Πόσο καιρό κάνετε κετο;
Since the beginning of December 2022
Τι σε παρακίνησε να ξεκινήσεις κετο;
I went on a trip to Hawaii with my ex-boyfriend and best friend. I was 50 pounds overweight. He proceeded to hit on my best friend in front of me the entire time. I decided then and there that I never want to be fat or speak to him ever again!
Ποια οφέλη / επιτυχίες έχετε βιώσει;
I have lost over 40 pounds since December, starting with intermittent fasting then working my way to OMAD and several 24, 48, 72-hour fasts. I LOVE the fasting lifestyle and could not have succeeded without Dr. Mindy Pelz.
Ποιο ήταν το πιο δύσκολο κομμάτι;
Having gone through menopause, as well as having some thyroid issues, I have had to do several extended fasts to break through my weight loss stalls. Currently, I have about 10 pounds to go and have stalled even while fasting. I am now using the recommended supplements for my liver and heavy metal detoxing, plus probiotics to reset my gut health.
Ποια ήταν τα κλειδιά ή τα κορυφαία εργαλεία για την επιτυχία σας;
Dr. Paltz talks a lot about the “Why”. As big a motivator as the weight loss is, curing my addiction to processed flour and sugars as well as alcohol has changed my life. I also took a lot of time to build up to the longer fasts. I love doing my lemon water and Apple Cider Vinegar waters – my new cocktail during my fasts. If I am struggling with just the water, that will usually get me past the 24-hour marker. I also make a plan- how long am I going to fast as well as doing Dr. Pelz’s 4-step process to break the fast so I don’t binge and get a tummy ache which has happened to me before. So I plan to have a hot liquid, as I only eat fish, so I make a nice Miso or chai tea. Then I will eat a little sauerkraut for my probiotics. Then as I am not a huge fan of avocado for the fat- I usually have a big salad with avocado or EVOO. Then possibly a little protein if I am still hungry.
Μετρήσατε τις κετόνες και / ή τη γλυκόζη σας και εάν ναι, πώς σας βοήθησε;
I used the sticks and actually was getting worried I had too many ketones. I am still trying to figure that out. I think I may get the meter from you all.
Ποια είναι η αγαπημένη σας συνταγή κετο; Δώστε έναν σύνδεσμο εάν υπάρχει.
- My favorite meal is poached salmon with a micro green salad with dandelion or kale greens- toasted pumpkin seeds and favorite nut, cucumbers, red onion, and feta. I make a lemon thyme dressing with it. Sometimes I’ll add a little parmesan or Dijon mustard to the dressing.
- I also make this wonderful bread of just seeds and nuts. It is great to freeze and make toast with. I omit the oats and add a bit more psyllium, pumpkin seeds, and ground almonds.
- I also do the all-seed crackers.
- My chia coconut puddings – vanilla and chocolate. Nut and seed granola
- Lots of frittatas with broccoli or spinach and cheese.
- A lot of Indian and Thai curries as well.
Τι συμβουλές ή λόγια σοφίας μπορείτε να μοιραστείτε;
I have been struggling for the past several years to lose the weight I have gained from menopause. Intermittent fasting and Keto have been the keys to reestablishing my health and well-being. I also watch Dr. Pelz’s YouTube videos in the evening to keep me motivated and on track.
Getting rid of processed foods for good has been the best thing I have ever done for my health. I have never felt more clear in my mind and body.
