Every since I was diagnosed with high cholesterol (like crazy high) and my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis I’ve been taking a hard look at how food impacts our health. I’ve always eaten a fairly healthy diet – dark chocolate and red wine are healthy – but I felt like I needed to really start digging more into that impact diet has on chronic disease.
I started looking at Keto diets – not because it seems as if that’s what every celebrity is doing right now and everyone’s talking about it. I know very little about the Keto diet so I wanted to find a site that lays it all out for me.
Enter Kiss My Keto. For those of you like me who want to improve your health and understand what Ketosis is all about, this site is for you. Here you can find Ketocademy, modules that walk you through how to get started and what to expect.
What’s the hype about Keto?
So why Ketosis? Well for starters it’s simply the way your body wants to be – burning fat instead of sugar which improves your metabolism and reduces your risk of disease. It curbs oxidative stress and inflammation which are major drivers of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
It’s all laid out clearly on the Kiss My Keto site along with recipes and products. The company sent me a box of their variety pack Keto Bars which included Chocolate Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Chocolate Coconut. Putting Keto aside for a moment I have to say that hands down these are the tastiest bars I’ve ever tried! The chocolate on the outside tasted like good chocolate, not the fake taste some bars have. The only thing to note is its best to keep these bars in the refrigerator because the chocolate melts quickly.
My daughter is probably more picky than I am about protein bars and she also loved them. Note – these bars are not vegan. They contain egg and milk as well as Stevia which some people might not like but I didn’t find it overly sweet, especially in the peanut butter one which was hands down my favorite.
Otherwise, they have healthy fats from coconut oil, fibers, and sunflower lecithin.
I hadn’t really spent much time on the site before sampling the bars but it really is a one-stop-site for all information about Keto.
Will I buy more products?
I’ve been warned that while you do get an energy boost from going into Ketosis you still experience brain fog so I need something to keep my energy up in the afternoon. I’m a big coffee drinker so that next thing I’ll be trying is the coffee which they note is a good energy boost pre-work out so I figure it will do the trick for the afternoon slump.
A Keto diet is going to be tough if I don’t at least get my hubby to go along with me but the benefits of reducing oxidative stress and inflammation for helping with his MS symptoms are huge. He loved the bars so we’re on the road. Stay tuned…..
