IS WORKING FROM HOME REALLY BETTER THAN GOING TO A WORKPLACE?

Hello again! As you many of you know my name is Narda Gillogly, founder of ketowithoutborders.com , where up to date views are shared  that hopefully enhance the health and wealth of visitors to this site.

stress-free-environmentBefore getting TOO DARN EXCITED about the prospects of working from home, make sure you think about all aspects of this first.

Many of you are envisioning getting up mid morning and making a nice cup of coffee or tea.  Breakfast is optional – your choice!Narda_face

In your visual you may have already made the money you needed to be in your dream home.  You are sauntering past that big bay window (looking over a lake of course) to your desk where you slide into a big comfy chair where your state of the art computer is patiently waiting for you to fire it up.

You have mastered your business and most of your worries are long behind you.

After a little light work to ensure all systems are running smoothly, you are called for a delicious but nourishing lunch.  You care about your health more than ever so you can enjoy what you have accomplished.

Okay, well, this is my envisionment – is this even a word?  You get the idea and I would love to know what you are picturing.

I have compiled this list of pros and cons and hope you will add to them via the comment section:

PROS of working from home:

1. No boss.

2. More flexibility as far as project completion.

3. No transportation costs.

4. No losing valuable time due to travelling.

5. You get paid what you are worth – if you work hard you get paid for it.  Unless there is a commission or bonus structure built in at your workplace, you get paid the same no matter how hard you work.

6. Job security.  You control this instead of someone else.

7. Freedom.

CONS of working from home:

1. Temptation to put off working and clean your house or go for a swim in your lovely new pool (or that lake).

2.  People, pets and things (TV for example) may distract you.  In a workplace you are dealing with like minded people within a work oriented environment so completion of tasks may be easier.

3.  Fellowship may be missed although this could go either way.  Sometimes just having one person who rubs you the wrong way can really ruin your day despite getting along great with everyone else.

4.  If you are not self motivated you will have a tough time completing tasks.  Being self-employed feels like 2 steps forward, one step back.

MY SUMMARY:  Your home business has to be fun and interesting to you.  It has to still be fun in 10 years from now so choose wisely.  Don’t waste your money until you think this through.  Help with this is just below.

DO NOT quit your day job until you are in a comfortable position to do so, although, some can take the plunge and have ‘what it takes’ to make money quickly.  For the rest of us, we should start small and work at something we are truly passionate about.

Almost no business can make it today without a website.  All of your competitors have one.  Some do 100% of their business online.

The only way we will push on to succeed is to Love what we do.

As I stated, please add on any pros or cons of your own.

Is a High Fat Low Carb Diet Plan Crazy?

This high fat low carb diet known as the ketogenic diet has it’s haters, just like any other.  I have read articles where there are quotes either taken the Narda_facewrong way, or partial quotes so one doesn’t see the whole picture.  Everytime I read one I always challenge the author to do their due diligence and to date no one has come at me or my website with real proof of what they are saying.

I hear that the diet is not sustainable over time.  It certainly is and you can have carb-up time once you are set; sweet potato anyone?  You have to use your own intelligence as you go.  How long you remain on it is totally up to you.

No one has ever become seriously ill from doing the diet properly.  Listen to your body.

It has been referred to as a quick fix.  That is a pretty vague description.  It works both short term and long term.

We Need To Educate Ourselves Before Teaching Others

A big issue is that people unfortunately still quote portions of the American Diabetes Association’s literature.  Anyone who has kept up with new proven studies realizes that their diet recommendations are actually making people sicker.  Read everything; not just this website.

There is a clinical dietitian who’s name I have seen every time I see negative reviews on the ketogenic diet pop up that haters love to quote.  It is a spokesperson (scary) from a hospital in Ohio; I won’t embarrass them by saying more regarding their identity.  They claim this diet makes people lose muscle mass and enter starvation mode.  Wow.  There are growing numbers of body builders engaging in this diet.  Some have even developed their own websites.  Fat is such a cleaner fuel for your body than carbs are so you won’t starve either.  Counting carbs is rarely needed as fat is so satisfying.  This person categorizes sugars, starches and grains as nourishing foods.  What a grain brain!

