Frequently Asked Questions
→ What are the ‘prizes’ for the Keto Challenge?
Everybody will be rewarded with the prize of better health, weight/fat loss, and inches gone! If you are entering for any other reason then this might not be the challenge for you.
→ Do I need to enter the Challenge if I only want to watch the webinar?
No you do not. The webinar and challenge will be sent to everybody who registers, but you do not need to enter.
Also you can simply do the challenge on your own without participation in the actual challenge. Although the accountability you will get by going through the actual challenge with others will be a lot higher.
→ What will I be eating?
Fat 🙂 The ketogenic diet is a very simple way of eating, but highly complex in that every person who does it needs to be customized. Some will be able to eat more carbs, some less. Some more protein, some less. It all depends on what you have done up to now in terms of your nutrition and health. Which is the reason we are not just letting people enter the challenge.
→ Isn’t Fat Bad For Your Health?
This is one of the biggest myths about nutrition. Fat is the preferred fuel source for your body, heart and brain. This is the main fuel source on the ketogenic diet.
Fat is not the deadly killer and causer of heart disease and stroke and everything else. The USDA got it wrong and are still to this day getting it wrong.
This will be the biggest misconception that we unveil in the webinar and the challenge!
→ I’ve done low carb before and it didn’t work! I felt like crap the entire time.
Then you simply weren’t in a state ketosis. You probably weren’t eating enough fat. You probably were eating too much protein, so you were basically hungry all the time.
No diet that makes you hungry will ever work in the long run. Ketosis is all about controlling your hunger so you run on your own body’s fat stores.
→ How long does it take to get into ketosis?
This will vary greatly from person to person. Some can get into it within a few days, others it might take a month or more. The webinar and the Keto Manual for the challenge will go into great depth on the how’s of getting into ketosis.
→ Is ketosis safe?
This is a myth that stems again from uneducated people about what it actually is. With the plan being low carb, that doesn’t mean it is without nutrition. In fact, you will actually be getting more nutrients then you are probably used to. So everything will start to work properly again.
Vitamins and Minerals will turn on enzymes that have been dormant; enzymes will control your hormones; your hormones will control YOU– this will include performance, energy, fat loss, sleep, feel good neurotransmitters, and more!!!
The real dangers are the carbohydrates, and especially consuming too many of them– even if they are considered ‘healthy’ by many so called dietitians and experts. Running on glucose as your major source of fuel increases triglycerides, the bad cholesterol, causes inflammation, and opens you up to any myriad of chronic sicknesses and disease.
→ Why 47-Days? Why not 30-day challenge like most challenges?
I’m not a normal person 🙂 I mean I’m living my life as an Improvement Warrior! So I work everyday at not being ‘normal or average’ by any means.
Two reasons– 1. I don’t like even numbers. 2. In 30-days some people might not be in a fully keto-adopted state. The time it takes for a person to get into it and feel the benefits of it could take as little as a week up to 6 weeks. But the manual and the accountability that we have set up will ensure you get there as soon as possible.
→ How many calories should I consume?
That’s the beauty of keto. You don’t need to count. You eat when your hungry, not by the clock.
But you do need to eat. Remember calories are ENERGY to your body and mind. No energy coming in, regardless of the type of nutrition plan, your body and mind will not work properly.
→ I don’t want to lose weight. I just want to get healthy? Is this good for that?
YES! In fact it is what keto is for. This is a ‘getting healthy’ diet, not a weight loss diet. Again weight and fat loss will occur, that’s one part of being healthy.
The other parts include the things that really matter for a healthy body to not only function properly but to thrive! So fasting insulin and blood glucose will get under control, blood pressure drops, triglycerides go way down, bad cholesterol goes down, good cholesterol goes up, and on and on.
→ Will I have to give up _____ forever?
It depends on what your goals are and what _____ actually is. If your goal is to stay in ketosis then a lot of things will have to be eliminated. But during this challenge you will find a lot of new things that taste just as good or even better as _______.
I usually eat ketogenic 90-95% of the time, the other 5-10% is paleo. This is for the week. So this allows me to eat a little more carbs, like sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash and such. Eating these more ‘carby’ foods is kind of a treat. Sometimes I’ll do a more sugary type of fruit as well like mango or pineapple.
Eating this way never knocks me out of ketosis, because it’s done in moderation, but it does knock my total level down a bit. But I’m training and eating to increase my strength and performance in my workouts.
If _____ is pizza or a donut then you have to weigh the consequences with what you are training for?
→ I have type 2 diabetes, will this plan work for me?
Again, I’m not a doctor, but I wouldn’t trust a regular physician unless they were specifically practicing non-traditional medicine. With that said, in my opinion, if your doctor is ‘managing’ your diabetes, so you come back every month or so, then I would find a new doctor. Type 2 diabetes is reversible and curable.
The ketogenic diet plan is one way to help reverse it. With type 2 diabetes it’s all about issues with maintaining and controlling blood sugar and insulin. 2 things that the ketogenic diet does perfectly.
In the manual we go over a host of diseases and issues that the ketogenic diet can help or even cure.
→ Are Workouts provided as well?
You will have the option to join our strength & conditioning fitness program in Hilliard, OH (included in your entry into the keto challenge). Or our online workout program LBN Online Strength & Fitness Workouts ($10 for 47-days of access (50% off).
Both programs will be sent to you with more information once you register for the challenge.
→ I did this before and had amazing results! Is there a way for me to help spread the word?
Yes! We have a referral program (also known as an affiliate program) where you can help to spread the word for this challenge. We will actually pay you a referral commission for each person who joins our challenge. Check it out here.
