Keto Mom here!
Most of the time, besides little things, like not eating when you're not hungry, moving your body, stress and sleep play a factor in it. Most of the time, people just lack patience, I know sometimes this can be harsh, but you didn't get here overnight. You're not going to get there overnight. It takes time, it takes your mindset. That's why I love to read every single morning to you, because the biggest factor in in any lifestyle choice and any lifestyle that you're going to keep long term, is in your mindset. If you don't believe in yourself, if you're not fueling your mind right, if you're not in an accountability group, if you don't have people that believe in you, if you don't believe in yourself, then you're going to quit. You're going to quit, over and over again.

Hey everybody! I hope you're having a great day, I am back and we are going to talk about What hinders fat loss, and drawing some names to give away one of my favorite books, a 24 hour fast and some trial kits of my mom fuel. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? If you were expecting me to do this an hour later, it's my day just got shifted, and it's totally fine, you can watch the replay. We are celebrating Six years of the Keto Mom page being launched. Basically, we started this page just to simply share what we were doing on our journey. We are not doctors, we are not anything but moms and dads, and we've just shared our journey over the last six years, starting July 1st 2015.
So I've got six things that could be hindering your fat loss, most of you are here for that. And then you usually stay because you feel incredible, and you want to make a lifestyle out of this.
I am going to be doing the drawing after I walk you through, I just want to give you a basic concept of what might be hindering you from your fat loss journey. I'd love for you to also press the share button, sharing is caring. We've got so much going on, and our weeks have been great. We've got four daughters, we've got four dogs, you might hear them behind me. Our girls, we had horse camp and ballet camp today, we've got some friends that have a baseball game, so everybody's out of the house. That's why I'm doing this right now. I've also got a team zoom in a little bit. All the fun things, I love to be busy, so that's a little bit about me. Here's the deal...
Six things of what might be causing you to not get the fat loss that you are wanting. Number one, "Do not just look at the scale"...
Do not look just look at the scale, because fat loss is inches loss. I wish I would have grabbed my five pounds of fat. Have you guys ever seen that? It's like a big chunk of fat, sometimes it's in our kitchen, in our in our office or in our bedroom. It's disgusting, it's like this big blob of fat. Fat Loss is different than weight loss... When people go on a diet, they restrict themselves and usually don't eat enough calories, so they start losing muscle. Fat loss, you're going to notice it in inches lost, how your clothes are fitting, maybe you'll notice it in your face. You might notice things like you can walk further, you're not breathing heavy. When you're at the gym, you can do more reps, and you can stay up longer. You don't need naps, and you can think clear. All of those things are benefits that you're probably not seeing right away, and the scale might not catch up right away. But you will see it eventually. Think about it like this, if you are drinking more water and less sugary drinks, cut back on the processed sugar and carbs, made better choice and you're moving your body, then it takes time. I know you don't love that, but you're going to notice it because your body's going to change. I talked about this in my stories today, whether you're on Instagram or Facebook, click through the stories. There was a certain number that I wanted to hit. I don't think I'll ever weigh that number because as I was losing the last little bit of baby weight after I had our fourth daughter, I was weightlifting.
Now I weightlift and I'm pretty sure my weight is where I'd be like I'd love to lose another five pounds, maybe six or seven pounds. But I've been weightlifting for a long time and muscle weigh more than fat.
If I solely stick to the scale, I would get frustrated but I can see it. So pay attention to how your clothes are fitting, inches lost, look in the mirror, take some pictures, you can see fat loss and keep going. Number two, Stress and Sleep. People underestimate the power of stress and sleep. If you are stressed out, you cannot calm your brain, you go to bed stress, you're going throughout your day stressed, sometimes we can't help it. But there are things you can do to destress your life, like reading, listening to podcasts, listening to books, taking a long shower, or going for a walk. Little things like that to get your mind to settle and sleeping. Not being on the phone scrolling in your bed, using blue blockers, not watching TV an hour before bed. Not eating something sugary before bed, not snacking before bed, or take a bath.
There are things you can do to reduce your stress, get better sleep and that will help you with fat loss. Most people, they've done all of these things.
My next question is, how was your sleep and how is your stress? Those are affecting your goals. Number three, Moving. Most people say I don't have an hour to go to the gym, I don't want to spend an hour in the gym. I can't physically move that long or the doctor says I can't do strenuous workouts. Your fat loss will come in the kitchen, which means pay attention to the food that you're eating. And if you can physically move, go for a walk, ride your bike, go for a swim, play basketball with your kids, do some basic movements in your home. You don't have to kill yourself in the gym, because that is not going to equate to this large amount of fat loss that you want. Instead, it is about the food and then move your body just to get your body flowing. Okay, Number Four, Too much butter. I wrote down too much butter, and some of you might not like this, but some of you are eating too much fat.
And you might say we're Keto, but if you are not strict keto, or under twenty carbs a day and you're eating all of the fat that you want then you're eating too much.
One of them was overeating, so I'm going to put these two together. If you're eating a pound of bacon in the morning, and you're eating all of the Keto snacks that you want, if you're saying I can have it because it's a fat bomb, and it's not a big deal it's Keto. If you find yourself snacking throughout the day, you grab the entire container of nuts and plop down on your couch. If you are saying I'll have my fifth cup of fat coffee, I'll just throw that fat butter in there and I'll throw the heavy cream. If your mindset is, I can eat that, because it's Keto and I can snack on that it's keto.
You find yourself eating when you're not hungry, then clearly you're overeating. If you are not strict keto, meaning you're not under twenty carbs a day, and you're eating all the fat that you want, then you are over eating good food.
