Keto Hot Seat: Significant Other Not On Board, Intuitive Keto, Wine On Keto, Counting Veggies As Carbs — #051

by | Jun 1, 2018 | ketoforwomen

We have a fresh new batch of questions to start this round of Keto Hot Seat episodes. Are you ready to get through them? Let’s dive in!

Keto Hot Seat questions answered in this episode:

  • What are your thoughts on castor oil packs for detoxifying the liver?
  • How can you maintain a keto lifestyle when your spouse/significant other is not on board?
  • What does it mean when you change your diet and later you notice some changes in your cycle?
  • How does one eat intuitively when they’re cooking for a family that still wants and needs three meals a day, meal planning for a time, and budgeting is absolutely necessary?
  • Does electrolyte and mineral deficiency cause keto “stink”? Why do some people get it and some don’t?
  • Does drinking a glass of wine bump you out of ketosis? How much alcohol is okay to drink when you’re on keto?
  • Can vegans be keto?
  • What are the ratios of electrolytes we need and which supplements do you recommend?
  • What are some of the hormonal changes and symptoms you might experience as your hormones level out when you have PCOS and have been doing keto for a few months?
  • How can a keto diet assist with cognitive symptoms of depressions like negative thinking, difficulty concentrating, distractibility, indecisiveness, etc?
  • Do carbs from veggies count towards your total carb count?
  • Can intermittent fasting cause silent reflux?

Key Takeaways:

  • Changing your diet causes stress on your body, and when your body is stressed, it takes a toll on your hormones and it will show up in changes in your cycle.
  • Food intake is one of the biggest stressors on the body because the body needs nourishment. As soon as it’s not getting the nourishment that it needs or that it’s used to, it gets stressed out.
  • We all have different electrolyte levels in our bodies and they all need to be in balance with each other and with what you do.

Action Steps:

  • Take the time to prep your body before using castor oil packs to detoxify.
  • If your spouse/significant other is not on board with keto, find support elsewhere.
  • Get into the habit of intuitive eating as much of the time as you can.
  • If you have a stronger body odor than normal or maybe have stinky feet, raise your magnesium levels and electrolyte levels in general and drink more water overall.
  • Take away any feelings of restriction you might have when doing keto, otherwise, you won’t be able to sustain it.


The next thing coming up for me will be the KetoCon in Austin, Texas on June 15th to 17th, where I will be speaking about finding your own version of keto. If you happen to be there, please come and find me. I would love to meet all of you in person!

Today is the first day that you can join The Fat Burning Female Self-Study Class. If you feel that you’re not quite ready yet to take on The Fat Burning Female Project but still want to learn more about keto, then this self-study class would be a good option for you. It will be an ongoing enrolment so you can join anytime you’re ready.

As always, if you have any questions that you would like for me to answer in future Keto Hot Seat episodes, be on the lookout for the next Keto Hot Seat call for questions on Facebook and Instagram. However, if you’re someone who doesn’t do social media, you can still email me your questions at with “Keto Hot Seat” as your headline and I will make sure to get the answers out to you. 

Take care!

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
