However, I feel a need to add a disclaimer at this point advising that I am not a medically trained professional or nutritionist what you are getting here is just the benefit of my own experience with the ketogenic diet.
Keto has been a steep learning curve for me, but the outcome of losing weight and finally being fit and healthy has made the journey so worthwhile.

So who is Rosemary?
Before continuing I should probably introduce myself. My name is Rosemary, and I’ve tried just about every diet I’ve come across over the years in a mission to try and lower my weight. Considering that I have seven decades under my belt that’s a lot of years dieting. The good news is I don’t have to do that anymore.
By purest chance I came across the ketogenic diet at the end of last year and since then, I’ve been able to lose weight and inches, gain energy, and get healthy. It’s the first time I’ve had a waist line in years and I am loving every minute of it.
Even though in my seventies, age is no barrier to what you can achieve on a keto diet and the health rewards are just endless.
One of my biggest obstacles in the past has been that I just don’t like cooking. Thee kitchen is not my favourite place in fact years ago my children voted “cheese on toast” as being my only specialty meal. However, that has all changed now and I am astounding friends and family with my new-found passion for cooking and prepping for meals.
