With work and a whole bunch of responsibilities, she found it difficult to make herself a priority after having children. She started following a Keto lifestyle on December 1, 2016 and created her Instagram account @ketoincanada to get accountability and ideas from others following the Ketogenic diet.

One of the things I have LOVED about her is that she is able to stick to her lifestyle with a packed schedule and on the go! On a visit to the warehouse, I found myself finding THAT post on her Instagram with her favourite Pita Pit salad because I know she's done the hard work to figure out macros! So, we stalked her Instagram and tracked down her favourites restaurant hacks and estimated net carbs where possible! You can visit Joanna's website here
