It is hard to believe but we were making our 2020 resolutions just 3 weeks ago. (Yeah, it’s only been that long…) If you are like many of us, it may be time for some adjustments or resets or possibly a swift kick in the rear. It’s ok, those resolutions are hard to stick to. Don’t worry though, we’ve got a great challenge going on that you can still join to help you stick to that healthier lifestyle you resolved to maintain.
Evolve’s Keto Challenge is ongoing and it is not too late to sign up. We will help you every step of the way to get your body into ketosis and kickstart that fat loss you’ve been wanting. The best part of the challenge is that it offers meals, snacks, support and 50% off the supplements you need to make sure ketosis works for you.
When your body enters ketosis it becomes a literal fat-burning machine. Instead of reaching for simple sugars and carbs to get its energy, your body has to work harder and use the fat you’ve been storing. That fat burns up as your body’s energy source and you will probably notice weight loss as a great side effect.
If you’ve been reading about the keto lifestyle and keep seeing a few not-so-awesome other side effects like diarrhea and “keto flu” cited by some, maybe you’ve decided this challenge isn’t for you. While transitioning to healthier eating always has a bit of an on ramp, there are ways to help mitigate the more common bumps in the road and get you on your way to feeling fantastic.
Supplements While Eating Keto
Luckily there are a range of supplements available that can often help alleviate the more common “keto flu” symptoms. Sometimes eating more fruits and vegetables can affect your digestive system while your body gets used to breaking down whole foods. Your body may need some digestive enzymes to help break things down and prevent constipation. Or, you may need extra fiber if you’ve had a week of meat and egg heavy meals and things are moving too quickly out of your system.
Magnesium, found naturally in dark-green leafy vegetables, beans and whole grains, may be difficult to maintain with a keto meal plan if spinach and collards are not your favorite foods. Taking a magnesium supplement can help maintain strong bones, keep blood sugar levels steady and build your immune system. Omega-3 fatty acids, which you can get from eating fish, are important to help maintain good cholesterol levels. Sometimes the keto lifestyle feels like an all-you-can-eat bacon buffet (it isn’t) and all that saturated fat isn’t the best for health. Balancing the bacon with great veggies and fruits plus adding omega-3s will help prevent skyrocketing cholesterol levels.
As you look into trying the keto challenge for 30 or 45 days, rest assured Evolve will provide the healthy balance of great food, fun snacks and the support you need to succeed. We take the guess work out of a healthy lifestyle. And, use that 50% off supplements benefit to help you stay healthy throughout the process. If you stick with Evolve meals, you’ll be on the road to getting all the nutrients you need from great-tasting whole foods. But, since we all know there will be moments of weakness, keep those supplements on hand to help stay the healthy course.
