Trying and trying to lose weight but nothing getting you where you want to be? If this is the all too common problem you face, then it’s time to take a note from Kim Knoch from the Eat Fat Lose Fat blog and her new book, Kick the Weight with Keto, which is all about how a paleo ketogenic diet can help you lose weight.
Now I must begin by saying there’s a BIG difference between nutritional ketosis, or “keto” for short, and ketoacidosis. You may have heard of ketoacidosis, which is a serious, medical condition. By contrast, a keto diet is a great way to help you burn fat, rather than glucose, as a source of energy.
Kim Knoch is the first person to admit she has struggled with her weight over the years, and this book about the ketogenic diet is a raw reveal to the struggles she’s faced trying numerous diets, with the highs and lows that will always come with dramatic changes to your lifestyle.
Kim documents that she first began a Weston A Price diet some 7 years ago. Although initially seeing some weight loss, Kim soon began experiencing issues including joint pain, wild swings in blood sugar and mood swings.
It wasn’t until 2012 that Kim started to employ nutritional ketosis, while incorporating a few things she had had success with through a paleo diet to form her now paleo keto diet.
The Fat That Fuels You
A paleo ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate protein, low-carbohydrate diet where you train your brain to use ketones for fuel instead of glucose. I know what you must be thinking: she wants me to eat a high-fat diet??? Why yes 🙂 By lowering your carbohydrate intake enough, your body will start to break down that fat for fuel! By following paleo keto, Kim has lost an amazing 40 pounds, and she describes it not just as a diet she’s trying, rather a “lifestyle, something that I should–no–that I could maintain over years.” Kick the Weight with Keto
