Part 3 of my 3 part Simple Secret Nutrition Hacks to get a Tighter—Toned Body (it does not include starving, counting calories, or eliminating carbohydrates)…

Intermittent Fasting – The greatest game changer of all when it comes to getting that tighter-toned body…

 

If you are looking for a game changer when it comes to leaning out your body then intermittent fasting may be the missing link you need.

 

Let me start with a story.

 

One of my clients was eating a low carb diet, exercising 4-5 days a week, & drinking her gallon of water daily but had plateaued in her fat loss. The scale had stopped moving. She was frustrated and was preparing to do more cardio.

 

I’m a huge fan of balance throughout the week.  To help her push past this frustration, I suggested that she try the keto reboot.  The Keto Reboot is a method that incorporates a 60-hour ketone fast and then a 16:8 eating window. A 16:8 eating window is where you eat for 8 hours a day and then fast for 16 hours.   Within a few short weeks, she had lost 8 lbs and had less bloated feelings. This was eye opening to me and to her.

They were exactly the results that we needed without salvaging time and precious muscle.

 

What is Intermittent Fasting?

 

It is a method of eating where you cut down the hours of the day to a specified window of time.  How you do it depends on what your body can tolerate and your own specific goals.

 

The 3 most common Intermittent Fasting methods for fat loss are:

 

  1. 16:8 window. Typically you eat from 12-8 or 10-6. You usually skip breakfast and then eat lunch through dinner. You can add in a bulletproof coffee and pure therapeutic ketones in the morning to sustain you.
  2.  14:10 window. Eating from 8-6 only or 10-8. Again have a bulletproof coffee and ketones outside your eating window. This may be a gentler way to start for women’s hormones and blood sugar. (this worked best for me to start).
  3. 5:2 or Fast Diet: Twice a week (nonconsecutive days), you restrict calories to around 500 calories a day (600 calories for men), and for the other five days, you eat as if you are not on a diet.

 

You can also combine them. I am doing the 3rd option each week along with the 10-hour eating window (2nd option).

What are the benefits?

 

There are 3 major benefits to incorporating intermittent fasting

 

  • It enhances hormone function to burn belly fat and help you lose weight. 
  • Fasting raises your human growth hormone (HGH) levels (by five times!)
  • Lowers insulin levels, and increases leptin (the hormone that decreases hunger and increases metabolic rate).

 

  • It can help you recover from workouts and have less pain in the body by reducing inflammation.
  • It will make your body’s resistance to free radicals stronger and more efficientIt will then, in turn, get rid of inflammation. Inflammation is the bodies biggest pathway to disease and causes pain.

 

  • It gives your body that tighter–more toned look by increasing the breakdown of fat in the body, which is then used for energy.
  • Intermittent fasting increases metabolic rate by four to 14 percent and will reset your body from burning sugar as fuel to burning fat. Fat burn is the key to a tighter more toned body 4 life.

 

If you have plateaued and have been doing everything right in workouts, water, & sleep then it may be time to start some IF. If you want less pain and inflammation in your body then this is something to try.

Part 2 of my 3 part Simple Secret Nutrition Hacks to get a Tighter—Toned Body (it does not include starving, counting calories, or eliminating carbohydrates)…

 

Continuing on the conversation from last week. I am going to share with you the simplest secret of ALL time here. It is the first thing that you can do to prove to yourself that you are ready to make a change and stick with it  (with the least amount of investment in time or finances).

 

My hope is that you will believe, trust, and do what I am telling you as a first step to a Tighter—Toned Body.

 

I remember it like it was yesterday I was all set to do my very first bodybuilding competition.

 

I had dreamed about it for years.

 

I had been a personal trainer for a while and my body was in good shape. I knew in my heart that I would excel at bodybuilding. I was petite and put on muscle easily. I loved working with weights, the toughest workouts, and had A LOT of self-discipline. I endured 5 labor and deliveries with no epidurals or pain meds. I had started a business from the ground up in my free time and helped countless women start their journey on weights and make lasting changes to their health and bodies.

 

I was ready to prove to myself and the world that I would rock this thing. I would have been willing to work out 15 hours a day or eat the smallest no carbohydrate diet out there to see results if that was what it would take.

 

Imagine my surprise when my trainer Shelly told me that one of the biggest and most important things that I had to do was to drink a gallon and a half of water daily. She suggested I grab a gallon jug and fill it. I thought ok—easy anything else? I had seen countless guys at the gym throughout the years with their milk jug full of water.

 

I got this!  

 

Imagine my other surprise when I found that it actually became like a job to drink that much water a day. It was tougher than I thought. Many days 8 pm would roll around and I would still have an entire gallon to guzzle. Like a boss I would do it and not only be up all night long but get vertigo like crazy (electrolyte flush).

