We can easily become Vitamin D deficient by not eating the recommended foods that contain Vitamin D naturally or getting proper exposure to the sunlight. Being Vitamin D deficient can affect us in many ways.  It can cause issues with our bones, immune system, hormone, and more. Read more...

Motivational Monday: Keto is not a ‘one size fits all’

Do you ever say to yourself “others are losing so much weight and keto seems to work so well for them, but it’s not going the same for me... what am I doing wrong?” Every person’s health is in different levels of healing… some may be on medication. Some have allergies or food sensitivities. Some people have hormone imbalances or are in menopause… how can you possibly compare yourself to another person? I think it’s really important that you find out some things about your body if you do not already know. Food sensitivities are a huge one. Left unchecked, you will have inflammation and you will have a hard time reaping the benefits from any healthy eating plan you embark on. How is your gut health? Grains in particular are very hard on the gut and destroy the good bacteria you have in your gut. When this happens your body is not able to absorb the vitamins and nutrients you are trying to feed it. When we eat grains it causes our stomach to have little tiny openings, which causes large molecules to escape, which leads to allergies and food sensitivities. It’s a vicious cycle. I started using bone broth years ago to heal my gut from all of the years of eating gluten, sugar, and the other foods that did not work for my body. Bone broth is one of the most gut healing foods on the planet. I make my own bone broth regularly and I also use our Intentionally Bare Bone Broth Powder, made from grass-fed and pasture raised cows. All health stems from the gut. This is why I run a Bone Both Cleanse once a month in my Intentionally Bare Keto Support Group on Facebook. Two books on this subject of grains and food sensitivities that I really like are Grain Brain and Wheat Belly. I think the best way to eat keto is to do it your way... the way that works best for your body. I had a food sensitivity test done (to confirm what I already knew to be true) and grains are a HELL NO. I did not realize how great I could feel until I cut them all out of my diet. I have them on occasion but if it's more than a 'one and done' I feel SO horrible. I used to have a lot of allergy and inflammation problems and now they are gone. I eat keto honoring what my body is telling me.  If I eat grains then I feel bad; it’s that simple. I think it’s really important that you do keto your way so you get the maximum health benefits from this amazing lifestyle. Our bodies are screaming for us to listen. Pay attention to what your body is telling you. Keto is a win-win as far as weight loss and amazing health. Do it in the way that works for you and your body and you can’t lose. You got this!
