~KEEP CALM, AND KETO ON~
HAPPIEST, HEALTHY HOLIDAYS, TO YOU AND YOURS
Brian and I have been following this eating plan since October.
I have NOTHING but GREAT things to report, and say about this WOE. Since exploring, and applying the science of completely removing sugar, and refined carbs from our diets, and increasing our healthy fats, adapting our proteins for our individual body weights, we both have had incredibly, AMAZING results happening to the both of us, including excessive energy, most amazing menu planning, and vast food selections that are truly fit for royalty.
I, personally have experienced a 6.2K weight reduction, increasing my lean body mass and my total body fat percentage to 21%. Brian has increased his LBM by .5KG so far. The best part of this, is for the ones who DO need to lose weight,(FAT), your lean body mass, is INCREASED, and inches disappear in those areas where they need to 😉
That being said, we have decided to stick to this plan for a few more months, regardless, as we both feel so healthy, light, and fit. The science of this plan is complex, yet simple.. all it is ( in a nutshell) is switching carb intake for healthy fat intake, and increasing your proteins to match your LBM (Lean Body Mass). It makes TOTAL sense, and really follows the basics of a caveman/Paleo type plan, and by the way we feel, and have been having strength gains in the gym, along with our increased energy, plus the fun creative aspect of getting to plan meals based on the macros we need, it has become a lifestyle in only 8 short weeks.
I am posting this for the holidays, because all the foods in my picture, are FOODS WE GET TO EAT.. YUP.. that pizza, has a crust I made from CAULIFLOWER..and it stays right in my macros. Chocolate is 85% cocoa, SO good, the Avocado is my daily staple, as is Salmon, Chicken, Beef, Pork Cheeses, Eggs, and BACON.. (YUPP!) these are just a FEW of the choices we have! I haven’t even TOUCHED on desserts yet.
For my Christmas day,(it is only my husband, and I) I am missing my family in the States SO VERY MUCH, so I will celebrate in my own style this year…we will imbibe on a few “adult cocktails” (Bloody Mary’s), THEN- chow down on an amazingly perfect cooked (rare) prime rib roast, topped with bernaise’ sauce, with a side of avocado..just BECAUSE, THATS WHAT I WANT 😉 AND, the best part? all of this, will be EASILY within my macros, and is part of my CHOSEN WOE ( Way of Eating) ..
It’s NOT a “diet”, it’s a conscious, healthy choice in what we CHOOSE to fuel our bodies with. I prefer to fuel MY bad ass machine with FAT, I prefer burning FAT, and treating all my cells and organs with the energy they will best sustain from, protein, and healthy fats. My body produces all the glucose it needs. I want to live my next 50 years, in the best health of my life..
Just watch me 😉
