Keto Mom here!
The tip of the day is this "Do not eat if you're not hungry". When you're eating keto or low carb, most people are aware of their carbs. They're eating less carbs, moderate protein, eating more fats. Fats keep you fuller longer, that's why you can eat them. So you shouldn't be overeating.

All right! It's time for your two o'clock tasting and your keto tip! Yes! I make myself laugh. Happy whatever day it is, I don't even know. But it's a great day. It's a great day because I'm choosing for it to be a great day. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? We are going to be trying a new flavor. It's not new to me, but maybe new to you. So if you've been tuning in the last couple days, we've been doing a two o'clock tasting of a ketone packet. A product that I've been drinking for six years, and also a Keto tip that I'm going to give you, as I shake this baby up and tell you all about it. So where are you tuning in from, and I would love for you to share with me below something that you're thankful for.
I am thankful for my children and my husband, I'm thankful for homeschooling, we've made it through our first week of school successfully. It's so great.
So as you're tuning in, I'm shaking up my mom fuel, my husband calls it dad fuel. I legitimately put it in some water, and usually I use a shaker bottle, but I love to drink out of a straw. I'm going to give you a bonus tip, I didn't even plan this one. The bonus tip is, if you're struggling to get your water in, because you should be drinking about half your body weight in ounces of water, by the way, that was the tip yesterday. We talked about drinking different fluids and not drinking your calories or a whole bunch of sugar, but drinking half your body weight in ounces of water. Often I hear people say "I can't drink all my water"...
The tip is "You should get a cup with a straw".
It's so weird that I can drink all of this in one minute, if I really wanted to, with a straw. I feel like straws help you drink more water. So grab a cup with a straw, and it might help you drink more water. That was a bonus tip for you today.
I'm shaking up an oldie but a goodie, it's called Maui Punch. It is amazing! The flavor tastes kind of like fruit punch, it's new and improved, and I actually love it. I love the color! Do not be deceived, the coloring comes from beets. People ask "Where does the coloring from?" Beets! And beets are great for you. So anyways, it doesn't taste like a beet though, because that's disgusting... So, what are you thankful for? I need you to share below because "A heart of gratitude, will give you have a better day". If you tune in here every single day, we do a morning mindset and go through a book. Right now we're going through a vision book in the mornings, and I'm going to do history in a second. But why do I drink ketones? These ketones are incredible! It's not a magic pill but it is a tool in your tool belt. And if you tune into this page every single day, we'll give you lots of tools, tips and tricks on your Keto journey.
So my mom fuel is a tool, it puts you in Ketosis in under an hour. What does that mean? It doesn't mean your body's making Ketones that comes with the diet, but it gives you Ketones. So it helps you with your energy, your focus, your appetite control, and your better mood. It helps us sleep, with cravings, muscle preservation, there's so many benefits to it.
My favorite is the energy and the appetite control. A lot of people having incredible success with fat loss as well. I've been drinking it for six years and from there, I started with one meal at a time, one day at a time. Diving into this Keto Lifestyle, and my mom fuel got me there every single day. So if you want to learn more about this, post five in the comments, and you and I are going to chat.
There is actually a pretty incredible sale going on with a couple of flavors. You can go to ketomom.com and check it out. There's 25% off of Kiwi Lime, I actually shut that one up yesterday. We've got a couple proteins, it's called Protons, our keto protein over there. We might have a couple more flavors, there's a Citrus Tea and it tastes just like green tea. They're all incredible!
Just so you know, you can always send me a message. Ask me any questions that you have and I will answer you. I love the products and that's why I drink the products, because I do not need a nap ever in my life. For those of you who hit the three o'clock wall, whether you're sitting at the office or you're at home with your kids, I don't hit that wall and they tastes so good. So post five in the comments, if you want to chat about trials. Otherwise, go to ketomom.com, but I want to know if you're checking it out, because I want to walk you through it.
So here is your tip of the day... If you follow me or if you have followed me for a while, you will hear me say this often. But seriously until you get it up in your mind, and tell it to yourself every time you go to grab something to eat, you need to keep hearing it. The tip of the day is this "Do not eat if you're not hungry".
I had somebody messaged me earlier today, and she said "Can you look at my food, look at my macros. I'm trying to do the best that I can. Everything that I eat, I track and I just can't get all my fats in. So I get to the end of the day, and I'm trying to eat some more fat"... and I told her "Whoa! Are you hungry?". She said no, and I'm like "How do you feel?"... She said "Well, I feel good. I'm eating some good food. I feel incredible". And so I said "Listen, you don't have to eat if you're not hungry"... When people track their food, they try to fill in all of their macros.
Does anybody on here track their food, like on My Fitness Pal or a carb counter? Because if you're tracking, that's awesome! It helps you visibly understand what you're eating, which is great. I have not tracked in years but in the very beginning we did. So when you get to the end of the day, and you still have some protein left, or you didn't meet all your fat macros. You don't have to go to the kitchen and start shoving fat bombs in your mouth, just because you didn't fill in your macros.
You want to know what happens? This is where calories fall into place, so when you're eating keto or low carb, most people are aware of their carbs. They're eating less carbs, moderate protein, eating more fats. Fats keep you fuller longer, that's why you can eat them.
So you shouldn't be overeating. But when you fall into the trap of filling in those little circles, or the macros, you end up over eating good food. You end up over eating too many calories. And Yes! You can eat too much good food. You can eat too much bacon and butter. Oftentimes when people hit a plateau, they feel like the fat isn't coming off and they're not reaching their goals. I will say How much food are you eating? Are you eating if you're bored? Are you eating out of emotions? Are you eating because the clock says to eat? You can't do that. You truly have to feel like "Am I hungry or am I not?", "Am I bored or am I not?", "Am I eating because there's food in the employee lounge?", "Oh, it's okay. It's it's not a big deal. I just ate lunch, but in the employee lounge, there's some meat and crackers. I won't eat the crackers, but I'll eat the meat"...
Okay, then you go out to eat and you might not be hungry. But then you hang out with your friends and you're like "I really just want to munch on something. I'm not hungry, but I'm going to eat. I'll choose a Keto option, it's fine"...
And then you just keep eating the bacon in the mornings, and instead of a couple pieces, you have five or six pieces. Instead of one fat bomb to curve that craving, you have four. You see a little bar that's sitting somewhere and it says keto bar, you're not hungry but you really want to munch on something.
All of that adds up, all of that still goes into your body and you just overeat. So the tip today is "Do not eat if you're not hungry"...
You can track your food, don't eat to fill in your macros. And listen, Ketones are amazing and it helps you not overeat. So thank you for tuning in to my two o'clock tasting of my mom fuel and my keto tip for you today. I hope it was helpful! Continue to tune in every single day, and ask any questions that you have. I would love to help! Post five in the comments to chat with me more about your goals and what you're eating.
I'll give you a foods list and we'll chat about Ketones.
Otherwise, have a great day!
