Keto Starter Kit – Scam? – Healthy Keto Diet

14 months ago when I began the keto lifestyle, I did not have a keto starter kit. The question is, did I need one?

Big business does not care about our health, they care about the bottom line. It is really important to remember that when you are making purchasing decision related to food. There are food scientists whose job is solely to find the right combination of sugar and salt to add to a food to make it more palatable. They call this the bliss point, when food tastes so good that you cannot resist eating it.

I don’t know how you feel about someone manipulating the ingredients of food to essentially make it addictive but I’m outraged by this practice.

Ironically, most people would buy snacks anyway, just because they are used to snacking. There isn’t actually a need for this level of manipulation.

Metabolic Flexibility on a Keto Diet – Are Carbs Bad for You – Healthy Keto Diet

Metabolic flexibility is the ability to respond or adapt to conditional changes in metabolic demand. This relates to any adaption to climate, lighting, or fuel source. In the keto world, there is a lot of emphasis on metabolic flexibility but I believe, for the wrong reasons.

What I have noticed is that the average person is seeking to be metabolically flexible so that they can resume eating carb heavy foods. So, rather than adapting to what is necessary to survive, they would like to indulge in poor quality foods under the guise of metabolic flexibility.

Unfortunately, our body is a very sensitive machine. So, when you try to use the lowest quality fuel to run a sensitive machine, the results are very predictable. Damage to the machine. And despite the fact that we have seen this result over and over (it is the reason many people are on a ketogenic diet, to solve metabolic problems arising from consumption of poor quality food), the majority continue to focus on resuming poor eating.

When I began my research into Keto, I found many scary facts that I now know lies or keto diet myths. These myths definitely made me think twice about my decision to do keto and as a matter of fact, are likely why it took me more than two months to actually start. You see, when it comes to my health, or any other major project that I begin, I believe in doing the research.

And research is what I did. Which is why I’m making this video. With all the keto diet noise out there, we need to make the effort to present more videos that promote the truth, to counter the videos that promote fear.

Does Keto Suppress Appetite – Healthy Keto Diet

I feel like today’s video is a bit of a rant. I don’t know why people believe that the keto diet suppresses appetite. But this is a statement that I’ve heard on several videos and read in many articles.

Does keto suppress appetite any more than SAD suppresses appetite or the cabbage diet suppressed appetite? Why all the confusion? Is it a grammar issues? Or, is it a lack of respect for the body and understanding of what happens when you live a ketogenic lifestyle.

In order to be healthy, we need to feed our body with nutrient dense, high quality food. I’m not saying you need to bankrupt yourself purchasing groceries. What I’m saying is if there is any area of your life where you should be investing, it should be in the fuel that will build your body.