 

I was astounded though how lean tight—toned my body got in the first 3 weeks of diligently drinking that much water. I will fast forward for you that I won first place and became an IFPA pro by leaning out to 8 percent body fat.

I can safely say that with the utmost confidence that I know if I had followed all of the other steps that Shelly had given me to get my body that tight—toned and lean without the extra water intake I would not have leaned out.

 

I realize that most of us are not looking to get to that level of leanness. It still makes sense that it is vital for any person that wants a tighter-toned body to increase their water intake. No matter what the end goal may be.

 

Here are some simple practical answers to common questions I get on how to get focused and started drinking more water everyday.

 

How Much Water Should you Drink to get a Tight—Toned Body?

I recommend drinking at minimum half of your body weight in ounces a day.

If you weigh 180 pounds then you would drink 90 ounces (a little under a gallon a day).

 

Do Other Liquids Count Toward your Daily Goal?

Do not not take in to account coffee, teas, or sodas. Keep it simple by keeping track of water intake only.

 

How do you Keep track of your Water Intake?

The simplest way to keep track and stay on target for the day is to invest in a 24-32 oz water bottle. You can do simple things to keep track like putting 3 -4 rubber bands around your bottle and put them all at the bottom but as you finish move one to the top and so on until all the 3-4 have been accounted for the day.

 

How do you Pace your Water Intake?

Start drinking right when you wake up. In order for you to stay on pace and not get dizzy and be up all night long you need to keep a steady water pace throughout your day. This means try to drink your first bottle from wake-up to mid morning. Then start bottle 2 and so on…

I have talked with some women that say they are not allowed at meetings or during the day to continue to drink and just do not have the time to stay on pace. This is why I always insist that this is the first and most vital step to proving to yourself and others around you that you are serious about taking care of yourself. It does require focus to make change.

What are the other Benefits to Drinking More Water?

You will discover many other benefits to drinking more water such as:

 

Reduced Hunger

The more water you drank the less hungry you’ll feel. I discovered that in the past when I thought I was hungry I really was dehydrated. This staved off hunger throughout the day. I was more able to stick with my healthy eating.

 

Less Mindless Eating

Drinking water can become a fun past time. It will occupy your mind and have a greater side effect of taking place of the mindless eating in your day.

 

Increased Focus and Energy

When your water is on point for the day ALL other things in your life just come into focus. Think about how you feel after you wake up and get that workout in – you feel focused, energized, and ready to go.

 

Faster Metabolism

Drinking more water increases your metabolism. Having a faster or slower metabolism simply means have more (faster) or (less) reactions. When you put water in your body it creates a reaction so the more you drink the more reactions, which in turn means faster metabolism.

If you are ready to change your body in the simplest way possible this is it. When I say that you can start this minute that is the truth. It costs barely anything. I think it is a HUGE sign when you can master this one that you are serious about wanting to change your body and health for the long-term.

Consider it a test to be able to add in more COMPLICATED nutrition parameters…

Once you have this down you are ready for more.


Why do YOU invest so much into others BUT invest so little into YOU?

Why is so easy for us to spend money on other peoples art & entertainment but when it comes to investing in ourselves we will most times not even consider it? We will make the investment in something but then discover that it is too much work? Let’s face it we all know that when it comes to our pop generation culture that sports, music, & movies are the king that is where we as Americans spend our money. We love to get behind and buy other peoples success and hard work. It is a billion dollar industry. There is nothing wrong with loving the hard work and success of others and enjoying being entertained. When people share their talents and work hard at a craft it can be mind-blowing to watch for sure! Think about watching Michael Jackson dance with ease or a violinist play a beautiful solo or watching Randy Moss make that touchdown catch! The sad part of that is the flip side that often times we do not realize the gifts and talents that WE have inside of us. We are busy buying and celebrating others when a miracle lies within us.

The only way I have seen the greatness in myself is to fail, to be stretched—tried, and to invest in myself. When I was in elementary school I had a lot of anxiety. Growing up in an alcoholic home was chaotic. I put such a thick mask on so that no one could see the pain and the chaos that I was going through. I just wanted to be normal I thought—like all of the other kids. I may have walked out of a house to go to my bus stop to interact with other kids seconds after my Mom was yelling and cursing at me. This was my reality. I would smile and show the world a happy me a pleasing me. Fit in, fit in, fit in right? Well, I eventually lost sight of my emotions and who I authentically was. Escaping into others arts made sense. Mine was lost in the desire to fit in at all costs.

