How to Prep for Beginning Keto

I don’t know about you but any time I get interested in something I research the TON out of it. I watch youtube videos, read articles, find books, and ask questions to every person I know that has information about the topic. So, I learn.

When I first heard about the ketogenic way of eating I did the exact same thing before I began. Now, a year later I made a video of the essentials to have on hand when beginning this lifestyle. It’s a very short list but it really is the basics as to what I needed and what I know has helped both me and the community of others that I’ve gone through the past year with.

So, when prepping to begin keto what are some MUST HAVES to have on hand and in your home?

  1. MACRO & Food Logging App // I recommend Carb Manager. Here’s a video on how to use it: How to Use the Carb Manager App
  2. Vitamins & Electrolyte Tablets
  3. Oils & Healthy Fats
  4. Exogenous Ketones // Only use the best! It’s an investment into your health & body. Here’s a link to my fave: Exogenous Ketones
  5. Fun Water Bottles
  6. A Supportive & Encouraging Community! Here’s a link to my FREE Facebook community: Finding Keto Joy

Caramel Apple Iced Tea W/Ketones?!

My kids are almost out of school and that screams “ALMOST SUMMER!” to me. Enjoying yummy refreshing summer drinks on a ketogenic or low carb diet doesn’t need to be difficult, but it can sure feel that way sometimes!

That’s why I’m psyched that Caramel Apple Keto Kalm Tea came out today, even for just a limited time!IMG_8357

What is Keto Kalm Tea?

This tea has pure therapeutic exogenous ketones inside that will fuel your brain, put you into ketosis quickly, relieve stress, and curb cravings.

I’ve had this tea mixed with hot water before and while it’s sweet, it’s super yummy. Now to discover that I can use a 1/2 or whole packet, depending on sweetness preference and turn it into a perfect summer drink? Yes please!

This flavor will only be available for a very limited time so if you’re looking for that perfect keto friendly refreshing summer drink, you’ve found it!

10 Minute Workouts I Love

I pay for a gym membership that I use do not use regularly. But I realized something recently; the reasons I don’t go may be legitimate but they don’t need to be final answers. How else can I accomplish the same thing but make it work in my life with the schedule I have, right now? I can work out from home and it doesn’t need to cost anything or take up an incredible amount of time! Some type of workout is better than no workout right?

I follow a keto lifestyle which means that regular cardio exercises aren’t really what I need to do. The best thing for this type of lifestyle is to do some weight training. Did you know that your own body weight counts as weight training… um, yeah. So I found a couple YouTube videos posted by Pamela RF that I think are just amazing.

She doesn’t spend any time talking, at all. She just starts doing the exercise, a 30 second clock starts to countdown, and you work out for 10 minutes. For real, I’ve felt more burn and experienced more sweat from these two videos than from anything else I have done in at least a year.

Check out the playlist I made of my favorites so far:
