Healthy Eating for Seniors

Aging is important, and if you are an adult child you most likely have an interest in healthy eating for seniors and how you can help them feel better.

Regardless of what your relationship is to the senior citizen, you may want to do a bit of research to find out what they like and any foods that they may be allergic to.

Every person is different, and every senior will have their own unique health challenges. It is also important to find out what type of medicines they take on a regular basis and how that may interact with certain fruits.

Healthy eating is important for everyone, but as we age, our body needs more nutrients to help us stay on top of our game. Are you caring for a senior parent or other relatives that need better nutrition?

Today, this article is dedicated to healthy eating for seniors and how it impacts their overall wellbeing for boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation, and meeting their daily nutrition requirements.

Why Healthy Eating for Seniors is so Important

Eating healthy may not be fun, and it may not look fun, but it is one of the most important things you can do. No one else is going to take care of you, but you may be taking care of someone else right now.

Most likely you are reading this to help you take care of your senior parent or loved one, and that is a big job. Helping them get their diet and exercise just right is a full-time job along with getting them to doctor’s appointments and other things.

Here are some basic principles to help you help them.

  1. They are more prone to heart problems, so help them eat heart healthy meals. As we age our organs begin to work less efficiently. Make sure that you focus on making meals that are heart healthy, and that can help reduce high cholesterol. These are all things that the aging expect to face, but eating the right diet can help eliminate the unexpected health problems.
  2. Make sure they eat high protein in the morning to give them energy. Although you may believe that a high protein diet is important for bodybuilders, think again. This is important for the elderly as well, simply because it can help them avoid the energy crash early on. They need a lot of energy to keep them active during the day so that they continue to sleep well at night. Everyone needs a certain amount of protein in order to get the energy they need so that they will want to exercise and be involved in activities.
  3. Serve a diet high in fiber. A high fiber diet is important for those who are aging as well. This is because seniors tend to eat less, and having the right amount of fiber in their diet is important to help keep things moving along. A diet high in fiber may also help prevent heart disease in those that don’t have it. A diet high in fiber may also prevent cancer as well as reduce the chances of them becoming diabetic. It all matters!

Senior citizens shouldn’t have a diet that is any less important than what we have, and if you are taking care of your elderly parents or grandparents, it is your job to make sure that they are eating right and getting plenty of exercise.

Keep them moving, walking, and keep them active. Encourage them to be socially active with other seniors so that they feel they have relationships with common ground.

Hopefully this article on healthy eating for seniors helped you to identify where there are opportunities to improve the lives of those you love.

Naturally Build Muscle with a Better Diet

intermittent fasting

Dieting is a topic surrounded by fads in America, and it’s no surprise that naturally building muscle has always appeared to be somewhat of a mystery.

Most folks just want to know how fast they can get thin, gain muscle mass, or they want to know how quickly they can drop a size. Those questions are okay as long as they are being asked in a healthy context.

The one thing our country NEVER has a shortage of is Facebook ads, magazines, or even TV shows that share an affinity for all things muscle and weight loss.

What can you do to improve your chances of losing weight and building healthy, natural muscle?

Your body starts in the kitchen, and it is important that you recognize this for better health. Today, I’ll share with you what you can eat, what you should avoid, and how fast you can build muscle to look and feel like a professional trainer.

Naturally Building Muscle is Easier Than You Think

Today it seems that no one cooks in America and that many families live on a fast food diet. The harsh reality is that the fast food diet can lead to death, weight gain, and a hole in your bank account.

Why isn’t anyone cooking?

Things have changed and times have changed, but it’s no surprise that fewer families are cooking every week night. I can remember when eating out was for a special occasion, and even family holiday dinners are now turning into eating out events.

Cooking yourself is by far the healthiest thing you can do for yourself, and it is essential to saving money as well as reducing preservatives, cutting back on salt, and knowing what you are putting into your body.

Yes, naturally building muscle is going to take:

  • Effort
  • Time
  • Energy
  • Cooking for yourself

There is no magic pill, and fat won’t just melt away if you don’t give that fat something to burn. What can you do?

