6 Month Weight Loss Transformation – Low Carb Keto Diet Success

Hello and welcome back to my Channel today I have my six-month weight loss transformation update to share with you. It’s been six months, a half a year that I’ve been on the low carb keto diet and what a transformation it’s been. I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone but then this just feels natural to me, it’s just my life, it’s just the way that I eat. I just I love it so much and today I’m gonna share all my journey with you the ups downs how the past month has gone and all of that. So, yeah another month has sped by it’s been an interesting month because there have been a couple of experiments happening first of which if you watched my video last month I was going to experiment with playing around with having less dairy. So, instead of having dairy with breakfast lunch dinner and then snacks and in between and more and dairy all the time I cut back and I had some days with no dairy and I had some days where I just tried a little bit so I could really see how I felt after different types of dairy. It was a very interesting experiment I discovered butter agrees with me, you know i love my butter, so butter i can i’m keeping in my diet, awesome! Little bits of cheese agree with me, too much cheese and i get a sore tummy. So it’s been good experimenting. Brie and other soft cheeses agrees with me. Cream, sour cream and mascarpone, every time I have I don’t feel so great afterwards so eliminating it and playing around and good i’m going to give myself a break from those kinds of dairy for a while and then like reintroduce and just play around again i’m not saying this as a prescriptive measure you shouldn’t go out and copy what i’m doing but i’m just sharing what’s works with me and i’m experimenting myself and as always i share what happened and how my experiments work so going forward yes i’ll be including dairy in my diet and playing around having a little bit more little bit less going dairy free days just experimenting as i feel. Butter is always included and i’m also taking supplements, the supplement I take with electrolytes every day also has calcium in it so I’m not really concerned about having no calcium. if you are to cut out dairy go and definitely chat with your doctor, health professional if you’re thinking of cutting out dairy and look into supplementation to make sure you don’t miss out on calcium or any other important elements that your body needs so that was experiment number two number one getting ahead of myself experiment number two was playing around was not weighing myself, well attempting to not weigh myself which went really well for two weeks and at the two week mark I was just too curious because of all the dairy cutting out and I wanted to see what happens so I stepped on the scale after two weeks and I lost a kilo, 2 pounds which I was really happy with and because in the past I’ve been losing about a kilo a month so a kilo in two weeks I was very happy with and then I kind of just vowed to weigh myself once a week not daily and so then in the past past few days actually there’s been a further experiment which I might touch on today and then go into in further detail in future videos because obviously cutting out so much dairy and I felt I’ve needed more and I played around it adding more fat but that hasn’t really helped, just it hasn’t done too much so I’ve been playing around with adding a smidge more carbs. Now my carbs up to that point, I don’t actually count my macros every day the days that i do i’m usually between 18 and 25 grams of carbs which is keto low-carb super low carb and I dunno I’ve just felt in me that I want to increase that a lot, not going high carb, anything under 100 grams of carbs is technically considered low carb, keto usually under the 50 gram mark so I’d say I am somewhere between 25 and 50 grams the last couple of days and the first day when I increased my carbs the next morning I stepped on the scale overnight I lost point 9 yep just under a kilo about two pounds overnight by just increasing my carbs and I didn’t go crazy I didn’t crack open a loaf of bread I just had a bit more vegetables and when I have my strawberries for a snack instead of I instead of having four strawberries I went crazy and had 8 strawberries so I’m just the carbs i had through the day I just upped it so when I had my veg I put a bit more veg on my plate or instead of usually I’ve been having one veg with each meal I had two veg with each meal for that for it’s just been a couple of days so we very early into the experiment but I’m going to be seeing how I feel and how the scale move I’m again not going to try and weigh myself daily but I’m going to weigh myself more frequently to see how this experiment is going with increasing towards the 50 gram mark again this isn’t a do what I do this is listen to your body I felt there was something missing it’s difficult to explain I felt there was something missing and I thought well I am gonna play around with my carbs and if over the next few days having fiftyish grams of carbs instead of 25 I’ve put on weight I’ll think about it but losing and losing and then the next day stay in the same it kind of makes me think maybe I need to up my carbs for a bit and still be keto still be low carbs but just play around with my numbers it’s an experiment I’ve always said that this diet is awesome I love this way of eating I gravitate towards low-carb high-fat foods now and I don’t see that changing for a time to come but I’m always open to experimenting and listen to my body and doing what I feel for this diet to be sustainable in the long term and it’s going to continue changing and I thank you for joining me on this journey and just yes make sure you subscribe what you’re not the end of the video! Yeah so, going forward I am going to just keep experimenting with my carbs I might film a video more documenting how I am increasing my carbs leave a comment let me know if you’re curious about increasing carbs on Keto and still losing weight but again I’m not reaching for pizza, pasta, bread nothing like that it’s more having more veggies and I think I might even try a few more fruits and be a bit crazy as well and it also i’ve also been thinking of upping my carbs and being a little bit more risky because I’m going to Japan in a couple of weeks. I know i talk about it every month but it’s it’s yeah it’s coming in a few weeks I’m going to be jetting off to Japan and I am going to try my utmost to keep low carb high fat but when I go to the market and I see beautiful exotic fruit I want to know I can have fruit and vegetables and feel okay so I’m happy kind of upping my limit just to be able to enjoy that I’m not going to be having noodles and dumplings and all that I’ve actually got no desire for it so I’m going to be going there keeping low carb high fat documenting it all sharing the journey with you but I just want to know that if I go and eat a bit of meat and it maybe it’s marinating something which is higher carb I’m not going to feel awful because I’m kind of slowly edging towards high carbs I hope that makes sense it’s what I’m doing again I’m just sharing the journey as I go really honest and raw and open unedited me. I thought i’d share Interesting incident which happened through the month which really made me realize how I how much weight I’ve lost. I was on a train with my kids to the city and usually, it’s a bit embarrassing, usually on train seat I have a little bit of spillage, you know I’ve got quite a bottom and so usually when I sit on the train there’s my seat and I take over a little bit of my neighbors seat it’s a bit embarrassing but you know and so I caught a train with the boysto the city usually a combat by placing one of the children next to me so yeah they’re taking up the seat and like no one really has to notice yeah anyway and what happened was we were on the way to the city and the boys decide they want to sit next to each other so there’s two and two seats the boys sat next to each other and I was by myself, didn’t really think about anything and then a man came and sat next to me and initially I was mortified because I thought oh my gosh I’m taking up half a seat and then I realized I wasn’t he was in his seat and I was in my seat and somehow my bottom was contained to one seat and I it was such an awesome feeling an awesome moment almost wanted to tap him on he shoulder and say hey look see! Own seat! Yeah look at me! but I didn’t!I had a little party in my brain instead. It just it felt awesome it felt amazing and it just reassured what I’m doing and just I was it was one of those like happy little moments which I just know that I really I’m just so thankful for the weight I’ve lost and yeh look forward to seeing where my journey takes me in the future so overall what did I actually lose in six months my total weight loss for six months is 15.4 kilos which is about a little over 33 pounds in six months which I am over the moon about the last month I lost two ish kilos about four pounds. I have to keep converting. And I feel awesome i feel so much energy I’m 35 I feel like I have more energy than I had in my 30s and my 20s I feel awesome I’m feel so energetic I feel so much smaller. Oh! before I after photos mustn’t forget those. so I took pictures this morning I’m just everywhere this morning. I took photos this morning I took photos this morning in my yellow top so let’s do some before and after so before in my yellow top over here. I just look sad I was in just such a sad place and I just needed to do something and Keto was it and now today me in this yellow top my waist my chest my face my eyes my happiness level is just through the roof I just I can’t speak highly enough of the diet and how it’s changed my life and really saved my life it’s just been awesome and looking at the before and after photos just it just reassures to me that what I’m doing is working and I’m looking great and I’m feeling great and I’m going to be continuing on this for the time coming for the foreseeable future and I hope that you’ll join and subscribe if you’re not already join the yummy inspirations community leave any questions comments down below and I’ll be sure to answer them and also I’ll leave a blog post down below with more of my thoughts about six months on Keto I hope that you’ll give that a read and yeah thanks so much again for watching if you don’t already know I’ve also actually got an e-book called the Quick Start to Keto guide it’s on amazon i’ll leave a link down below to that as well and if you don’t have a kindle you can also download a free app to be able to read it.

