Yes,I am actually a Dad! I fell upon keto over 4 years ago after putting on a good amount of weight (see picture below) and finding myself using a CPAP for sleep apnea (I would stop breathing 56x an hour!). Suddenly, my weight dropped, my sleep apnea was gone and I was running like a 20 year old! In fact, I ran my first half-marathon in April 2018 in just under 2 hours! In a short while, I felt like I shaved years off my life! I still do. To be able to help others feel this way, or just feel better about themselves is the most rewarding thing I have ever felt. Your success stories inspire me daily!
Healthy, delicious and convenient! Keto has gained a great amount of popularity recently for weight loss, but it's actually been around since the early 1920's. Weight loss is only one part of why Dad's Keto Kitchen was launched though. To me, it's about being healthier overall and weight "adjustment". Dad's is about flavor, being satiated, awake, alive and avoiding the cardboard flavors we've all been presented when trying to avoid gluten and sugar. Yes, eating healthy CAN taste good! To date, we have offered 108 meals, 41 pizzas, over 150 bakery items (which include 20 unique whoopie pies).
Dad's is also about convenience. Our schedules have become so demanding that take out became the only option. Not anymore. Now, Dad's offers you freshly made, perfectly portioned, macro-balanced meals and specialty bakery products at you're fingertips, ready to eat in a couple of minutes. And they're made locally and delivered within 24 hours of being made!
The truth is our body has it's own built-in weight management system. Through poor diets, modified food sources and poor advice from our government, the SAD (Standard American Diet) has caused our bodies to become confused and angry. Insulin spikes, inflammation, digestive issues, Type 2 diabetes...the list goes on. How do you reset your body's management system? Proper diet - good, healthy fats, moderate protein and very low carbs. So many of our health issues are caused by inflammation within our bodies - IBS, Arthritis, NA fatty liver, ulcerative colitis, even dementia it's now thought, etc. (Did you know cancer can't survive without a sugar source?). So much of this is directly caused by our food intake! Nearly all of the issues we fight today can be cured or managed through better diet. It's how we were built! But like your car, we need the right fuel. Think about that.
Am I a doctor or nutritionist? No. In fact, I disagree with most of the doctors and nutritionists out there. I will however soon be a certified Keto and Carnivore coach and have recently joined the Society for Metabolic Health Practitioners, which is overseen by some of the very best professionals in the industry - doctors, nutritionists, and more. Really, though, I am just a guy who loves making fresh, healthy food and helping others become healthier, too. It took me 48 years to find out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Turns out I'm Dad.
Welcome to Dad's Keto Family. Please have a seat at the table. Dinner will be served shortly. Yes, you CAN have dessert! 😉
