Diet/weight history? I have tried many diets over the years and was not successful. I have been obese most of my life and my weight has been increasing every year…until I started Dr. Tro’s Weight loss program.

Successes achieved on low carb? I have lost 95 pounds thus far!

How long have you been low carb? I started January 12, 2022

Why did you start low carb? To lose weight and improve my lifestyle.

How did you start? The company I work for started a pilot program with Dr. Tro.

How has keto changed for you over this time? I am no longer prediabetic. I have more energy and I feel great!

What do you struggle with? Weekends, getting my water intake, and exercising.

What do you love about low carb? I have no cravings and I am not hungry!

Top tip? If you have a bad day, it is okay, you are human. Pick up your head up and start again with three meals a day. Eat as much protein and green leafy vegetables as you need to be full.

Advice for people just starting out? Make sure you drink your water and eat three meals a day. Make sure you eat until you are full. Don’t be hard on yourself.

Favorite low-carb meal on the go? Pizza from Blaze Pizza on keto crust with meats and vegetables.

Favorite low-carb meal to cook? Steak, cheesy cauliflower, salad, a glass of almond milk and strawberries.

Favorite holiday/special occasion recipe? On Easter I had keto strawberry shortcake and on my birthday I had keto chocolate cake.

Favorite inspirational quote: “It’s important not to lose the real you. It’s important to find out who the real you is, and to love that person. That person is God’s great idea, His work of Art, His beloved masterpiece… that is you.” – Lacey Sturm

Anything else you want us to know about you? I am so excited that my company started the pilot program with Dr. Tro’s team, and I was selected. After I completed the application, I prayed that I would be selected. God answered my prayers and I was! I received a phone call from Dr. Tro’s office a few days before Christmas letting me know, I was selected. I am so grateful for Dr. Tro, Amy my coach and the rest of the team for supporting me through this journey. I am working hard to be successful for myself, Jesus, and my co-workers so that they can have a chance to do the program too. Looking forward to achieving more success!
