Alexa Tubertini, 26, knew there were certain foods that didn’t agree with her body, but she couldn’t figure out what they were.

In the evenings she would feel bloated, lethargic and be craving sugar. “I would always have a little chocolate post-dinner,” she says. Wanting to understand what foods worked better for her body, Alexa signed up to the Keto-Fit Challenge.

THE CHALLENGE

Keto is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that tricks the body into a fat-burning process called ketosis. Over the eight weeks, Alexa followed a structured meal plan, increased her exercise and introduced Keto-Fit products into her diet. As well as making the change from her typical carb-heavy meals, Alexa also decided to incorporate intermittent fasting as part of the challenge. “Giving up brekky was actually easier than I thought. It was more lunch and snacking that I struggled with initially. To aid her on her journey, Alexa added Keto-Fit products to her diet and she quickly become a fan of the Keto-Fit MCT Powder. It was really easy to incorporate into my morning coffee and I felt it helped me start my day off on the right foot. It really helps curb your appetite too, which is great in the prevention of over-snacking!

THE RESULTS

Alexa noticed she was visibly less bloated from the second day of the challenge. “Having structure to my diet really helped curb my over-eating. On keto I really waited for my body to tell me when it was hungry before feeding it. Happy with her results, Alexa says she is now incorporating a wider variety of fruit and veg into her diet as they help her feel better and stronger at the gym. “I have learnt a lot about how my body reacts to food at different times of the day, and what I personally need to function at my best.”
