Keto and Auto-Immune Disorders

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!

Changing Your Mindset: Food as Fuel

Changing Your Mindset: Food as Fuel

Changing Your Mindset: Food as Fuel

The secret to building a healthy body is reaping the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. We may pig out on special occasions or when we finally get to eat that super unhealthy but oh-so-delicious birthday cake, but that all results from a mentality that has been normalized and can be detrimental to our health. We live in a society that sees food as something to build a celebration or holiday around, or a method of giving comfort, or a way of showing love. While there's nothing wrong with enjoying how your food tastes, we have moved away from the mindset that food is fuel. Read more about the essential change of mindset that food IS fuel.

What Can Collagen Peptides Do for Your Health?

Collagen is one of the proteins in your body. WebMD calls collagen ‘the body’s scafolding.’ It’s one of the most important building blocks of the giant list of ingredients that makes up you.

Protein is an essential part of your fuel intake when you’re following the ketogenic diet. Paired with fat, protein makes us feel satisfied after a meal. As you’re losing weight, it’s especially important that you grow muscle and take care of your skin; protein is essential to this process. Read here more about some of the ways that collagen peptides in particular can support you in your keto journey.

Why You Should Go Grain Free

Why you should go grain free

Why You Should Go Grain Free

When many people adopt the keto diet, they do “dirty” or “lazy” keto; they take the “If It Fits In Your Macros (IIFIYM)” approach. In other words, they will eat small amounts of grains if they have room in their macros. However, do grains actually benefit us in any way? Whole grains might, but what about refined grains? With every tasty, grain-filled meal comes some sort of catch with our health. Going grain-free may increase health benefits that are worth investing in rather than not, especially for people on keto. Let’s get into why you should go grain free. Read more why you should consider going grain free...
