Becoming a Ketogenic Genius

When I started thinking about this learning project, I tried to think of something I could learn on the internet that would be useful to me in the future and not just for the duration of this class. I figured, what a better way than to use the class to become healthier and stick to it!

When I was searching, I found the ketogenic lifestyle. For those of you who don’t know, eating a ketogenic diet means eating low carb, moderate protein, and high fat macros. Basically, eating low carb and high fat puts your body into a state called ketosis, where your body burns fat instead of carbs. You can find the guide I will be referencing throughout here.

My plan for the learning project is to post about ketogenic meals, recipes, meals on the go, tips, and anything else I might stumble upon on the world wide web! In each post I will also update how I am feeling and the progress and changes I am experiencing. I also plan on teaming up with Laura Bieber for some posts. Laura is learning about her instant pot for her project so we will be collaborating to try out, and hopefully succeed at making some low carb recipes in the instant pot. My goal throughout this project is to feel healthier and become more comfortable in my own skin.

This is majorly stepping out of my comfort zone, so instead of dipping my toe I will just dive right in. I’m hoping to be able to see some physical changes throughout the semester. So, for the sake of record, here is a before photo:

Don’t mind my beautiful friends in this, I rarely take full body pictures that aren’t perfectly posed and positioned selfies so I had to scavenge to find it!

Stay tuned for more next week!

  1. What a great idea for a learning project! you get to learn about eating healthy and also get to eat it!
    with the trends of everything organic, everything avocado, and being vegan I think your learning project will be a hit.
    once again, great idea

  2. Julia, I think this is such a great learning project – I have heard through one of my classes this semester that it takes about 6 weeks to break a habit, so if you stuck with this lifestyle change for the semester you are well on your way! A lot of people I know are not comfortable with a full on body photo unless there are editing features, or a pose so great on you for putting yourself out there. Also, working a little with Laura I am sure will make things a little easier – having a support person helps so much!
