Can You Do KETO and Crossfit? #ketolovescrossfit

Can you do keto and crossfit together? I've seen much debate about this since the rise in popularity of the ketogenic diet. Many contend hotly that a keto diet is NOT a good fit for crossfitters. While others seem to feel that being a fat-burner could be an asset to crossfitters.

Those adamant against mixing keto with crossfit seem to feel carbs are a must for the average cross-fitter. It seems they are convinced that being a sugar-burner is the only way to power through a crossfit workout. 

In fact, many of the people that I have seen trying to do keto and crossfit at the same time are doing so at a much higher carb range, 50-100+ net carbs, than I would consider "keto" (I wonder if they remain in ketosis, I know I wouldn't). Or they are doing a boost of carbs timed around their workouts. Again, often in amounts higher than what I consider keto.

I hear their arguments. Glycogen stores, intensity, blah, blah. But still, I wonder...

It seems to me that keto and crossfit c…

What I Did Over Summer Vacation

Long time no update! A few of you have noticed my absence, so I thought I'd explain. Can you imagine not being able to use your phone for almost 6 months?? Well, that's where I've been...

Odd as it may sound, I'm touch typing this with the screen off and plan to edit it in short sessions. You see, I've been completely off my blog and social media for about 6 months. I haven't been able to use my phone at all. I also have not been able to text, email, blog, facebook, watch Netflix with my kids...anything involving a screen really. I had to take a break. A long one. Not because I wanted to, but because I had to. I've been dealing with some super weird health problems. A severe case of something called Neuro-Ocular Vestibular Dysfunction (NOVD) or "See Sick Syndrome" to be exact. Basically, my vestibular system is completely on the fritz and not communicating properly. Weird stuff makes me feel completely sea sick and I often go into dizzy spells so s…

165 by June 25

I've been keto off and on since I was 25. In that time I've wandered pretty far off of it, but I always find my way back because I know that I know that I know very low carb just works for me. Most recently I have been in ketosis for just over 7 months now. During that time I have been focused mostly on getting my body adapted and making the lifestyle changes to implement keto for the long haul. While I have lost weight and have been tracking my body transformation in pics, I've been mostly focused on healing my body and feeling my best. As I mentioned in this video, going keto was about health for me. In the last 7 months, I've learned a ton about what keto needs to look like for me and I feel like I'm in a really good place with it mentally and physically.

Now that I feel like I have a good handle on keto and making it work in my life, I think I'm ready to get more proactive with my fat loss goals. I feel like I've gotten a lot figured out and feel equipp…

Keto Walmart Haul

What do you buy at Walmart when you're keto? What's on my Walmart keto shopping list? Today I'm going to answer those questions with a video. An epic keto Walmart haul! 

Our weekly grocery shopping trip this week was at Walmart. I must confess that I used to be such a Walmart snob, but not anymore. Walmart has become our go-to for tons of ketogenic diet foods, from staples to snacks. They really do carry everything you need.

The yummy keto eats we picked up at Walmart this week:

KETO Pre-Workout

Raise your hand if you remember the golden age of pre-workouts! Oh, what a time. We guzzled fluorescent, artificial ingredient galore, chemical concoctions filled to the brim with now-banned ingredients. Good times. Good times.

Then, we had to go all hippie chick crunchy naturaified and start to care about what we put in our bodies. Sheesh.

Just me? 

Not going to lie, there have been many a workout that I've missed those chemicaltini pre-workouts. Buuuuuut, they really were full of junk. So, I have been on a search for a more natural pre-workout for ages. I just plain missed a pre-workout, but everything I tried fell short in one way or another. Until...

I take this mostly before weight-lifting workouts, but sometimes before cardio just for that little boost. Especially when I'm struggling with motivation. I mix it the night before and just knowing it's waiting for me in the fridge somehow gives that little extra mental edge to just do that workout. Hey, whatever works.

I love …

December Keto Monthly Favorites

Happy New Year! I am really excited to turn the new page of 2018, how about you? I was going to do a goals post, but to be honest, I'm so busy WERKING on my latest goals that I haven't taken the time to write that post. How about more show, less tellwith my goals this year?? Instead...

Let's chat monthly favorites, shall we? Today I'm sharing what I found myself loving and returning to over and over for the month of December. Mostly keto diet related products, but there's a new small appliance obsession or two and a little random nail polish love in there too.

Kiss My Keto Collagen Powder - At the time I'm posting it they're currently sold out! I also love the Great Lakes Collagen and Kiss My Keto also has a Marine Collagen Powder. Hopefully, the one I use will be back in stock soon!

Kiss My Keto MCT Powder- Love. Mad love. Highly recommend this. It's a constant on my Amazon Subscribe because I use it so much! I have over 5 items on my monthly Subscribe an…

How to Make KETO COFFEE - Easy Keto Diet Coffee Recipe

Today I want to share with you how to make KETO COFFEE! If you are looking for an easy, everyday ketogenic diet coffee recipe, you're going to love this one. It's what I have in my coffee every day. Not only is it keto, but it's a Bulletproof Keto Coffee, so easy, and only 3 ingredients! Plus, it has virtually perfect keto macros and I have to say is so much better than recipes using Oils, blech. Bonus, this recipe is also DAIRY FREE!

If you've struggled with MCT oils in bulletproof coffee recipes in the past, I find using MCT powder gives all the great MCT fats to boost energy and focus, with none of the MCT oil side effects!

If you don't have a frother, you could use a blender, but I really recommend getting one. Using a frother will give your keto coffee an amazing, frothy, keto latte-like foam as well as mix the ingredients thoroughly. Simply stirring with a spoon will be a mess. Frothers are super cheap and handy. I can't do without my frother! I've th…

What is KETO?

Below are my experiences and opinions on keto. I am not a healthcare professional.

What is this keto thing? It seems to be all over the place these days. Everywhere you look you see new YouTube channels, Instagram accounts, blogs, books, recipes, supplement companies, and classes popping up. It seems to be all keto all the time. But, what is keto? 

If you've been curious about this new keto trend, you're in the right place! In this in-depth guide, I will answer all your questions about all things keto.

What is keto?
Keto is simply short for the keto diet, which is short for the ketogenic diet. They all mean basically the same thing. I will use them interchangeably throughout this blog post.

A ketogenic diet, or keto as I refer to it, is a high fat, moderate protein, very low carb eating approach. Through eating this way consistently your body will get into a state referred to as nutritional ketosis. Once adapted to the keto approach in this way, your body will begin to use ketones …