    Excellent work! The images show a more dramatic difference…the scale can't weigh that. Looks like 50% less of a person in ONLY 6 months. Just to pass on a thought. I watched this sports guy yesterday and he said to remain in ketosis for only 4-6 weeks then cycle out (bit more carbs) then back in. Just what I watched. Fat takes 4 times more volume per (kg or lbs) than muscle.

    Good work, such a great difference. I do believe that butter actually doesn't contain dairy if you look it up you'll see lots of places say this. I find that soft cheeses are not good for tummy issues but try hard cheese I find it doesn't effect me as bad. Good luck! 😊

  5. Jennifer Marie

    wow you look great! good work πŸ™‚ I would love to hear about your experiment…I've been experimenting with different things and it's nice to see other people's experience with tweaking their keto diet

  6. Tita Linda

    Congratulations, you look gorgeous!,, I started two months ago and have lost 5 1/2 kilos! On your trip to Japan, do and eat all you want, take advantage of your trip, but really not to worry much, the japanese eat very healthful food, things are mostly boiled, compared to chinese food, which is mostly fried. Best wishes good looking!!πŸ‘πŸ‘

    I just thinking to start this kind of diet, but honestly I don't know how to start. I'm watching a lot of videos trying to get as much information as possible but still I'm so confused, because I don't know if it is going to be a good idea or if it is going to work for me. Your transformation is amazing and I hope to achieve good results like you.πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ˜‰

    I don't know if you already watch her but healthful pursuit here on yt is super helpful her stance is women do need some carbs for hormonal reasons I'd really recommend listening to her podcast and reading her website.

