    This Keto Transformation of Mine Will INSPIRE YOU to Try Keto I Guarantee It!

    keto transformation

    If you are looking for a keto transformation to inspire you, I’ve got you covered. And I have no problem saying that and feeling arrogant AT ALL! I’ve waited too long and worked too hard for this. My keto transformation WILL inspire you and this blog post will share how my keto transformation can be just as much a keto transformation YOU can achieve– TRUST ME on that one. That’s why you’re here right- doing research on the keto diet to see if it really works- to find a REAL PERSON with a REAL KETO TRANSFORMATION right? I did the same thing. I was super skeptical and didn’t want to do keto but it’s changed my life and transformed my body and I’ll never go back. So let’s get started with me sharing my keto transformation story from start to “finish” or – to where I am today (32 inches down and 22 pounds lighter) on December 21, 2021! WOOT!

    Why I Decided to Go on the KETO Diet in the First Place!

    The truth is I did NOT want to go keto at all. It was my new functional medicine doctor who “prescribed” this approach for me and after a lot of back and forth where she explained to me and had me read a lot of articles/books and listen to a lot of podcasts to understand– that the keto diet combined with fasting is essentially the magic bullet solution for women like me with hormonal imbalance and metabolic damage (i.e. the inability to lose fat). I finally took her word for it and just went for it. You see- for the past 5-10 years really…I’d been stuck. I’d been this woman who was just NEVER ABLE TO GET ANYWHERE with my fitness. I was always at different phases of “overweight”. Ever since my hormones had started changing around age 40, it had been an uphill battle for me. I’d started getting things BETTER by getting on bio-identical hormones, but the weight situation was STUBBORN. Most people who knew me probably wouldn’t describe me as overweight. They wouldn’t call me chubby or fat or say “she could lose a few pounds”– most people thought I was fit. I had the blessing or curse of gaining fat in all the right places– I just got curvier. I never got a big gut or looked HUGE. But I felt it. And in the last 2-3 years it seemed to get increasingly HARDER. It seemed that the harder I tried to diet and exercise, the fluffier I felt. So- Last summer I threw my hands in the air and realized that I had give up trying to solve this issue on my own. I hired a trainer and started a Reverse Diet. That was hard to do, trust me. Then I fired my last functional medicine doctor and hired my current doctor who is a miracle worker. She told me I’d need to keep doing the reverse diet for another 6 months before I could start dieting again. And last year at this time, I was getting married and in the depths of SOME SERIOUS ESTROGEN DOMINANCE. Y’all, I was seriously eating humble pie when it came to my body and my health. I had to throw my hands in the air and SURRENDER. I was not in control but I had faith in my new doctor. I really did believe in her. THANK GOD I CHILLED OUT AND DID WHAT SHE SAID. 

    This photo above was taken the week of our wedding in November 2020- in Austin TX. This was at the height of my estrogen dominance. My boobs had gone UP a size from 36D which I’ve been my whole life to 38DD and they were sore AF. You can see how much I’d gained weight in my hips and thighs, I was just THICK and I felt it. I was horrified when I saw this photo but I am so glad I have it now. Because I can tell you without question, my weight gain/boobs situation was not due to me sitting around eating junk food and not working out. You’re looking at the photo of a woman who until a couple months before this – was working out 6 days a week every week and eating 1600 calories a day every day and PUSHING IT in every day. Could not lose weight. At some point your body like not only pushes back but FIGHTS YOU. 

