Here's a little tip for travelers.

Over the last 10 days, I flew across 14 time zones (7 time zones for each flight) ... 17 hours flying time from Sydney to Dallas and then another 17 hours back again 10 days later. I've done a LOT of long-haul flights over the years, and usually jetlag and swelling just go hand in hand with them, as any of you who have experienced a long haul flight would know.

This time, zero jetlag, zero swelling, in both directions. How is this possible?

I did a shortish flight about a year ago and did a little experiment by fasting for a few hours prior to the flight and also while I was on board. Jetlag on this flight would have been minimal anyway (only crossing 3 time zones), but i was surprised to see that my jetlag was nil, and also that my swelling wasn't impacted like it usually was. (I have lymphedema, so it doesn't take much at all for things to get out of control with the swelling.)

So for this trip, I decided to fast for 24 hours prior to departure, and also for the duration of the flight - 41 hours in total. And when I say fast, I mean water and salt only. On the return leg, I fasted for 28 hours in total.
It wasn't hard at all and the results are pretty astounding. You might like to give it a try for your next long-haul if you don't want your life to slow down or stop at your destination because of jetlag and swelling!

Clients Love Ketovangelist Coaching!

Whether part of a limited time group or continuing month-to-month coaching, Ketovangelist Coaching clients have great things to say about their coaching experiences!

Thank you so much for this class. After following keto groups for two years I thought I knew it all. Boy was I wrong! I am totally off of sweeteners, I learned how to intermittently fast properly, that carbs are more than just grains and sugars, that veggies are not necessary, how salt and magnesium are so important, and mostly being in a space of like-minded people! There is so much more that I can’t list them all. Thank you ladies Mary Roberts and Katrina Harris for taking the time and really caring about helping others get healthy. I will miss seeing you every week.

For a person who has struggled all her life with yo-yo diets for the first time since finding keto and Ketovangelist Coaching I can say I have officially committed to a lifestyle of eating. After 1.5 years of being strict keto I am still learning from the coaches. I stick with Ketovangelist because of the knowledge, support, and guidance they provide.

I went through menopause at 40 and began to really struggle with my weight. I was no longer seeing success with the "normal" weight loss plans that had worked in my 20s and 30s and I was at my wit's end. I hired Katrina as my coach because I could not wrap my head around eating fat. I was terrified I would do it wrong and continue to gain. Figuring out the food ended up being the easy part - fixing my thinking and setting reasonable expectations for MY unique journey was where coaching was truly invaluable. I was a relatively slow loser and having Katrina help me understand why my progress was slow helped me stay the course. She also encouraged me focus on the non-scale benefits of Keto such as better sleep and no more aches and pains instead of being singularly focused on the scale. Thanks to Keto, I now feel better than I did in my 20s! Courtney (48 years old).

I've been vegan (even raw and fruitarian) and vegetarian for around 15 years. When I turned 40, my body just struggled. My hair fell out in clumps, my skin was very dry and felt like crepe throughout the day, my body was tired. Most people come to keto wanting to lose weight but, with Mary's help, I focused on nourishing myself. Mary taught me to trust the process and just eat to hunger. That was tough for me: I was afraid of eating so much, I was afraid of all the fat and calories. After a couple of months, I did gain weight but that came with thick hair, moisturised and nourished skin, abs that I never thought I could have, and no more carb face. I highly recommend getting a Ketoevangelist Coach and being part of this knowledgeable and supportive group!
