This is the next round of our “Keto Tune-Up” program. This program is designed to break through any plateaus you may be experiencing as well as restarting your Keto Journey if you’ve slipped a bit.
Low Carb/High Fat (LCHF) Meal with at least 2 serving of Vegetables
A former All Big 10 wrestler, at age 50, John found himself with prediabetes, high blood pressure, a frightening lipid profile and more than 50 lbs overweight.
“Clearly the “Eat Less, Exercise More” mantra along with the USDA’s food guidelines were not working for me, I was a heart attack waiting to happen.” An avid traveler and business lecturer, John found himself lecturing in Japan when the question was posed to him, Why are Americans so Fat? “I was completely stumped by the question, I really didn’t know but I resolved to find out exactly why so many Americans are overweight.”
What I found at first shocked me….I thought this can’t be true. Later it made me angry as I concluded that the food policy of the United States of America, has very little to do with your health or my health, instead it seems to be about the health of Multi-National Corporations!
“Specifically, I found that weight loss has much less to do with Calories In/ Calories Out and much more to do with your hormones, specifically your body’s largest hormone, Insulin. What I came to understand was that I like most people had become carbohydrate intolerant, my body just wasn’t processing carbohydrates well anymore and as a result eating carbohydrates was wreaking havoc on my health. I have found that most people understand the terms “Gluten Intolerant, or Lactose Intolerant the answer being don’t eat Gluten or Dairy, but Carbohydrate Intolerance is something new to them. Once I dramatically cut my carbohydrates and increased my fat intake, I became Keto Adapted. No longer burning glucose for energy, I instead began burning Ketones, and I felt AMAZING. The weight melted off (over 50 lbs) and I became Evangelical about spreading the good news….the answer to obesity, Type II Diabetes and many other metabolic related diseases was a Low Carb/High Fat Diet. The answer was and is (NK) Nutritional Ketosis!”