Do not eat if you're not hungry, your body will tell you. Like today at two o'clock, my stomach started growling, we kind of had a late breakfast. I didn't intermittent fast this morning, and we had a late breakfast. So then around two o'clock, I was like I'm hungry. I didn't go to the cupboard, or the kitchen or to the to the refrigerator at noon, because it's lunchtime. We were busy, we were doing stuff, my kids didn't ask me if they were hungry. So I'm not going to make food if nobody's hungry. And at two o'clock, we had a late lunch because we were hungry and I actually felt it, so I ate.
Oftentimes when somebody is bored, or you're eating because the clock says to eat, go drink some water. Get out of the kitchen, get out of the office lounge room, go shut that candy drawer, you don't need to eat if you're not hungry.
And then lastly, you might not be in Ketosis. If you're doing lazy keto, low carb, your body might not be making Ketones, and that's okay, if you're still making better choices. But Ketones in your system help with your energy to move, your focus to make better choices, your appetite control, so you're not grabbing the sweets. Your energy, your mindset, your mood and Ketones help with sleep, whether you're making them or you're drinking them. So there's so many things that play a factor in fat loss. We talked about the scale is not the only way to measure. Inches lost, clothes fitting differently. We talked about sleeping & stress, how they play a factor on your fat loss.
We talked about making better choices, do not eat if you're not hungry. You do not need to be eating the fat bombs all day long, I don't care if they're Keto. You can overeat good fat. And if you're not in true Ketosis, making them or drinking them, that will help you in all of those areas to make better choices. Moving your body in some way, shape, or form if you can. All of those play a part in your fat loss. super important. So here's what we're going to do. I am going to draw some names for these two books. If you follow me every single morning, we've been going through a book every single day.
So we first went through the book, "Rain or Shine" by Scott Alexander in May, and in the beginning of June, we went through the "Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod. Now we're going through "Atomic Habits" by James Clear. Every morning, I do a live and I'm like, here's what I read. Here's what you can do to take action on the things that you've read. We're going to go through "The Traveler's Gift" by Andy Andrews, next. It's incredible, it's going to be a completely different book than the books we've done in the past. This is more of a perspective, mindset, storytelling incredible book.
So I have a little bowl of names that my kids helped me draft. We're going to do a fun drawing for this book, I've got two of them for you. If you want to join us, you can go grab the book.
I'm pretty sure it's at Barnes and Noble, or Amazon, and you can join us, we'll probably be starting middle of July. Okay, first book winner is Roxanne Acropolis! You won the first book, I need your address. I grabbed another one, Alfred Ynda! You won a book Alfred. So you two won "The Travelers Gift" book. Those are the book winners, I will put these names in the books that so I do not forget, I need your address. And if you want to join us, you can either just tune in every single day for the chapter of the day, or you can grab the book and read along with us. But this is the one we'll be going through soon, right now we're going through "Atomic Habits"... All right, we're going to draw for the 24 hour fast. If you want to know more about the 24 hour fast, it's incredible. We do it once a week as a group, and it's great. It helps you rest and reset your body. Whether you're drinking ketones, doing this, or we talked about the 60 hour keto reboot earlier today.
So the 24 hour fast goes to Jessica Rinakar! I hope you're on here, and if you're not, I'll come and find you and I need your address. I was going to draw a couple names just to give away three packs a three trial kit of my mom fuel. So right now we have the 60 our keto reboot going on, we do it once a month. And in the reboot, you will drink everything in here for 60 hours. So it's like a fast, you drink the broth for your lunch and your dinner, you drink the ketones, we've got the electrolytes, and all those things. I'm going to do a drawing, so you can try three packets of my mom fuel. If you have no idea what this is, I drank it six years ago, it puts Ketones in my system every day.
Some of you drink pots of coffee, some of you drink energy drinks, but I drink ketones. So my body can make them and I can drink them, it helps me with my energy everyday. I have not taken an app in six years, it helps me with my focus to homeschool our girls. My appetite control, my cravings, and all of those things.
So if you want to know more about the fast, whether it's the 24 or the 60, just post fast in the comments, and we'll get back to you later. Otherwise, if you want to know more about my mom fuel, just trying this, because you're like there's no way I'm going to fast. I hear you, I would not have done that six years ago. I actually did not do intermittent fasting right away. I did not do any type of fast till about three years into my journey. I drank Ketones once or twice a day, I did the best I could with my food, one day at a time, one meal at a time. So the first name is Holly Jo Heathman, your the winner of my mom fuel, and Jen Dunlop! So Jen and Holly, you won three packets of my mom fuel. All right, I'm going to send those to you. I'll do more of this, I just got to figure out some fun contests that we could do so that you guys could win some...
I hope that was also helpful to you, to have an understanding, have an awareness of what fat loss is, and what can hinder your fat loss. Most of the time, besides little things, like not eating when you're not hungry, moving your body, stress and sleep play a factor in it. Most of the time, people just lack patience, I know sometimes this can be harsh, but you didn't get here overnight. You're not going to get there overnight. It takes time, it takes your mindset. That's why I love to read every single morning to you, because the biggest factor in in any lifestyle choice and any lifestyle that you're going to keep long term, is in your mindset.
If you don't believe in yourself, if you're not fueling your mind right, if you're not in an accountability group, if you don't have people that believe in you, if you don't believe in yourself, then you're going to quit. You're going to quit, over and over again.
You're going to get frustrated, you're going to come back, you and I are going to chat, then we're going to start over. It's just a vicious cycle. love to read, I love to inspire people, I want you to read with me or at least listen to me. So I can help get it in your mind that it is important of what's going on in your mind. If you're lying to yourself every day saying that you can't do it, you're not good enough, that's a lie! You can do it, you just need a little bit of help.
You need a little bit of a perspective shift, which this book is going to help you with. This book "The Travelers Gift" is going to help you with that.
