Did you know????

My life changed a couple of years ago when I stopped focusing on food and meal times. I started this journey with exogenous ketones about 3 years ago now. It has been a blast.

I lost 27 lbs of fat, boosted my energy, started sleeping without sleeping pills and got instant clearing of the brain. Sometimes people ask about ketones and what they do for you? Well all of the above and then some. I don’t feel like I’m 62 – I have the energy of a 30 year old. I sleep like a baby at night. I’ve been able to keep my weight off for the first time in my life – (this also has to do with changing my mindset and learning gratitude). My brain functions as it should instead of me being in the middle of a sentence and forgetting what I was going to say.

We have a wonderful product backed by science. A lot of Drs still consider ketosis to be a bad thing, but I’m here to tell you that it is an amazing thing and after 3 years of being on the product, I have no ill side effects. My blood tests come back that of a 30 year old as well. To be honest I wasn’t too unhealthy to begin with, but I was definitely feeling my age when I started.

Between ketones and self development my life has forever changed for the BETTER!

Brain Function and Ketosis

Did you know that as we age or if we have had TBI‘s or PTSD that your brain doesn’t uptake glucose into the brain?

I know that I have experienced less brain fog and clearer thinking since I have been taking exogenous ketones and using a keto lifestyle.

Part of my keto lifestyle includes intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting will give you a brain flush by clearing your mind, awakening your senses, and improving brain function.

Here is a link to an article that talks about the benefits of Intermittent fasting and brain function. https://www.businessinsider.com/fasting-diet-ketosis-brain-body-effects-2017-12

To summarize all of this information, it would seem that our brains work better while our bodies are in ketosis, whether from endogenous ketones or exogenous ketones. In TBI’s or PTSD the trauma that our brains have suffered leads to less capability of the brain being able to uptake glucose.

If you want to try intermittent fasting or ketones that put your body into ketosis in under 30 minutes, don’t hesitate to reach out. There are so many benefits other than feeding the brain, but to me as I age that is one of the biggest things.

What is your BETTER?

Have you started on a keto or low carb lifestyle? When did you start and what have your results been?

Above is a picture of my mother and me in December of 2016. My mom hasn’t done any kind of diet other than the SAD diet all of her life. She has recently started to go a little low carb!!!! Maybe only one piece of bread instead of 3 pieces of bread a day. She has a very high metabolism so she has never really struggled with her weight.

Above is my mom and me in the spring of 2018. As you can see I’ve lost 27 lbs and lost my carb face. I take exogenous ketones every day and I live a keto lifestyle. I do keto about 2-3 weeks out of the month and low carb for about a week out of the month. The difference is how many carbs you actually eat a day. During keto I maintain less than 50 grams a day and during the low carb week I maintain less than 100 grams a day. This has worked extremely well for me, especially since I take the exogenous ketones to put me into ketosis. I feel like I’m 30 instead of 60.

The picture on the left was not my heaviest period of my life but I definitely didn’t feel good about myself and my health was rapidly deteriorating. The picture on the right was 3 months in and I had lost 27 lbs. and my joint pain was gone and my brain was working well because I was feeding it ketones.

I take the exogenous ketones every day to feed my brain and to help me feel younger. I’m just like most women my age, we don’t want to get old! I love how I feel and my health journey is continuing every day.

If you have any questions about exogenous ketones, please feel free to ask. I love helping people to feel BETTER!

What is a Low Carb Keto Lifestyle

We need to talk about the difference between a Low Carb diet, a Ketogenic Diet and a Keto Lifestyle.

A Low Carb Diet generally allows you to have a diet in which less than 30% of your total daily macronutrient calories come from Carbohydrates.

A Ketogenic Diet, however, consists of about 5-10% Carbohydrates, 15-30% Protein and the remaining as fat.

A Ketogenic Lifestyle basically consists of a Ketogenic Diet or a Low Carb Diet and then supplements with pure therapeutic ketones. Click for more information.

I personally do a Ketogenic Lifestyle. I take a supplement every day that puts my body into ketosis in under an hour and not feel guilty because I know my body will still be in ketosis.

Ketosis is where your body is burning fat for fuel. Our bodies do this as a normal part of life – create Ketones in the liver – and that runners high – well that is when you eliminate all the glucose from your body and start burning natural ketones. By taking a supplement, I burn Ketones every day.

When I first started on this lifestyle – I didn’t change my diet and I just added the pure therapeutic ketones. I put my body into ketosis with just supplementing. (you can test it and prove you’re in ketosis) Then about week two I started to eliminate carbs (keeps you from getting the keto flu) til I got into ketosis naturally and with the supplement. This allows it to be a lifestyle instead of a diet (DIEt) I have always felt deprived when I’ve been on a diet.

I used the supplement to help me lose weight but that isn’t really what it is for – that is just a great side benefit. It helps you have more Energy, better Sleep ( I used to have to take sleeping pills), better Mental Focus, Better Mood. It clears the skin, helps preserve the muscles, acts like an appetite suppressant and so many more things. It overall just makes you feel better.

AND for me the biggest benefit is that I have been able to maintain my weight within 3 lbs for the last two years. That is a first for me. I’ve always been able to DIET, but then as soon as I go off the DIET I gain it all back and then some. This time is different. Ketones for me are the way to go. I love my lifestyle and I don’t ever feel deprived.
