Do I have to stay Keto Forever | Keto Mom
Keto Mom here!
If your goal is to always feel great, then you can't look at this as a diet but more of a lifestyle, of swapping out some of your favorite meals and and making them a low carb option. Or maybe on Saturdays you have one of your favorite treats, but just don't think about this as, I can never have something or always have to eat this way. You should look at it as a lifestyle, because if you think of it as a diet, then you're going to treat it like that. You're going to stop when you've reached your goal, and then you and I are going to be talking again in one year after you've decided to eat all of those Debbie snacks.

Full Episode Transcript
Hey everybody, first of all Welcome to the Keto Mom page. I'm late, if you watched me this morning, and you were like, "Hey, you were supposed to be on at 3:30". But in fairness, I did not say which time zone, so... it is not quite 3:30 on the Pacific Coast, it is well past 3:30 on my time. Anyways, it has been one of those days, I had to tell myself priorities are never in conflict. Have you ever heard that phrase before?
So as you're tuning in, I've got a question of the day. The question of the day is "Do I have to stay Keto forever?", "Do I have to drink Ketones forever?" So we're going to talk about a couple things. Because there's a lot of things that have happened in like the last hour and a half. I will not tell you if my husband almost dumped the tractor in the lake.
You could just assume maybe that's often something on my Instagram. I'm not allowed to show this one because it might have been pretty bad, but all as well. So there's that, and don't even say that I mentioned it. Second of all, we had ballet, and I am not one that checks emails. So we showed up to ballet, it was a dress rehearsal. Clearly Eliza is not in her clothes, I am supposed to be watching. I show up in sweatpants, mismatching socks looking like this, because it's a Tuesday. So I just feel like a frazzled mess, but it's okay, It's fine. And then I'm supposed to do a LIVE with you because I told you I would. But I will tell you this, Eliza came out, and she's like, "All the parents are watching".
This is where priorities are never in conflict in my head, I went to ballet to sit in the car to talk to you. Eliza came out and she's like, "Oh! you don't have to watch, it's okay". And I was like, "No, you are my priority". She is my priority, I will get to you, Keto Mom page later. So priorities are never in conflict, if you are a parent, a spouse, or just a human being, that little phrase I hope, will help you for the rest of your life. If you're trying to decide what you need to do, priorities are never in conflict, which means what is your priority in that moment, and you do it clearly. Watching my child do ballet, the only one not in her costume, and it's fine, because we are adaptable.
Now, the question of the day is this "Do I always have to eat Keto, If I've reached my goals or do I have to stay this way, when I get to where I want to go?". And I'm gonna pose the question back to you, if you knew the answer, what would you say?
I think most people look at this like a diet and they think I'm going to do it until I lose the sixty, or the hundred or the thirty pounds. And then when I when I'm done, I get there, then I feel great and I don't have to do it again, because I've reached my goal.
I truly think that people don't know how to look at something like this and think of it as a lifestyle. You don't have to do anything, so when you reach your goal, and you fit into your swimsuit, and you want to be done, that's up to you.
But I'm going to challenge you to think about this "Why did you get to where you are today?"... Was it eating a certain way, was it emotions, was eating out of habit? Whatever it is, if you've reached your goal, let's say you're going into the summer and you feel incredible, for you, you look the best you've ever looked in your life. Why would you want to go back to eating crap and eating the way that you did?... I want you to know something, you have to have a good relationship with food, it does not mean that you have to be perfect. Oftentimes people say, "Stephanie, do you ever cheat?"... Yes, I love chips, and I love pizza. Why don't you share it and I'll say if you private message me and asked me, if I were to have a cheat meal or a cheat day or if I ever slip up. I will personally have a one on one conversation with you and I'll go "I am not perfect at all, I do the best I can".
I know that food is fuel, I've worked on it for six years and I don't beat myself up. If I fall out of Ketosis, I get back in Ketosis because I drink Ketones every day.
But I want you to know something... I don't beat myself up and I'm not going to post me eating one of my favorite pizzas on Instagram because what happens? I've reached my goal, I'm not going after fat loss anymore, I want to get stronger. I want to stay where I'm at, I want to feel great. If I eat that pizza, I know I'm going to regret it.
When I do that, every time I eat something that is full of sugar, or it does not line up with how I normally eat, I pay for it.
But I will not blast a picture of me cheating, because you want to know what it does? I've had this before, I've been around friends, family or somebody who is on their journey to better and they just started. If I eat something, you want to know what it triggers them to do, "Oh, Stephanie did it, I can do it", "Oh, if she can do it, I can do it. Oh, it's fine", "If Stephanie can do it, I'll get back on track tomorrow"... It almost allows other people to cheat and it might not be your time to do that. Maybe you just started and you really need a week or two to get on track.
