The Ketogenic Diet Mini-Course with Dr. Berg

I had another keto post planned, but, I’m struggling today, due to a severe case of keto induced insomnia, which I’ll talk about in my Fit by 50 journal on Thursday.  Due to sleep deprivation, I’m WAY behind schedule today….So, I decided to post Dr. Berg’s mini-course videos here for you. They are short, ranging from 5 – 12 minutes.  Look for my planned article: “Dirty keto vs Clean keto: Are you doing it right?”, next Monday. Okay…on with the course!



Why Does Keto Work?

Video overview (video length, 5:07)… This video discusses insulin resistance and how the ketogenic diet helps this issue. He says, if you’ve tried to lose weight, and the pounds stubbornly stay on, the keto diet is the one for you.

How To Do Ketosis

Video overview (video length, 8:07) – What to avoid and what to include in your new ketogenic diet eating plan. (one key to this…EAT 7-10 CUPS OF VEGGIES…DO NOT COUNT VEGGIE CARBS IN YOUR CARB COUNT!!)

How To Achieve Keto Adaption & Intermittent Fasting

Video overview (video length, 12:07)  In this video, he discusses the benefits of the keto diet, the adaptation period and how to avoid the keto flu. (hint…eat your veggies). Just FYI, the information portion of this video lasts approximately 8 minutes. After that, he discusses his book and supplements.

Closing thoughts…

I love this series. It’s very informative and quick to watch. (about the length of a sit-com in total). Don’t just jump into the KETO diet after watching this. I advise you to do your own research. I’ll be discussing my own keto journey on Thursday and will be posting another keto article next week.

Until next time… Namaste my friends

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. Wow, what an eye opener on the process of this diet. Good to know there are supplements to get you through the journey. I usually eat 80% raw foods and 20% protein. Lately, I have been doing 100% raw, but it’s hard in these frigid NYC temperatures. xx

    1. Yes, there’s lots involved in the keto diet. So many ppl just jump in without research, not recommended. I tried a 100% raw diet once, I couldn’t do it. I highly respect anyone who can do it long term, cause it’s not easy. I try to fill half my plate with veggies, not always raw though. I admire your ability to stick to that type of diet. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. 😊🙏
