Keto Benefits No One Ever Talks About!
You always hear that going keto will help you lose weight, and losing weight is great and all, but what about all the other incredible perks of ketosis that no one ever talks about???
Restored skin elasticity- nourishing your body with fats and protein will help your skin rejuvenate itself and tighten back up! Had babies? Recently lost a ton of weight (prob with keto)? Spend too many years in the sun? Age catching up with you? No worries!!! Going keto will help with that!
Clearer skin- break outs tend to come from hormonal and dietary issues, so cleaning up your diet = clearing up your skin! I literally haven’t had a pimple since I started my keto journey back in December of 2016!
Amazing hair- Ok, this one is one I never expected! I’ve been trying to go low-poo (decreasing the amount of times per week you use shampoo on your hair due to the damaging properties shampoo has) for years now. I finally had trained my hair to be able to go a full 5 days with no shampoo, though I do still use rinses and conditioner on my off days when needed, and my goal was to get to 8 days! When I went keto, my hair suddenly was everything I always wanted it to be. I only have to use shampoo every 1.5 – 2 weeks now! And it is growing….FAST! The curls are amazing, and it’s healthier than it’s ever been! No complaints about oil hair these days 🙂
Menstrual Cycle- My monthly visitor is shorter, lighter, and easier than ever. My cramps used to be excruciating and last for several days! Now, they are mild and only occur the first day of my period. Talk about a relief, right ladies?
Your health- The Ketogenic diet is used to treat soooo many different health issues. Illnesses like epilepsy, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, metabolic syndrome, multiple sclerosis, fatty liver disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, migraines, and many many more!
If the ketogenic diet can help heal or ease the symptoms of the illnesses listed above, there is no doubt it is working many more miracles inside us.
Cheaper grocery bills- Your first grocery trip might seem expensive due to needing to throw out things you are stocked up on, and replacing them with keto friendly versions! Example: replacing regular flour with almond/coconut flour, regular butter with grass fed butter, coffee creamer with half and half, sugar with truvia, etc.
BUT! Once you get that first trip out of the way, eating keto is cheap and easy! Almost every recipe in Keto The Kind Way can be made with super basic ingredients that I always stay stocked up on. Almond milk, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, butter, eggs, etc! And the book comes with a bonus grocery list to make your first trip feel not-so-overwhelming!
The fact is, carbs are expensive! When you aren’t buying them anymore you suddenly have room in your budget to spend more on actual nutrient filled whole foods and then some!
