How easy is THAT 😉
I GOTTA SHARE people, I just HAVE to 😉
I’m SO energised this week~!! from not just eating REALLY well, but also from all the reading, networking, researching, creating recipe modifications, knowledge sharing, the new forum groups I’m a part of, and just the plain ole’ the “keto fascination” that many people are experiencing right now.
A new found “friend” told me, that the Ketogenics way of eating ( I HATE the word “diet” lol) BUT, it is now “trending, being the 6th most popular /researched/ “new” eating plan IN THE WORLD right now. I have a feeling that after more people watch “Cereal Killers”, and more people in social media keep sharing recipes, blogs, and these really informational/supportive forums keep popping up everywhere, that the “Ketogenics diet” will end up in the top 3. Eventually, when all the sheeple, decide to take a more proactive stance in their personal nutritional health and choices into their OWN hands we will be less of a minority. I look forward to those days.
I can’t say ENOUGH about an amazing young man, that I “met” online while on my continuing quest/obsession for more and more knowledge on this impressive eating plan ( or WOE = “Way of Eating”). Craig who started the website “Ruled Me” has an impressive story of his own.
The reason I mention he, and his website- I am on a woman’s forum about Ketogenic diet, and over 100 participants all started Craig’s 30 day plan on Monday, and all are there supporting one another, sharing the ups/downs/concerns/achievements to go strong and accomplish this goal until the end of 2014.
THAT is dedication! and also inspiring, and motivating!.. that is ONE HUNDRED WOMEN, from all over the world, who all “met” on a spin off of another forum, after a great gal just put it out there.. “Hey ladies, I’m starting the 30 day “Ruled Me” eating plan starting on Monday, to take us through the holidays, who’s in?. The charge is US$5.00, Craig calls it a “donation”. I GLADLY paid my US$5.00 because the information I received in the 5 .PDFs is on point! Craig breaks it down “Barney style” for those of us who have more of a challenge grasping the full science of things. PLUS, THE RECIPES, and meal plans..all the way down to a shopping list for your essentials.. YAH.. THAT in itself, makes it pretty much a “no brainer” with absolutely zero stress for all, your meals for the next 30 days are simply PLANNED out, and super easy to do..
I HIGHLY recommend, and FULLY support this “30 day WOE plan,..so much, that I WANT TO SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE.. not that I, personally have a huge following (as of yet), but it is something WORTH sharing.. and the best part?….the guy who wrote the plan?, CRAIG,- WOW.. what a GREAT guy! He will answer ANY question you have..and address concerns, uncertainty, or just if you want to say hi, he sincerely appreciates it ! He will help you out with ANYTHING Keto related. He is an incredible plethora of hands on knowledge, and a REAL, down to earth, super smart, sincere guy..
He VOLUNTEERED to simply be “on call” for our little group of 100 women whom have started their new nutritional journey during the most CHALLENGING time of the year (for most).. I’m just really impressed, and simply wanted to share. I have been making amazing delicious foods, from the “Ruled Me” website, and it goes to show that this man can COOK!, AND photograph..;-) It is inspiring, so much that I am on the quest to be able to modify most ANY food to “Keto Ize ” it 😉 Anyway take a look if you want some GREAT information.. Knowledge is power..share the knowledge!
The link for this awesome plan, is found below..Let me know how you fare ! 😉
What a great collage of culinary KETO-FABULOUSNESS!..
just a SAMPLING of the things I prepared for us in the past couple of days..
SCIENCE doesn’t lie, and nor does my camera..there is no photoshopping of ANY of these pictures, this is BEAUTIFUL..why? because these are pictures of REAL foods, Colourful foods, WHOLE foods, Nutritional foods, Organic Foods, Range/Grass Foods, BASIC foods, NON Processed, Modified Foods.. SIMPLE..
I have SO MUCH information spinning in my head ALL DAY long ! i have literally become OBSESSED with knowing more , and more… as I continue to delve into the science of this plan.. I am BLOWN away by HOW WRONG we have had it for most of our LIVES ! Especially in our Western cultures.
I am also DEEPLY APPALLED with the amount of Medical “professionals” who DON’T HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE, and they DISAGREE with people seeking better health for themselves!!..In this journey..I have learned ONE really important thing..IT IS TIME for US, TO EDUCATE OURSELVES, people!.. EVERYTHING we have been “taught” and “fed” for most of our lives..IS ALL LIES!! ..
FAT is not the killer..
CARBS and SUGAR are.
I know this video is only available for free one more day.. but it’s worth a watch.
60 minutes of this information, could literally change your life..or at least inspire you to..
it’s called “CEREAL KILLERS” here is the link –http://vimeo.com/94976653
It came out a bit after I started getting into Keto, BUT wow, it just was one more PRO in what I’m studying, and convinced me even more that I am on the right track about health and nutrition..
The awesome foods I get to prepare and eat are just the added benefit 😉
This culinary goddess, is FAST becoming the KetoGoddess…
….HAPPY THANKSGIVING AMERICA….. ❤
