easy as 1-2-3
Attend one of our upcoming workshops to learn how you can live a healthier lifestyle and enjoy the benefits of a ketogenic diet today.
The Ketogenic Diet, “keto” was developed in the 1920s, by a team of physicians at the Mayo Clinic. The goal of the ketogenic diet is to induce ketosis, a metabolic state in which the body, burns fat as its primary fuel. This is accomplished by limiting the amount of dietary carbohydrates. The liver responds by converting fat into water-soluble molecules called ketone bodies. Ketone bodies, commonly referred to as ketones take the place of glucose as an energy source.
The ketogenic diet has the potential to decrease blood glucose levels. Managing carbohydrate intake is often recommended for people with type 2 diabetes because carbohydrates turn to sugar and, in large quantities, can cause blood sugar spikes.
Other health benefits of a ketogenic diet may include:
- Aids in weight loss.
- Reduces inflammation.
- Can improve heart health.
- Can improve health in women with PCOS.
- May reverse type 2 diabetes.
The keto 1-2-3
Keto 1-2-3 is a medical designed three step weight management protocol originally developed to help aspiring Marine Recruits qualify for military service. Today, nearly 31% of Americans age 17-24 do not qualify for military service due to obesity. Keto 1-2-3 is designed to help recruits reach their shipping weight while preserving maximum muscle mass.
With Keto 1-2-3 clients quickly and effectively adapt to ketosis, lose fat and then enjoy a stable lifestyle of maintenance. Keto 1-2-3 is unique because it is entirely based upon whole foods and does not use exogenous ketones, protein powders or manufactured foods.
Our certified coaches will hold you accountable each step of the way as you become accustomed to your new healthy lifestyle. Following the steps as they are designed will allow your body the time it needs to adapt to your new lifestyle and accomplish your health goals.
Transitioning from a life fueled by carbohydrates to one fueled by fats has tremendous health benefits, but can be traumatic if not implemented properly. First, your coach will review your health history to determine if you have any contraindications to a ketogenic lifestyle. Then you will begin a two-week period introducing healthy fats and proteins to fuel your body and sustain your muscle mass.
Our coaches will evaluate your health history, activity profile and health goals, to determine your caloric balance, create a deficiency, and set your macros. Our goal is to help lose fat, not just weight! To make this happen we will help you establish your protein goals and monitor your body fat percentage. You will meet weekly with your coach to evaluate your progress and to motivate you to help you achieve your goals.
If you return to the lifestyle that was successful for your initial weight gain you can expect it to be successful once again! In Step three your coach will set you up for long term success by determining your caloric balance and specific macro nutrient intake to keep the weight off. You will meet with your coach biweekly at first, but then monthly and as needed as you become accustomed to your new healthy lifestyle.
