Food is Fuel, Do Activities for Fun – Healthy Keto Diet

When we understand that food is fuel, we tent to make better food choices. We will go for fruit instead of cookies. We choose rice instead of fries. But what if you learn that there is not much difference between choosing whole grain cereal over the pop-tart? How would you improve your health?

Interestingly, the issue that we have is that eating high carb meals has negative impacts on our overall health because our body has a threshold for how much carbohydrate it can safely allow to float around in our blood. For that reason, any excess carbohydrate is stored away as fat, as quickly as possible.

This helps us to understand carbohydrates in a new way. The same way that most people can have one alcoholic beverage and be perfectly fine, if you have fewer than 20 grams of carbs in a day, you will likely be fine. But when we go over our carb limit, our body reacts to the toxin the same way that it reacts to alcohol. It neutralizes it by swiftly removing it from our blood.

Is Keto the Worst Diets Ever? – Healthy Keto Diet

Could keto be one of the worst diets ever? Who decides? What criteria do they use? So many questions. I honestly almost fell off my chair when it was even suggested that keto could be the worst diet of 2019.

2019 has been an amazing year. I found the ketogenic diet in February 2018 and began my major life changing ketogenic diet in April the same year. The keto diet saved my hip, regulated my weight, and apparently solved my metabolic syndrome. Well, all of that benefit must have been in my imagination because I learned today that keto was rated number one on the worst diets ever list for 2019.

Can You Be Healthy and Overweight? – Healthy Keto Diet

Can you be healthy and overweight? How does fat affect the body? Is obesity a disease? These are areas of serious concern for many people because we are all either struggling to maintain our weight or have loved ones who are struggling.

Why is it that doctors are not spending more time with their clients trying to educate them about eating a proper diet and maintaining a healthy weight? Most doctors doctors have the attitude that most sick people will not adhere to a strict diet and therefore trying to impose one is useless.

Calorie Deficit vs Ketosis, Our Body Prefers Ketosis – Healthy Keto Diet

Should you focus on being in a calorie deficit vs ketosis state. The issue is, when we try to decrease our caloric intake, we often reduce fat intake because fat has more calories than carbohydrates. This results in people eating large amounts of carbohydrates (usually, unknowingly). Most people do not classify rice as sugar. So when a doctor tells them to keep their sugar intake low to help stave off diabetes, they stop eating candy bars but continue to eat rice, potatoes, pasta, carrots, and all the other “healthy” carbs.

This is problematic because our body can only manage to have about 5 grams of carbs circulating in our blood at any moment in time. So to our body, sugar from candy or rice has the same negative effect on our blood sugar levels.

When we learn that these are the same, then we can make better decisions about how we will manage our health and weight. At that point, lowering the fat intake to minimize calories doesn’t make as much sense. In reality, we need to severely cut the carbohydrate intake to help our body better manage our blood sugar. By doing this, we solve multiple problems. Our inflammation issues decrease, our insulin becomes regulated, the damage that sugar does in the body is dramatically decreased, and our weight is normalized (to name a few benefits).

Gather as much information as you can about eating a healthy ketogenic lifestyle and focus your attention on what it means to be in ketosis. When you fully understand these concepts, your ability to maintain good health will be much easier.

Health and happiness take work. Make working on it part of your daily routine.

Keto Diet: What to Expect – Healthy Keto Diet

So many people fail when they first try the keto diet. What to expect when you begin? The problem is when most people begin a keto diet, they have no idea what to eat, how their body will react, how long it will take to get into ketosis, or any of the very basic details of the diet. It is so simple, eat less than 20 grams of carbs per day, and yet so complicated, because our bodies are actually quite complex.

Taking the time to learn how food affects our metabolism ensures that when we do a keto diet, what to eat is a mystery to us. Having a healthy keto diet plan means that you will become fully fat adapted and begin to reap the benefits of eating a healthy diet on a regular basis. The only way that you will solve your metabolic and weight issues is to make keto a lifestyle rather than a diet.

Why Jillian Michaels Lizzo Comments are Concerning – Health Keto Diet

People seemed up in arms about Jillian Michaels stating that Lizzo is in an unhealthy state due to her excess weight. Actually that is not why I find Jillian Michaels Lizzo comments problematic. Jillian Michaels continues to preach move less eat more and does whatever she can to put herself in our path so that she can convince those who are vulnerable to her fear tactics that she has the answer.

I am fairly certain that all the wellness warriors see through her misinformation but it is everyone else that we are trying to help. I worry that they will believe what Jillian is saying about weight loss and get on a path to poor health, disappointment, and eventually, increased weight. Eat less, move more has contributed to so much yo-yo dieting and frustration because on paper it seems to make sense. We need to understand that our bodies function a certain way and hormones do what they will do, whether our logic likes it or not.

Healthy Mindset for Weight Loss – Healthy Keto Diet

Do you have a healthy mindset for weight loss? How would you know if you’ve created a healthy diet plan for weight loss at home? I know that when I was eating the standard american diet, I was with healthy weight loss because I was not aware that there was actually a specific mindset for weight loss.

When we have a mindset for weight loss, we work harder to achieve our goals. We do the research to understand our body and we apply those findings to our lives. How often do I talk to people who seem to know the details of Keto but then they are not acting on that information. They go out to eat in restaurants but do not make special requests to create the meal that would support their goals. They allow their friends ideas about how they eat change the foods they choose during social occasions. Each of these mistakes affect their progress because it slows down their weight loss and disrupts the connection between their stated food mindset and their actions.

Stop Calling Keto a Sugar Free Diet – Healthy Keto Diet

Nutritionists really need to stop calling keto a sugar free diet. On a healthy keto diet you eat low carbohydrate vegetables (yes, vegetables = sugar) on a daily basis. That is where you spend your 20 grams of carbs a day. So why do dietitians keep saying that when you do a ketogenic diet you won’t get enough fiber or that you won’t get your micro nutrients?

Sugar is a big business. And not just the white grainy substance that we put in our coffee, sugar is in every processed food that we buy, all vegetables, and grains. So the crops that the government invests in and labels as part of a healthy diet is actually heavy in sugar content. How could the government then endorse a sugar free low carb diet. That might destroy profit margins. Now that sounds very cynical. Would our government really care more about profit than our health?

The Truth about Belly Fat, What Jillian Didn’t Say – Healthy Keto Diet

Jillian Michaels doesn’t believe that there is anything specific that we can do to minimize belly fat besides eat less and move more. Now, after years in the fitness field, Ms. Michaels is more than likely aware that this advice is not supported by the current research. But the research does not support the eat less, move more framework that her fitness business is constructed on.  

Jillian Michaels expresses clear disdain for anyone who does not already know that belly fat is a result of overeating and that the clear answer is to stop overeating. Her video is short and to the point, the point being that we are wasting her time asking about belly fat. The question becomes, is Jillian Michaels really the place that you want to get your health information?

Is Keto Healthy for Children? – Healthy Keto Diet

Why isn’t anyone asking if sugar is healthy for children to eat? Oh, that’s because we already know the answer. Yet, how many children begin their day with a bowl of cereal, stack of pancakes, or fruit? How many children have ice cream and cookies on a daily basis? But when a parent decides to educate their child on how sugar affects them and perhaps direct them towards low carb or keto, all of a sudden, they are the one being accused of putting the child’s health at risk.

It seems to me that the health care system is putting our children at risk by functioning on a model that allows us to get sick and then treats with medication. What happened to the idea that food is medicine? Why aren’t we teaching our children to eat a proper diet so that they will have a healthy body?
