Are you ready for a change? I can help you with that.

I watch several YouTube channels, and one of them, 2KrazyKetos, released their January challenge today and Rachel was rather adamant that it is not New Year, New You, but New Year, New Do. I understand her thoughts on this. So, I am going to go with it.

the challenge

Now, before I go further, my husband had decided to participate in the BBBE (Beef, Butter, Bacon, Eggs) challenge, a challenge put out there by Dr. Ken Berry, before we knew that the 2KrazyKetos were going to do this challenge again. They did the challenge for 46 days this past fall. So, two days ago, we went and had our labs done, and a DEXA scan. We will have the same done after 3 months of just eating BBBE. This is not a requirement for anyone and I would never tell you that you have to do this, so please don’t think that I am. This is strictly for my husband and I to see what happens. He will go back to Keto and I to Ketovore at the end of the 3 months.

Why are we doing this?

We are doing this as a reset, to retrain our thinking on food. Beef and butter happen to be excellent ways to heal your body, so why not give it a try. Dr. Berry promises that our body fat will not go up and our blood work should improve. Please note that I didn’t say our overall cholesterol will go down. For some, it will. I do not expect that for us, as for most, it will go up. I will do a blog about why that does not bother me, in the near future. We are hoping that this will remove some of the inflammation that has built up in my body by unknowingly eating soy. As I type this, my arthritis in my fingers is truly flaring, and we believe it to be the pork and chicken I’ve been eating. Hence, the challenge.

What is BBBE?

Dr. Berry and the 2KrazyKetos go over this, so I’ll make it brief.

  • Beef – Any beef or ruminant animal. This includes Bison, Elk, Sheep, etc. If you can incorporate liver and heart in some way, even better, as they have a ton of nutrients
  • Butter – Butter, or Ghee. The 2KrazyKetos are incorporating tallow, which I would classify under Beef.
  • Bacon – Bacon, or pork belly. There is debate over whether Dr. Berry means all pork or just bacon or pork belly. We are looking at it as, what is the fat content and is it high enough.
  • Eggs – Eggs are one of the more perfect foods. 1-to-1 ratio of protein to fat. This part is actually going to be a challenge for me, as I do not like eggs. So, my egg intake will be lower than most during this time.

New ‘Do’

Therefore, taking the phrase from Rachel at 2KrazyKetos, a new ‘Do’ is in order. Are you ready to start a new ‘Do’ for your life? Let me help you with that. As a certified Keto and Carnivore Health Coach, I can and will help you with that. Coach Bronson (affiliate link) would say: Get after it. 2022, here we come. We can do this, together.

Closing out 2021: Focus on Health in 2022

My apologies that it has been must longer since my last post then I intended. December has been quite a busy month for me. That being said, let’s talk about the future.

Just the other day, I received my official certification badges as a Keto and Carnivore coach. I intend, once I save some money, to take the supplement course and receive my certification in supplements as well. With the official certification, I will now be working on coaching people officially. The new year is perfect for that, yes?

Help me, help you

So, with that, what do you want to see in a Health Coach? I intend to customize my program as much as possible to meet the individuals needs. Why am I doing that? It’s actually rather simple. I have weird allergies (some not so weird) and quirks. For example, I’m allergic to soy and all soy derivatives, allergic to tomatoes, intolerant to gluten, and I cannot handle shakes/meal replacements. So, my weight-loss is extremely slow, while by body heals, first. And that is my goal as a coach, is to help you heal first. The weight-loss is a nice side benefit.

How this all started for me

In case you haven’t read my about me, let me talk about why I need to heal. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when things started going downhill for me, but I’ll start when I was a Senior in High School. Suddenly, my chest and lungs hurt a lot and I was coughing a lot. My mom took me to the doctor and he said that it was just my chest muscles from having to carry such a heavy backpack. We tried to explain to him that I didn’t carry a backpack, but he didn’t understand that.


Fast forward 10 years and the pain in my chest was really bad. I went to the doctor and his back up (my doctor was on vacation) ordered x-rays. I received a call that I had Pleurisy. So, I went back into the doctor’s office and as he opened the door to my exam room, I coughed. He asked me “How long have you had Asthma?” I told him I didn’t. He told me I did, as that cough was a classic asthma honk. Hmmm, this was new.


Fast forward another 15 or so years, I was having a hard time eating. I was feeling sick every time I ate. It got to a point that I couldn’t eat, as I started vomiting up blood. They started taking tons of tests, everything came out negative. The final test was swallowing a small camera to follow my digestive track. Results? Everything was working fine. Because of this, the doctor suggested I try an elimination diet. First three days, I could only have 6 saltine crackers a day. She advised us to look at all the ingredients and note when I reacted. My husband realized quickly that everything had soy in it. We confirmed my sensitivity to soy when I had my first cracker. It had soy flour, and I reacted. I immediately started making all my own food. Baking my own bread, making my own peanut butter, and my own chocolate even.

Why I went Keto

Fast forward to the last 4 years. My joints and whole body have just been getting worse and worse and more and more pained. Still struggled with eat, psoriasis and eczema were getting worse. I was at a loss on what to do. Then, Dec. 24, 2019, I woke up and could not move my legs. I was able to finally get them moved enough to get up and to the restroom. I had heard about Keto from a friend and had been looking into it for months. That morning, that was it, I made the decision to give it a try. Initially, I was only going to do Keto for 6 months, until I healed my body. I quickly realized that I have a long way to go to heal my body. I’m still healing. I can feel the inflammation, though it is not as bad as it was, and my stomach will tell me when the animal that I’m eating has been fed soy. So, I have to be extremely careful.

That brings us to today. After seeing the improvement that Keto and Ketovore has provided me, I want to be able to help others achieve that goal. I want to help you heal.

So, how can I coach you?
