My name is Gita.
I am a proud wife, mother and IT professional in the DC/Metro area. I started this site because I found a method to lose weight rapidly and I wanted to share my experience with others. My hope is that this site is easy to understand and provides you with the necessary information for you to begin your own journey. Please keep in mind that I am not a medical professional, nutritionist, dietitian. I am simply a regular person who did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions before, during and after keto. Along the way, I took notes and tracked my progress.
FIRST: I want to emphasize that my experience can be consider Keto for Weightloss and NOT Keto for Medical Conditions (KFMC). The Ketogenic diet is widely prescribed for a variety of conditions childhood epilepsy, high blood pressure, Hashimoto’s, PCOS and many more. I completely acknowledge that the KFMC patients follow a strict ketogenic diet which often excludes ingredients and products that may be allowed for those who are doing the keto diet for weight loss. This site, focuses on Keto for Weight Loss (KWL) meaning that it is intended for, otherwise, healthy individuals who are looking to lose weight and possibly change to a new way of eating.
GOALS: Quick. Easy. Minimal Ads – The goal of this site is to help you quickly get up and running with the ketogenic diet. There are already tons of ketogenic sources that have great information and I will simply link you directly to those sources instead of recreating the same content. This is a great way for you to get acquainted with resources for the ketogenic diet.
AFFILIATIONS: I am not currently affiliated with any diet pill company, supplement company, dietitian, doctors office etc. I do provide info and a link to supplements I take and explain their specific purpose as it relates to the Ketogenic Diet. I use an Amazon Associate account meaning that if you purchase any products from the links I provide, you will still get the same great Amazon price as anyone who doesn’t use the link. The difference is that Amazon will pay me (small) referral fee. My intent is to use all the earned referral fees to continue to support/develop this site (domain registration/hosting fees/template/SEO).
PROGRESS BLOG – Before I start the progress blog, where I share my journals, photos, progress metrics I would like to help others get started. The progress blog is not yet up but as soon as I feel good about the Get Started guide, I will start entering the journals.
