Keto Mom here!

	You really can't say you've hit a stall, or a plateau until it's been six weeks. Your body's adjusting to things, so make sure you're paying attention to inches lost and clothes fitting differently. Different mile markers, and not just the scale because the scale will go up and down. So just be aware that there are different ways to measure.

Full Episode Transcript

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to dive into our two o'clock tasting and a Keto tip. I'm going to try a brand new flavor, it's a brand new packet. Something that you've never seen before for my Mom Fuel, and then I'm going to share with you what might cause a stall. "Why have I hit a stall or a plateau?", "Why am I not seeing the scale move?"... I'm going to give you just some examples that I know of. So as you're learning, you can share some examples of things that you know, because collaboration is currency. It's better to learn from a lot of people, and not just me. There's a lot of people that know more than I do.

Welcome to another Tasting and Keto Tip!
And so as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? I have my handy dandy fly gun, we keep our doors open because it's so nice out, so the dogs can go in and out of the deck. But the flies like to come in too, so I have to get them. Which by the way, if you do not have a fly salt gun, you should get this for people for Christmas.

These are amazing. Hopefully, Facebook doesn't get mad at me. It's a salt gun, with an orange tip. I promise you, this will be the best gift you get anybody, especially if they live on a farm... All right! I want to know, what did you have for lunch? The reason I ask is that it gives people ideas. So tell us what you had, maybe it's a favorite recipe or something super simple like a lettuce wrap. I think my daughter's made low-carb tortillas, super simple. What did you have for lunch share below and I am going to talk to you about my Mom Fuel, which I'm really excited to share. I actually haven't tried it yet, are you ready?

So the product that I drink is called Ketones, and I've been drinking it for six and a half years. Normally you see me hold up a packet that says NAT on it. It is naturally fermented Ketones, it's the only naturally fermented Ketone in the market. We have something that's a charged version, like an amped-up version, so it's got more Ketones. It's got more caffeine, and there's a whole special formulation behind this. I'm hoping that people can get this in the next day or two. But I'm going to shake it up and try it because I'm super excited. So as I'm shaking this up if you're already a customer of mine or you're already drinking Ketones, what's your favorite flavor? I love them all. I do trial packs of a variety of flavors that you can try.

Brand new Flavor of the day: Blue Ocean

So post five in the comments if you want to learn more about my Mom Fuel. I actually didn't do a live video in the last couple of days because I've been on a virtual event all weekend. And then we were at a volleyball tournament, so I actually don't remember where I left off.

I still need to draw some names, but if you want to have your name put into a drawing for some Mom Fuel, just press the share button. Let me know that you shared it, press the share button. Share the video, so many people need support and accountability on this page.

You're going to have recipes shared throughout the day and great visuals on what are Keto fruits Keto vegetables, and what is a great dessert. What is a net carb versus a total carb? You're going to learn all of the basic fundamentals about Keto, Low Carb things. And then I'll do live videos, I'll do Q and A's and we also do mindset. So if you pressed to share, let me know you shared it, I'll do a drawing tomorrow... So this is the flavor that we're trying, which is not even available yet. Maybe tomorrow or the next day, I'm sure sometime this week. If you already drink Ketones, and you want me to tell you when this new one is available. Post something funny, like tell me when it's available.

Okay! Shaking up blue! Smells like summer to me, it's called "Blue Ocean". It's really great! I know it's going to be really great.

Okay! I'm also going to talk to you while I'm stirring this up. A couple of things that can cause a plateau, and if I miss something, I need you to tell me like this also caused you to hit a plateau or a stall. I'm going to tell you something I learned from Dr. Ryan Lowry who is one of the formulators of Keto NAT. He said oftentimes people think after a week, two, or even three weeks if they're not seeing progress on the scale they've already hit a stall. You really can't say you've hit a stall, or a plateau until it's been six weeks.

This new Flavor tastes so Light and Airy! I Love it!
Your body's adjusting to things, so make sure you're paying attention to inches lost and clothes fitting differently. Different mile markers, and not just the scale because the scale will go up and down. So just be aware that there are different ways to measure.

Also, if there's something that I miss to say or something that helped you get past the stall, share whatever you want below. And if you ask questions as I'm talking, it's hard for me to see them, so I'll get back to you as soon as I'm done... So I'm going to stir this up and I'll taste it in just a second because I'm excited. We had one just like this, so they reformulated it and brought it back. I think the taste is a little different, I remember it tasting more like a pina colada.

But I think it's a little different, I'll let you know now. All right! It's light and airy.

I say that often to my girls. I have four daughters, and we homeschool by choice. I have an incredible husband. And you would think with four daughters they would want to watch movies like Hallmark with me, or Fried green tomatoes and the notebook. But my daughters love to watch movies with their dad, like Avengers. The other day I got outvoted and I had to watch Napoleon Dynamite, those are my girls. So I usually say I would like to watch something "Light and Airy" tonight, that is my saying. This new flavor tastes Light and Airy to me, meaning I love it. The first one that we had a while back was very "coconutty". This is not coconutty, I don't like coconut. But it still tastes a little like a pina colada, but not coconut. I don't know how to explain it, but it's delicious. It's delicious! Some of you have girls, my girls love Avengers and I have to watch all these shooting, and killing movies. Can't we watch something nice and lovey-dovey like Hallmark?...

Don't Cut the Cheese! But Cut back on the Cheese!
Alright! Let's get to the nitty-gritty Keto tip. Here are a couple of things that can cause a plateau or a stall. Again, it's not just in one week, and one of the first things I have people make sure they look into is "Dairy". How much dairy are you eating, or how much dairy are you putting in your coffee?

