Did you try Keto only to feel betrayed?  Maybe you had success initially then the weight loss stopped. Maybe it was too difficult with all the crazy rules, macro counting, app tracking, intermittent fasting, etc. and it was producing small results.  Maybe the “rules” depending on where you got your advice, was confusing and conflicting.

It is all too easy to get caught up in the specific rules of “One Size Fits All Keto”. If you follow the rules exactly and it doesn’t work, then you feel like you’ve done something wrong. Like you failed….one more time.   I’ve seen hundreds of women try Keto and not get the results they expected or end up frustrated and confused.  Sadly, they gave up.  They simply didn’t know where to turn or how to start over differently.  It wasn’t their fault.

Realistically, if there was a one-size-fits-all-formula wouldn’t everyone on Keto be successful?! Hmmm… I can tell you that isn’t happening. In fact, contrary to the popular belief, there are ways to get better results with less strict clean-eating Keto.


Are You Ready to Save Yourself from the Clutches of Strict Keto and Do it Your Way?

There is an unconventional Keto method that is a unique protocol customized for each person called “Intuitive Keto”.  It’s simple and doesn’t involve counting every macro or calories.  It takes into account the whole person and it’s designed for the everyday average woman with a career, a busy lifestyle, and a social life. You can do Keto Your Way.  However, women have important questions weighing on their mind before they are ready for a “do-over” with Keto.

How can I do Keto and make it fit into my lifestyle?

How do I do Keto when I go out to eat often, or don’t cook much?

How do I do Keto if I don’t have the time to prep foods? 

How do I do Keto when I have certain foods I crave and don’t feel like I can give up?

How do I do Keto if I love desserts or savory salty snacks?

How I do Keto if I’m a foodie and my live revolves around delicious foods?

These are all great questions and real concerns. Keto has to work for you and be customized to your body, your lifestyle and your body chemistry. 

What if You Try it Differently?

What if you gave Keto another try but did it differently?  What if you eased into it by simply cutting back on sugar and carbs in the form of breads, rice, potatoes, pasta, and crackers for 3 days?  What if you limited your fruit to berries and avocado?  What if you ate unlimited veggies and protein (meat, cheese, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese) until you are full? I’ve seen women crash and burn too fast because they jumped into Keto going 100 mph.  The body needs time to adjust.  Then after doing this for 3 days try not snacking between meals for 4 days.  Why no snacking?  Every time you eat, you raise insulin which causes weight gain when the cells absorb too much glucose and the body converts it into fat. Not snacking between meals is one of the best things you can do for your body.  After doing this for a week, then consider hiring a Keto Coach to partner with you to create a sustainable Keto program that works for you to fast track your weight loss. 

If you are discouraged about Keto, have fear or doubt about trying it again, I encourage you to take that first step and explore Intuitive Keto.  With Intuitive Keto you will lose weight, eat delicious foods, throw calorie counting out the window, have more energy, get healthy, and enjoy not being hungry all the time.  Plus, you can actually eat Keto and still be a foodie! Who knew? There are delicious recipes for cheesecake, muffins, breads, cakes, cookies and all the foods you think you have to give up!

There is hope. Don’t give up on Keto just yet. Think seriously about taking Keto back into your life and giving it a second chance.
