Butter Makes Your Pants Fall Off!

This is the video that got me started on my new healthy lifestyle. I’ve done tons of research on the ketogenic diet and keep finding the plentiful benefits.

Thanks to Butter Bob for the inspiration and guidelines that got me started on a more healthy lifestyle. I will definitely be living the low carb life and enjoying the benefits of ketones for energy.

Keto on Vacation?

Just a quick note. I came back from a 3 day Cruise to the Bahamas with all you can eat food and all you can drink bars. Trying to stay on track was not really hard, but also not super easy either. So many foods I could not eat, tons of carb and sugar laden foods. I stuck pretty much to Coors Light and Rum and Diet Coke. There was also lots of foods I could eat, including meats, cheeses, vegetables and salads. Finding food I could eat was not a problem, eating too many times a day, was! (Including going to a buffet when we got back home).   I fasted the day before and weighed in at 207. The morning after coming home my weight was 216. I may fast before going home to California , or just do Intermediate Fasting. I’m actually still on vacation in Florida, we fly home Friday and go back to work on Monday. I can resume my regular Keto diet and cut out alcohol consumption! 08/23/16

What’s with Wheat?

I no longer eat wheat and have never felt better.

‘What’s With Wheat?’ documentary investigates the growing epidemic of wheat intolerance and why after eating wheat for thousands of years, it has been linked to so many health problems.

The Ketogenic Life Style

WHATS SO GREAT ABOUT THE KETO LIFESTYLE?

While on a ketogenic diet, your body will switch from burning sugar (glycogens) and producing insulin, to burning and using fat (ketones).

Keto Diet is a Low Carb, High Fat and Moderate Protein way of eating.

Fat about 75-80%, Carbs at or under 20 grams and protein (depending on your lean body mass) 80-100 grams.

You will get most of your daily calories from FAT. Beef (preferably Grass fed), Fish (avoid farm raised), Bacon, Eggs(free range), Cheese, Butter (also preferably from grass fed cows), Nuts (like Macadamia or Pili) and many other high fat foods.

Carbs, preferably from leafy green and Coniferous Vegtables. Salads, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts, turnips, radish, and many others, preferably locally bought organic.

You get plenty of protein from the foods listed above, and it is not recommended that you use protein supplements, like the power drink mixes sold in stores.

The great advantage of the Ketogenic Lifestyle is:

decreased  Appetite, Cognitive Improvement,  Physical Performance, Reduced Blood Pressure, loss of Belly Fat, Improved Cholesterol Levels, and Loss of  Weight. Some science studies are showing that ketosis can be beneficial in treating brain disorders, and possibly inhibiting cancer cell production. Many people have been able to reverse type 2 diabetes.

My personal experience with keto is: weight and fat loss, increased energy, improved brain function and clarity. My blood pressure is stable at under 119/83 to 110/69 after a week without my medication. my weight went from 236 on June 14th to 208 on August 12th. I feel great having no sugar or processed food. I never feel hungry, and can easily fast for a day or two.

Good Oils Verses Bad Oils

-Go2jbaPJtH-zsvvIn the chart above, shown in blue, are the good oils with saturated fat, with green (monounsaturated fat) in second, and unhealthy oils in purple. As you can see, opposite of what we have been taught. Living Keto, we learn fat is our friend! Fat doesn’t make us fat or clog our arteries. Unhealthy oils ( corn, canola, soy bean, safflower, peanut, sesame, and other vegetable based oils). These oils are unnatural, and contain high amounts of Omega-6,  which are harmful in large amounts. Vegetable oils, (VO) contribute to inflammation, are loaded with Trans fats, can raise your risk of cardiovascular disease, and on and on. Almost all processed and fast foods contain large amounts of VO’s. Anything that is “Partially Hydrated” and fried foods are harmful to mankind, causing a huge amount of damage to our bodies. See links at the bottom for more harmful effects!

Plant based oils, including Olive oil and Coconut oil are good for our bodies. The benefits include treatment for diabetes, heart problems, arthritis, high cholesterol, weight loss, metabolism, digestion, aging and a variety of cancers. The Food and Drug Administration recommends 2 tablespoons of olive oil every day to reduce the risk of heart disease. Coconut Oil Contains Fatty Acids With Powerful Medicinal Properties, and can kill harmful Microorganisms. These are just some of the benefits, see the link below.

Know your body and especially know what your putting into it.

Knowledge is power and your health is all you have!