Oftentimes people will say "I drink four cups of high-fat coffee". I'm like "You're drinking around four thousand calories of heavy cream"... Pay attention to how much heavy cream and dairy you're having. If you're having this for every snack, and every meal, then you have to cut back on the cheese. Don't cut the cheese, but cut back on the cheese. My husband laughed in the other room. So cut back on the cheese and you will hopefully see, sometimes it can cause bloating. Is it a keto snack? 100%. Can you overdo it? 100%... So check out how much cheese you're eating. Okay! I'm holding up an avocado, which signifies all fats. You can overdo fat.

"What? I thought when we're Keto, we can eat as much fat as we want?". Yes, in theory. If you're truly doing a Strict Ketogenic diet, like under 20 carbs a day.

But if you're eating Low Carb, Lazy Keto, or Dirty Keto. Like you're just eyeballing it, eating whatever you want. And you're constantly eating whole avocados, a whole bunch of dairy, all the heavy cream, a pound of bacon, butter, and all of the Keto snacks that you want. If you're eating excessive amounts of fat, just because everybody says you can eat fat, but you're not under twenty carbs a day? Then you can't eat as much fat as you want. You're going to have to even it out. You can add this to your burger, or to your salad, but you don't need to be overeating fat.

Does that make sense? So sometimes it's too much dairy. Unless you're really Strict Keto, then it can be too much fat... My next one goes right along with both of them. "Stop eating when you're not hungry". Even Keto foods, if you're not hungry, you can overeat good food. You don't need all those calories. You don't have to excessively count calories, but you don't have to eat just because it's Keto, Low Carb or it's labeled Keto... This brings me to my next one. How many of you now go to the grocery store and see a ridiculous amount of things that are labeled Keto snacks? Are some of them good? Yes.

Keto Labeled foods are a better option, but not on a daily basis

Are some of them that Keto? Yes. Can you overeat these things? Yes... So these Keto snacks don't need to be a snack every single day in your home. We often bring them with us to volleyball games or when we're traveling. But you don't need to be eating these snacks just because it says, Keto. Like you're at the office, you're really bored, you hit the three o'clock wall, and you just need to munch on something.

That's overeating, so these Keto snacks are a better option. They're not a perfect option, they're something that you use here and there, but not every single day.

Do not keep them on your desk because it's easy to munch and eat all day long, especially things like nuts. You don't need to eat if you're not hungry, and this should be a special treat. You don't need to eat them every single day.

Somebody asked me about this Keto Friendly Bread yesterday... I made french toast with this and they're like, is that really Keto? No, it's really not. Because if you look at the number of ingredients that are in it, it's really not.

It has modified wheat starch. So how is this Keto? How do companies get away with saying these are Keto? I say the tip is to flip. Here's what it does, it actually falls into the Keto, or Low Carb space because it follows the macros. So if you look at it, it says twelve carbs, and it also says dietary fiber twelve. You're basically eating a lot of fiber and you're going to have to poop as soon as you're done eating this. So does it fall into macros? 100%. Is it truly Keto food? Are these Keto foods for somebody that's doing a really strict Ketogenic diet? Somebody who needs to use it for medical reasons, or maybe lose a hundred pounds? I don't want to say severe, but maybe somebody that's not looking to lose like ten or twenty pounds. Is this going to affect them? Not as much as somebody who's doing it because they need to be in Ketosis, or because they need to lose a significant amount of weight...

The Tip Is To Flip and check the Contents at the back
So these foods labeled Keto, are a better option, but not an every single day option. A true Ketogenic diet is eating salads, protein, good fats, veggies, and not a whole bunch of processed Keto foods.

Did we eat this? Yes. In French toast? 100%. I probably haven't made French toast for the girls in probably six months. I don't even remember the last time I made it, but the girls liked it. And then they probably went to the bathroom after that... So I gave you a couple reasons that could cause a stall, that you just need to be aware of. Like Dairy, Overeating good food, too much fat, and if you're not super strict Keto and just eating too many snacks... I hope that was helpful.

So in order to get past a plateau, you need to be doing things like "Intermittent Fasting", or "Tracking your food"... If you feel like it's been two, three months and you're not seeing anything move, then you need to back up a little bit and be aware of what you're eating...

I have this question often, I just had somebody message me the other day, and she said "I'm not feeling the same as I used to. Do you think that my body could just be used to eating Keto?" I said, No. I said, are you eating snacks or tracking your food? Are you really Keto, or are really eating the way that you used to? And then she said "No, I've had too many parties. I've slipped up on my food"... Usually, if you really think about it, you've probably loosened up a little bit. You've allowed too many little treats in, you've skipped some workouts, and you're not drinking your water. The last one I will say is stress. Stress plays a huge part in fat loss or lack of. You might be shocked at how much stress plays a part in what your body holds, so pay attention to that as well.

If you want to know more about my Mom Fuel, post 5
All right! I hope that was helpful. That was your Keto tip!... Going back, in order to go into a fun little drawing tomorrow, just press the share button. Sharing is caring. Let me know that you shared it and I'm going to put your name in the drawing for some Mom Fuel. Otherwise, post five in the comments, I'd love to send you some information on what I'm drinking.

Today is a new formulation of an old flavor, like a new one redone. I'm really excited about this. Hopefully, we'll see it in the next couple of days. I'll let you know when it's available on my stories. Otherwise, reach out with any questions that you have. I am always here to help.

I'll do the drawing tomorrow for all of you to press that share button. I hope you have a great day and we'll talk to you soon. Bye, everybody!
