in 1975. I worked for the government for many years, then had a few battles with the big C and had to take an early retirement some years ago.
That you are never too old to change.
That you are in control of yourself.
That we always strive to improve our lives.
That age shouldn’t be seen as a deterrent.
I am not a very physical person and was always conscious of having to watch my weight in addition to dealing with a few medical problems that cropped up along the way.
Without going into too much detail if I wanted to enjoy my senior years I had to find some way that I could feel better, get some energy (the nana naps were getting out of hand) and if I could lose weight that would be a bonus. After all I had started playing a musical instrument and wanted to have some fun time.
Why listen to me?
Over the years I had tried just about anything that came my way, but nothing really worked, and then I started Keto in January 2018 and haven’t looked back since. I have lost 16 kgs so far, a total of 20 inches overall and energy levels are through the roof.
An unexpected bonus was the complete disappearance of the Osteo-Arthritis in my hands, so if any of you are on the fence and suffer with this handicap, it might be worth having another think of the possible benefits to be gained.
Initially it is hard to get your head round the Low Carb High Fat concept, but once you do it all starts to make sense. So much so that I wanted to share my journey with others through this website, and though there have been a few obstacles on the way and I have briefly fallen off a couple of times, that is OK you just pick your self up and take the next step forward.
I am not a huge fan of cooking but my family have been astounded at how I have got on board with recipes and prepping my meals. I’ll be sharing some of those recipes with you along with some of my very favourite authors and cooks.
Advertising and Affiliate Links
Whilst browsing my site you will find the occasional advertising links to products I’ve used and other websites that I have found helpful in managing my ketogenic journey. In some instances, if you click on the link to view the item or site and then decide to buy what’s offered I may receive a small commission. I just like to be upfront, so you know exactly what’s what.
I’m not going to sugar coat this journey and say it’s all plain sailing but if you want to succeed and you are dedicated enough to knuckle down and get stuck in I will be here holding your hand and advising or making suggestions that could help.
Lets work together….
