Episode 60 - Get Over the Fear of Jumping Into Keto with Leanne Vogel

We have an exciting show for you today as we help you get over the fear of jumping into the ketogenic diet with the Queen of Keto herself, Leanne Vogel!

Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.

Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting hormone replacement therapy she discovered it was stunting her training even more. She went to a naturopath begging for help and that’s where she was introduced to a ketogenic diet.

Episode 4 - Nutritional Ketosis With Dr. Jerome Craig

Today Christa welcomes expert practitioner Dr. Jerome Craig to discuss nutritional Ketosis.

He says many people misunderstand this as being low-carb or high-fat, (and while those are true to some extent) he says nutritional ketosis is more about switching to a state where you’re burning fat as your primary fuel and creating ketones that will fuel the brain and the body.

Many of us lean on carbs as a primary fuel because they’re accessible and fast, but nutritional ketosis is about switching our body...

Common Dietary Plans

Common Dietary Plans

Below you will find a list of common and current dietary plans. It is important to note that fad or quick weight loss diets are a thing of the past. They have not worked and they never will as any gains (or losses for that matter) quickly disappear inevitably with the conclusion of the diet. Another important concept to note is that the word diet can mean a temporary diet, for example, “I am going on a weight loss diet this month.” The word diet also simply describes what a person or animal eats, for example, “a person living in Greece eats a diet of whole foods.” It is this latter concept in which all of these modern dietary plans have in common and that should be the focus of any dietary plan you hopefully will be able to follow long term.  They have their differences, some of which are dramatic and certainly no one diet is perfect for everyone but they are all based on eating whole foods which are naturally dense with nutrition...
