Hi I’m Leanne (the Holistic Nutritionist over at Healthful Pursuit) and I’ve gained the power to end food obsession + strict eating schedules by eating 200 grams of dietary fat per day. And, in the first 2 months eating this way, I lost 20 pounds. And now? I’m in the best (hottest) shape of my life.

Best part is? You can do it, too! Let’s go over the science, yes?
All forms of carbohydrate – fruits, vegetables, grains + starches, are broken down into glucose by your body, increasing your blood sugar. Your body considers raised blood sugar as being toxic, so it releases insulin (a storage hormone) to push the glucose into your cells. Once this occurs, your blood sugar decreases, making you hungry again.
This vicious cycle of blood sugar highs and lows is why you experience endless hunger + cravings. Click the video below to see how sugar causes Liver Disease, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity.
The release of insulin halts your body’s ability to release fat and toxins. If you’re eating carbohydrate-based foods every 2-3 hours, your body is never fully able to exercise its ability to rid itself of excess. And, if more carbohydrates are consumed than what your body needs, it will be converted into triglycerides and stored in your blood, leading to weight gain and unbalanced cholesterol.
But, when we lower our intake of carbohydrates, increase our consumption of glorious fats and moderate our protein intake, our blood sugar and insulin levels are reduced, levels of HDL cholesterol increase, and the visceral fats around your vital organs are “eaten up”. This is nutritional ketosis.
In nutritional ketosis, your body becomes a fat-burning machine, effectively breaking down fatty acids into ketone bodies that are used, even by the brain, as fuel. Studies show that nutritional ketosis has the potential of alleviating food cravings, blood sugar irregularities, mind fog, excess body weight, abnormal cell growth, psychological imbalances, infertility and more.
If what you’re doing isn’t working – if your hormones are crazy, weight isn’t coming off easily, your health is in shambles, or you just don’t feel right, dare to do something different.
