🤔Calories in vs. calories out isn't the only way to lose fat!!😲 ... ❌I know many will diasgree but listen, I'm not saying that you can't lose weight📉 by being in calorie deficit (of course you will, the question is how long you manage to stick to it before you start eating again). But we weren't born to count calories, right? 💁🙌 ... ✔Easier, healthier and more effective way is to OPTIMISE YOUR HORMONE FUNCTION. And I'm not talking about steroids here, mainly I mean insulin, glucagon, cortisol and other hormones that are responsible for our health and storing fat. ... ⚠Your diet shouldn't be about avoiding food and starving. In the end of the day, food is here to be used as energy!💪🔌 And if you hack your hormones, you allow your body to actually use it as an energy source instead of teaching it to store it for another (more hungry) time.🙏 ... 📩(keto, Bulletproof, anti-aging) meal plans 💻online coaching
Reading this book right now, among others 📚 🤔( Anyone else that reads multiple books at the same time? I view books as courses. Just as when you attend college courses for example, you study multiple subjects simultaneously, i firmly believe one can read multiple books simultaneously!) This book discusses the topic of #autophagy , which is basically a health hack to longevity! Who doesn’t want to live a healthy long life?!! ❤️ #longevity #naomiwhittel #health #healthylifestyle #healthhacks #glow15 #livelinger #livehealthy

Plateau got me trying something new. It’s basically keto but with alternating high and low protein days. She also has a cool focus on autophagy in her recipes which aid in gentling the aging process. Easy read, tons of clean keto recipes, & a 15-day plan I’m going to follow to hopefully get over this plateau! #glow15 #naomiwhittel #foodsatgram #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #lowcarblifestyle #lowcarbliving #keto #ketolifestyle #ketoforlife #sugarkills #sugarless #youresweetetnoughwithoutsugar #nutrients #allnaturaldiet #earthfood #cavemandiet #nutrition #eatyourcolors #healthy #health #hearthealth #realfood #eatclean #eatingclean
Losing or managing weight is hard work that deserves praise. As we age, we start to lose two of our best fat-fighting allies—lean muscle and metabolism—the amount of effort we put in can feel disproportionate to the speed of results. And if you’re a woman over 50, or even in your 40s, who is trying to lose weight, the struggle to shed pounds can reach a whole new dimension. . The latest issue of Woman’s World Magazine highlights a food that can transform your diet and triple your metabolism… Simply GOODFATS Creamy MCT oil. And with keto’s soaring popularity, MCT oil has become one of the most popular health foods for its ability to quickly convert fat into fuel that sparks mental focus and energy. And my new Creamy MCT’s unique creamy suspension allows the body to absorb it even more efficiently. . The article titled “Losing Weight for Women Over 50,” the cover story reads like a breath of fresh air if you’re in this age group—it’s an acknowledgment of your unique experience and a reminder that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to weight loss. .

We are all very unique. When following any dietary protocol, we need to remember we all have specialized needs that cannot be addressed with a broad stroke of a certain diet. ⁣ -⁣ That’s not to say, we don’t recommend or utilize some of these diets. Some of these diets are excellent choices and provide you with a great starting point. ⁣ -⁣ Our goal at CTF Wellness is to get people invested in their health and to become their own dietary detectives who constantly analyze and adjust certain foods, macronutrients and meal times. We want individuals to pay close attention to what their body is telling them and to follow its own wisdom.⁣ -⁣ #ctfwellness #healthcoach

Soups and stews are beneficial any time of the year! But, there’s nothing more nourishing than receiving a bowl of homemade chicken soup from a loved one when you’re in bed with a cold or recovering from a high stress event such as giving birth, the passing of a loved one or even positive life events such as a wedding or milestone event. When you’re the caretaker and making that delicious healing soup for a friend or family member, it feels so good to be useful in this way, knowing that all your love and affection for this person is going into this soup to help them get better. . Consuming healing soups and stews allows your body to conserve some of the resources it would normally spend on the digestion of raw and less easily digestible foods, and instead uses them for healing and repair. .

