Turn keto into a lifestyle rather than a strict diet.

At Hip2Keto, we believe that keto is truly a lifestyle rather than a number-crunching diet. A perfect embodiment of the lifestyle is Hip2Keto reader, Candi. Her focus on simply sticking to keto-friendly foods rather than worrying too much about the numbers has helped both her and her husband find weight loss success along with other health benefits.

Read her story below:

I started keto back in March of 2018. My husband, Eric, joined me a month later. We have never felt better and have lost a combined total of 120 lbs. We don’t count macros, just only eat keto-approved foods.

He works a physical job and goes to the gym several days a week. I didn’t start exercising till around halfway through, but now I walk three miles, on a hilly road, around 3 or 4 times a week. Eric is at his goal weight, but I have about 40 more lbs to go!

Hip Tip: Check out these tips to crush your workout on keto!

Weight loss so far? 60 lbs.

Any struggles with sticking to keto? Working next door to a donut shop. 😂

Tips to share for success? When I crave sweets, we make something with an alternative sweetener instead of sugar.

Benefits outside of just weight loss? Less snoring, more energy, and no need for a daily nap.

    Good for you. Exactly what I’m doing, so I really don’t feel so deprived and still cheat once in a while and then go right back to eating Keto friendly foods. I may not lose as fast, but it is constant.