The first step is trimming the fat. Eating the right food is critical, and then how much you eat become less of a concern. You should also know that a key component of weight loss is getting a good night’s sleep.

A lack of sleep can put stress on the body, and that stress can increase the level of cortisol in your body which promotes fat in problem areas. This includes belly fat as well as fat around the buttocks and thighs. All of the “undesirable” areas.

Eating lean in the beginning is still important so that the muscle you build isn’t buried under fat. You want to trim the fat first, and then work at building muscle.

How you eat to start will determine how you eat to finish. You should also work with a personal trainer to help you figured out which programs are right for you. They are also knowledgeable about nutrition for the specific type of training.

You will continue to see ads for supplements that promise the world but don’t deliver, and those things are okay as long as they do offer some true health benefit, but that isn’t always the case.

If you see someone building muscle that quickly, keep in mind that it is probably some form of steroids. What else should you know and do for the muscle building journey?

Naturally Building Muscle Takes Time

One of the most difficult things concerning fitness and weight loss is seeing results.

Everyone wants instant gratification, but that isn’t always the case. Nothing good happens quickly. Those who want to build muscle need to follow the protocol for trimming down, and then going back to training and eating for that training.

There are hundreds of ways to lose weight, but building muscle is essential to good health as well, and it shouldn’t be an afterthought because you want to be thinner.

Doing things naturally is best, and losing weight and naturally building muscle can be done in a healthy fashion when you eat right, and get the proper training for your body and lifestyle.

Relationship Marketing-Take Your Marketing to the Next Level

relationship marketing

Have you ever heard of relationship marketing?

Chances are, you’ve heard this terminology multiple times over the last few years. I believe it is one of the best terms or phrases to come out with all of the other new terms that have popped up.

Applications abound, mobile responsive sites and blogs abound, but marketing can still feel impersonal when you cannot set eyes on the individual that is writing to you.

It is important that you are able to connect with your audience on a deep and personal level. What does it take for this to become your normal?

Today, I’m going to share with you what the strategy is for relationship marketing, and how you can be sure that you implement it right every time, and foster a customer loyalty that will never fade.

A Strategy for Relationship Marketing

Building long-lasting relationships are critical for a fruitful life and a fruitful business.

This strategy needs to be clear cut and defined in a way that gets customers to fall in love with you, as well as trust you. How you interact with others means a lot, and it’s important that you engage others in conversation so you can hear what they have to say.

If you know nothing about someone, you cannot build a RELATIONSHIP. So, what does this mean and how does this translate into a more successful business for you?

  1. Get to know others. The previous article was about relationships too, but it was on a more personal basis. The personal aspect of building relationships should never go away, but you should know that getting to know others is important. This means that if you are doing so through social media, you still need to ask questions, seek feedback, and let them know that you want them to be a part of what you are doing. Get to know others.
  2. Long-term engagement. Engagement is a big deal, and it’s important that you not only engage with others through social media but that you engage with them through your blog and your live events. There are so many ways that you can engage with your audience, but primarily, you should know that email marketing should be in your arsenal when it comes to building relationships through various marketing methods. Email campaigns give you the opportunity to stay in front of those who have chosen to connect with you, and it means that you can continue to offer them something of value. Products and services as well as encouragement. It all matters.
  3. Connect with them. A message that resonates with someone will NEVER be forgotten. If you are willing to share your story, there is a good chance that someone out there, perhaps thousands will be able to relate or say, “Aha”! This is important because this is where the fortune is made. Connect with people, and give them valuable information to chew on that meets their needs and solves their problems. If you can do this, you will never go out of business. EVER.

Creation an emotional connection is the key to relationship marketing. Would you agree?

Start with Relationship Marketing

Start with the marketing method that allows you to get in front of more people today and every day. Don’t throw something together just to get it up and see if it sticks.

Your audience will recognize this for what it is and it will make you appear lackluster at best.

Focus on forging relationships, listening to what your audience is telling you, and keep working hard to make that emotional connection. Who can you help?

Why Strong Relationships Make for a Great Life

Your relationships are the key to everything you accomplish, and that is why strong relationships make for a great life. It is no secret that life is abundant to those who take hold of it, but it’s our job as individuals to choose wisely with whom we choose to form and nurture relationships.

