Can you feel it? We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. Halloween is over and, just like that, the holiday ads spring up all over the place. Don’t worry, this won’t be a rant about the commercialization of Christmas.
I want you to be aware of your mindset once Halloween is here and gone. Do you give up eating healthy altogether? Do you say to yourself, “I’ll just start over in the New Year”?
Unfortunately, many people give up many of, their healthy habits during the holidays. This adds more stress to an already stressful situation. Your body is struggling to be healthy and in balance, but you’re not supporting it with healthy food, healthy sleep and exercise/activity.
Last time, I wrote about all the benefits of a ketogenic diet. If you missed it go here. If you’re currently on a ketogenic or low-carb diet, I encourage you to stick with it. If you’re not, and the holiday season is stressful for you, I encourage you to eat as healthy as you can.
Who is this for?
- You’re generally in good health and want to see if a ketogenic diet will help you optimize your nutrition and feel even better
- Those dealing with unstable blood sugar regulation or metabolic issues (type II diabetes for example)
- Those who have autoimmune issues.
- Those who suffer with inflammation issues. This is most of our North American society today.
- Those who want to lose body fat.
- Those who want to prevent neurological problems. Are you afraid of dementia and Alzheimers
Who is it not for!
- Children who are rapidly growing and developing. Youngsters need real food. They need food that will encourage their bodies to grow and nourish them, not the food that is on a typical kid’s menu. Real food, not food-like substances.
- People with disordered eating patterns. Being too structured in the eating program can send some people with eating disorders into a worse spiral. These folks need to work with a professional therapist who deals with these challenges on a regular basis.
- Pregnant or breast-feeding women who were not eating keto before becoming pregnant. Similar to children who are rapidly growing, pregnant and breast-feeding women are in a growth phase of life and will do best eating real food to support theirs and their baby’s bodies. Unless the mom is already eating a ketogenic diet and has been for a while, she is better off eating real, nourishing food and not worrying about being in ketosis.
- People struggling with adrenal fatigue or exhaustion. This one can go either way. Changing to a keto diet can be stressful on the body. But if you feel good eating low carb, you’ll get all the good that goes along with a keto diet…better moods, improved sleep, more energy. But if you feel like it will add more stress to your life and body, take care of your adrenal fatigue first.
- People looking for a quick fix. Changing behaviors around diet and lifestyle take time. Being able to get through the first few challenging days takes a bit of psychological energy. Many of you have been dealing with health and weight issues for a very long time. So a keto diet won’t change things overnight.
- People looking for a fix in a pill. Anyone who is in denial and not committed to a better lifestyle will not experience success with ANY diet change for the long haul.
If you feel like the Ketogenic diet is a way for you to become healthier and improve your life, then I’m looking for you. I’m looking for a committed group of only 10 people to join my Kick-Ass Keto Group on January 8, 2020.

I appreciate you and want to support you as much as you’ll let me on your health journey.
