Let's Start Getting Healthy! Tips To Start Your Keto Journey.

	Let's look at the amount of sugar that you're drinking because that's an easy fix. Drink more water, and have a shaker bottle with you at all times. Drink about half your body weight in ounces of water. And if you're drinking a whole bunch of sugar and junk, that eventually needs to be cut out.

Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie. We're making lunch or prepping dinner and I want to give you some tips to help you on your keto low-carb health journey. A lot of people have been asking about how to get started, how to lose a hundred pounds, or whether they want to feel healthier.

I'll give you a couple of tips to help you start. I'm about to put chili in our crock pot so that when we go to CrossFit and come home, there's food for the kids, and everybody's happy, with no hungry tummies.

One of the biggest tips I tell people as they are starting to get healthier, trying to get back on the health wagon, and getting focused or refocused, is to seriously not overcomplicate things.


I don't overthink it! I just brown 3 pounds of hamburger, season it with garlic, use Rayos Marinara sauce, dump it into a crock pot, add any vegetables that I want, season it with some chili powder till it's the taste that I want, and I'm done.

There are things that obviously require more ingredients for measuring things out. But when your goal is to get healthy, feel better, or get some of the weight off, it's going to require some discipline, self-control, and awareness to not overcomplicate things.

Two weekends ago, we were at an event where we listened to four different doctors who are considered keto doctors and scientists, who are really big in the Keto space.

All of them said that the ketogenic diet is not sustainable for a majority of people, and they won't stick with it long term.

But, there are things you can do to help you create a lifestyle and that will help you feel and look better. Which is simply doing something over and over again, for not just two weeks or a month, but for an entire year.

Create a lifestyle that is not only for you but for your family too.

You want to lose 50 pounds, I get it. But it's going to require "Self-control". Isn't it interesting how you can hear something over and over again? And until you're ready to hear and receive it, you almost act as if you've never heard it. So this phrase was said in one of our team calls this morning, "You don't eat the fruit of the seeds you planted today. You don't get to eat that fruit right away".

And my husband turned around to me and said, "That's so good". And I said, "Where have you been? That concept about the seed, fruit, and harvest has been talked about all year by so many people that we listened to"...

It really gave me the understanding that you will need to hear something over and over again until you're ready to either do something about it or be ready to receive it. It takes somebody 17 times to hear something before they actually are ready to do something about it.

All right, so going back... Don't overcomplicate this! If you physically don't have time to plan a whole bunch of keto or low-carb meals, you can make better choices. Every single day, you have a choice to go through the drive-thru or to pack your lunch. You can also choose the best meal in the position that you're at.

It can be as simple as taking the buns off the burgers, and croutons off the salad, grabbing a lettuce wrap, protein, veggie, and a salad.

Even though you may have eaten that same meal yesterday, it's a better option and you will have self-discipline. You know what you want, you want to go after your S.M.A.R.T. goals.

It's okay that you had eggs and lettuce wrap yesterday. So if you didn't plan anything else, your body might crave the sugar. But you've got self-discipline and your S.M.A.R.T. goals so you're going to eat the same thing yesterday because you didn't plan something else today. You have to be okay with simple meals and one step at a time, one meal at a time.

This isn't a two-week journey. This is month after month until you can do this for a year. You will look and feel differently next year if you're committed to the simplicity of the process. You have to understand that this doesn't have to be super complicated, and most people don't stick to keto.

The ones that tell me they're doing a keto diet and are tracking everything. I rarely talk to somebody who's actually done it long-term, or sustained it. What I usually hear is that they did it, but then they gained all the weight back. So let's set proper expectations...

  • I'm going to do low-carb.

  • I'm going to be carb-conscious.

  • I'm going to focus on intermittent fasting.
