I’m so excited to be preparing for the biggest cleanse/detox of my life!
I’ve tested out a new product and within 48 hrs I dropped 3 lbs!
I had the best energy and mental alertness of my life and I slept like a baby!
Not bad for someone with ‘Chronic Fatigue’, ‘Brain Fog’ and who is normally kept up at night due to mis-regulated adrenaline production from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Now a super cleanse and a months worth of the product is due any day – Eek!!
As you know I believe it is of paramount importance to ensure that we all (people and pets) get sufficient, bio-available, quantities of all 90 essential nutrients daily. This is something I’m highly passionate about and will never be swayed otherwise on, but what about energy and fat loss?
I seem to have discovered the answer…
Most people have heard of a ‘Ketogenic Diet’ and upon further investigation discovered that it can be highly complex, can take months to achieve ‘ketogensis’ (natural fat burning), that there’s something really horrible called ‘Keto Flu’ that everyone goes through and that you’ve only got to look at your ‘favorite foods’ to get kicked out of Ketosis and have to start again.
That’s what I discovered last year. I tried it (well a lazy version) again and again and failed over and over. I only reached ‘natural ketosis’ once in all that time, I cheated most weekends and eventually daily. I found it incredibly hard, although I knew it was what is best for me, I simply couldn’t resist those carbs.
On the plus side, I did go down a jeans size, which is quite amazing when you think about it, but honestly I was going to bed at the same time as my toddler as I was completely exhausted and my energy for the day was pretty much completely gone by 3 pm.
Well I’m happy to say, that is no longer the case.
Following a simple routine of a ‘Protein Shake’ in the morning with my full days nutritional supplementation, a balanced lunch (ketogenic), a delay long enough to let that go down and then a drink that contains ‘the magic formula’, followed by fasting until the next morning I can satiate my hunger, easily get into ketosis without feeling the need to snack, skip ‘Keto Flu’ and not have any carb cravings!
I’ve also had to start adding a belt to those jeans that I bought last year.
Can’t wait for the full Reboot: looking forward to seeing my fat drop, whilst maintaining muscle, and watching energy levels, clarity of mind and sleep soar!
