Hi guys! My name is Molly and I'm part of the Keto Bars Team. I'd like to share with you the reasons that I choose to live a keto lifestyle. After that, I want to share all of the AMAZING reasons that you (our customers) do. Let's get started...
I'm what you would consider petite (5'1" and 94 lbs), so you can imagine the look people give me when I tell them I'm on a "diet". I immediately feel like I need to explain that it's for health reasons and not for weight loss. I then tell them I'm epileptic and this diet helps to control seizures (seizure free for 8 years!). Also, the keto diet has lowered my anxiety and increased my focus and energy levels. Major bonus.
I've been on several medications for these problems and I absolutely hate the way they make me feel. I feel like they're slowing down my brain activity so much that I'm not even myself. I knew I needed to get off the pills and try something different. When I first heard about the keto diet, I was skeptical. I'm not one to follow a diet - for me, a little bit of everything in moderation was key. But then I saw the things I was allowed to eat and WHOA...this didn't seem so bad. The first few days were easy, the next few were hard and then I had a breakthrough. I felt completely different. It's like my whole body was blind and I just got glasses. Everything was brighter, clearer, crisper, and calmer. I thought, if this could so radically change my life, how can it change others?
That's when I got the idea to ask our Instagram followers why THEY follow the keto diet. The answers amazed me. Here are just a few...
