Fat-Fueled Mornings

As a keto coach, I get clients that run the gamut: some of my clients have only just recently learned of the ketogenic diet, others have tried to adopt this way of eating, with little or no success. and many have experienced the awesome rewards of a committed ketogenic lifestyle.

The newbies, and those who've tried keto before on their own with little success, often come to me confused about the best foods to eat, especially in the mornings. We’ve been told breakfast is the most important meal of the day for so long, it almost feels wrong to skip it... even when we aren’t really hungry yet.

Exogenous vs. Endogenous Ketones

There is a new(ish) fad trending in the ketogenic world as of late: exogenous ketones. You may have heard of them or even know somebody trying to sell them to you.

Coming Into the Light

It’s not an uncommon reaction to try to minimize situations instead of dealing with them head-on. Like, maybe if I’m really quiet, it will all go away.

If you are making some big lifestyle changes, this may sound all too familiar...

It’s April (can you believe it?) and Spring has sprung for sure, at least here in Florida!

Mother Nature did not disappoint.

Stevia and the Importance of Reading Labels

After a client call this weekend, I realized how many of you may still be in the dark about the food you’re bringing into the house. There are a multitude of products out there masquerading as healthy alternatives, misleading the public intentionally and hiding dastardly chemicals, including sugars, in the list of ingredients. 

If you didn’t get a chance to read the blog on my website back in July, I exposed store-bought olive oils for the frauds they are. But olive oil isn’t the only thing pretending to be something it isn’t. Your stevia may be your undoing, as well.
