Lipedema & Keto WOE Mentoring Community
We are thrilled to announce that enrollment is now open for the Founders group for the Lipedema & Keto WOE Mentoring Community, a private online membership site where those with lipedema who are committed to the Ketogenic WOE combined with other proven conservative measures can come together to feel better and live better.
Initial membership is limited to 100 women only. You will be a Founding member (see benefits below).
Our members are those with experience in dealing with keto, lipedema and other treatments, as well as newbies. We have members from all over the world.
What we share in common is a desire for health and well-being even in the presence of this disease of lipedema and to support one another in this journey. Therefore, we are a community of feisty and fabulous lipedema ladies who persist
We can do so much more together than alone.
“We have all known the long loneliness, and we have found that the answer is community.” ~Dorothy Day

Benefits of Our Mentoring Community
Support for your Journey to Wellness!
If you are already a member of our free community, Lipedema & Keto WOE, then you already know what we mean when we refer to support of one another. It’s not so much a place as it is a philosophy, a ground of being: together we are so much more powerful than alone. If we want to make the most of our lives, sharing our successes and challenges creates opportunity for each of us.
So, with that in mind, we have created this exclusive community to be a source of information, support, validation, guidance, and inspiration for all of us on our journey. We have to make friends with our situation and come to dance with it. We are learning to ROCK IT! The Lipedema & Keto WOE Mentoring Community is just the place for that. Not to mention that you’ll be making real friends, too. Starting with Catherine, Leslyn, Megan and Mende, your mentors and guides on this group.

Lipedema Lady shares:
“I was getting bigger and bigger despite all my best efforts, my husband had threatened to leave me if I got too big and thought it was my fault, when I got the diagnosis (by accident) I was so pleased it wasn't my fault, but still no diet worked. Been keto 11 months so far and lost 50lbs and 50 inches and am smaller than I was 15 years ago and feel so much better. I feel like I can take on the world and succeed instead of hiding indoors waiting for life to pass me by." ~Sue, UK
You will be a Founding Member!
All great things need to start somewhere. Our Facebook Lipedema & Keto Way of Eating group has been wonderful for many who have posted and written to us about their successes. We have heard from numerous women who want more. I’m that kind of gal as well. So we are building this, and we want you to be a part of this development process. That’s why we are keeping the price so low, and inviting you to be a FOUNDING member of this community. This will only have once, and that’s NOW! It’s an invitation not for everyone. If you are someone who would like to join us, we will embrace you with open arms and be glad for your presence, and listen to your feedback to become better. For

It’s an invitation but it's not for everyone. If you are someone who would like to join us, we will embrace you with open arms and be glad for your presence, and listen to your feedback to become better.
For that you will stay at the current low price forever if you choose to, with the same annual or monthly fee for the rest of your life or until you are ready to leave the community.
This will only happen once, and that’s NOW, until we have 100 members!

Quotes from lipedema ladies are scattered throughout this web page and on the shopping cart page. Here is one story in more depth. Heather is from New Zealand and has been thrilled with her outcomes.
Heather tried everything to lose weight for over 30 years – unsuccessfully. She had several bouts of cellulitis that required numerous hospitalizations. No matter how many times she earnestly tried to explain her efforts and failures, as a fat woman with Stage 3 lipedema, her pleas for help were dismissed by clinicians…. until she found out about lipedema while watching the documentary, The Disease They Call FAT – Lipedema.
Heather wrote us:
“I was just so tired of being fobbed off, shamed and insulted. I was sick of leaving doctor’s offices feeling worse than when I walked in. This part of my life needed to change. I needed to be heard. Being diagnosed was wonderful and terrible. To finally put a name to it, to have a doctor who didn’t insinuate that I did this to myself and that the fat was my fault, was euphoric. The realization that because of the delay in my diagnosis, I had few treatment options, was more of a downer. It’s not my fault, I’m not alone, and it’s not the end of my story.”
Heather was one of the first to sign up for an experimental group being held by The Lipedema Project beginning in September 2016. We began applying Keto WOE. At the time these brave women were willing to be pioneers to make a difference in their condition. All of the literature, indeed, endless failed efforts at weight loss seemed to prove the then current belief that lipedema was non-responsive to diet and exercise. But something new started to emerge as women reported weight loss, reduction of symptoms such as pain, swelling and inflammation, and an overall sense of increasing well-being.
At 10 weeks Heather wrote us:
“2 1/2 month measure : I have lost 24 inches in total (61cm) Which includes 3 1/2 inches (9cm) off my hips and 3 inches (8cm) off my waist and 3 inches (8cm) off each upper thigh, 1.5 inches (4cm) off each upper arm. On the down side I have lost nearly an inch off my bust. Official 10 week weigh in: weight lost: 24kg (53 pounds) Doc kept checking the numbers… couldn’t believe it.”
To date Heather has lost 90 pounds, no longer needs walking sticks, has reduced her pain medication by half and plays with her young son Ace, and overall reports feeling “freer than I could ever have believed.”
Lipedema Lady shares:
“This group has literally been a lifesaver for me, I had been diagnosed type 2 Diabetic, had tried and failed for years to get to the weight where I could be referred for surgery, and had really almost given up. This group has been informative, supportive, friendly and has helped me to reverse my diabetes and lose 59 lbs so far…I have now been referred for the surgery I need! I feel this WOE will add years to my life and help to avoid disability…my eye sight had started to be affected so I am relieved that will be helped. It has also given me so many NSVs…55.5 inches lost, litres off my legs, no gas and bloating, disappearing skin tags, much younger looking skin, no indigestion at night, no snoring, better oral hygiene, and I now take delight in crossing my legs and standing on tip toes! Thanks so much to all of you!” ~Katy, UK

Lipedema Lady shares:
“Best part is knowing that I am not alone on this journey. Most of us, at some stage, have felt isolated and cut off from the lives we want to have. Being part of this group offers friendships, support, encouragement and a sense of family. “Normal” people have little idea of the torment we go through to look more like them.” ~Leonie, Australia

“Knowledge is Power. Finally,a group that acknowledge that there is a problem, and we need medical help. This group is working at that goal.
