Mats Lost 66 Pounds: “Keto Works”

Mats lost 66 pounds: “Keto works”

Mats was suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, excess weight and sleep apnea. But then one day he fell in love - and was introduced to the keto diet:

In the spring of 2017, I met my girlfriend Mia, who has been on a keto diet for seven years.

I did not have a particularly healthy lifestyle and was at 220 pounds (110 kg). I was on two blood-pressure medications, statins for high cholesterol. I was also diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I had high blood pressure and snored heavily. I was suffering from sleep apnea. I was tired, lacked energy and was depressed. It was a good thing that I had a dog, so I did take walks.

I will continue to eat this way, as I have realized that this is a lifestyle that probably saved my life.

When I met Mia, I was curious about her way of eating and she told me about the health improvements you could experience from the diet. She has read up a lot on keto and has followed Diet Doctor since she started a keto diet seven years ago. She made med realize that I could get rid of my health problems and have more energy. When I started I noticed that it was pretty simple and results came quickly. I stayed satiated longer and had more energy. I started going to the gym. I came off my medications and after eight months, I had lost 66 pounds (30 kg)!

All thanks to the keto diet and a lot of love. I will continue to eat this way, as I have realized that this is a lifestyle that probably saved my life.

Regards,
Mats Berghäll
