A 338 lb. woman who was left mortified when she had to be removed from a roller coaster for being too heavy has halved her body weight thanks to the keto diet.

Office manager and graphic designer, Chelsey Bishop, 35, from Tucson, Arizona, was teased about her weight from the age of seven, and was always larger than all her friends. 

Weighing 338 lbs. at her heaviest, the young woman struggled in her size 28 frame and couldn’t walk 50 feet without losing her breath. 

After being removed from a Universal Studios ride in December 2017 because she was too heavy, Chelsey turned to a keto diet to shed some weight. 

Thanks to her lifestyle change, Chelsey is now 182 lbs., and she’s a size 12, without needing any surgery along the way.

As a child, Chelsey was teased and bullied for being overweight. She explained that a lack of awareness on nutrition, as well as sedentary lifestyle contributed to her weight gain. 

“Growing up in a low-income household meant nutrition wasn’t something my family focused on or cared about, and those bad childhood eating habits became my bad adult eating habits. It was more about putting any possible food on the table for our family of five,” she said.

As an adult, Chelsey would gorged on up to 4,000 calories a day. She also suffered several health complications due to her bigger frame such as blood pressure and tachycardia.

“My standard diet routinely consisted of a blueberry scone or chocolate donut for breakfast with a large sugary caramel iced latte to wash it down, a cheeseburger with fries and fizzy drink for lunch, and a platter of tacos or chicken fried steak for dinner,” she said. “Then probably a few snacks or sweets in between each meal as well.”

In December 2017, while on a holiday to Universal Studios, Chelsey was removed from a ride in front of the many people around her because the harness didn’t fit around her frame.

“My turning point was seeing my clothes size getting larger, being ashamed to be weighed and having anxiety over what excuse I could possibly give my doctor to justify my weight,” she said.

After losing her father to congestive heart failure and being diagnosed with high blood pressure and tachycardia, Chelsey decided to look into the keto diet after seeing friends’ Facebook posts about their own transformations. 

“Standing at only 5 feet 3 inches tall and reaching my highest weight of over 336 lbs. at 33 years old, I finally reached a point where I felt like I would be lucky to live to see my 40s. Death was on my doorstep and I was tired of being in denial about it,” she explained.

“My dad always talked about how sugar was poison, but I never took it to heart until I realized how much healthier my body became after eliminating sugar,” she said. 

While working two jobs and have little time left for a gym session, Chelsey adapted her diet to fit with her hectic schedule by opting for a burger without the bun, choosing a side of vegetables rather than fries, and cutting out a lot of sugar. 

“I knew when I started that this routine wasn’t likely to change, so I learned how to adapt my diet to my lifestyle,” she explained. 

She lost an impressive 156 lbs. thanks to the lifestyle changes, and what she called “keto-fying” her diet. 

Impressively, she did so in less than two years without exercising or resorting to surgery.  

Since shedding almost half her body weight, Chelsey’s resting heart rate has decreased from 90 beats per minute to 60, and she’s no longer required to take blood pressure medication.

“I am a living example of how simply modifying your diet can completely change your health and your life,” Chelsey said. “I am incredibly proud of myself. For over 30 years, I took my health for granted and I’m lucky that carrying around that much excess weight didn’t do more damage. Life is harder when you’re living it in such a large body, and I didn’t realize the impact it had on my life. I was in such denial. 

“Now I feel amazing, I love seeing the shock on the faces of people who haven’t seen me in a while. There’s two phases of astonishment: phase one is seeing me at literally half my physical size, and phase two is from telling them it was from my keto diet, no gym or exercise.

“I always assumed I had too much weight to lose and I was at a point of hopelessness. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Substantial weight loss without surgery is possible regardless of your lifestyle.”