As I have grown into an adult I have learned to take care of me. I have invested much money and time into myself and started to learn who I really am. I have discovered that I am a work of art that needs to be created. I can then better create all of the things that I love and hold dear in this life. I work hard and I am consistent. I have discovered that I am worth the investment. I have a lot to offer this world but it just does not magically happen.

My hope is that this may inspire even just one person to think about how valuable investing in your self can be. That one person would be inspired to find their own creativity. That one person may see that they are gifted or special enough to invest in. Is it that it is easier to find our escape and chalk it up to the fact that we there are only a select few that are so-called “good enough” or “gifted” enough to go out there and do it? Could it be subconsciously that we are inspired when we pay for and watch others be creative?

Simple Nutrition Hacks to get your Body Tight and Lean (Without starving, counting calories, or eliminating carbohydrates)…

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing 3 simple hacks to get your body tight—toned and lean for life – without starving, counting calories or eliminating carbohydrates.

 

I know, it’s hard to believe, but it’s true.  

 

I’ve done it and so have many of my clients and friends.  I promise to make you a believer.

 

Just like Leeza.

 

Leeza came to me shortly after losing 40 lbs. She had lost the weight by doing cardio (boxing & treadmill) and by drinking low-calorie meal replacement shakes.

 

She was happy with her progress so far but had reached a plateau. Leeza was stuck at her current weight and body size for months and felt helpless that the method of starving and cardiovascular exercise that had gotten her this far was no longer working.

 

Leeza was tired, cranky, & defeated. She wanted to see muscle tone in her arms, legs, and midsection and get tighter-toned and leaner.  She came to me for help.

 

I started her on a plan I call Carbohydrate Cycling and within a few weeks, she started losing weight.  As a part of the plan, she ate more nutrient-dense whole foods (along with the occasional slice of pizza and doughnut). She was maintaining her muscle while burning fat.

 

Her body quickly responded and became tight—toned and lean within a few months. She now felt more relaxed and free to do the other things in life that she wanted to do. She had a plan that worked for her consistently. When she plateaued we would change a few details and her metabolism would kick in and she would start losing again.

 

Pure freedom and bliss for Leeza. No more cutting calories and endless cardiovascular hours.


What is Carbohydrate Cycling and why does it work?

It simply means to eat higher carbohydrates on 2-3 days of the week and on the other 4-5 days of the week your carbohydrates are decreased.  

 

It is that simple.

 

What are Carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates are foods containing greater amounts of sugar and starch.  They are a source of fuel the body uses as energy. Our body burns through carbohydrates as a fuel called glycogen. It is the simplest and fastest fuel source for the body.

 

Samples of carbohydrate-rich foods include:
Vegetables
Potatoes
Fruits
Grains
Hummus/Beans
Rice
Oats
Quinoa
Pastas—Rice and whole wheat
Processed foods (simple sugars)

What are Proteins?  

It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Your body uses it to build and repair tissue. You need it to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.


Fish
Chicken
Beef
Pork
Whey Shakes/Bars
Nuts
Eggs

What are Fats?  

The body uses fat as a fuel source, and fat is the major storage form of energy in the body. Fat also has many other important functions in the body, and a moderate amount is needed in the diet for good health.

Coconut Oil
Avocados
Avocado oil
Olive oil




A great example of a moderate long-term plan week would look like:
High Carbohydrate =HC
Low Carbohydrate= LC
M = LC
T=LC
W=HC
TH= LC
F=LC
S=HC
SU= LC

An example of a High Carbohydrate Day would be:
Breakfast— 3 Egg Whites and ½ Cup of oatmeal berries
Snack – Rice cakes with tuna
Lunch -Sushi Rolls (rice) and seaweed salad apple
Snack—Doughnut
Dinner—Chicken vegetables and Sweet potato (light butter) or hamburger with bun and homemade french fries
Snack—Air Popped Popcorn—wine

The key is to eliminate your fats such as fattier proteins like beef, nuts, and nut butter on LC days and replace them with carbohydrates.
Eat clean nutrient-dense carbohydrates most of the day but throw in a few processed carbs to treat yourself.

An Example of an LC Day would be:

Breakfast- 2 Whole Eggs ½ Avocado- a slice of Bacon
Snack-Quest Protein Bar +Pure Therapeutic Ketones
Lunch-Salad (green veggies) Chicken, Olive oil and Lemon Juice Dressing with Sunflower Seeds

Snack-2 Hard Boiled Eggs, 23 Almonds
Dinner-Steak, mushrooms broccoli
Snack-Shake Avocados-whey protein -almond milk ice and kale

Most of your days will be LC the key is to fill up on low sugar nutrient dense proteins and fats. Look at the list and mix and match. Stay away from starchy and processed carbohydrates those days.
Simple…simple…simple

I guarantee you will get a leaner more tight body by carbohydrate cycling. It will give you more energy and regulate your hormones by keeping your blood sugars at bay. Carb Cycling will get rid of inflammation in your body.

