by | Apr 16, 2018 | ketoforwomen

You may have been doing the ketogenic diet for a while now, but are you keto-adapted? What difference does keto-adaptation make? Vivica Menegaz joins me in the show to talk about all these and more!

In this episode you will learn:

  • What it means to be keto-adapted and what are its benefits
  • The value of keto-adaptation and how we apply it in our modern lives
  • The difference that keto-adaptation brings to your body
  • The different players involved in metabolism and understanding its complexity
  • What are the different aspects we need to consider when doing keto for women?
  • The foundation upon which the ketogenic lifestyle rests
  • What is the quick fix mentality and what are the problems that result from it

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s not always easy to get keto-adapted, it depends on a number of factors such as your metabolic profile, your insulin resistance, your liver’s ability to convert fats into ketones, etc.
  • Less than 20% of the people who are doing the ketogenic diet now are able to reach a satisfactory state of keto-adaptation.
  • The first thing we need to address, when it comes to achieving weight loss, for example, is toxicity.
  • Ketosis and keto-adaptation are part of our natural physical genetic code.
  • Ketosis was not invented by nature for us to lose weight. It was invented to keep us alive.
  • It is perfectly natural to go in and out of ketosis. It is part of the natural state of well-being.
  • Keto can be done in many ways. There are different ways for different people of different ages and different lifestyles.

Action Steps:

  • Take whatever you read, especially when it’s labeled scientific research, with a grain of salt. It’s not necessarily true.
  • When it comes to doing the ketogenic diet, don’t be afraid to be your own experiment and see how things go for you.
  • Embrace a more holistic perspective on what healing really means. What does it take to be healthy and live healthy in your mind and in your body?
  • Take responsibility for your own health and well-being. This is the first step in the ketogenic journey.
  • Bring mindfulness and awareness to everything you do, especially eating.
  • Be loving and compassionate to yourself and have a true support system among women.

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.
