Keto Mistakes You Don’t Know You’re Making


Hey guys, thanks for hitting that play
button. This video is for anyone who 1.
has tried the ketogenic diet and decided
it wasn’t for them or 2. Someone who has
been on the ketogenic diet and is
finding that they’re not getting the
same kind of results as maybe they got
in the beginning. So I’ve been on the
ketogenic diet for almost two years and
any different path that you may have
gone down I’ve probably also gone down
myself and what I want to share with you
today are some of the key pitfalls that
a lot of us can bump into and maybe not
even realize. So we’re going to talk
about how you can do the nutritional
ketogenic diet while also having
different food intolerances. So we’re
going to talk about the three main ones
and the first one is gluten intolerance.
That’s what I have and so I feel like I
can really share with you a perspective
on how to do keto and also manage a
gluten intolerance and there are a
couple of issues that pop up that I want
to share with you because I think
they’re very very interesting. So first
and foremost when you’re keto it
almost naturally fits like a hand in a
glove with being gluten free because for
example anytime you’re making food and
you take out the grains, you’re taking
out the carbs, so it actually can help
you when you’re going keto and then
staying gluten free when you’re keto.
Here’s the tricky part. A lot of times
you can be what you think is gluten-free
but you’re getting cross-contamination.
So something that actually happened to
me that was a huge challenge. After about
a year of doing keto I started to not
feel as well as I had at the beginning
and I started to get bloated and I
couldn’t figure out what was going on
and so I I spent some time, I did food
journaling for about a week and what had
happened is over that year I started to
incorporate more and more nuts into my
diet. So
if it was almond milk or if I was making
an almond flour keto bread, which I love
so much, or if I was just eating handfuls
of nuts at different times in the day.
What was happening was while the nuts
that I was eating were the right types,
they were processed, many of them, in a
facility that also processed wheat so I
was getting cross-contamination. It was a
really big issue, so for any of you that
are looking to be gluten free and keto
just be very very careful about any form
of cross-contamination. Okay the second
area that we’re going to talk about with
food intolerance is dairy. How many of
you can’t tolerate either the casein or
the lactose. So if it’s one of those two,
my children actually two of my four kids,
are casein intolerant and they’re very
very sensitive to it. So in our house for
the past six, seven years we focused on
preventing them from ingesting any sort
of casein and that’s a little bit hard
at the beginning but when you do keto as
a non dairy keto that’s when you want to
incorporate lots of different foods for
example all of the delicious almond
milks, all of the macadamia, or you can
talk about pecans. There are lots of
coconut products like the coconut
yogurts, a lot of the fermented coconut
products that are so powerful and so
good on a non-dairy keto diet.
I interviewed Dr. Toni Bark, she’s an
amazing medical doctor, you should check
her out, and I interviewed her for the
Real Skinny on Fat and she is and has
been for a long period of time
keto but a vegan keto. So there’s so many
different types of amazing recipes if
you look through my collection of
recipes you’ll see so many of them and
most of them are dairy-free.
Nut allergies and keto. So many of you
have sensitivities to nuts or the nuts
are processed in a way where there’s
contamination or molds and I have great
news for you.
This month I’ve taken the opportunity to
really do keto without incorporating any
sort of nuts into my diet and I feel
great.
So for all of you that can’t have nuts
you want to be able to focus on other
ingredients like the dairy ingredients,
like the fermented foods, like the dark
green leafy vegetables, like high quality
meat products. And there’s so many ways
to get a super rich and incredibly
delicious keto lifestyle without
incorporating the nuts. My goal with this
little video was to help many of you
that may have started keto or are in the
middle of keto really embrace
nutritional ketosis in a meaningful way.
So here’s the thing, over five million
people in our country are in closed
Facebook communities around keto. It’s
such a trend and for good reason, it’s
way more than a trend. The science is
really supporting it and as we learn
more and more about how our body likes
to work, which fuel is the preferred fuel,
maybe you’re somebody who can tolerate
carbohydrates but for the 75% of us in
this country that cannot, keto is a
lifesaver. It’s a way of eating that can
truly transform the way you feel, how
much energy you have, the reduction in
inflammation, the reduction in cravings.
It’s changed my life and I just wanted
you to be able to have some extra little
tools to help you in case you have
different food sensitivities. So I’m
going to give you a couple of little
bonuses if you can grab one two or three
concepts from this video that can help
you on your personal journey to a better
life more help more well-being then I’ve
totally done my job and I’m so happy. And
I always always want to get your
comments. So here we go. This is bonus
number one. So this is an electrolyte
complex. I like to add some electrolytes
to my water throughout the day. Sometimes
it’s just a pinch of sea salt or
Himalayan salt, sometimes it’s actual
electrolytes. But I find if I ever need a
little boost
that I just need some more minerals. One
of the hardest things to do when you’re
getting into keto or when you’re making
a change in your life while you’re on keto,
so for example if you’re starting to
change the way you exercise, is your need
for electrolytes, your need for your
sodium, potassium, and magnesium can
change quite drastically. So always pay
attention to your electrolytes. Another
thing to think about when you’re doing
keto is the way that you process stress
so if you’re dealing with chronic stress
it can literally pop you out of keto. You
want to make sure that when you’re doing
keto you’re helping yourself to feel
good to have a good sense of well-being
and if you find that you’re in a
stressful situation, maybe you just need
a little bit more time to rest, to
rejuvenate, to relax. So give yourself the
luxury of some deep regenerative sleep.

  1. Cross contaminated nuts is an excellent point. I initially ate SO many nuts! And although I am not gluten intolerant but I did need to learn to wean off my nut addiction. Now I use macadamia or walnuts to break a fast and I eat 2 Brazil nuts a day for the Selenium right before I eat my big protein based meal. I never got into the nut butters, not really sure why. I've been "dirty" keto for 1 year (still drink beer occasionally) and reached my goal weight. What I found was I got caught up in the supplements train just trying to get the proper supplements w/o having to eat so much stuff. I counted macros for 6 months and learned that a keto lifestyle didn't require much food. Yikes! But what about the nutrition? Yes, it's slowly coming together and I am spending a lot less $ on supplements. The rabbit hole is that it's self taught. Thank you for great content.

  2. I don't know. Long-term benefits aren't proven, short-term isn't better than other better-studied alternatives, it's really tough to do and staying in actual ketosis is rare. I don't see the point over easier diets that have good scientific evidence for them.

  3. Wow! Very good points. Four months into this keto journey. Thanks for the advice. I will be watching for more videos.
    Thanks~

  4. lost a whopping 87 pounds stuck at 200 pounds. sensitive to dairy, nuts, almond flour. everything even coffee makes me stall….hope this video helps?

  5. I am a cancer patient healing. I fast regularly and eat WFPB. I struggle with eating that much fat, even good fats because of the cancer. I've tried vegan keto and I still am not sure it's for me. What are your thoughts???

  6. Hello!! I love all your videos and Glow 15 book. Would you please tell me where to buy the electrolyte complex? It would be great if you can suggest the brand you use. Thank you

  7. I'm gluten sensitive, so learning about cross contamination is invaluable. Nice to know I can make some "tweaks" and still stay keto. I'm addicted to the energy and being done with brain fog by being keto, thank you!
