Your Keto Journey – YOUR VOCABULARY IS IMPORTANT!

diet meanings 1

I have thought long and hard about the word DIET. The word diet has many social connotations. It may suggest you are fat or lazy. It could imply that you are trying to limit your food intake. It might seem as if you were getting yourself involved in yet another “possible-solution-to-a-problem“ you have.  Learn more in today’s "Your Keto Journey"© post.

Your Keto Journey – If it's Not the Atkins diet, what is it really?

Its what you learn after you know it all that counts JW

For those of you who don’t know him, John Wooden was an American basketball player and later head basketball coach at UCLA University.  

John was just four months and 10 days short of 100 years old when he died.  

John’s teams have won more NCAA Division I Championships than any other school.  John won 10 of them with his teams.  

In 1934 as a high school teacher in South Bend, Indiana, John Wooden defined success as “peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you’re capable.“

I agree with John that if we want to succeed at something, we must know we made the effort to do the best we are capable of doing.

Part of that effort is educating your self on the things you are doing. This also applies to Your Keto Journey.

Your Keto Journey – What is your KCL Number?

KCL number capture

Hello Keto Friends and Family.

When you first began your Keto diet, you learned that your body operates more efficiently and profitably by burning fat rather than sugar as its fuel.  70% healthy oils, 15% proteins and 15% carbs.

In the beginning you saw how you needed a starting point for carb intake.  So you started out at 20 grams of carbs per day.

The nay sayers out there will tell you that this way of eating is not sustainable.

I disagree – and here is why.

Your Keto Journey – The scale didn’t move!

scale and tape Capture

Good Morning Keto Friends.

Let’s talk about those weeks where you get on the scale, only to see that you haven’t lost any weight.

YES, this can feel exasperating!!!  You’ve cut back on your sugars and carbohydrates.  You’ve given up some of your favorite comfort foods. 

In fact, you are eating way different than you used to eat.  Much better.  And you are following the program!

Yet the pounds are not dropping the way they first did when you got on the Keto diet.

What’s a body to do?

Give up? NO!

Go back to eating the way you used to eat?  Never!

Your Keto Journey – The Versatile Chicken

chicken for keto blog

Good morning my precious fellow Keto-ers!
When I say to you “chicken” what do you think?
Some will say chicken sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich or even chicken tenders.
When we begin our Keto journey, we are no longer eating breads, grains, pasta, potatoes, starches, corn, rice, oats and cereals. So we must learn to be more creative in our meal planning.
So let’s look at our versatile chicken.

Featured Book:

  • JOA cover 2

    Journal of an Opioid Addict: A Letter to Mom and Dad

    Book two in the Conversations You Hear Series

    Many people have addictions.  Some addictions are easily seen and noticed by others.  Other addictions are hidden for years, if not decades, and are not seen or noticed by others until the person with the addiction admits two things.

     First that an addiction exists.  And second, that it is nearly impossible to kill an addiction without the loving help of other people who are willing to do whatever it takes to help the addict bury the addiction and live without it.

     This is the story of a young woman who prefers to remain anonymous.  She does this for personal reasons.  She speaks from her heart and does not wish to be judged by you, the reader.

     The young woman has made a commitment to herself and also toward others who find themselves in this humbling place of hurting oneself and not really understanding why until you come out the other side of your addiction and take a long, hard look back.  Looking back is not a way to blame others for what happened to you as much as it is recognition of why you made the choices that you did.

     Many times a young person makes choices based on fear.  Fear of the unknown.  Fear of the known.  Fear of what you think you know.  Medical professionals trained in this area of study understand that fear is irrational.  A perceived danger or threat.  Frightening facts or evidence that appear real.

     A person’s response to fear varies.  One of these response variations is an addiction.  An addiction as described by a young person, untrained in the fields of medicine, psychology or psychiatry could be described as “something I do to keep my fear at bay”.

     A young person living in fear often will not be able to clearly state his or her feelings.  He or she simply knows that there is something that is bothering them on a regular basis that needs to be taken care of.  So they experiment.  They try things to make themselves feel better.  More secure.  Protected from danger.

     Once he or she finds what “works” for them, they use this behavior as a way to get free of their problem.  Notice the words “free” and “their problem”.  Yes, this is a very personal event for many young people.  It is their way of dealing with a problem that they have.  They know no other way of curtailing the situation.  So as long as the addiction works for them, they will continue the course of action.

     Fear comes in many shapes and forms.  This young woman’s fear came from growing up in what many would call a “normal family atmosphere”.  Only to some children, what is called normal by others is far from normal for her.

     As listeners, conversations have a way of awakening our senses.  When we listen to the conversations of others, we have been granted access into another person’s very personal view of a topic.  Be that view right or wrong, it is important to hear what the person has to say.  If we desire to lovingly help people, especially young people, then it is important that we listen to the “cry” of their heart.  Without judgment.  Without interruption.  Just listen.  Listening is the first step.
