I’m Lee, the founder of ingfit.
ingfit started out as a small project to write a small nutrition guide in response from requests from lots of people for me to share my weight loss secrets.
See, for most of my life I've really struggled with my weight but when I turned 30 I decided to do something about it. I did some research and found that weight loss is a pretty simple endeavour and, after applying my newly acquired knowledge, I lost the weight fairly quickly (28kg no less).
Once I had that in order, my interest in fitness and nutrition turned into something of a mild obsession and for the last 10+ years my focus has been towards trying to get that elusive six pack. I've had some pretty decent results having gotten down to about 8% body fat but keeping things on track is always a constant struggle for me.
That said, I've been in pretty good shape for the last 10 years and my fitness has been at a pretty high standard since I started out back when I was 30. Now that I've crossed over the line into my 40s, I'm less concerned with getting a six pack and more interested in the more complex world of longevity.
In around 2014 I stumbled upon the ketogenic diet and immediately started a journey of self-experimentation as I was sold the idea that it was the golden bullet for getting super lean. Alas, it's not, but having done a tonne of research I've learned that the benefits stretch wide, especially in relation to longevity.
At the peak of my journey, I would say I was in ketosis for a straight 12 months and had a stretch of 2 years when I was in and out of ketosis. Now, though, I adopt a more flexible approach to my diet and consider keto as one of the ‘tools’ in the wellness toolbox which I draw upon when required.
