Good morning, folks. So, is it too soon to start looking ahead to 2020?
I’m joking. I’m on social media, I’ve seen all the posts urging, “There’s only ____ days left in this decade. What will you do to make it epic?!” (Feels like a little too much pressure, but maybe that’s just me.)
Still, the countdown to 2020 has begun, and I have a proposition for you….
How about this January, instead of the typical New Year’s Resolution to lose 20 pounds, go to the gym every single day, and give up wine cold turkey, you resolve to learn something? Specifically, what if you resolve to learn how to go keto and why I think the Primal approach is the healthiest, most well-rounded, and least stressful way?
And what if you resolved to do it with my help and with the support of the keto+Primal community? Did I mention I have a video—and a meal plan for it?
If your interest is piqued, I invite you to join my FREE January Keto Month, kicking off on January 6, 2020. It’s four weeks of daily emails from me covering everything you need to know to go keto the right way, plus amazing offers from Primal Kitchen® and a few of my favorite partners—and so much more.
EVEN if you did the Keto Reset with us last January or this June, you won’t want to miss it. I’ve got all new resources and freebies, plus a whole new set of prompts and exercises that will help you blend the best of keto eating with Primal living principles. It’s sure to be an awesome month!
Here’s the thing: eating ketogenically isn’t actually that complicated. You basically start with a Primal-aligned diet, then remove enough carbs to get yourself below 50 grams of carbs per day. Simple…but not easy. Where people go wrong is by failing to recognize that a keto diet only works when you do the “other stuff,” too. I’m talking:
Movement and exercise
Navigating social situations around food
Managing your time so you stay in control of your food choices
Building a knowledge base so you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to go keto
Just as the Primal Blueprint offers holistic lifestyle interventions because health involves more than just eating “right,” my approach to keto is about so much more than carbs. My books The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for Life are about food, of course, but they also illuminate the difference between going on a diet versus achieving your health and longevity goals.
I know you don’t just want to get into ketosis for ketosis’ sake. You want energy to play with your kids, mental clarity to tackle your work, physical fitness to get out and participate in the activities you love, and the promise of a long, healthy old age. That’s what the Primal approach to keto is all about, and I’ll be covering the full picture in January.
What’s Included in the January Keto Month
Last year we did two keto challenges, one in January and one in June. I got fantastic feedback from participants about the amount of knowledge and social support they enjoyed. I also listened when they asked for additions. One thing folks really wanted? Daily challenges to keep them on track and engaged with the process. And I’ll be delivering exactly that (and then some) in this January’s Keto Month.
Here’s what you’ll get when you sign up for this FREE (did I mention it’s free to sign up?) January Keto Month:
A daily email from me on a topic that will help you get the most out of keto. Some days I’ll do a deep dive into an important issue; other days I’ll address one of your FAQs.
Exclusive video content related to daily email topics.
NEW! A Daily Challenge Calendar with food and lifestyle activities for you to complete. Each day features one (sometimes two) action steps you can take to enhance your experience this month.
NEW! Daily journaling prompts that keep you engaged, mindful, and practicing gratitude throughout this process. I’ll be providing a digital Keto Month Journal for you to use.
Community support from our private Keto Reset Facebook community. My colleague Dr. Lindsay Taylor and the team of helpful and knowledgeable moderators will be there to answer all your questions.
You don’t have to be new to keto to get a lot out of this Keto Month. If you participated in past keto challenges, I encourage you to sign up again. The emails are entirely new. Plus, you’ll get enjoy the new daily challenges and a new journaling component.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Keto Month Sign-Up Bonuses
Everyone who signs up for Keto Month gets all the email and video content, Daily Challenge Calendar, Keto Month Journal, and community support free.
The best part is that I’ve created a SEVEN-DAY MEAL PLAN—yes, seven days of breakfasts, lunches, dinners plus snacks and bonus recipes that allow you to customize it to your needs—that use these Primal Kitchen products to make delicious, low-carb recipes. It’s never been easier to go keto. I did all the fussy macro calculations and menu planning for you. I even made a shopping list to go along with the recipes. It couldn’t be any easier.
