Keto + Low Carb Diet
In the 1980’s North Americans started hearing the message that ‘Fat is Bad’. It’s interesting to note that obesity rates have sky rocketed since we started avoiding fat like butter.
What is bad however, is fat in the presence of sugar or other high carbs. That is a deadly combination.
What is also very bad is trans fats. On the Keto diet, we avoid trans fats and embrace whole healthy fats.
But don’t believe me, I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist. Read what the Harvard Medical School journal has to say about it here.
No! I lost almost 100 lbs before I even heard of MCT oil or collagen! Those products are not ‘weight loss’ products in and of them themselves, but they have amazing health benefits for other reasons.

Yes! In measured amounts, certain fruits are naturally low in carbs. Focus on blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cranberries. These also happen to be high in anti-oxidants.
First, not everybody gets the keto flu and for those that do the symptoms can range from very mild to severe. The important thing to note is that the Keto flu does not have to happen! You can easily prevent it.
Carbs does not equal fiber. Many people end up eating more fiber on Keto then when they ate the standard American diet!
Thankfully on Keto we eat many high fiber foods such as cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts and all those greens!
No, absolutely not! Buy the foods that you can afford to eat on your current budget. Anyone can be successful doing keto no matter what they have available to spend.
Keto is not about organics or grass fed this and that or special supplements and ingredients. Those items do not make a difference in weight loss (if that is your goal).
No, not everything. But if you are new to Keto, you do want to track your carbs at the very minimum at least until you get the hang of it.
In the early stages as you learn about keto and what works for you, it is very helpful to keep track in order to learn and to help you establish new habits.
Journaling is a very useful tool to keep notes and jot down your carbs and other relevant information. Putting pen to paper has been shown to help establish new pathways in your brain to strengthen new habits. (I need that reference that was in my email a few weeks ago)
I have designed a 90 day Keto tracking journal designed to help new people get started to form these habits. You can see the various sizes and cover designs on Amazon here.
