Help Me, Help You and Me

Help me, help you and me.

So far, I have been on a journey for myself, I had to start taking better care of myself. I turned to keto as a first step. Keto led me to Shawn Stevenson, who taught me that I could possibly heal everything that is wrong with me by changing my diet. This led to me trying to offer some advice in my Facebook groups and my blog. This changed me in such powerful ways. Those who told me I had inspired them or helped them get over a hump they were having trouble with, was more fulfilling than anything I had ever experienced. I am just a real guy on a journey to becoming the best version of myself I can. I am not perfect, and I do not know everything. I freely share the advice I learn from my “experts”. Those experts are more than I can name, but for starters Shawn Stevenson, Mark Sisson, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Berg, and many more. There are three podcasts I regularly watch Lewis Howes – the School of Greatness, Tom Bilyeu – Impact Theory, and Rich Roll’s podcast. Each of these podcasts have interviewed all of those “experts” and many others. This is where my information comes from, and why I feel comfortable sharing it with others. The 5 commandments I came up with were from what I learned from mental health doctors, and behaviorists on how to create good habits. There was not a list I found somewhere, I take notes while listening to these podcasts and compile the information I think is powerful and share it with you. Hope that didn’t just cost me all my followers since you no longer need me. Followers are not what’s important, the information is the only thing that matters. I do not care where you get it. I just want you to get good information.

I was recently accused of doing what I do to try to find a wife or generate work. I am single and basically broke, but I am just trying to focus on being a better me and maybe help a few others too. This is far more important than trying to make a buck or find a date, although many of those experts talk about the importance of healthy relationships. One thing at a time, it is a journey not a race. I do not blame anyone for thinking this, but hope you know it is not true. I do think it is important to question the source of your information, especially when they try to sell you a product. Look, whenever I go try to find a new recipe, I get bombarded with advertisements just trying to get to the ingredients and instructions.The only thing I do that makes money is allow WordPress to advertise on my WordPress site. The 87 ads they showed in February earned me $.02 cents. This education I am getting on nutrition and how the body can use it, has changed my life forever and I just want to share it with anyone who wants listen, sorry I do not have a magic pill or meal plan to sell you. Know that the information I share is meant to be helpful, but I would also suggest you might do a little research once in a while to confirm if what I am passing along is true. I have been reluctant to say if you do all these things, you will hit all of your goals in no time and all your prayers have been answered. It does not work like that this is a journey, it will take time. I have only been at it for 11 weeks and started my nutritional education 5 weeks ago. I had great results my first 6 or 7 weeks and have been struggling a bit ever since. I have stayed Keto, and just stopped fasting for a week as I completed 2 36-hour fasts with only 2 days of regular eating in between. I was not ready for that and did them too close together, I make mistakes and have struggles too. I reset, I ate pretty heavy all week though still keto, and I gained 2 pounds for the week. I have already proven I can lose the weight, going up a few pounds does not bother me. Now I have new techniques I will be implementing and trying out. I also encourage each of you to experiment with your macros and new foods, to figure out what works best for your body. I want to help all of you, but we are all different and different things work for different people. If there is something specific you have a question on, or something you would like to learn more about, drop a comment and I will do my best to provide you with solid information. I wish I could focus all my time and energy into doing the blog and my keto group. Right now, my blog has just over 150 followers, and my keto group might have a dozen people in it.

Thanks to all of you, I am getting so much more than I am putting into this. So, I guess you guys have made me rich. I want to do all I can for you, just tell me how I can help.

Have a great day, and good luck on your journey.

Just beginning my keto journey. My goal is to lose 50 pounds and improve my overall health. I'm also hoping to build an audience I can interact with and learn from.

  1. In the end, we all have to be responsible for ourselves. I appreciate your diligence in wanting to share the best information with us. This little blog is a community where we can find support. Thanks for that, Mike!

    1. In the beginning it was just a way to hold myself accountable. As i learned more and could start to offer good advice to others, and they repayed me with their appreciatio . All that changed, and I wanted to do more and be more helpful. I am hoping to create a supportive community here, and as it continues to grow hopefully it will feel more like that. I really appreciate your interaction, as you are my #1 commentor. I’m hoping to get a little more interaction from others as this group grows. I thank you for your support.

  2. You’ve done quite a bit of research on intermittent fasting. I’m seeing conflicting info on what is best for specific age groups. It’s difficult to decide what is the best advice.

    1. From what I gather fasting is good for any age, it may just take a little longer to get the same results if we are a bit older and have a slower metabolism. It just takes a little longer to reach the different stages. Like the Dr. Who had her cancer survivors fast every night for 13 hours. Resulted in a 34% reduction in cancer recurrence rate I believe. All ages will receive some benefits, but those with a faster metabolism may get a little more. I will revisit this and see if I can clear it up a bit more.
