Anonymous said: Hi Rae! I'm over weight and I would like to try eating Keto. I've looked up recipes, but they all seem too confusing for me. I like how your pinenut salad looks and how some of butterbel's food looks. This might be annoying for you, but do you think you can post some quick, easy Keto friendly meals? This is my last hope. Thank you for your time and I hope I have success like yours some day.
Its important to welcome keto foods into your life and onto your plate. Understand the different types, fat:protein ratio and carb content.
Generally leafy greens are the best but as for veges: Kale, Spinach, Asparagus, Cauliflower (mash) etc
Meats with fat, chicken with skin, dairy if you wish: cheeses, cream, butter
Nuts: Macadamias, brazils
Olive oil, coconut oil, avocado
I honestly don’t use many recipes, I fry most of my food in coconut oil. Check my keto food tab, the foods I eat like I say are fried in coconut oil, I don’t do anything fancy with them
Go into keto having done tonnes of research, read lots of books and check it all out first :-) www.ruled.me is a good recipe site and there are plenty via google :)
Not losing weight? Well did anyone tell you that’s okay?
I’ve been hanging around here along time, some would say like a bad smell, others the opposite. But one thing I have noticed is the pure STRESS that can be caused when a person feels they are doing everything as they should and they don’t seem to be shifting inches or lbs.
I’m a victim of this, I’ll certainly admit to being this way sometimes. ‘I’m not overeating? I’m not undereating? I’m working out? I’m running? I’m eating the right foods?’ yet a month or more will pass and you’ll think that YOU’RE doing something wrong.
This is perpetuated by people who ask a gazillion questions, well are you doing this? that? this? that? and when you answer correctly to their quiz, they look bemused and confused.
Hey, guess what? Sometimes your body just don’t wanna lose weight.
Sometimes stress, can cause our loss to stagnate. You might not be screaming the house down or tearing out your hair but even gradual levels of constant stress can cause our bodies to look at fixing the more important things going on than just do the simple job of shedding fat.
Calories in, calories out is seriously not the be all and end all and please end a conversation immediately if someone says that it is. Our bodies are not calculators, they don’t do sums. They are the most intricate, complicated and incredible machines on the entire planet and to intimate that they are merely just numbers in and numbers out like an excel spreadsheet is an insult to the human race.
When I began to treat my body and my soul as two different beings that somewhat, met in the middle, we got on much better. I let it rest, I force it to work hard, I listen to it, it listens to me, it doesn’t give a shit if I wanna fit into a smaller dress for a specific occasion, it works it’s fucking butt off so that my soul can stay here.
It’s okay to tell someone that just SOMETIMES the body doesn’t want to do what you want it to do, this month, your body just MIGHT NOT WANNA LOSE FAT. It’s stubborn and all but it will at some point do what you want it to do if you work together and listen to one another. Be patient, keep calm and carry on.
