Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Christine, talks about her “joyful keto life” – how she reversed her fatty liver, lost over 100lbs and is now able to do all the things she found hard to do before. She runs local meet-ups and also has a blog JoyfulKetoLife.com.
Christine, aged 51, is married to her college sweetheart and is the mother of two young adults in their 20s. They live in a suburb of Detroit with their two cats, Miki Roomba and Kitty. She’s known around her small town as “Keto Christine” and loves sitting down one on one over a cup of coffee with heavy whipping cream to share the amazing, healing benefits of her new lifestyle. She encourages people who are new to keto to – learn the science, apply the science and change your life!
Christine battled obesity for over three decades. She tried every weight loss program imaginable with no long term success and many years of frustration and disappointment. Just before her 49th birthday, she discovered that she had a fatty liver as well as the ovarian cysts she was having an ultrasound for. As she began to research the consequences of fatty liver she began learning about hormones and how a high carb diet was destroying her health.
A random google search about fasting and hormones, led her to the work of Jason Fung and the Diet Doctor website and she committed to a strict Keto diet with Intermittent Fasting. As a result, she has lost over 100 pounds and is now at a very healthy weight with healthy metabolic function.
Christine likes to joke she’s an “accountant turned blogger” and as a new writer, she’s exploring avenues to share the message of this healing lifestyle with a wider audience. Her website, JoyfulKetoLife.com, fulfils her passion to help inspire and motivate individuals in their own physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