Autophagy - To eat thyself⁣ -⁣ Autophagy is possibly a word you never heard before and in health circles it’s a hot topic. ⁣ -⁣ Autophagy is a natural process that our body uses to eliminate damaged cell parts and recycle them into newer ones. This has huge implications in the field of cancer and healthcare overall. ⁣ -⁣ Lack of autophagy can lead to an over abundance of damage cells, which in turn can lead to cancer and other health complications. ⁣ -⁣ You may not also know that the ketogenic diet is closely intertwined with autophagy. Autophagy is increased in the absence of protein and carbohydrates, which are two key components to the ketogenic diet. ⁣ -⁣ While the ketogenic diet is mostly described as a moderate protein diet, there seems to be many more benefits from mixing in low protein on certain days. This is described wonderfully in the Glow 15 book by @naomiwhittel Check it out! 📚
I prefer the word rejuvenation to ANTI-AGING! It sounds gentler. The word ANTI is mostly related to horrible things in the world. This book however is gold for female health, weight and skin. There are so many insights that I will share bit by bit as I read along. Basically the way I eat, exercise and care for my skin today comes very close to what @naomiwhittel writes in this book. #glow15 #womenshealth #mustread
I find it so inspiring that throughout the world, fasting is practiced for spiritual and religious purposes as a way to refocus the mind and body, sometimes even fasting for 24 hours or more. But for many of us who only think of fasting right before a lab test or procedure, the thought of depriving the body of food may be a challenge we’re unwilling to take. . I have used Fasting as the key tool in my toolbox for 25 years to help calm and reduce the inflammation in my body. Fasting is such a beautiful process and does so much including boosting our keto lifestyle. It is nature’s reset button, and can have a dramatic, and positive effect on the youth inside of each of our cells. There are critical processes that only happen during periods of fasting, which can improve digestion, skin, immune health, and activate stem cells to support longevity. .

This is a must have in my home rn. The idea came from @drstevengundry in his #plantparadox book. Since I try very hard to lead a #smartnutrition for me life, his book has inspired me to make even better choices to keep chronic illnesses at bay. I use food as medicine and believe it will help me to avoid what his book is intended to treat. I may not have autoimmune disorders like several of his readers but I don’t want them either. So healthy gut, low carb, no added sugar and low lectin is my current guide even tho I’m not perfect at it AND I enjoy the occasional treat when I can. Anyway: in this pic you see the #BlackCherry #balsamic from our local @harvestoilandvinegar store and the Dark Morello Cherry Pomegranate @sanpellegrino_official YOU choose your recipe according to your tastebuds. I love the stronger flavor so there are several tsp of vinegar (let’s be real: a few tbsp) over ice with a full can of the sparkling #mineralwater . You just can’t go wrong with this! This is meant to be a soda substitute but I’m not really a big soda fan so this helps me to satiate my sweet tooth that hits after lunch 😉 How many calories? IDK. whatever is in the balsamic since the water is calorie free

MYTH: you can’t cook with olive oil. That is 100% false! The RIGHT kind of extra virgin olive oil, the kind we know and love as #UltraPremiumOliveOil is ALWAYS great to cook and bake with. The smoke point is about 410 degrees and it will retain all its health benefits and taste, these will not be hurt. Please know that Ultra Premium is different than supermarket olive oil so educate yourself on the oil you are using. My resource is @harvestoilandvinegar and they share loads of information on their website. They even site scientific studies about cooking with extra virgin olive oil. So mix it up and make #SmartNutrition part of your daily routine.
We can all start 2019 off right by working with our own biology to be the healthiest version of ourselves. I made the decision to switch to a keto lifestyle a year and a half ago, and the benefits of this lifestyle have been everything I wished for and more. Keto has had a tremendous impact on reducing my inflammation and improving my overall well-being. But, I understand that it can be daunting to make a change to keto and start something completely new. This is why I am so excited to share that this Friday, January 4th, The Dr. Oz Show will be all about the right way to practice keto, plus it will feature my groundbreaking documentary series, The Real Skinny on Fat, which includes my friends Montel Williams and Dr. Josh Axe. This docuseries takes a deep dive with over 80+ experts to finally answer all your questions about diet, weight, FAT, health and your longevity, with amazing new science and research that's changing the way we look at our human bodies all the way down to the cellular level. .

