Chocolate Chip Keto Cookies

Baking while keto is one of my favorite things. Sure, there’s lots of stuff you can buy that’s keto friendly. But often, you’ll find that those weight loss foods at the store are filled with ‘stuff’. Preservatives to help keep them fresh on the shelves for longer. Artificial sweeteners which can cause stomach upset. Dyes to make products look more palatable.
Baking keto-friendly substitutes of some favorites, such as these keto-friendly chocolate chip cookies, will really help if you’re trying to transition the family to the keto diet...

Training Performance on Keto

While it’s true that one of the side effects of the ketogenic diet is weight loss, anyone who is on keto with a weight loss goal has thought about adding a workout routine into the mix.

Are you all or nothing?

In my personal and business life, I like to set goals. I take those goals and break them down into digestible pieces. I schedule myself so that I can achieve these goals in a balanced, fun, and reasonably paced way. I really try to live my life with intention and purposely plan my life this way.

That said, sometimes I get an 'ah-ha' moment of inspiration, and I run with it!

Keto-Friendly Bread Substitutes

True story... On the ketogenic diet, bread is a no-no.  One slice of whole wheat bread spikes your insulin higher than a Snickers bar. Thankfully, we live in an era where food is experimented with and just about anyone can master the art of cooking. Because of that, we have access to some incredible recipes for keto-friendly bread substitutes!

Not losing weight? You okay with that?

Not losing weight? You okay with that?

I have been living the Keto lifestyle for two years now… it’s so automatic I don’t really think about it. I also feel like this life is for living and sometimes I am not going to be ‘macro perfect’… and seriously, I am okay with that.

This last weekend I did go over in my carbs, but since I was intermittent fasting and I am fat-adapted, I did not notice much difference in my ketone levels, my energy or weight.

Did I lose weight? No. Am I ok with that? Yes. Why?...

Can the Keto Diet Help Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, also known as PCOS, affects one in ten women of childbearing age. That means that in North America alone, about 10,000,000 women suffer from PCOS. The effects can be devastating. Insomnia, weight gain, infertility, and pain may be the tip of the iceberg. Those destructive symptoms of PCOS can last for years for some women, and diagnosis may also take a long time. It’s truly a life-altering medical condition. But can the keto diet help PCOS?

If you could go back in time and tell your pre-keto self the difference between regular dieting and keto… what would you say?

If you could say to your old self ‘hey, it wasn’t your fault that you couldn’t lose the weight or stick to that ‘diet’, would you?

My 72 Hour Fasting Experiment

My 72 Hour Fasting Experiment

I love to experiment with my keto plan and health protocols to see how my body reacts to things. I have been reading more and more about autophagy. In case you don’t know what autophagy is, it’s the body removing unnecessary or damaged cells and toxins; cellular garbage that if left in the body, can turn into disease. Occasionally clearing out that cellular garbage is the best way to stay disease-free in my opinion (and say all the keto doctors, such as Dr. Jason Fung, the most respected ‘fasting expert’ in the keto space). The body does this somewhat on its own, but when combined with fasting, it’s like autophagy on steroids!
