12 Easy Healthy Food Swaps for ALL Diets – Healthy Keto Diet

Every person on the planet can benefit from examining their food choices and making adjustments that improve the quality of the food we eat. Patrick and I looked at an article that offered some interesting swaps that could be made to improve your health.

Better health is a goal that we should all aspire to have if we want to live a long and enjoyable life. Focusing on and working towards should be something that we actively try to achieve. Yet, when we speak to people, it becomes clear that improving health is often not on the agenda. Or at least not in an active way.

Ridiculous Reasons that Dietitians Believe You Shouldn’t Do Keto – Healthy Keto Diet

We repeatedly are presented with ridiculous reasons that dietitians believe that you shouldn’t do keto. With no evidence to back up their claims, with not understanding of what keto is, dietitians and nutritionists continue to talk about keto in a negative way.

I would like to state, for the record, that I am willing to review any article from a dietitian or nutritionist who actually takes the time to understands keto. That means that the person does research into what happens when you lower your carbohydrate intake to less than 20 grams per day. That the person takes the time to understand what carbohydrates do in the body.

Unfortunately, I doubt that a dietitian or nutritionist would actually fully investigate keto in an honest way and give the research that they used to come to their conclusions. Which would mean choosing quality research with quality research methods.

Ketosis: The Basics – Healthy Keto Diet

In order to understand what matters most for good health, we need to understand what is necessary to get into ketosis. In this video, we look at what matters most for ketosis.

There are so many “ways” to do Keto that it can be confusing. But why are there so many ways? One reason is that the way each person explains how to do Keto is based on their interpretation of what the doctors are trying to teach. The same way that if a doctor says stop eating sugar and someone interprets that as “no more junk food” but continues to eat potatoes.

Another reason for the different explanations of how to do keto is, the more difficult it seems, the more assistance people will need. Now we have created a market to make money. I’ve noticed the programs and websites with meal plans, etc. What is frustrating is that these website and programs can exist without all of the confusion around how to do keto. In truth, there are many people who benefit from a step by step approach to learning.

Keto is not complicated but there are many steps. The body is complicated and keto is focusing on a few principals about the body that allows people to regain control of their food intake and have a huge impact on their health.

As always, I’m encouraging you to do your research and prioritize quality medical recommendations and how the body works over the taste of food and what will be easy. Health and happiness take work. Make working on it part of your daily routine.

Careful, These AREN’T Low Carb Foods – Healthy Keto Diet

Occasionally, we accidentally eat food that have more carbohydrates than we thought. We also, sometimes eat too much of a low carb food, therefore eating more carbs than we thought.

I can say that I was surprised by some of the carbohydrate counts on a few of the foods that Patrick presented. This again reinforces how important it is to read labels and weigh your food. The only way that you can be certain that you have not eaten more carbs than you body can manage is to weigh them.

Ate Like Dr. Berg and This is What Happened – Healthy Keto Diet

What will I eat if I cut out bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta? The common question that is asked by those who learn about the ketogenic diet. Especially if Keto is being presented as a solution for metabolic issues. When I was faced with this question, I just ate like Dr. Berg given the amazing results I saw that he had in his own health and helping so many other people.

Making the decision to eat like Dr. Berg was not hard. You see, the pain in my hip was so extreme, I was desperate to find a real solution. I also prefer to use all natural solutions, so food seemed to be the obvious solution.

The fear of not being able to eat food and the fear of being hungry all the time, like all other diets, seems insurmountable to most people. So finding Dr. Berg’s videos explaining that I would be able to eat such a large amount of food was very comforting.

Another Attack on Coconut Oil, This is Why CBC is Wrong – Healthy Keto Diet

There a many reasons that have been discussed to promote the use of coconut oil. Health and weight loss benefits among some of the benefit of consuming coconut oil. Interestingly, there could be an argument that if you are consuming large amounts of sugar (more than 20 grams a day), your really shouldn’t consume a lot of any fat. We all know that high fat, high carb leads to excessive weight gain. But they do not even speak about sugar in this video.

Honestly, I do see where bringing sugar into the story would have probably upset whoever sponsored this video. There seems to be a strong underlying “saturated fat is bad” message. Which makes me think that they used coconut oil to take a shot at keto without actually saying it out loud. The cyclist who puts fat in his coffee, going to the coffee shop and ordering two coffees with coconut oil. Seems that they focused on those fatty coffees a bit too much.

Jillian Michaels and Intermittent Fasting: Why She’s Wrong – Healthy Keto Diet

I’m constantly baffled by the videos that I watch from Jillian Michaels. Her ability to mislead people about their health while in the same breath promoting her book is amazing. The question I have is, if you cannot even define intermittent fasting, why would I believe anything you’ve written about autophagy and apoptosis.

As I’ve often said, you do not need to agree with a way of life to appropriately define it. You can always sell products and services to people that are unnecessary because people like to have easy answers. That is not going to change because the truth about carbohydrate is being shared.

The Game Changers, Misleading on Purpose! – Healthy Keto Diet

The game changers was a very misleading movie and I think that was done on purpose. The majority of the movie was spent trying to convince us to set aside what we know about health for their fictional idea that a plant based diet will improve disorders we know are caused by excessive carbohydrates.

It is unfortunate that we allow ourselves to push agendas at the expense of people’s lives. I would have loved to have seen some proper research and evidence to help validate the claims made in the movie, but …

How Did I Gain So Much Weight? – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

I woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and was confused. I couldn’t believe that I was so much heavier that the photo on the bureau in front of me. When did that happen? And honestly, I really could answer. How did I gain so much weight and not even know about it?

But funny enough, this is so many people’s story. We silently gain weight, with negative repercussions to our health, dramatically decreasing our quality of life. And when we notice the weight gain and make an attempt to lose the weight, we have no real concrete direction on how to do it in a sustainable way.