    Embracing the Keto Way of Life

    By May 2021 my doctor told me I was eligible to diet again. That’s when keto came up and my resistance came up. But I finally went for it. Now at first, I was sloppy keto big time. What do I mean by that? Well, the truth is, I kind of lived on keto fat bombs (this one recipe I made that satisfied my sweet tooth big time) and spinach dip. Like THAT IS ALL I ATE for the first few weeks. Y’ALL– THAT IS DUMB. But-  can you lose some weight that way? Sure. You can also lose weight doing a lot of dumb s**t but– don’t do it. It’s not healthy or sustainable. My own husband was like “babe you can’t live on spinach dip”. So that’s when I started doing some instagram stalking– looking at other keto people and I wanted to find HEALTHY people and see what they ate and how they worked out and so on. I found a lot of cool fit healthy people and that’s when I discovered how many people were down with the exogenous ketones— and that’s when I got reconnected with Pruvit and ordered like 75 boxes of ketones (thank God I did they have changed my appetite and cravings FOREVER!!!) I followed a bunch of people, ordered some cookbooks and started shopping at Trader Joe’s for some keto staples– I got creative with my meals- I diversified. Pinterest is your savior here– all you gotta do is go to Pinterest and type whatever it is you want to make and add the word keto to it, there is a keto version of every recipe out there it’s crazy! With each week, this keto life became easier. Here’s how it went. I did that sloppy keto in May- wasn’t taking it seriously but started to see/feel leaner. Decided to do this for real, and do it right and measure/weigh myself when we got back from our vacation, starting June 1st – I placed my first ketones order and was ready to get serious and level up. After I started drinking the ketones 2x a day, I noticed a massive difference in my energy during the day (which is significant because I have had adrenal fatigue problems for years and just prior to taking ketones I was having to take a nap every day at 2pm for like an HOUR– not anymore) and my CRAVINGS and APPETITE are forever changed. I am simply not ruled by food anymore. I never snack! Seriously. It is LIFE CHANGING. I believe so strongly in these ketones — of course I became a distributor. So– see me to get you and your loved ones started-  your life will never be the same. I’m telling you. Also- I never had “the keto flu” or “keto breath” or constipation. None of that. But– Steve and I have always put fiber in our coffee and inulin so maybe the fact that we had already been doing that, prevented the constipation situation. I also focus on food diversity– making sure to eat salads and TRYING TO eat more green vegetables (but you gotta watch it, you’d be SURPRISED how many green veggies have carbs!!!) So- again, each week, eating this way — 50g of carbs or less, 50-60g of protein and the rest healthy fats (1600 calories) became SO EASY. I can still drink (I do ketones with hard alcohol or drink Sauvignon Blanc) and I eat amazing food and never feel like my life sucks simply because I’m not eating bread. I have steadily lost weight at about a pound a week– with a few weeks where I was at the same weight but losing inches. Then I added in these TRIM supplements I take now (yea, you’ll want to ask me about them and yea you’ll want to get on them and yea I’m a distributor too, you knew that was coming!) and I was surprised how that jump started the weight loss again- within the next week I was down 2 pounds and 3 inches. It’s legit. Here we are in December- I am walking around feeling more confident in clothes (and out of them) than I ever have in my entire adult life. I’m 2-3 pounds away from my first goal weight and all of this happened with me BARELY WORKING OUT (that was not the plan by the way– was dealing with migraines).

    Who Am I?

    keto before and after transformation

    Y’all- the photo above is one I shot very quickly, because I wanted to have one shot of me in workout clothes similarly posed, to show the difference in my body today vs that photo of me last year at the height of estrogen dominance and while I was in the weight loss waiting room. So forgive the informality of these photos but they make the point- and I am also LOL-ing at the instagram one below– my eyes are bugging out!! You know why– probably because I was in shock. Y’all I’m not lying. The past 5 years or so I have AVOIDED FULL LENGTH MIRRORS at all costs. I hated how I looked and didn’t want to face it. So when I was on this trip and had this full length mirror in my cottage and saw myself I about died! The difference is remarkable, my whole body shape is changing! This is what happens when your hormones get corrected — the areas where fat was deposited previously – release the fat. LADIES— I AM TELLING YOU. If you are like I was– struggling, and doing excessive cardio and dieting and killing yourself and wondering WHY CAN’T I LOSE WEIGHT— trust me that I have learned what the fix is. You gotta get your hormones addressed (and I have just the doctor for you, she takes telemedicine appointments!!) but you owe it to yourself to do this keto + fasting + ketones + supplementation thing I’m doing. I’m getting certified as a keto coach I’m so passionate about it– who is ready to take that first step and be in a keto challenge with me in January? Leave a comment if you want information because this can be your year. Look at me- I started off this year feeling UGGGGHHH and I’m ending this year feeling like a supermodel! you can SO DO THIS. What questions can I answer about the keto diet? Happy to help!

