Erin Power returns to Reframe Your Life to talk about the latest diet trend.

Highlights of the episode:

  • Erin talks about the difference between keto/ketosis/ketogenic diets
  • Ketogenic diet is a metabolic state
  • Why you don't want to be in 'ketosis' or 'go keto'
  • The goal is using ketones as a fuel source in your body
  • The end goal is metabolic flexibility
  • Our bodies will adapt to using different fuel sources
  • Having a metabolism that works as intended will change the way you feel
  • Why you don't need to buy urine strips or breath monitors 
  • What your cravings are really telling you
  • You can teach your body to use different fuel sources (metabolic flexibility)
  • When you are following a ketogenic diet you are restricting carbohydrates, not following a high fat diet (you don't need to put butter in your coffee or eat spoonfuls of coconut oil)
  • Reframe your thinking around 'treats' into 'choices or wants'
  • Take time to reduce your carbs. This is a lifestyle change not a diet #ketoeventuallymaybe
  • Carbohydrate intolerance takes a toll on your health (diabetes) lowering your carbohydrate intake is beneficial
