You don’t have to live with your health problems forever. A good and healthy lifestyle will let you live a full and meaningful life. Listen to Kimberly Laret’s success story with Speed Keto, and discover how something as simple as taking up a new diet plan helped her overcome her health problems and take back control of her life.
What made you decide to try Speed Keto? Who inspired you to try Speed Keto?
Kimberly Laret: Well, I was at a Christmas party, and I saw my friend there, Kelli Costello. When I saw her, my jaw dropped. I mean, she lost 25 lbs, and she looked amazing! She told me she felt terrific. I was listening to her, and I was like, “There’s no way I can do this!” Back then, I was just huge. I was recently divorced. I took three meds for my blood pressure, and I had a child with an incurable genetic disorder. So, you know, my life was not going well back then. But that’s when I realized I had to take my health back. I had to take my life back, not just for myself, but for my sons!
So, I reached out to Kelli, and I began my Speed Keto journey on January 16, 2020.
How did you feel while doing Speed Keto? Did you feel better, worse, or the same? Did you notice any health benefits?
Kimberly Laret: Oh, I’m still doing Speed Keto. I’m still working to reach my goal. You know, at the start, I had the keto flu, but at the same time, I also realized that I didn’t need my meds for three weeks! So, when I got to the doctor, he let me get off one medication. I feel amazing! Because of Speed Keto, I have more energy. I don’t get body aches. I don’t have swelling.
I reached Round 3 when COVID-19 came to town. But of course, I didn’t let that stop me. I started exercising with my son. Every day I feel myself getting stronger, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I can’t even tell you how amazing I feel.
How would you rate the level of support that you receive from the Speed Keto Facebook group moderators and group members?
Kimberly Laret: It’s just fantastic. I’m in this group, and they always keep things real with me. They keep you motivated, and they answer your questions very quickly. And if you still have more questions, they’ll point you to all the resources you need.
You know, I’m seeing a lot of people in my situation. I have a lot to lose, myself. And, you know, just knowing that others like me are accomplishing their goals pushes me to keep working on it! They help me realize I can do it, too.
Tell us about the flexibility of the plan. How did you fit Speed Keto into your lifestyle?
Kimberly Laret: You know, when I cook dinner, I just love that I can switch ingredients. I like to keep things simple. I work full-time, and I also volunteer for some organizations. And my kids are multi-sport athletes. So, I needed a program that gave me a lot of options for meals.
So, for my kids, I pack them chicken salad for baseball or basketball, for example. For myself, I’ll have MCT coffee for my commute. This plan is just so livable. I can’t even believe it.
What are your current weight or health goals while doing Speed Keto? How did they change?
Kimberly Laret: My goal is 185lbs. So far, I’ve already lost 113lbs., and now I’m just 9lbs away from wonderland! I mean, right now, I’m at my smallest and healthiest as an adult. I know I still have a little way to go before I reach my goal. But, look, I’ve been hitting my goals one by one. First, I wanted to get off my BP meds and boom!
I also want to finish a half marathon by the time I’m 50. I’m 48 now! I will walk it someday. On my 40th birthday, I did join a half marathon. But, back then, I was 275lbs. So now, I want to beat my time while weighing a heck of a lot less!
As I do Speed Keto, my goals are always changing. So, when I feel like I’m close, I set new ones, so I keep working hard. That way, I can keep pushing myself even harder. I know I’m a work in progress, and I like it that way!
Do you plan to continue or follow Speed Keto again in the future?
Kimberly Laret: Right now, I’m on Round 9 of Speed Keto. So, I’ll need to finish at least two more rounds to reach my goal. But I do know one thing. I will continue this lifestyle! I know Speed Keto will help me keep losing weight.
I mean, I just love the structure, the spelled-out plan. I don’t have to count calories or points. The added intermittent fasting also helped me out a lot. You know, I’ve always loved snacks, and intermittent fasting helped me break that habit.
Overall, I’m just thankful that Speed Keto exists. I can’t tell you how much I love it. I mean, I haven’t felt so good in so long, and I love that my sons are so proud of me and my hard work.
