No Wrong Questions

Lately  I have been getting a bunch of awesome messages from people who have found the blog and decided to have a little read of it. I love that. I love hearing from you guys, honestly it is radical. A few of the questions I have been getting have been the same, So I thought maybe other people are wondering it too... So. What do I do? Write a F.A.Q blog post, because you know, that makes sense to me. So here is the first installment. My guess is there will be more to come, and thats ok too!

How old are you, and how much weight have you lost?
I am 25 years old and so far, I have lost about 14 kilos since March 2014.

How much do you weigh?
I could say all sorts of things here but actually, I am just not ready to talk about that publically and that is ok. I weigh more than I should, but I am also not defined by that number on those scales.

Why do you blog?
At the end of the day this is about my journey. I write because its therapeutic, and because it keep me on track. But if you can take something away from it, then that is even more radical in my books.

You were eating to a paleo template before, and now follow keto. Whats with all the chopping and changing?
Most of my adult life I have been thinking about being on a diet. Me and the Fad diets have been frenemies for a while. Weightwatchers, Jenny Craig, Blood Type Diets, Counting Calories, Meal Replacements, Supplements. I’ve done a lot.

In 2013 I learnt about paleo nutrition and I implemented it into my life. I have some small wins, but I lost focus. March 2014 rolled around and I was introduced to Rapid through my radical friend Hells. Honestly, it is fairly similar to how I was eating when following a paleo template, with increased fats.

So in answer to the question, you know, sometimes it takes a little while to find the thing that works for you. But when you find it you know.

Will Rapid/Keto work for me?
Honestly, I can't tell you that... But what I can say is this. I tried a whole lot of stuff before I found keto., and none of it worked for me. That's not to say it won't work for you. I know people who have had great success doing other stuff, and I know people who have had amazing success eating keto. What I love about rapid is that it is structured, it is supported through an amazing community of staff and members and it is based on science. Someone once told me if you follow the plan, you can't not lose. Science doesn't lie. I know when I follow the plan it works.

Whats the deal with you and Rapid?
No deal. I am not endorsed or financially affiliated to rapid. I was introduced to the business by my rad friend Hells, who tested the programme out earlier this year. Then I bought the programme, and now I am using the programme. Thats it.

Do you really eat a lot of butter and bacon?
I know you have images of me layering butter and bacon on a plate and munching away. It’s not quite like that. Yes, I eat bacon in this diet, but probably only once or twice a week. Yes I cook with butter and yes it is awesome. Good fats are key to getting your body into Ketosis, so along with butter, most meals will be accompanied with some nuts, coconut cream, coconut oil, olive oil, sour cream, mayo,  or my favourite friend, avocado.

Ok so you eat fat. What else though? It sounds like its pretty restrictive?
Have y'all seen my instagram? Seriously? I think my food looks damn tasty, and honestly it is not that restrictive. I don't have bread, or pasta or potatoes. But you know what, that stuff isn't great for you anyway, so I made the choice to put my health first.

I am actually going to do a little what I eat in keto post soon, but, for a quick run down, my diet consists of good fats, delicious fresh veges, a few berries for some sweetness and a good whack of protein in every meal. I've given up soda and candy and almost every sort of takeaway because there isn't a healthy good option. And I am ok with it. Actually, when I am in it, I love it. So yeah. I actually eat a lot.

Your food looks amazing, Can I have the recipe?
If the recipe is available heck yes you can, and I will always link it where possible. But honestly the majority of the recipes that I follow come straight out of Rapid 2.0 courtesy of Miss Gray Souffle. So you will have to get your hands on the programme to get all the tasty goodness inside.

Do you take any supplements?
Each morning with breakfast I take Magnesium, Chromium Picolinate, Fish oil and a multi vitamin. I also use a pea protein for my smoothies, and loving earth coconut oil.

So that is round one. Is there anything burning you want to ask that you haven't yet? I am so more than happy to answer anything! And hey, I might just do another little one of these round up posts again soon.