Every relationship that we form and nurture depends on us, and the choices we make. Are there specific things that we should be doing to help forge new relationships and nurture the ones we already have?

Is there something we can learn from all we are doing and work alongside our peers in the industry in which we work? Today, I’m going to share some tips on building and nurturing these relationships, so that you can live richly with those you already know and love.

I’ll share with you the inside scoop on what I’ve learned, and how many of these relationships have changed my life for the better. You might be surprised at the outcome, and you’ll learn more about why these relationships enhance your life in such a rich fashion.

Why Strong Relationships Make for a Great Life All of Your Life

Okay, I hear ya.

You’re thinking that building relationships with everyone is time-consuming, and you don’t have time for that. I’ll take it a step further and remind you that you don’t have to connect with every single person you meet on a deep level.

However, you never know what will come of a relationship and it’s only fair to give everyone you do meet a few minutes of your time.

Do you know that you can meet a new business partner at the park? You may not know it right then and there, but this has been known to happen. Here are some tips to help you think differently about the people you meet and what they could mean to you in the future.

  1. Spend quality time giving people a chance. It isn’t every day that you’ll meet someone you want to connect with long-term, but spend some quality time with people and you’ll begin to see things differently. It is important to give people a chance and get to know them.
  2. Ask them to share their story. Everyone has a story, and it’s our job to be better listeners. Listening is a lost art, and along the line somewhere, we have to know that it is vital to hear the story and take from that how it shapes that individual. It is only fair to listen and then assess how you can be a part of their lives. See the good in people and then help further that good along.
  3. Place them where they can tap into their talents. Once you choose to bring someone on board to your team, place them where they work best. What gifts and talents do they have? What are they most passionate about? Place them where they can be utilized, and where their God-given talents can shine. Placing team members in positions where they are not gifted will make them feel uncomfortable. Let them adjust and use what they know best before you cross-train them.

There are numerous ways to build relationships, but the ONLY right way is to take the time to get to know people and LISTEN to their story. Allow others to share their stories, trials, and their successes with you.

Once you know what they want out of life, you can then learn more about their goals and how far they can go. There isn’t a short cut to building relationships.

This is why strong relationships make for a great life. Would you agree?

Strong Relationships Make for a Great Life When You Nurture Them

One last important thing I want to share about building long-term relationships, whether in life or in business, is this. Consider that nurturing the relationship takes time and TLC.

There is a lot more to this than meets the eye.

If you help others get what they want, you will ultimately get what you want. It is all about helping others, and if you do this, you will be a huge success with people in general.

People are necessary to do great things, and if you give them the opportunity, they will be productive and they will have much to offer you in the future.

Nurture their gifts and talents. If someone is not good, look for the good and then nurture it. There is good in everyone if you take the time to find it.

It is all about relationships, and strong relationships make for a great life.

Thoughts on Leadership and Self-Deception

3 ways to stand out

Have you read the book “Leadership and Self-Deception“?

Talking with teammates and mentors about leadership has shown us that clearly there is a massive breakdown in leadership in business.

Have you ever functioned in a managerial role? If so, how were you perceived by your team? Those who have been in a leadership role often fail to see that their job requires so much more than just “running the show”.

If you are not highly respected by your peers or your staff, you may want to reconsider how you are running your show. In fact, consider that you may want to focus more on running with those who work with you.

What are the desires and aspirations of your team? What are their goals and dreams? If you don’t know the answer, it’s time to read through this review on “Leadership and Self-Deception.”

You will begin to understand how to have a greater impact on your team, and you will also realize why it is a tremendous error to see those you work with as expendable and replaceable on a dime.

How Leadership and Self-Deception Go Hand in Hand

Working in a leadership role can be a total blessing, but just remember why you were put there.

Whether you worked hard, or you found God’s favor, you most likely followed the laws of success no matter what. Those who don’t abide by the laws of success will not come out on top on the winning edge.

However, this doesn’t mean that for a season individuals are not placed in leadership positions without merit. Sometimes, not all are faithful. The most important thing you can do is focus on you and what you can control.

Have you ever lied to yourself?

