Are you struggling with hormonal imbalance, fatigue or not feeling satisfied on a keto diet? Trying to do it all perfectly and not getting results? Feeling stressed out or spread too thin between diet, fasting, exercise and your day-to-day stressors? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki explain why keto itself can be a stressor, especially for the type-A personalities out there who are trying to “do it all”! Plus we reflect all the exciting collaboration at KetoCon and our favorite vendors this year!
In this episode, Ali and Becki give a sneak peek of the recent article Ali wrote about carb cycling and leptin for hormonal balance and HPA-axis optimization. While a ketogenic diet can be incredibly therapeutic for many conditions and have favorable hormonal impacts in some, it can go terribly wrong for others if not listening to your body! Insomnia, increased anxiety, loss of menstrual cycle and constant hunger are just a few of the signs that you may need to adjust how you keto. Learn about the many roles of leptin, how to spot low leptin and how carb cycling can help reset your levels for successful outcomes on your high fat low carb diet!
