Year in Review: Health Wins for 2022
At the end of 2022, the Senza health coaching team sent one last poll out to our keto community:
"Who lost 22 lbs or more in 2022?"
We invited all of our keto and fasting app users to share the progress they experienced while following a keto and intermittent fasting lifestyle. Hundreds of people responded within a matter of hours, and the answers astounded us - ranging from an exact date when they reached the 22# milestone to a detailed recap of their journey throughout the year.
Here are some of the highlights we've compiled for a look back at the achievements of 2022. Thanks to all our Senza friends for sharing their inspiring health transformation stories:
"I started using Senza when I started keto in 2019. I lost over 22 pounds in 6 months and have kept the weight off for 3 years! I still do keto and use Senza everyday to keep me accountable and on track."

“I've lost over 40 lbs in the last 193 days and adjusted my target 3 times, exceeded 2 goals so far and closing in on my third. I have also had to change my wardrobe three times already, so I've made several large clothing donations to the local homeless shelters & Goodwill.”

"I am so happy to report achieving my goal weight. I had doubts it was too ambitious. Senza was so helpful and I used it religiously to make sure I was observing my numbers. After using Senza for over 420 days, I no longer feel the need to fill out everything because by now, I am so used to using my new style of eating, it's just what I do now. I know how to shop, what to make, love the availability of keto products and satisfying substitutes."
And perhaps our most memorable holiday greeting came from David, who writes that three years into his successful keto transformation, he has maintained his goal weight for over a year:
"Unless I am somewhere without internet service, if it goes in my mouth, it goes on my Senza!"
Happy 2023 everyone - be well!
