The majority of the population rely on sugar (carbs) for energy. Our society as a whole is overfed and undernourished, from processed and refined foods (literally everywhere).
A carb rich diet can cause food cravings, energy highs and lows, moodiness, weight conditions, inflammation and a host of other chronic health issues!
When we train the body to become ketogenic, we switch from using carbs (glucose) as our main fuel source to burning fat (ketones) for fuel.
Unlike carbs, fat keeps us feeling full and provides a sustainable energy, that food isn't constantly on our mind.
We reset our hunger hormones, so we naturally start to regulate our appetite and re-train our pallet.
Our eating habits evolve and reaching for high, sugary foods become a distant memory.
Weight loss feels SO much easier, since you don't feel like you are starving.
In time, we slowly begin to heal the body from the inside out. The brain feels less foggy, food cravings diminish, and a new sustainable energy, with boundless amounts is born!
Remember Quick fixes are NOT realistic for weight loss to be permanent. You achieve short term success, but never lasting results.
The good news is, everything changes when you decide to go KETO. This becomes a LIFESTYLE not another diet, and the vicious cycle stops!
When it comes to nutrition, there is NO one-size fits all approach.
Everyone is biochemically unique. We all have different responses to food, no matter what protocol we follow.
That is why, what works for one person may not work well for the next.
Ketosis is actually a metabolic state and you may be surprised to learn your body has gone into ketosis without you being on a ketogenic diet!
It's a hard pill to swallow telling someone they can't eat carbs EVER again, and it is simply not realistic for many.
I find that when we create really ridged rules around food for a long period time, it almost always triggers some sort of emotional eating, binge eating, or an unhealthy relationship with food or ourselves.
Once we train the body to burn fat for fuel we can strategically add carbohydrates back into the diet. This provides a psychological release and makes eating high fat, a real lifestyle change that people can stick with!
For over 10 years I was a chronic dieter which caused a host of digestive issues, hormonal imbalances not to mention the mental and emotional distress from continuously dieting.
This all changed when I attempted a ketogenic diet. If you can relate to my journey, I am here to tell you Keto is a better way.
Eating a high fat diet allows your body to be more in alignment with its natural biology! Life just feels easier.
