Daisy talks to her latest extraordinary woman, Carolina Cartier, who shares her incredible story from being told she would never conceive to becoming pregnant with twins.

 

Carolina was diagnosed with precocious puberty at only 3
years old and then PCOS at 13. Her weight climbed to 380
pounds (172 kg) at its highest point. Working as a financial
analyst, she was constantly tired, foggy headed, short-
tempered and just downright miserable. She discovered the
ketogenic diet in 2014 and lost 120 pounds (54 kg) over two
years.

Even more surprising, after 19 years of no ovulation
or cycles due to PCOS, she started cycling after only four
months on keto. She is currently pregnant with
spontaneous twin boys.

 

Carolina’s top tip was a quote from Karen Lamb –

A year from now you will wish you
had started today

Wellness website and touch base with Carolina on her Facebook page.

This week Daisy welcomes extraordinary woman Erin MacFarland, a mother of two, who discusses her recovery from anorexia nervosa and exercise bulimia.

Erin MacFarland

Erin is a 36 year old mother of two who works part time for a local food co op, and studied sociology in college. She was diagnosed in March of this year with anorexia and exercise bulimia  and began recovery six months ago. Erin is especially keen to share what it has been like to have this disease later in life whilst raising a family. She started keto in 2015 after reading about its ability to improve athletic performance. She had taken up running after her second child was born, which she now realises was actually a symptom of her already-thriving eating disorder. She is keen to share how her eating disorder progressed and why keto affected her body in a negative way at the time but also how it addressed some health issues that had been bothering her for ages. Once she realised how easily she lost weight while eating keto, Erin had to change her approach to eating this way and manages now to eat a modified version of keto.

This week, Daisy talks to her latest extraordinary woman, Jessica Shotwell Walker, who discusses her recovery from PCOS and T2D plus how she rediscovered her inner warrior through dragon boating and now coaches others to do the same.

Jessica is a housewife and mother of two from Atlanta. She empowered herself by starting the ketogenic way of eating over 10 years ago and has since recovered from type 2 diabetes, PCOS and debilitating plantar fasciitis. Jessica has continued to maintain her 65lb weight loss and no longer takes diabetes medications. In her 50th year she is the energetic athlete she always wanted to be. Jessica loves tennis almost as much as dragon boat racing and plays in two leagues – USTA and ALTA. She and her USTA doubles team have earned her a spot at the USTA Georgia State Championships for the second year in a row.

She continues to be an inspirational role model in her community and was named Rotarian of the year 2016-2017 for the Rotary Club of Peachtree City Georgia for her outstanding work with her dragon boat teams. She coaches people from all walks of life (her favourite students being the absolute beginners) to work as a team in dragon boats and then go on to race. You can see photos and videos of Jessica in action training on the Rotary Club of Peachtree City Dragon Boat Festival Facebook page.
