The Livin' La Vida Low Carb Show with Jimmy Moore

So excited to have had the opportunity to share a bit of my health and weight loss journey on the #1 low carb podcast in the world!

Jimmy Moore has been hosting the popular Livin' La Vida Low Carb podcast since 2005 and has literally interviewed every expert in the field.

I was thrilled when he invited me to be on his show after I sent him a video suggesting his mindset may have to do with some of the struggles he has recently been experiencing. 

We chat how having the right mindset is super important when it comes to making lifestyle changes.

We also discuss the other benefits of the keto lifestyle (besides weight loss) as well as how important it is to customize your keto as there isn't a one size fits all approach.

Here's a 1-minute preview:

You can catch the entire episode here.

If you have any questions about Keto, I invite you to schedule a complimentary coaching call.

Book Review: Lore of Nutrition

"Lore of Nutrition: Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs" by Tim Noakes and Marika Sboros is quite possibly the most important book about nutrition that has ever been written!

It should be required reading for all doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and anyone who has struggled with obesity or other chronic diseases (Cancer, Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, Alzthemiers, leaky gut, IBS, PCOS, Hashimoto's, etc...).

In a nutshell, this book tells the story of Tim Noakes, a physician, an A-1 rated scientist, and professor at the University of Cape Town who was put on trial (for his medical license) because of a tweet he shared.

A registered dietitian didn’t agree with the advice he shared, so she reported him to the local medical board (the HBCSA) in South Africa (that is where he lives).

Turns out the charges and subsequent trial wasn’t really about a tweet, but it was more a conspiracy designed to silence him because they (the dieticians, medical community,...

70 pounds in a year!

Today I want to recognize one of our members who is celebrating her 1 year keto anniversary. She has lost a life-changing 70 pounds in the last 365 days!

Jo-anne is a photographer friend on mine from Ontario, Canada. She wasn't able to start the 2017 New Years Challenge do to a scheduling conflict, but she signed up on February 1, 2017 and started our 100 day program on the 2nd.

The photo on the left was taken in December of 2016, about 2 months before she switched to a ketogenic diet.

The center photo was after 100 days and she was down 25 pounds! Not too shabby!

But as I tell every single person who signs up for one of my coaching programs... the real challenge starts on day 101.

What are you going to do after the so-called "diet" is over? 

If you go back to your old eating habits, the weight will undoubtedly return (perhaps you've experienced yo-yo dieting in the past?)

Of course at Ketology... we preach that Keto isn't a diet, but it is a long term...

Keto diet ranks dead last

US News and World Report recently released their list of the best diets for 2018 and at first, I was surprised that the "Keto diet" was ranked dead last considering how much better I feel after eating this way for almost 3 years now.

But then the more I thought about it... I guess I'm not really surprised. 

These rankings are based on the current dietary guidelines which the US adopted in 1977.

Since the low-fat movement was recommended by the US government, obesity and Type 2 diabetes rates have been steadily on the rise.

Here's how the ranked the Keto diet based on their criteria, then I share my response below in italics:

Best Diabetes Diet: 2.3 out of 5 stars.

They claim keto is minimally effective in preventing or controlling diabetes.

Several people who have taken my 100 Day Keto challenge have actually reversed their Type 2 diabetes diagnosis and have been able to come off of their medication (with their doctors blessing).

 

Easy to Follow Diet: 1.4 out of 5 stars.

My Friend Mark

 

I woke up this morning to find myself tagged in an illustration my friend Mark uploaded to Instagram. I absolutely love it so I made a video about my friend Mark and I hope you'll watch it.

This was the caption:

"Just a matter of years ago, I (and many others) watched in horror as Becker was swirling downhill fast into a chasm of pizza, french fries, diet Coke (oh, the irony) and carbs xMillion. It was NOT GOOD. Fast forward to today and like myself, he discovered ketosis and is now somehow 10 years younger with the energy of a hormonal 18 year old freak. He is now known as @ketology.co the keto coach! In this masterpiece, I capture both the physical and emotional transformation of my good friend of many years now, Becker."
