Motivational Monday Organization and Planning

I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying ‘if you fail to plan you plan to fail’… it may be a bit corny but it’s pretty accurate.  ‘Winging it’ and not being organized and prepared does more than sabotage our weight loss efforts.

So when I would load up our dinners with extra butter or coconut milk or whatever fat delivery method I chose for that particular meal, it was having a negative effect on him.

Motivational Monday: What made you realize keto was your lifestyle and not your diet?

When I first started keto, I was trying it to lose weight.  Back then that was my main concern.  I heard about some health conditions it improved/reversed, but I was mainly concerned with dropping weight. I didn’t think I had that many health issues and I wasn’t convinced that just by eating differently, that the issues I had would be solved; that would be way too easy. Read more...
