Keto for women is different: we have different hormone cycles, different environmental stressors, and different needs for our low carb experience. Acknowledging that women’s health differs from men’s health, especially when it comes to intermittent fasting and other ketogenic practices, is the first step — but what about some actionable steps to take your experience as a low carb keto lady to the next level?
We rely on hormones as little messengers that carry signals for various functions within the body. Keto can help to balance your hormones so that your body can better understand when to store body fat, or when to trigger a stress response after an injury to help with healing. Keeping your hormones balanced is essential…
Hormone health is possibly the biggest factor in determining your overall health, because your hormones control so many of your body’s essential processes. When our hormones are off or imbalanced, it can result in minor symptoms, like brain fog, or major issues, like chronic pain and disease.
Keto can be such an amazing option for those struggling with the blood sugar rollercoaster, but what about diabetics? And what about ketoacidosis?! We’re chatting about all of the benefits (and possible obstacles) for keto diabetics. Everyone can benefit from learning about their own unique bodies and needs, and we should all feel empowered to make informed decisions about our healthcare.
I’ve become a pro at breaking the keto rules and that rule-breaking is what helped me understand what works best for me and my body. If the typical keto diet rules don’t work for you, and you find yourself falling off the keto wagon, this episode is for you!
When starting keto, it can be so tempting to want to know exactly what to do to find keto success: what food to eat, what keto products to buy (or not buy!), whether to carb up or not (and when!). If you’re a keto beginner, you’ve got to find out what works for you, even if that differs from everyone else’s keto approach.
I’ve talked to so many women who started a ketogenic journey for one reason or the other, often for weight loss, and what happened is that the obstacles they faced on keto showed them that there is more to life than weight loss or stressing about what to eat. Keto can be that catalyst that opens the door for all kinds of awesome healing, you just have to be willing to embrace the struggles that come with the process.
