Keto Diet: What’s the Big Deal?
I had been noticing that my low-carb approach to healthy weight was leaving me tired, with low mood, wonky hormones and a barely-functioning brain. Not a good combination for an emotional-wellness professional managing a staff of 27!
Enter the new idea of healthy fats. Really? The very thing I’d been trained in my teens and early 20’s to avoid?
Well, what do you know? Fat was exactly what this body and brain needed. But I had to unlearn all kinds of habits associated with food. Typically I had eaten grains as a main staple. That had to change. When grains exited stage left, my digestive troubles settled right down. I didn’t feel like I was starving an hour after breakfast and I started to incorporate healthy protein that increased muscle and resulted in me feeling full and satisfied.
So that’s part of my story. Leanne Vogel experienced a similar life-altering ah-ha moment when she incorporated good fats into her diet diligently and persistently. So much so, that she began to research and write about the Ketogenic Diet. She produced a website with awesome products to help the uninitiated learn how to change the way they eat. This changing of food choices resulted in enhanced wellness for those she influenced. Keto-eating produced balanced hormones, weight loss, mood balancing and muscle enhancing outcomes.
Leanne has written numerous articles and recipes that are fun, flavourful and easy to follow. Her Balanced Keto Weekly Meal Plan is fantastically user-friendly and reasonable. Why do I say reasonable? Because big changes like reducing carbs and increasing good fats cannot be overwhelming or daunting–if they are, change is unlikely to occur. Diet alterations have to be reasonable and doable for the average person–like me! So, thanks Leanne for thinking of us regular folks who are in need of solid plans that get us from total new-bes, to capable keto-eaters.
Life is busy and hectic. Having a practical go-to guide that helps you develop healthy habits that result in weight loss, digestive rest, balanced hormones and increased energy can’t be overemphasized. The Balanced Keto Weekly Meal Plan is exactly that–balanced, Keto and easy to use as a planning strategy for meals.
