Ketogenic Paleo Diet Coaching

20


20 per session - Virtual OK

I can give you a bunch of my favorite resources including online diet journal & macronutrient trackers.

I mostly follow the ideas of Patricia Wahls who is an MD to avoid some of the pricy hucksterism that comes with any diet trend. I also like Mark Sisson because he cites research when he expresses an opinion in his Mark's Daily Apple blog.

I'm a big believer in making things practical & workable and this diet may not work for you. I'm very familiar with successful methods for behavior modification. And I think paleo & keto are great since if you're doing it right, the fats keep you satisfied so you're not trying to overcome cravings with willpower which is a losing game for most of us (as it was for me).

It's frustratingly hard to get good science based nutritional info. Doctors are very ignorant about nutrition and even nutritionists don't keep up with recent research as evidenced by my diabetic housemate rolling his eyes when we met with his nutritionist, because said several things that just patently aren't true. He wanted to believe his MD & nutritionist but in the end trusted me more and either them or the many one-twue-path fanatical diet bloggers.

Most people use it temporarily and then return to a non-ketogenic paleo for the longer term.

Training & Qualifications


I've been doing a paleo diet for 5 years and have been in ketosis multiple times adding up to about a year. And am trying to maintain ketosis most of the time for medical reasons. Have helped a couple people get their type 2 diabetes under control

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
