Cooking Keto with Kristie

Hi I’m Kristie!  You may know me from my YouTube Channel Cooking Keto with Kristie or my Facebook page Simply Keto.  I use both of those sites to help others learn more about a low carb high fat or ketogenic way of eating.  So…who am I and why am I so passionate about this way of eating?

The short version is this:  I’ve been overweight, obese, or morbidly obese for 95% of my life.  I’ve also been dieting and/or starving during most of that time.  In June 2013, I was miserable because of my weight.  By the grace of God, a sweet friend suggested Gary Taubes’ book Why We Get Fat.  It resonated with my personal experience, so I decided to follow the eating protocol by Dr. Eric Westman that’s included in the back of that book. During the first 3 days, I was amazed at how I wasn’t hungry.  Within two weeks I knew I would never eat carbs again!  Fat is our friend–who knew???

My journey began at over 250lbs and continues with a roughly 100 lb weight loss.  I feel great; I’m off medications, and I’m able to enjoy my family.  What more could I want?  I want to help others discover low carb high fat.  I don’t want to sell anything nor am I out to make any money on this, but I very much want to help others figure out how to make this a lifestyle.
