Certified Ketogenic Lifestyle Coach
In January of 2017, I started my keto journey. I looked into finding a keto coach, to no avail. I joined several keto Facebook groups, and buried my nose in books. Shortly after,
I created my own keto Facebook group, KETO INCOGNITO
It's a group for women only. I want my members to feel most comfortable sharing, within a private group of ladies. The ladies are not only helpful with others, but also very supportive of one another. They have become a second family to me.
We currently have close to 4k members and are growing daily.
Within the first month of living la vida keto, I learned a lot of new information and started to apply it to my (WOL) way of life.
There were a lot of things that I already had knew, such as carbs, insulin, and ketones. (nutritional ketosis and diabetic ketoacidosis are not the same)
I've been counting carbs, reading ingredients, and testing ketone levels, for the last 16 years. I've been dosing insulin, correcting blood glucose and playing the role as a pancreas... A pancreas!? Yes, for my daughter who was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes at 1 years old, and with Celiac Disease at 2 years old (as why I also pay attention to detail, of ingredients.)
I would consider myself an expert, in the world of Type 1 Diabetes, and I would also consider myself patient, nurturing and VERY sleep deprived...<<sigh>> But we do what we need to do for our loved ones, especially when it could be a life or death situation.
With the many years of lost sleep, extreme stress, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalance, meds and frequent illnesses, my metabolism slowed, and the weight gain came along for the ride.
I walked around like a mombie! (a zombie mom) I had no energy, I had no focus, and my body was screaming for help.
Shortly after starting keto, not only did the weight come off quickly, (16 pounds in the first four weeks) but I also noticed a change in other ways, than the physical. I had increased energy levels (man, i could just keep on going, even on such limited sleep) My mental clarity greatly improved - I was more focused, alert and in tune..My health greatly improved as well!
I no longer needed to take certain meds, and I found myself no longer taking weekly trips to the doctor's office (it was always something!) AH-mazing!
As time moved on, my confidence had regained. It was great to just grab an outfit out of the closet, and not stress about how it would look.
Feeling healthy, and "new" is GREAT!
As my life improved, I wanted to help others as well. I took my "new" life into a new phase, and became a Certified Ketogenic Lifestyle Coach. It is in my nature, to help those who are in need of a helping hand. I personally believe that anyone with drive, could practice a ketogenic lifestyle and successfully succeed, with the help from someone not only certified like myself, but from someone who also has personal experience.
Losing weight is great, but "healing" and living a healthy way of life is MUCH better!
I offer keto coaching in-person and with virtual clients world-wide. I not only break down the ketogenic diet into easy actionable steps, but I give my clients the support and accountability they need to achieve their desired results.
As a Certified Ketogenic Lifestyle Coach, I specialize in helping my clients, navigate this new way of eating by providing one on one coaching with a customized plan specific to their goals. Whether they are looking to lose weight or for better health, I educate, support and coach them, on how to achieve their goals while following a Ketogenic diet.
I provide personalized macro plans and sample macro meal ideas to hit their macro goals. I also provide my clients with all the necessary information and tools to get them started with their new life change.
All of this combined with the accountability of reporting to me as their coach, sets them up for great success.
As a keto lifestyle coach, my goal is to empower you with all the tools and information necessary to make this way of eating work for you, incorporate fitness, and adopt the mindset so you can confidently reach your optimum level of whole body health. I will coach you through the process until you have reached your goals and you are confident that you can continue on your own.
I will provide you with all the mentorship, support and accountability you need to help you figure out the important things you should be doing differently, and troubleshoot all the inevitable challenges and difficulties that will come up along the way.
If you've never tried following a Ketogenic diet, or are finding it hard to follow it on your own, or it's difficult to stay on track.... you may benefit from one on one coaching, or my KETO 101 seven week program.
