Full Episode Transcript:
Hey, everybody! Welcome back to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie and we're diving into a Keto tip for you. We're going to talk about electrolytes and we are talking about my favorite Mom Fuel (Berry Blue flavor). I'm also going to explain to you about the Keto Kreme. I'll be giving you some tips on where to find some great education and so much more. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? I hope you're having an incredible day. We are actually having an incredible day. I'm not sure how your day is going but I hope it's going great.
I have been cleaning a lot today because my house has been needing some TLC. Anybody else, or is it just me? We've pretty much had people in our home for the last three weeks. We have four daughters, we homeschool and we have four dogs. Our house is crazy, and so I told my girls, "it's practical life school today. You better get your sleeves rolled up because this house needs to feel loved". Let me tell you, it has gotten some love so it's been great...
Anyway, how was your day? I want to know for real... I'm going to talk about electrolytes in a second but I have a riddle for you. And if you haven't noticed, I've been making reels on Instagram. I may call myself old but I say I'm young, wild, and vivacious. If you realize the power of your words, you'll say happy words over yourself. I love to make posts and if you're looking for recipes, keto tips, or tricks, go to ketomomsecrets.com (all one word). We have a bazillion recipes there, or you can tune into the page every single day for more recipes. I also love to do live videos because it's simple.
But all of these amazing people on social media are doing these things called reels and TikToks, and I am late to the boat. Although I sometimes make them, I decided that if I'm going to make a reel or a TikTok, it's going to be funny. I'm going to make people laugh because people don't have enough joy in their life. So if you are on Instagram, look me up, it's ketomomsecrets and if you're not on Instagram you probably should go on there because they're quite funny. It's ketomomsecrets (all one word) and you should go to the reel section.
Let me tell you, I have been making some pretty funny reels so go watch them. I actually cracked myself up. My goal is to make you laugh and think, or to do both...
By the way, this is the book that we'll be going through in January, "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell. I actually do a book every single morning. We come and talk about the morning mindset and the power of working on your mindset. But for now, we're going to finish, "The 5-Second Rule" by Mel Robbins. If you did not know, then check out the morning live videos. And then by January, we're going to be going through "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth".
I have an extra one of these books, I'm going to give it away tomorrow. So if you press the share button, let me know. Just comment "I shared", and your name will go into a drawing tomorrow. Today, I have four winners for this book, "Rain or Shine" by Scott Alexander. And the winners are Julie Honeycutt, Amanda Heitman, Kim Hancock, and Denise Riggs. You won the Rain or Shine book, so I need your address.
For those of you who pressed the share button today, I have one more copy of "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth". I'm not going to give you my copy, but I'm going to give you the extra one. It's incredible and a must-read book. It's really great and we'll go through it in January. But here is the funny riddle for you,
"There are five frogs sitting on a log, four decide to jump, how many are left?". I'll give you a moment to think about it... And the answer is, there are still five frogs on the log.
Do you want to know why? Just because you decided, doesn't mean it's an action. Deciding is not the action step. We can take in things, we can learn them, we can watch people, we can read and you can decide. Like, "I'm going to decide tomorrow that I'm going to get up thirty minutes earlier so that I can get more things done in the morning"... But that's not the action, not really true. So he says, "Why? Because there is a difference between deciding and doing"... Here on the page, I will give you all the things that you need but you have to do it. You have to do the work...
This book (The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell) is super great, and we're going to be going through it by January. You can get it at any bookstore, you can go grab it... All right! Here's the tip of the day, as I'm shaking up my ketones or my Mom Fuel. I've been drinking it for six and a half years, and it's a tool in my tool belt. It puts you in ketosis in under an hour. I'm shaking one of my very favorite flavors, Berry Blue. It's a powder, you put it in some water, you shake it up, you drink it, and in under an hour, you're in ketosis.
It's incredible! It's the only naturally fermented ketone in the market. It matches what your body creates, it does not stop your body from making ketones but it will amplify what you're doing. When you drink this, you're going to feel incredible and you're going to have amazing energy. Which I joke and say that I haven't taken a nap in over five or six years. The appetite control is incredible, fat loss, focus, and all of those things. Then you also work on your food. If you want to know more, post "Five" in the comments and we will chat. I'm going to ask you what your goals are and what you're up to...
Alright! When you're in ketosis, whether your body's making ketones, you're drinking them, or both. Did you know that your body's actually flushing out electrolytes? How many of you have ever done keto or low carb, and maybe you've had cramps in your legs or just cramps? I've gotten this question so much this week that I have to answer it here. Most of you are telling me, "Oh, my goodness! My legs are cramping, my toes are cramping. I have a headache and I just feel off. I'm doing keto"... My first question would be, "How much water are you drinking?".
If you're not drinking enough water, you're going to be dehydrated. You're going to feel lightheaded. You're going to get cramps in your legs. Number two, Electrolytes! When your body's in ketosis, you're flushing out your electrolytes. You're flushing out sodium, magnesium, and potassium...
