Do I need to track my food? Can I eat more fat? Do you recommend portion control? What to do if I had a few bad days? How do I get a stronger willpower? After years of coaching family, friends, and the clients, these are possibly the questions I face most as a health and wellness coach on a daily…
The Keto diet is more than just the latest food fad to come along. If you’ve already been following a Paleo or Primal lifestyle, it might surprise you to find out how similar Keto is to them.

Hey, guys! My blog got nominated for a Blogger Recognition Award – woohoo!
Hey! Looking to get healthier? Quit sugar they say. Want to lose more weight and heal your gut? Stop eating gluten and grain-filled items. What people often forget is the fact what kind of oils we cook, add, and eat our meals with is important as well as these two. In fact, I would call them a trifecta of unhealthy living (sugar, gluten, and bad oils).
Lately, we talked about gluten, dairy intolerance (here), and today we will talk about industrial oils. Why did I avoid sugar as another topic for these series? Well, it’s kind of common sense, right? Ditching sugar is becoming conventional wisdom, whereas gluten, dairy, and fats still continue to have many ongoing debates. Are you eating the healthiest oils for your body?
Dairy intolerance: the low down
“Cheeeeeese” says Rocky from Chip’n’Dale Rescue Rangers with some crazy mustache action. You probably don’t know many people who are indifferent about cheese, ice cream, milk, or any other dairy products. Come on, who says “meh!” when looking at a cheese platter or pizza? That’s preposterous!
Dairy aisles are super long at stores, and often offer the variety that even beats vegetables and fruits. We often turn to eating dairy as a source of important vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats. Is dairy healthy though? Skim milk, full-fat products, or heavy cream – what to choose? Lactose, casein, intolerance, allergy or sensitivity? Do you tolerate dairy well, personally? Let’s talk about dairy intolerance, its variations, how dairy products can benefit your health, and how you can live and thrive with a dairy intolerance.
Are you tired of diets, hours in the kitchen, figuring out what’s healthy to eat to lose a few pounds?
Gluten has got a bad rap in the last decade. In fact, you can interpret it many ways. Gluten is bad for you, and they say gluten is not bad unless you are one of the rare few that have celiac (gluten intolerance disease). Let’s be honest, they (doctors, researchers, food enthusiasts) say exactly the same things about wine, chocolate, and life in general in the media and research. The wine has antioxidants and is good for you – but wine is alcohol (neurotoxin), addictive, poisonous, and evil. The research shows both sides of the argument, and then everything is covered by an “everything is good in moderation” hat. Everyone is happy and likes that hat because it puts the blame on someone else. Then we can go our ways and interpret “the facts” just the way we want.
Now, where is the truth though when it comes to gluten? Is a gluten-free diet a myth? Is gluten-free diet a myth that needs to be busted?
