Cyrena’s – Nutritional lifestyle Journey

We are back with another interview of someone living a the healthy nutritional lifestyle!
In today’s interview I would like to present Nutritional Therapist, Cyrena. She has been following a low carb high fat style lifestyle since Feb 2012 and lost 30 pounds in 3 months and as kept it off ever since.
She found many things that slowed down her progress and what made her feel more optimal.
By following a twist of: low carb, ketogenic, gluten free, LCHF, paleo, and organic she has found many things that have worked and feels good for her.
She runs her own blog and has an awesome facebook page as well. You can also find her on Instagram and Twitter @cyrenajacoby
So we can definitely learn a lot from her journey and how progressive changes using food has helped her.
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Thank you so much for having me! I am always thrilled when fellow food and health enthusiasts find me! So thank you! And you too for reading this! I was a school Nurse for 10 years turned Nutritional Therapist. While working for the schools I would teach my students the importance of proper nutrition. And not always the kind the government wants us to think is a one size fits all package. I was always blown away by the bad rap fats would get. Of course I’m speaking specifically of healthy fats but everyone put them both into the same category for so long that the idea of Fat became the fear. I was first introduced to Ketogenic Dieting while working as a School Nurse. One of my students was diagnosed with Epilepsy,(grand mal and absence seizures) we had to feed them only the food mom provided at certain times in order to keep them in ketosis. They benefited so much from the diet, it was incredible to witness. My brother reintroduced me to Ketogenic Diet when trying to lose weight. I told him that he needed to make sure he did it right and that if he was going to, I would too. He ended up losing 100 lbs in 4 months when I lost 30 lbs in 3 months. Needless to say I was sold! I started blogging my journey and wanted to make this lifestyle something easy to do and something that was fool proof. Rich Mind Empty Pocket blew up with activity towards my progress and recipes. I created my Facebook page so people can see the latest and greatest articles I am currently following, and where I get my information from. I posted many recipes on my Instagram account as well. The rest is pretty much history. This became a family ordeal. We all follow this lifestyle and have all reaped the many benefits from it.
What moment or event started your weight loss journey?
My brother began my weight loss journey. He had much more weight to lose and had been heavy his whole life.............
