Katy's self-proclaimed "Keto Krew" were recently featured on Good Morning America for their big weight loss success story. “Morale is up. Everyone is trying to help,” store manager Nick Glidden told GMA. He joined the Keto Krew after seeing a friend drop two pant sizes.

“Almost daily we get two to three customers who talk to us about keto," says Glidden. Now the Katy Keto Krew are advocating for the diet and hoping to get a Keto section in the store.

What is a Keto Diet?

According to the Diet Doctor, "a keto or ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine." Like many diets you don't have to look hard for success stories and stories of failures or warnings. However, the key to most diets is finding support in family, friends or in the case of this story, co-workers.

Sharing Recipes and Encouragement

The moral of their ongoing success is the support and inspiration they've found in each other. Through the sharing of recipes, products in the store and encouragement this diet is proving a success for them even if that success is inspirationally based versus the actual mechanics of this diet.

Like most diets you can find helpful resources and recipes regarding the Keto diet on the internet. Or you can go visit your local Katy Sprouts Farmers Market Store and chat with one of our local Katy diet celebrities.
