We’ve all heard that phrase, “Keto needs to be a lifestyle not a diet”. Well what does that really entail and how can you make it happen?
In the first of the new Mindset Matters episodes, Terri talks about how to really get to grips with making Keto or Low Carb (or any dietary change for that matter) part of your identity and how we can learn from the Vegan community.
Terri has been keto for over 3 years and Paleo for 2 before that. She struggled with being overweight or obese from age of 7 until about 5 years ago and tried all types of weight loss plans and diets throughout most of her adult life.
Diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in her early 30s, Terri was prescribed many medications, typically taking three for diabetes, a statin and an ace inhibitor. She no longer takes any prescriptions and no longer has any biomarkers of Type 2 diabetes.
Terri was a middle school English teacher at the start of her career; then went back to grad school and earned her PhD in Counseling Psychology. She was then a psychologist in private practice for over thirteen years.
Terri is now a coach with IDM’s The Fasting Method. She is the Director of Retreat Development and has hosted two fasting retreats in Hawaii.
