Omg, I found this on my old old Facebook account and damn. Time is fast. I still remember everything that has happened to me like it was yesterday. Guys, time is very important and it's the most valuable asset in the world. Take proper control of it please!
A child once told me I had big thighs... I told her it’s because of all my muscles 😂 #thickthighssavelives
▫️CLASSIC WHITE▫️Don’t forget your white veggies! Mushrooms, cauliflower, potatoes, onions and turnips can sometimes be forgotten in the diet (okay maybe not potatoes, especially in my diet) but they are full of fibre, magnesium and potassium which we can sometimes fall short of.
White veggies get their colour from the phytochemicals anthoxanthins and organosulfur compounds, which studies have shown decrease Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and prevent the formation of inflammatory messengers. I never knew they were so amazing! Definitely going to look into this more!
I had someone say to me recently... you never struggled with your weight so I don't understand your before and after pictures. .
I know way more about the struggle than you think I do.
I was the kid growing up that didn't have many friends and used to get called names because of my weight.
I was the kid who used to bring a note in for gym class because I was afraid people would laugh at me.
I was the kid growing up who was so painfully shy that if you talked to me I would turn bright red. .
I was the kid that didn't eat at lunch time because I didn't want people to see me eat or comment about what or how I was eating. .
Today I did a closet clean out and found these pants. I wore these BEFORE I ever got pregnant and they were too tight after. 😫 I am not sure why I never got rid of them. .
Every pound I lost gave me a little more confidence. I didn't just lose the weight to to feel healthier on the outside but it helped me on the inside as well! .
We all have our own struggles and what you think might come easy to someone may not necessarily come true. .
I could not have done this without the support of my amazing group and changing my mindset about nutrition. .
I love sharing this program with others so if you would like to learn more comment below or message me!
Following on from my post a couple of days there’s nothing like a good before and after 🤷🏼♀️
Its about the krebs cycle in liver mitochondria. Ketogenesis is the result of a "relatively" high amount acetyl-COA to Oxaloacetate in liver mitochondria. Anything that causes that situation to occur will result in ketogenesis.
The first obvious way is to restrict carbohydrate or fast. When we reduce carbohydrate, we need to initiate gng in order to maintain circulating blood glucose levels. When this happens, a key intermediate(Oxaloacetate) of the krebs cycle in liver mitochondria is pulled away from the krebs cycle in order to be used in the process of gng. The result is that the acetyl-COA that is coming into the liver mitochondria is now coming into a Krebs cycle that can't utilize the incoming acetyl-COA. Krebs is impaired or in a sense stalled. So instead of the acetyl-COA being run through the krebs cycle and then the electron transport chain, the surplus acetyl-COA is diverted towards the ketogenesis pathway and is converted to ketones and sent back out to the periphery to be used.
Another way to drive ketogenesis is to again create this "relatively" high amount acetyl-COA to Oxaloacetate in liver mitochondria by flooding the liver mitochondria with excess acetyl-COA. The most direct way to achieve this is with MCT oil. In this instance, you could even be eating lots of carbs and have no need for gng and thus have no need for Oxaloacetate to be stripped from Krebs. So the krebs cycle in liver mitochondria is capable of handling lots of incoming acetyl-COA. However, since mct are digested uniquely compared to other fats they are sent directly to the liver which artificially raises the incoming amount acetyl-COA relative to available Oxaloacetate and exceeds the ablity of the liver mitochondria to utilize the incoming acetyl-COA. The result is that the surplus acetyl-COA is diverted towards the ketogenesis pathway.
This "relatively" high acetyl-COA to Oxaloacetate ratio is why we see the ketone dynamics that we do post exercise etc.
It's why uncontrolled t1d develop ketoacidosis as well. In their case they have both the loss of Oxaloacetate towards gng coupled with the excess incoming acetyl-COA due to uninhibited lipoloysis.
Dedication, hard work. The world can go against me. Ima still come out on top. I got God on my side.
A lot of the time i tend to think negative this week I am trying to think more positively and see how I feel. You should try being more positive to and let me know how you feel! 💛
Hit the gym today feeling super good 💪🏽
This morning I woke up and looked in the mirror, normally I would hate what I see but today I saw slight changes in my body. The small things I do everyday like working out is bringing me that much closer to my goal. I haven’t felt this motivated in a long time. I’m so excited to see what I can do!
