Adam's Keto Journey
Adam is the founder of CanDo, the maker of Keto Crisp bars (featured in this month’s Krate)! Not only has he (along with the entire CanDo team) provided the Keto community with delicious on-the-go bars to help keep us on track, but he also has an inspiring story of his own that we can all use for some major motivation. Read his story and follow him @adambremen and @tastecando for a dose of positivity, inspiration, and fun!
I was born with Cerebral Palsy and have used an electric wheelchair for mobility my entire life. From an early age, my parents instilled in me that life is about what I CAN DO, not what I can’t! It’s that positive attitude that has allowed me to be the person I am today.
In 2018, I was introduced to an organization called ‘Life Rolls On’ that helps people with special needs to surf. I was overweight and uncomfortable with how I looked and felt; I was so moved by my experience surfing that I decided to dedicate myself to health & wellness. I began to work out with a trainer. We created a diet and swimming program along with other exercises. Since I began my journey in 2018 and following the Keto based diet, I have lost 65 pounds. I have tried many eating habits/diets in the past, but nothing ever stuck! I knew this time around things were going to be different. I was so focused and determined that NOTHING was going to stop me!
The best advice I can share is to set ACHIEVABLE goals. I remember when I started, I would say 4 out of 7 days I would stay away from carbs and sugars. As I saw the weight come off, my confidence in the Keto lifestyle grew, but I knew I needed to do more. I couldn’t find an on-the-go snack with premium clean ingredients that tasted good.
As a lifelong foodie, I strongly believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice taste when making healthy decisions. At Keto Krisp we say, “After all, life’s too short to eat sh!#ty tasting bars.” My goals are to continue to help this great community grow! My passion is people; I love seeing people happy and living life to the fullest.
It is something that motivated me to be the best that I can be. I get so much inspiration and happiness seeing others succeed! I love to hear from all of you! We hope you love our bars!
