    I have been doing this keto diet now for aa year. The past few months I have lost the energy I use to have. I am 5kg below my goalgoal weight. Still fasting intermittently and doing that now with black coffee to not break my fast. Any suggestions to get the energy back @Bumblebabe?

    Hi @Friep
    Well done so far.

    Inbox my your weight hight age and waist cm. And starting weight.
    A tipical meal or two. Any meds you are on now or was on.

    Being on Keto (not my favorite) you can exhaust your adrenals.

    When you say 5kg below goal weight, is that your goal or the recommended weight for your height? If you are now under weight there is a whole new can of worms opening. Women need at least 23-24% body fat to maintain hormone balance. Men about 21-22%.
    If you are on Keto you are starving your body of sugar (this is a good thing), but if you do not consume enough fat and your body has used up its body fat reserves, it will start using your muscles for energy.

    So I need a bit more info to help you out

    Monitoring a client’s progress I can suggest B vitamin complex or adding D3 or omega 3, all depending on where you are.

    Let me know so we can get your energy back up

    I read an interesting book regarding these diets. They did studies and had similar results by cutting fat and increasing carbs and protein.

    Will watch the webinar for sure!

    @Spyro Most "usual" diets cut fat - that's why there's an abundance of low-fat items on supermarket shelves. Personally, I prefer Banting simply because I'm diabetic (says she, having just devoured a slab of chocolate) so cutting carbs is something I usually do anyway.

    It's the increase in fat that most people can't get their head around with Banting. Whoever heard of a diet where you may - no should - eat the fat on a lamb chop, or have bacon for breakfast?? I tell you, Banting is a wonderful lifestyle!

    However, I think the main culprit is the combination of fat and carbs. That is what is so unhealthy - and makes people gain weight. So I guess reducing one of them, whichever is one's personal choice, would be a good thing.

    I sure hope you watched

    Any diet will work, purely because most cut out processed junk food first. As soon as you do that in any diet, anyone will lose weight.
    However, consider this, low fat is a process a natural food is put through to take out the fat, then it taste like cardboard, so they add sugar and chemicals. What are you left with? Processed junk.
    This is why 70% of the world population is overweight, under nourish, got diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, dementia, cancer and the list goes on and on.

    Now the new theory is to eat the food as it comes. Full cream milk, butter (whisk the milk and tada), eat the whole animal (incl fats and organs), 3/4 of you plate is above group veggies.
    Cut out seed oils, chemicals and sugars, highly processed foods, over produced grains, and no underground veggies.

    Totally back to nature.

    We do not walk around all day eating fat. The media has blown it all out of proportion and calling it a high fat, high protein diet, while it’s far from that.
    We teach Whole Foods as natural as possible.

    I personally advice staying away from anything on the shelves marked as gluten free, sugar free, Banting or keto. Unless you know the person producing these products, you’re not guaranteed that it’s save to use.
    Real food do not last for months on the shelves.

    My next webinar is 24 April, I try to focus more on making a new lifestyle permanent and changing the way we see food.
    Join the next one, I would love some challenging questions :--)
