Self-Care Keto

Self-Care Keto

By Jessica Reid
I’m Jess, and I eat keto as a form of self-care. After keto transformed my physical and mental health, I knew I wanted to help other women to experience the same. I've been a weight loss coach since 2017, and I started this podcast on a mission to serve a larger audience with free helpful content pairing a keto diet with mindset and motivation coaching.

Why your mindset is as important as your diet
We have a special episode of the podcast this week! Join me and my fellow keto coach Evy The Keto Babe as she interviews me about the ketogenic diet and mindset. This one is a longy but a goody - so turn your podcast player to double speed and get through it in half the time. :) We talked about how we can improve our mindset in order to achieve our goals. We shared some tips and tricks on how to overcome self sabotage and reflect on emotional eating. We also discussed on how to ease into keto when just starting out and how to implement exercise and stay motivated.

Overcoming low self-worth (why we don't set boundaries pt 4)
Usually emotional eating stems from either an UNMET need or an UNSET boundary. While eating keto helped me sooo much to change WHAT I eat when I emotionally eat, it wasn’t until I started working on my own self-care that I was able to reduce how often I was emotionally eating. Today we’re unpacking another common reason that we don’t set boundaries: we have low self-worth. Stay tuned! Wednesdays at 9 am EST.

Please don't compensate
I don’t believe in ever compensating with restriction or fasting after emotional eating, an unplanned deviation, or even a planned deviation. You’ve heard me talk about fasting, but I want to make it 100% clear that I ONLY fast when it is PLANNED, never to compensate. Compensating comes from a mindset of lack, fear, and scarcity. It only leads to misery, rebellion, and repeating. We are trying to punish ourselves or erase what happened. Let’s not erase it. Let’s LEARN from it. You are not what you weigh. You are how you show up for yourself today. Learn more at theketofit.com Get your FREE Keto Kickstart PDF at bit.ly/ketokickstartpdf Sign up for a FREE curiosity call at bit.ly/freecuriositycall