I am so excited for you to start learning what TRULY works SIMPLY for a tighter—toned and leaner body 4 life.

Ketones Didn’t Just Work For Me… Read on To See How My Friends and Family Got Rid of Anxiety, Sugar Cravings, and Belly Fat Once and For All

Last week I wrote about how I got better energy, fat loss, & sleep by drinking pure therapeutic ketones.

 

This week I want to share the results that people with ALL different goals, health issues, & nutrition accomplished by living a ketogenic life.

 

After I had such a positive experience I had to share it with others around me.

 

Larry, my husband, had an autoimmune disorder that affected his thyroid. This, in turn, made him more susceptible to belly-fat, anxiety, and sugar cravings.

 

He was an avid exerciser and had a generally clean diet of fruits, yogurt, nuts, and whole grains. Despite his best efforts of adding cardio and extra workouts he still struggled with extra fat around his midsection. He felt hangry all of the time and never missed a meal.

 

He started drinking pure therapeutic ketones 1-2x a day…

 

Larry never noticed the immediate energy burst that I had. His process took more time. He diligently drank the ketones for 30 days until he noticed that he no longer was “hangry” for carbs, had less anxiety, & started burning belly fat.

 

I knew he had turned the corner when I came home one night and he had forgotten to make dinner.

 

After the initial 30 days, his results took skyrocketed and he lost 22 lbs off of his midsection for the first 

 

 time in his life and has kept it off for over 2 years!

 

I no longer nag him to eat healthier he just starting feeling better and lost the belly fat!! His Cravings were gone.

 

Holly, one of my employees, was not one to regularly workout. She was over the age of 50 and wanted to lose fat around her midsection – more specifically, her hips.

She drank 2 packets of ketones a day for 30 days, made small dietary changes, and did not exercise. In 30 days she noticed an increase in energy, better sleep, less brain fog and best of all to her– 6 inches off of her hips!

 

Holly could not deny that even without exercise she was seeing results in her body.

 

Mindy, a personal training client, followed a consistent weekly cardio and strength program. She was in her 30s and had been following a ketogenic cycle diet (ate freely carbs 2 days a week).

She wanted more tone in her arms, midsection & better energy throughout her day.

Mindy was a client that previously had been starving her body and doing loads of cardio to lose weight. She had plateaued and was no longer seeing any results. Her metabolism had slowed from loss of muscle and stress.

 

This is a common theme amongst women…

 

So common that I wrote about her story to help educate and inspire women to stop this vicious cycle in a book I co-authored Fuel Your Soul Transform Your Body.

After drinking the pure therapeutic ketones 1-2 x daily for 30 days she noticed an increase in strength, toned arms, and fat loss in her belly. She also had fewer sugar cravings and found it easier to say no to carbs and stick with her ketosis( 5% carbs daily) eating plan during the week.

 

It sure made her life easier and mine as her trainer. She started to see the results quicker.  She no longer was craving sugar all of the time. This product gave her the staying power she needed to stay disciplined and easily stick to her ketogenic nutrition plan.

 

After seeing such great results with so many people that I care about I would love to share them with you!

Are You In Need of Better Sleep, Energy and Fat Loss…

I Have the Answer for you in the Form of A Simple Drink…Read my Review about this Popular Supplement that is Highly Effective at Burning Fat and giving you more energy

A better way to fuel your body and get the better fat loss, sleep, and energy in the form of a drink.

It will get your body in ketosis to start burning your own body fat and stop sugar cravings in just 30 minutes.

 

I was a Skeptic at First. Could a Simple Drink Burn Fat and Give Me Energy?

 

I was such a skeptic, in fact, I ignored the sample for 2 months

 

My fear was the drink might make me sick or it would hurt my body.

 

It just sounded too good to be true.

 

As I look back I can see how irrational those thoughts were. I mean wasn’t my high sugar weekend binges more harmful than this all-natural fuel source on my desk?

 

You see I considered myself a purist. I have found success with clients and myself by eating clean-whole foods; never processed (except on weekend binges–healthy right?).

So you can understand my hesitation around drinking pure therapeutic ketones.

 

It seemed too easy…

 

When I finally reluctantly tried it for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. I drank it before a workout and felt energy immediately.

 

My workout was on fire and I could think clearly. Fast forward to later in the day I discovered that my cravings for sugar were non-existent and I slept like a log.

 

I was astonished at my personal results just by drinking a simple drink.

 

I wasn’t miserable at all and I didn’t have to muster nearly as much self-discipline as before. It just happened naturally.