There are a couple of ways to get electrolytes. You can put some Himalayan salt in some water, we like to use real salt. You can't put table salt but you want some good salt. So Himalayan salt, Real salt, or you can get yourself an electrolyte. Our company also has electrolytes, called the MITO//PLEX. These are flavored, I put them in my water, it puts electrolytes in my system and it tastes good. You can also use pickle juice.
There are times when I'm traveling and it's my fault because I'm super busy. I'm not aware of the water that I'm drinking. And if I don't drink enough water or don't drink electrolytes, I will get cramps in the middle of the night. I'll get up and I'm usually in hotel rooms when we travel a lot. I'd be bawling because my legs are cramping so bad. I'd take a salt shaker, fill my hand with salt and lick the salt off my hand until my cramps are gone, and It works. At times we have pickle juice in a container, and I'd guzzle it down...
Just stay on top of it, and drink about half your body weight in ounces of water. That is the goal to hit. Are you going to always hit it? Probably not. Some might say, "I don't like to drink that much water" Well, suck it up buttercup! Drink your water, and your goal should be half your body weight in ounces of water.
If you get close to that, then that's awesome! You're probably doing better than you were in the past. And if you feel cramps or a slight headache, just grab some electrolytes. If you're doing the keto diet and drinking ketones, it will help you, I promise. In just thirty minutes, you would feel, "Yes, I clearly needed that", "My body is telling me I'm thirsty", "I need some sodium, magnesium, potassium, could you please help me"... Just have some awareness, and that is your tip for today. If you want to know more about my Mom Fuel, post "Five" in the comments. For those who won the book, Congratulations! Just so you know, the book is incredible. They're just so helpful for your mindset... I encourage you to tune in every morning so that you can have one little golden nugget to think about throughout your entire day.
The last thing I was going to share, sometime next year, I don't know exactly when but I hope it's at the beginning of the year. Our company's going to eventually do an event called the "Keto Academy". It's most likely going to be a virtual event, and it'll probably be in the evening. It's three nights and it's going to be a couple of hours where you can tune in and learn about ketones from science and doctors. It's going to be pretty incredible. I often get asked, where do I learn from and what is the best resource?. You can actually go to PubMed online and you just type in "Ketones"...
The Ketogenic Bible is also an incredible resource as well. This book is written by the same formulators of this product, the Keto NAT. They talk a lot about medical questions in here so if you have specific questions on how Keto affects lots of different things, it's all in here.
It's an incredible and informative book. Get it for yourself as a gift, or get it for somebody else. If you want to learn more and see some science about my product, you can download a free app called PRUVIT TV. It's a free app for everybody, and you can watch some incredible videos there... Anyway, if you think you might be interested in the event coming up, sometimes at the beginning of the year, called Keto Academy. I don't know how much the ticket will be, but it'll probably be pretty cheap. That way you can watch and learn some new information for three nights. It's just a couple of hours in the evenings. If you want to learn more about it, just comment "Event" and we'll come back when the event is available. I'll chat with you more about it... There are a lot of things that I could teach you, but just like the book said, "Five frogs are on a log. Four decided to jump. How many are left? Still five!". Just because you decided to do something, doesn't mean you did it or you're doing it.
You have to take the action. That action right now could be, "I need to order a book and get my mindset right". So go order the book. The action could be, "I actually skipped my workout for the last couple of weeks, so I need to go work out". Go lace up those shoes and do whatever you need to do. Go for a walk, run or go to the gym.
You might have some chocolate in your hands or a Christmas cookie right now, and you might need to count (5-4-3-2-1) put that cookie in the garbage, just do it! Your body doesn't need it. You are focused, you've got this right. Maybe you need a tool, maybe you need some Ketones. Just something to help you with your appetite, (5-4-3-2-1).
I forgot to say, we're doing a Twelve Days of Christmas, so watch my stories. It will be different fun things, whether it's about ketones, or today is about Keto Kreme. If you need cream for your coffee, we have different flavors. You can go to my stories and check it out, or you can go to Ketomom.com and get a crazy deal on the Keto Kreme. It doesn't have ketones in it, but it has MCT like coconut oil. It helps with oil and collagen, it helps with your skin, hair, and nails.
The MCT is great for you, it helps put your body into ketosis. It's not packed full of sugar as most creamers have. The peppermint is my favorite, there's a maple flavor, a creme brulee, and a sweet cream one. If you want more information on the Keto Kreme, post "Kreme" below. The offer is just for today, so if you watch the replay on a different day, you won't be able to get the deal... Alright, that's it, I hope you have a great afternoon. That's all I have for you. Congratulations to the winners! Press the share button to include your name for tomorrow's drawing. Otherwise, I'm here to help! Send me your questions, I'm always going to answer them. It doesn't matter what it is.
I hope you have an incredible day, and we'll talk to you very soon!
