WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR HAS MADE

Nov 25, 2018

A year ago I felt like crap!
I don't know how else to describe it except like that!
I thought what I was doing was the best thing for me, until I realized I wasnt showing up for life, my family or myself as my best!
Something had to give. Something had to change.

So I did some research.
I sent out some texts.
I got on a couple calls.
I opened up my stubborn heart and head and learned about the benefits of ketones and ketosis and well, the rest is history!

I feel better than I have in YEARS!
I feel younger, I have more clarity, I no longer have brain fog, I sleep soooo well and wake up rested, my body functions better and my brain is awake- which didn't happen with all the shakes, bars, supplements or workouts I was doing before!

Since drinking ketones by Pruvit I have experienced benefits like: 

  • Better sleep!!!! Wow I struggled so much for years. I had sleepless nights, nights that were interrupted multiple times, nights when I would sweat like I was working out while I slept...

5 Ways To Be a More MINDFUL SNACKER

Nov 19, 2018
Oh snacking!
 
One day we are told to have a couple snacks a day and the next we are told that snacking is bad. It’s a little confusing right? What I have discovered recently is that if we do it incorrectly we can have gut issues, weight gain, insulin resistance and more. As we know with diets, there isn’t really a one size fits all approach or answer but the term food is medicine is true.
 
With that said, here are 5 ways to help you become more aware of your snacking so you can you get lean, feel better, avoid overeating & heal your gut!
 
1. Beware of food additives and sensitivities.
Yes, gluten, dairy, and soy are big offenders- but the biggest snacking obstacle for most people is SUGAR- in all its many forms, including "healthy" sugars like agave or honey. Why is sugar so problematic? It contributes to mood swings, including depression and irritability, PMS symptoms, migraines, body aches and pains, chronic diseases like diabetes and heart...

BENEFITS OF KETO, KETONES & KETOSIS

Nov 15, 2018
I always smile when someone says that the keto diet or the keto lifestyle is a new thing or even a fad because its actually been around at least since the 1920’s, not as a fat burning/ weight loss tool but as therapeutic method for managing epilepsy and other neurological seizure disorders. Cool right?
 
In more recent times, a growing number of studies show that the ketogenic diet and now the use of exogenous ketones have many other health benefits from slowing the growth of cancer to helping with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease!!!!! Both are also helpful in managing diabetes and other metabolic disorders!!
 
A lower carb, higher fat and moderate protein diet and ketones are good not just for the BODY but also the BRAIN! Aaahh, I love that we are just starting to scratch the surface on all of the illnesses and complaints that may be managed with ketogenic diets and pure therapeutic ketones/ exogenous ketones!

HOW TO KEEP KETO SIMPLE

Nov 15, 2018
A ketogenic diet might seem overwhelming if you’re just starting out, but don’t worry- i get it- i was there big time but trust me the more you learn, the easier it gets—and thankfully, it can actually be quite simple from there. Whether you’re on a budget or just feeling overwhelmed and need it simplified so you have success OR if you want to do more of a "keto-ish" diet/ " lazy keto", there are several ways that you can keep it simple on a keto diet!
 
First, let’s talk for a second about what eating keto really means.
 
Basics of the Keto Diet
The purpose of the ketogenic diet is to put the body into a state of ketosis: burning fat for energy rather than burning carbs. Ketosis is the sweet spot for the body. It can help you burn fat, drop weight, prevent brain fog, sleep better, and a host of other benefits!
 
In order to induce ketosis in the body, we must either 1) be starving so that the body turns to fat stores for energy or 2) be...

TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR KETO MAX & KETO NAT

Nov 15, 2018
The wonderful thing about taking exogenous ketones via Keto MAX &  Keto NAT is that you can experience the benefits of ketones without diet modification. Yep! It’s true!
 
You don’t have to follow a totally strict ketogenic diet when you drink pure therapeutic ketones! Even those who don’t change a thing, will still experience the benefits. However, it is encouraged that you slowly begin to follow a lower carbohydrate diet, and enhance your body’s ability to utilize- in fact when you drink ketones you will most likely experience less hunger and want to eat real food- that is what happened to me and many others.
 
Here are some simple steps to get you on the right track so you can experience BETTER with ketones in your body: 
 
1- Take 1-2 servings of Keto Max or Keto NAT day!
If you take two a day, take the first between 6-9am and then second around 1-4pm. If you take one a day, take it around 10 or 11 am. And drink it over a...