I get frustrated when people pass on misinformation.  Does it frustrate you?

Stop the weight gain during Perimenopause

Many women, typically in their forties begin to experience a rude awakening.  They begin to experience a weight gain during perimenopause, a state we enter just before full blown menopause hits us at roughly 51 years old.  Perimenopause can stretch out for years and it is never too early or too late to work on keeping your weight in tact or even losing some.  The ketogenic diet, like any worthwhile venture, takes some mastering, however the results are so worth the effort.

sleepingWow…I can sleep again!

Giving Encouragement To Epilepsy Sufferers

When you give a little extra of yourself, you will find it flowing back in spades, maybe not right away, but it will happen.  You will find me doing my little rants on being kind to and not judging others plus helping one another on our healthy weight loss journey.  Please remember:  This is my opinion and it is my  honest view of how it has worked for me and so many others, the numbers  constantly compounding.

I would like to touch on one of the many conditions the ketogenic diet has evolved to suppress.  If you really need to have a celebrity named who whole-heartedly  supports the woman-epilepsysuccess of the ketogenic diet, look no further than the accomplished and respected Meryl Streep.  One could spend eons talking about her incredible journey and I hope to in a related upcoming post.   There are several heart warming Youtube videos that she is featured in starting back in 1994 referring to childhood epilepsy.

Johns Hopkins Medical Center has used the ketogenic diet to successfully treat epilepsy since the 1920’s in both children and adults.  More diseases such as cancer and diabetes are being treated all of the time.  A full list of ailments it is currently being used to remedy is listed  on the Q & A page listed above.

Losing weight and/or getting healthier is actually analgous to making an income online.  If you are new to either, you first will need to make an effort to understand a few of the inner and outer workings.  Once you do, and it won’t take long, the rewards are nothing short of incredible.  You just have to take that first step.  Suddenly the lights start going on and with each small victory you are driven harder to do more.  You just want to!

My passion and personal victory with the ketogenic diet drives me to help others by keeping this website a constantly evolving forum with up to date information that makes the journey through ketosis as fun and enjoyable as possible.  An enjoyable diet?  Absolutely.

 You are never alone.  Please keep in touch!

 

How to get into Ketosis

You will need to eat a high fat low carb diet.  Simple.  This is not a high protein diet.  You will be keeping your protein consumption pretty modest as too much is not only hard on your kidneys, excess protein converts to glucose which in turn will raise your blood sugar.  Spikes in blood sugar can increase your risk for diabetes.  Ketogenic diets, in my opinion, have the best advantages as far as for what I need.

upsetIs the Ketogenic Diet not just Another Fad ?

This diet was its incubation stage circa 1911 and was named in the 1920’s. It is here to stay.  Low fat has been around less than 40 years and I’d be shocked if it isn’t debunkedpeople completely in a few years.  All fad diets fade.  Too many companies make money from the low fat game so it will be tough to dismantle.  The ketogenic diet was not mainstream and for decades was used for specific health conditions.

There is a slow carb diet which I have actually tried.  You get a cheat day each week, however, I was still eating carbs.  I did lose weight the first week and that was exciting, but, that was it.  Plateauing for the following 3 weeks discouraged me.  I guess I just lost water.  I like the food choices much better with keto although for a diet, the slow carb was not bad if you are a bean and lentil fan.  I have to say I do enjoy the books put out by the author.  He does mention ketosis briefly even in his book so I investigated it from here.  I am an eternally curious sketpic.  Everything has to be totally ripped apart and analyzed.

It really boils down to what you can live with long term especially taste wise.  I did not want to give up any of my favourite foods, did not want to be a gym rat and truly love the ‘feeling fantastic’ part both mentally and physically.  No compriomse for me; I had decided to be 100% selfish with this and have it all my way, otherwise, I could not have made weightsthe commitment to this as a lifestyle.

