Showing you how to navigate your cravings by understanding that many food cravings are based in denying ourselves specific nutrients, a lack of balance in the body, or a sign we need to eat more. Of all the topics under the “how do I do keto the right way” sun, are the challenges we can…

When I think about all that can change in 9 months, it’s pretty amazing — 9 months is exactly how long it took me to get my period back, and 9 months is exactly how long it took me to write The Keto Diet Cookbook. I feel like I’ve grown so much in such a short amount of time; when I started writing my second and third paperback books 9 months ago, it was so important to include feedback from readers and listeners (like you!) to help create something that could really help people. I wanted people to feel empowered and ready to embrace change.
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?
Over the years, I’ve talked to a lot of women about their keto experiences and helped them troubleshoot their keto problems to find what works best for them. Recently, a new keto side effect has been making a buzz on the internet: keto crotch. Making changes to your diet can cause a noticeable change in body odor, but can going keto really affect your vaginal health, and is keto crotch really something you should be concerned about?
When I first started keto, I needed a way to know if I was doing it “right” — since I had never been aware of exactly what ketosis felt like in my body before, I wasn’t able to recognize the signs. Tracking my macros and getting to know which foods were more carb dense helped me better grasp what to eat to feel my best on keto, but I knew there had to be more to keto than macro tracking with MyFitnessPal and figuring out the difference between total carbs and net carbs.
The idea of consuming a diet of mostly fat after so many years of eating low fat can be a bit terrifying, right? I mean, the dogma of fat fear is drilled into us: from doctors to food labels, magazines, and health resources everywhere. Fat is bad! So how can keto be good?!
One thing I love about keto is how easy it is to adapt to fit an individual’s needs. Whether you’re doing keto for weight loss, overall health benefits, or specific goals like fertility, there are tons of adjustments you can make to really find what works best in your body.
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…
When I first started working on my relationship with my body, the whole concept of “just love yourself!” was WAY intimidating and not accessible to me. I want women to feel okay with not feeling okay, and encouraged to take that first step, wherever you are.
