INTRO TO KETO
If you're brand new to keto, there are a few things you should know before getting started...
WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. Keto, as it's commonly called, shares many attributes with popularized "caveman" diets such as Paleo and Carnivore.
The ketogenic diet is often referred to as a sugar elimination diet because carbohydrates, whether simple or complex are composed of glucose (aka, sugar molecules), complex carbs are simply longer chains of molecules. Simplified, carb restriction is sugar restriction.

In this masterclass, I'll teach you the basics of the ketogenic diet— what it is, what benefits and side effects to expect while in ketosis, as well as how to get started with the ketogenic diet today.
HOW DOES THE KETOGENIC DIET WORK?
As a result of helping 100's of clients hit their weight loss goals, I've concluded that losing weight isn't nearly as complicated as it's made out to be.
Weight loss really boils down to 4 basic components:
1. Restricting glucose (sugar/carbs)
2. Adding in healthy fats
3. Maintaining consistency and
4. Building in accountability.
Now you may be thinking, "Wait, I thought you said no denial and deprivation, sounds to me like I'll be denying myself sugar and carbohydrates" Let me be clear, my approach doesn't involve calorie counting or black-listing foods. Instead, I encourage you to add in more dietary fat in order to naturally push out the foods that are spiking blood sugar and prompting sugary/starchy cravings. By replacing glucose with fat, you'll effectively address your body's needs. And by addressing your needs, you'll find craving control will be easier than ever before.
WHY CUT BACK ON CARBS?
Most are shocked to hear that carbohydrates (simple or complex) are simply long chains of sugar molecules. Essentially, that means, whether you're reaching for a banana, a baguette, or a bag of Chips Ahoy, your body is breaking it down all the same— converting it to glucose (sugar) and storing the excess as fat. Therefore, a carb-aholic is a sugar-aholic.
The ketogenic diet involves reprogramming the body to rely on fat rather than glucose for fuel.
Are you wondering how a high-fat diet could possibly result in weight loss?
Let me illustrate this with a brief overview of what causes weight gain.
In its simplest breakdown, the body has two basic fueling systems. The body will either take carbohydrates and turn them into glucose for quick-burning fuel. Or it will take fat and convert it into ketones for slow, sustainable fuel. By cutting either pathway, you will lose weight.
So why cut the carbohydrate line?
Well, let's take a closer look at how carbs affect our blood sugar.
After consuming carbohydrates our blood sugar (glucose) rises. When we consume carbohydrates in excess, our cells become full of glucose and the overflow travels off into the bloodstream. This glucose becomes viscous and harmful, packing on weight, clogging our arteries, raising triglyceride levels, and causing inflammation. In contrast, fat has significantly less impact on blood sugar than carbohydrates. Actually, when consumed alone, ingested fats have no bearing on the concentration of blood sugar whatsoever. And just so we’re clear, an excess of any carbohydrate, including both sugar and starch, are stored as fat. And despite what you may believe of “healthy whole grains,” ANY carbohydrate not immediately used by the body is broken down into glycogen and stored away as fat.
Therefore, a sugary diet is the same as a starchy diet.
I realize this information may feel like a serious slap in the face because, like me, you’ve spent your whole life programmed to believe that eating cereal, skim milk, and fruit for breakfast was healthy. I’m sorry to break it to you…
It’s time to reconsider EVERYTHING you think you know about fat.
And more so, it’s time to reprogram the body for optimal performance. And how do we reprogram the body for optimal performance? By drastically reducing our carbohydrate intake and prompting the body into a state of ketosis.

To me, keto is much more than a diet— it's a way of life.
Keto provides me with the framework necessary to fuel my body effectively and efficiently. And I've found when my body is fueled appropriately cravings become 100% more manageable.
"Going keto" has reconditioned my palate to enjoy the taste of unadulterated, wholesome food— essentially allowing me to shift my focus from denial and deprivation to breaking habitual cycles, supplementing with healthy alternatives and allowing occasional indulgences. My ketogenic success has defined my purpose— to help women live a healthier, more vibrant life— beginning on a cellular level.
