Keto for Beginners. Benefits of a Ketogenic Diet With Paula Williams
Welcome to the Conquer Food Podcast with Craig and Paula Williams where we share tips, tricks, and strategies from the coalface of the weight loss industry in the UK. We are going to help you to think, eat and move better. Ultimately, we’re going to help you finally gain control and Conquer Food.
We’ve got a great guest today, my beautiful wife and business partner, Paula, who is also the founder and lead coach and the Conquer Food Programme.
I want to talk a bit about the food specifically. Paula, you lived a keto diet and ketogenic lifestyle for quite a while. You had some great results. Living on a ketogenic lifestyle at the time because you had a bad knee.
So you couldn’t do any exercise yet. You still lost weight and a ton of weight.
My weight is always secondary to my mental house. That’s the one thing that I’m constantly working on and when I’m in a state of ketosis my mental health becomes so much more improved.
It is incredible. So for me, When I’m not in a ketogenic state, what happens is I’m plagued by, sugar cravings and I think there’s a lot of people out there. I know, especially people I talk to who come to camp that, food becomes the thing that they think about from the minute they wake up to the minute they go to sleep.
There’ll be other people that say, Oh my God, really? Yes. Actually, really that’s, that’s a reality for a lot, lot of people. And, and a lot of people do suffer, with, with mental health problems and depression. And I think because, and I don’t know the exact science behind this, this Craig in too much detail, but what I do know is when your body is using the stores of fat that it already has, it doesn’t scream at you to fill yourself with carbohydrates.