This is where “Leadership and Self-Deception” come together. You can tell yourself that you can do something because you are in charge, or you can choose to do the right thing and champion the cause of someone else.

The storyline in the book, about Tom, is a great eye-opener for those of us who have said, “well, one more donut won’t hurt me”. Yikes. I’ve done that. Have you?

It makes you think about how and why we choose to do certain things, and not all of those choices are good. Self-destruction is where it ultimately leads, and that can be dangerous to you and all involved.

The most interesting thing about this book, is that it is written by the Arbinger Institute. This means that a committee had to come together to submit ideas and prepare to write this book.

The story of Tom and his situation are quite common. He believes that he has been wronged by someone stealing his business, but throughout the story line he doesn’t ever see that he contributes to the problem.

At some point, you may begin to think that you relate to this guy in every way. You may think, “Gee, I know what it’s like to be in that situation. I know how awful that is, and I can’t believe so and so did that to me.”

What if you were to look at the story in a different light?

What if you asked, “How did I contribute to this mess?”

Tom learns as he goes that he should see employees or team members as people, and not just “workers”, or “employees”. Tom begins to understand that although these team members may not do everything right, they may be doing their absolute best.

Other Great Lessons from Leadership and Self-Deception

Along with great insights, there is also great entertainment.

Tom appears to have some road rage when he shakes his fist at a driver, and later he realizes it was his neighbor that he had an encounter with earlier that day. Wouldn’t this make you feel uncomfortable?

I can somewhat identify with Tom because I’ve heard something, made snap judgments and only to find out later that it wasn’t true.

Things are not always what they appear to be, but we believe the lie that what we see is what we are getting. This is almost never the case.

The question that this book poses, and that is super critical, is whether or not an individual who sees people as people rather than pawns in a game is worth more.

Does this mean that an individual like this can be a better manager or leader?

There will be times when you have to decide that certain things are NOT in the best interest of the company, as well as NOT in the best interest of the employees.

These are the tough decisions that leaders face, but this is okay.

Change takes time, and believe it or not, it is critical that every organization take this position if they want to champion the development of real leaders.

If you want to see situations in your workplace, or building your business through new eyes, I highly suggest that you grab a copy of “Leadership and Self-Deception.”

The Influence of Love

moving forward

The influence of love is pretty strong, and it is amazing that so few people in this world love their spouse or children as passionately as God loves us.

When someone says that they are, “under the influence of love”, I think about a new relationship. I think about a couple that has just begun dating, or perhaps a young couple that is of high-school age.

You might refer to this as “puppy love”, but it does exist.

If you have never read the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, you should get your hands on it. Some say it’s “radical”, others say it’s really just “crazy”.

Whatever you choose to call it, you should know that God is probably just crazy enough to love us. Our wretched nature is enough to turn people away, regardless of how good we look or smell.

Human beings can only express the love of God the best way they know how, or how they can relate to it. What would it take for you to know that you are loved fully and that without a doubt you are forgiven of all the wrong you’ve ever done in your life?

What if you knew that feeling of unconditional love?

It’s so rare, but today, I want to share with you what I’ve learned about the nature of God, and how important it is that we focus on learning more about how deeply He loves us, and why it’s the key to living out the rest of our time here on earth.

The Influence of Love is Strong

It’s no surprise that love can change the way you see things, but it can also change the way you view things. The influence of love in my heart and mind, and even in my household is exemplified through the love of God.

The greater question may even be, what is the actual influence of love? It’s something so strong, that it causes people to see the truth about themselves and the individual that loves them.

Having said that, I want to share with you what God says about love, and why His love is so strong, and that nothing can separate us from that love.

We know that:

  • God sent His ONLY son to die (John 3:16)
  • God teaches that we should treat others how we would want to be treated (Luke 6:31)
  • God teaches that love should be sincere and hate what is evil (Romans 12:9)
  • God teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:31)
  • God teaches us that love does no harm to anyone or anything (Romans 13:10)
  • God teaches us that love does not keep score or record of wrongs, and that love is kind, patient, and influences our relationships in a way that generally does not present the way we live as human beings (I Corinthians 13:4-8)

Clearly, the strongest possible influence is one that is sacrificial. As a father, I tried to put myself in this situation. I really tried to imagine giving up my son to die for a wretched, and sinful world like the one we live in today. I have to be honest and tell you that there is no way I could give up any of my children to die.