 

I thought could this be a way for clients to get better results and still enjoy their life?

 

After seeing the benefits that we all had I could no longer be a skeptic. I saw first hand the power of this simple drink. I can now not help but to spread the word of how this simple drink can help you get better:

  • Fat loss
  • Sleep
  • Energy
  • Muscle Tone
  • Less Cellulite
  • Decrease Anxiety
  • Get Rid of Sugar cravings

What is the best way to use Pure Therapeutic Ketones for best results?

The best way to use pure therapeutic ketones for the best results is to first figure out what your goals are and where you need to see better in your day.

If you need more energy in your workouts then drink your ketones 30 minutes before your workouts for more consistent energy and strength.

If you have that 3 pm energy crash and sugar cravings drink your ketones at 2 pm to ward off any afternoon crash and stave off sugar cravings.

If you simply need better fat loss and tone in your arms then drink your ketones twice a day in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon. That will make your body a fat burning machine all day long.

Feeling Lazy, Tired and Run-down? Your Body May Be Asking for a Detox…Read on for 5 Reasons Why You Should Detox NOW…

Feeling Lazy, Tired and Run-down?

Your Body May Be Asking for a Detox…Read on for 5 Reasons Why You Should Detox NOW…

 

Detoxifying our bodies and digestive systems will boost your immune system (keep you from getting sick, increase energy, dropping 10 years off your age, help you look younger and more youthful, stop sugar cravings, get rid of pain, help our bodies to burn fat, reboot and lose weight faster (and keep it off).

Here are 5 Reasons to detoxify NOW:

  1. You have sugar or carbohydrate cravings

Ever feel the need to hit the cookie jar at 8 pm? Or reach for the sugary drink mid-afternoon? This is a good indication that you suffer from the dreaded ‘sugar/carb crave’.

 

You find yourself trying to eat healthily and give up junk food but a few days later you’ve given in to the crave.

 

Detoxing will help to curb those cravings. Sugar lights up the brain and sends dopamine (a powerful chemical) into the brain. Our brain feeds off of that and tells us that we need more over and over. We, therefore, cannot break that cycle while still indulging in small amounts of sugar. We need to eliminate it from our bodies, kitchens, and minds.

 

  1. You are low on energy

It’s 3 pm and you’re crashing. You feel the sugar calling you for your afternoon pick me up.

This is a common occurrence resulting from spikes in blood sugars due to too many carbs and sugar.

A detox will give your digestive system a rest which in turn will help your blood sugars to stabilize. You will no longer have that energy crash midday. You will feel energized and stable throughout your day – and every day.

 

  1. You no longer fit into your clothes or are gaining weight in your midsection

Have you ever searched through your closet for something to wear and recognized that all of your clothes no longer fit? Are your hopes to fit back into that smaller dress or skinny jeans starting to wane?

Or…

Have you noticed now that you are getting older all of your weight now settles in all of the wrong places like your midsection and butt?

When you notice that your body is changing and gaining inches in all the wrong places—mainly your midsection and butt this is a symptom of a hormone imbalance. A detox will help your body balance your hormones.

As we age our hormones can get out of balance causing insulin spikes and inflammation which then tells our body to store energy as fat instead of energy.

When we can create a balanced insulin hormone level with a detox for the body it will burn our fat for fuel instead.

A detox will help you to lose fat around the midsection and get rid of inflammation getting you back into those skinny jeans again!

  1. You initially lose weight but are unable to keep it off

Have you have mustered up the self-discipline and restricted yourself (or starved) for a time and lost weight initially but as soon as you took your eye off the ball you gained it all back.?

 

A detox will help your body to get back on track for the long term.

When you eat healthy whole foods, drink more water, and get the better sleep your body will start to work as it is supposed to work.

Your cortisol levels (stress hormone) will decrease and you will feel better than ever creating balance and harmony in your body.

You will start to consistently lose body fat and maintain muscle so that your body will keep the weight off 4 life.

Finally, say goodbye to the diet cycle of weight loss and regain.

 

  1. You want to look younger or stop the aging process

You have started to notice more fine lines and wrinkles on your face in your brow and forehead…

Or

You have noticed the underside of your arm is now waving uncontrollably even after you have stopped waving your arm…

A detox will help you to get a tighter more toned appearance in your body by helping to maintain your muscle and signaling your human growth hormone to increase. HGH will help you to naturally slow down the aging process reducing your fine lines and wrinkles.

 

I remember after I first detoxified my body I felt and looked amazing. My sugar cravings were non-existent and even when I reintroduced sugar and processed foods again it was short lived. I didn’t feel good. I knew that those foods were not helping my body and hormones. I looked younger and all of the lower back pain I had been suffering with for years virtually went away.

