January Ketone Experience

 

It’s time for a special ketone experience to kick off 2019! It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a special experience pack but what better time to launch one than the beginning of a new year?

This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.

Best of 2018 // Keto Version

Who doesn’t love a great BEST OF video? Why not do it for those of us who spent 2018 living the ketogenic lifestyle and for those of us who are heading on to that journey in 2019!

This video includes all my “best of” including tools, supplements, workouts, etc. What were the best items for you this year? Do you have recipes that just knocked if out of the park for you? Share share share!

Nutty in All The Right Ways

I have to share the exciting news with you! Nutty Ketoman Kreme is back for a limited time and I don’t want you to miss it. For the majority of my adult life now I start my day with a coffee, as most people do right? Well for the past 8 months or so I’ve removed all cream and sugar from my coffee and instead add a packet (sometimes 1/2 a packet) of Kreme instead. Why? ↓

So yeah, it has DNA repair, reduces joint pain and inflammation, strengthens hair & nails, and so many other things. BUT what does it taste like? I think the Nutty Ketoman tastes like an Italian Praline Cookie, basically an Italian pastry, a Christmas cookie, etc. And what Jersey girl wouldn’t love that right?

How to Make It:

Personally, I mix mine in a shaker bottle with hot black coffee. But you can also mix it with iced coffee, or blend ice & milk of your choice with it for a yummy dessert!

Beginners Guide to Keto

Have you been hearing about the keto/ketogenic diet? Interested but not sure what it’s really all about? The ketogenic diet is a WOE (way of eating) that puts your body into ketosis. Ketosis is when your body is in a state of burning fat instead of burning glucose (sugar, carbs). When your body is in this state it will burn the fat you’re eating plus the stored fat in your body.

How do you get your body into that state? By eating a high fat low carb diet. You restrict your carb intake, eat moderate protein, and a high amount of healthy fats.

How to start? I suggest downloading an food log app to help you calculate your MACROS (fat, protein, & net carbs). I use CARB MANAGER. Start to educate yourself on what foods are keto approved and which ones aren’t. You can even watch some of my videos that follow what I eat throughout an entire day. The hardest part is making the decision to get started, but once you do, you’ll be so thankful that you did.

Who doesn’t love a good biscuit?! Just because you’re eating a low carb or ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you have to go without. Using almond flour, here’s a recipe for Bacon Cheddar Biscuits. They are even better when warmed up the next day. I may or may not even add some butter right on top when eating them.

MACROS per Biscuit

Carbs | 3.1%

Mix together:
2C Almond Flour
1tsp Salt
2 Eggs
2TB Butter, cubed
1.5C Shredded Cheddar

Distribute evenly on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool before eating.