It is also hard to imagine loving people so much, that you are able to love them as you love yourself, and it is hard to imagine that you would drop everything to help someone regardless of how well you know them.

What about loving someone completely, no matter what they have done? It is hard to imagine this, and it is difficult to think that you could go without reminding someone of the wrong they have done.

Real love, deep love, that is unconditional, truly is an amazing gift, and it is so rare. In fact, this love that has so much influence is much needed, and when it is freely given it can change the other individual within the relationship.

Are you able to show your spouse this kind of love? What about your children? Your co-workers, and even your boss? There are many different ways that you can show others you love them.

The question is, is your love strong enough to influence them?

Do You Have the Influence of Love?

Now that you know a bit about where my influence comes from, think about what influences you most. Is it money, fame, fortune, or something else?

What about your business. Do you believe that you can influence them enough to join you, buy from you, or even refer you? What is is that you want most out of your life or business?

Love is always first.

Love goes a long way in not only relationships with your family, but even your love for the Lord carries over into your business and how you treat people.

Do you create value for them and put their best interest first? Do you see them as just a number or do you see them as a valuable part of what you do?

Allow love to influence your life in multiple ways, and don’t be afraid to share your love with others. God loves you fiercely, and it is important that you allow that to sink in.

God is love, and it should and can permeate every aspect of your being.

Always let the influence of love be the greatest source for everything in your life.

 

Nocturnal Noshing: 6 Snacks to Eat Before Turning In

intermittent fasting

Have you heard of nocturnal noshing?

I recently read an article entitled, “Nocturnal Noshing: 6 Snacks You Can Eat Before Bed“. This article is phenomenal, and it offered up some information that was surprising…at least for me anyhow.

Here is the article itself.

Your metabolism never takes a break, even while you sleep. Give it the energy it craves with easy-to-make snacks that fuel muscle growth!

Inexperienced dieters commonly believe anything consumed in the hours right before bed goes directly to body fat stores. Sounds like a nightmare for your physique! The real nightmare is that they end up going to bed hungry, wake up with minimal energy, and wonder why they feel like crap despite being disciplined.

Wake up! Your metabolism never fully shuts down, even overnight. Eating too many calories or bad foods before bed adds fat to your frame, but not all nocturnal noshing begets extra body fat.

The trick is to be smart before sleep time. If you snack late, make room for the extra calories earlier in the day to obey your target calorie limit. Choose foods which fuel muscles, keep hunger levels low, and promote stable blood glucose levels … so your brain doesn’t wake up your body.

These six snacks provide quality nutrition that supports fat loss and muscle building, helping you forge the body of your dreams:

1. Cottage Cheese With Natural Peanut Butter

Considered a classic night-time nosh by many health enthusiasts, cottage cheese with natural peanut butter is a snacking no-brainer.

Cottage cheese is ideal before bed because it includes lots of casein protein, which releases slowly into the body. This ensures a steady supply of amino acids through the night.

Adding natural peanut butter to this snack increases digestion time, enhancing the snack’s ability to control hunger.

Keep the peanut butter to a tablespoon or less to avoid heavy calories!

2. Salmon

Salmon is a perfect pre-bed food source because it’s high in protein content and contains healthy omega fats. Many people fall short in omega fat content. This goes a long way to supporting your overall health!

Add salmon with salad to add bulk and fiber for the perfect low-carb option before turning in.

3. Greek Yogurt With Flaxseeds

Like cottage cheese, Greek yogurt is high in protein and packs a calcium punch. Boost the healthy fat content of this low-fat snack with some flaxseeds.

Together, these deliver a steady dose of fiber, protein and omega fats!

4. Low-Fat Cheese With Raw Veggies

If you crave cheese, this is your pre-bed meal. Regular cheese is high in saturated fat, so opt for a reduced-fat variety with a healthy dose of protein.

Cheese is carb-free, making the fat/protein combination just what you’re looking for! Include raw green veggies (cucumbers, celery or broccoli) for some negligible calories.

