Ketogenic diet with lipedema: weight loss project #viertelsprotte - part 1

BUFF-KLONG-PENG! There it is, the big starting shot of the next weight loss journey: ketogenic with lipedema. For a year now I've drifted so much that I woke up with over ten kilos more on the scales. Jerk.

I was after my great success from -35 kg again landed 20 kilos back in obesity. It was my own fault, gram for gram, and I knew it. I can literally hear them scurry past my tongue.

Beer, Haribo, eating too much out, no movement during Corona, a gigantic upheaval in my life and unsteady everyday life. Everything shits for a person who has been struggling with being overweight all his life.

I had come this far and gradually let go of the reins. But it's not a classic yo-yo effect that everyone uses to drive you crazy. It is negligence that would have punished anyone - fat or not.

You can't expect your body to stay like this all of a sudden after a weight loss journey if you don't continue to be mindful.

This is actually what you should learn during such a trip. Isn't the journey the goal? Learn what you really need to be honest and serious about life. What actually does your body much better than this delicious frothy beer ... Oh God, I miss it. No, back to the topic.

Stop it now.

We don't want to go back to your maximum weight, Ms. Sprott. We remember how you felt when you were a size 50, what you saw in the mirror as you stepped out of the shower. It's not you, because with every gram you lose that happy lightness that you worked hard for.

And there it was, the necessary frustration. The piling up of any little frustrations as soon as I saw and realized that I was out of hand.

Do I regret it? Not really.

It was a bomb time at times. For me, gain is usually associated with happiness. With nice social evenings, escalations, enjoyment, going idle. So every gram is a good reminder of wild times. But so that I can collect another 100 years full of such special moments, I have to live healthier and reduce risks. So headed for a new way to normal weight.

Ketogenic diet with lipedema:
Is this change in diet now the right one?

In the end, only you know that, because it has to fit your lifestyle. I joined a ketogenic nutrition group on Facebook a few weeks earlier to quietly read along, and I liked the idea of ​​a diet that avoided carbohydrates as much as possible. Quasi an increased form of low carb, because 30g of carbohydrates are my limit for the day.

The goal of this diet is to bring the body into ketosis through the greatly reduced carbohydrates beforehand. So he has to generate all the energy from fat and proteins and thus also goes to his own reserves.

I would like to explain in a separate article why all of this can also be beneficial for people with lipedema. I would first like to gather my own long-term experience.

If you want to deal with this type of diet now, I recommend this book Simply keto.

Control is everything

The ketogenic diet with lipedema alone brought great weight loss results in the beginning. But so that the aisles on the scales (I walk every day) don't get frustrated, it is important to choose one with body fat measurement and water percentage, etc. I have this here, with which I can see all the data on one app.

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.

  • Hallo,

    I think your contributions are great. I've been able to achieve a lot even with the ketogenic diet. Unfortunately I had to stop doing it because of my pregnancy, but as soon as the little sparrow arrives, I will be back on the path of the LCHF journey.
    I'm curious what you have to say in your next reports 🙂

    Best regards and good luck!
    Corinna

  • Hello Carolin,
    Do you currently live in Augsburg? I do. I received the diagnosis of lipedema type 3 grade 3 1 days ago with lymphedema grade 2 after cruciate ligament op.
    I like to climb a bit in the mountains, ski touring, mountaineering and ask me whether the tights can do that? Is mobility particularly important when climbing?
    Where can I find information?
    Best regards,
    Sabine

    • Hello Sabine,

      yes exactly, I live in Augsburg.

      For such an active life, I can recommend medi cozy, from bauerfeind the venotrain curaflow or Juzo Expert. With these you should be able to move best. Please discuss with your Sanifee (e.g. I'm at Sanita am Judenberg) that you need additives for sporting activities and they will be able to advise you on this. 🙂 Functional zones, adhesive edges, etc.

      Best regards,
      Caroline
