Welcome to our January 2019 #Keto and #IF #30DayChallenge! I know you are ready to get this year started off Healthy and STRONG 💪🏾🏋️♀️🏃🏾♀️!!! We will eat a Ketogenic diet that includes eating clean with no processed foods & no added sugar or starches. The macros for the Keto diet include 75% fat, 20% protein & 5% carbs.
You can utilize the MyFitnessPal app to keep track of your daily macro intake. This means eating moderate amounts of lean protein, generous amounts of healthy fats including nuts and seeds, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, grass fed butter and more. We will also eat vegetables & low glycemic fruit such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries!
If you want to take your fat burning regimen to the next level eat your meals during an 8 hour window(12-8, 1-9 or 2-10). The benefits of intermittent fasting is life changing and I am a witness as I’ve lost weight, my cholesterol numbers are normal and I no longer have pre-diabetes!!! Our other goals for this challenge is to exercise (3-5 days weekly), eliminate/reduce stress in your life and commit to getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep daily! In addition I recommend you switching to eating organic and/or Non-GMO food. Below are labels that show you how you can identify foods that are organic and/or Non-GMO.
As always consult your doctor before beginning this or any other diet or fitness regimen.

Welcome to our December 2018 #30DayChallenge! I’m excited that you are taking this #Keto and #IF challenge with me! I know this is the time of year that is the hardest to stay on track for a number of reasons from holiday parties to family gatherings and the holiday blues that some of us may experience. For these reasons and more we have to be intentional about sticking to our plan for this month by remembering our WHY!
We will continue to eat a #Ketogenic diet that includes eating clean with no processed foods & no added sugar or starches. This also means eating moderate amounts of lean protein, generous amounts of healthy fats including nuts and seeds, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, grass fed butter and more. We will also eat vegetables & low glycemic fruit such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries! In addition if you want to take your regimen to the next level eat your meals during an 8 hour window(12-8, 1-9 or 2-10). The benefits of intermittent fasting is life changing and I am a witness! This month I lost 13 pounds, my cholesterol numbers are normal and I no longer have pre-diabetes! Our other goals for this challenge is to exercise (3-5 days weekly), eliminate/reduce stress in your life and commit to getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep daily! In addition I recommend you switching to eating organic and/or Non-GMO food. Below are labels that show you how you can identify foods that are organic and/or Non-GMO.
If you are on the fence about starting this challenge do what you can. Start small by committing to exercising at least 30 minutes or more per day for at least 3 days per week and by eliminating all processed foods & added sugars.

Happy Friday!!!! How are you? All is well here! I just wanted to have a #TGIF check in and see how things are going and to share an informative article on Intermittent Fasting that I ran across this week. I truly believe and know from experience that Intermittent fasting is an effective tool in weight loss and diabetes prevention/reversal. As I’ve shared before, I was well on my way to becoming diabetic but when I incorporated the intermittent fasting protocol of eating only between the hours of 10-6pm or 12-8pm as well as eating clean with no snacking, sugar, processed foods nor starchy carbs, it totally shifted my HbA1c numbers as well as my weight.
Let me show you how effective it is. Many of you know that I traveled to London/Paris this past June. Please believe I throughly enjoyed myself calorie wise and could not resist indulging in the pastries, crepes and chocolate… Need I say more? Well when I came back I had a great awakening when my feet hit the scale lol. I knew immediately that I had to get back on track. It’s been a week since I’ve returned and I’ve already lost the 5 pounds I gained in Europe. How? Intermittent fasting!!! Check out this article from Harvard Health on how this is even possible.

It’s our 1st weigh in day for the month of May 2018!!! We are 10 days into this 30 day challenge already! Weigh in tomorrow morning and see how much progress you have made! Also check out this article on obesity from Dr. Jason Fung who is one of the foremost experts in the field of nephrology, diabetes, obesity and fasting. I think its key that we learn these foundational concepts to help get the tools that we need to be successful and to inspire us to stay on track!
Happy Mother’s day in advance to all of the #FitMoms following this post even if you don’t feel fit start by thinking fit and the rest will follow! Much love!
Let’s get it! 🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♂️👊🏾
