Now I know why I can’t seem to stick to keto…

Because extremes never win!

I’ve always been wary when people say they “don’t drink” or “never eat carbs”…

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome to take a break from something… I’ve done that lots too and a reset is great πŸ™Œ

But to go as far as to say I never do something, is to inflict extreme rules around something.

It’s never black-and-white.

Rigid rules and expectations are the ego’s playground… sounding noble at first, but in essence setting us up to fail.

And then when we do, we get to feel like a bad person.

So, for the last year and a half, I’ve been struggling to stay on the keto diet.

It was good intentions first – to heal a gut issue and was recommended by my naturopath.


I love “good” food.

The secret is out!

And so, then I would eventually slip. And as Tony Robbins says, once he slips he keeps on slipping!

I hear you Tony!

And so for me the weight would come back.

With me left feeling defeated.

But I had an ah-ha moment… I don’t like extremes and don’t do well with them long term.

No wonder it wasn’t working πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

And so, my NEW approach is, what did I love about keto and what made me feel great?

That is what I will stick with moving forward, while lightning-up on the “rules” around it.

And please… what is with this craze to look and act “perfect” whatever that is!!

And guess what?

When I allow myself that grace, I operate more from more of a self-love place, and come close to a keto regime anyway!

Funny how that happens right?

So Amber, what rules do you need to let go of?

In life and business?

What rules are keeping you in such a place of rigidity that you’ve forgotten how to be flexible and compassionate?

And I’m not just talking about for others – this is for YOU!

When we lighten up our energy, we allow for the most amazing things to come in πŸ’«

Happy weekend and let’s connect on social too πŸ’›