Deep down I like to think we each know what is best for us.  Virtually everyone who will read this has the intellect to know at least what is good for them.    Nothing can top the fact that eating well and getting regular exercise is always the best route at the end of the day.  I love the joke where the overweight man says, “I tried absolutely everything to lose weight, I mean EVERYTHING, well, almost everything.  I have not attempted the fad where you eat properly and exercise.”

Sorry folks but there is no pill or anything you can sprinkle on your food that is going to make you thin.  If you are sure that it worked for someone, rest assured, something else was definitely going on behind the scenes, and your buddy just  happened to be taking  some pill, etc.  on or about the same period of time.  That person may not even be conscious of this issue that was happening at the time, at least not the effects on his weight.  A person can have any number of conditions that could cause weight loss.   The stress and anxiety of job change or loss, moving, a break-up, an accident or death in the family can cause weight loss due to a lack of appetite.late-riser

If there was just one product out there that could cause significant weight loss all on its own, hundreds of thousands of businesses directly or indirectly related to weight loss would go under… and, they pay taxes… ssoooo… The weight loss industry sees people tossing away billions each year.  A few are helped, you know, nothing is totally wrong as even a broken clock is right twice day.  As you pay for that magic product that had you convinced to part with your money,  you had doubts, didn’t you?  Your heart and even your head said yes but your gut was saying, “Do not do it dude or dudette…you know better.”  The greatest motivator that the human psyche possesses , more so than love or hate or dietboardfear, is, you got it folks …  it is HOPE … and that is what advertisers are selling you.  Pause before you pay.

A low carb diet plan is easy to get the hang of and when done properly the hunger and cravings disappear.  Never did I dream the late night sweet cravings would stop.  Even if I am up late, I am good.  I can always pop a fat bomb (f-bomb) or two.  They are like a really filling chocolate bar in some cases or are just like Werthers candy.  They can easily be made into several forms to satisfy a favourite sweet or savoury, etc. flavoured snack.   Fat is the most satisfying macronutrient.  It fills you the quickest and  lets you know you are full before carbs will or even protein.  F-Bombs are a lifesaver as they are virtually all fat therefore you keep your ratios in check, not to mention your are sated quickly with something yummy and just sweet enough.  You do not feel lousy afterwards like you would after a carb loaded snack…and…you did not cheat!    I am finally in dreamland now at a decent hour because of ketosis so I generally sleep right through what I call the witching hour – being the craving hour.

takeaway-high-carbNorth Americanized Chinese food is a perfect example of something you can fill up on since carbs do not let you know you are sated until you are almost bloated.  This chow down that just made you feel full and even sleepy will in no time cause you to think you need more food again i.e. carb up again!

If you have read through this site you will know of the slew of uncanny health benefits a high fat low carb diet will provide when done properly.  The loss of viseral fat which this diet attacks, that nasty fat which dangerously creeps into and grows in your abdominal cavity is a huge bonus.  It is quite simply a remarkable diet that is not really a big moneydiet-viseral-fat maker for many people.  There are books about keto and recipes but I generally find anything a person produces to promote this diet normally does it because it has helped them or someone close to them so it is at least initially created ‘from the heart’.

  Simply changing to a high fat low carb diet could possibly be all you ever need to stay healthy!

As you may know about me already, I was looking to find a way to stop hot flashes, not initially to lose weight during menopause. I hope to discover how hard it is to lose weight after menopause in the very near future!  That can not come soon enough, however, I am in no rush to age and at least menopause is much more tolerable now.  I forget I am in it at all some days.  This beautiful high fat diet sure takes the edge off.  I understand that with each 10 to 12 pounds you get off, you will notice a drop in the amount of hot flashes.  So maybe it was the weight loss or maybe it was cutting the carbs virtually eliminating the flashing. That was something I read after losing weight so I did not get the opportunity to gage that detail for myself.  Darn.  I love tracking things, too.executive