  • What Can I Eat On Keto? A Day In The Life of My Keto Diet.

    What I Typically Eat On the Keto Diet.

    Are you thinking about going on the keto diet but finding yourself wondering “What can I eat on the keto diet?”? I hear you! For the longest time I said I would NEVER GO KETO! I wondered the same thing — if you cut carbs and limit protein, “what can I eat on the keto diet anyway?”. Don’t worry, this blog post will share with you a day in the life of my new Keto Diet Experience. I’ll share what you can eat on the keto diet- and the foods I regularly make and eat and enjoy on the keto diet. If you want to know ‘what can I eat on the keto diet’- I have your answers ready.

    After you read this blog post, you’ll feel so much better about what you can eat on the keto diet because, it’s a LOT. Too many people don’t want to “go keto” because they think it’s too limiting and because like you they get hung up on “what can I eat on the keto diet”– but they don’t really look into it, and because they don’t understand how much great food they CAN have, they never start

    You’ll be ready to dive in and start going keto — if you want to lose pounds and inches like me that is-– after you read this blog post on what you can eat on the keto diet. I’ve lost 15 pounds and 18.25 inches in 11 weeks- want to join me? Let’s go. 

    A Typical Day For Me: What I Eat On the KETO Diet

    I’m going to go through my typical day first then share some TIPS for you on how to succeed. I am practicing intermittent fasting right now, it just works for me right now. I wake up every day around 5:30am (this is new) and I make a bottle of my Pruvit exogenous ketones (the ketones are one of my KEY success factors…not only do they taste damn delicious but – they way have boosted my energy and curbed my appetite is outrageous. I cannot recommend them enough for every person on the planet. You should be getting on the ketones train yesterday. PM me to get started) then go do my yoga. After yoga, I make my Pruvit Keto Koffee (this is also relatively new- formerly I was making my own coffee with coconut cream and almond milk but I am now 100% an addict to Keto Kreme. Cannot get enough! PM me to order and get on autoship. After my coffee (I only have one cup- used to do 2-3 cups of coffee), I get to work. A little later, I make my 1st Phorm Reds + Greens + L-Glutamine drink— been doing this for well over a year and it’s for my gut health. You can order by clicking through the link above or email me for info: both my hubby and I take them each morning and swear by it. Then a bit later in the morning I take L-Carnitine (recommended by my doctor for fat burning) I also get this from 1st Phorm so you can buy it here. Sometimes- I’ll have another ketones drink around the time of my workout (around 11am usually). If not, I eat lunch after my workout. 

    So what do I eat for lunch? I’ll share some regular lunches: 2 organic, grass fed beef hot dogs on a plate with 1 slice american cheese (divided), topped with mustard and a bit of ketchup (I eat with a fork) then I have some green beans. Another lunch is to make a burger with cheese (I buy organic grass fed burgers you can just heat in microwave or in pan), I eat the same way on a plate with ketchup/mustard/real mayo/onion/jalapeno and then on the side will do a green veggie. Another favorite is rotisserie chicken chopped up with real mayo- chicken salad on a lettuce– you can’t believe how FILLING this is!! Also- Trader Joe’s has this Buffalo Chicken Dip I am OBSESSED WITH- sometimes I eat this for a meal with plantain chips don’t judge me. If we have chicken tenders cooked up I’ll heat those on the stove and put them in the egg life wraps mentioned below (those are IDEAL to wrap up ANYTHING) and add guacamole, lettuce, tomato, cheese etc.– whatever Mexican condiments you want. Sometimes I might make tuna salad. If we make a meatloaf the night before, that might be my lunch the next day– with green beans. Trader Joe’s also has this pre-cooked Wild Alaskan Salmon that you can just heat up– OMG soo good. Trader Joe’s is a keto person’s best friend for reals. 

    If I eat out– it’s gonna be a cheeseburger on plate or some type of huge salad with some protein and real dressing– but I watch for things like croutons and hidden carbs and fruits. I also eat intuitively. You’ll notice when you go keto and EAT REAL FOODS (Not fake packaged foods and protein shakes/bars) you’ll get full faster and your appetite will change remarkably– of course the ketones are a huge part of that. 