Here’s a fun New Year’s fact: the word “January” is derived from the month’s namesake: Janus, the Roman god of beginnings, whose two faces allowed him to look back into the past and forward into the future. In fact, civilizations around the world have been celebrating the start of each New Year for at least four millennia, and there’s a common thread across most cultural traditions — the New Year represents an opportunity for renewal. And so, here we are together on January 1, 2019 filled with a sense of hope, excitement and curiosity. Did you set a resolution…or a New Year INTENTION? I did, and you can see it in this sketch done by Sam Perches, who will be bringing it to life through sharing the videos and blogs of my travels, discoveries and learnings. As with my nutritional recipes, supplements, beauty tools (inside and out), and life hacks, the information I share with YOU, family, and friends is who I am and how I live every day. I practice what I learn, and I lean on you as much as I hope you lean on me. That’s why I want to share with you my intention for 2019… I’ve always considered myself a guide, an explorer, a discoverer who isn’t content with simply being told that things are the way they are. It’s this insatiable curiosity that leads me to travel, to touch and experience for myself, and see with my own eyes, to draw information and learnings from cultures all over our globe. In 2019, it is my intention for all of us to live better and go further than ever imagined. Buckle up—it’s going to be an exciting trip!
Self-care…placing our oxygen masks on first before helping another is a counterintuitive move for most of us. It is also a move that I get a ton of push back on from many of you. But, I think we can agree that it is critically important to our our lives – family, work and especially our health and well-being. . 2018, a year that flew by with so many firsts: I authored my first book Glow15, that included an inspiring foreword by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, interviewed more than 80+ experts for my free docu-series, The Real Skinny on Fat, built the superfood company, Simply GOODFATS– a brand of products that I am so proud to share with my family and all of you. It was though, this very last trip of 2018 that brought me to a moment I have been dreaming about for over two years, and until now had been unable to experience. This was meeting and interviewing Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, the 2016 Nobel Prize Winner in medicine for mechanisms of autophagy. . What happened during our interview was so moving and so powerful that it brought me to tears. At this same moment I also realized that this was my expression of self-care, and it took me back to all the reasons why I wrote Glow15– to support you in achieving your health and wellness and focusing on practicing self-care in your own lives. Wishing you a happy, healthy, and wonder-filled 2019!

These Brownie Bombs are the bomb! Filled with antioxidant-rich cacao, these are an excellent source of polyphenols and medium chain fatty acids with the Simply GOODFATS Creamy MCT. I love hazelnut butter, but you can choose any high-quality nut or seed butter you have on hand. The gelatin in this recipe holds the brownies together while providing an excellent source of collagen. . Ingredients: 1/2 cup water 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin from grass fed cows 1 cup hazelnut butter (or nut/seed butter of choice) 2 tablespoons Simply GOODFATS organic coconut oil  2 tablespoons Simply GOODFATS Creamy MCT 2/3 cup raw cacao powder  1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon baking soda Dash sea salt 3 tablespoons monk fruit 3 drops stevia 1/3 dark chocolate chips . Directions: 1. Preheat oven 350 degrees. Prepare an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper draping over the sides. 2. Fill a small saucepan with the 1/2 cup water and stir in gelatin. Let sit for a few minutes. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend the remaining ingredients together until smooth. 3. Bring the gelatin mixture to gentle simmer over medium heat. Stir continuously until it’s completely dissolved and there isn’t any lumps. Turn off the heat. Quickly stir in the cacao mixture until until a uniformed, smooth batter is achieved. Fold in chocolate chips and stir to combine. 4. Immediately transfer to the baking pan and spread batter evenly around all four sides. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is slightly crisp and the center is fully cooked (check with a toothpick or a think fork). 5. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks for 30 minutes. Cut into squares. Enjoy warm or store leftovers in a glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

