Time to Give Back: Sponsor a Bootcamp Program

The Sponsor a Bootcamp Program

 

Hello guys;

As some of you are aware, Ketogains runs a fairly successful group coaching program – the Ketogains Bootcamps – in which we educate, empower and help people achieve changes in body composition and mindset.

So far, just over the last year, we have helped over 2,000 people improve their health and habits with our protocols (both via personalized and group coaching).

However, this is “private” coaching that of course, has a price – Ketogains is a business with expenses, after all – so not everyone is able to pay the enrollment…

Ketogains Kitchen – On “Rapid Fat Loss” and Making the Process Enjoyable

On Rapid Fat Loss and its Implications

 

Rapid fat loss could for a small sized man or woman implicate a daily caloric intake as low as 800-1200 Kcal.

In this case, adherence to the diet can be challenging and going for a whole food based PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) has been found to help people achieve a higher sense of satiety. However, humans are subjected by a multitude of external stressors (a sense of deprival due dieting, your job, family, etc.) that can compromise the compliance to a low calorie diet, raising the probability to start a binge…

Ignorance Is But A Choice

I want to share this quote here, especially with the influx of new people who have just recently joined the various online groups we manage:

“In the age of information, ignorance is a choice” – Donnie Miller

One of the main reasons that got me into nutrition and fitness in the first place, and eventually led me to found Ketogains, was to learn to differentiate between sound, science based nutrition, and “old wives tales” or classic bro’science.

Everybody has seen the recent influx of a number of self called “Keto Trainers” or “Ketogenic Coaches” as well as…

HUNGER

Because this has to be said, my shower-thought of the day:

I see a lot of people complaining about “hunger” when dieting – “I’m doing a ketogenic diet… why am I hungry? – I read I should not feel hunger on a ketogenic diet”…

Well, let me tell you: Hunger is not necessarily a bad thing.

Guys & Gals: have we become so “cognitive dissonant” and complacent, that we have forgotten that hunger is, in a way, a natural part of the process of any diet that the main focus is fat loss???

Any diet, be it keto or high…

quote about difficult things

Do Difficult Things Every Day and Triumph

Do Difficult Things Every Day.

 

This is going to be a short post, mostly because the concept can be summed up in those five words.  At a round table Q&A at our recent conference there was a question which was asked related to breaking through mental barriers – how do you do it.  The truth is I wish I had a better answer for the inquirer than I did at the time, but it did give me something to think about the entire next day.  What is it about some people who seem to “smash it”…

Metabolic Advantage, Red Herrings, and the Battle of the Diets

The recent publication of the full text of Kevin Hall’s pilot study on ketogenic vs non-ketogenic weight-reduction diets has sparked a blog battle that doesn’t seem to have any end in sight. It gives reason, apparently, to discuss at least a couple points: Do ketogenic diets have a metabolic advantage over other diets? Are ketogenic diets superior to ordinary diets?

It also gives us reason to wonder about few other ideas:

The significance of honest reporting Study design and limitations The significance of bias

Before I spend too much time…