    Dinner is easy. My husband is NOT keto but we find it easy to eat together. 

    keto food list for beginners

    Dinner is easy: my husband is NOT keto but we find it easy to cook meals we both love- that let me eat keto and we both enjoy the food. We make WINGS all the time in the air fryer— you’d never know they are gluten free with no breading. To die for. We dip them in Sweet Baby Ray’s (linked below) wing sauce and Ranch and OMG heaven. 

    We also make smashburgers on our new Kamado Joe Grill (I Just bought that as a gift for my man and he could not be more happy– we found out they have a rotisserie grill option — just ordered that too!!!) 

    We often order fish tacos from our favorite restaurant– they normally come wrapped in a flour tortilla of course but I ask for mine “deconstructed” on lettuce- I then wrap mine in the Egglife wraps and dip them in extra chipotle mayo…..divine!! 

    Everything is adaptable. 

    Also– when we get sushi– do I have rice? Yes. But I looked up how many carbs are in white rice. So I know that 1/4 cup white rice has about 11-15 carbs– I am for 1/4 cup. It’s very easy to hit 1/4 cup. But I don’t try to be 100% ZERO CARBS. Like if I go to a restaurant and order a double cheeseburger on a plate – it’ll likely come with fries, so I will have a few- and that’s it. Just like having SOME rice but not a ton. It works.

    We made this chicken stir-fry copy-cat recipe- and Steve had his with rice and I just skipped the rice and had mine in a lettuce wrap. 

    The truth is, I really REALLY only had a moderately “hard” time the first week going keto and that was simply adjusting to “oh I can’t have THAT ANYMORE!”- but you learn and truthfully I don’t feel like I’m denying myself. I don’t feel pissed off, like I’m angry that I can’t have this or that. I really ENJOY this transformation so much, nothing can really tempt me to stray. 

    keto diet menu

    My biggest tips for what not to do: don’t live on fake keto foods — eat real foods, look up keto recipes on Pinterest. Follow keto people on instagram– they give me sooo many ideas!! Make keto friends!! Seriously– buy some ketones from me — and get on autoship– they will change your life– they have changed mine. My husband takes them daily and he’s not even KETO!! I plan to be on this lifestyle forever– that doesn’t mean I’ll never have a piece of bread– but I’ll be able to manage it when I do. For now I am staying on this train until I hit my goal– at this point I’m just 12 pounds away from my initial goal weight of 138!!! Stay tuned for my progress and more updates on this keto journey– I’ve got lots to tell!! And be sure to let me know what questions YOU have on keto– I’m happy to help!!

If you’re anything like me, you have probably considered the KETO DIET but hesitated, because you wanted to see someone’s keto diet results first before YOU took the leap. As someone who has been on the keto diet for over 8 weeks, I am sharing with you my keto diet results 8 weeks in with tips to help YOU get started.

    You are going to learn all about my personal keto diet experience and my keto diet results over the past 8 weeks (spoiler alert: they’ve been TRANSFORMATIONAL!!)  This post will give you all the Keto Motivation you need trust me, plus keto tips and tricks, my keto guidelines for success, and keto mistakes to avoid. 

    After learning about my keto diet results, I’m certain you are going to be ready to dive in and go for it and join me on your own keto diet journey! 


    How and WHY I Got Started on the KETO DIET

    keto tips and tricks

    I know you are excited to hear about my ultimate KETO DIET results, but let’s start at the beginning. I am currently working with a new functional medicine doctor- Dr. Ruthie Harper in Austin TX who is exceptional. I was not at all pleased with the progress my last doctor was making with me (with regards to fat loss) and so in October 2020, I hired Dr. Harper. Prior to that, in June of 2020, I hired Alex Mazzurco of Level Ten Coaching to work with me as my online trainer- because — the bottom line was– I was getting NOWHERE in my fitness journey. I was paying all this money to balance my hormones. I was working out 6x a week and dieting in a caloric deficit and I could not lose an inch. In fact, I constantly felt that I was getting bigger, more THICK around the middle. I was miserable and uncomfortable in my body. I felt broken and EMBARRASSED all the time. 

