Video 19 – Suzanne’s Keto Success Story
If you’re still stuck in yo-yo dieting hades and you’re not sure a keto diet will work for you…or even if you finally decided to follow keto, but you need a little inspiration to keep going, today I want to share the very inspirational story of one of our Keto Decoded members.
Her success story is a great example of how stumbling upon a keto lifestyle and taking time to individualize a keto plan meant for her has forever changed her life! You can use some of the same strategies she uses to build a keto success story of your own!
Suzanne is a 48 year old mother of 4 who found keto a little over a year ago. Prior to finding a successful keto lifestyle, she struggled with yo-yoing weight and various diets since age 16. That’s more than 30 years of diet misery before she finally found a lifestyle that not only finally got her out of the never ending cycle of yo-yo dieting, but a lifestyle she also enjoys.
Some of the various diets she tried over the years include everything from taking laxatives in college, dexatrim, weight watchers, low fat, low calorie, and even liquid diets. Like a lot of yo-yo dieters, if you can name a trendy diet, she’s tried it.
Beyond struggling with weight loss for 30 years, she also had her gallbladder removed somewhere along the way. While many people who’ve had their gallbladders yanked won’t even consider a high fat diet, Suzanne still went into keto with high hopes! And her hope paid off since she lost more than 65 pounds in less than a year!
Suzanne started her keto journey off the right way by putting in the research to individualize her plan to help her get results! So many people hear about the amazing success stories on keto and they just go into the diet blindly. Following keto in this manner can lead to a high failure rate since a lot of people go into keto following advice that might be right for others, but can be disastrous for them!
Take having no gallbladder as an example. Doctors will take your gallbladder out, but many never explain your gallbladder’s actual purpose or the steps you should take after having your gallbladder removed.
Did you know your gallbladder stores bile to help you break down the fat you eat. So if you no longer have a gallbladder, yet you decide to partake in a high fat diet, how do you think that’s going to go for you without some knowledge and preparation?
You’ll likely be rushing to the bathroom several times daily singing everyone’s favorite song – Diarrhea Cha Cha Cha. Well, that’s if you make it to the bathroom in the 1st place. Eating too much fat without a gallbladder can make this situation quite urgent and unfortunately not everyone survives the long trip to the toilet.
Suzanne took the digestion course, which taught her how to live a successful keto lifestyle with no gallbladder in tact. Some of these tips can include ramping fat intake up more slowly and also supplementing with Ox Bile. These two steps can be life changing if you’re attempting to follow a keto diet without a gallbladder.
In fact, even if you’re following a mainstream diet and you don’t have a gallbladder, following these two tips alone can improve your day to day life in so many ways.
If you haven’t taken the 50 cent digestion course yet, this is a very important reason you should take it right away! Learning this info could change the quality of your life in so many ways…and it can also be a great starting point in you ultimate keto transformation.

Suzanne also started with a lazy keto approach.
As I talked about in my last video, this is really the best place to start for most people. Now I’m not saying that you shouldn’t attempt to improve your food choices overtime, because you absolutely should! The great thing about following keto is many times the desire to eat foods that are better for your health comes naturally. This means, like Suzanne, you can start where you currently are and follow a realistic plan based on your starting point.
This means you’re more likely to get to that place where you start adding foods you never previously would have eaten.
I hear from Suzanne often in our Keto Decoded support group, so I know first hand she’s including nutrient dense veggies in her keto plan that she previously didn’t even know what they were or how to cook! By starting a real food keto diet, her body now sees the value in these nutrient dense foods and her body craves them. Many other keto dieters find themselves in similar circumstances.
When anti-keto gurus bash our beloved high fat diet, it’s mostly because they don’t understand it. Most diet experts worth their weight in health knowledge tell you to follow a real food diet in order to find long term success. While Suzanne and many others like her, including yours truly, start out keto simply by lowering carbs, but still eating some of the same processed foods that got us into trouble in the first place, many of us naturally start to gravitate towards a diet rich in nutrient dense foods.
We begin to ditch the processed foods, yes even the low carb ones, and begin to incorporate more veggies and other nutrient dense powerhouses into our everyday diets. Even though many of us never previously ate these nutrient packed foods throughout our years of yo-yo diets, we now eat them regularly and even crave them!
Something else that led to Suzanne’s long term success is she put in the time to research…and she still continues to do so!
One of the reasons Suzanne found so much success with her new keto lifestyle, while others flounder after only a few weeks or months, is she continuously researches and uses that research to make the choices that are appropriate for her.
At the beginning of her keto diet, she found my book My Big Fat Life Transformation and read that. She also followed my advice to read Kick Your Fat in the Nuts, which is the book that helped me the most on my path to success.
While these books are jam packed with all of the strategies I followed to lose more than 100 pounds, Suzanne’s thirst for knowledge didn’t end there. She enrolled in my Coach Me Course, which is a 6 week course that details all of the elements I put into place to successfully form my current keto lifestyle and drop over 100 pounds. And while she was having great success following this advice, Suzanne’s quest to learn even more about herself still didn’t end!
Once we opened the doors to our Keto Decoded Membership, Suzanne went all in! In fact, she’d wake up early every day to review the course material inside of the Keto Decoded Membership. As soon as we released new course material, she was eager to learn even more!
All of this learning led not only to her 65 lb weight loss success story, but she also improved digestive issues she dealt with for years. On top of that, she is living a keto lifestyle she fully enjoys and is no longer stuck in her 30 year yo-yo struggle to lose weight and keep it off.
I still see Suzanne pop into our Keto Decoded support group almost daily and she continues to put in the time to research what’s right for her…even after finding so much success! I personally don’t feel like getting to your desired weight loss goal is a final destination, but it’s a lifelong journey. Getting the right information to help lead you down your long term success path is absolutely vital…and all of Suzanne’s success shows this to be true.
Now I’m not here to tell you that all of this research is absolutely necessary to find long term success…but I do see time after time that the people who put in the work to learn more about their bodies and their own situation find this type of success. They no longer hop from diet to diet. They no longer struggle to keep the weight off once they hit their goal weight. They finally find the food freedom they always wanted and find themselves living a lifestyle they truly love with amazing success to go along with it!
Just like Suzanne, I hopped from diet to diet for over 20 years. Just like Suzanne, I struggled. Just like Suzanne, even though I previously spent time researching every mainstream diet I could find and trying them out, I never found lasting success. At least not until I found the information we teach in the Keto Decoded membership. For the 1st time, this is all very easy.
After hearing all about Suzanne’s success story, I’ll bet you’re just as eager to learn more about your body and how to maximize your keto efforts. The good news is you can join Keto Decoded as well…but not for long. We’re getting ready to close our doors so we can focus even more on helping our members take their success to the next level. While our doors won’t remain shut forever, you can only gain access to the membership for a few more days.
Of course, once we decide to reopen our doors, we’ll let you know. But if you’re ready to see these results, right now…click the link to join Keto Decoded now before we close the doors.
I really hope Suzanne’s success story inspired you to keep learning more about YOU and how YOUR body operates so you can find this type of success on your keto plan.