    I also increased my carbs to 35-45 gram of total carbs daily after becoming fat adapted. I am very active and go to the gym 5-6 times a week. I wasn't feeling well and adding more carbohydrates helped a lot. I basically added more vegetables. I watched a YouTube video by Jeff Volek Ph.D where he said most people can remain in ketosis if their total carbohydrates are less than 50. It did not hinder my weight loss. For some very carb intolerant, this might not work. Keep us posted. I loved your "bottom" story. Congratulations. How much have lost in your waistline? You look amazing. What a difference

    I had been Keto for about three months and just didn't feel right. My carbs were under 25/day but just didn't feel very well. I was still tired and almost felt like I was going to have a heart attack! I upped my carbs and felt WAY better. So now, I have been doing "Keto" meals and then once a day I will have more of a "Carb" meal and I have been feeling amazingly better and have lost more weight doing it this way. I find it important to keep Carbs and fats separated. It's been great!

  13. Sheba's World

    Wow you look awesome! You're doing so good on the Keto diet! Thanks for sharing the side by side before and after photos, you can really see the difference in how much weight/inches you've lost thx for the motivation/inspiration! 😊 πŸ‘ πŸ‘

  14. Linda Charron

    Congratz on the 1 seat bottom train ride. That would feel do awesome.Β  oh a Kilo = 2.2 lbs, so you are losing a few more pounds that you are taking credit for. Great job, inspirational.

  15. CarnOMAD

    No joke: the ad that played between your story of the seat on the train and the before/after photos was for Olive Garden''s $6.99 bottomless pasta bowl.

    It was surreal.

  16. ThaynΓ‘ Bergamini

    Oh my gosh you look amazing your body changed so much! I'm really considering doing this diet and changing my lifestyle, but I find it so hard! Congrats on your achievements

    i starting to low carb diet..but its hard bcause in indonesia we get used to eat rice almosts 3 time meal of day..😨
    but i try to eat brown rice and cut off the portion..and eat only lunch meal….

    I personally like to give myself a "carb day" once a month and by carb day I mean just at dinner and it will be something like…a good burger…or including rice and naan bread with my curry. I have no desire to be in ketosis. I don't see.the sense in it for myself as I do have a major insulin resistance problem and an endocrinologist that I saw told me to.make the necessary diet changes but that (he told told point blank) I also had to eat for enjoyment and to forget dieting because I will have this problem for the rest of my life. So, luckily…I enjoy fats and meats and vegetables and so on. I do love fruit but I have been able to give it up so that's good. Everyday, except for one day of the month at dinner time…I have some bad carbs…and I kinda.feel bad about it but.then I come to my senses and remember that it's just one meal out of the month…so this has been an effective way to me to stop myself from binging or always craving carbs…because I know that in a month I can eat bad carbs.Sorry for the long message just felt like sharing I LOVE your videos. its makes me feel like I have support.None, of my friends or family eat this way because they all.think its crazy, I on the other hand am.feeling all the benefits of this high fat low carb lifestyle: )

    I like the train story. I have a problem with the bottom spillage so I can't wait to not have that problem. On my second week of keto and I can suck my stomach in….if only I could suck my hips in lol!

  20. Patricia Moerdyke

    You crack me up….in front of my computer…alone….laughing out loud. It's as if you're talking directly to me. Great, great personality Jolene! What an amazing transformation since your weight loss…you look so good and healthy now. Keep it up!

  21. Jessika B.

    You absolutely are looking more and more beautiful with every video! I'm loving your energy and excitement and I'm praying for you much and consistent success! XOXOXO

  22. Sasha Ramcharan

    How much did you lose within 1 month? and did you do any exercise? I've been doing this for 2 months now but only seeing minimal results? How much us your daily allowance for carbs before you started your increase in carbs ?

  23. Zena Martin

    I have been on LCHF eating plan for 3 months and have not lost any weight. I have been very strict about my food and am so enjoying this way of eating. I am two to two and half stones overweight and would love to know where I am going wrong.

  24. Heartz

    I love your blog! It really helps me understand that this diet is doable….Diets usually intimidate me so I really appreciate your video's…
