Do you struggle to lose weight?
Or, feeling as fit and energized as you want to be?
I know I certainly have.
It has been a long road of taking care of my health over the last 35 years and during it I have discovering amazing things about myself.
I always knew I had a horrible digestive system. I’d frequently have debilitating bowel cramps, diarrhea, nausea, constant belching, hypoglycemic reactions, bloating and weight gain. Which would all lead to chronic fatigue and headaches.
When I first got sick as a teenager the one thing I worked the most on was my digestion, nutrition and detoxing. And for a few years this seemed to be enough to fall back on every time my symptoms would creep back.
Life events would lead me down a self destructive path and I’d start to eat those crappy North American comfort foods and I’d be right back where I started.
That is about the time I discovered Dynamic Medicine and as I worked on the underlying emotional, mental, inherited and karmic trauma’s, the physical also cleared a great deal.
The problem was, that by this time my physical body had found a pattern, I was stuck in insulin resistance and no matter how clean I thought I was eating with a Paleo style diet, I couldn’t seem to shake the fatigue and moderate weight gain.
Then a couple years ago life presented me with a great opportunity – Ketopia!
Now I had known about Nutritonal Ketosis about 20 years ago, but every time I tried to get there on my own through restrictive dieting (aka cutting out ALL sugar in every form) I couldn’t make it.
I’d get such extreme detox symptoms from the dumping of the glycogen out of my cells that I would be literally debilitated in bed with a migraine and bowel pains.
So I’d give up.
When Forever Green, the supplement company I joined a couple years ago, came out with a product, created by a doctor to help put the body into Nutritional ketosis, easier and without most of the side effects; I was in!!
I wrote about that first experience here –
I did the program off and on for 3 months and over that time I went from a size 9/10 to a 5/6 with little difficulty and only moderate exercise. (really didn’t change my exercise routine at all).
Oddly enough however, my weight did not go down nearly as much as I wanted it to. I started around 154 pounds and ended around 140 pounds. I had wanted to get to 125 pounds.
But here is the thing. When in Nutritional ketosis, you don’t lose water weight and you retain all your muscle mass (it’s a biological factor of the survival mechanism that is ketosis).
So after this initial loss, I was happy and just cruised along for the next 3/4 of a year maintaining that weight loss easily through mainly a Ketogenic lifestyle, with the odd cheat day each week.
NOW – it’s a new year and I figure heck, I have a great system and new knowledge about how to help my body, not only get rid of unwanted and unhealthy fat that stores toxins and created havoc with all of our systems; but can also help me lean out my body even more, so I can achieve my dream physical physic!!