My mantra is fat first, fat most, every day in every way! I’m talking about healthy fats like my favorite avocados, organic MCT oil, and omega-3 fatty acids, as they don’t spike your blood sugar and they are great for keeping you satiated and fueled. To pack my morning with healthy fats, I drizzle half an avocado with two teaspoons of tea seed oil, a teaspoon of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes. On a High Day, I top it off with four ounces of smoked salmon and an ounce of crumbled goat cheese to get the additional protein. I hope you enjoy!
In my book, Glow15, I share how to achieve healthy and glowing skin by activating our cellular renewal process, autophagy, which is something that is new and groundbreaking to the beauty industry. . The quest for youthful, glowing skin is not superficial. It is your largest organ, and a direct reflection of your inner health and well-being. Dry, sun-damaged, dull skin, and fine lines and wrinkles can be visible signs of your body’s degradation. But, when your skin glows it radiates inner beauty and health!
I am currently traveling in Kyoto, Japan and I cannot wait to share all that I am learning here, what an incredible culture! I have always been adventurous and live my life with the goal of bringing the health and beauty practices and wisdom from cultures around the world, in an easy and accessible way that makes sense for our busy lives. So, I’m challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. This food was probably a staple for your grandmother, I know it was for mine; and incorporating it into your meals or recipes could give you a huge nutritional payback for your investment. I’m talking about liver. This nutrient-dense, powerhouse of a food supports beautiful skin, healthy metabolism and sustained energy levels. .

Hydration sets the foundation for good health. So, guzzling water throughout the day should be at the top of your must-do list. It rids the body of toxins, gives your skin a healthy glow, and has been proven to actually help your body burn calories. I often share about how timing matters when it comes to nourishing our bodies, and the concept applies to hydration as well. Reaching for water BEFORE your morning coffee or tea can jumpstart your system. This switch aids digestion, supports your metabolism, and strengthens the immune system, setting your body up for success for the day.
In keto, questions and forums about protein are mostly limited to the right quantity of protein to eat, or when to eat it. Followers of the lifestyle quickly discover that while keto is low-carb, it is not high protein, which makes a strong case for why it’s crucial to success to understand how to optimize protein consumption by eating the right kind of protein in proper amounts that support a keto lifestyle. If you’re like me, and you consistently look for ways to maximize the nutrition from your food through consuming goodfats, and maintaining the proper intake of protein, in an effort to boost your energy levels, support a healthy immune system and contribute to beautiful, glowing skin, read on! .

You’ve gotten more sleep. You eat a ton of fiber. You cut back on your alcohol and sugar and drink clean water. You’ve dealt with the dust and mold. If you have allergies, they aren’t overwhelming you. Nevertheless, a puffiness persists. Could being more mindful of the fats you eat and how well you digest them help soothe the stuffiness and banish the bloat? Let’s explore some critical fats and foods that support digestion to boost a high-fat, and ketogenic lifestyle. Click the link in my bio to learn more!
Even when you want the Iceberg wedge, opt for the leafy Mediterranean greens instead. . Not all salads are created equal. . Simply switching your type of greens can make a profound impact on health benefits you are getting out of what you THINK is a good meal. Iceberg lettuce is mainly water. Dark leafy greens like arugula, spinach, chard, collard greens, beet greens and kale all take the same amount of time to prepare and eat--but have multitudes of vitamins, anti-aging nutrients, iron, antioxidants, and fiber.
One of the greatest myths told by the food and health community in the past century is that eating fat will make you fat. For the past 90+ years, nutrition scientists and MDs have used the Ketogenic diet for its value in reducing epileptic seizures. . Today, things are so exciting as we are now taking our wellness and supporting it by using a nutritional keto diet to help treat chronic illness, balance blood sugar, lose weight, and for many of us reduce the inflammation in our bodies. . The list of benefits (and success stories) to eating a diet high in good fats goes on. But, the one thing we now know and need to continue to share is that the fat on your hips is not due to the fat you put between your lips. In other words, eating fat doesn’t make you fat! .

