Edit: translated from Dutch
I had read an article about keto in a magazine. It was about a woman my age who experienced less peri-menopausal symptoms because of keto. I visited my GP a few weeks later and I told her I had some of those symptoms: not sleeping very well, my tummy always seemed bloated, and I kept gaining weight despite eating right and lots of running. I asked her if she had heard of keto and she immediately said that it would be a very good idea for me to try it. Interesting, because I actually expected her to be against it.
I did not want to do this on my own, so that is how I found Sevi. And I have learned so much from her in such a short time, not just about what to eat but also for example how I could get better sleep. She also told me all the running I did wasn’t such a good idea, cortisol goes up and weight loss gets more difficult because of that. On her advice I reduced the running and started training with light weights instead.
I already feel better: I sleep well, with the exception of a few nights here and there, the food is lovely and I notice my stomach area is less bloated and my clothes fit better. I have no idea if I have actually lost weight because that is something else Sevi has taught me: to stop the weighing and instead look in the mirror and see how clothes fit. And I do see some changes already that make me very happy.
In hindside I could have perhaps figured this out myself but getting the correct information from the start without having to look it up all the time is worth its weight in gold. And Sevi is a lovely coach, very much involved and always prepared to listen to you.