5. Canned Tuna With Olive Oil

Tuna is a great option for people wanting minimal prep work. Canned tuna packed in water is fat free, so it’s important to add healthy fats to boost the staying power overnight.

Drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil over the tuna and serve with a bed of spinach for an iron-packed snack that prepares you for the day to come.

6. A Casein Protein Shake With Coconut Oil

If solid food isn’t your forte before bed, consider a casein protein shake. We discussed the benefits casein provides in cottage cheese earlier. But you can also get it in protein powder!

Most casein shakes are low in fat. To overcome this, add fats by stirring in a tablespoon of coconut oil, which provides heart-healthy medium-chain triglycerides.

This snack contains approximately 200 calories and helps repair muscle overnight.

How to Generate Leads with High Value Reports

content marketing and seo

Have you been trying to figure out how to generate leads online in less time and fewer marketing methods? Chances are, you found this article because you’ve spent far more than you planned to spend on generating leads.

Perhaps you purchased leads from an online marketing bank, or you may have even purchased the latest and greatest tool to help you crank out leads, but they just aren’t coming fast enough.

There is also the common problem of generating leads, but they just aren’t qualified. You seem to get those individuals that just want a quick fix to their problems, and they want a get-rich-quick scheme.

At the end of the day, what you need to do is go back to the basics.

Remember this……education is everything.

Information ALWAYS wins the day, and without educating your readers, you’ll be hard-pressed to get them to come around to your way of thinking.

There is no doubt a right and a wrong way to attempt to generate leads. While there is no one perfect way to get more folks to come to you, devour your content, and ultimately buy from you, you should know that there is a great tool you can use to drive traffic.

You can easily attract more readers with valuable information that they can easily access to download. This download should be concise, clear, and above all, it should get your reader to want more from you.

Can you get your readers to eat our of your hand?

Let’s take a look at how you can make this happen through the use of high value, FREE reports that your readers can download in PDF format, and share with others.

Generate Leads with a FREE Report

Generating leads online is easier than you think, but the best part is that it’s all done with a tool that is easy for everyone to access too.

Using a FREE report as a lead magnet is a great way to share valuable information with your audience that gives them insight to why they should desire your product or service.

Giving them sound information with the statistics to back it up will give them the feeling that they are reading valuable information from someone who is an expert.

The key to standing out above the noise in your industry is to give your audience what most others will not. Give them facts, figures, and above all, a way to find you.

This is fairly simple with a FREE report that your readers can download, however, keep in mind that your readers need information they can filter out to others that they are marketing to.

Let’s go back and take a quick look at how this report is going to help you generate leads.

  1. Gives the visitors to your website or blog valuable information. Reading a report that is loaded with facts and giving them an education will put you in the spotlight as the expert in your industry. The only way to really stand out in the marketplace is to be different, and a big part of this is writing a report that is easy for your audience and readers to access and share with others.
  2. You become the expert, no matter what. Okay, so you may not be an expert? You don’t have to be to get started, but if you study your craft as you go, you’ll learn more and more, and sharing valuable information with others is what makes you look more like an expert. Those who hoard information won’t get very far, and they will struggle to live abundantly. Always, always share what made you successful in the report if you are coaching or mentoring others in any fashion.
  3. This can help you start building a list. Publishing a FREE report for your readers not only gives them what they need, and the first impression of you, but this will also help you start building your list. It’s quite simple; publish the report, and only allow those who give up their name and email to access this report. They are not paying for what you’ve provided, and you’ll now have one more individual that you can market your products and services to.
  4. Traffic, traffic, traffic! As you share your content through social media channels and readers grab this information from your website, you’ll begin to see an uptick in your traffic. This is great news because traffic should ALWAYS be at the forefront of your mind. Without visitors to your website, how can you sell anything? It’s so important that you drive traffic to your website with a blog, or a landing page with this report. Getting readers to take notice, and then getting them to share content is how this process occurs. Don’t ever forget about traffic.

There is no doubt that you have a need to get traffic and get in front of as many eyeballs as possible, but without the right tools you’ll fail to do so.

