There is much to unlearn and learn to successfully recover from 'metabolic sickness' through a low carb lifestyle pattern.
Please complete the following steps prior to your consultation appointment with your healthcare provider.
You might expect to find a list of recipes in this "How To" section but the MetabolicHealth Program is not a cookbook.
The goal of the MetabolicHealth Program is to teach you HOW to eat. That is, how to make or recognize a well formulated, low carhoydrate, high fat, ketogenic meal. Once you understand the components of a well-formulated meal (ie. you have learned to fish), there are MANY resources including websites and cookbooks that will help you decide WHAT to eat (so you can feed yourself for the rest of your lifetime).
NEW FEBRUARY 2021:
Beginning February 2021, I have personally ordered a 1 year subscription to a website, which provides receipes for ketogenic meals. I am hoping this will help me answer the question: so what should I eat?
Patients don't fail at keto because it is not an effective strategy for weight loss and blood sugar control. They fail because they either don't know what to eat or get into a rut of eating the same things over and over. To combat this, you must develop a robust catalog of delicious keto meals.
The subscription cost just over $170 CND for 1 year of customized, three recipes per day, with grocery lists (vegan/vegetarian available too). Please note that I have NO association with this company and I have bought a subscription as any other client would. If you try it, let me know what you think (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can let other patients know. If you find other websites, programs or cookbooks you like, happy to hear about those too!
If you wait until after you have started to make dietary change, we will miss the opportunity to measure your baseline laboratory profile.
This is 2.5 hours of recording broken over 10 videos and builds on the concepts presented in the handbook.
The American Diabetes Assocation recommends a low carbohydrate, high fat dietary pattern for patients with diabetes while Diabetes Canada does not.
This handbook holds nothing back. It is all the secetes to success. Read it twice, cover to cover.
The New Atkins for a New You is an excellent reference written by extremely well-published authors.
The First Appointment Questionnaire is included in the MetabolicHealth Program Toolkit or you may be provided a weblink in an email for on-line completion from your healthcare provider.
