Antioch Mayor Drops 57 pounds, Hosts Magic of Keto Seminar

15

Chiropractor and Antioch Mayor Sean Wright will be hosting a “Magic of Keto” Seminar on June 14 at his office. Wright is hosting the event after he lost 57 lbs in one year after embracing the ketogenic diet.

“One year ago I was Pre-Diabetic with labs showing a fatty liver and not very health,” said Wright. “My wife was studying to earn her Masters degree in nutrition and came upon a new way of eating that she believed was exactly what I needed.”

Wright says he has battled weight issues for 15-years and tried everything from Weight Watchers to Nutri-System to Medi-fast and others. he says he would lose weight only to have it return.

He decided he needed to focus on making a lifestyle change versus being on a diet.

“My diet has changed my life and have watched several other people do the same thing and its changed their lives. I want to now share it with as many people as possible,” said Wright. “I was able to go 60-miles hiking with my family on vacation. I am able to go rock climbing with my kids and able to do more. I just know I’ll be around longer with my kids. I have now done this for a year and I know I can live like this. It’s healthy and it feels like a lifestyle I can live with.”

Wright admits this diet and lifestyle may not be an option for everyone, but he wants people to know its available. His main goal is to educate people on the diet and dispel some of the myths and focus on the science behind it.

“I want people to have all the options they can have. This is just another option to a healthy lifestyle. I also want people to understand the science behind it because if you understand the science, people can better decide if its for them,” said Wright.

Wright says the best thing he has heard while sharing the ketogenic diet with others is he had a patient who started it and lost 15 lbs and now off insulin. Others have lost up to 35-lbs.

Wright admits the beginning was hard and the hardest thing he had to give up was the sugar.

“The sugar addiction is real,” said Wright.

Registration is required as space is limited. His office is located at 3432 Hillcrest Ave., Ste 200 Antioch, CA. To RSVP, click here. Once the class is filled up, there is an opportunity to sign up for a waiting list. Wright will do another one.

  1. Maybe now you can get off your azz and fix this city…..Youll burn alot of fat walking around this city and seeing what a dump it has become. Maybe you can start making good on your promises you made.

  2. While the Keto diet is a good one, you really can’t stay on it forever. At one point, the body just quits to respond to it. It really has to do with cutting down on the food and EXERCISE!

  3. All of you clowns need to go crawl back under a rock! This man is talking about health, his and possibly another’s. This story is not political. You all need to get a life. Maybe a diet, and get some since in your head. Good job Mayor, take care!!!

    • Good for him to have lost the weight, but look around. This town is a mess, him not stuffing his face with pizza and big macs is a low priority for the voters. Congrats that youre heathier, now its time to make this city heathier , because we all know this city is on life support.

  4. Something must be done to STOP attracting the knuckleheads/criminals to this city. This should have been headed-off-at-the-pass instead of it letting it grow and grow for decades!

  5. The issue I have with his hosting a Keto Session is he is not a dietitian, a certified nutritionist, or even a doctor (though, the later have minimal nutrition training). I applaud all who work hard to take control of their health and, if an LCHF diet works for him, great. Research does support an LCHF diet for obese individuals and those with Type 2 Diabetes (who are otherwise metabolically stable). However, the scope of practice of a chiropractor is not nutrition, medical therapy or otherwise. Is he preaching 80/15/5 or 70/20/10 or 60/30/10 or other macro combinations? Now, if his wife has finished her MS in Nutrition and certified and/or licensed, is actually leading the class, this may not be such an issue
