Don’t Blame Keto for What the Carbs did!

Don’t Blame Keto for What the Carbs did!

Don’t Blame Keto for What the Carbs did!

Not being honest about our carb consumption (or how many ‘one and done’s we’ve had) might make us blame keto for the lack of results. The truth is, carbs matter. What else matters is are we actually tracking? Are we metabolically challenged? Are we menopausal? These things make it much harder to get back into the zone as fast as people not in these categories. Read more..

Motivational Monday: Been doing Keto awhile? Don’t be afraid to Mix it Up!

If you’ve been doing keto for longer than about 6 months, do you do the same thing every day? Same macros? Same foods? Eating at the same time most days?

There are a lot of benefits to mixing things up... Read here more about them...

Motivational Monday: Summer’s Coming! On Track or Not Tracking?

Woo hoo, winter is FINALLY over and summer is just around the corner, and so is bathing suit season! If you haven’t been on your game, you still have time to turn this thing around and feel amazing in the skin you’re in before summer gets here. I can’t tell you how many times summer would come along (pre-keto), I would try on last year’s clothes and how disappointed I felt in myself when they were all tight.  It’s especially upsetting when you know you could have changed things earlier but chose not to, and now here we are. Yes, the past year has been tough in so many ways.  It has not been easy for any of us.  I can tell you that I have gained weight (for the first time in 4 years) and it’s upsetting.  But you know what would be even worse?  Not doing anything about it. Have a good talk with yourself.  What’s done is done.  The past cannot be rewritten but the future is now.  NOW is the time to take action! There is still a good 6+ weeks left before summer (depending on where you live), still plenty of time to get it together, if you need to get it together. But here’s the thing, you need to... Own it Be real with yourself.  Own what you are doing or not doing. Tip: Look yourself in the mirror and give yourself a pep talk.  Tell her she is worth it! Guessing isn’t Knowing You can wing it all you want, but nothing will give you the same results as tracking.  Tip: If you just can’t track, at least track your carbs. Make a Plan Decide what you’re going to do with your keto plan.  Regular keto?  Intermittent fasting? Make a plan!  Tip: Clean out your cupboards and get rid of (or put out of sight) your trigger foods, things you can’t seem to say no to.  Buy the foods that are going to make you successful.  Plan your menu ahead of time.

Motivational Monday: Your Blood Sugar is your Willpower... Minute to Minute

Ever wonder why sometimes you can walk by the coffee station filled with donuts and cookies and not even give them a glance, and other times someone just MENTIONS a donut and you jump in your car and drive to the nearest Krispy Kreme?

It’s probably your blood sugar.

Motivational Monday: My Favorite Nutrient Dense Keto Foods!

A big mistake some keto’ers make is being more concerned about the carb macro count than the nutrients in their food. Over time this will rear its ugly head in the way of vitamin and mineral deficiencies (which can become health problems); we don’t want that. Not only will it affect our health, but it will affect our energy and weight loss! Talk about a ‘lose-lose’ double whammy!

Motivational Monday: Ways to do OMAD

Out of all the fasting protocols out there, my personal fave is OMAD (one meal a day).  This way of fasting gives us autophagy, greater fast loss than eating more meals a day, and you still get to eat your one meal per day (most choose dinner, as it’s usually the most enjoyable and social meal).

What are some of the benefits of doing OMAD?  Let me count thy ways! Read more..
