Enjoying Bulletproof aka Hot Buttered Coffee for Weight Loss

I thought I'd share something I've been doing for a couple of months now that has been helpful to me in achieving my weight loss goals. I was 155 lbs. at my highest weight and not liking it one bit.  I got to 154 very slowly then started to check out other ways of losing the weight and found the Ketogenic way of eating and switching my metabolisim from being a carbohydrate burner (gasoline) to burning ketones (diesel).   As the video will explain how I got started drinking Hot Buttered Coffee, I won't go into that here. But, my weight is now 137.

Other ways of making Bulletproof coffee are to add Coconut Oil in conjunction with the butter or on it's own, as well as to use heavy cream.  Mind you, a coffee with butter or oil and heavy cream will add up in calories but if you are burning ketones as fuel (like running on diesel instead of gasoline) the extra calories will be burned off to give you energy and mental clarity.

Check out the video and I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have about how the Ketogenic way of eating has helped me.  Remember that if you have any underlying illness such as diatetes, do not start any kind of new diet without being under supervision of your physician.  This video is not meant as medical advice, only to share with you what has worked for me.  Thanks for visiting with me today.

Blessings,
Carol

Here is the link to the video.  Blogger says it's too long to upload.....guess I talked too long (not surprising).

Got the Muchies? Try some Moon Cheese!

Found this great new thing to replace those potato chips I don't eat anymore because I still need to crunch from time to time.  One can only eat so many macadamias or almonds so that's when you turn to the Moon Cheese, crunchified 100% natural cheese.  I love the Pepper Jack!  And zero carbs!



Not easy to find in stores. Wal-mart here sells it online though so I ordered myself 3 packs. A great replacement for croutons on salad, too.

Sorry, gotta go crunch.....

10 Minute Tai Chi Lesson - Amazing! Great for Beginners



Did this one yesterday afternoon while searching for an easy beginners video.  A good one for sure.  Remember you don't have to go as deep, or keep legs as wide, or lift as high as Jake.  It's all at your own pace.

Good luck!

10 Tai Chi Moves for Beginners - 14 Minute Daily Taiji Routine





Did you know 15 minutes of Tai Chi is equal to a 20 minute walk.  Too hot to walk today so I did my Tai Chi.  How about you?   This is a great video to get you started with this wonderful form of exercise also known as "moving meditation."  I recently read an article that said Tai Chi is great exercise for those with Fibromyalgia.  I have been doing Tai Chi for about 10 years now and still enjoy it very much.   I hope you'll check out Jace Mace's video even if you don't try Tai Chi.  The beautiful scenery and music is very relaxing.



Have a beautiful day, friends.
