For much of his life, Alex was overweight and unable to consistently find a way to get healthy. After a tragedy in his family, his aunt and cousin were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Soon after that, Alex was diagnosed with prediabetes. It was all or nothing situation. That was the reason why Alex started following the ketogenic diet and took full responsibility for his health. Alex has been following the ketogenic diet since 2016 and has won the battle against overweight.