I might be a little obsessed with food and clean eating... these are a portion of the books I’ve read the last 3-4 months. My purpose is to help humans relearn how to eat... I’ve realized that as a society we have forgotten how to feed ourselves!! It is up to us to feed ourselves (and our family) real, whole, and nutrient-dense foods. If we don’t we will continue the cycle towards illness, disease, and more and more obesity. Our children deserve better. Do you agree? I loved all these books. My main takeaway? That no diet or form of eating works for every body. We are bio-individual and must learn to listen within to be guided. I have applied what So much what I have learned from these incredible pioneers and am here to guide you too! If you’re still reading then stay tuned for my 14-Day Clean Eating Detox!

In #Glow15 , I give you the tools to understand yourself, harness this process within your body and activate your autophagy. Please don’t undervalue the critical role self-care plays in our life. . Treat yourself, enjoy some self-care today and get all the autophagy activating benefits at the same time!
Polyphenols are micronutrients with powerful antioxidant activity, and they are found abundantly in common foods like vegetables, fruits, red wine and cocoa. Amazingly, there are over 8,000 polyphenols already identified, and probably more that are yet to be discovered! I coined the term Powerphenol because I’ve found that intelligent, high-potency polyphenol supplementation plays a key role in slowing aging, supporting a high-fat diet, and increasing your vitality. Similarly to how you would upgrade an airline seat for more legroom or upgrade the operating system on your phone, think of Powerphenols as an upgrade for your nutritional status. When I say that, I’m referring to creating a wellness shield that protects against degenerative diseases, increases beneficial bacteria in your gut, and supplements a high-fat or keto lifestyle (among other benefits). Regardless of your age, size, fitness level or lifestyle, your goal should be not only to survive, but thrive! That is exactly what Powerphenols do: they act as a nutritional bonus that takes your health to the next level.

My Mantra! While many of us have been conditioned to think of dietary fat as our enemy, this is simply not the case. . Fat is our friend - it's absolutely essential to optimal health. Fat is your body's preferred fuel. It's satiating, making it protective against cravings for unhealthy foods. It's a nutritional hero with incredible powers to help you achieve optimum health. . Natural, unprocessed fats are found in real foods like avocado 🥑 , butter, nuts, salmon, Alaskan cod oil, coconut 🥥 oil, and tea seed oil. #Glow15
From the time I was a little girl, my mother served me a breakfast of eggs, berries and cod liver oil (I know, sounds very odd!), but that solid beginning with sound nutrition has made me an advocate of supplementing my diet with key nutrients, good fats to reduce inflammation, stay healthy and slow the aging process. . With that said, no supplementation should replace whole fatty foods and regular exercise to achieve and maintain a healthy body and mind (think: nature’s pharmacy always comes first!), but they sure can compliment a diet rich in good fats and fitness plan in a significant way. Plant extracts in the form of polyphenols play a huge role in activating your cellular detoxification process known as autophagy. Autophagy promotes vitality and a longer life, so anything that helps stimulate it is something I want you to know more about! Since polyphenols are paramount players in activating your autophagy and supplementing a lifestyle of wellness, I have included them as one of the foundational components of my book, #Glow15 . .

