“I’m glad I found Keto India folks just in time!”
This postpartum weight loss story talks about Polki, a 34-years-old Teacher from Delhi, India. She’s also a mother of a beautiful 2-year-old baby girl and we are fond of this perfect mother-daughter duo!
2 years ago she gave birth to her beautiful daughter and she was the happiest person on earth. Ever since her delivery, she started working again and took care of her baby girl at the same time. She thought that whatever weight she has gained postpartum will eventually go away.
But to her surprise, she started to gain a lot of weight instead of losing it. People told her that the weight will drop on its own gradually but that didn’t seem to happen at all. It wasn’t coming any down and it started to worry her more.
Polki started having a hard time. She was frustrated and wanted to get rid of the excess weight that she had gained. Polki started to give a try to all the ways of losing weight but nothing seemed to work for her. She wanted to fix this immediately but was unsure about how.
POST-PARTUM WEIGHT GAIN
The relentless weight gain experienced by women during their adult lives is punctuated by pregnancies. Women often find it difficult to lose weight after giving birth, even with breastfeeding, and many continue to gain weight.
Most women who gained the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy, remain 2-3 kgs above their pre-pregnancy weight a year after giving birth. A sizable minority, 15-20% of women, will hold onto even 5 kgs or more.
You’ve probably heard the saying, “Nine months on, nine months off.”But, for many new moms, it can be frustrating to face extra lingering pounds or deal with clothes that don’t fit right. Postpartum weight loss varies for each woman.
Getting back into shape isn’t always as simple as eating less and working out more, especially when you’re adjusting to caring for your little one.

THE KETO DIET
A worried Polki came across the concept of Keto Diet and finally approached us. She told us she was not able to lose any weight even after trying a lot of things altogether. Polki required a personalized ketogenic diet for reducing her Postpartum Weight Gain.
The keto diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, and a low-carbohydrate diet that enables the body to burn the stored body fats and helps with a good amount of weight loss. It involves reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat.
This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain.
Ketogenic diets can help in reduction in blood sugar and insulin levels. It shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat and ketones.

We helped her with a Personalized Keto Diet Plan based on her Macronutrient Requirements, Caloric Requirements, and her Meal Preferences. We made sure that all of her requirements and preferences will be taken into consideration throughout this diet.
Polki finally decided to start her keto journey with us. A personal nutritionist was assigned to her who made sure to keep her motivated and encouraged to stay on track while on the diet. He ensured to guide her through the diet and helped her follow it in the right manner as well.
She was surprised that eating fats could make her lose weight. The keto diet aims to force your body into using a different type of fuel. Instead of relying on glucose that comes from carbohydrates, the keto diet relies on ketone bodies, a type of fuel that the liver produces from stored body fat.
