Get into Ketosis Faster with these 6 Steps

2021-01-15T18:16:51+00:00Health|

Ketosis is a metabolic state where you are burning fat for energy, instead of burning sugar. When this transition of energy source is made, the body begins producing something called ketones, and is said to be in a state of “ketosis”.  There are four levels of ketosis, starting with a light form of nutrition ketosis, moving into optimal ketosis, then therapeutic ketosis and finally highest level of ketosis which is generally achieved through longer 3+ day water fasting. All levels of ketosis are beneficial, but depending on what your health goals are, you may be trying to reach a specific level of ketosis. You can measure your ketones using a Keto Mojo. 6 Steps to Hacking Ketosis: But what

Fasting, Keto and COVID

2020-12-08T23:57:23+00:00Health|

A new study published in September 2020 found that there is a specific diet that can slow viral replication, making it especially effective for COVID-19 and all viruses for that matter. This is incredible news, because contrary to what mainstream media wants you to believe, you do have control over how vulnerable you are to viruses, by changing what you eat and when you eat it. The study found that  “a diet regimen of ketogenic breakfast along with supplementation with two doses of lauric acid-rich MCTs at breakfast and lunch times, followed by 8–12-h IF and a dinner rich with fruits and vegetables, could be a potential prophylactic strategy and adjuvant therapy to combat SARS-CoV-2 infections.” Intermittent metabolic switching

How to Use Feasting to Your Metabolic Advantage

2020-11-25T01:56:22+00:00Health|

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement and results of fasting that we forget about the need to feast and enjoy the nourishing benefits of food! So today I’m here to remind you that feasting is just as important to the fasting lifestyle as your fast days, and that food can be healing to your health, just like fasting can.  Feasting Tip #1: Use Feast-famine cycling The first thing that you must realize is that your body was designed for feast-famine cycles. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors were expert fasters, indulging in feasts when food was plentiful, then facing long periods of fasting in between. With this in mind, it makes sense that our bodies  are designed and adapted

Autophagy and Your Immune System

2020-11-20T22:00:48+00:00Health|

Hot off the press! A recent meta analysis published in October 2020 titled Intermittent fasting, a possible priming tool for host defense against SARS-CoV-2 infection, has made some impressive findings about the benefits of fasting, specifically autophagy fasting, in promoting health and preventing illness.   Directly from the study:  “[...]strengthening immunity along with maintaining a healthy living is the best way to survive this disease. As a healthy practice, calorie restriction in the form of intermittent fasting (IF) in several clinical settings has been reported to promote several health benefits, including priming of the immune response. This dietary restriction also activates autophagy, a cell surveillance system that boosts up immunity. With these prevailing significance in priming host defense, IF could

Ketosis versus Autophagy: What’s the difference?

2020-11-16T21:16:11+00:00Health|

This is a great question I got in one of my live Q&A sessions that I thought was worth further exploration. What is the difference between ketosis and autophagy? First, let’s start with ketosis. Ketosis is a state of healing that signals your body is burning fat for energy.  This is why most people come to fasting and the ketogenic diet, for weight loss. But there are so many other amazing health benefits to ketones. Ketones travel up to the brain and enhance neurological healing. Ketones increase GABA and calm the brain. Ketones also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.  How do you get into ketosis? Well, the answer to this question will vary for each person, depending

Raise Testosterone With Fasting

2020-11-12T21:50:50+00:00Fasting for Women, Fasting Techniques|

When I talk about the hormone testosterone, clients often think the topic only applies to men, however testosterone plays an equally important role in women. Common symptoms of low testosterone in women can look like depression and mood swings, low libido, muscle loss or an inability to put on muscle. How does testosterone get made?  This is a good question, because men and women make testosterone in different parts of the body. But the signaling system for both men and women starts in the brain. The brain, specifically the hypothalamus and pituitary gland sends a message down to the ovaries (if you’re a woman) and the testes (if you're a male) to tell those organs to produce testosterone.  However,

How to use fasting to support Progesterone 

2020-10-28T15:39:41+00:00Fasting for Women, Health|

Let’s talk progesterone….my favorite hormone, because progesterone has a calming effect on the body and is the hormone that keeps estrogen in check. Progesterone is mainly produced in a woman’s ovaries and it’s levels naturally fluctuate around a woman's menstrual cycle. So, How to use fasting to support Progesterone? As we approach midlife, progesterone begins to decline. So women over 40 or going through their menopause years will inevitably experience an up and down roller coaster and subsequent decline in progesterone as you go into postmenopausal years. If this might be you, I also recommend grabbing my new book, The Menopause Reset for tips and tricks on how to navigate menopause years with grace and ease.  If not due
