    Anyone with metabolic syndrome X turned themselves around?

    I would love to have inspiration related to what I am going through right now which is making changes and becoming fitter to control/irradicate metabolic syndrome.

    Has anyone been like that and over months/years, turned themselves around and became healthier?

    I would like to know about your journey!

    Thanks!

    I was never officially diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, but had all the symptoms, high blood pressure, overweight with most of it round my waist, difficulty losing weight even with a very strict low fat diet, craving for sweet things, borderline blood readings etc. And this was in spite of a very active lifestyle including lots of cardio and regular lifting.

    I started a keto diet almost as a joke ("Let's see how long I can do this stupid diet before I have a gallstone attack"). The weight dropped off, I lost three stone in six months with ease, my blood pressure dropped, my cholesterol profile completely reversed (high HDL, low LDL) and weirdest of all, my bone density increased. Oh, and I haven't had a gallstone attack since I started my high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet five years ago. The hospital keeps ringing me up to ask me when do I want the surgery and won't believe me when I say "Never".

    If you go over to the keto forum, you'll find some poeple with very advanced Syndrome X who control it with diet and exercise.
    65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs = keto.