    Alex put me in a REVERSE DIET. I wrote a post and did a podcast about that — you can listen read by CLICKING HERE. That reverse diet situation was the HARDEST THING I’ve done. Here I was, dying to lose weight and reach my goal and I had to 1) cut out cardio 2) scale back my working out 3) eat about 1000 more calories a day 4) accept that I was not going to lose weight for that time period. But thank you Alex because it was so good for me. It woke me up to how long I’d been never-ending dieting and overtraining. When I had my first consult with Dr. Harper, she affirmed that Alex was right and that it would be a while before we’d start to DIET. Gulp

    Well, I decided (this was end of last year 2020) that I’d simply take a BREAK. 

    I was about to marry the love of my life and I decided to lean into it- get married, take a break from a lot of the work things I was focused on (hello Ms. Spread Too Thin) and just enjoy the holidays.

    After the new year- and after some drama in Texas (remember us getting those snowstorms? well, our apartment that we were living in at the time got flooded totally due to a water main burst…..we ended up having to move within a week, and then my mother in law passed away a week later and shortly thereafter I resigned my job due to the single most toxic boss I’ve ever had in my entire career: lots of stress. LOTS of it…..just for background.), and after settling into our new home, my doctor told me in April I was finally ready to DIET. I’ve never been so excited. Crazy right? It had been almost a full year!

    I anxiously awaited her email with my macros. And then it came. I saw something about 60g of protein and 50g of carbs and I was like…….WAIT, WHAT?? I’m like “IS THIS KETO??” with a horrified look on my face.

     You see, I’ve been so insanely skeptical about keto for as long as I can remember. For the next few weeks my doc and I went back and forth about the macros and the why…..she had me read The Longevity Diet by Valter Longo which explains why women over age 40 do NOT need to have so much protein and why it can cause us to STORE FAT. (wake up call). She then sent me several podcasts to listen to talking about why extended fasting (not just intermittent fasting, this is anything past 24 hour fasting) combined with a ketosis state (which is what happens when you go past 24 hours fasting) essentially resets your fat cells (bear with me I am paraphrasing) so your body remembers how to release fat again. It’s like resetting your phone– suddenly everything works again. 
    I was convinced. Kind of. The truth is I was still hesitant, and it was watching my friend Lisa’s videos on YouTube about her experience going carnivore then keto (I had watched her keto diet results and seen her lose weight over the past 9 months and wow she looks AMAZING- she’s 50 and looks smoking– watching her videos it was like hearing myself talk!!! She was what pushed me over the edge to do it.) 

    The bottom line is— if you are reading this and are a female past the age of 35 and are experiencing major issues losing weight and you SUSPECT you have hormone/insulin/thyroid issues or you already know you have them— learn from my experience and my doctor and the data that’s out there that I’m referring to: The Keto Diet + Fasting (plus some extra tools I refer to below that can speed things along to a degree) is your BEST friend. Stop guessing. If I would have known years ago about this…..oh man, I would have embraced the keto diet with all I had in me. Consider this your wake up call. 

    keto results before and after 30 days

    Everything I did in my first 2 months on KETO DIET to get those amazing KETO DIET RESULTS

    Once I decided to go for it…..I was all in. My husband was like “Baby, I say you go for it and go BIG. Don’t just share part of your journey- share it all. Start weighing yourself and share your weight from day one: so many women follow you and are watching you!!“– he was so right. I committed to doing that from my Day One “Hard Core Start Date” of June 1, 2021. I had actually started the KETO DIET the month prior but a bit more “sloppy” and I was not weighing myself nor counting macros as strictly etc After Steve and I went for our staycation in Austin over Memorial Week/Weekend, I started hard-core on June 1st. I was ready for some major keto diet results and I was determined to make it happen. 

    I’m going to share with you everything I did and do– what my day looks like, what supplements I take, how I work out, what cookbooks I recommend (where I’m finding some great recipes in addition to Pinterest of course)– all the things I’m doing now and of course I’ll share my weight and measurements below too. My keto diet results have sooooo inspired me and motivated me, I’m becoming a certified KETO COACH so I can coach women and help them on their weight loss journey. Now that I know that THIS is the secret key for women aged 40+ with insulin/hormone issues who can’t lose weight, I want to be able to help as many women as possible. Having that official certification will make me feel better about being a coach and giving advice. 😉


    keto mistakes

    It’s really important to know what NOT to do to get great KETO DIET RESULTS. Let me share with you my best “what not to do” tips.

