Well…I’ve been hinting at something big coming up and it has begun today. This is my first interview to the world about my Keto journey and I feel blessed by God to be able to share this with you.

Brian Williamson (Creator of all of the Ketovangelist brands that I share with you and Danny Vega the rockstar of fitness, powerlifting, and sculpting the body gave me the honor of interviewing me and I’ve been bursting to share it with you and here it is.

Praise God that He answers prayer as it was Him who brought me to this way of life so if I didn’t say it in the interview due to nervousness all glory goes to Him!! Be blessed and I also want to thank Chris Duckett for all of the follow up and taking care of any questions that I had.

Be blessed an I pray that you enjoy it…more to come soon!

Someone is in my mind today…maybe it’s you.

You feel that Keto is too hard.

You feel that you can’t “do this”.

You hear the voices of those around you who continue to say negative things about your new life and new way of healing your body.

You feel “worthless” and despite being AWESOME you continue to allow yourself and others to sabotage the “healing of your body/life”.

You were on my heart today for a purpose and I feel compelled to tell you that YOU ARE WORTH BEING GOOD TO YOURSELF!!!

Know that there will always be people who speak the negative towards your life BUT YOU don’t have to be apart of the negativity as YOU can choose to “do you” and live your life free of what others “think” that you should do or how you should live your life.

I’m here to confess to you that I can feel your strength even through the screen of this social medium and you are much stronger than you think and you are more than capable of molding yourself into the best you that you can be…all that you have to do is NOT GIVE UP!!

Do me a favor before I leave you. Go over to that mirror…you know the one that you abhor because you hate the person that you see looking back at you and tell that person…I LOVE YOU DESPITE YOUR FAULTS AND YOUR FAILURES AND YOU ARE WORTH THIS!!!

The best and brightest in this world are “failures” at one time or another but they all realize that failures are simply stepping stones that can be used to build a mansion of success.

So hang in there…you got this…and you are so awesome and loved more than you know.

Now choose today to love yourself because you are worth it so keep calm and Keto on!

I’m always amazed at people who say that they want to lose weight or achieve better health or improve some medical condition with keto since they have seen how it is worked for me and want the results that I have but are not willing to does what I did and even stick with it to see the desired result.

They want to do it “their way” and my word to you is “go ahead…it’s your life” and I move on getting healthier and healthier while they remain caught in their own trap.

I also love how people are not willing to give up things that are harming them and will even say “oh…I don’t know if I can live without that” or “I can’t give that up” not realizing that that is an addictive mindset that God never intends for us to have.

For example. When the body has to deal with alcohol the body recognizes it as a poison and to keep it from killing you it basically reroutes most of its functionality to the liver so that it can metabolize it into a less harmful state and thus be excreted out of the body.

This process takes time and the entire time that this is happening no healing occurs, there is no repairing of muscle tissues, and to the person who is trying to lose body fat you must be aware that while the body in this protective process EVERYTHING that you eat regardless of whether it’s healthy or not (even Keto food) is immediately stored as fat on the body.

Over time as this process is repeated time and again the body starts to adapt and give up fighting what you are doing to it and the result is a dangerous fatty liver that can shorten your life in the worst and in the least make it very difficult to lose body fat.

So when I explain this process to someone who seeks my advice on losing body fat or who is seeking to reverse or improve a metabolic medical condition that they need to give up drinking alcohol at least for the first month or two of keto and they tell me “I don’t know if I can give it up” (whether it’s alcohol or certain foods) I tell them “it appears that you have something much more serious and that is a burgeoning addiction that you need to deal with because what you are saying to me is that “it” is more important than your health, possibly having more time with your loved ones, or improving your condition.”

This behavior is also mirrored in our walk with God as we show our true colors when we are not willing to give up something that He is telling us to give up when we know that He knows what is best for our lives.

So I ask you today…what do you want? What goals do you want to achieve? Are you unknowingly bearing an addiction that may be killing you body and/or spirit?

If you “can’t” live without it for sometime (more than a couple of months) even when you know that it is harming you then you have your answer and this is the time for you to do something about it.

If you pray the pray!

If you do something else then do that (I prefer prayer myself).

BUT DO SOMETHING and stop being a slave to that thing that you know is slowly (or quickly) killing you.

Hey…I know from experience that getting on the road to healing from an addiction be it hidden or other is not easy but I can promise you that if you make those changes that you won’t regret it.

Take the time to be the best YOU that YOU can be and let nothing be it the enemy or more often your “flesh” if you are a “believer” or if not then whatever you believe don’t allow “it” to stop you!

I believe in you so start believing in yourself as you deserve to be healthy.

Said in love,

The truth is starting to come out more and more. It won’t be long before even the sugar, grain, and Pharma funded media will have to take notice because the evidence is all over social media and is being “shared” and people’s lives are being changed.

