October 7, 2018

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Sandra, talks about how she has overcome numerous chronic health issues with keto as well as helping her father do the same and steer her children through gastric health disorders.

Sandra Toll, also known as KetoCubana, is a wife and mother of two, who teaches Theatre at an urban arts high school in New Jersey. After a lifetime of struggling with weight, PCOS, infertility, insulin resistance, migraines, chronic fatigue, sleep apnea, and chronic pain, Sandra has found a new lease of life in a ketogenic dietary lifestyle. In Spring of 2016, she devoured the works of greats such as Mark Sisson, Nora Gedgaudas, Gary Taubes, Nina Teischolz, Maria Emmerich, Jimmy Moore, the 2KetoDudes and many more. Six months after starting keto, she had lost 60 pounds and had reversed many chronic health issues. Now keto for two and a half years, she has successfully coached friends and family members through a gentle and gradual transition from the S.A.D. to a low-carb/ketogenic approach, connecting them to resources for support.  This all primed her to address her children’s autoimmune and allergy issues through nutrition. As a teacher, Sandra’s strength is in sharing nutritional information with her community. She has discovered a growing passion and interest in the nutritional needs of children and nutrition for disease prevention. Sandra hopes to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner in order to further address the nutritional needs in her community.

September 6, 2018

Daisy’s latest extraordinary women, Katie & Vicky, talk about what it’s like to be new to keto, what they have learned so far and the benefits they are already reaping.

Katie Kelleher is a 34 year old from California who works in a job that every nerd girl dreams of. She’s suffered from body positivity issues most of her life, but she’s trying to turn that around and has even started her Curvy Girl Complications blog to bring to light both the humorous and serious issues of being a Curvy Girl. 

A self-proclaimed, prior sugar fiend, she realized something had to be done when sugar and carbs were making her sick. She heard of keto from a fellow volunteer for GreySave Greyhound adoptions and hasn’t looked back since. She and her boyfriend have both been keto since the end of April 2018. She has been blogging about their experiences since day 1.  

Vicky Brown is a 39 year old Canadian married mother of one living in Japan. As an elementary school teacher she needs as much energy as possible to keep up with her very energetic kids, not to mention her own 2 year old. 

After years of dieting, weight loss groups (such as Weight Watchers), vegetarian, finding out about slow carb, paleo, then primal which led her to hearing about low carb, she finally started “lazy” keto in April of 2018 together with intermittent fasting. 

She has lost about 5 kg, but regained 3 when she went back to America to visit family. Usually she gains much than 3 kilos so this is a bit of a NSV!

Her goals for starting keto are health related. She is currently fighting off a future type 2 diabetes diagnosis but losing weight is a nice bonus.

This week’s end quote is from C Joybell C…

We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.

This week’s end quote is from Nadia Bolz-Weber…

Many of us are tormented by our idea self versus our actual self. Between our ideal income and our actual income. Our ideal personality and our actual personality. Our ideal weight and our actual weight.

But here’s the thing.

No one’s ever become their idea self. It’s a moving target. It’s this mirage of water in a desert. You spend all your energy trying to get to it – and that just creates more thirst.

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Miriam, talks about her keto experience as an older woman and her new venture Granny Keto which she hopes to use to help many others like her.

Miriam Hatoum, also known as “Granny Keto, is a wife, mother, and grandmother of two – and also a lifelong dieter. For years she was scolded by doctors and was never believed when she said she was following dietary advice – a horrible cycle that started when she was just 13 years old!  Listening to Gary Taubes’ Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It was her lightbulb moment when, for the first time, she realized that the food itself was keeping her fat all these years and that it was not her fault. She began Keto that day and never looked back. As a certified nutritional coach, she addresses the needs and concerns of older women who are either doing Keto or are working on steps towards Keto. Both through her website and personal coaching, she offers these women help to navigate the waters of this new season in their lives.

 

She believes in KISS – Keep it Simple Sweetheart, and whether this new season brings you to cooking just for yourself or cooking for an entire extended family, Miriam and her husband have created easy, Keto, family-friendly recipes which you can find at Granny’s Table on her website, GrannyKeto.com.

Suzie Edge

August 1, 2018

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Suzie, talks about her busy life in Scotland as a junior doctor, mum, mountain hiker, and keto enthusiast.

Suzie Edge is a junior doctor based in Scotland where she works in Orthopaedic Surgery. After an earlier degree in Molecular and Cell Biology, Suzie joined a graduate programme at the Medical School in Aberdeen, but within a year of graduating and starting life as a doctor, she was pregnant with her first daughter. Despite lots of karate training, playing rugby and being in the Territorial Army and despite eating the prescribed “healthy” diet, Suzie gradually put on more and more weight.

She lives with her husband Derek, who is an accountant and mountain rescue team member, and their two daughters (aged 9 and 10). They escape to the mountains of Scotland whenever possible.

Suzie discovered low carb after her brother gave her a copy of The Diet Delusion by Gary Taubes (Good Calories Bad Calories in the US) and though she believed in the possibilities of low carb, she didn’t fully commit until early this year. Since doing so she’s lost 28 pounds and 4 inches from her waist.

 

Suzie is back into martial arts and is currently also studying for a Masters in Modern History of Medicine learning to research and to write in a non-clinical setting, which may lead to a book about lifestyle medicine and the future of the NHS.

She will talk endlessly about low carb to anyone who will listen: patients, colleagues, and mums at the playground. She is trying to work out how she can have more of an impact on the lifestyles of the patients and colleagues she meets at work.

This week’s quote is from JK Rowling…

We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.
