Do you find that you eat breakfast and your are starving within a few hours?
If you are like any of our clients this is what you hate the most about dieting! The sheer bloody hunger we feel when we deprive ourselves. And sometimes it happens even after you've eaten 'a good breakfast'! Very annoying.
But I just couldn't work out why this happened. So it piqued my interest. Why when I’ve had a meal, do I get hungry again within just 2 hours?
I thought it was more protein I needed and I know that as a vegetarian I have to be careful with this so I adjusted my protein and tested it on myself. But it turned out that that didn't really help.
So back to the experts I went!
And imagine this……………all my research led me to one inescapable fact.
Lack of fat makes you fat.
Shall I say that again? Lack of fat makes you fat.
Why is this?
Because there is a process called ketosis. When we eat our normal low fat diets the body does not use up its fat for fuel. But when you dramatically increase the addition of good fats, the body goes into a a metabolic state whereby it shifts to burning fat for fuel. AKA a state of ketosis.
But – and this is the gold – you need to trip a metabolic switch to shift the body into ketosis. And you can do this by eating a Vegan Keto Food Plan.
And when you do this, many people report a dramatic difference in their metabolic functions, including the ability to:
• go long periods without food
• lose weight effortlessly
• manage and regulate blood sugar
• restore blood markers to normal levels, and so much more
Once you’re in ketosis, you spend so much time just not hungry!
I’m sure you’ve heard of bulletproof coffee? The amazing thing about it is that its used as part of a ketogenic diet.
Now I don’t like coffee and I don’t like traditional Ketogenic diets which get their fat from Meat, eggs, butter.
But try this drink. I drink this in the morning and don’t get hungry for nearly four hours!
RECIPE - Bulletproof Non-Coffee
1 cup oat/almond milk
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 heaped teaspoon nut butter
NB don’t try this without blending – its horrid!
Let me know how you go?
