Hello, my name is Elsa. This channel is about my health journey with the keto diet and the success that my husband and I have had with the ketogenic lifestyle. Come along with me as I show you some recipes that I regularly eat plus some that I have never eaten as I make them into a keto friendly version. We are not doctors, but have lived a ketogenic lifestyle since February 2017. During these years we have experienced keto weight loss and my husband has reversed Type 2 Diabetes without medication. We want to spread the keto word to give hope to people fighting Type 2 Diabetes and who want to lose weight in a healthy way.
