Today's topic is a difficult, but important, one for a lot of us... myself included. But, as you know, not talking about the hard stuff gets us nowhere.

I used to go into the holiday season with the knowledge that I’d come out on the other side a little plumper and, most likely, sick and exhausted; completely worn out from the marathon that starts with the decorating of the house and ends with boxes in the garage ready for the attic until next October.
That kind of worn out used to have me in bed for weeks with whatever virus was going around in January.
That is until 2014. I was living the Keto Life, baby! I was 100% all-in by the time Halloween rolled around. When Christmas finally arrived, I had no worries: I was going to make it this time!Read More
Today, we're talking stress-eating and other coping mechanisms that don't always fit our best intentions.Read More
As many of you may know, along with living a ketogenic lifestyle, I practice intermittent fasting on a daily basis. My fasts range from 16-20 hours... most of the time falling somewhere close to the 18-hour mark.
The days I fast longer are usually planned and I prepare the day before by having loads of good fats: I eat things filled with coconut oil, grass-fed butter, avocado or macadamia nuts and seeds. And of course, there is always my MCT oil that I take daily.
Trying to do an extended fast without eating well the previous night can lead to acts of desperation. Trust me.Read More

The same struggles and strife have already been experienced by someone else, so take advantage of their wisdom and strategies to lessen your own learning curve.Read More
Often times, change is born from desperation, at least that's been the case for me. I didn't get into this lifestyle because things were great in my life.
Quite the opposite, in fact. I was in a deep, dark depression and felt out of control. I couldn't take one more day living that way.Read More
Many of us are walking around in some state of sleep-deprivation: Heavy eyelids, shuffling of the feet, grunts instead of words. Sometimes it’s even in the form of a slight nod-off while you’re driving into work. I’m sure you can relate.
Even though people know energy drinks aren’t good for them, I doubt the true extent of the dangers are widely known.Read More
After the memories have been made, Instagram pics posted and the pounds on the scale proving, yes, you did indeed have a great time on vacation... now what?
I personally know the struggle of trying to get back into the groove of eating keto after “vacation eating” and have found some tried and true methods that work for me. Just like I plan my vacation, I plan my return and reentry back into the real world.

I bet if I came over to your house and into your kitchen I’d find at least one bottle of olive oil. I also have no doubt that you absolutely believe that what’s in the bottle is 100% olive oil.
Yet, there’s a REALLY good chance that the olive oil you have right now, has up to 20% partially hydrogenated oils in it.Read More
My first summer after committing to the ketogenic lifestyle was filled with a lot of “I can’t eat that."
Social gatherings were less appealing and it would’ve been so easy to withdraw and retreat... or worse, slip back into old eating habits.
But, instead, I was fortunate enough to find a solution.Read More
