Video: What’s Wrong With The Ketogenic Diet #keto #lowcarb #highfat

Where the ketogenic diet for health and weight loss fails and what you can do instead to create a keto eating style that works with you… for life.

I’ve been eating “keto” for nearly a year. It’s an eating style that focuses on fat as the primary source of all intake in an effort to “flip the switch” on our metabolism, enabling us to burn fat as energy instead of glucose (sugar).

When I first started on this journey, I was appalled with the resources out there. Many people, places, and spaces were recommending oodles of dairy, with very little mention of the quality of ingredients used, low-carb and keto products galore, and vegetables were consumed on a very, very minimal basis.

After months of creating a high-fat, keto eating style that worked best for me, I experienced a dramatic loss in my weight, hormone regulation and healing on all levels. I packaged up the keto program I’d developed and called it The Keto Beginning – a whole foods approach to ketogenic eating. I shared it so that our community could benefit from a whole food approach to high-fat, keto living beyond what “conventional” keto resources out there were offering.

A must-watch if you’re keto or interested in high-fat, keto living with a focus on nutrient-dense whole, keto foods for lifelong health.

Done right, eating high-fat, keto has the potential to detox our bodies from bad estrogens, eliminate sugar cravings, connect us with our bodies, help us build trust in our appetite and the signals our body sends us, maintain a healthy weight, regulate hormones, and more.

The key to success is being open to finally creating your eating style, with a focus on fats, a reduction in carbs and seeing where your body takes you.

  1. Hi Leanne,
    I have been on a ketogenic diet for about 6 months but fell of the wagon when I had visitors from overseas with me. I found it hard to cater for 7 individuals at that time. Now I cant get back on track. Yet alone to get into ketosis. I used to love the bullet proof coffee but lately Im unable to stomach it. would you have a tip how I can get back on track?

    • I know that I feel best when I eat keto, so I like to focus on that when I need motivation. Perhaps think about all of the reasons that you started keto in the first place and your favorite parts about eating that way. I hope this helps! :)

  2. Hi Leanne! I’ve just stumbled upon your videos, and I love love them! I was wondering, as a holistic nutritionist, if you’ve heard of exogenous ketones?

    • Yes, I have! They’re interesting and can be helpful to some, though, I prefer using whole foods to get into ketosis.

  3. question for ya…. My husband is slowly but surly easing into low carb eating. I have been eating low carb and also drinking a bulletproof coffee in the mornings and would like him to do it as well because he doesn’t eat breakfast till late anyway. He is super picky when it comes to eating so I looked on Pinterest to see if there where any recipes for bulletproof coffee that are flavored and found 2 that he might like. I will post these below.

    Bulletproof Hot Cocoa

    Bulletproof Hot Cocoa


    1/2 cup filtered water
    1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
    2 tbsp grass-fed unsalted butter
    1 tbsp coconut oil or MCT oil
    2 tbsp raw cacao powder (or regular cocoa powder)
    1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    dash cinnamon

    Bring the water and coconut milk to a boil a small saucepan.

    Mix boiling liquid with all other ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

    Blend with a blender or hand mixer until frothy.

    Transfer the Bulletproof hot cacao to your favorite mug and drink up!

    Bulletproof Green Tea

    Bulletproof Green Tea


    2-3 teabags organic green tea
    2 tbsp grass-fed unsalted butter
    2 tbsp coconut oil or MCT oil
    1 tbsp heavy cream
    3 cups ice cubes

    Brew your favorite cup of tea using twice the number of teabags.

    Add coconut oil and butter, blending well until frothy.

    Chill the tea in the freezer for a few hours.

    In a blender, add ice cubes and tea.

    Blend for 3-5 minutes, until well incorporated.

    If we started drinking these in the morning would the added ingredients such as cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream stop our morning intermittent fast?

    • Those recipes look yummy! Thanks for sharing. You should check out my post on the Rocket Fuel Latte! I share a similar recipe + 4 simple rules to follow when making our high-fat drinks to make sure we stay in a fasted state. You can read it, here. I hope that helps! :)

  4. Hi Leanne,
    I have been faithfully following ketogenic diet for just over 2 months and still have not gotten into ketosis. I am peri-menopausal and no longer menstruate. I know that the problem is hormonal. Are there any other women who are experiencing the same problem with not getting to ketosis?
    Thankyou, Irene
