How to Stop Binge Eating, How Keto Helps – Healthy Keto Diet

We put so much pressure on being thin, that many people have to find ways to stop binge eating! Why, because we restrict our eating so much that when we do eat, we over do it. And when we do binge eat, we typically do it in hiding, meaning that there is also an emotional component (shame) involved.

Something that has been spoken about repeatedly is that keto can help with the physical cravings of food addiction but it does not solve everything. You will still need to do some work to solve the emotional/binge eating component.

How to Avoid Getting Fat on Vacation! – Healthy Keto Diet

To be successful on your keto vacation with the kids, have a plan. Seems so simple and yet when I talk to people who overate on their vacation, mostly it was because they just took it day by day.

The issue with taking it day by day is that, you are not on your regular schedule and have so much more time to be eating and indulging. This is especially important if you are a “foodie”. The fact that you see eating as a hobbie will mean that you actually will allow yourself to eat, even if not hungry.

Food for Fuel, Activities for Entertainment – Healthy Keto Diet

Food for fuel, activities for fun, sounds simple enough and yet we sometimes get it wrong. When we allow ourselves to use food in a way that it is not intended, we get into trouble. We can have excessive weight gain but even worse, we can have metabolic issues that lead to serious illness.

I want everyone to consider that there are many positive things that we can do for our entertainment that will have amazing results on our physical health (and mental health). Exploring the opportunities may seem intimidating. Perhaps we are afraid to get hurt. Perhaps we are afraid to try the new activity alone. Perhaps we are not certain what activity we will find entertaining.

What is important is realizing that the above reasons can be seen as road blocks or as challenges. Ultimately, I encourage all of you to see them as challenges. Get out there and be entertained by something other than food. Your body will really appreciate that.

Doing Keto Right – Fats, Snacks, Maintenance – Healthy Keto Diet

If you are going to do Keto, do Keto right. But what does that actually mean? So many different sources give such different advice. How do you know what is good advice and what is someone trying to push an aganda?

What is ironic is that Keto has been around for so many years and is not something that you can sell (although everyone wants to find a way to sell it). Keto is not a diet plan, it is a way of life. When you understand that piece of information, everything else become obvious.

The truth is, doing keto correctly involves understanding what you are trying to accomplish. When you get that, everything else is simple.

So many people are desperate to lose weight and will try almost anything to be thin. How does the information that we learn on the Biggest Loser helping us to achieve our goals?

Too Much Fat on Keto? – Healthy Keto Diet

Too much fat on keto … yes, it is possible. Unfortunately I have noticed through videos that I’ve watched and questions that I’ve received that many people are overeating fat when they do a ketogenic lifestyle. This leads to slow weight loss progress and frustration that can cause people to quit the lifestyle.

Eating extra fat does not cause us to be in ketosis. Eating extra fat is beneficial in a few select situations. When you are suffering from Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, or other metabolic conditions that benefit from ketone metabolism, eating extra fat helpful. Extra fat is also helpful when you are in maintenance, as it allows you to eat enough energy to stop weight loss. But it is not putting you in ketosis.