We all struggle with finding the time to exercise. It’s tough, life gets busy, things happen and we don’t make ourselves a priority. It’s ok, I get it.   The key is to schedule your workouts as you would any other appointment in your week.

 

Take a moment before your week starts, pull out your calendar, and schedule your workout times.

 

Having trouble finding the time? How about getting up earlier or putting down the TV remote in the evening and working out instead. Whatever you do make sure to schedule it and get it on the calendar.

 

Another solution – hire a personal trainer. Having that ‘Appointment’ with your trainer holding you accountable than guarantees that your workout will not be missed.

 

When I assume that I will find time in my day to workout 9 times out of 10 I miss my workout for that day. I get busy with things and then by the end of the day I talk myself out of it. I use my excuses like “it is too late” or “I am way too tired”.

 

When I simply have it on my calendar as an appointment I make it work. I then look back on my successful week of workouts and I feel so good as I see results in my body and self- esteem2.

2. Lay out your workout clothes the night before.

Before you go to bed simply take out your workout clothes and set them next to your bed. (Or, do like I do sometimes and sleep in your workout clothes).

That will make for a quick transformation out of bed into workout clothes and off to your workout.

If you workout in the evening you can still pack your bag before you go to bed and take it with you wherever you go throughout the day.

Have the bag in your car so the excuse of “I don’t have my clothes” is gone. Prep and be intentional so that your subconscious does not have a chance to give in to skip the workout.

Let’s face it. We all get tired. And when we’re tired, we look for reasons not to do the things we want to do. Prep your clothes and go. No time to talk yourself out of it.  It is crucial to your success.

3.Plan and Prep your meals

Meal prep has been proven to be the most effective habit you can do to achieve optimal health and fitness.

 

Having a ketone packet….packed and ready to go…

 

Grab and go Tupperware in your fridge….

 

Some examples – chicken breast grilled, crockpot chicken, salads, veggies, precooked and segmented…..

 

On the weekend before your week start to make a grocery list based off of the meals that you have on your nutrition plan. Then shop and prep the meals when you have some downtime. That way when the busy week starts you do not find yourself skipping meals or making unhealthy food choices.

 

When I spend 20 minutes to make my list and another 60 minutes to prep them. I find myself so much more successful. I stick to my plan even when I am faced with unhealthy options at work. I have my food with me and know my intentions.

 

 

These 3 simple things are the key to your success on your journey to a tight—toned body.

If you want to get there fast do these 3 simple things and watch it happen.

Prep, Prep, & Prep and you will see success!

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail—Benjamin Franklin

Keto – Is it Too Good to Be True?

Ketosis, ketogenic, Keto…all words that we’re hearing more and more these days.

It is being talked about by celebrities, personal trainers, and weight loss groups all over the country.  It seems everyone has something to say about the ketogenic diet.

I have even heard keto diet being talked about by my husband’s mom and women in our fitness studio over the age of 60. From what they tell me, this popular diet has been around for ages.  It is gaining popularity quickly as a means to lose weight, lose fat and gain muscle and tone in your body.

The truth is, when things get popular it can be both good and bad.

The good is that more and more people are discovering the typical standard American diet may not be the best for our health.

After years of following the recommended food pyramid and seeing struggles of people being grossly overweight, watching their loved ones struggle with diseases from diet such as diabetes, heart disease, and an overall poor quality of life, folks are ready to look at other alternative avenues for diet and nutrition.

The bad is the low level of understanding people have about what ketosis really is. There is a lack of knowledge on how to best use it to benefit your health and body.

I want to shed some light on the myths that surround ketosis. 

But first, what is a Ketogenic Diet?

The keto (ketogenic) diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that switches the fuel source of energy your body uses to function. Instead of using glucose from carbohydrates (your body’s preferred energy source) for fuel, you burn fat instead— whether it’s fat from your diet or your own stored body fat. When you eat a low enough level of carbohydrates (usually about 20–50 net grams) for several days in a row, you enter the metabolic state called ketosis, which is what forces your body to break down fat for fuel.

Here are 10 common Ketosis Nutrition Myths.

keto food pyramid 2

Eating keto nutrition is eating no carbs and-restricting fruit and vegetables – it is low carb, not zero carbs and there are no essential carbohydrates known. There are essential fatty acids and essential proteins, but there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. We eat fruit, but we choose nutrient-dense fruit such as berries but stay away from high sugar tropical fruits such as mango, bananas, and pineapple. When you do eat carbs, it is from nutrient-dense lower carb vegetables, nuts, berries, and dairy.  I actually find myself eating more vegetables then I was before. I know that I can have cups of spinach and have almost zero carbs. This is great because I can eat more nutrient dense food. I also feel fuller and have more nutrients.

