Do this simple 3 steps to get the body you've always wanted
1, Eat in a way that works with YOUR body. Some of you do well with keto, some of you do well with a vegetarian. Some people need more protein or fat and so on. And if you have insulin resistance, you need to cut your carbs way low until you become insulin sensitive. So the only way to find out is to try for at least a month and see how your body reacts. But so you know, the first 2,3 weeks are going to be hard no matter what you eat. It takes time for your body to adjust to a new way of eating. I remember way back when some personal trainer would make me a nutrition plan. 3 meals and 3 snacks. 32 grams of carbs, 28 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat. Total calories of 1200. And I had to do 45 minutes of incline interval treadmill. Mind you, I was not training for competition. Just wanted to lose weight and get fit. Sadly, I wasn't thinking about the health part. I just focused on how I looked, not how my body felt.

I've been on a Ketogenic diet for a couple of years now and I've made so many mistakes in the beginning. So today I want to talk about 5 biggest keto mistakes that beginners make so that you don't make same mistakes that I made. Sadly over and over again, I see that happen to so many people. So if you just stated ketogenic diet, stick around. And if you have been doing a little while, I am sure you can get something out of this video. Let's dive in.
1. You are looking for a quick fix
What? Don't we suppose to lose 10 pounds in 10 days?
Well yes and no. If you do, I guarantee it's just water weight.
Fat does not leave your body in 10 days. People ask me " How long do I have to be on Keto diet?' I say "for a long time."
For me, now I am completely fat adopted, someday, I allow myself to have sushi or sweet potato fries then I can go right back into ketosis in a couple of days. I am in ketosis, like a hybrid...
This is Tori, your certified health coach and creator of kick-ass life with tori.com. How are you guys? Today I want to talk about pizza and ice cream. Well I mean how to say no to pizza and ice cream. If you are like me, someone's always bringing donuts at work or moms are offering birthday cake at a kid's birthday party or your kids want you to make mac and cheese, order pizza and get some ice cream so you can't always tell them to eat steak and salad you know

Here are five simple strategies to help you stick to a healthy eating plan (even when you’re surrounded by non-dieting friends and loved ones).
1, Out of sight out of mind
The best way to avoid foods that you don't want to eat is not to buy them. So if you live alone, this is it. Don't invite your enemy into your house. Don't fool yourself by saying stuff like " I should have candies in case my sister bring her...

I hear sometimes people are complaining that they spent a lot of time in the gym working out so hard but they have not seen the result they want. But it turns out, they think they are burning a lot of calories because they did 1-hour cardio; they give themselves permission to eat A LOT. Or they just simply eat a lot of food that are not so good to eat. What are some of those foods that are not so good to eat if you want to lose weight?
1, Canola oil, corn oil, soy bean oil all vegetable oils
Canola oil contains hydrogenated oils, which cause inflammation throughout the entire body disrupting your hormones and metabolism. And 90% of canola oil is genetically modified (GMO), which means they are hard wired with pesticides that cause cellular toxicity, which destroys your bodies metabolism and overall health.
Instead: Use coconut oil, grass-fed butter to boost your metabolism. Coconut oil is mostly medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). It has been shown that breaking down...
I am in the mood for talking about relationships today….I found this article “Why Modern Relationships Are Falling Apart So Easily Today” I’ve been divorced for five years and I find myself doing and thinking the things that this article is addressing. Basically, it sums up all that today’s relationships. There is a sweet lady I love who just turned 80. A couple of years ago, she lost her husband of almost 60 years from Alzheimer. She told me she got married so young, she cried every night in the beginning and called her mom and asked her mom if she could come home. She said she was so scared…..Now her husband is gone, and she told me that she misses him so much and she still loves him so deeply….. This to me sounds like true love.
She didn’t have a choice to leave him, at least that was her reality and leaving him wasn’t even an option for her, But yet, she told me once she got to know him better, she started...
Hi, everyone. This is Tori from kickasslifewithtori.com. I have a question for you. When was last time you had a good night sleep like you can truly say you slept like a baby? Personally, I find myself waking up at least twice at night, and I wish I can get better sleep. If you are like me, all the moms out there, I am sure you can relate it. We are so used to wake up many times at night ever since we got our kids, even now, the slightest noise still wakes me up at night. So what are the benefit of getting a good night sleep? We know sleeping is important for us but do you know how important? I will tell you all about it today’s episode.
1, Sleep strengthens your immune system.
Studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, such as a common cold virus. Lack of sleep can also affect how fast you recover if you do get sick.
2, Sleep boost your mood
I don’t need to explain too much...
