Welcome to Rachel Goes Keto! I am so excited that you found me and my story. Whether you are just starting, needing to break a plateau, or looking for advanced advice, this site is for you. I hope you find the information you need to achieve ultimate success with the keto way of eating.
Hi! My name is Rachel Herrera. I am a mom of three young children, a military wife, and a self-proclaimed foodie!
I have been battling with obesity, PCOS, high blood pressure, anxiety and diabetes most of my adult life. To be honest, I’m just a medical wreck for a LONG time.
I have gone through years of medical professionals convincing me that insulin and other medications (totaling 11 different pills a day) is the only solution to my conditions. It was years of doctors telling me I’m just too lazy and just wasn’t active enough (mind you, I’m just gymming 2 hours a day when this was said to me) or that I just needed to eat less.
The frustration turned into acceptance that this was my life- until, May 2018.
It was my birthday month and I’m just turning 34. I had that wide known midlife crisis type of question nagging at me,
“What have I done with my life?”
To tell you the truth, I had done A LOT with my life, but I NEVER faced my true struggles in the midst of my accomplishments. I never got down to the nitty gritty on WHY I’m just OBESE. I gave up, when I should have pushed forward.
I’m just finally in a mental place where I’m just sick and tired of being- sick and tired. I’m just convinced that I’m just made to do more. But how could I DO More if I couldn’t physically keep up with my ambitions? And so the search for natural healing began.
Keto saved the day.
I WANT TO HELP YOU
After all of my struggle, emotional pain, hospital visits, and “I just can’t keep up” moments I’ve experienced and overcome. I want to help you do the same. It is my mission to NEVER let anyone that wants help not receive it!
I know firsthand how sucky life can get when friends start to call you less for outdoor outings because you end up bailing out anyway. Your daily activities prove to be difficult because family time consists of indoor activities where you are protecting yourself from the embarrassment of not being able to keep up. I DON’T WANT THAT FOR ANYONE.
I’ve lived it, and I refuse to let others in my circle live the same.
You are made to reach your highest potential in health, in wellness, and in life. But the first thing we tend to neglect, is our health; which, in my opinion is the single most important category to establish yourself in. If you aren’t healthy- you aren’t living.
It is my goal to get you motivated, educate you on my journey and the success I have achieved so you can replicate the same for your life.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