Keto Food Pyramid

In keto nutrition, you eat far too much meat and protein like Atkins-You eat moderate protein. Too much protein is turned into glucose in the body via gluconeogenesis. In keto, you are encouraged to eat meat that has had minimal intervention such as steaks, roasts, drumsticks, organ meats. There is a huge difference between processed meat such as hot dogs and burgers to meat such as steak, roasts, chops, and ham on the bone. Protein is required for essential amino acids. I have people asking me this all of the time. The truth is the big difference for me is that I now find myself choosing healthy fats instead of protein like I used to on my previous low carb high protein plan. Atkins and Keto vary greatly in that effect.

 

 

 

The diet isn’t varied -When you take out the carbs what is left? Everything else. A high carb diet keeps you from nutrition. A low carb diet keeps you out of junk. This myth is a huge misnomer.  I have discovered so many more recipes and choices for clients and myself with keto. Variety is abundant with this nutrition plan. A sandwich truly has little nutrition when compared to a salad. In fact, when you go low carb, your diet will consist of meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats.

 

 

 

 

keto variety

 

 

You are restricted to what you can eat – In truth, you restrict the products that you eat. If you think about it, every year thousands of new products come into the marketplace. Most of them have some form of added sugar!  In keto, you will eat a huge variety of foods and very limited processed products. The problem is that we and our kids are surrounded by over processed foods and marketed to with the intention of creating a need.  Keto will force you to enjoy the natural state of foods and show your kids and family better options. My kids have had the luxury of understanding and enjoying all sort of fruits, vegetables, smoothies, desserts (sugar-free), pure therapeutic ketones, water, and meats that were never marketed to them. They have learned to love berries, Brussel sprouts, grilled zucchini, guacamole, whipping cream with espresso greens, keto cheesecake, and so much more. Rather than goldfish crackers that last from now until eternity with preservatives. They are not stuck in the processed food list as so many others are.

 

Low carb isn’t sustainable long term-Studies continually show that once people go low carb and give up sugars and grains, they do it for good. That is part of the success of such a way of eating as once you learn how damaging these are to our bodies and appetite, you actually don’t want to touch them again. I found that after a few weeks of keto I lost my cravings for processed carbs. My energy is so on point that I forget about them.

 

Fat for fuel 2

Going without carbs makes you tired because you need carbs for energy – most people report that they have never had so much energy. Fat is a far more sustainable fuel than carbs. Once we use up all our stored carbs (glycogen) we switch to fat burning mode. We have an almost unlimited supply of energy in our fat stores. You will no longer be on the sugar roller coaster, with afternoon slumps and evening munchies. The day is not surrounded by food cravings and slumps after I eat mid-afternoon. Now my energy basically stays the same all day until bedtime. I am not at the whim of my blood sugar. I feel even-keeled. When my hormones are balanced then my body feels balanced. My body has a longer fuel source my own body fat. This is a long slow burning fuel that keeps me going. The only time I felt low in energy is the first 10 days until my body was fat converted. The only other time is if I were to eat sugars and carbs. When I stick with this I have limitless energy.

what is ketosis?

 

Low carb is another fad diet – people have been eating low carb for thousands of generations, it is, in fact, our current high carb food pyramid that should be seen as a fad diet. People tend to use the term ‘fad diet’ as a derogatory term when diets don’t work, but low carb works and it works long term. People have been shown to do very well on low carb.  Ask your grandparents what they did to lose a little weight – they stopped eating bread and potatoes.  Keto has proven to be a permanent way for myself and my clients the results they are looking for.

 

All that fat will give you heart disease – Studies have repeatedly shown that it is the carbs in our diet that increases inflammation, creates the dangerous form of LDL cholesterol carrier, raised triglycerides, raises our risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes (which is one of the biggest risk factors of heart disease). Eating low carb and healthy fats actually reduce every single risk factor. Reducing your carbs will reduce your triglycerides (best predictor of heart disease), reduce blood pressure, improves HDL and improves the size and type of LDL. Honestly, when I was following a low-fat diet my cholesterol went up and my blood sugars while pregnant were high. Now after eating keto my cholesterol and blood sugars are in the normal zone.

We don’t eat enough fiber –The myth of losing fiber from bread and cereals is a persistent myth. Wholegrain bread is quite often processed then the fiber and grains added back in- and then fortified with vitamins. I’d rather get my fiber from whole foods like coconut, nuts, and leafy greens. Tastes 100% better.

