I eat 200 grams of dietary fat per day. And, in 2 months, I lost 20 pounds and reduced my body fat percentage from 32% to 20%.
I’m in the best (hottest) shape of my life. The kind-of-hot that makes you want to pinch yourself to validate if what you’re experiencing is actually real life.
I have achieved flawless health and hotness through a jacked-up version of paleo – high in whole foods, free of allergens and budding with ridiculously easy meal prep. No pack-along snacks, calorie counting or make-ahead craziness required. This is easy nutrition for real life.
My body has found its happy place. Perfect weight, no cellulite included. Normalized hormone levels, perfect blood pressure, balanced cholesterol and blood sugar, glowing skin, outrageous energy, and zero cravings.
The Keto Beginning is brimming with the strategies and vibrant high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate protein recipes that I used to effortlessly switch into a state of nutritional ketosis – where my body burns fat as energy instead of glucose.
The resources, meal plans and recipes in The Keto Beginning offer a unique guidance system to attaining total body confidence, regulated metabolism, and liberated health without the need to radically reduce (or even counting) calories.
17 chapters, 147 pages + over 70 low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein, dairy-, gluten-, sugar-, grain-, legume-free recipes – this is the lifestyle change that empowers your body + mind to achieve the state of health you’ve been searching for.
All forms of carbohydrate – fruits, vegetables, grains + starches, are broken down into glucose by your body, increasing your blood sugar. Your body considers raised blood sugar as being toxic, so it releases insulin (a storage hormone) to push the glucose into your cells. Once this occurs, your blood sugar decreases, making you hungry again.
The release of insulin halts your body’s ability to release fat and toxins. If you’re eating carbohydrate-based foods every 2-3 hours, your body is never fully able to exercise its ability to rid itself of excess. And, if more carbohydrates are consumed than what your body needs, it will be converted into triglycerides and stored in your blood, leading to weight gain and unbalanced cholesterol.
But, when we lower our intake of carbohydrates, increase our consumption of glorious fats and moderate our protein intake, our blood sugar and insulin levels are reduced, levels of HDL cholesterol increase, and the visceral fats around your vital organs are “eaten up”. This is nutritional ketosis.
In nutritional ketosis, your body becomes a fat-burning machine, effectively breaking down fatty acids into ketone bodies that are used, even by the brain, as fuel. Studies show that nutritional ketosis has the potential of alleviating food cravings, blood sugar irregularities, mind fog, excess body weight, abnormal cell growth, psychological imbalances, infertility and more.
In nutritional ketosis, we’re tripping the metabolic switch, leading to so much more than just weight loss.
Can’t get a handle on your food allergies, you react to everything // Experience bloating // Have energy regulation problems // Are struggling with hormone weight gain // Have tried paleo but still don’t feel “right” // Have a sneaking suspicion that fats work well in your body // Battle with endless food cravings // Are trying to rid yourself of candida but just can’t seem to win // Eat all the time but you’re never really full // Have a hard time gaining or losing weight // Fall asleep after eating // Find that you’re sensitive to carbohydrates + sugar // Are living; or want to live, sugar-free // Can’t stop thinking about food // Are interested in freeing yourself from packing food with you everywhere // Eat every 2-3 hours // Have tried everything and it all sucked // Like to experiment with new things // Like greens // Enjoy feeling energized // Are affected by blood sugar irregularities // Struggle with inconsistent blood pressure… the list goes on. *If you are pregnant, have diabetes type 1, or an existing kidney disease and are interested in nutritional ketosis, it’s best to do so under the direct care of a health care facility.