I’m convinced that fresh, high-quality omega-3 cod oil might be the best-kept secret for improving your health right now. . On my trip to Alaska, I spent time observing the traditions of the native Inuit people. I found they rely on fresh, pure, real foods. Even though I’ve seen this trend time and time again among the healthiest and oldest traditions around the world, it was still so interesting to see yet another culture confirm that there is something incredibly precious about real food. And not just real food, but pure real food, with little to no modern toxicants. . What is it about cod omega-3 oil that seems to help so much? Fish such as Wild Alaskan Cod or Salmon contain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Fish livers are concentrated sources of these long chain EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), omega-3 fats that are essential to the functioning of the human body. Cultures that eat a lot of fish, like the Inuit, have no problem getting enough EPA and DHA into their systems. But most Americans do not eat enough fish like herring, mackerel, sardines, trout, halibut, wild salmon, and cod to reap the benefits fully. While you might be familiar with fish oil supplements which are a combination of oils from various fish, cod omega-3 oil comes from one source, cod, which allows for more control over the purity of the oils. It is higher in natural vitamins A and D than other fish and provides a very concentrated source of omega-3’s. . My mother gave me cod liver oil as a child and as crazy as it might sound, I loved it then and I still enjoy it today! It gets better – my kids enjoy it too! But if you didn’t love cod liver oil as a child or you find yourself unsure of how the flavor will work for you now, luckily, there are milder and deliciously flavored cod liver oils available. It is available in liquid or capsule form and are tasteless or have refreshingly clean flavors like mint, lemon or orange to mask any fishy flavor. While most people take a cod liver oil supplement in the morning, with breakfast, some studies suggest that taking a supplement in the evening can promote better sleep – another win!
Grown throughout Asia, #berberine has been used for centuries as an alternative medicine. The highly potent active in these nutritional supplements not only help defend your cells from disease, but also work to mend existing damage. . Beyond the benefits of age-defying #autophagy , berberine gets bonus points for its weight-reducing and fat-burning powers. Berberine activates a compound called AMPK, a “metabolic master switch” that turns on thermogenesis (burning more fat for heat while reducing white fat production). In one study, those who took berberine three times daily for 13 weeks lost an average of 5 pounds – a simple trick to hack your weight management plan! . Metabolic experts compare the effects of berberine to regular exercise – which sounds too good to be true, I know. But because berberine is masterful at improving insulin sensitivity and reducing high blood sugar – studies imply it is effective at controlling blood sugar – it’s the closest thing science has discovered to capturing the benefits of exercise in a pill. . Concerned with heart health? Berberine reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels (like our friend, curcumin) by reducing intestinal cholesterol absorption and reducing high concentrations of fats in the bloodstream. If you are ready to quit smoking, berberine has been shown to help reduce lung damage from cigarette smoke. Digestive problems? Berberine supports healthy gut flora (bacteria) and may be used to fight certain parasitic gut infections. . Berberine is in some herbs (like goldenseal and barberry) but not in common foods. Take 500 mg capsules three times daily at meals to reduce the potential for stomach upset as well as to provide the opportunity to take advantage of its ability to lower spikes in blood sugar after meals. #Glow15

Sherri, We know that intermittent fasting helps activate a cellular detox process called autophagy. And you want the process of autophagy occurring in your body because of its role in rejuvenating the parts of your cells that keep you healthy, and cleansing the cellular waste that doesn’t. With muted autophagy comes accelerated aging and disease. Activating autophagy is like getting rid of the gunk that makes getting older feel like you’re perpetually engaged in an uphill battle against time. Intermittent fasting activates autophagy within your cells to help you get more of that child-like vitality. Just like children go through periods of growth versus maintenance, your autophagy also fluctuates between active periods and maintenance as well. Intermittent fasting is the practice of shifting between periods of unrestricted eating and restricted eating which provides a restful time for your body to repair and heal. During the “fasting” time, your cells enter a phase where they literally digest themselves to recycle the good and discard the bad. Think about it: if you’re constantly eating — which is the case for many of us as we graze throughout the day — it doesn’t give your cells a chance to repair and clean up the waste and toxins they have accumulated. Short periods of fasting give them the time to take care of those tasks. I learned that the hormones glucagon and insulin were the two most critical hormones that people need to get control over. Without their coordinated dance, your hormones will continue to be all over the place, and you’ll continue to experience accelerated aging. . •I'm on the right track in getting my body ready. . . @naomiwhittel (daily email) . . #ketobabe #ketones #ketoinfo #keto #lchf #eatfatburnfat #ketofam #fasting #ketolifer #highfatlowcarb #macros #bulletproofcoffee #ketolove #ketoforhealth #fatadapted #fatfueled #ketofamily #selfcare #bulletproof #nojudement #autophagy #glow15 #youthfulglow #naomiwhittel
Will be hitting 60 hours at noon today. Feeling so much better than the last 2 days. Tomorrow (day 4) I'm hoping autophagy starts. I was just telling @sassa3985 that I stay the fast because I love that eurphoric feeling on day 5. Especially when you've been in a #bahhumbug Christmas depression. I'm demanding 😁 this fast take me out of my funk. I'm literally owning this fast. My last fast was 80 hours so this time I'm pushin for 100 and fingers crossed I can surpass that number and keep going. #ketoforhealth . . .

