Just eat less.
The weight will simply fall off, right? Not really. This approach slows down your metabolism, may cause nutrient deficiencies, and relies on willpower. This inevitably leads to slip ups, greater weight gains than where you started, and loss of confidence in your body and around food.
A one-size-fits-all solution. There’s no single, magic formula that works for everyone. Factors like age (especially for those of us over 40), your metabolic type, and unique nutritional requirements all play a role in determining the best approach for you. Any diet that fails to take this into account is bound to fail you. That's why we have an optional Keto Cleanse track for people who have the sensitivity to carbohydrates and want to harness the power of the healthy version of a high-fat, low-carb eating style.
Count calories, carbs, etc. Maintaining this level of perpetual planning, deprivation, and discipline is simply unsustainable and often leads to over-indulgence and self sabotage — what we call the “boomerang” effect. In other words, a lot of hard work for little or no results.
Inflammatory foods and supplements. Most diets lack a system for identifying foods that can cause inflammation and prevent weight loss. Many of these foods, like whey protein, are hidden ingredients in so-called “health food” supplements. This is particularly important for our optional Keto Cleanse track; most people are doing Keto completely wrong, loading up with inflammatory foods that can cause harm.
No detoxing protocol. Toxins are stored in fat and can interfere with proper metabolism. So as you’re changing your eating habits, it’s important to properly detox so that weight loss you realize can be maintained.
Ignores gut health. Your gut is where the metabolic process begins. An unhealthy gut can negatively influence your ability to metabolize fat and achieve long term, sustainable weight loss.
Lack of meal timing. When you’re over 40, it’s not just about what to eat but when to eat. If you don’t know the eating rhythm that works with your metabolism (not against it), you’ll miss this critical step in reaching and maintaining your weight loss goals.
