I am a foodie at heart.
Before my chronic illness set in, I used to eat at the finest restaurants in Miami and around the globe. In my prior life, every meal was a celebration of life. I loved discovering new flavor profiles and experiencing new cultures through food.
When I became ill, I could sometimes hardly muster the energy to heat up a frozen dinner in the microwave. When the debilitating symptoms that are characteristic of my illness manifested – pain, over-the-top fatigue, brain fog, loss of zest for life – they highjacked my life.
After seeing countless doctors, undergoing a myriad of tests and scans and taking dozens of different medications and supplements, I began to fear that life as I knew it was over.
Then I met Michelle Areces. Chef Michi, as I call her, is the mastermind behind Keto Kitchen 2GO. When Michelle heard my story, she told me I had to go back to basics. Having fully recovered from a similar chronic illness herself, she was convinced that the key to regaining my health and vitality was the keto diet.
In addition to the dozens of medications and supplements I ingested over the course of four years, I tried various diets in my quest to feel better: gluten-free, sugar-free, low carb, Paleo, GAPS, everything in between and, when I was feeling particularly down, my all-time favorite – the high carb high sugar diet (read, tortellini or other pasta, with crusty Italian bread, followed by a big piece of carrot cake for dessert). None of these diets did anything for me.
Then I started the Keto Kitchen 2GO program. This isn’t just any Keto diet plan. Chef Michi combines the science of macro-management with the culinary arts and uses only the finest organic ingredients to bring her clients a daily organic keto meal plan that is perfectly balanced to achieve ketosis while including everything from classic comfort foods to exotic global cuisines.
Although I felt worse initially, as my body rid itself of toxins, I started to feel a little better each day. I have now been on the Keto Kitchen 2GO program for 4 months, and although I am still in the process of recovery, I am no longer a hostage of my illness. My symptoms get better each week and I am confident that I will soon be fully recovered.
I never could have imagined that the key to regaining my health lay with subscribing to a meal plan that makes it easy to be on a diet that is as strict as the Ketogenic diet.
Unlike other meal services I have tried, there has not been a single serving that I did not thoroughly enjoy. Each and every meal is creatively crafted to please the palate and to give your body exactly the macros it needs to achieve that elusive state of ketosis that has allowed me to feel human again.
Although I did not sign up for Keto Kitchen 2GO specifically to lose or control my weight, I have lost a few inches around the waist. Which is not a bad thing.
I wish to thank Chef Michi and the staff of Keto Kitchen 2GO for their labor of love. Thanks to them, I am able to follow a diet that has allowed me to live life again. And with the incredibly delicious and inventive menus that Chef Michi puts together each day, I can still be a foodie!
