Joe and Rachel Stauffer, better known as 2 Krazy Ketos, are YouTubers and children’s pastors from South Florida.
Joe has struggled with weight his entire life, trying every type of weight loss program you can think of, including Jenny Craig, Nutri-system, severe calorie restriction, and even CrossFit. After doing some research, Joe decided to try the keto lifestyle and has had incredible results. In the first 6 months, he lost 85 pounds and went from a size 44 pant to a size 30. After reaching his goal of 180 lbs, Joe has maintained his 100+ pound weight loss for over a year and a half through the Ketogenic lifestyle.
In addition to the incredible weight loss, Joe also experienced some other surprising health benefits. When he was 20-years-old, Joe suffered a debilitating injury from a car accident, which left him with a severe limp and arthritis. For years, he had to rely on medication to get through the day. Since beginning the ketogenic lifestyle, Joe has increased range of motion in his ankle, is pain-free and no longer needs to take any medication for his injury.
Rachel has had an unhealthy relationship with food for most of her life. Instead of using food as a fuel source, she’s used it as a source of emotional support, reward, and punishment. After a 100-pound weight loss through severe calorie restriction that felt more like a losing yo-yo tournament than a major accomplishment, Rachel noticed Joe was enjoying maintainable success on Keto while enjoying really delicious food. Rachel joined the Keto lifestyle for the chicken wings but stayed for the mental clarity and cravings-control she never dreamed was possible. Through a combination of the keto lifestyle and intermittent fasting, Rachel has been able to reach her goal size, improve her metabolism and reverse her insulin resistance.
Thankful for the opportunity to look forward to a happy and healthy future with their three adult sons, John Paul, Anthony and Caleb, Joe and Rachel are excited to share their keto journey and hopefully encourage other families to change their diet and change their lives.