Everybody has their own timeframes, and everybody has their own things that they can do to get back on track and feel good about themselves. But if you see me cheat, do you think it would allow you to go "Oh, it's fine. She does it, I can do it". That's why I am not perfect at all, but I work and strive on being better. I work on eating the best I can for a majority of my meals.
Now, I did not go back to the way that I was eating six years ago because if I did, I would be living off of pizza, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, corndogs, Debbie snacks, and all of those things. And do you think that if I went back to eating that way, I would feel as good as I do today?... I'm comfortable in my skin, I've got energy to keep up with my kids and I feel good. But if I went backwards, even if I had reached my goals, do you think I would still be how I am today in one year if I went "I look good in the swimsuit, now I can eat whatever I want", No.
So if your goal is to always feel great, then you can't look at this as a diet but more of a lifestyle, of swapping out some of your favorite meals and and making them a low carb option. Or maybe on Saturdays you have one of your favorite treats, but just don't think about this as, I can never have something or always have to eat this way.
You should look at it as a lifestyle, because if you think of it as a diet, then you're going to treat it like that. You're going to stop when you've reached your goal, and then you and I are going to be talking again in one year after you've decided to eat all of those Debbie snacks.
Does that make sense? All right! Are you guys waiting for the winners? I am sweating, and we showed up at ballet without our costumes on today, we are adaptable. Okay! We've got five winners, this is what I did for the Costco winners. Everybody that guessed over $700 got their name in, here are the winners and you are winning some Mom fuel. I've been drinking this for six years, so for those of you who are like if "I fall out of ketosis, how do we get back into ketosis?"... I drink this every single day, I have for six years. I call it My mom fuel, it's Ketones. It puts you in Ketosis in under an hour. So I put it my shaker bottle, I drink it in under an hour. It tastes amazing, I feel incredible and nobody can tell me otherwise.
I've got a ton of research on it, but for those of you whose names got drawn, you are going to get a couple packets in the mail from me, for you to try to see what you think. And so this is what it is, if you want to know more about my Mom Fuel, post three in the comments, and I'll send you some videos to watch.
But legitimately if I were to have a cheat meal, like a piece of cake at a birthday party or let's say I went out on Friday and I had some pizza... The next day I drink Ketones and get back on track. What happens when somebody has a cheat day? I'll have to walk people through this... If you have a cheat day on Friday, then all of a sudden you go to a barbecue on Saturday and you're like, I already messed up on Friday, it's fine I'll start on Monday. Then you go to church on Sunday, you grab the doughnuts, fine, I'll start on Monday. Then you go to work on Monday and all of a sudden you forgot about the birthday party for your niece, and then you had a piece of cake and you're like it's not a big deal. The first of the month is around the corner, I'll start next month.
You have to get something to get you back on track, I have that and it's called mom fuel or Ketones. And so if I have a cheat, this is not a magic pill, but I drink it and I'm back in Ketosis. It feels incredible, the benefits are energy, focus, fat loss, better mood, better sleep, and I've never felt better.
So here are the winners! Are you ready? You guys, the exact total for my Costco Run, there was no change, the amount was $740.00 exactly. How often does that happen, technically it was $739.00 and I rounded it up, to give money to a children's hospital. So $740.00 that's a lot, but that's a lot of groceries. So we stacked up our freezer full of hamburgers and hotdogs and things to fry for people, when they come over to our home.
And so here are the winners, there are five of you, we've got Anita, Alicia, Tiffani, Julia, and Jamie, You win! If this is your name, I need you to send me your address, you are going to be getting some of my Mom Fuel to trial out, and see what you think.
I'd love to walk you through it. If you just want to know more about this, every Thursday, I hop on here and give you a very specific rundown of what it is, how to shake it up. Or just private message me, post three below and we can chat. But here are the winners, I need your address, I can send you some. Can you see it? I'll post it in the comments too. So congratulations to the winners, we like to do fun little contests on here. We'll do more, but I really wanted to hop on here just to help people have a mindset of, this is not a diet, it is a lifestyle.
And if you treat it like a lifestyle, you won't go backwards, and you will not come back here next year and have to start over again. Which I get messages almost every single day, about that exact same comment. I tried it, I did it, I lost it. I regained it, I tried it, I did it, I lost it, I regained it over and over again.
Because people want to go back to eating the junk, so I want you to think about this. This is why we started the book club, this is why, oftentimes I come on here and talk about the power of your words and the power of your mind.
Are you ready to make the decision, are you going to keep going? Because if you're not mentally ready, you don't have a strong enough "Why"... Remember how you feel, do you feel great right now, and Why would you want to go back to feeling like garbage?. So continue to tune into the page, thank you for tuning in, ask any questions that you have, below. We will be sending out some incredible mom fuel to those winners, and then for those who post three below I will get back to you later this evening. Then on Thursday, we do Thursday where we shake one of these babies up and we talk specifically about this and I'm going to send you some information on it.
So I hope you guys have an incredible day. Congratulations to the winners and we'll talk to everybody soon. Bye