    • Don’t go out and buy a bunch of packaged KETO foods. In fact I’d recommend buying as few packaged KETO foods as possible in the beginning and challenge yourself to eat real organic foods.

    • Don’t think you can “just go KETO and eat all you want” — you have to count calories. YOU MUST or you could actually gain weight.

    • Don’t think you don’t need to exercise. 

    • Don’t go KETO just because you can eat cheeseburgers. If that’s your motivation, you are doing this for the wrong reason.

    • If you have not been eating “healthy” (eating a lot of fast food, eating a lot of bread, rice/pasta, cookies/candy, chips, sugar, alcohol etc. on a regular basis) prior to starting the KETO DIET..it’s a wise decision to plan a 60-90 day transition where you slowly wean off some of those unhealthy foods. 

    • Don’t estimate what you eat. Weigh your food. Measure your food. Track your food. 

    • Don’t avoid tracking your body: weight, measurements, photos etc.

    • Don’t avoid vitamins and supplements, they are hugely helpful (see below.)

    My Keto Diet Experience: A Typical Day in My KETO LIFE: What I Eat, How I Work Out Etc.

    keto motivation

    Here is how my days go in my new keto diet life. I’ll be honest. When I started I did not necessarily read any books I simply followed the macros my doctor gave me (50g carbs per day, no I do NOT do “net carbs”) and 60-70g protein per day — I do 1600 calories for the caloric deficit and thus I’m at 125g fat. I am currently starting to do a lot of reading about the science behind keto to learn more about the WHY IT WORKS so stay tuned, but for now I’m simply sharing what I’ve done and do.

    I wake up each morning and have a cup of coffee. When I began I was still having my regular coffee but I have now switched to the Pruvit Keto Kreme. I have noticed that a cup of this makes me considerably more “full” than a cup of my other coffee although they are both delicious. I am a Pruvit Promoter now because my husband and I use all the products and are obsessed so you can order from me– here is the link for the Keto Kreme product (obsessed I am). If you have any questions just fill out the contact me form. After I have a cup of coffee (I used to have 2 cups of coffee each morning now I have just one)- I do some work then I have my Greens + Reds + L-Glutamine combo. (I get mine from 1st Phorm, you can also order from me because I am a walking online store). Shortly after that I have my L-Carnitine, my doctor told me to take that every day. I take a powdered version from 1st Phorm that is delish (order online) and I’d much rather do that than a pill. Then mid-morning I pull out my first serving of exogenous ketones from Pruvit

    Funny thing about Pruvit. I first heard about Pruvit from my LAST functional medicine doctor probably 3-4 years ago. Back then they had 1 product and were coming out with 1 more; fruit punch. I was not impressed. Then a year and a half ago my dear friend Jenny Lynn asked me to get involved with the company from a business perspective, I politely turned her down (I’m like “I’m not keto dude!!”). Fast forward to when my doctor gives me my macros…I started researching keto people on instagram. Turns out most of the cool healthy keto kats on instagram were drinking ketones and it looked like Pruvit had really GROWN as a company. 

    I reconnected with Jenny and visited with the president of the company and signed on immediately as a promoter. I gotta tell you guys– their products– from the bone broth to the keto kreme for the fat fueled coffee to the bio-identical exogenous ketones with AMAZING FLAVORS TO DIE FOR–color me obsessed. I have typically 2 servings of the NAT exogenous ketones a day and so does my husband– and he’s not doing the KETO DIET. You do not have to be on the KETO DIET to benefit from exogenous ketones. These products for SURE have a been a huge contributor to my keto diet results no question.

    Once I added in 2 servings a day I noticed: 1) SIGNIFICANT decrease in appetite (which is huge for me a woman obsessed with food and eating) 2) tremendous increase in FOCUS during the work day 3) incredible increase in clean non-jittery ENERGY— whereas before I was experiencing an afternoon crash and often needed to take a 30-60 minute NAP– for real. 