AUTOPHAGY FASTING...This week in my Resetter group we are practicing a new kind of fast called Autophagy Fasting. ⠀⠀ Autophagy is the term used to describe how your cells repair themselves when you stop eating. ⠀⠀ At about 16hrs of fasting a switch will turn on in your body & your cells will start to eating the toxins inside the cell. Toxins that turn genes 🧬 on! ⠀⠀ There are four major rules you must follow to stimulate Autophagy. ⠀⠀ Rule #1 - Fast for at least 16hrs. Many experts believe that the sweet spot for Autophagy is someone between 16-24 hrs. ⠀⠀ Autophagy is quickly getting the reputation as being the key to slowing down aging. ⠀⠀ Join me in my FREE Resetter group to learn more! ⠀⠀ http://bit.ly/Resetters ⠀⠀ #keto #ketodiet #ketogenic #ketosis #fasting #intermittentfasting #fastmimickingdiet #happyfasting #healthy #healthyliving #drmindypelz #resetters #resettertribe #ketobiotic #ketobioticreset #ketoforwomen #autophagy #glow15 #ipreview @preview.app

Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy Thanksgiving! 🦃
Have you found that the holidays can be overwhelming because stress overcomes you!? Time to focus on things like connection, celebration, appreciation, and reflection? It’s easy to get caught up in what needs to happen for you to stay in a rhythm of self-care with all the travel plans, unscheduled eating opportunities, and perhaps family dynamics creating stress. What if you knew ways to help your body and mind cope with the potential stressors? This Thanksgiving I want to empower you with practical tips to reduce the inner cellular stress that can happen during the holidays so you can enjoy your Thanksgiving fully! . Click the link in my bio to read more on my top tips on how, what and when to eat so you use Thanksgiving to work for you – not against you. Also, how to plan your eating schedule so you keep your blood sugar balanced and arrive at your holiday meal with a calm, and grounded presence. Happy Thanksgiving!
I have always enjoyed a higher fat diet, but I had no idea that by shifting to a keto lifestyle how unbelievable I would feel. Finally, refined grains and sugar began to no longer appeal to me (at least most of the time, but I still have a craving every once in a while). Sometimes, I get a hankering for that cozy perfume of warm bread permeating from the kitchen throughout the whole house, and it inspired this recipe for a delicious bread. This is the kind of bread that doesn’t weigh you down, make you bloated, or give you that groggy feeling 20 minutes later. Instead, the good fats from the almonds, pastured egg yolks, grass-fed ghee, and MCT oil will sustain your energy while also helping you to burn fat. Enjoy! Ingredients: 6 large eggs (ideally from pastured hens), separated 1/4 cup organic, grass-fed butter or ghee, melted 1 tablespoon Simply GOODFATS organic MCT oil, plus extra for coating the pan 1 1/2 cups almond flour 1/4 cup coconut flour 3 teaspoons baking powder (must be aluminum free) 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional) 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (optional) 1 pinch sea salt 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener 2 tablespoons chopped olives (optional) Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. In a food processor blend the egg yolks, half of the egg white mixture, melted butter, and MCT oil until smooth. Pulse in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, garlic (optional), rosemary (optional), salt and monk fruit sweetener until combined. The mixture will be thick. Add the remaining egg whites and olives (optional) and pulse until fully combined. Do not over-mix or bread texture will be tough. Pour mixture into an oiled 8 x 4 loaf pan. Bake for about 30 minutes. Test with a fork to see if the bread is cooked through. Cool on a wire rack for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
The deeper I got into the science of autophagy and good stress, it became clear that we need to take advantage of the many ways to use acute stress (which is the good kind) for the improvement of our health and well-being. I set out to challenge myself to grow and find creative ways to minimize chronic stress while accentuating the short bouts of health, good stress. . Chronic stress, like ongoing job insecurity or relationship difficulties can wreak havoc on your adrenal glands, resulting in the dysregulation of cortisol, contributing to a host of health issues from lowered immunity, weight gain and hormonal imbalance. . In my New York Times bestselling book, Glow15, I provide you some of my favorite ways to ignite acute stress, like the kind you get from exercise or from practicing intermittent fasting and protein cycling. This kind of positive dietary stress activates your autophagy, helping you to unlock the keys to your own cellular repair. . Another way I’ve found to use stress to my advantage is by practicing responding (versus reacting) to the situations I encounter in my day-to-day life…which I find incredibly beneficial during the holiday season as well. . I explore the mindful difference between responding and reacting in my latest blog post-click the link in my bio to read more!
Pecans offer the perfect flavor mixture of buttery and nutty. Classic pecan pie is decadent, and a traditional Thanksgiving treat but it contains more sugar than the body should consume in a week! With this recipe, I sought to capture the taste and essence of traditional pecan pie without all the toxic sugar. This smoothie is a perfect way to enjoy the plethora of healthy nutrients in pecans such as monounsaturated and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as B-vitamins, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and copper. If you prefer a roasted taste, it’s best to purchase raw pecans and lightly toast them at home, as opposed to the store-bought variety. Not only are nuts easily oxidized, but when they are also commercially roasted, they have likely been exposed to high heat and rancid oils. Hearty pecans, slightly sweet Vanilla Creamer, creamy macadamia nut butter, and warm cinnamon make this simple smoothie recipe as delicious and comforting as pecan pie. So try something new and healthy this Thanksgiving! . Instructions: 3/4 cup unsweetened almond, hemp or coconut milk 1 tablespoon SGF Vanilla Creamer 2 tablespoons raw or lightly toasted pecans 2 tablespoons ground flax seed 1 tablespoon cashew or macadamia butter 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon dash sea salt . Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until silky smooth. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, cool in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes then serve. Enjoy!