If you are having heart issues, suffering from T2 diabetes, clots, HBP, and diseases of brain tissues (to include brain injury and people whose family has a history of brain disease) you are the people who immediately need to cut sugar, grains, and all forms of carbohydrates (except for incidental ones in green leafy veggies and a moderate amount from nuts and seeds) out of your diet.

That poison is NOT worth your continued suffering and yes you will have withdrawals and/or cravings but “this too shall pass” and there are strategies to help you cope with these issues just as there are strategies that help people when they quit smoking and the reason that you think that you can’t do it or cannot see yourself never having “this or that” (bread for example) IS proof that the addiction exists.

What do we tell people that we suspect of alcoholism? “If it’s not a problem then you should be able to give it up?”…right?

Yet daily people who want to get off medicines, lose weight, relieve the symptoms of depression, reverse their diabetes, help prevent cancer or if they have it help their bodies fight it, help get rid of “brain fog”, help mitigate heart disease…all which can be helped by ditching the carbs, sugar, and grains tell me much like the addict that they CANNOT or HAVE TO or CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT their favorite food (I definitely said that about Popeyes and donuts 😂) which if we were again talking about alcohol or drugs would be the very picture of what we describe as an addicted person.

Lastly, you don’t have to continue to live this way. Yes it will take some adjustment and work but in the end aren’t you worth it? Isn’t it worth taking the chance to try so that you could have a better chance at living longer to be there for more things with you family and friends?

No carb, sugar, or grain that is killing you should EVER come before you beige there for your loved ones OR for yourself for that matter.

You are more than worth it!!!

So make good food decisions starting right now and watch your life change!

Your “body is the temple of the living God”.

Start treating it as such!!

President Trump is not keeping you from walking out your front door and helping your neighbor.

He’s not keeping you from feeding he homeless.

As far as I know he is not keeping you from visiting hospitals to encourage the sick, or help the widow, or be a mentor to the fatherless child.

You can still get out and help someone today and if you are a Christian you are blessed to be in a country that you have the ability to do your “real” job and that is to spread the message of the salvation and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My message today is that though we have the right to discourse on politics whether the president is Trump, Bush, Obama, or whomever let’s not get so blinded by politics that we lose our spiritual eyes that open our hearts that moves our feet in God’s direction to help others and more importantly save souls for the Kingdom of God.

If you are a Christian who is vocal about anything “racial” that is directed towards your race but seem to lose your voice when your race is racial towards other races know that you are a hypocrite and are more aligned with THIS world than you are with Jesus Christ.

This doesn’t mean that we ignore any injustice directed at a particular race. What it does mean is that we don’t ignore the wrongs that the race that we have been categorized to be a part of by this world’s system commit either and we should be just a vociferous in calling said wrongs out within our own racial construct as we do others.

Having said that my prayer is THEN that the “Christian” after accomplishing a level of growth to be able to do that will THEN grow further to realize that “race” and all of the issues that come with it is worldly in nature and will never be solved by “man” and can/will only be dealt with righteously when the blood of Jesus Christ is applied to the construct so much to the point that we all open our eyes and the only color that we see of each other is red.

Then and only then will we see each other in the proper context that Christ died for and that is for us (the church) to stop allowing the world and its ways of handling race to influence us (His people) and keep us from handling it with His wisdom, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, and love.

Pray for one another, live for one another, do what is right, shin what is wrong, and in all things put the teachings of Jesus ahead of the leanings of this world that is ruled by satan.

2 John 8-10 (NIV):

8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them.”

During my quiet time God showed me how in “today’s church” that we compromise and conform to this world far to often to keep “peace” (it’s a false peace because Jesus is the only true peace), to keep our governmental tax exempt status, to keep from being litigated against, to keep from being accused of bigotry, or to not offend people.

The truth is that we are an imperfect people that God chooses to use to spread the message of salvation of our perfect Jesus and lately many “churches” are preaching “a different Jesus” that is found within the Holy Bible.

This false jesus (false so no BIG J!) that is being taught…often in churches that many of us attend is “okay” with or gives sin a pass, approves of current feministic or chauvinistic teachings being taught the church that are NOT found in God’s Word, approves of the murder of His created handi-work via abortion, approves of disrespect towards our national leaders depending on which party they are affiliated with or which “color” they are, that it is okay to “accuse” someone today of things that their ancestors did, that it is okay to align against His chosen people Israel with nations/peoples who do not serve our God, and among other things allow other “teachings” (people from other faiths or within our midst) to stand in our pulpits and preach a foreign message than the one that we are taught is the truth.

This should not be dear brothers and sisters so let’s be encouraged today to repent of this sin of allowing sin and untruthful messages to be given access to the world through our pulpits and/or out of our mouths.

Let’s ask forgiveness today of the Lord for walking in agreement with the world on issues to simply “keep the peace” when Jesus (in love but most certainly ferociously) confronted these issues (and whether you like it or not) so that sinners, the church that they make up, and the world has a chance to walk eternally in TRUE PEACE with Him.

He loves you today and so do I!!

Be blessed, have a Jesus-filled day, and If I don’t speak to you again this year via the blog have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
