The Ketogenic diet has been around for over a hundred years but has only been getting the media attention it deserves just recently. Keto has been used in medicine to control brain disorders such as Alzheimer's, dementia, attention deficit disorder, and drug-resistant epilepsy, especially in children.
Contrary to the popular general recommendation of dietary fat restriction, more and more health professionals are now seeing low-carb, high-fat diet or ketogenic as a much better option to treat obesity and other diseases.
To put it simply, Ketogenic or keto is a type of diet that is low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and is high in fat. But why avoid carbs? When we eat food that is high in carbs, our body produces insulin and glucose.
Glucose is the easiest molecule to convert into energy which makes it our body’s primary source of energy. Insulin, on the other hand, is produced to process the glucose in our body by diffusing it all over.

When I’m drinking a keto coffee instead of eating my breakfast, I’m whirling around in the kitchen doing this coffee. Coffee gets the fat cells out of your cells and into the bloodstream to flush them out of your system. That’s not the reason why I’m drinking coffee, but I love coffee and that’s a great side effect.
OK, when do I drink a keto coffee? I drink it when I don’t want to eat for breakfast and if I don’t want to go full down the fasting route and want to go to the gym. There are days when I workout fully fasted and somewhere I’ve my keto coffee before my workouts.
This version of a keto coffee is added with lots of goodness and I show you how:
I add 1 tsp of cocoa powder, ½ tsp cinnamon, one stick of butter, 1 Tbsp MCT Oil and some pink Himalayan salt to my coffee and mix it in a blender until frothy.
Cocoa powder is full of antioxidants which I love to have tons of in my system, the same...

You know that feeling, right? That feeling after you ate pizza or pasta for lunch and you feel so damn tired that you could go straight to bed. Lunchtime and you just want to sleep, but you still need to work. Isn’t that terrible? Why is it that way? You could think: Perhaps it’s me and I am just a person with no energy who is always tired, etc… But you are not! It’s the food you ate which makes you feel so tired and drained.
After you ate the pizza or pasta your blood sugar sky rockets- Why? Because they are shock full of carbs which are turned into sugar in your body.
Yeah, and what’s the problem with that? Well if your blood sugar skyrockets it will crash down soon, which will leave you tried as hell and exhausted. Your body starts craving lot's of sugar very soon to get energized again. So… you walk to that donut stand in front of your office and get 1 or 2 donuts and a coffee with sugar to get awake again and because this...
I don’t know about you but for me it never felt right and healthy to stuff my face with meat and cheese. And even worse: There are rumors out there that the keto diet is only eating meat and cheese!! Yes, really! That’s why we are here now with my video on the healthy keto diet. Relax, grab a cup of coffee or tea without sugar and watch the video.
For those people who are readers and no film watcher, here is your story:
Meat and cheese paired with diet soda are not the form of keto diet which helps you to look healthy, slim and fit like Hale Berry!

Because 80% of your immune system are in your gut. If you want to get fit, healthy and a skin to die for you better take good care of it! If you are eating...