Have you heard of Autophagy? - It’s the process in which your cells recycle old, damaged parts into fresh new parts that function better. Like an upgrade! - Our cells go through alot of stress and damage each day (whether we notice or not) and if our autophagy process isn’t functioning well, this is how aging is accelerated! I’m learning all about this in the book Glow15 by @naomiwhittel and loving it already. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to boost energy, lose weight, and slow aging inside & out! ✨💕 - I’m all about prevention, so why not optimize this BEFORE it becomes a problem?
If you are experiencing a weight-loss plateau, there are dietary switches you can make or address such as checking for quality of food, especially fats you are eating, along with ensuring you are consuming enough (or not too much) of them. But, did you know that there are also other non-food related approaches to overcoming a plateau as well? Examples include movement, sleep and changing up your “timing,” plus the often overlooked importance of self-care! Taking a hard look at your schedule, striking out what isn’t serving your highest good, and filling it with self-care gives you the time and space to just be. Indulging in self-soothing, stress-reducing behaviors, such as journaling, reading, meditation, getting a massage, yoga, a candlelit Epsom salts bath, putting some lavender in the diffuser, giving yourself a spa day, or taking the time to plan your work so you can work your plan, can easily move you past that stress-induced plateau. Click the link in my bio to read more from my new blog post on additional reasons you may be plateauing! #happyhumpday #selflove
Trust me, we have all been there. Making some progress on a strength-gaining and weight-loss program of our own design or that of others, finally having a bit of success… and then suddenly, the scale shows no movement. . Here’s the secret - you are not the exception. You are the rule. Most people have trouble with sustained and sustainable weight loss. This includes me at various times in my life as well so trust me when I say, I totallly get how it feels to plateau. . Our bodies seek to do the least work possible to get the most benefit with the available resources, just like our minds do. When you hear nutrition professionals speak of a “balanced diet,” what that really means is a diet that contains multiple types of foods from multiple groups of whole foods. One of the benefits of the program in Glow15 is using similar types of meals in the difficult-to-manage parts of your day (like a hectic morning), while encouraging diversity in the meals you enjoy later in the day by filling your plate with different colors, proteins, healthy fats, herbs, spices, and cooking methods! Keep your body adapting to different foods and digestion challenges and you will encourage a more flexible metabolism. .
