My Thoughts on Keto Diet and why Massage is great for you

                    

How many people have tried to lose weight and wind up with a big fat monthly bill on their credit card for diet plans. I bet you all know only too well what I am talking about. How many of you have been caught where you join up as a first time member and you start your diet feeling hungry and miserable tired, low on energy because you can only have a shake for your meals and some ridiculous diet plan that wouldn't even be enough to feed a cat Although you do lose weight and  you do stick with the diet plan you eventually end your membership and go at it on your own. And when you do go off the plan and start eating normally again that’s when the weight comes back double of what you were originally,leaving you back at square one feeling stressed at having to try loosing the weight gained on top of your original size. Well I’m going to try help save you a fortune and give you some good advice. Number one, go visit your doctor and get all your bloods and cholesterol checkups first and ask your doctor about the Keto diet.

Starting a weight-loss plan is a awesome way for you to be serious about taking the first step to living a healthier lifestyle.So  if you've decided you want to try out the high-fat low- carb diet, better-known as the fat burning- Ketogenic Diet. Whether it's to lose weight, have more energy, or fuel workouts differently, going keto is a popular choice right now. But figuring out a keto meal plan on your own is no easy task, especially since eating a diet super high in fats doesn't come naturally to many people who are accustomed to the carb- heavy based meals. (It's especially hard if you're vegan and want to try Keto.) But this should help: Keto experts will  explain how to set yourself up for success, plus provide ideas for exactly what keto foods to eat when you're first getting started. 

 

            Why Massage is important.

It’s always easy to forget about your emotional health while focusing and planning a new diet and exercise regime and determining your weight-loss success. Massage is a great role for supporting you through your mental and emotional health. You can treat yourself to a massage as a reward as it is a great way to relax and unwind emotional stresses and anxiety.  Your massage therapist will be a great support keeping you positive and its alway's great to have someone to celebrate and share your success with.

Massage is the best way to nurture and make you feel good about yourself.When you feel good about yourself you will feel positive and won’t engage in a negative and unhealthy lifestyle choices.Through embracing the unique ability that touch has to make us feel, comfortable, and at peace. “Very often, those who are obese or overweight become anti social and isolate themselves. They become disconnected from others. This disconnection continues a downward spiral of low self-worth and unhealthy living. Massage is a great way to fill in that gap and rebuild,getting you to create a healthy life from the ground up.All bodies are different in size, shape, and believe me no bodies are perfect!! that is why it is great we are all unique and have unique needs. All bodies deserve to be nurtured.”

Regular massage is all about reconnecting with your body and getting back into yourself. As you continue to take time out to relax and care for your body through regular appointments, you’ll naturally become more aware of your body’s needs and more motivated to meet them.

Here are a few tips that I hope will help put you onto the right track. But I do warn you now you will gain weight and that will be in the area of your purse or wallet!!! My best advice to everybody ask your doctor about the Keto diet . I really suggest joining  Keto groups as I have found them really supportive and great with suggesting recipes etc. Optifast shakes are great but cost around $48 New Zealand Price for a box Opti Fast Shakes i use for my deserts and in recipes for sweet snacks avoiding sugar. Honestly the reason i am saying this is because I’ve been there done it and I now am on my own journey living a healthier lifestyle making healthier choices.  they are great for fat bombs desserts as they are so tasty.

Here is my quick fix chocolate no bake recipe
