The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Keto-Green is the way of eating, and living I developed when I entered perimenopause, and I’ve shared it in the hope that it helps other women combat the changes their bodies go through during this time. With a foundation in the keto diet, I emphasize alkaline foods and ensuring your body maintains a neutral pH. Not only has KetoGreen helped women manage their changing bodies, many of lost weight following it!

Have you ever wondered how to know if your body is in ketosis?

In this episode, I talk about why you need to test your urine to make sure you’re in - and staying in - ketosis. When our bodies metabolize in ketosis, we’re functioning at our best, and this promotes weight loss, as well.

However, while it’s important to stay in ketosis, it’s also super vital that we’re maintaining a neutral pH level. By eating alkaline foods and regularly testing our urine’s pH levels, we can keep some of the side effects of the keto diet at bay.

I also cover what a typical Keto-Green plate consists of, and what foods we should all be striving to eat every single day. Eating a variety of food is important, but we all need to make sure we’re consuming lots of leafy greens daily.

Then I take some questions from within my KetoGreen Community on Facebook and answer them! These questions are so insightful and have definitely brought up points that so many people on the Keto-Green diet have considered. What can help one can usually help many! If you have any questions about following the Keto-Green diet, definitely join my Facebook group and share with the community.

“Keto-Green is getting our body into a state of ketosis and working together to get our body nourished so that our urine pH is alkaline.” (2:22)

“Greens add fiber, they add alkalinizers, they’re loaded with nutrients to help support detoxification, as well, and that’s critical to healthy hormone balance.” (6:24)

“I recommend drinking a tall glass of water when you wake up, because you want to rehydrate right away.” (11:44)
