Kickin’ It Keto!

With the various diets I have attempted throughout my life (unfortunately, I started dieting at a young age), I was never able to find a single diet that provided me with lifelong skills needed to properly fuel my body while meeting weight-loss & high energy functioning goals.

In today’s world, there’s always different styles of diets trending. Vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, raw, paleo, no carb, the list goes on and on!

I’m here to share with you the BEST lifestyle program I have experienced the most success with! The best part of this program is that not only have I seen myself greatly succeed, but I have also seen my clientele in my workplace succeed beyond measure!

What is this magical diet I speak of?!

This “diet” was referred to as the Hypoketogenic Diet by Dr. Marshall. He now refers to this as the “Biofield Diet.” I don’t like to refer to this as a diet, where in reality this is more of a lifestyle change. This program has greatly evolved over the past 30 years in a clinical setting with Dr. Marshall, achieving great success along its course.

Remember the days of eating Jiffy peanut butter with mom’s PB&J? Or if you were like me, eating Jiffy by the tablespoons in consecutive sequence! I adopted this “great” habit from my sweet grandma, Lila. To this day, she still does this!

There are so many of us that LOVE to eat all different types of nut butters, or anything that has to do with nuts. “Fancy” nuts, cajun, garlic, even in their simplest form, peanuts in the shell!

Gratefully enough, I’ve come to realize that nuts are actually detrimental to your health, impairing digestion!

Nuts are filled with what are called, Mycotoxins.

You may be telling yourself, “Ooohhh, tell me more about these so called mycotoxins!”

Well, this is exactly why I’m here!

So, what are mycotoxins? 

Mycotoxins are literally toxins produced from fungi that have grown on crops, tree nuts, and can be found in other environmental surroundings, like the air we breathe. Continue reading
