I am so proud to say I have turned on a friend of mine to a ketogenic lifestyle! Although this was a pretty easy transition for me, I feel like this is going to be a challenge for her, not becuase she is not determined but because she has followed a typical “healthy” “eating clean” lifestyle for so long, its hard to change your ways. When I first told her a few items to put on her shopping list her response was, “BACON?!?!, can’t I just used turkey bacon?!” “Am I going to have a heart attack!?!” But as I began to explain the science behind ketosis, I gained her trust that this really works. I’m so excited to watch her go through the body and life transformation I have experienced and am so confident she will succeed! Good luck Kristen, Keep it Keto!

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

If you know me, you know I used to despise drink water. It’s boring, tasteless, and I always thought it made me more hungry! But I’ve found that being in Ketosis your body craves water, and you consume it because you want it, not because you have to. Sometimes I’ll add a few drops of MIO in there to add potassium but I try to keep it clean most of the time. I also found these really interesting facts about water that I though I would share!

1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 30%.

4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
