6 Weeks to Weight Loss with KETO

Weight loss easy with keto diet
Elastic was not your friend…

As quarantine lifts, some of us are going have trouble lifting ourselves off the couch, and into clothes that don’t have elastic waistbands. In case you didn’t notice, it shifted from spring to summer while we were in lockdown. Time for cocktails, beach trips, and cute summer outfits. If the thought of shorts and sleeveless shirts freaks you out, I’ve got you covered. Weight loss is easier than you think!

There’s no FASTER shortcut to cuteness than a quick commitment to a KETO lifestyle. In six easy steps, you can be 80% there, which yields most of the benefit, including dramatic weight loss. BTW, don’t be concerned if you lose your appetite at some point… that means it’s working.

Week 1: Get Influenced

You can do this one from your couch, where you’re sitting right now (no judgment). Start following these awesome influencers. They’ll help get you motivated. Of course you can find hundreds of Instagram accounts about Keto, but these are my favs. They’re down to earth, they keep it real, and they have great tips and tricks.

Week 2: Get Rid of Unhealthy Vegetable & Seed oils

These little devils are full of Omega 6 oils which can cause chronic inflammation. The good news is, you can still cook without these, and hardly notice a difference… except you’ll feel amazing. TIP for disposal… tighten the lid and throw them in the trash. DON’T pour them down the sink or give away, unless it’s someone you hate:)

Which oils should you toss? Corn oil, Canola oil, Vegetable oil, Safflower oil, Sunflower oil, Grapeseed oil, Soybean oil, Margarine.

Foods containing plentiful corn oil, canola oil, soybean oil, and other seed oils send Omega-6 (linoleic acid) intake ten- or twentyfold higher than it should be. Such high intakes of Omega-6 fatty acids contribute to inflammation, depression, heart disease risk, and developmental defects in children…

Week 3: Go FULL Fat

Forget everything you’ve heard about fat you eat making you fat. IT’S NOT TRUE. If you don’t believe me, watch this documentary. It exposes the shocking truth about FAT and the people who told us that lie. #MINDBLOWN

Eat these instead…

  • Full Fat Butter, Organic, grass-fed if possible
  • Organic Heavy cream
  • Full Fat Sour cream (if you dig sour cream)
  • Full Fat Cream cheese
  • Organic, full-fat Yogurt (unsweetened)
  • Olives
  • Lard (yes, lard)
  • Beef Jerky
  • MCT Oil (If you’re doing Bullet Proof Coffee)
  • Fatty cuts of meat (Pasture, Organic meats)
  • Pasture-Raised Eggs
  • PURE Olive oil (most in the store is blended with other oils…. jerks)
  • Full fat cheese
  • Nuts
  • Pasture-Raised EGGS
  • Coconut Oil

Week 4: Double Vegetables

Look, I did this with two kids in the house who were not open to ‘KETO’ meals. You can do this, no matter who you have in your house. Whatever you cook or order, double your vegetables and add some delicious fat from the list above. REALLY… it’s that EASY. You can still eat berries, but most other fruits are off-limits for now, since they’re loaded with fructose.

Week 5: Ditch Pasta, Breads & Sugar

Ok, at this point you’re on a roll! I hope you took your time until this point because here’s where you earn your tiny waist! It’s time to break up with bread, pasta, and sugar… like today. Do whatever you need to do to mourn, but it’s done. If you want to know more about WHEAT and why it’s the devil, read this book.

When it comes to sugar, it’s more addictive than cocaine, it wrecks everything. Weight loss is almost impossible when you’re addicted to sugar. Glad we had that talk. Here’s what you’re gonna eat instead of sugar and pasta, my Lovely…

You may experience withdrawal symptoms, also known as the ‘Keto flu’. Since you’re still eating some carbs from rice and potatoes right now, it shouldn’t be that bad. If you do start feeling lousy, add some electrolytes to your diet.

Week 6: Ditch Rice & Potatoes

If you’ve made it to this step you’re serious. You want that long, lean, cute figure. It’s time to get real… rice and potatoes are carbs. They must go. You’re going to substitute them for living your best life complete with shorts, sleeveless tops, and sundresses.

If you love rice, you can eat cauliflower rice instead. Mashed potatoes… again, cauliflower. It’s all in the recipes. You can buy already chopped, fresh or frozen but fresh works best. I know it’s a pain, but it’s for a good cause.

Optional… Monitor your Macros

I’ll admit, I don’t track my ‘macros’ on the Keto diet. I never did other than being mindful that a true Keto diet includes usually less than 20g of carbs per day. Just to give you a benchmark, a single slice a bread of bread or a half-cup of rice is about 20g of carbs. Most of the carbs you can eat should come from berries and vegetables.
