Doing Keto just for weight loss is wrong
Gaining weight is the consequence of a bad lifestyle and nutrition. Naturally, some other factors can cause weight gain, but nutrition plays a major role. Moreover, if we have been living an unhealthy lifestyle for some period of time, the first thing we notice is our accumulated body fat!
For example, gaining weight in muscle mass would not be a problem at all. However, excess body fat and a general lack of energy for daily tasks is a sign you need to heal. This condition is just a symptom of something else going on in your system. Why would you store excess fat if your body was functioning perfectly?
No such thing as healthy overweight person
Nowadays, obesity and metabolic syndromes are the reality for the majority of humans! Here’s a simplified explanation. Basic education about human hormones teaches us that there are hormones that are anabolic – which means they grow our body mass. For example, some of them help grow muscles, bones or other functional tissues. Other hormones predominantly serve to store fat.
Insulin is the most known for that. Furthermore, it lowers blood glucose after consuming carbohydrate-rich foods. Not being able to keep your blood glucose in order results in loads of insulin. It also enables our body to store fat. If you have more than 25% of body fat, this means you are secreting insulin too often. This can grow to a very unhealthy level quite quickly! Healing with the Keto Mediterranean diet can prevent this!

Healing with Keto Mediterranean lifestyle -understanding the need for healing
A healthy overweight or healthy obese person is an oxymoron! Additionally, various approaches to the Ketogenic diet resulted in many disappointments. For this reason, some people blame Keto for nutrient deficiencies, yo-yo effects, hair loss, muscle mass loss etc… Healing protocol should not have these side effects. You can’t just accept them and say it’s normal to feel that way on Keto. What if your Keto was not done properly? Maybe, this is why you got side effects? Healing with the Keto Mediterranean diet includes zero negative effects, zero deficiencies.
How does healing with Keto Mediterranean protocol work? We place an emphasis on precious micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino and fatty acids). For this reason, we need to learn which foods are rich in micronutrients. When it comes to macros, we want more protein, moderate fat and extremely low carbohydrates. However, this doesn’t mean we will take any protein source. Firstly, we will choose foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, (ruminant animals, seafood, pasture-raised eggs). Secondly, we will choose a protein that is easy to digest (younger animals such as lamb or veal).
When it comes to cooking, we have to try making everything slow at low temperatures because we want to preserve vitamins. Fish, ruminant meat or eggs are our main ingredients. Everything else can be served as a side dish. For example, this can be a small portion of vegetables, but if you cannot digest vegetables, you can work with the Zero Carb version.
To understand better what we mean by healing with the Keto Mediterranean diet, let’s see three basic protocols you can apply…
Healing with Keto Mediterranean – protocol 1 (Heal your gut)
Heal your gastro-intestinal system, your guts and your immunity! This has to be the first task! Regardless of your condition, everything starts with the proper utilisation of nutrients! If your system is unable to process or absorb micronutrients, deficiencies will occur. This is why it’s crucial to eat anti-inflammatory foods, organic and clean ingredients and to cook at home from scratch!
Additionally, we need to work on healing our gut! This is why industrial sweeteners, Keto flours, (yes even coconut flour) nuts, and cow’s dairy have to be forgotten for a good period of time!
By switching to fermented goat and sheep dairy in small amounts, eating easy to digest protein, slow-cooked meat and fish, daily bone-broth and homemade grass-fed gelatine jello you will already work on replenishing your gut microflora! Let’s not forget our pickled quail eggs, they could be the ultimate remedy for your guts!
Healing with Keto Mediterranean – protocol 2 (Fix your deficiencies)
Let’s see, have you ever thought about fixing micronutrient deficiencies naturally? How about doing it without supplements? For example, we have been healthy for years without a single supplement. Healing with Keto occurred without a single pharmaceutical product. The same goes for all people switching to KMD! Once you take care of the process of sourcing, preparing and enjoying your food, you will notice that nutrient deficiencies are diminishing.
If you are aware of your deficiency, all you need to do is find the best foods and have them on daily basis! Healing with the Keto Mediterranean diet is all about the ancient approach to finding good food. Simply, as your gastrointestinal system heals, your ability to absorb nutrients will improve.
Healing with Keto Mediterranean – protocol 3 (Stay Ketonised)
Did you know, this is our slogan? It’s something that represents Greek Goes Keto life philosophy! Furthermore, to be Ketonised doesn’t mean you’ll obsessively chase your ketosis. It means you will keep your daily carb intake low. So, natural Ketosis will occur without your effort. Of course, you will follow the three KMD postulates whenever possible. Finally, you will give your best to stay positive and believe you can heal naturally.