    I’m clearly a believer so if you’d like to test some out– I honestly believe everyone I know should do so– we have a 10-day trial pack for $99— gives you 20 servings of our top NAT flavors half of them with caffeine and half decaf so you can try them out 2 a day like I do for 10 days. I firmly believe anyone that tries them out would experience the WOW factor and be like whoa I can do this!!! — LMK if you want info and to get started. 😉

    After I have my ketones, I then do my workout usually around 10am or 11am. I do cardio every other day and weights every other day. NO MORE OVERTRAINING. No more working out past one hour. NO more adding on extra workouts. I am back to using a Sweet Sweat Waist Trainer with the Sweet Sweat GOO and I love it. I wrote a blog post about that- CLICK HERE to read why I love this stuff. 

    After I do my workout, I have lunch. Lunch– if you know me, is where I need the most improvement. My problem is, I am very excited about my WORK and I work from home and I have a problem pulling myself away from work to MAKE LUNCH. So I often tend to snack vs eat a meal so I’m working on that. That said, here are some lunches I’ve had– old and new:

    • Organic Grass Fed Hot Dogs on a plate with mustard and a BIT of ketchup- and I usually add (measured) white American Cheese in the middle (this is about 400 calories) I’ll have this with a can of green beans. I LOVE canned green beans. Don’t judge.

    • Lettuce with chicken or tuna salad on top– full fat mayo– amazing how much more full you get faster with full fat mayo. I often can only eat half and then eat half later

    • Trader Joe’s Buffalo Chicken Dip– sometimes yes I eat this as a meal, I measure out several servings and have with plantain chips (gotta watch the carbs even on these) or with celery or half and half)

    • Eggs and Bacon

    • Egg Life Tortilla (made with egg whites they rock) with ground beef (grass fed etc.) guac, pico, lettuce, cheddar etc.

    • Salmon on top of lettuce with green beans or another green veggie

    • Plain burger on plate with ketchup mustard and green beans (see a pattern here)

    • If I go out I will get a double Whataburger with cheese and grilled jalapenos OMG so good

    Mid Afternoon I have another Pruvit exogenous ketones drink and more water. Sometimes I have some Julie’s Real Nut Butter (the thing is– I noticed that the highest carb things for me are 1) Plantain Chips and 2) Nut Butters so I very much watch it if I have had plantain chips earlier I try to avoid or really limit nut butters later that day– luckily I’m being very transparent if I have my exogenous ketones AM AND AFTERNOON I don’t deal with cravings. It’s just not an issue. But good to be aware) or BHU Foods KETO Cookie Dough. But I don’t usually snack anymore!

    For Dinner– Steve and I cook and we make great stuff- he’s not keto but we make air fryer wings to die for- he loves them and they are totally keto. We make chicken gyros and he eats them with NAAN I eat them with the Egg Life wraps. We order from Tiago’s Grille and I get my favorite fish tacos– only deconstructed on LETTUCE then I wrap it up in Egg Life Wraps! Winning! We get sushi and I’ll do a tuna tower and take out all but about 1/4 cup rice. We go out to eat on the weekend and I get a tomato/burrata salad or wedge salad and I have some of his steak……I never order an entree. I’m ok with him having bread in front of me — it doesn’t bother me because my keto diet results have honestly changed my life so much– nothing can tempt me right now. Seriously. 

    For alcohol — I stick with a dirty martini or dry white wine– but we also found out we can mix the Pruvit ketones with vodka or tequila or gin!! The flavors are amazing!!!!!!!!! I gotta thank my friend Michelle for that idea! When you go out to eat– it’s very easy for restaurants to make something without the bun or “deconstructed” or “keto friendly”– but also watch out for with ALCOHOL– a “skinny” drink is not necessarily “keto friendly”: I looked up a drink sweetened with agave nectar- that’s going to create an insulin response, no bueno. You won’t get keto diet results you want if you are not informed. So, let’s look at my results from day one to today. I hope this motivates YOU to get going and join me. After literally being STUCK in my weight loss journey, unable to lose weight for most of the past 4-5 years…..I’ve made more progress in the past 8 weeks than in the past decade it seems! How exciting to KNOW I’ll hit my GW before the holiday season is here!!!
