Kick-Start a New Keto-Green® You!

My Keto-Green® Diet, also referred to by me as my “K-A lifestyle” (Kick-Ass!)…really makes me feel fabulous…and I want that for you, too.

Here I will also answer a couple of common questions regarding getting started on a Keto-Green Diet. These are questions I routinely get in my hormone reset and detox programs. In future blogs I will try and continue answering additional questions, so do feel free to email my team at at any time and ask YOUR questions, too.

So excited to help you get going…

Why I Created My Keto-Green Diet

It is the best way I have found – in years of research and years of working with women and men on hormone reset and detox programs – to get healthy and become a highly efficient fat-burner. What’s not to like about that?

  2. Combining ketogenic principles with alkalinity! 
  3. The optimal diet!
  4. Adding in intermittent fasting!
  5. The health benefits of maca, and why it is a great alkalinity booster!

Frequently Asked Questions When Starting Keto-Green

How do I test my pH to see if I am alkaline?

You can use my Keto-pH® Uric Acid Test Strips!

How to use the strips:

1. Hold the strip furthest away from the test pad.
2. Pass test pad in urine stream or dip in urine filled cup.
3. Set flat on absorbent paper.
4. After 40 seconds, match to the ketone color chart.
5. After 60 seconds match to the alkaline color chart.
6. After 60 seconds, match to the uric acid chart.

Ideal Results:

Ketone levels: 1.5 and higher
pH: 7.0 and higher
Uric Acid: 100 to 300


What should I be drinking to help me remain alkaline?

  • First of all, hydration if really important (for getting/staying alkaline and for overall health!)
  • Water is really the best thing for you to drink! However…
  • Stop drinking water at least 20 minutes before you eat, and wait at least 20 minutes after eating (if eating something watery like soup), or wait at least 2 hours after eating if eating a high protein meal. This helps with your digestion
  • Do not drink water during your meal as it dilutes the enzymes you need to help you digest your food.
  • Use filtered water. Please do  not use bottled plastic water (that may leach chemicals).
  • Mineral water can be used.
  • Track the amount of water you drink using your Keto pH app. Most people don’t realize how deficient they are!
  • If you need a little energy boost…instead of reaching for something with caffeine (acidic), try my Mighty Maca® Plus Energy Elixer. Just put a tablespoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar (unfiltered) into a glass of your Mighty Maca (1-2 scoops), 1 teaspoon organic lemon juice, 1 cup filtered water, mix and…get going!

If you can’t seem to get alkaline no matter what you eat!

  • Don’t panic…it sometimes will take a while…you need to figure out what is going on with your body!
  • Some things that may interfere:
    • Dehydration
    • Stress (yes! so important to tame that cortisol!
    • Inflammation (a common trigger is alcohol…)
    • Food sensitivities (the reason we go on an elimination diet during my programs!)
    • Poor sleep
    • Certain medications
    • Blue light? Late night electronics
    • Toxic emotions, negative thoughts
    • Yeast overgrowth
    • Skin or cosmetic products, toxic cleaning agents (this is why I’ll be recommending a wonderful organic skin care line to you next week…stay tuned for a special gift you can get that includes a wonderful guide on toxicity in your home)

Read through my eBook and many Keto-Green related blogs for some hacks and tips on how to get and stay alkaline, and how to be successful on my Keto-Green Diet. 

And please share your journey with me! I’d love to know how my Keto-Green Diet works for you!