Ketosis is dangerous – going low carb does not mean you will be in ketosis all the time. When babies are nursing their body is in ketosis and it is very beneficial to brain development and not at all dangerous. Ketosis is a natural state and fuel source that your body was made to run off of, your body switches to fat burning after all of its glycogen stores are used and will run quite happily on fat. Fat is released from your fat cells into your bloodstream; these fatty acids are turned into ketones, which fuel the body and brain. I have never felt better.

So is keto dangerous? – No, it is a safe and easy way to lose fat and maintain muscle.   Here are just a few of the stories I have personally witnessed from folks that have followed a ketosis diet.

 

808AAD42-F959-4C74-81EA-78228A8E40FC (1)

Laura was a 59-year-old client that was tired, overweight, and had brain fog. She had been taking care of her ailing mother for some time until she had passed away that fall. She came to us desperate for a change. She was ready to invest in herself both physically and mentally. She started drinking pure therapeutic ketones. In a few weeks, her cravings were gone and her energy was up. She felt so great that she started exercising more and following a ketone nutrition plan. A side effect of all of this was that she lost 31 lbs in 5 months!! She felt great with limitless energy and zero cravings!!

 

Karla Before Keto

 

Karla 45-year-old, busy career women, and mom. She was low on energy, gaining belly fat, and simply not feeling like her upbeat self any longer. She was ready for a change. She started drinking pure therapeutic ketones, working out, and cycling her carbs. She started feeling more energy in a few weeks. Her midsection tightened up and she now consistently started looking forward to workouts. Her true self never shined brighter.

Larry testimonial

Larry is a 50-year-old Dad of 5 boys with a full-time career as an insurance underwriter. He was an avid exerciser and in his 40’s discovered he had a thyroid condition “hypothyroidism” this would leave him feeling sluggish and “hangry” for carbs like fruit and yogurt. He also suffered from an autoimmune disorder. He started drinking pure therapeutic ketones and in 90 days had lost 22 lbs around his midsection and was no longer “hangry” and tired all of the time. He has since kept off the weight for over 2 years and his autoimmune symptoms have cleared up after starting a ketosis nutrition plan recently.

My Fitness and Overall Life Mantras to Live By

Life Hacks When You’re Feeling Down…

I am always looking for energy and mantras to live by that match with my own core values around fitness and life.

Some of my core values are that you need to take time to invest in yourself first in order to better serve the world. My experience has been that the only control we have is over ourselves. I know the days where I schedule my workouts and have my meals prepped and ready are my best days. I then have the ability to serve others in my world with vigor and integrity. I believe that knowing who we are and are not is essential to giving your best and feeling the most fulfilled.

  1. One Size Does Not Fit All.

One-Size-Does-not-fit-all

This is my favorite.

This is my daily mantra as so many opportunities and great ideas come flooding my way daily. I have to determine if it fits my size. Just because it is right for them does not make it right for me.

I find the same for clients. There is certainly not a one size fits all exercise and nutrition plan. Why try to twist and turn a person into a size that just won’t be a good fit? I love to find what does fit first. The success rate skyrockets for a person that can find a way to eat right and exercise for them and fits their personality.

  1. Change your thoughts and you’ll change your world.

change-your-thoughts

This is life changing.

When I look at some of my reoccurring thoughts like “this is hard” or “what a struggle this will be” I see why I struggle with some things or make them hard. My thoughts determine how I feel about a situation. My feelings then drive the behavior. So if the thoughts are all about the struggle then the situation I am facing will be more apt to feel that way.

When I change the thought to something along the lines of “this will grow me” I always find a free, flowing solution. It then feels as though a challenge becomes a growth opportunity or a problem to be solved.

Anytime I am facing a new situation that is foreign to me as a new nutrition plan, workout, or business venture. I have the choice to look at it as a something that will be hard or a struggle or something that has the capacity to grow me. I find that the way that I think about it creates my reality every time.

Plus—I find inspiration that I am capable of anything when I just put my mind to it and shut out shadow thoughts that do not serve me at the moment.

Shadow thoughts are those old ways of thought that may have served us in the past or short term but no longer serve us to achieve what we want in life.

I love questioning my own ability to achieve and be more. I want to live a free, fit, and fun life by being myself. These mantras remind me how to do that daily.

Remember your core values when considering your daily mantras to live by.

Be sure to post them somewhere that you will be reminded to live by them.

A great way to remember is to write them on a 3×5 card and carry it with you.

Take time in the morning to review and recite them daily.

Write a small heart on your hand to remind you of the mantras that you want to live by.

Think of a color that reminds you of freedom, fitness, or love.

When you see that color you will be reminded of the things that are most important to you.

I use all of those strategies myself daily to remind me of the way I want to do life and stay out of those shadow thoughts.

How about you? I would love to hear some of the mantras that get you going. Please share.