Don’t be fooled into believing that the only way to drive traffic to your blog, website, or social media pages is with a ton of paid traffic. Those things are all important, and believe me……they have their rightful place.

Creating value for others should be at the core of everything you do. If you would like to learn more about this marketing method, and how you can generate leads online with a blog, please comment below or contact me directly at jameshunter40@gmail.com.

 

 

The Diet Revolution with Ketogenesis

intermittent fasting

Have you heard about or read about the diet that puts your body into a state of ketogenesis?

It’s an interesting term, and it’s one that you don’t hear about often, but that may be because it is under such scrutiny by doctors and dietitians everywhere.

The question most folks are asking is, “If a high-protein diet and working out isn’t really working for me, why not try something different?”

While I was a bit skeptical myself, I have to tell you that I’ve learned so much, and with all I’ve read and researched so far, the research is quite compelling.

The keto diet plan is a lot better than I bargained for, meaning it’s easier than I bargained for. The thing is……I feel phenomenal. Fad diets have been a problem in America for decades.

Suffice it to say that most women have tried every diet on the planet.

It’s fascinating that doctors would support a high-fat diet, but there is much more to it than that. In fact, if you could try a new way of eating that is easy, flavorful, and actually, produces results, then hang onto your hats.

If you are not familiar with the ketogenic diet, it’s time to sit back, buckle your seatbelt, and get ready for the ride of your life. What you are about to learn is a unique way of eating, and one that has doctors re-thinking how they are telling their patients to eat.

I’m going to walk you through the basic principles of what it means to eat a diet that is based on ketogenesis.

What the Heck is Ketogenesis?

Yup, it’s an interesting word but it’s fun to say.

Ketogenesis.

This word defines a biochemical process, and that process is what produces a body of ketones. You may have heard that raspberries contain high amounts of ketones, and it’s true.

However, eating a container or two of raspberries won’t get you there. It’s a lifestyle that gets you there. This amazing breakdown of fatty acids is what starts this process.

I think everyone in the world that has ever struggled with their weight would love to heard the phrase, “Breakdown of fat”. It’s so much more than fatty acids, and it’s a lot more than eating “high-fat”.

What else does this word mean?

Ketogenic refers to the breakdown of ketogenic amino acids as well, and that is what science refers to as the precursor to ketone bodies.

The idea is that instead of eating a diet that converts into glucose (sugar), that you eat a diet high in fat, so that what your body ends up burning is fat.

You may have heard people jokingly use the phrase, “Fat is where it’s at!” This my friend, is so true. Why?

When fat is burned, energy is supplied to the most important organs, one of which is the brain. Could you stand to have more energy transferred to your brain?

I know I could…..and…..some folks I know. (That is another story).

The thing is, it takes doing some homework upfront, and it’s important that you follow the protocol. If you don’t follow the doctor’s instructions, you can take away too many carbs, and not get the proper ketogenic aspect of it.

The basic principle of the diet is this:

  • Just the right amount of fat
  • Moderate amounts of protein
  • Low-carb at just the right level

Ketones are actually produced in the liver, and this is interesting because everything passes through the liver. Consider the process of metabolism.

Drugs have to metabolize just like everything else you consume, and therefore, it only makes sense that if you feed your body a certain way, that your metabolism would balance itself.

Here is a simple principle to help you understand what happens when following a keto diet plan. When fasting, the body will draw from its reserves, and therefore it will begin to burn fat.

Read that again….nice and slow.

This doesn’t mean that you can drink soda because you are eating high-fat. This also doesn’t mean that you eliminate carbs completely from your diet. That isn’t healthy either.

This diet is about finding the balance of fat, moderate amounts of protein, and just the right level of low-carbs. The whole point is to tire out and frustrate the body’s storage of carbohydrates, and then ultimately to make sure that the body is burning fat.

There is a lot of science to support this, but I am not a scientist or a doctor, therefore I won’t attempt to use any scientific jargon. What I can tell you is that the basic principles above are what I’ve learned, and following the kick-start plan in the book, Keto Clarity has worked for me and thousands of others.

This also includes the authors of the book, Dr. Westman, Jimmy Moore, and the countless other doctors that have participated in this book.
